Went for dinner with my wife for our anniversary.
The service, by John Carlos, was amazing.
The food was super tasty, great presentation and very well priced.
We will be returning with our friends in the very near future!

We booked for a party of 6 when it was actually 8, staff were very accommodating and totally made it work. The birthday singer was a great touch, not loud and annoying like some chains.
Food was very tasty, great variety and served hot despite so many large groups at the restaurant.

Our waiter was great! Cant wait to eat there again!

Il Buco seems to never disappoint. Service was excellent and food choice is extensive with something for everyone. Always like the quiet atmosphere and space to enjoy our group. We will be back.

We went there to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday and we were not disappointed. The waiter serenaded him and he was spectacular (even though he sang the wrong name lol).

It was a very good experience and would definitely go back.

We had a great meal. Beef Carpaccio, Veal Scallopini and Ceasar Salad. The only negative is that huge billboard blocking part of the gorgeous view. I know you have no control over that but what a shame.

J Carlo was amazing! We will definitely be back! The food was delicious as usual and the house wine was very tasty! There was a large group dining while we were there and our food still came out at a very reasonable time and perfectly timed after we finished our appetizers.

Il buco was absolutely amazing! The ambiance, food and exceptional service really blew my boyfriend and I away. We were celebrating a special occasion and Russ, our waiter, really went above and beyond for us. We will definitely be back in the near future.

My brother travels to Italy quite often and loves Italian food. We took him to Il bucco after hearing lots of good reviews. The only disappointment was that the famous singer was off that night!
