We've had booked three events at this restaurant, and each time it's an amazing experience. Their professionalism, the quality of their food, and their friendly staff has made the events successful. Their food has the authentic Italian taste. Working with Enrico on the planning for this event was very helpful. Thanks to Enrico, Jennifer and John for an amazing time.

Our work group does Barrielicious every summer - we chose Il Buco this time. We had Russell as our server - very friendly! The interior is well done, perfect for date night. The patio has a great view of the water! Overall excellent experience!

My husband and I picked up this restaurant by chance last Sunday and we were pleasantly surprised by the great food and service offered at such good price (Barrielicious). Quite a bit of choice in the menu. I have the salmon, which is very tender and juicy. The carrot cake also tastes good and fresh; and so is the tiramisu.... More

I checked the reviews on Tripadvisor looking for a nice restaurant in Barrie. It came highly recommended. I phoned and made reservations and was treated to lovely lady who was quite honest and told me that the street maybe closed and where to find parking. We approached the restaurant from Dunlop and there was a small door which raised some... More

First off, my wife is an excellent cook so going out for dinner is generally not high on our list. We've been to Il Buco twice now and we've been more than satisfied with the food and experience both times. The meat dishes have all been excellent as have the salads and appetizers. If you're looking to try a new... More

The absolute favorite of both by wife & I for the past several years, never disappoints, great staff, amazing food and very reasonably priced. Weekly specials are varied, and excellent, homemade pastas are simply fantastic. The whole restaurant has a view of the lake, and the outdoor patio is too good to be missed in the warm summer months. buon... More
