About Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria

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.

We set at the high table at the bar. Started with paccheri with rabbit ragu and the daily pasta special tagliatelle with lobster. Both dishes were perfectly executed, pasta cooked al dente and flavors were just yummy. For the main we shared the roasted short ribs for 2 with a side of polenta. The meat was tender, I would have like more veggies with it. We couldn't finish the dish, it is quite large. Sommelier helped us pick a nice bottle of wine (Freccia degli Scacchi).

We are from Buenos Aires (Argentina) and spent the last dinner of 2017 at Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria, a the beginning of 2018. Great time! Excellent attention and incredible food. Hope we could return in another visit to NY

I reserved for New Years Eve as the website advertised menu fixe with live DJ & dancing. Sadly there was no DJ nor dancing. The food was inconsistent. The appetizers were good as well as the caviar and dessert, but both the pasta and the main course were disappointing. I’m sure that New Years Eve is not necessarily the day to judge a restaurant but there were clearly other patrons disappointed with the missing dance floor and subsequent party.

This was our second visit. The food was excellent, especially the black rice risotto and the porchetta. The only reason I am not giving a “5” is that the wine list is much too expensive, with no red wines under $44.

Not my first time there, and I continue to love it. Like being in rural Tuscany. Casual, except that they have a sommelier, and they take such care and pride in the foods, from its source to presentation. Everything is outstanding, especially what they do in house (the salumi and breads). Just love it. Wine mark-ups could be lower, but I'm splitting hairs now.

We had the Xmas eve fish feast (fixed-price menu). All courses were well-prepared and presented--first dish risotto with shrimp and main dish sea bass were especially good. Excellent desert combination as well of lemon tart and chocolate budino. Very attentive service.

We went for the 7 Fishes dinner and although the first courses was excellent, I wish I could say the same for the remainder. Didn't like either the 2nd or 3rd course and even the desert was just ok. Definitely wouldn't go back for this meal next year.

We chose to have dinner here for an old friend's meet up in NYC. We couldn't have been happier. Absolutely stellar food from appetizers to dessert. We had been to the original Il Buco previously and this one was just as good if not better. Highly recommend. Thanks for a great evening!

Very trendy place--bustling, ever expanding. Very noisy inside. You have to sit right next to someone to be able to talk to them without shouting. There appear to be almost no tables for 2-if you are 2 you are seated at a bar like counter it seems. Which is interesting but not optimal. The food is very good, fresh, interesting. Some portions are small-the pastas and certain appetizers. You pay for bread. So, certainly not the best value but very trendy and tasty.

Visited for pre movie dinner and got drinks, apps, entrees and dessert. The house negroni was great; we really enjoyed the crispy artichoke hearts (a special that night) and the ragu was also delicious. Finished with panna cotta which left us satisfied, but not in a food coma. Would definitely come back!

A friend and I had a really special dinner at the counter by the kitchen and the staff were really sweet, sending us tastings of special dishes. This restaurant has achieved iconic status in NYC, the food is consistently exceptional and the staff personal and attentive. It’s always busy, which makes the high level of cuisine and service so remarkable. Il Buco manages to be both comfortable and elevated, and make it look easy - fantastic wine list as well. And though I’ve been going here for years, it’s still so special.
Definitely recommend!
