Absolutely awful experience. Made a reservation for a first date at Il Buco for this past Saturday night, given all of the wonderful reviews I saw on here. The restaurant was absolutely stifling hot- all of the diners were complaining about the heat and the hostesses' only response was, ""Oh, it must be the candles."" Absolutely no apologies or show of concern. I don't know whether the air conditioner had broken, but the temperature was absolutely uncalled for and disgusting. Despite that, we went to sit down, only to find that all of the tables were communal and absolutely uncomfortably tight. After 5 minutes of sweat pouring off my date's poor face, we got up and left. I have never seen anything that bad. Would never return or recommend this place to my worst enemy.
