Italian
Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria is a market, salumeria, bakery and restaurant dedicated to quality products.

This "simple convivial spot that tastes just like Italy" feels like a "village inside-a-restaurant". While the Alimentari sells house made salumi, freshly baked bread and an ample assortment of imported and domestic items, the open kitchen looks out onto a rustic dining room with communal tables and long marble wine bar. A seasonal menu by Executive Chef Garrison Price features salumi/cheese boards, small sharing plates, fresh pastas and roasted meats and fish from a rotisserie and wood burning oven. The upstairs private dining loft, adjacent to the roof garden and overlooking the main restaurant and market, is available for parties up to 50 people for cocktails and/or a seated dinner. Whole fish under sea salt and roasted short ribs or porchetta are house staples often served family style as are house made gelato tastings.

Wonderful meal from appetizers(charred artichokes, yellow tail carpaccio), main courses (black squid ink pasta with crab amazingly flavorful and light-well worth the carbs, and trout- thick cut, great fresh taste with charred leeks were so complimentary), to the dessert- affogato. Oh- how could I have forgotten the bread basket with olive oil and rock salt!

Everything was above average. Although one of Pasta dishes we ordered was not properly cooked, the server took the initiative to immediately correct the situation. It was uncomfortable to have to wait, but the dish came back perfectly cooked on the second try.

I had to send my meal back twice...once as it was undercooked and cold and the second as it was still undercooked (crunchy pasta). I did not bother having them make a 3rd attempt. Also, the service was incredibly slow and it was not particularly busy...like 40 minutes to get a beer that was opened at the table slow.

Upon 6:00 arrival, seating, receipt of menu, everyone manager, hostess and waitperson) acknowledged our need to make a 7:30 curtain at The Public. They brought it up, not me. We finished our appetizers by 6:30. Then we sat and sat. A few apologies during the wait. Entrees showed up at 6:55, and one pasta dish was undercooked — not al dente, but undercooked. We half ate what was presented, with one of us eating around the undercooked pasta. Waitstaff (charming btw) was very apologetic. But they (expediter?) just blew it, which was too bad, because everything else was great. Then we had to run.

The pasta is incredible, exactly what it should taste like, and the lamb regu was especially delicious. My family was also particularly impressed by the Montepulciano wine, which exists by the glass. We ordered meats, and I liked the bresaola but was disappointed by the mortadella. The vibe is kind of dark and noisy, but that's the neighborhood.

Really delicious starter ie homemade charcuterie , porchetta as main course was quite tasty but was too big a potion mainly consisting of two large slices of meat and hardly anything else 😣.
We were seated at “bar” section on 1st floor which is overlooking the a void /the ceiling of ground floor area, not very attractive. The place I extremely busy and very noisy . Staff was very friendly and helpful. All in al good but not more ...

It's a solid restaurant. I'm no official expert on Italian cuisine but Il Buco leans to the North. Attentive service. Salumi platters. Cheese platters. Perfect pastas. Inventive desserts. I'm looking forward to a return visit. Go.

Food was generally very good. The artichokes and the ribs were outstanding. I would have rated more highly but we were told in a condescending way when we checked in that we had to leave within 1 hr 45 minutes. Even if we had no intention of being there longer than that it hardly makes for a relaxed meal with friends.

All around excellence, from the food to the service. The wine steward guided us to a very good bottle. There were enough options for my vegetarian friend. My pasta with lamb ragu was outstanding, as was Le Boyfriend’s spaghetti Nero with crab. Looking forward to my next meal there.

Food was great, service very prompt, a little on the noisy side... but, I’ve not been upstairs before, which is perfectly good, especially if you are to have a large group. I would probably ask for the ground floor seating if it’s an option.

We were made to feel welcome and comfortable the instant we entered the restaurant-1 hour ahead of our reservation I should add. The service was wholistic in that there wasn’t a time when weren’t watched over. I would recommend going before the main dinner hour and order from the limited menu. Wine prices are fairly high but the quality and selections were special. Try the specialty cured meats for a unique experience. Save room for desert!
