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.

Our server was outstanding and the food was equally wonderful. Highly recommended.

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.

Superb wine list paired with true comfort foods; the bread alone is worth a visit. Highly recommend

Service and food were excellent. The ambiance was charming. We were seated by the charcuterie counter and everything looked amazing. The appetizers and dinners were excellent. Most surprising was the pistachio cake with candied olives. So good!

Always an excellent choice in New York. Great homemade pastas, bread, and salumi. Great flavor profiles.

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.

Wanted it to be spectacular, but was slightly underwhelmed. I think I may have had too high of expectations.

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!

We found a hair inside of desert and waiter didn’t say sorry and didn’t get me discount or something

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.

The food was good, but we had to wait 25 minutes for a table (even with our reservation). Wouldn't recommend if you are pressed on time

Great space - easy to sit and talk for hours - no rush. Interesting well curated wine list and by the glass. Easy to order lots of food to share. Olive oil tasting is fun. Will go back.
