Best place to eat in Oakville!

Everytime my husband and I come to Buca di Bacco we say the same thing. Tonight's meal was the best thus far. Each and everytime the same thing happens. We don't know which is better the food or the service. They are both impeccable. We wait in anticipation to hear the specials as they are always... read more

We were here for dinner a few years ago, and although we fully intended to return much sooner, we finally made it last evening. I seriously regret not returning sooner as once again we had a delightful dining experience. Alberto was gracious, helpful (particularly with my very poor Italian, but also with wine and dinner choices) and charming. To start,... More

As we sat on the patio, the sun was shining and we felt like we were in Sorrento. It was a quiet day so Chef was chef and server and this charming owner has a talent. The carpaccio was delicate without being overwhelmed by oil. The seafood pasta was beautifully seasoned and the scallops and octopus were tender. A perfect... More

Finally visited this ristorante, nice rustic dining room, great food and decent wine list. Well priced for downtown Oakville, next time we'll try the patio

Went for dinner with a colleague. We both agreed the service was fine. We both had the arugula salad followed by the veal marsala which is one of my favorite dishes. Had better elsewhere. The salad was very good.

We frequent this restaurant on a regular basis as the food is consistently good. The service is fantastic and the atmosphere is casual and comfortable. They make their own fresh bread, pasta and sauces, which is always very tasty and they serve amazing olive tapenade. I also appreciate that they welcome young children and have good food for them.

Recently celebrated a birthday at Buca Di Bacco, one of Oakville's better Italian restaurants. Outside patio was hopping on a lovely summer evening. Restaurant is one and a half blocks north of Lakeshore on Thomas Street so traffic noise is not a bother. Finally opted for nicely decorated indoor due to concerns about falling temperature as sun set. Both would... More

This is a highly regarded restaurant so we were eager to check it out. The service was great, the waiter helpful and eager to make sure we had a pleasant evening. The food was good, but not cooked quite right. The calamari was rubbery, the duck was a bit raw, and the risotto was not cooked enough. So the food... More

Authentic food and fantastic service! Felt like we were in Florence...especially when they brought around the Limoncello at the end of the meal. Will be back.
