We were greeted with friendly smiles and really enjoyed our evening! The service here was excellent! Our server was great and many of our friends commented on his great personality! Atmosphere and food were great. Would definitely visit again! Very yummie. If you are in the area and looking for a nice dinner then check them out!

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 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

If you haven't been to il Buco - go now! Amazing, delicious and fresh food with generous helpings. Staff is very professional, courteous and attentive. Food was beyond amazing - I found myself trying to eat slower so I could enjoy the meal longer!
