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 an Italian 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 Preston Madson features salumi/cheese boards, small sharing plates, fresh pasta, 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.

The food was perfect but the metal chairs scraping on the terracotta floor was insanely annoying. Why don't they put pads on the chairs, get different chairs Borneo both??

Disappointing visit been many times before went with out of town guests. The cacio e pepe dry very little cheese. Complained to the waiter he said that was the way it was supposed to be I was looking forward to one of my favorite dishes. They forgot to give us our leftovers that to was disappointing.

Service was not the best.
The person who was in charge of taking my order did
not do a very good job on following up after
I ordered a drink (took 25 minutes to get it).
The servers who are not the waiter/s did a great job,
but the person who took my order did not really care
and did not in my opinion do as good a job as everyone else.

Not at all what I expected from an expensive Italian restaurant. The food was barely ok, my risotto was undercooked and tasteless. Waiters were messy, although very nice. I felt I was paying too much for an average meal. Would not recommend it.

After arriving late due to subway delays, we arrived frazzled and got seated at the bar top on a busy Friday. The bar staff could not have been more friendly and immediately raised the experience up several notches, making sure to top off my sparkling rosé and keeping close tabs on us. Our dishes were served with excellent pacing and each outdid the last, with the Manila clams appetizer and swordfish special two standouts.

The food at Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria is always first-rate in the quality of ingredients and execution. Service is pleasant and prompt. The wine list is encyclopedic although more moderately priced wines would be welcome. Wine advice in my experience over several visits has been mixed, depending on the sommelier on hand. More attentive suggestions that do not trend to the more expensive options would also be welcome. Cocktails are excellent. I shall certainly keep going back anytime I'm in New York!

Salumi is outstanding; pasta dishes were perfect, especially the spaghetti bottarga...but the service is always a little reluctant. There always seem to be lots of staff...but none of them are our server...and the sommelier doesn't arrive until the first course has been served.

My family has had many wonderful dining experiences at Il Buco on Bond St. When we went to Il Buco Alimentary & Vineria for a Mother's Day brunch, we expected similar service in a new setting but were disappointed. First, although in writing when confirming the reservation, there was no children's menu available, for a Mother's Day brunch. Our server apologized and said it was a miscommunication with the back office, but as a result, our picky eater was now looking at a lovely, but beyond her comfort level fancy adult menu. Moving on, we found that all of the add-ons (coffee, juices, bread for the table, side of olive oil...) to the pre-fix quickly brought the bottom line up and took away the festive feeling - the outing quickly came to feel like a profit making venture versus a celebration. Our last note: the service was uneven with plates coming out at different times for the same course, tables who sat down after us being served ahead of us, water glasses being refilled twice in 5 minutes and then sitting empty for 20 minutes... We had probably (no lie) 7 different staff come to our table during the meal so it became confusing to know who was responsible for which aspect of the experience. The whole outing ultimately felt disappointing and nothing like our meals at the original Il Buco. We won't go back to this location.

Always a great dinner at Il Buco - a must visit place when visiting the city. The restaurant was very accommodating when I called the day of and asked to double the size of my party. Highly recommend the caccio e pepe and some gelato for dessert!
