Ok 5 stars doesn't even begin I would give it 5 + stars I went with my family tonight to celebrate and when we got there the server that greeted us was very friendly. Then we started looking at the menu great selection. the appetizer was delicious and we all got some pasta that was WAY TO GOOD TO SHARE!! we drank the wine our waiter suggested WOW really we let the waiter know that we really enjoyed our meal and please let the chef know as well. The Fettuccine Tartufate YUMMY. Also when we complimented the chef he gave us a complimentary dessert wine. In conclusion AMAZING !!! I think everyone should go there also it's not too noisy just in case you are looking for a great first date or a quite family dinner.Thanks Il Buco Ristorante you made our night really special.

Il Buco's rustic Italian authenticity will impress anyone from the Jersey Shore, yes, even them. Their menu is peppered with home favorites, such as pumpkin-filled ravioli, thin-crusted Neapolitan pizzas, and osso buco. Don't forget their extensive wine list, too.

This is hands down my favorite, local restaurant in LA. The food is spectacular and shows tremendous inspiration from the chefs. The menu is creative but the specials often have you miss out on them because they are so great as well. The gnocchi is absolutely tremendous.
I've been here numerous times with friends, family and even our little one (his first was at 6 weeks old; he's now 2 and LOVES the gnocchi in truffle sauce).
As far as neighborhood Italian goes, you can't beat it.

I've even had the luxury of living in Rome, Italy when I was growing up and going to the best restaurants with my folks..and this place is the best Italian food i've ever had. The owner is always extremely personable and gracious. I love taking my girlfriend here for a romantic evening. Try the Lasagna Della Nona or their pumpkin Ravioli...Pizza is incredible too!!!!

At one time, I used to enjoy going to this place, but I won't be going back again. It's an Italian restaurant but nobody who works there is Italian. I get a sense the staff lack proper training, like maybe the owner is too busy with his other restaurants. Too many times I've gone here and sent food back. The time before last I ordered chicken and was served a charred, overcooked piece of meat. Last night I ordered a salad with a calamari steak and the calamari tasted like it had been cooked on a dirty grill. It tasted like old charred grease. Someone came around and asked how my meal was. I told them the calamari wasn't right. He said, ""Okay, I'll go check with the cook,"" but that was the last I saw of him. My waiter was friendly but unpolished. When it was time for desert, he just came over and tossed desert menus at us and walked away, never asking if we wanted desert or not -- we didn't. Anyhow, I can't go back there again and pay good money for terrible food and lousy service. This restaurant is going downhill. The owner has several successful restaurants in Beverly Hills, and it's clear he is just standing back and collecting a check on this one.

I went to Il Buco for the first time with my parents recently. We were seated promptly and placed our orders within a few minutes, so initially I would have ranked the service at average or above. After enjoying some of their seasoned bread and a glass of delicious Prosecco, I was eager to experience what else this simple, casual establishment had to offer cuisine-wise. My enthusiasm would dissipate with time. LOTS of time. Ninety minutes to be exact before our food arrived (apparently they were harvesting the semolina to make our pasta dishes?). Our server also neglected to apologize or even ask us if we wanted our drinks refreshed. Upon the eventual arrival of my food, I discovered they'd used the wrong kind of pasta in my pesto (The menu promised lasagnette, which is hard to find so I was excited. What did I get but run of the mill linguini.). The food was good enough I am open to going back but I'll obviously block out a whole evening.

It's been a long time (more than a year) since I've eaten here, but it still sticks out in my mind as one of the better restaurants I've ever been to. Good food, good wine selection. The decor could use a little boost, but hey, I'll take a place with better food and mediocre decor any day over one that looks nicer with worse food.

I went to this place with a friend of mine, and after the meal here.....I thought I was in love with him. I'm kidding...anyway..the food is so fresh, and authentic. The servers there are very well informed with the wine lists, and listened to what I was wanting, and came out with a perfect wine with our meal. The kicker though was the gnocchi with the truffle sauce....if you don't like truffles...then don't order this dish....but if you do, then "" OH, my GOODNESS""...every bit was like biting into a piece of flavorful heaven. The pasta is obviously so fresh here, that I wanted to go back there, and kiss the chef....The service here is accomodating to everyone, and I always have a great experience here...can't wait to go back.

I went there for lunch and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. I had insalata verde, pappardelle, and apple pie with a glass of wine. I varied a little bit from the menu and they had no problem accomodating my requests. The service was very good.
