“Yummo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Wow! tucked away on Bay lane this food rocked our world. We thought it was the best pizza we've had in a long time..and to confirm this our Italian friend who we met with there said the bruschette was better than his mum used to make in Italy! Great place...you can feel the love in the food and the service.

“A slice of tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

We decided to go to Il Buco due to the great reviews on TripAdvisor and after having been there twice during our stay we just have to chime in and say: what a great place to eat!

The ingredients, the recipies - it's all so simple and so perfectly executed!

Il Buco manages to capture the essence of pizza and really makes you feel like you're sitting in a little restaurant in Italy.

We'd probably give 6 stars if that was possible!

“HOT, tasty, authentic pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

If you want HOT (as opposed to warm-ish) tasty, authentic pizza, this is your place. Straight out of the oven to your table, and friendly staff to boot. AND we are absolute pizza-holics. Will definitely be back SOON!
