Fantastic location for a client lunch, the service was efficient and attentive. The ambiance is perfect and with you being able to have a conversation. The food was delicious. I highly recommend Buco Pizzeria.

Short rib fell apart with a fork, was perfect. Pasta was tasty but not the best I’ve had from there although still delicious. Service was outstanding.

We wandered over to Buco for a Friday night 'date night' of casual Italian. We couldn't believe how few people were dining there when we were, especially considering what a great experience we had! The decor is a nice blend of rustic & luxurious, and there is lots of natural light. Our server & the bartender (also the manager, I think) we both friendly & chatty, and we shared a few laughs with them. Our beef carpaccio was delightful, and both our pizzas were great - just the right size for 1 person and a perfect, thin crust with lots of fresh toppings. Our server recommended a wine for me, and then brought me a taster - she was able to recommend something else to my taste when I told her that I didn't like the taster. This is a great spot for an upscale-casual Italian meal - we will definitely go back!

This is a space to have drinks and socialize. Although the menu would suggest that thought and care is put into it, as it speaks to a creative Italian DNA; is is simply an afterthought to drinks when it comes to execution and service. Our order came out all at once; with starters and main courses piling all over the table, our salads competing with our starters and with our hot plates. the only thing that did not come was the one dish that had made us choose Buco (it was forgotten by our server). Our server had big attitude but little training (terrible combination) and really did not care much about us or our enjoyment of the evening. After all the orders had been piled on our table, we were quickly forgotten.
Between cold and soggy food, loud music, and the TVs with sport broadcasts beaming down from every corner; there was little room left for ambiance. Just another franchise recipe.

The food was pretty good, however, we were not at all impressed with our server. We felt like the server thought she was doing us a favour by serving us. We were there for a birthday and she seemed to care less about our attendance, and completely ruined the vibe of the entire night. We felt rushed to eat and leave as if she didn't want us there and we were holding her up. At no point did she smile or attempt to be personable with the table. Close to the end of the dinner, she argued with us about what we ordered... completely unprofessional.
This was our first time at the restaurant and I doubt that we will ever be coming back to this location as this server ruined our experience in its entirety.

Great overall experience! Our server was super helpful in answering our questions regarding the menu and suggested some very delightful items off the menu. We started with some delicious appetizers - the croquettes and arancini were my favourite. Someone else in our group had the meatballs and mussels and said that the sauce in the mussels was to die for! The gnocchi was amazing, but our rib eye came out a little overcooked on one side yet it still tasted amazing. Nothing worth the trouble of sending back to the kitchen. Another favourite was the porchetta. Our group skipped on the pizzas this time but we will be back to sample those for sure. And since it was a special occasion, they kindly served us some shots and a piece of tiramisu cake on the house, which was a nice little surprise!

Came here before going to the symphony. The complimentary parking was the reason we decided to try this, but it was an enjoyable experience on top of that. The house red wine was delicious, as was our pizza. A good destination before an event in the downtown area.

If you like Italian food, you will love Buco. The pasta is better than momma made. The noise level was a little up from the last time we ate there, but there were a number of young people eating before attending their Ariana Grande concert. So I guess it could be forgiven.

Bucco is a regular place for us to go before concerts or games. Service and food has always been good, however this past experience they messed up our reservation which was made more than a month prior, we had to wait long for service, it was busy but then Bucco should have had more staff. My drink was forgotten about, and I will give our server credit for saying it was on him. He was friendly and personable. I was served a non gluten free pizza, without the chicken requested. Our server noticed the chicken right away and went to check, but i has to note that I didn’t believe it was gluten free. When I did he had to take my whole meal away for a new one to be made, while the rest of my party ate. There is a huge difference between the gluten free and regular pizza. Then to be charged an additional $6 for a couple tiny pieces of chicken was ridiculously over priced on their end. It was a disappointing visit and I will re-evaluate if we go there again before a concert.

Food was awesome! It was a Monday night and Michael Buble concert was at Rogers Place. Don’t think they were prepared for volume of diners. Very long wait for food and drinks. Felt the staff hid from guests instead of saying they were backed up.

We would go again but not on an evening when events in area are going on.
