Like eating at home.
Pure, elemental, strong tastes and freshest ingredients. The sea bass was heaven
We went 2 nights to Il Buco. Everything we ordered was delicious and the service excellent. I especially liked the artichoke, the short ribs and the rabbit ragu. Great atmosphere!
Based on reviews and three stars from The NY Times, we chose Il Buco for a birthday dinner. We were massively disappointed on every front. The spaghetti was undercooked and clumpy (cacia e pepe is a favorite dish which we often order) and the lamb special was served in a pool of oil. The cut was extremely fatty and some of it was incredibly salty while other pieces were hardly spiced. The food was extremely disappointing. We would have complained but our waitress never checked in again after the food was served, never asked if we needed anything else, another drink, etc. Furthermore, the busboys kept coming to ask if we were finished and could take our plates while there was still food on them and my husband was still chewing: they asked three times within the space of five minutes. We went to a different restaurant the next night to celebrate my birthday all over again because Il Buco was so awful. There are so many Italian restaurants in NYC in this price range that far exceed this overly-hyped one in every way.
Met a freind here for a light Friday afternoon lunch. I was not disappointed! Had a nice table outside with a bottle of wine and the best bread and olive oil I have ever had! My lausagna was increible - not too much and not too little; just perfect. Wine list was small, but provided me with a good choice of red, wine and rose to pick from.
Based on a number of dinner visits, it's clear that he folks at Il Buco Alimentari really care about what they do. Menu is small but rock-solid, and they're very accommodating. You can have as big or small a meal as you like, and virtually everything is shareable or can be split. And an excellent wine list, including well-chosen wines by the glass. Service has always been terrific.
Totally ostentatious place. Ridiculously over priced and small portions. Kept us waiting despite reservation and then tried to seat us way in the back on bar stools at a counter by ourselves facing the wall and the grill when the whole place had open tables. Haughty and tiny portions too.
Great spot. Great vibe. Really good food. However, the barstools upstairs are wildly uncomfortable. Makes you not want to stay.
I LOVE the food and the restaurant but it can be VERY noisy!!! I go back regularly.
I was my first time there, and it did not disappoint. Everything was delicious and the service was right on
The ambiance was beautiful and the staff was wonderful. However, the food wasn’t anything special for the value and I actually think rather bland. I was there for brunch, so this could be different for dinner.
Il Buco A is one of our favorite nyc restaurants and we wanted to share it with visiting friends from London...
Loved the food! Especially the octopus and artichokes. Very solid food and exceptional service.
Fantastic brunch. Very traditional Italian food. Uova e salsiccia or pizza umbra strongly recommended or also short ribs hash really really good. Pastry phenomenal. Ambience incredibly cute. Real gem.
Great restaurant with cool vibe, amazing menu and fun people! Will definitely go back when back in NYC
Food and service outstanding once again!
An excellent meal. Creative appetizers of crispy artichokes delicately fried and razor clams that were plump and tasty. The entrees were superb-a perfect beet gnocchi with ricotta salad and a spaghetti with fresh peas and laredo. Both were in a light but very tasty sauce. Excellent service. Be prepared -it is a bit pricey.
Brilliant! That’s all It’s has to be said.
Thanks fot your kindness.
Delicious food, wonderful well thought out wine list, lively environment, everything that makes New York great!
Absolutely delicious food, wine and dessert. This is one of our go-to favs. A great place to meet friends or show out of towners what NYC has to offer in a unique and flavorful experience. Lamb ragu pasta, ocean perch on a plank, crispy artichokes, and burrata were just some of the stand-outs.
Precio alto para la porciòn de comida,poca variedad en el menù.
Brunch both egg dishes were disappointing
Was a terrific experience. Wait staff very pleasant, worked the table seamlessly and extremely helpful with food and wine selections. Meal/courses were spaced well. Food was served hot, presented beautifully, had interesting flavors and appealed to all in the group. Dishes were easy to share. Fun place to go with a group!
been dining there for years..excellent service, creative excellent dishes
I’ve been quite a few times and the food and service are always fabulous. The cocktails are especially yummy.
Excellent food, wine and service.
Delicious food cooked with high quality ingredients. There was attention to detail put into the entire experience. I highly recommend in every way.
Was heading to a late show at Bowery Electric, and found this gem right around the corner. So happy we found it! The bread (with fabulous olive oil sampler), the appetizers and entrees were all perfect. Try the Ocean Trout - perfection! Also, the staff was very accommodating, as our party kept fluctuating between 7 & 11 people.
Best Italian meal we’ve had for a very long time. Great staff
The beet salad was amazing! We loved sharing our date night here!!
A+ restaurant and service. Fantastic pastas, bread, olive oil, ambiance, black rice and shrimp, tuna tartare, and on and on. One of my fave NYC restaurants now. Loved it.
Our party of 4 had an amazing experience from the moment we entered until we left. The staff member serving us was attentive and knowledgeable. There was little wait for our meal courses. All the food was excellent. The crispy artichokes are great. The beet gnocci was unusual and delicious. The rainbow trout and branzino were both wonderful dishes. We even saved room for desserts, which were all extremely good.
We look forward to returning for another dinner
Superb food and wine menu. Knowledge staff makes great recommendations.
After passing two rooms of empty tables we were sat way in the back by the kitchen where the wait staff ate food that was 36 code word for wasn’t being served? We ordered two pastas, a salad and a starter, two glasses of wine each. Our salad came with ingredients that wasn’t described on the menu. My pasta was was awful I didn’t finish it, the waitress didn’t ask why, I assumed she knew.
Our waitress kept forgetting about us, she said she had a bad day.
The restaurant was loud and we were seated at a bar without being asked whether it suits. Good food and wine.
The restaurant was very noisy, a busy Saturday night. Might be better to go on a off night. The food was good but pasta arrived barely warm and the porcette was luke warm and tough. Not what we expected.
A poor overall experience. Food was mediocre, not close to the experience of the original restaurant a block away. FYI, they charge $3 for table bread which seems odd given the average dish costs $35. Too many better options in the neighborhood.
Staff went above and beyond. Food was excellent and the atmosphere was intimate and fun. Felt like a lot of care went into every detail.
