Good atmosphere, indoors and on the outside patio, plus live entertainment. Food and service disappointed.

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... read 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.

Three of us ate here, and all the meals were very good. I had the spicy Rigatoni with sausage, my wfie had the White Fish special, and my friend, the Rack of Lamb. All were very good, and a good size. We shared two Apps, the Fried Feta Cheese special, and the Beef Carpaccio, both very tasty. With a couple... More

We have eaten here a number of times for lunch, always good food & good service. We have had a few dinners there & that's a different story. We tried again just before Christmas & it was a noisy chaotic evening. The food is good but what is not good: waiting for a table despite reservations, incredible noise level so... More

Stopped by on a Tuesday night around 6:30. The place was empty and we were asked if we had a reservation which we did not have. Within the hour the place was full so I would imagine you would need a reservation if choosing to eat later. This place is cozy with a nice atmosphere and would be really nice... More

We love going to this restaurant for lunch; it's generally quiet and the service is attentive. The rotolo is a favourite, and the wine selection is good. The atmosphere is relaxed, and wait staff are knowledgeable. Buca di Bacco is as good, maybe even better, than many Italian restaurants in Toronto, and the prices are easier to live with. Highly...
