My husband and I went here for supper tonight - our first dinner date in over 5 months since the birth of our daughter. It was an excellent choice of restaurants! From the quiet atmosphere to the beautiful view we were comfortable as soon as we walked in. They brought us fresh baked bread with butter and a roasted pepper... More

The food, patio and service were amazing. While it was a promotion for the restaurant the food was amazing from the appetizer to the final dessert. We all ordered something different and all loved what we had. Great Italian food worth the visit! Make reservations as it is busy!

When I first tried 11 Buco we chose to sit outside on the terrace facing the lake. It was a great view and the service and food were excellent.

It is by far our favourite restaurant in Barrie, and I don't remember the last time we chose to go somewhere else.

One of my favourite restaurants in Barrie. Food is absolutely amazing. Although we try and have something different everytime we have dinner, the roasted garlic appetizer is one thing we always repeat. It is simply AMAZING. The food is fantastic, as is the location and ambiance. Summer months are my favourite time to visit as the back patio overlooking the... More

From the moment we entered the restaurant we were swept away by the delicious aroma of exquisite food. From the appetizets to the main meal to desserts the selections were abundant and the palate not to be disappointed. Very quickly this has become my restaurant of choice for a special evening out.

Lovely restaurant, with beautiful views of the lake. Food is delicious and well presented. Chicken parmesan was beautifully made. The atmosphere is relaxing and the decor is very chic . The staff are very pleasant and accommodating too.
