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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
