Il Buco is a lovely Italian restaurant with a terrific view and small patio overlooking Kempenfelt Bay. The entrance off Dunlop Street is enough to make you question where you are going, but once in the atmosphere of the restaurant is perfect. The food is terrific and the staff very attentive and friendly.

We had a great lunch recently....and figured it was good value. They offered a 3 course lunch for $15, which 2 of us had..... The Italian salad was very crisp and fresh and lightly dressed - a perfect starter portion. One lunch entree was manicotti which was offered in 2 sizes - love the choice, but went big and had...

If you can get a table by the window you will have a beautiful view of Kempenfelt Bay. The food from appetizer or dessert was delicious. The staff were attentive and knew the menu very well.

We met another couple here on our recommendation. Needless to say they were truly impressed as we were on our first visit. Their menu has something for everyone and an excellent wine list. Our waiter was fantastic. The food was excellent and plentiful. I would say that Il Buco is the best Italian ristorante in Barrie. Highly recommended!!

There are two key components in my opinion that make a restaurant visit note worthy positively or negatively. The quality of food and service. Bad service can ruin the best of meals while good service can make the ordinary more enjoyable. This place nails both food and service with 5 stars across the board. There was one waitress / greeter... More

Lovely Italian restaurant! My husband and I had a fantastic experience here. We ordered the beet salad, shrimp and calamari, and the seafood risotto special. All were wonderful! The service from our waitress Jenn was spectacular. Very good find, I highly recommend dining here when in Barrie.
