Meeting a friend - good food and lovely wine
I never leave disappointed, to the greetings at the door to service to the outstanding food, I’ll Bucco knows what they are doing and do it very well when it comes to pasta.
Definitely has become our favourite spot, we’d come more often if we could.
Absolutely delightful! Anytime I am in the Barrie area I head to Il Buco to eat. Guaranteed delicious eating at a very affordable price. I love my coffee and theirs is A+++++
Highly recommend a visit - or several to Il Buco!
It was my birthday so we went to a restaurant that we had been to before and knew it would be good. We were not disappointed.
Amazing food! They accommodated my reservation request by seating us at the window. The wait staff was very personable and fun to deal with. We had a great experience!
Always a favourite after 7 visits over a two-year period.
After the rather uninviting entrance from Dunlop St., it was a very pleasant surprise as the whole room opened up before us. Very nice. Had we known about a rear entrance, where we parked, it would have been a much better experience. However inside was very nice, the food was excellent, our waiter/server was very good. Overall, a pleasant experience that we would recommend to others.
We will absolutely return. Great food and we had an amazing server. Thanks Russ!!
This was our first visit and we will definitely be back. The atmosphere was perfect. Our dinner was excellent and our waitress Jennifer was wonderful. Thank you for helping us celebrate our anniversary 💗
It was my husbands birthday
He had the lemon shrimp and the penne vodka
He can’t stop raving about the meal
The best pasta he has ever had
Thank you for making the occasion special
Il Buco is an amazing Italian spot in Barrie that surprises every time I visit. The menu offers delicious options with consistent value and variety. It's a great spot for a date night, special occasion, or a casual Italian dinner with friends and family. The price point for the value of the dishes is something you do not want to miss out on. Great hidden gem!
We loved our recent first time dinner at Il Buco. Our server was very attentive. Il Buco has a lovely ambience with candlelit tables in the evening. We started off with antipasto. It had a nice variety of items, however the grilled zucchini and portobello mushrooms were a little bland. My husband and I had the filetto portbello which was tasty and tender. Our daughter really enjoyed the manicotti. We finished up with tiramisu and creme brulee. The creme brulee was the best I've ever tasted! Prices were moderate, desserts were a bit pricey. Overall a very enjoyable experience!
My husband and I as well as family and friends dine at Il Buco quite often. Il Buco is our go to restaurant.
Service is great, the special touch of Italian opera singing once in ahwile is amazing.
The food.... has never failed, always delicious.
Keep up the good work. Can't wait for my next visit.
Cheers!!!! Angela Mawdsley
As always, OUTSTANDING!
il Buco has been our favourite restuarant for years in Barrie and they never disappoint.
The food, atmosphere and the service are always top shelf. We look forward to our next visit.
PS - we tell people all the time - il Buco is THE place to go!
I was so happy you were able to work around my boyfriends food allergy, our service was amazing. The meal was amazing.
Thank you so much to our server who was an absolute delight.
we enjoyed our experience and will most likely be back. I was not overly pleased with the table we had . It was my wifes birthday, which I noted when I booked on line. Something more intimate would have been much better. Our waiter was excellent. The food was good.
Incredible food always!! Thank you!!!!
We have never been disappointed with the service and food at your restaurant. Most especially nice to be served and welcomed by one of the proprietors.
Enjoyed our meal overlooking the bay. A nice place to meet friends and a good lunch
Over priced wine. Good appetizers. Meal was just okay.
We have been here before and it is always good. The ambiance is wonderful, the service is very attentive. The food is delicious, nice variety, something for everyone. Very good menu. The wine list is good too. We had a great bottle of red wine.
One always feels welcome. There is a nice patio overlooking Kempenfelt Bay, and is lovely in the summer. Highly recommended.
We went here during barrielicous with a couple of friends on a Saturday night. The food and service was awesome! One friend got the chicken parm and said it was probably the best he’s ever had. I ordered the lamb shank, something I’ve never had before and loved it! All of our meals were very good and the service was prompt and friendly, overall a great experience!
We really had a great evening. The food was very yummy!!
Second time eating here and the food was amazing both times. Our waitress was awesome. It is a bit pricey, but a great spot for a special night out or if you want to impress someone.
Amazing food. Ample size servings. Great service. Just overall a great night out!
Number one choice for that soecial occasion. Food is amazing. Great wine selection. Service is great too. The only issue is the seating. Waterfront is beautiful if you can get a seat to enjoy the view. We have yet to get one even with reservations.
The staff was very friendly, loved the candlelight and dark atmosphere, not crowded, view of the bay. Food was very good, time to sit and talk,
Very delicious. Nothing bad on the menu. House red is light but tasty.
As usual Il Bucco never fails to deliver. A great restaurant in the heart of Barrie My all time favourite.
Excellent as always. Never let down. Best spit in Barrie. Service excellence
Such great food. We will certainly be back. Service was wonderful. The decor is perfect
First time going to this amazing place. Waiter went above and beyond without being intrusive . Compliments to the chef our meals were outstanding . Thank you for a beautiful birthday dinner
Entirely pleased with the food and service. The one off-putting element was the entrance off Dunlop Street - a very gritty and unwelcoming entrance, full of cigarette smoke. I believe there is another entrance that would be far more pleasant.
I have been here a few times now and the food is always fantastic. The Beef Carpaccio melts in your mouth. Always a fantastic meal!
Although a bit pricy, the value is in the quality of the food and atmosphere. Service was a little slow, but very understandable for a busy Saturday evening. More wait staff may help.
Enjoyable Birthday Celebration!!!
Thank You!! Il Buco
Great meal everyone enjoyed their selection
Good Service, Good Food, Good Service. We will be back :)
This restaurant is a favourite place for a nice dinner.
Great staff, great food and great times!!
We celebrated New Years Eve and as usual the service and food were incredible,it’s our favorite restaurant to go to for any special occasion. The atmosphere is lovely and romantic. We will be back for Valentines Day!
Great food and service, reasonably priced. First time there and will return for sure.
