    Good for late afternoon small plate snack and drink too. Grilled calamari $16 best, cured hamachi good $16.

    The persimmon salad with Sicilian pistachio was amazing, Cace e Pepe was best in class, Branzino was deboned and super fresh highly recommend !
  • Johnnie Skywalking
    Simplest pasta is often the tastiest at the best restaurants. Perfectly cooked spaghetti with cheese and black pepper. The best.

    This is the closest I've found to actually being in Italy. Amazing bakery, sandwiches, small snacks, sweets, preserves, oils, all delicious!

    The Bitches say: A-. It didn’t take any photo doctoring to capture the beauty of Il Buco’s brunch dishes. They were unique, delicious, and true Italian cooking. Brunch here is an absolute treat. Read more

    Incredible, decadent, fresh Italian just like mom used to make... if your mom was a celebrated Italian chef. Best Italian I've ever had.

    Keep in mind they charge $1/person if you want bread. I tried tuna off of restaurant week menu to try something different but it came very salty. Stick with cacio e pepe.

    Charming. A light bustle for brunch that signals a lot of action going on but enough space to keep the noise level light. Nifty spot that's a little unnoticed from the street but gets plenty traffic.

    One of my favorite spots in NYC. You'll want to stay all day eating the bowls of pasta (start w/ Bucatini Casio e Pepe) and paninis (start w/ Salame Rosa & Salva Creamasco), and drinking wine.

    The breakfast pizza with house cured prosciutto is great and big enough to feed two. Sneaky good brunch spot that takes reservations.

    Came for a work lunch, small menu but we loved everything. The portions are small too. So be forewarned, size doesn't detract from taste.

    Could be my favorite casual Italian place in NYC. Not exactly cheap but you feel like you are in Florence. Food and service is good, food is rustic Tuscan Italian. Short ribs are a must.

    A wonderful experience overall: the crispy cod panini is to die for, their cocktail collection is great and the service is excellent!

    Your ideal meal: acorn squash salad and ricotta bruschetta with grapes to start, bucatini cacio e pepe as the pasta course, and spit-roasted short ribs for a main. Read more

    The short ribs for two are just as good as all the tips say. Perfect juicy texture, and plenty of meat for two.

    I ordered the short ribs for two. Neither I nor the other person helping me with the dish found it worthy of the hype.
    CITY GRITAugust 5, 2014
    Start with the Hamachi Crudo, Fried Artichokes, Beef Tartare. If you don’t order the Bucatini Cacio e Pepe and the Short Rib for Two you have lost the day!

    Beef tartare topped with rings of hearts of palm is just plain sexy, a hulking plate of beef that is slow-cooked to an impossibly tender finish. Read more

    Used to enjoy eating at the bar. Now expect indifferent service & $2 bread fee. How might one eat ricotta sans bread? Just include it in the cheese price, the surcharge is insulting.

    You can't go wrong with any of the choices here. Everything is delicious. The only change I wish they made is the staff up front. They aren't helpful nor particularly nice. But the food is delicious!

    Start your morning with fried eggs and porchetta on toasted country bread. It's just the right amount of rich -- great way to start your day without making you want to take a nap.

    The short rib sandwich might be the best meaty sandwich I've had in the city. Vainilla gelato was excellent too.
  • Zayed K.

    Every bite of the short ribs is exceedingly luxurious, melt-in-your-mouth, meaty, fatty goodness. Perhaps even too much of a good thing, as you start to feel weighed down half way through the meal.

    Delicious Italian in a lively atmosphere, but the real stars of the show are the short ribs for 2, the porcetta sandwich and the Cacio e Pepe. They're totally worth the hype.

    This place feels like it was transported here directly from Tuscany. Dishes are simle, tasting of the sun on endless fields of sunflowers and grapes, including the fried bunny (trust us).

    Get seated at the long table in the back. But if you sit across from each other you'll be yelling all night. Get comfy and sit on the same side of the table.

