Hands down, THE best restaurant in Barrie. We have celebrated all our family milestones here for years and just adore the food, the atmosphere and the staff (shout out to Russell for his impeccable service and wit). This is casual and fine dining all rolled into one and I cannot say enough about the menu. Just keep doing what you are doing Il Buco!!!!!

Il Buco continues to impress with both food and service. Jen was our server once again. She's always cheery and attentive. Although not a menu item, we asked if we might get an order of bruschetta. She said no problem and it was excellent. We shared an order of mussels to start then I had the chicken parmigiana and my wife had the stuffed pasta shells with spinach and ricotta cheese. Everything was delicious. Try this restaurant. You'll really enjoy it. Butt don't forget to make a reservation.

Great service and very tasty food. Very busy restaurant. We each had the three course lunch and enjoyed it especially the salad with goat cheese. I entered the restaurant from the parking lot in the rear. The restaurant is on the second floor up a steep set of stairs. Once inside in order to go to the washroom you must descend a steep set of stairs to the basement/ground level and return up the steep stairs. Just before our meal ended we discovered there is an elevator to the washroom, and staff must go with you to unlock the door, and from there is a ground floor exit to the parking lot. I suggest that if you or anyone in your party has a wheel chair or walker or has difficulty navigating stairs you should advise the restaurant when you make a reservation and request that someone meet you at the back door to let you in and show you to the elevator.

Don't let the unimpressive entrance, or the name, fool you. IL BUCO ticked all the boxes for me. I visited twice before writing this review and I can state unequivocally that I was impressed both times... A solo dining experience, lacking the pleasure and the distraction of a partner, rarely makes for a satisfying evening, and IL BUCO's unpretentious main entrance (this an understatement) did not make for a comforting start to my first visit. But let me say right up front that the cold 'lobby' that reminded me of the entrance to a factory quickly gave way to one of the most welcoming and thoroughly satisfying solo dining experiences in memory. So much so that I had to go back a week later to make sure the first visit wasn't an aberration. Suffice to say the second visit matched or exceeded the first. Decor, menu options, wine list and the attentive, friendly service raised my expectations quickly and to my delight, the food matched the promise. So much so that as I mentioned earlier I had to go back a second time to see if there was the consistency that I prize so highly. Yes - IL BUCO has it. Perhaps the most satisfying twist to my second visit was explaining to the waitress how much I enjoyed the decor, the food and the service and then learning that she was one of the owners. I have already recommended IL BUCO to others and am now recommending it to you. Excellent menu and wine choices, delicious and imaginatively presented food, impeccably professional and friendly service all at a price that warmed my heart. Give it a try.

The food was amazing! My aunt and cousin just returned from a Caribbean vacation and the branzino here by far surpassed the quality and taste of any fish they ate at restaurants there (not AI). Every meal we ordered was delicious! At first we thought the quantity was a bit small but it was more than enough to fill us (& for the price it was more than reasonable). I do a lot of client entertaining at upper scale restaurants in the GTA and found the quality of food here the same but without the price tag. We were a large group with some non English speaking family members. The waitress was so patient as I translated the meals, specials and questions they had. My dad who hosted the dinner doesn’t typically like eating out and hosts at his house. But even he was very happy with the food and pleasantly surprised by the bill! (He whispered to me, well maybe it’s not worth it to host at home!) . We will definitely be back!!

Our recent dinner on Friday, July 7 at Il Buco was a PERFECT 10! Our waitress Jenn could not have been better plus she had a delightful sense of humour and secondly our dinners were SIMPLY DELICIOUS! My husband and I had been here twice before and once again this restaurant did not disappoint! We can’t wait to come back and are excited for everyone to have the same wonderful experience that we have had each and every time. Thank you Il Buco ! Kitty & Burt Retter

I was very disappointed with the smell and the lack of cleanliness. The tables the carpet the stair leading up to the restaurant. Very dirty and the place smells like urine. I did not want to sit down to eat. I would not recommend this place. We walked in and walked out. Too bad because the food is actually really good. We ate there last year, but it was packed we came in from the outside last year and did not notice the stairway entrance and because it was so busy did not notice the dirty carpet.

We visit this restaurant every couple weeks during the summer months for a Friday afternoon on the patio. The food is great, but our server John is why the visits are so special. Consistently the best service food and service in Barrie. Thank you from Table 45!

Nice meal we were gifted. We started with the Lemon Garlic Shrimp, I had the Chicken Parmigiana and my wife had Spaghetti Mare. The food was very tasty and plentiful and size. The service was exceptional. Desserts were exceptional. It was hard to spend the entire $150 gift card, prices are extremely fair. Parking is only street parking and can be tricky.

Our lunch was of excellent quality and at a price that would be twice as much at some restaurants I have visited in Toronto.One of our group wanted a dinner menu item and was accommodated. the only criticism i would offer is that the price of the wine per glass was out of line with the food prices; nonetheless it is worth 5 stars.
