Italian
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.

Pastas are decent and have a good bite. Octopus appetizer was good. Chocolate torte was a delicious dessert (the fruit currant offset the rich chocolate very nicely). The pistachio shortcake was good, but it was more of a general fruit shortcake rather than a pistachio shortcake.

Very good food, definitely a place to go for special occasions and nice dates. Ambiance is very lively and loud. Food portions could’ve been a bigger for the price tag, but the food quality is very good. If you want an Italian spot with a big bowl of pasta, this is not the place to go.

singular dishes so plan well with your company so you can really focus in on flavors of each. Timing of food out of the kitchen excellent. Cocktails Very good as well. If you like fish you must order the branzino...

The food at Il Buco is always very good, often great. But our experience was marred by the fact that we had pretty unpleasant, and I would say, somewhat arrogant wait staff.

There's one reason I return to Il Buco Allimentari again and again: Everything. The service is warm but not palls-y friendly. The nicely dim, candlelit room. And the food--of course, the food. The artichokes are clean fried and crisp nuggets. The black rice and shrimp with an egg stirred in is crunchy and smooth, comforting and surprising. Even the green salad is tucked with surprises.

Everything was tasty. We started with Salumi for 2 and grilled octopus, then split terrific garganelli pasta with fresh tomatoes and chicken entree with a side of greens. Very solid, authentic Italian cuisine. There is an extra charge for bread, which was delicious and is made on site, and strangely, not included with the salumi platter. Service was friendly and very attentive.

Il Buco is always good, but this time it was amazing.
The service was excellent (the waitress and the sommelier, the bus staff) the and the food was outstanding.
Had the house made bread and cured meats, always a good house.
Then had the bison tartare, hands down probably best tartare I’ve had, I always get it there.
Had the hanger steak special, outstanding.
The rabbit pasta was also great!

More boisterous than its sister restaurant around the corner, IBAV delivers. The octopus appetizer was a standout as was the porchetta, which achieved the elusive balance of crispy fatty exterior yet moist and flavorful meat. Will be back soon.

I thought I had made reservations for the original Il Buco. At first I was disappointed to find out that I had reserved at Alimentari. However, by evening's end, I was quite delighted, as was my dinner companion. The food is excellent. The room is quite welcoming, with the possible exception of the three tables up front, which seem to be a bit less than prime. The wine list has been carefully chosen, and offers some unusual options, perfect for the adventuresome guest. The waiter was quite knowledgeable, and the service overall was excellent. There was one minor glitch, when our main course was not fired in time, but the chef or expeditor caught it and sent out an app to tide us over. Only complaint was that the tomato in that app was not quite up to par, given that it's August. Overall, a wonderful restaurant, and one that I would happily visit again.

This place never fails to impress! Either with my family or business associates, this is my go to place in the city! If you have never been here...a tip...start with the olive oil tasting followed up with a meat and cheese assortment. Then order a dish of any of the pastas, my favorite is the caciao e pepe, and a short rib for the table to share! That will be a perfect meal! And the wine list is pretty spectacular with hundreds of exceptional Italian reds to choose from. I could go on but you get the point.

I love this restaurant - it’s noisy which is ok on a fun evening. We sat upstairs where the tables are very wide so we couldn’t talk to our friends oposite as it was too loud.
The waitress couldn’t hear our friends on the oposite side of the table and had to go back and forth to take our order.
Otherwise it was great👍
