My husband didn't believe me that the restaurant was rated no 1 on TA. That was until he tasted the pizza!!! Forget fancy restaurants images. This is an honest, humble pizzeria with uncomfortable seats. It's set alongside a group of other small restaurants in a lane. The waiters were fun but still professional. We had the 4 cheeses with proscuitto on top, makes me smile just thinking about it! If you love a thin based traditional pizza, II Buco is for you. Oh! it's BYO but there's a really good bottle store on the opposite corner.

Went in in my own on my first visit and first meal at Byron and I picked a winner. Had the Il Buco Calzone, it was amazing. The staff were friendly and attentive and it was very busy. Would defiantly recommend! Big meal and well priced.

What an amazing little restaurant! I highly highly recommend everyone to visit this place whilst in Byron. I am a pizza lover from way back and extremely fussy. This place did not fail to please. I couldn't say a single bad thing, we ordered the pepperoni pizza (all time favourite) and I was in heaven! This is the best pizza I have had in my entire life including throughout Europe. The Tiramisu is to die for as well! Such a lovely atmosphere and very quick service considering how busy it was. The staff are just beautiful as well, to top it all off. An all round perfect dining experience! Thank you Ill Bucco!!!

This is one of the best Italian meals I've had anywhere, including Italy. We had the Il Buco calzone. With three different cheeses, mushrooms, spinach, passata, prosciuto and rocket, it sounds like a lot going on. But what you taste is perfectly balanced and absolutely delicious. I was picking the traces off the takeaway box. Such behaviour is not dignified, but necessary.

Also the service was warm, friendly and very very fast.
