One of the more egregious sins of a chef are over/under-cooking, and on the evening of our recent dinner, regrettably, both occurred. Our pulpo appetizers were incinerated, while our steelhead trout entrees were shockingly 75+% raw. We also shared, with our appetizers, the ink squid past with crab and the preparer nailed this one which suggests that the talent is... More

The atmosphere at Il Buco is rustic and Tuscan - very romantic and cozy. The service is impeccable. It was recommended for our anniversary and did not disappoint. Having traveled frequently to Italy - I found the food to be authentic - exceptionally prepared from appetizer to dessert. They have a lovely wine list as well. For us, it is... More

I'm becoming more and more disappointed with this restaurant. I've been coming here for at least 14 years. Even though the ambiance is lovely and the service is generally good, the food is erratic. Last night the bread was like cardboard. Risotto with pears and gorgonzola looked and tasted like it had been sitting under heat lamps for way too... More

If you're in the Noho area this is a top spot to meet friends. The coffee is definitely of a better quality than most places. We had the really excellent avocado and eggs on toast, plus the baked eggs. To be recommended.

I came him with my wife for a casual lunch last Friday. She is vegan, so not always easy to find a place we both enjoy. The food was outstanding - great quality, fresh ingredients, creative menu items - we loved it. And our waiter, who seemed a bit curmudgeonly at first, warmed up and gave us some excellent recommendations.... More

We had a fantastic dinner for 7. The food was delicious and the service was above expectations. The bar is cozy and compliments the romantic interior. I look forward to my next visit.
