Il Buco

Il Buco in Greenwich Village is a timelessly enchanting spot that has been serving a superb Mediterranean menu for close to two decades now.

The décor is so captivating with rustic furniture, copper pots and pans and vases and jars creatively placed and hung all around.




The menu is focused on local, seasonal cooking with dishes that change on a daily basis. Every plate we tried was very good with the “Croquettas” being one of my favorites in the appetizers. I didn’t think their house made ricotta was nearly as good as their off shoot – Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria – one of my favorites.

We had a stunning cod, which was perfectly cooked – I definitely think that seafood is their strength.

I really think that Il Buco is one of New York Cities hidden gems. It may not get written about as much as it deserves but it really doesn’t need the fanfare as its food and packed tables speak of themselves.
