                                                          This was the second time dining at your restaurant. The first time my wife and I were celebrating a wedding anniversary . The second time we brought my sister and brother-in-law. As always the food was excellent. We had a table right by the window over looking the beautiful lake and harbor of Barrie. We look forward and dining again at your restaurant . Thank You

                                                          Saturday evenings are generally busy at most restaurants and Il Buco was no exception. There were few empty tables and consequently the noise level was a challenge for any conversation. The quality of the fare was good, however most Italian reetaurants generally serve bread and offer a cheese tray instead of a dessert wagon. The service was good and our server was knowledgeable and pleasant. The wine list was limited and could be expanded to include wines from different regions of Italy. (Just a thought). Or perhaps develop a relationship with a Niagara-on-the-Lake vintner e.g. Two Sisters Overall, it was an easy going evening for all.

                                                          We recently had dinner at Il Buco and our party Of 4 enjoyed everything. The mushroom soup was fantastic as well as the Penne, lasagna and steak. Cheesecake for dessert was delicious too. No complaints. We will be back for sure!

                                                          Took a friend for birthday dinner, first time for both of us. We went vegetarian. The roasted garlic appetizer was wonderful, as were the pasta entrees. The house red wine was excellent value. Service provided by Russell was impeccable. Discreet birthday greetings and complimentary tiramisu topped off a lovely dining experience. Will definitely return, and recommend to friends.

                                                          Tables were small and a little too cluttered. Not enough craft beer selection but food was really good and service was very good! Lights should be a litter dimmer for dinner for a better ambiance! I will definitely go back though!

                                                          No our fiirst time to I’ll Buco! Great food. Nice atmosphere. Service is typically top notch ! This visit it was a bit too dark. Waiter spilled my dinner down my top and pants. Apologized. I think I should have had my glass of wine complimentary.
