Il Buco is one of Barrie's best kept secrets. It is fine Italian cuisine in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Come and enjoy a relaxing lunch or dinner while taking in the beautiful view of Kempenfelt Bay.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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)
