My sister took me here for my retirement lunch, food was excellent and oh so delicious. We sat outside on the patio overlooking the waterfront. So enjoyable and the wine was fabulous.
Our waitress was fantastic and didn’t rush us which is very important to me.
I took my hubby there for Father’s Day and had an amazing experience .. food was perfect and our server was friendly and cheerful !!
We will definitely be going more often :)
Delicious food and good portions. Attentive, friendly and polite wait staff. Reasonable prices. Relaxed atmosphere and scenic year round.
First time here. Sat outside on patio. View was great of the bay. Service was very good. Kitchen a bit slow. Food was excellent. Was pricy for three people. Over $200 with tip.Needs to be a special occasion to spend this much. Would go back but not as so on a regular basis.
The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was very good.
A very nice restaurant to celebrate a special occasion or just meet up with friends!
I took my daughter ( who is 8) for a Daddy Daughter date. The staff was amazing, my daughter loved it. I am very happy with taking her to IL Buco. Thanks to Wait staff and Chef for a great night.
All of the above. Not sure about accessibility as we came in the back way. I'd like to take my mother to lunch, but she couldn't climb that many stairs.
Overall, the experience was lovely. Great server, lots of fun. Great variety of dishes. We'll be back!
Has a nice atmosphere and made for a very good dining experience.
We had a great time and a great meal. It’s my favourite restaurant in Barrie
Everything was great ! Server and food excellent. However the reservation app was frustrating as I wanted to change the reservation from 2 to 3. Tried but ended up staying at 2 . I must have done something wrong
We liked it but found it very noisy inside - so much so it was difficult to have conversation with the people across the table and with the food taking quite a while to arrive, you needed to be able to talk among yourselves. The waiter was very pleasant and accommodating, but food was slow (not his fault I realize). Mixed reviews among our group about the food. My meal was excellent as were a couple others, but the rest of the group found theirs to be mediocre given the price. There were split opinions as to whether they'd go back again.
It was delicious and fresh. The service was outstanding and the restaurant was beautifully decorated.
I took my son to dinner at your restaurant. He was visiting me from Vancouver. We sat on the patio for our meal. It is a nice view with the lake right there. The service was excellent and the food was delicious.
Had the best dinner Sunday night. Our waiter was amazing the food was absolutely delicious.
Good food , good service, great view of the bay, the house wine is very good
Great place.. Good service and great food / wine at reasonable cost!
My wife and I went for out anniversary and was sested promptly (made reservations). The waiter was very attentive and friendly . The food was wonderful!
I recommend this to all my friends and no one has ever regretted it!
This is our restaurant of choice!
IL Buco is never a disappointment; always excellent food served nice and hot!!
Owners Susan and Enrique have a true gift for stellar Italian food made fresh on site. The ambiance together with the lake view in the summer from the outdoor patio or the warm cozy atmosphere with fireplace in winter it truly is a little bit of heaven year round. And it won’t break the bank.
Always had a great meal and great service every time we are there. I would recommend the place to anyone I know. Will be back agai.
I took my mom for Mother’s Day and we had an amazing time and meal. Our waiter was pleasant and made sure all our needs were met. He even made a lovely wine recommendation and didn’t seem concerned with trying to sell us based on price. As I come from Oakville and find myself eating in Toronto often as well, it was very refreshing to find such great quality food for much better pricing and with much better service.
Excellent Outdoor patio with waterfront View. Super Food, superb wine. Great Beer.
Meal was excellent as usual. Our waiter, Russ, was excellent. Nice wine list. Looking forward to coming and enjoying the patio.
Biggest asset, the people that work there. The food is authentic and delicious. The service is classy, attentive but not intrusive
It is by far one of the better Italian Restaurants across Canada (Business travelled the country for a few years). It's our local favourite. Bravo IL Buco
We are always happy with both the food (which is excellent) and the service. They have an awesome Tenor on board so mention birthdays, he will sing for you. Love love love this place.
Mother and daughter dinner
Food was amazing. Service was a little slower then I’m used to, keep in mind it was a packed house on a Friday night so I guess it was expected.
Overall I would return back just to hear the waiter sing happy birthday. Fantastic voice.
Entrance / exit extremely poor lower level..rusted doors,dirty walls and floors. Had taken newly married friends as a gift to them. We were somewhat embarrassed! Our first time to II Buco, at Winterlicious, we entered at the main street entrance. Found that entrance extremely disappointing as well. Soiled walls and unclean floors do not make a good impression.
Food, service and friendliness ... Excellent
The singer is a great touch , great voice , it added to the fun . When in Italy some of the staff would come out and sing we loved it .
My wife and I celebrated our 48th anniversary here. The service was excellent as was the food. We both had the Classic Caesar Salad and followed it with the Pork Scaloppini Gorganzola. This Gorganzola sauce is to die for . The atmosphere is like being in Italy, the decor and small details. The view is very nice as you look out over the bay. We will definitely be dining here again and would highly recommend that people come here to enjoy the experience.
Thank you to the staff for great service and great food.
Amazing food , great service
Would recommend this place !!
This is a great restaurant with authentic Italian food, lovely atmosphere, great staff and service and good value. Ciao!
Fabulous dinner ! We just loved the high table that was reserved for us. Our waiter was excellent and introduced us to a great new wine. It was a special occasion and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner there.
We visited il Buco for our anniversary. I can't say enough about the atmosphere and the service (authentic through and through). They paid attention to every little detail without being over the top.
Our server, Cyril, was fantastic. He had an amazing sense of humour and really brought home the whole experience.
The food you ask?
It was sensational!
Please don't let the prices fool you. This place is the real deal, and at a reasonable price. As mentioned, the attention to detail was really impressive.
I have already recommended it to friends and colleagues and will be back when the opportunity presents itself.
Thank you for a great experience.
PS: if the bone-in veal chop is on special, and you are a real meat fan, please do yourself a favour and order it. It is delicious and massive (ala. Flintstones).
We went for the food, (which was fantastic) and enjoyed the entertaining waiter. He was the true Italian experience! We will (and have) referred our friends to this wonderful little gem! Thanks for making our wedding day so special!
My favourite restaurant by far. The food and service is always amazing. Ive been going there for about 4 years and i have never had a bad experience there.
Great service, amazing food. Decent wine list and cozy, comfortable atmosphere.
Excellent gem in downtown Barrie, service was amazing, cozy on a winter night and beautiful when the patio is open on a summer night. Great for date night, food is quality and authentic. Great wine list as well.
Food and service was fantastic! Ordered the mussels and calamari as appetizers. Calamari was a bit spicier than anticipated, but still enjoyed it. The Pickerel was the fish of the day, and was prepared great with delicious vegetables. Manicotti was fantastic! Entrees were so good I had to order another and had the lasagna! Our server also did a great job of having the meals out in a very timely fashion, keeping us looked after, but not checking in too excessively. Looking forward to our next night out here!
Fantastic restaurant. It is always a great experience there. Can't wait to go back.
