We had a wide variety of food and deserts. My picky eater son loved the special pasta of the day which was chicken and Mozzarella Ravioli in a Rosé sauce. My favourite was the roasted beet salad appetizer. The Tartufo ice cream was excellent and was presented so beautifully.

I have been to Il Buco for dinner and lunch. They have never failed to impress with the quality of their offerings. This value is enhanced when coupled with "Barrielicious" for an excellent price and menu options. If possible to take advantage of their patio, do so. You'd be advised to wait til the summer sun is hidden however since... More

I was a little disappointed with this restaurant. I expected fine dining which is what the restaurant looked to be. The caesar salad was plain, the items were expensive and I could have made it at home. Kitchen makeover might be good.

Menu has variety and everything ordered was delicious. Must go back and try other choices. Atmosphere was romantic, quiet, subdued lighting. Service was cheerful and prompt, attentive. Will be going back again.

The atmosphere is good for a date or intimate dinner. The roasted garlic appetizer is great, but you'd both better have it if you're planning to share a nightcap later!

Went to Il Buco in Barrie with a friend from England. Had the chicken parm and a mushroom pasta dish. Absolutely beautiful and delicious ! The wine was a New Zealand Marlborough, but others excellent selections on offer. Sat on the outdoor patio over looking bay. Stunning! Service was great. I would recommend a reservation, especially if you want one... More
