We booked well in advance all the way from Australia. Lucky we did, it was fully booked at 6.30pm already. We LOVE nice food and wine and we were not disappointed - one of our best meals in NYC. Food was amazing, great wine list and our waiter was very good with his wine recommendation. Not cheap but well worth... More

My daughter picked this restaurant for dinner 4/12/2014, we had a reservation for 4 at 6pm. We arrived a bit early and were seated immediately. The decor is charming, unfortunately, one cannot dine on decor and ambiance. The pressure to purchase wine was irratating and the reaction to our saying no to wine was unsavory. The Burrata plate looked lovely,... More

IL Buco, Alimentari and Vineria in NOHO requires a reservation. Casual, community seating and plan to share dishes with your friends. House wine is excellent, service very attentive and a wide variety of very creative dishes. Do the short ribs for two, saving room for some fine desserts.

Was in NY over Thanksgiving week and a friend who is a big foodie suggested this restaurant. I loved the rustic charm, the food was excellent and service was too. If you want to try authentic Italian dining, this is your place.
