Always outstanding; my husband asked for a dish not listed on the menu and they happily prepared it, no fuss at all and it was amazing!

We've eaten here a number of times; definitely a favourite. Everyone on staff clearly knows how to do their job. The service is professional and prompt. The food is perfect.
Il Buco is always a perfect choice!

Nice restaurant. Ate inside though they have an outdoor patio with views of the lake. Nice ambiance and our waitress was very good. Very pleasant and timing over the course of the meal was good. Try the roasted garlic app..delicious. Could use more choice of wines by the glass, though!

From the moment we entered, we had a great feeling that we were their guest. From a greeting to the end, every thing was very good. The staff even acknowledged our anniversary and surprised us with a dessert.

I would NOT be able to understand why anyone would give this restaurant a bad review...in all the years of going there, we have NEVER had a complaint about the food, service, view, level of noise, lightening...in other words everything has always been WONDERFUL!!

It was just ok. The server was nice, nothing spectacular. There was ZERO ambiance on the patio. Just noisy people, no music and servers kept bumping my chair. The food was good. I thought the ravioli would be homemade for the price but wasn’t. The apps were very good but again, nothing spectacular. I spent over $180 on a 25th anniversary dinner and it was just ok. Nothing really bad but there was definitely no wow here for the price.

Friendly attentive service. Delicious food. Unfortunately no vegetarian options on the menu besides tomato and noodles. I was tired of ordering the same special - ravioli with cheese and spinach. When I pointed that out the server arranged with the chef to add some mushrooms and green vegetables to the menu linguine. It was great! I hope more varied vegetarian dishes become included on their menu so we can come back more often.

We shared Enrico's famous roasted garlic which was as usual delicious. I had the spaghetti mare which was very good and quite a large portion. The only thing that could have been improved upon was the seating. We were at a table for two beside a wall and I felt like we were encroaching upon the space of the couple beside us. Trying to stay closer to the wall was a little claustrophobic.

Food was very good, and prices very reasonable. Service was capable and friendly. The only issue was it was very loud in the restaurant. It’s a shame because the ambiance is actually quite nice with the view of the water, etc. We are not particularly sensitive to noise, but we couldn’t even hear each other across the table. It would be great if they can do something to increase the noise dampening in the room as that was the only issue in an otherwise very lovely experience.
Definitely recommended.
