There's not too many good Italian restaurants in Barrie, and as someone with Italian blood I'm really picky, but Il Buco have really good food, wines and the service is great.

Our company Christmas party received top-notch service from Russell. We were a party of 12 and we all enjoyed our meals very much. Russell's wine recommendations were spot on. All and all a great experience.

The entrance is very unusual as you have to walk upstairs past a law firm to get into the restaurant! When we finally walked in we thought we were at the back of the restaurant as we had to search for the... More

Very warm inviting staff. Ambiance and atmosphere very warm and relaxing. Menu was perfect and had a great selection for a fixed price 3 course meal.
