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.

Food was great. Our only complaint was that we had a reservation and they tried to sit us at the bar. Also acted as if we were crazy for not wanting to sit at the bar for a $100+ per head dinner that we made a reservation for. Other than that it was awesome. Great wine selection as well.

The food service and ambience were all of the highest quality. We had been wanting to go for a while and everything was even better than expected. We ended up in easy, brief conversations with neighboring tables and had a delicious and fun evening.

This is my FAVORITE restaurant in New York.
The food is excellent and inventive, the servers are lovely,
and the atmosphere is cozy and beautifully lit with low lighting.

I really enjoyed the food at this restaurant. It is a smaller space so we chose to eat at the bar. The pasta was cooked perfect and had a nice flavor. If you enjoy Italian you will like this place.

Our meal was fabulous!! The service was magnificent!
Loved it all! Appetizers were wild shrimp and Broccolini with charred leeks- yum! We both had the Hake for entrees- best ever- served with roasted carrots . And the dessert- I felt like it was one of the best I ever had! Highly recommend!

Noisy, busy, impersonal place. Food is ok but nothing to write home about, compared to other great Italian restaurants in NYC. Zero ambience, probably better suited for large, loud groups. Food arrived semi-cold at the table. Not acceptable when an establishment trades on a certain reputation. Not worth it.

Brought my parents for their first meal in New York, wanted to make it special. I've been here 4 times now, each other time was incredible.

Left standing at the Host stand for over half an hour because our table was still in use. Normally you have people leave 15 minutes prior to a reservation in restaurants, not leaving the people who are on time waiting. We got Prosecco, but no knowledge of when we would be seated, just blank stares and confusion, the Prosecco didn't really make up for standing in limbo that long.

The worst part was we were sat beside a table of the loudest group of people I've ever experienced in a restaurant who would have suited a pizza place in St.Marks better.
Spoke to staff 3 times about asking them to quiet down to no avail. The table beside us asked too.

Service on the table was excellent and the food was great. However the ambiance and professionalism for a restaurant of this quality really needs to be performed better by the management and FOH

We came for restaurant week so I can't speak for the full menu, but what we tasted (burrata, rico nero, lamb ragu, pork milanese, pistachio cake) was all pretty bland. Service was mediocre at best, with about 20 minutes of downtime between each course. It's a charming and vibrant atmosphere if you like a bustling kind of feel, but there is much better to be found at this price point.

I had higher expectations for my last visit based on prior experiences. Overall, I'm still very much a big fan of the restaurant. I find the wine list impressive, and the sommelier extremely knowledgeable. In fact, for any wine lover, seeking to discover & learn more about Italian wines, it's a must visit spot. The food experience however, perhaps because its restaurant week, was slightly different. Yes, it's a limited tasting menu, yet still I was hoping for more of a flavor. And also, perhaps again, the restaurant week, kept the place packed, was much slower. We waited for over half hour in between courses. I'm still willing to come back, perhaps on a quieter night.
