The Zagat Review
“Marvelous” “cucina rustica” pairs with a “well-crafted” wine list in “intimate farmhouse-inspired” surrounds that’ll “transport” you to a “Tuscan home” at this NoHo Med-Italian; if it gets “loud” , the downstairs wine cellar is a “beautiful” alternative, though it’s “not cheap” no matter where you sit.

Once you enter this New York staple you feel comfortable and well treated from drink to dessert. The menu was filled with a delicious variety of appetizers and entrees, plus the wine. I had one of the best hangar steaks of my life, which barely outdid the combination of appetizers our table picked. Grilled Octopus, ricotta on buckwheat, and kale salad were among some of the best cooked and well stated that I've had. I would highly recommend.

I wanted to like this place more than and I did, so maybe our expectations were just too high. The limited large plate menu changes, so you need to take a leap of faith and trust something calls for you. Prices are steep and plates are small, making it more challenging to share on a budget. I get it, high-end dining. We ordered bread (served cold with dreamy olive oil) and split one pasta and meat dish between two people. Pasta was underwhelming, but lamb was near perfection. It was definitely enough food, and some of it, very good, but we still left wondering if the bill really matched our experience. This place is probably best if money is truly no issue because it’ll be less disheartening when some dishes don’t meet high standards. You can always try again next time, right? As for ambiance, il Buco delivers. It’s traditional and cozy. But tables near the front bar have to withstand constant door traffic, so make sure to position yourself passed the hostess.
