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.

Great service. Delicious food. Cacio Pepe and other pasta dish with mushrooms was outstanding. Fun atmosphere: sat at a high communal table next to open kitchen.

My husband and I planned a trip to NYC before my hip
replacement surgery. One of my chefs recommended this restaurant-it’s a gem. Food was outstanding and great service at the back bar. Very loud!

An evening at Il Buco Alimentari is always perfect - from the greeting at the door to the service (outstanding this visit) and of-course the meal. Everyone friendly and helpful.

We set at the high table at the bar. Started with paccheri with rabbit ragu and the daily pasta special tagliatelle with lobster. Both dishes were perfectly executed, pasta cooked al dente and flavors were just yummy. For the main we shared the roasted short ribs for 2 with a side of polenta. The meat was tender, I would have like more veggies with it. We couldn't finish the dish, it is quite large. Sommelier helped us pick a nice bottle of wine (Freccia degli Scacchi).

Always fantastic but they charge you for it. At least here you have to admit it’s worth it.

We are from Buenos Aires (Argentina) and spent the last dinner of 2017 at Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria, a the beginning of 2018. Great time! Excellent attention and incredible food. Hope we could return in another visit to NY
