Buca Osteria & Enoteca brings Italy to Toronto’s dining hotbed on King Street West. Buca has been internationally celebrated for its locally sourced, constantly changing menu. Guests are drawn to return time and again for the warm hospitality and artisanal fare, including famed house-cured meats, pizza, and pasta, inspired by the classic traditions of Italy with a contemporary culinary touch. An open curing room is on view, and beyond the Enoteca, a smaller wine bar, offers the perfect space for intimate gatherings. Tucked at the end of a private brick walkway, guests can choose to dine under the soaring ceilings of the restaurant’s industrial chic dining room. Consistently rated one of Canada’s best restaurants by critics since its opening, Buca is a modern classic built on the perfect balance of old world and new.

    Food was high quality, well-prepared, and well-presented. Wait staff were attentive without being intrusive. A good evening! However, the evening almost didn't happen because the Open Table system inexplicably sent an email cancelling my reservation, yet the reservation was still active at the restaurant's end. Better fix that bug, Open Table!

    Everything about the experience was OUTSTANDING, except for the menus. The font was so small and faint as to be almost unreadable. Noticed several customers going for their lighting / magnifiying apps on their phones and smart watches. A small thing (see what I did there?) bit easily fixed.

    Date night with my boyfriend - we are from Montreal. The service was impeccable from the moment we arrived until we left. The food and wine was very good. The only downside from our overall experience is the temperature in the resto. It was so hot the whole time and little ambiance.

    The service was absolutely fantastic. I booked the evening as a anniversary with my girlfriend and we were greeted at the door with a friendly "happy anniversary" as soon as I gave the gentleman my booking info. We were given complimentary prosecco and again wished happy anniversary. The desert tiramisu was exceptional and hands down the best tiramisu I've had in Toronto. The manager greeted us after our meal and we had a pleasant conversation during which he also wished us happy anniversary and gave us a small box of pasta and raw ingredients that we could use to make lunch the next day. Overall the service was outstanding. I will be coming back and recommending this restaurant to others.

    First of all, wow. Just wow. Although the location is a little hard to find, this restaurant was amazing from start to finish. The host and manager greeted me and offered to take my coat and were extremely friendly. The staff is all very helpful and professional. The ambiance is very nice! My dinner portion was a little smaller than I would have liked, but Jesus Christ that was one of the best dishes I've ever had. Order the Brigoli!!! Dessert: fantastic. I had the Tiramisu Buca and it was like four desserts in one. I would 100% come back to Toronto just to visit Buca again. Thank you!!!!

    It was a great birthday celebration for our son with family and friends attending (7). Our server was attentive, confident in his food recommendations and the pace of service was perfect. I was very pleased that Buca was able to increase the reservation from 4 people to 7 same day. The request was handled professionally and seamlessly. We will be back! LPS

    Outstanding! We each had cocktails; appetizers (we asked to be surprised by a cheese and charcuterie tray and it was possibly the best one we had ever had); mains and desserts. There were 4 of us and for everything we had, we each “raved” about our choices! Our server Ruben, was spot on with all his recommendations and helped to make it a perfect night. His level of service (and those supporting him with our table) was also impeccable. The manager brought over a home made pasta “kit” for the birthday person to prepare and enjoy the next night at home. A very nice touch for a table of foodies! The whole Buca team is to be commended for a night that we all gave 10/10!

    I wasn't prepared for how incredibly delicious this meal at Buca wasn't going to be. The tuna crudo was light and fresh and the house bread with eggplant spread was nothing short of a revelation (I would have liked to take home a jar of it!) The duck yolk pasta with duck offal ragout was creamy, savoury and perfectly al dente. Flavours I won't soon forget! I would be remiss to not mention the outstanding Tiramisu, complete with a perfect brulee'd layer before the whip on top adding texture and a delicious burnt, sweet note. Highly recommend - will be back for sure!

    Front door staff were friendly and courteous. When we were seated we were approached by multiple servers. No one introduced themselves and no one identified who would be our primary server. It then became obvious who our primary server was. Unfortunately she was more concerned with checking in with her friends at another table. We were clearly an afterthought. We were there celebrating a friend’s Milestone birthday which I had indicated on the reso. There was no effort to even acknowledge the birthday. I had previously been to Buca for a birthday which is why I had chosen to return. Unfortunately the service this time around was so disappointing and I’m not sure I’ll return or can suggest this restaurant is worth it. I got better service at the MOCA (at the cafe) and Terroni this past weekend.
