My mother was visiting for the week so we decided to go to Il Buco for dinner one night. We were greeted very warmly at the door and took a table looking out at the lake. Our appetizer was Bruchetta and it was delicious. My Mother chose stuffed Manicotti. There were two on her plate and she could only eat... More

The food was good although the portion size was very small and the service was exceeding slow and they weren't busy. The view was nice from the lake side of the restaurant.

Our waitress, Jennifer, was so accommodating and interested in our stories, she even researched a Spanish/Portuguese card game for the two of us who had received a lovely gift of these cards you use to play the game! Over and... More

A birthday lunch with friends is always fun but this was especially great because our server Jennifer added to the experience with her knowledgeable suggestions, attentive service and warm hospitality. The food was excellent. Beef carpaccio was flavourful and the pork scallopini melted in your mouth. One of my friends ordered the mushroom soup and thought it was delicious. It... More
