Reservations at Bucato - is there a secret phone number?

Their policy is same day reservations only, which are taken over the phone starting at 9:30 am. Yet no one seems to actually be answering the phones as calls just go to voicemail. I'm finding the idea and process very annoying. If I get the reservation I'll have to cancel my reservation at another restaurant that allows advance reservations, which seems unfair to that restaurant.

    They just called and I got my reservation. I'm really looking forward to it!

      They're new. Let the hoopla die down a bit and that policy will change. I was all set to make a reservation for a birthday dinner and that same day reservation "policy" killed that idea.
