Rigatoni was flavorful without being overpowering. Crispy artichoke was tasty and original
Loved it! Atmosphere and quality of food superb!
Food has declined. Pasta under cooked and chicken too salty. Used to be better
Amazing staff, food and experience!!
We ordered 10 different dishes between the four of us, and every one of them was excellently prepared, delicious, and in most cases different from other versions of the same dish elsewhere. Service was very gracious and efficient.
All good. Only dessert took a long time to come.
Great authentic Italian place. Good for pasta & baked goods
Great place for breakfast! Wonderful food and ambiance.
Delicious food, great wine, gorgeous decor -- can't beat it.
Everything is wonderful Except!!!!. You MUST have paper towels in the toilets or hand dryer’s that work. A restaurant of this caliber should have nice paper towels. Every time I have go to the restroom I need to use toilet paper to dry myself because the hand dryers are so badly situated that they don’t go on. Not a great experience. Toilets are VERY important.
Great food as usual and they were great about food allergies..making it no big deal! Always love that!
Too long to be seated, very very noisy, food took forever and was average. It’s expensive but the wine and sommelier was superb
Wonderful upstairs dining area... never been up there. Great light and service was excellent
One of the best in this massive city!! New wine list is awesome and matches the food!
Waitress forgot to bring us our coffee order at end of meal and just brought us the check. It would have been a more pleasant end to meal if she had just comped us coffee.
Seems like everyone there had a bad day. Not a smile on anyone’s face
Wonderful little spot!
Outstanding in every respect
the bar stools and tabletop counters are uncomfortable and not the best for sitting and enjoying dinner and drinks for a few hours.
Definitely Better value elsewhere in NYC.
Amazing food! Great and friendly service. Space is a little bit cramped and the chairs are unfortunately, a bit uncomfortable (sat at a high table bar-like section) for a long dinner, however service and menu were outstanding! Would still return and recommend, nonetheless.
Delicious salume, salmon crudo, unbelievable Porchetta, burrata special with marinated artichokes with Meyer lemon. Everything tasty and wonderful. Great wine selection - a Collio from Friuli. Fun festive ambiance. Helpful service. We are repeat guests at Il Buco Alimentari.
Amazing Branzino and Cacio e Pepe. Servers treat you like family
Fantastic place, top to bottom. Great staff, fantastic fresh food , beautiful casual surroundings, terrific drinks.
great food and service, but you have to not mind a racket...in fact, you better love a racket, and not be averse to a bit of shouting.
Special dinner with guest chef Naomi Pomeroy was tremendous. The menu was innovative and the food full of interesting flavors.
Just a delight. Great food. Great staff.
Amazing olive oil cake and avocado toast! Great choice for breakfast!
Giada our waitress is terrific!! Food excellent!! Just too noisy the table next to us and too close.
We already booked for another dinner in a few weeks.
Went here with my girlfirend for dinner on a Saturday night. Maitre d sat the two of us on uncomfortable bar stools on a ledge in a corner. We ordered our appetizers and main courses 10 mins before a few large parties walked into the restaurant. After the large parties were seated, our waitress ignored us and catered to the larger tables. Seems like the kitchen also ignored our orders for the larger tables as it took nearly 3 hrs to serve us from start to finish. Once we were actually served the food it was mediocre at best. Not worth the price of admission.
I picked Il Buco for a special occasion to impress someone who dines at top restaurants all the time and is a big-time foodie, so I was pretty nervous. Fortunately, I hit it out of the park with Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria. The food, atmosphere, service, and location were all spot on and my guest was impressed and raving to her friends. (That never happens for me so I am writing only my second open table review, basically because I feel like I owe them at Il Buco for taking such good care of us.
We sat overlooking the kitchen (which as a food network fan she loved) and picked our dishes by what we thought looked good as they were preparing the dishes. As good as it looked the food was unbelievable. We had 4 different appetizers and they were all fantastic. For entrees, she had the bucatini which was great while I had a perfectly prepared porchetta. We were pretty full at that point, however, the homemade hazelnut ice cream was so delicious we forced ourselves to have some.
The staff was knowledgeable and friendly and made very good suggestions.
We thought the neighborhood was really fun and energetic and as UESers we were glad to spend some time having a drink and window shop before we went home. Pretty close to the subway stop at Bleeker.
Delicious as always. Spring asparagus special with ricotta salata was so die for though a bit pricey ($22). Service left something to be desired as we were there around 3PM shift change which impacted service. Nonetheless, still great vibes and great food.
Too noisy and overpriced.
Food could have had more flavor
Super cute place, thought I booked at the original Il Buco. But sadly I found the food to be very bland and the $2 charge for bread and olive don't expect it from a place like this.
Came here for a leisurely dinner with two old friends to catch up. Visiting NYC for the week, and I hadn’t seen these friends in almost a year. The last thing we wanted was to be rushed. And rushed we were.
Before our third guest even sat down, the two of us were asked three times by our waiter if we wanted a drink. It was pretty evident we hadn’t even moved or touched the menu. The moment the third person sat down, our waiter was over like a hawk. Asking what we wanted to drink when we again still had not even touched the menu.
We wanted to spend our time catching up but instead we’re constantly bothered by staff and our waiter. I’ve never felt so rushed in a restaurant, ever. It was quite disappointing. We were asked about food before we had a chance to look, and were rushed into making a decision.
I quietly watched the other table beside us to see if they were bothered as much as we were. And although they had the same waiter, they were not. Wondering if this had to do with the outcome of the bill - although ours was still significantly high.
So, while we were eating and had PLENTY of food on the dishes, the staff came around trying to take our food away. This happened three times. All of us got extremely frustrated. They also took our plates away with food still on them. For an expensive restaurant, I was honestly quite shocked. The same thing happened with dessert. We took our time to look at the menu and before we even had a chance to look, we were asked twice what we wanted.
Super disappointed in this experience. Especially for a special occasion.
Such a perfect brunch option. Menu was small but for a reason, each item was excellent.
This place has great bread
We had a reservation for 2 and they sat us at the bar. The food was very sub par. I ordered the porchetta and it was a slab of fat. The crispy artichokes were so oily I thought I was going to go into cardiac arrest. I would not recommend going to this restaurant.
I love sitting at a bar but the seats here are not that comfortable. Be prepared that the bar seating is part of the overall seating so with a reservation you may be at the bar.
Like eating at home.
