House made salumi, excellent olive oils and bread, tender pastas. The main room is lively but for a real treat, ask for a place in the wine cellar.

We were here with a rather large group, seated in a small alcove/private area towards the back. The service was great and the food excellent. The wine selection is also very good. My only qualm was the way they pushed the first wine on the host. It was obviously out of our price range, and although ordered, I think he... More

Menu a bit confusing however the waiters are happy to help.... One of... More

Recent repeat visit for lunch. Food and service were great. Our waiter was helpful in selecting wine and starters. Kale salad and Fava Bean salad were spectacular. Swordfish entree was equally enjoyable. The big disappointment came in the restroom! Despite all of the herbs and candles, the smell of urine was sickeningly overpowering. Our dining party all detected and suspected... More

We went with two Italian foodie friends who gave it high marks. The cacio e pepe did not quite convince the table at first, but people grew to like it better as they neared the sauce at the bottom. The short rib panino was not quite up to the standards of the short-ribs at Da Marcella, much less the Gotham,... More

My friend and I visited from London and booked beforehand after some excellent reviews. Our food was delicious and we thought the decor and layout was really very beautiful and thoughtful. For us however the waiters were rather surly and service was very slow indeed and people next to us were complaining of the same thing - perhaps a Friday... More

Really nice place, not to big, furnished with great taste, service very kind and efficient! We were there in 7 at lunch time. We ate a few starters, an Italian main course - pappardelle were really good (ok, remember they are in NY not in Rome)... - and chicken (really well done). In general: - 10 for the atmosphere -...

We were looking forward to our Il Buco experience, but we left feeling very disappointed. Four people pushed wine on us and acted as though we were wrong to decline. Our bread and olive oil was yummy. Yummy ended there. The appetizer was supposed to include a horseradish sauce, and there was not a hint of it on the plate.... More
