We felt it was a bit pricey for the wine, food was very good but also pricy
Amazing food and amazing service
All was very good, the service was excellent as always. It’s just very expensive, and very noisy in the back part of the restaurant.
Impressive service, and equally impressive food. High quality, fresh ingredients were used in our dishes and this was very evident from tasting. I will definitely be returning.
We made a reservation for 10pm, which was confirmed by their staff. The end of our meal felt quite rushed as the staff wanted to get home for the night. The food was good, but the service was less than welcoming, especially as the night went on. I’m sorry you had to stay late for us, but you knew what you were getting when you confirmed my reservation for 10pm. When I drop $400 on a nice meal and am expected to tip based on a percentage, I expect more from the service than this.
Excellent all round.
Not many options for starters, very creative dishes, some of them really amazes you but some of them felt like are a little try hard (to look creative). Cocktails are really successful, wasn’t really accurate to description though (my lemon peel wasn’t burnt as described, it was just a twist but I was excited about it). Great service, welcoming desk is 4 stars, but the rest of the staff was really nice and honest. Desserts were a little under level compare to the rest of the menu.
Our server gave great service. Other than that, we thought the food was overrated. Definitely not worth the cost.
Absolutely outstanding! The service was beyond compare and the food was so unique – try the cured fish "charcuterie" board with squid ink dumplings!
Authentic and delicious. Attentive service. Prefer Yorkdale location to others for space.
We had a lovely lunch. Shared a wonderful pizza. Not cheap but the food was good.
Great food and service. Always an enjoyable experience. Nodini is a must order.
wonderful food and service. Prefer if it was a nicer décor to be frank.
Fabulous food and service
Food and service was spectacular! Thank you!!!
the staff were helpful, friendly and accommodating. The food was beautifully presented and consistently delicious. All in all, it was great time and we will return.
Bread knots where too hard
Awesome. One of the best in the city.
I came in on Sunday morning with a friend and have been waiting to dine here for quite some time. I made a note on OpenTable stating that I have a severe nut allergy. Upon arrival, my allergy was acknowledged by our server which was very assuring. However, when I ordered the stracciatella + the bomboloni to share with my guest - our server mentioned that the "truffle paste" would have to be subbed out because it may contain nuts.
When our food arrived, a third plate that we did not order came out as well. We weren't sure if this was a mistake or simply a gesture - so we happily ate our meal and shared every dish as mentioned earlier. It wasn't until three hours later in the middle of my shift when I started to experience severe anaphylaxis and had to make arrangements to potentially go to the emergency. I called the restaurant and inquired about the dishes we had - turns out the bomboloni indeed had nuts.
It is now very clear to me that the third dish mentioned above was sent as an alternative to the bomboloni - never once was I told the bomboloni had nuts. There was - obviously - some form of miscommunication on one (or both) of our ends. You would think that our server would have mentioned something as she watched me eat the bomboloni knowing I had a severe allergy. I tried to notify the restaurant through their website. The food was outstanding (even the bomboloni....) , although the service we received was not nearly up to par for such a highly regarded restaurant.
Beautiful place with a focused menu and an extensive wine list!
Amazing restaurant. One of the best Italian restaurants in this city of Toronto.
The food portion size was ridiculously small... A main meal was 3/4 the of than my iPhone in total. Expensive for this pretentious restaurant
Food and service was great. Niccolo was very knowledgeable about the food and wine.
Love their Burrata Pizza.
They are consistent with their quality here and I find the quality at this location better than the one on King St.
Best Roman PIZZA in Toronto, bar none.
The service is so very attentive.
Ridiculously expensive. The glasses of wine by the glass averaged $19 for 5 oz. Pastas were over $40. Seriously? We dine out a lot, and Buca's prices are incredibly out of line.
Branzino was amazing, and our server was awesome
Excellent selection of Italian wine, excellent service and the food was great
Excellent service and exquisite food. Delicate flavors peppered with more robust flavors to create balanced and interesting dishes -- and a lovely menu.
Table was available at reserved time
Wait staff was amazing
They were aware of one guest with allergies and had already accommodated for it
It was one of the best meals we have had ... and we eat out often and in some pretty amazing restaurants.
We were able to enjoy the evening with our family and were very appreciative all that the kitchen and other staff did to make it a memorable experience.
Buca Yorkville is now on our list of restaurants we will return to often.
VERY expensive and not worth it. Your alcohol prices are beyond belief. The salad was so lame I couldn’t believe it...a couple of red coloured sticks with minimal flavour. The cod was very good but very small and no vegetables to speak of. The bread balls were very tasty.
Great restaurant and worth the price! Excellent service and impeccable food.
While usually the food at Buca is 5/5 today was definitely a 3/5 if that. Our server seemed judgey that we didn’t order more but nothing on the menu seemed to stand out for me this time outside of the burrata pizza. Garlic knots and the tiramisu... horrible. DO NOT EAT!
Also I’m pretty sure our server heard me complain about the service as he was more pleasant the second half of the service. Suggesting drinks we’d prefer but again he was judgey over the fact we didn’t drink wine vs cocktails. I mean I get it, holiday season and it’s busy also Buca isn’t really about the service anyway.
The food sucked so if I just had to base it on our food experience 2/5 and the burrata pizza wasn’t as good as usual. Quite disappointed :/
A wonderful evening spent at Buca Yorkville on Dec 26.... terrific ambience...fantastic service and outstanding food....we loved it.
Lunch was great. I thought this was the seafood Buca so was surprised when little seafood was on the current menu. Had the seafood appetizer and was amazing.
A good time!
Simply awesome. A great lunch to impress high value clients or friends!!
