Has anyone been to this place? Is it worth a visit? I looks really charming but the menu doesn't stand out and the wine selections seem just ok.

  1. I've never had a bad meal at Il Buco! The baby artichoke appetizer is wonderful as are the pastas and veal dishes. Great specials as well. I love having this place in my neighborhood...

      Is it a low key, casual place? Can you eat at the bar?

    2. Had pumkin/sage rav's with a bottle of Gavi here - tuscan soup was great too - bistro style, very low key and pleasant

      1. Low key, classy but casual... I really like their pizzas.

        1. shhh. . . i live in the neighborhood and go to il buco at least once a week. really solid, tasty italian. the owners are the same as drago, il pastaio and piccolo paradiso. very casual and friendly.

          1. went to il buco for the first time last night. first off the atmosphere is totally charming. it's intimate, quiet and the staff are very friendly. prices are reasonable. i had a special, linguini arabiata with fresh crab meat and a hawaiian prawn. it was awesome. my husband opted for a new york pizza. probably the best pizza i've tasted in los angeles. (i'm a new jersey pizza snob). i will definitely be back!
