This was my third time dining here and it was fantastic each and every time!
Service was fantastic and food was wonderful. Highly recommend the Shrimp fettuccine and the red snapper.
Overall all of the meals were amazing! The lasagna fell a bit short. But on the whole we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Our server was outstanding!!
My wife and I celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary . This was the first time we attended at ll Buco.
We loved the decor, gazing out your large windows to your outdoor patio and out to Kempenfelt Bay. The food was excellent . We sat at beside a another table with a couple who were celebrating their 57th wedding anniversary . To end the evening your restaurant gave a small dessert with a candle to my wife and the wife beside us. The waiter who serenades people celebrating birthdays and anniversaries, came to our tables and sang a song from Elvis Presley. Thank you all and our very friendly waiter. Hope to see you again.

Amazing food and fun waiter!
Will be back!
Always bring friends who have not been to the restaurant, they always enjoy the experience. Staff are always friendly, professional. Food is amazing.
We love this place its our go to Italian restaurant to entertain our friends and family from out of town here in Barrie
Excellent service. Food was outstanding! My favourite place to eat in Barrie!
First time being there and we did not leave disappointed. This has now become our favourite restaurant in Barrie!!
We met friends here for lunch based on the reviews.
We were not disappointed in any way.
The restaurant was clean and has a fantastic water view. The service was personable and very efficient.
The food was excellent. The four of us ordered: lasagna, Italian sausage, and salmon. Absolutely delicious. Each of us thought we had made the best menu choice. The taste was fantastic, there is no lack of flavour.
We will be back for sure and we highly recommend this restaurant.
We have been here several times and love the food and environment here. This part visit our waitress didn’t tell us the specials (we had to ask) or confirm us with what size of wine we wanted so we got charged for the biggest one. My meal also came cold so my husband had to start eating his without me. We have never had a issue there but it seems like they have hired some new waitresses.
In fact we have taken many friends to this restaurant it is our favourite
Out of town family
Excellent. Two Of us had a penne alla vodka And the others had the chicken Parmagiana. We were not rushed but didn’t feel Like we were waiting. Will be back
It was great, had great conversation and the food was awesome. Hats off to Il Buco. Can’t wait to go back.
Very attentive service. Quiet atmosphere with enjoyable music in background.
Fresh bread started great meal. Lasagna was a delight.
Pork with lemon white sauce was delicious.
Excellent place to eat.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening - the singing tenor was an added treat! We will be back.
We love dining here. The food is always delicious, with plenty of options on the menu to chose from. They also have a beautiful outdoor patio you can dine on. The staff are always polite & if you are celebrating a special occasion, they make it memorable.
We were celebrating our anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our dinner choices were excellent, with flavours and subtlety beyond words. No negative surprises. Lovely evening.
Everything was great as usual!!
We had an amazing time at Il Buco last weekend. It poured rain so we ended up coming into the restaurant after placing our order. Our server was very accommodating, polite, and friendly. I ordered the penne ala vodka and it was delicious and just the right amount. I will definitely go back again!
Ate on the outdoor patio ...it was lovely way to spend an evening with friends... terrific service and delicious food.
Great food, I don't eat out often but when I do this is a great place. Their specials are always worth a try, especially any seafood.
Definitely get the garlic appetizer. Best thing I have tasted in a long time.
Great food and great service
I would definitely go back. There were 4 of us and we all enjoyed our meal. The only suggestion I have is to add the choice of patio or inside when booking the reservation. We were hoping to sit outside but the patio was full.
My favorite place to dine in Barrie for over ten years, consistently great food, great value, and excellent staff
found this restaurant 4 years when stopping in Barrie for a night. since then we try come back every year for a delicious meal. service, food and outdoor seating is great. you will not be disappointed.
I love Il Buco. Never disappointed. The view of the waterfront is fantastic. Service is always great. They are able to accomodate food allergies. Never had a bad experience.
Lovely dining experience for my birthday. We dined early (6 pm) thinking that a Saturday night might get very busy and perhaps noisy. We enjoyed an excellent meal and our server was wonderful. A big thank you to another waiter who sang the best rendition of "happy birthday" I have heard. He has an amazing voice. We were nearly ready to leave when a large party of young women arrived to celebrate a "bride to be". Of course they were excited for their friend and it was a very large table right near ours. But we'd enjoyed a special meal and were happy to see them having a good time. Unfortunately it was a windy night or it would have been marvelous out on the terrace! What a beautiful view of the many boats on Kempenfelt Bay.
Went with 3 girlfriends to celebrate our birthdays which all fall within a month of each other. Food was great, our server was so sweet to give us a dessert to share. I was just disappointed that we missed Barrielicious which ended in July.
Always great service and the food is easily the best Italian in Barrie!
The food was absolutely wonderful, we all enjoyed our entrees immensely (penne a la vodka, risotto and spaghetti with seafood) but the highlight was Enrico’s Famous Garlic! We are still taking about it! The service was superb and the patio space is the best in Barrie. The only negative was that the table next to us was so intoxicated they were swearing loudly and stumbling about when they went to the restroom, bumping into other guests tables and chairs. That took away just a bit of enjoyment but what an incredible experience otherwise!
Excellent Italian restaurant this coming from an Italian. Food was excellent, good prices excellent service and a wonderful lake view from the patio. If I lived in Barrie I would visit this restaurant once a week. Loved it and definitely recommend.
Always a great experience from start to finish from the service to the meal. Our favourite restaurant in town! 👍🏻
As always, service was spectacular. Food was amazing, and the restaurant was clean and fantastic! Recommend to everyone!
We had a very nice dinner. The candles might be better if they weren't so tall. They interfere with seeing your guests across the table. Lighting should be lower on the table. We had to move them several times and we all found them a tad blinding because they were at eye level. It's hard to see past them. Just a thought.
Other than that, another delicious meal. Thank you.
(I hope you lower the candles haha)
I love I’ll Bucco but it was a busy Friday night and very loud and service slower then usual. We had to shout to talk.
We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary here. The food was excellent! The service was the best! The serenade made the occasion so special. Loved our experience at Il Buco. It made our anniversary so memorable.
Roasted garlic appetizer..not to be missed and not to be shared!