    In the morning, a casual cafe offering light breakfast dishes. In the middle of the day, an Italian delicatessen. And at night, a bustling bar and dining room serving a menu of rustic Italian fare.

    Too brightly lit & store-like to be romantic, but food is delicious. My picks: crispy artichokes, bone marrow carpaccio, bucatini cacio e pepe, & porchetta. Finish w their oh-so-silky zuppa inglese.

    Perfectly done fried artichokes. Lasagnette is delicious! And the mint chocolate chip gelato that tastes surprisingly like fresh mint is a great way to end this amazing and comforting meal!

    Donna Lennard had meant to open a casual, wine-centered offshoot of Il Buco, which she opened 18 years ago on Bond Street. But then she installed a baker who makes slow-risen, wild-fermented breads...

    the worst hostess service. we were told 45'-1h and 2h later we're not seated and told we'd get a horrible table at the bar. such a joke . nice coat check lady though.

    The carbonara is an essential New York bite: pasta tossed with house-cured pancetta, eggs, Parmesan, and black pepper. More places to eat like a local:

    The offshoot of Il Buco just nails everything it tries, from the housemade charcuterie to the gelato for dessert. In a town of so many Italian restaurants, this is one to know.

    Seared octopus char, primi agnolotti pasta with butternut squash, sage and breadcrumbs. Finish with the sea salt branzino... You want it. All of it.

    Charcuterie! Pasta! Ribs! Ricotta! Agnolotti! Affogato! Agrodolce (cocktail with rye and aged balsamic)! Even the bread and evoo is DAMN GOOD.

    The seared octopus at Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria, is not only done just right—crispy on the outside, a bit gooey on the inside—but comes with a supporting cast of chickpeas and pickled currents.

    Very overrated place. The atmospheres nice: alive, busy. But the foods nothin special at all, really heavy. Tartare appetiser was probably the best. If u care about skinny jeans its not the best idea

    Get the gelato sampler. The chocolate chili definitely has a kick to it. Blueberry tasted fresh and fruity. Salted caramel was the best!

    In the front: a café, a bakery, and a provisions shop for house-cured salumi or casual lingering. At the back, a dining area with a perfect little menu of Italian classics.

    Our office was on Bond Street when this place opened and we were serious regulars. It's awesome and a great place for a 3pm cup of coffee without the coffee shop craziness.

    Simple, delicious Italian. Love the fried artichoke, the grilled octopus, the quail, and the ricotta ravioli. The panna cotta with aged balsamic is outta this world.

    This place got 3 stars from the Times and now you can't really turn up for dinner without a reservation. But they've got a sort-of secret breakfast that's totally delicious. Try the baked eggs.

    If you're with a group, you won't regret splitting the impeccably spiced, tender and multi-textured Spit-Roasted Short Ribs. Be sure to rate them on DishEnvy!

    Go for the house-prepared salumi ($10-$32). You can make a meal of the salumi, wine and cheese offerings, but then you'd miss the artfully prepared appetizers and entrees. Read more

    Great spot for a chic breakfast. Good coffee and the bomboloni (like donuts but no hole) are great. Ditto the house cured prosciutto. Nice neighborhood vibe & ambiance. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    It's four—maybe more—restaurants in one! Breakfast: sleepy, quiet, delicious. Lunch: hopping; sit at the bar at back. Afternoon: get bread and cured meat to go. Evening: slammed; yummers.

    Fabulous short ribs, rustic and peppery. The richness is balanced by celery, horseradish, Castelvetrano olives and lemon. (Lemon makes everything better.) It's gigantic, so you'll want to share it.

    Porchetta or Short Rib Sandwiches. The grocery is also fantastic. Their focaccia baguette is one of my favorite breads in NYC. Lardo, cheeses, coppa, whipped lard... Everything is delicious!

    Taste the gelati. Menu changes based on what's being butchered downstairs. Nose to tail approach. Incredible pastas. Great for sharing, a date, even family friendly. A true neighborhood gem
