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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
