I will never ever go back to Il Buco. I was very excited from all of the great reviews but my experience first hand was by far, the worst dining experience in Manhattan (and possibly in all of my travels). I ordered the Risotto at the recommendation of the server. The only flavour in the risotto was salt. Just pure... More

Three of us enjoyed a great meal last night. For appetizers we shared Zucchini Flowers, just a bit too salty, and a cheese platter. The cheese selection was superb. The fresh black walnuts were terrific. We ordered two main courses, a pork dish as well as a pasta. The portions were not large and I was concerned that we would... More

We stumbled across this place by a lucky accident. This place has a great feel to it, herbs outside the outdoor tables, funky and characterful decor, pleasant friendly wait staff and really nice flavourful food. My friend and I had pasta dishes which were very nice and my partner had a lamb chop that he said was the best he... More

On one part a restaurant (Vineria), on the other part a gourmet food pantry (Alimentari). Possibly one of the best diners this year in Manhatan and elsewhere as a matter of fact! We had divine lamb ribs, salt-baked seabass and the best botarga pasta ever! The selection of cheese makes it hard to choose from and for desert, I recommend... More

I was very impressed with the food here. We were a table of four sharing 3 appetizers (Salted Cod Croquette, Braised short rib, and Polpo) and each with their own main (2 pastas, a rissoto, and the fish). The portioning was perfect for each course and we all left feeling very satisfied. While I found the cod croquette a little... More

This place is just wonderful. The decor is outstanding. The food rocks. Grilled octopus, snapper raw and lamb tar tar were wonderful apps. Flank steak was awesome. Dessert was over the top great. Must dine place in the city. Great wine selection

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

You can indulge in a wine list longer than your arm and a good range of signature courses.... the raw materials are excellent, spices and herbs taste like they were cut 10 mins ago... Menu a bit confusing however the waiters are happy to help.... One of... More
