Il Buco Restaurant Review

: This SoHo Italian spot has launched chefs' careers and pleased a thousand taste buds and more. Owners Donna Lennard and Alberto Avalle originally opened this hole-in-the-wall (Il Buco literally means the hole in Italian) as an antique store in 1994, then decided to sell wine and food as well. They soon realized that more people were interested in buying tapas than rusty watering cans. From the original regulars who happily nibbled Italian and Spanish morsels amidst old wheelbarrows and mirrors, Il Buco's following has grown. Reservations are a must, especially on weekends, when the kitchen is open until 2 a.m. Mediterranean-inspired dishes include Dijon-encrusted lamb chops with puntarelle and slow-roasted porchetta over white polenta. Don't become too attached though---the menu changes nightly. The wine list is considerable, and dotted with unusual Italian selections.
