CAN$51 and over
Italian
Buca Osteria & Bar is more than an Italian restaurant. In the spirit of the widely celebrated first location of Buca on King Street, the outpost in the heart of Yorkville is a place to be inspired by the innovation of the restaurant’s creative, artisanal fare, rooted in Italian tradition. Buca Osteria & Bar offers a broad selection of fresh and impeccably prepared seafood, in addition to their much loved pizzas, pastas, and cured fish. Executive Chef Jorge Fiestas creates an authentic Italian seafood cuisine. Buca has consistently been celebrated for using the freshest, carefully selected ingredients. Featuring sophisticated décor and an open-concept kitchen, the restaurant’s warmth and attention to detail stand out, both in environment and ingredients.

Why we love it

Executive chef: Jorge Fiestas

The Yorkville outpost of celebrated Italian restaurant Buca delivers its signature housemade pastas and Roman-style pizzas while adding a seafood focus. The restaurant’s polished dining room and open kitchen exude sophistication, while whole raw branzino—a must-order that’s nimbly carved tableside—adds theatrical flair to the experience.

    Service was a bit slow but food was delicious, as usual. The best pace in Yorkville for seafood/Italian.

    I went to Buca expecting an outstanding experience and was thoroughly disappointed. My partner and I dine all over Toronto - sometimes at little diners, sometimes at mid-priced neighborhood bistro and sometimes at high end spots for special occasions. When it's the latter, we expect unique and creatively presented, high-quality food. Buca did not deliver. The food was ordinary and the atmosphere was mediocre. We could have spent that amount of money on something MUCH better elsewhere in Toronto. Definitely will not go back.

    A culinary experience in a modern setting with impeccable and very friendly and accommodating service. The entrance is hidden with no visible sign and we had some trouble finding the restaurant. But the search was rewarded with a bit pricey but a well worth dinner. A definite repeat dinner location when in Yorkville.

    Our entrée wasn’t served until 1.5 hour after we sat. The waitress blamed us for this saying it was because we haven’t finished our appetizer. What if we didn’t like the appetizer so that we didn’t want to finish it? The fact is the appetizer is too greasy and we couldn’t finish the whole plate at once. We then waited for an hour for our entrée. When we finally got tired of waiting and asked why our main course had not been served, we were told it’s because of us. The least you can do is ask if we would like to have our main course prepared while watching us not working on the appetizer for one hour!

    We overall were satisfied except for the pasta dish. We had lobster pasta, one gluten-free and one regular. This dish is their signature dish so we were excited. Unfortunately, we were both disappointed. We were told by friends that the regular pasta and gluten-free you had a choice of hard pasta or homemade. My husband ordered hard pasta and it was a ball of mush. We asked the waiter if he had made a mistake and he told us all their pasta is homemade and soft. So, in my opinion, they don't know how to cook fresh pasta. We were also told that the sauce was all butter and no cream. This sauce was cream, it may had butter as well but definitely cream sauce. The carpaccio of the octopus was outstanding. The pizza was just ok, a little too wobbly of a crust in the middle. The dessert, which was wafer with lemon curd and cream, was not my favourite. The white wine was excellent

    Our server was incredible. Food was worth the price. Lobster pasta and burrata pizza were amazing. Must try their unique take on tiramisu.

    Excellent quality food and service. It's expensive but provides a very good value compared to the quality. Some of the freshest and best prepared seafood I have ever had.

    Extremely loud, very smokey (maybe faulty exhaust- left smelling like a restaurant). Our server did not check on us, we would mention something to the people serving our plates and was not relayed to our server so things were missed. Food was not worth the price.
