My mother asked if the owner would stop loudly whistling and he told her it was his restaurant and to deal with it. Very rude and ruined the night.

We happened on to this restaurant after one of our standard restaurants was full - and what a find! The complimentary focaccia bread with thyme and black olive tapenade was exquisite. We had our now standard 4 appetizer meal - grilled calamari was best in the city, beef carpaccio elegantly flavoured and served, as was the grilled portobello, and caprese... More

On a whim my husband and I decided to go out for dinner. We thought about our favs Jonathan's, Salvatore's or Seasons. My husband had the choice this evening Buca Di Bacco. My first instinct was no please not there....I have heard that the service is next to awful, the food is okay and the noise level almost intolerable. I... More

The food is super good. Service was a little slow but....the place was pack and a bit warm. It was a Saturday night.....we did reserve and our table was ready. Again...the food is amazing.

Buca di Bacco is by far the best restaurant in Downtown Oakville, nothing else compares. The food, ambiance and service is exceptional. From the moment you walk in to the time you leave, you truly feel like family. The staff and owners are friendly and made sure everything was perfect. Had a fantastic time with friends and the food was... More

Even the Parking area didn't take credit cards, drove around to find some change. But the food was DELICIOUS. Wanted to return but they were closed Sunday and had to be at the airport the next...

I like this restaurant. Great Italian food with great service, but very loud atmosphere. I did order veal on this occasion and was very disappointed. The veal was very tough and needed a steak knife to cut through the grissal. In the future I will stick with the lasagna or pizza.

My family LOVES Buca Di Bacco. I have four(big) boys and it hard finding restaurants that we ALL agree on. This is one of them. We are always greeted with enthusiasm. I really believe that they are happy we have joined them for dinner. The wine selection is always good and the pasta specials are always a favorite. In summer... More

My wife took me here or my birthday and the service was perfect. Attentive but not intrusive. Food was very creative and tasty. We had the stuffed veal and a mushroom pasta dish, both which were fabulous. Even the bread was memorable!
