We had a great family dinner for my birthday celebration. Lovely meals - especially like the roasted garlic appetizer. Great and attentive service by Russell. Everyone from age 7 up enjoyed their meals. Thanks Il Buco!

Went for a birthday celebration and was surprised with a complimentary dessert! Food was excellent, house red wine was good and the price reasonable. Missing some small Italian details but overall good experience for Barrie. Looking forward to returning to try more menu items.

The lemon garlic shrimp appetizer was just as good as the last time I had it. My veal with seafood was also tasty. A chocolate cake was a sweet ending. The service was excellent. I will return.
