Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria
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.

Pastas are decent and have a good bite. Octopus appetizer was good. Chocolate torte was a delicious dessert (the fruit currant offset the rich chocolate very nicely). The pistachio shortcake was good, but it was more of a general fruit shortcake rather than a pistachio shortcake.
singular dishes so plan well with your company so you can really focus in on flavors of each. Timing of food out of the kitchen excellent. Cocktails Very good as well. If you like fish you must order the branzino...
The food at Il Buco is always very good, often great. But our experience was marred by the fact that we had pretty unpleasant, and I would say, somewhat arrogant wait staff.
Always impeccable service and delicious food. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. This is an exceptional, local, casual chic spot for a great meal. I go frequently.
There's one reason I return to Il Buco Allimentari again and again: Everything. The service is warm but not palls-y friendly. The nicely dim, candlelit room. And the food--of course, the food. The artichokes are clean fried and crisp nuggets. The black rice and shrimp with an egg stirred in is crunchy and smooth, comforting and surprising. Even the green salad is tucked with surprises.
A menu unlike any other - truly creative and delicious. If you want spaghetti and meatballs or Penne alla Vodka, this place is not for you.
Great staff, from the maître'd to the servers and the sommelier. The food is delicious - Garrison has found a wonderful place to express himself as Chef. We enjoy sitting at the bar or at a table - a comfortable, delicious neighborhood gem.
I won’t recommend it all. Very little space between tables... nearly none. Service (kitchen) was super slow and food was not great at all given the price I paid!
Have been going for years. One of my favorite restaurants!
great food , great staff
the wine list needs updating.
A go-to spot for excellent pastas, and a warm, welcoming staff
Always excellent food and service
Savory, delicious food, attentive service and pleasant environment. Overall, a delight.
Everything was tasty. We started with Salumi for 2 and grilled octopus, then split terrific garganelli pasta with fresh tomatoes and chicken entree with a side of greens. Very solid, authentic Italian cuisine. There is an extra charge for bread, which was delicious and is made on site, and strangely, not included with the salumi platter. Service was friendly and very attentive.
Thoughtful menu of largely locally sourced ingredients that are often truly memorable in combination.
Very disappointing Cascio e Pepe pasta. Tomatoes were good. Good wine recommendation fro sommelier. But the food was not like the delicious feed I’ve had many times at I’ll Buco. I won’t return.
Casual Italian dining at its best - excellent food, service and ambiance. We will be back
Excellent wine selection, with great attention and selection guidance from the wonderful bartender. Ate at the bar...loved all that we ate from charcuterie to pastas.
Il Buco is always good, but this time it was amazing.
The service was excellent (the waitress and the sommelier, the bus staff) the and the food was outstanding.
Had the house made bread and cured meats, always a good house.
Then had the bison tartare, hands down probably best tartare I’ve had, I always get it there.
Had the hanger steak special, outstanding.
The rabbit pasta was also great!
A great meal and outstanding bar. Small bistro atmosphere with outside dining option.
Michael the GM and his team were amazing. Food and service was extraordinary.
Delicious as always. But the seating at the high counter in back is MUCH too cramped. And it took far too long for the entrees to come although the appetizers arrived quickly
More boisterous than its sister restaurant around the corner, IBAV delivers. The octopus appetizer was a standout as was the porchetta, which achieved the elusive balance of crispy fatty exterior yet moist and flavorful meat. Will be back soon.
We arrived for our dinner reservation at 6:30. Most tables were still unoccupied and yet we got stuck upstairs at a makeshift counter in a corner. Terrible.
I thought I had made reservations for the original Il Buco. At first I was disappointed to find out that I had reserved at Alimentari. However, by evening's end, I was quite delighted, as was my dinner companion. The food is excellent. The room is quite welcoming, with the possible exception of the three tables up front, which seem to be a bit less than prime. The wine list has been carefully chosen, and offers some unusual options, perfect for the adventuresome guest. The waiter was quite knowledgeable, and the service overall was excellent. There was one minor glitch, when our main course was not fired in time, but the chef or expeditor caught it and sent out an app to tide us over. Only complaint was that the tomato in that app was not quite up to par, given that it's August. Overall, a wonderful restaurant, and one that I would happily visit again.
From start to finish, a delight. Staff was attentive and friendly. Food and wine were exceptional. I can't wait to get back to NYC to visit Il Buco again!
This is my hands-down favorite place to bring out of towners! Delicious and delightful every time.
The antipasti are really amazing, next time I will rather go for more of those and maybe just those!
One dish was too salty even after being replaced...
This place never fails to impress! Either with my family or business associates, this is my go to place in the city! If you have never been here...a tip...start with the olive oil tasting followed up with a meat and cheese assortment. Then order a dish of any of the pastas, my favorite is the caciao e pepe, and a short rib for the table to share! That will be a perfect meal! And the wine list is pretty spectacular with hundreds of exceptional Italian reds to choose from. I could go on but you get the point.
flawless !!flawless flawless flawless flawless
Food is poor and pricy, service is very slow. Won't recommend it
Great service. Food was fresh but extremely uneventful in flavor. Alcohol ridiculously overpriced
I love this restaurant - it’s noisy which is ok on a fun evening. We sat upstairs where the tables are very wide so we couldn’t talk to our friends oposite as it was too loud.
The waitress couldn’t hear our friends on the oposite side of the table and had to go back and forth to take our order.
Otherwise it was great👍
Excellent food in an inviting warm atmosphere. The pork with cherries was a standout as was the octopus.
This restaurant is creative - fun vibe and delicious food. I love this restaurant - Food is fab - service top notch.
If the food is fantastic, does that give the restaurant permission to let almost everything else be bad? The strengths of this place are superb ingredients and preparation: every dish approaches 11 on a scale from 1 to 10. This is undermined by one big problem: too many seats. Communal tables and bar seating do not have to resemble mealtime in economy class, with everyone cramping up to avoid banging their neighbor's elbows. The serving staff also need to notice when diners have poached adjacent place settings to deposit used dishes -- because when someone (me and my companion) arrives to occupy those places, it's no fun to find our placemats grease-stained by someone else's food. And we don't like having to yell to be heard, or to find we can hear the people next to us more easily than we can hear each other. Noise doesn't add to conviviality -- the noise problem has many solutions but none seemed to be in use here. Adding a bit more space would also make it easier for diners to adjust their barstools; wedged in so tight, we had to grab the edge of the counter and wiggle the stools forward and back like caterpillars. It was all so annoying, and so clearly aimed at maximizing the nightly revenue, it undercut our enjoyment of the food. Yes, restaurants are a low-margin business, but by stuffing the room with too many seats this place is not thinking about how many repeat customers it's losing. I'm one of them.
Overall a disappointment perhaps because I had such a wonderful meal at Il Buco. Portions were small and uninspired
I tryed to find out what your corkage fee was before buying a bottle of burgundy I couldn’t get through so I took a chance and brought a bottle
After being seated I asked and was told corkage fee was between $35 and $50 a bottle and was charged $50
So a bad experience and a waste of time
