It's a very lovely room but almost empty for a Thursday lunch. The pizza was very tasty but the pastas were very salty - and I love salty food. The Buca chain might have changed their food - I was at the King Street location recently and the food was also very salty which I've never noticed that in the past.
Awesome place for a fun dinner with great wine and food options. Staff was amazing!
Fantastic service! Thanks very much! Have a great week.
So over priced Staff was very nice though which makes sense as you are tipping $40 on a bottle of wine that probably costs $40. You are paying for exclusivity which is to be expected.
Love this place, they have nailed it. We have been to many restaurants in the city and struggle with, quality, service, cleanliness, atmosphere, and have decided that we will be cooking at home and doing take out only for emergencies. The standard of restaurants in Toronto are abysmal. I have to say Buca is one of the two restaurants we love in Toronto that have nailed it in terms of everything! The other one we love is Jacobs & Co. steakhouse.
Buca Yorkville is a top choice for us. We always enjoy the experience - from the food to the service, everything is consistently above our expectations. Also, do yourself a favour and try the Burrata pizza at least once. You won't regret it.
Absolutely wonderful from start to finish.
Delicious food and excellent service, highly recommend!
Always great food/service, their pizza is probably my fave in Toronto (for thin crusted, at least). Efficient and friendly staff all around!
Only drawbacks are..
...the noise factor. Tables in very close proximity to eachother and almost no sound deading materials on the walls/ceilings means that it is always intrusively loud when dining here..especially when packed (and it often is)
.....Wine list. Somewhat limited selection of wines, if you aren’t a fan of Italian wines..be prepared to scramble a bit.
The “by the glass” wine prices are simply outrageous given the quality of the wines available...even when accounting for the Yorkville location.
Lovely contemporary-classic menu. Italian Village style dishes elevated to a superb degree. Pemium fish & octopus. Best menu at Four Seasons.
Never disappointed with the food, service, attention to detail at this restaurant. Always a treat to come here.
Pricey but unique flavors and delicious pizzas.
It was a most enjoyable dining experience celebrating a friend' birthday--so much so, I plan to celebrate my birthday there in early June.
Buca was good but if you're just looking for pasta or pizza - lots of other fabulous Italian restaurants for less money.
If you’re 1 or 2, go sit in front of the kitchen and watch the chefs working...amazing. Oh and the food was amazing.
Simply incredible, food, service and wine, well done Team Buca!
Great meal! Very good service and excellent food. Very busy for a Wednesday.
Great presentation of food and very tasteful. Wines are rather overpriced.
Hard to not spend $250.00 per person
Chef Mathew served up some of the best Italian I've had in the city.
My husband and I enjoyed every bit of our evening at Buca. The service was top notch and the food was even better. Can't wait to go again.
I was there for my Birthday and really enjoyed everything
The only problem is the lack of WiFi. It is important for foreigners needing it when they enter in a shop or restaurant and spend time there
Not children friendly place but the service was good.
Great service, ambiance and food
We had a great family dinner at BUCA before heading to a show. We were having a great time and hadn’t noticed that our mains were taking a bit longer than normal to get to us, but our server brought us some complimentary oysters to apologize for the inconvenience. And the Nodini was so good as well ... had to get an extra order of that for our table!
The service was awesome, the waiter was very experienced and efficient. Offered his honest opinions about the dishes which helped us decide what to eat. Overall it was a wonderful experience.
Waiter was weirdly creepy and on auto pilot. He asked us if we had allergies three times
I was so looking forward to eating here, and left disappointed. We ordered the salad, a pasta, and a pizza to share. The salad sounded exotic, but in reality, it was a bowl of leaves (tasty enough), but for 19$, I would think there would be a bigger quantity; for 2 people to share, we each had maybe 3 bites of leaves. The pasta was similar; while tasty, it was so small, I was disappointed. The pizza was delicious. I would not return. If I want to splurge on pasta, I will go elsewhere.
I was there for lunch. It’s so good here! You should not hesitate. High recommend. We ordered and shared 4 dishes. We were full and soo satisfied.
Pizza and Branzino raw were outstanding. Listening to the Italian Radio in the already noisy restaurant was not nearly compensated by the quite outstanding service.
It was amazing!! Celebrated my husbands birthday and the service and food was on point! They also gave us fresh pasta as a gift for my husband! I was Blown away! Thank you for everything! Will definitely recommend this place and will be back!
The menu offers some great options that are different and unique. However, be prepared to pay high prices for a very small portion. Also, they will accommodate allergies, BUT, not so much preferences. Chef stands by his menu and is not willing to compromise. Also don’t expect to take any food away without it because served to you first. The make or break experience for this Yorkville restaurant was the servers, we had two, and both were phenomenal!
Birthday - they looked after us well
Very good food. Service was 11/10.
Got a fresh pasta kit to take home - from the chef, for a birthday in our group.
Food was really really good and quite unique compared to my prior experiences (all over the world) - excellent way to discover new flavours.
Excellent, great food, superb service, great wine selection.
The oyster was fishy and not fresh tasting, the server was not very accommodating. The food was quite underwhelming for the price and reputation of the restaurant.
We had an amazing brunch at Buca Yorkville. The food is always superb each time we dine there. It was our wedding anniversary and at the end of our meal, the manager came over to wish us a Happy Anniversary and provided us with Un Piccolo Pensiero box (which contained fresh pasta and its accompanying ingredients to make our favourite pasta dish (Pasta Cacio e Pepe). What a beautiful pensiero - it was so special for us and we thank the manager and staff for always providing such a perfect dining experience. Graze Mille !
Amazing service, food was above average. Would definitely recommend for dates.
Wife 50th birthday and what a nice gift when we left to prepare some pasta at home - love coming here to dine
Fantastic waiter and food wow. Best gluten free pasta so far anywhere.
Good food. Professional service and well organized. It’s location go to four seasons for a drink after or before. But you pay for it but who cares.
