Excellent location with a view.

We have been to ll Buco twice now and have had excellent service and food each time. We will definitely go back. We are use to some very good Italian food in Toronto and the USA so it is nice to have a place in Barrie finally. We find a lot of places in Barrie lacks consistency, so to have... read more

Barrie does not do 'fine dining' but this is one of the best 2nd-tier restaurants. I booked for a 'special birthday' on a weeknight which was not passed along to the server. He was friendly but not attentive. Water glasses were not refilled and coffee not offered. The food off the Barrielicious menu was tasty and good value. Décor is... More

We've wanted to try this restaurant for a while so we thought we'd give it a try for Barrielicious. It was a gorgeous evening so we sat on the patio- really great. Beautiful view. Had the mushroom soup to start- very good. Hubby had the salmon and really enjoyed it. I had the spinach & ricotta manicotti and wish I... More

Service is impeccable, prompt and knowledgeable! Thank you! Way to keep a place running! Extensive vine list, anyone can fine his favorite one, and most of all... More

I had the beef carpaccio and the chicken Parmesan offered as a part of Barrilicious. Fantastic. Filling. Sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather. Service was excellent.

Great view, great service, great food. Very accommodating and pleasant staff. Food portions were well-sized and food was of very good quality. We were there for Barrielicious and this restaurant definitely did not cut corners. It was a good representation of their food and service. Nice job!

She did apologize and offered to have it cleaned if it did stain.... More

Dear Wngsfn11, I want to thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am terribly sorry for spilling your wine and you are correct, I should have done more. I do hope you will return and allow me to make up for your disappointment from this visit. Hopefully we will see you again soon. More

This was our first time here and we didn't want pub food with loud music. So we decided to try here and the owner explained that he was waiting for 25 people to show up and that he could seat us but we would have to wait to order. I said better to sit and wait then go back down... More
