    Ask to be seated at the wine cellar downstairs for an intimate dinner. Octopus/rabbit sausage/spaghetti with a sea urchin base/pollo is a must try. Delizioso

    Delicious Italian food (even the bread+oil+salt was excellent)! Decor is so fantastically homey & farmhousey. p.s. lunch there is a good way to beat the crowds. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Rarely do I leave a restaurant completely satisfied. Tonight was one of those few times. We shared the kale salad, burrata, risotto, and pork sausage. Also, the panacotta and apple tart for dessert.

    the chocolate sorbet is the simplest and richest dessert on the menu, made with incredibly high quality dark chocolate. you can (and should) also get it to-go at alimentari

    Love this place. Delicious food and gorgeous space. Downside: seating is awkward - lots of communal tables and tables by doors leading to kitchen etc. Staff can be iffy/unhelpful.

    This food is amazing and so fresh! Ask for a wine paring, especially if you want to try it all! The sommelier recommended a nice wine that paired pretty elegantly with a wide variety of foods.

    Outstanding. Pork blade was delicious. Don't feel you need to pay a lot for wine - even the cheaper bottles are excellent. Take somewhere there that you like. Will make an impression.

    Rustic Italian food and setting. Highly recommend. The wine cellar is the perfect cool place to sit on a summer evening.

    AMAZING Italian food, lovely atmosphere. If in season definitely get the heirloom tomato salad - divine. All pastas are great.

    Ceviche is cured in blood orange here; definitely a must-try! Hanger steak is a little underdone but nonetheless highly palatable. Chocolate cake was somewhat too sweet.

    Love the Italian home vibe. Pastas are incredible as are fish and meat courses. Wine list is impeccable.

    My favourite dress-up Italian in the city. A varied menu with something for every palate - warm comfortable place that you can really relax and enjoy scrumptious italian cuisine and a great wine list.

    Try the Spit-Roasted Short Ribs castelvetrano olives, celery, walnuts and horseradish - Doubly amazing. Enough for four people to share easily without too much fighting.

    Dunk the warm country bread in Umbrian olive oils produced exclusively for Il Buco. You’ll have no trouble finding a wine to match your meal; Il Buco’s list is one of the city’s best. -TimeOut

    My favorite spot in NoHo for lunch. The people who work here are the best and the daily pasta menu always has something mind blowing on it.

    An amazing Italian grocery store in the front, a romantic trattoria in the back – the porchetta a la Romana and octopus carpaccio are outstanding. For more, follow us on 4sq or at Read more

    Lit by lamps mostly made of farming tools, this is for the foodie in you. Ask your server about the red wines- they've got an impressive selection but don't skip out on the Kumquat Rickey either way.

    Formerly an antique shop, this charming enoteca beckons with the warmth of an Italian grandmother and fires romance. Book early and they’ll celebrate Tiffany couples with a prosecco toast.

    Il Buco’s homemade pasta was perfectly complimented by their fine wine list. Don’t hesitate to purchase the nutty green olive oil and take home, it’s worth it.

    Mediterranean dishes change every night at the buzzing antique store turned restaurant. Il Buco is a favorite of many seasoned New Yorkers.

    Food is insane good. Som guy was terrific, staff had to deal with an asshole group who disturbed the entire restaurant on 9-12-15. They made them leave and took care of everyone.

    I live a block away. I've been here 120 times, they still ask me where I'm from and if I've ever been here before. The food is good but turnaround of staff is high. Who's torturing these people!

    No wireless signal in the downstairs area! Tough if you are expecting emails. But, delicious food and wine. If I wasn't working, would have been lovely!

    I don’t like when comfort food gets too fussy. Nothing overly fancy here. The dishes are simple and fresh, just as they should be. And the rustic décor is so cozy. -Nina Garcia, Fashion Director

    White lasagna bolognese is amazing. Very rich. Go splitty splitty with a pal on that and the ricotta dumplings.

    The Velveta tempranillo by the glass us absolutely incredible. Unfiltered, buttery and smells of a nice port. Enjoy this glass and you'll not forget it.

    Described as “last meal”-worthy, it’s the perfect place to take your confessor to show your appreciation for his dexterity with a cheese cutter. Quoted from Zagat.
