Buca King Street West brings Italy to Toronto’s dining hotbed on King Street West. Buca has been internationally celebrated for its locally sourced, constantly changing menu. Guests are drawn to return time and again for the warm hospitality and artisanal fare, including famed house-cured meats, pizza, and pasta, inspired by the classic traditions of Italy with a contemporary culinary touch. An open curing room is on view, and beyond the Enoteca, a smaller wine bar, offers the perfect space for intimate gatherings. Tucked at the end of a private brick walkway, guests can choose to dine under the soaring ceilings of the restaurant’s industrial chic dining room. Consistently rated one of Canada’s best restaurants by critics since its opening, Buca is a modern classic built on the perfect balance of old world and new.

    Was rushed throughout the entire dining experience. Waitress cleared our plates before we finished our apps. Was also ushered out right after we paid even though our booking time limit hadn’t even come up. Will not be returning

    The carbanara is very good! Service was outstanding. Never had a glass half full of water. Very on top of things. Food is a little pricey for what you’re getting but nonetheless very delicious. They’re pizzas are good value because they’re massive. Overall great time.

    We have been to Buca many times. This time we found the execution of the menu to be below previous experiences and in the end over-priced for the quality.

    We did not receive a side dish and accused of lying by the server. She was incredibly rude. On a $400 bill that was unacceptable.

    Surprised this is on the michelin list. My pasta was salty and the server was not interested in a single diner, had a table of ten,with the possibility of a bigger tip, to cater to. Can not recommend.

    went here with a group of friends for my boyfriend's birthday, and the food was excellent but the server kept asking us questions about money and if we were certain we could afford certain things on the menu, which really threw off the vibe of the dinner. I felt since we were younger than most of the patrons we were being treated differently and with a little less respect, which was extremely disappointing.

    Buca was an amazing restaurant that did not disappoint! Best service we have ever had in a restaurant for a very long time. The server new every dish and was able to explain in detail what to expect. We ordered apps, mains and dessert- all were exceptional! Wine list a little pricey but to be expected with a high end restaurant. The atmosphere is a cool vibe in what appeared to be an old warehouse. We would definitely return and highly recommend to friends!

    I recently had the pleasure of dining at Buca Restaurant and I was blown away by the experience. The food was absolutely delicious, with each dish being carefully crafted and full of flavor. The service was top notch, with the waitstaff being attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The atmosphere was cozy and inviting, making it the perfect spot for a date night or a special occasion. Overall, I highly recommend Buca Restaurant for anyone looking for a high-quality dining experience.

    Food was high quality, well-prepared, and well-presented. Wait staff were attentive without being intrusive. A good evening! However, the evening almost didn't happen because the Open Table system inexplicably sent an email cancelling my reservation, yet the reservation was still active at the restaurant's end. Better fix that bug, Open Table!

    Everything about the experience was OUTSTANDING, except for the menus. The font was so small and faint as to be almost unreadable. Noticed several customers going for their lighting / magnifiying apps on their phones and smart watches. A small thing (see what I did there?) bit easily fixed.

    Date night with my boyfriend - we are from Montreal. The service was impeccable from the moment we arrived until we left. The food and wine was very good. The only downside from our overall experience is the temperature in the resto. It was so hot the whole time and little ambiance.
