The food here was absolutely delicious...would definitely go back. My only complaint is that when we walked in the owner told us to just go seat ourselves. 20 minutes later I approached the bar to ask where our server was and nobody even knew we were there. They said the owner does this all the time. Our server made up... More

We had great service, both servers on worked as a team and were eager to make our dining experience excellent. Both of our meals were prepared fresh, and with care. We will be back!

This hidden gem, has not only ambiance, but class, and fabulous food! I had the seafood marinara over linguine - exquisite - so full of scallops, calamari, shrimp, I had to bring home close to half. Plus the service was excellent.

I have an Italian background so I’m usually picky when it comes to Italian food. But I was really impressed with everything about this place! I ordered a ravioli special and everyone ordered their own meal and not one of us had an ‘okay’ meal – everything was impressive! My fiancé didn’t order the steak because he didn’t think they...

This is hands down the greatest find my husband and I have come across. We rarely order from the printed menu as the daily specials are always spectacular. Our regular server Russell makes the experience each time. From the first time we dined our favorites, wine of choice, and apatite preference are always waiting for us. Always a delight, can't...

I returned to Il Buco again to dine for a special occasion. They seem to always have a few specials for dinner. I chose the fresh pickerel. The dinner was excellent. The service was excellent again. This location is becoming busier each time I have gone there. I recommend that you make a reservation. They also have seating near the... More
