The food and service were GREAT! My friend and I met for dinner before an event at the WGA theater, and was so pleased with this choice. It seemed a little pricey, but service was excellent (very attentive, and so courteous and professional), and we did have wine and dessert, so maybe not as expensive as my brain is telling me it was.

This is a casual neighborhood Italian restaurant that is quiet enough for visiting with friends. Good food with plenty of choices, fairly priced wine, a full house and unrushed but attentive service led to a dining experience that ended up being the perfect atmosphere for lingering over desert and coffee and quiet conversation as our Saturday evening wound down. Our reservation was at 7:30 and we stayed until almost 10:00. We will always come back because it is a comfortable and enjoyable experience overall.

Food was excellent!! A bit pricey, but well worth it. We didn't know it at the time, but my son's wallet had fallen out of his pocket in the booth. We had left the restaurant and were walking down Wilshire Blvd. when the waiter came running down the street with the wallet. You can't beat that!!! I would recommend Il Buco to anyone.

We enjoyed a dinner with friends recently at Il Buco. We have been here many times before and the food is consistently good. The only negative is that the prices are rather high. Of course, it's in Beverly Hills, but similar restaurants in the area are not as pricey.

We went here on New Year’s Eve with friends, a party of 7 before going to a rooftop party to celebrate. Just hoping for a good meal & easy to order from the menu. This place was a great surprise! They were decorated for New Year’s Eve with balloons & passed out hats & horns too, but the best thing was the food here was amazing. We expected pizza but had none instead the pastas & their specials were all so delicious even the salads. We turned are LA friends onto a new spot for them! This is a true Italian gem with good service & great food for a good price! Try the lasagna!

Food and service were excellent. Very attentive waitstaff. It is a from scratch kitchen so you they are able to modify the menu choices according to your preferences
The dining room is attractive and comfy
They do have to spruce up there restrooms. The restrooms need a complete overhaul, at minimum ,they need to be painted

We have been to Il Buco before. The food is delicious, the service lovely, and it's a wonderful place to be able to have a conversation. It's quiet! It did not disappoint. The only negative is that the pricing is a bit high. But, certainly for a special occasion, it is a great place to eat.

After a first successful dinner a year ago, we decided to return to il Buco out with some friends. The experience turned out to be very disappointing. The service was rushed and incompetent. Drink orders came out wrong, the linguini al vongole was dry, the caprese was underwhelming and poorly presented. These are mistakes that should not occur in a restaurant of this caliber, and that those prices.

Il Buco is a wonderful neighborhood gem for a quiet dinner -- good food and good service in a pleasant atmosphere with your choice of convenient street parking or valet service. If you try Il Buco you'll undoubtedly return again.

My dining partner and I returned for the dish that made fans of us on our first visit, the Mushroom-Stuffed Gnocchi With Truffle Sauce, but it was not available! Oh No! What now?! Well, with the guidance of our excellent server, our "second choice" selections turned out to be absolutely brilliant. As we devoured our Linguine Amatriciana, and Spaghetti Involtini, followed by a shared Torta Mele dessert, all three of which were mind bogglingly delicious, we grateful for being forced to branch out.

The service here is seasoned and top notch -- very friendly and gracious too. So, no need to be shy about asking for suggestions, or adjustments to ingredients. I had a delicious dish of spinach & ricotta ravioli (with truffle cream sauce) that wasn't even on the menu. My dining partner's salmon was cooked to absolute perfection and served on a refreshing green salad. This is my second visit to Il Buco after being introduced to it last week. I'm completely sold!

I consider this my local, as I can walk here. It's a lovely Italian restaurant with a great ambience, the manager and staff know us as we're either ordering from here to pick up, or eating at the restaurant (once or twice a week sometimes!).

My son loves the steak, and their thin margarita pizza is really good. I've tried several of their pasta dishes, all decent, and their salmon was excellent too.

Il Buco is a solid neighborhood restaurant, both for everyday dining and special occasions.

This was my first time at Il Buco, and I definitely got the impression that they were not new to the rodeo. Right away, upon meeting the very seasoned, professional staff, I was filled with confidence that the meal was going to be great. I'm not an easy sell when it comes to gnocchi, but once in a while I've had my mind blown by it (at a couple of other places in LA and one in Chicago). Now, I can declare that Il Buco's gnocchi is officially and without a doubt the best I've ever had in my life! It's a mushroom-stuffed affair, with a truffle cream sauce. KILLER!!! Their clam linguine was excellent too. My dining partner and I were ecstatic over our lunch!
