The atmosphere and the service was excellent. Our waiter sang to us and with us, made the evening seem like we were back in Positano Italy.

The second time we have been for dinner and like the first time it was very good, I would have liked more red snapper.

We love the restaurant but felt very rushed from the moment we sat down. Our server was telling us to take our time but was quick to have us pay our bill.

It was for my 50th which was stated at the time of reservation. Nothing was said by waiter and not acknowledged which I felt was unusual as I’ve been there for birthdays in the past. The food was amazing as always

Tables were small and a little too cluttered. Not enough craft beer selection but food was really good and service was very good! Lights should be a litter dimmer for dinner for a better ambiance! I will definitely go back though!

Il Buco is one of my favourite restaurants in Barrie. We always come for our Anniversary and have brought many family and friends. Your chefs are very talented and your staff all go above and beyond! Always a great experience 😊

No our fiirst time to I’ll Buco! Great food. Nice atmosphere. Service is typically top notch ! This visit it was a bit too dark. Waiter spilled my dinner down my top and pants. Apologized. I think I should have had my glass of wine complimentary.

This is the second time we have been at this restaurant and we are pleasantly surprised by the great quality of the menu items, especially considering this was the Barrieliscious time. Very good and friendly service, especially considering how busy they were. It was nice that the person booking us couldn't
promise a window seat, but when we got there she put us by the window....... We have recommended Il Buco to many friends and relatives and they all loved it.

Our 2nd time at Il Buco, following a great meal last summer. This time accompanied by friends. We will definitely be back for a third. Gem of a restaurant - reasonable pricing, attentive service and delightful food. A gem.
