We have been many times but recent visit was 'over the top' wonderful. 5 star food, great view of lake at window seat, excellent waiter and lovely atmosphere. Highly, highly recommend the garlic appetizer. One of the best things that we have ever tried...anywhere! Prices are reasonable, servings are more than adequate and location can't be beat. If in Barrie, this gem is worth experiencing.

Excellent food and great customer service.
Really nice atmosphere with a great view of the lake. The wine selection is super and they always make a lovely sharing platter with grilled marinated veggies, cheeses and olives.

We've been here twice in the last year and each was a fantastic dining experience. Staff is very professional, restaurant is a bit quirky for a fine dining place but still pleasurable in terms of ambiance, and the food, most importantly, has always been outstanding. All 4 dishes we've tried have been as close to perfect as I could imagine. One of the best in the city of Barrie.

When I read previous reviews stating " extremely expensive" I would disagree. The prices are the same in a classy restaurant; If one is used to family run restaurants only, the prices will be cheaper. The service and the ambiance was excellent at Il Buco. The food was good but average. The food could have been hotter in temperature and less olive oil used because I had an oily coating on the roof of my mouth.

Our food was quite inedible and extremely expensive. We went for the daily specials, expecting something fresh and popular, instead we were given food that tasted quite bland and processed/frozen. Spaghetti was bad, and Sausage was just okay. Nobody around the table liked their food. Price to quality (and quantity) ratio is the most disappointing part.
