I am Italian, I know what I'm talking about. If you want to feel real Italian tastes, come here. But don't expect the standard fake-italian-tastes you can find in many fake-italian restaurants around here. In Italy we don't use spices, because spices COVER the original taste of the food. Without spices and fake sauces and artificial flavouring, food will probably... More

Five of us went for a birthday celebration. I ordered a pasta dish and found a wire in my food. We called the manageress / owner over and her reaction was, after looking at the wire, was that it came from a wire brush used to clean the vegetables. At no time was there an apology or offer to replace... More

It was our second time and one again this restaurant did not disappoint. The manageress is friendly and efficient and it looks as if she runs the place alone. The waiters are very good but could come across as being unfriendly. We had the best ox liver ever, have need had it this soft and tasty. I had the Tagliatelle... More

We enjoyed dinner tonight with friends at Er Buco. The owner was very attentive, and the restaurant was full of mostly regulars. At our table we ordered canneloni, saltimbuca, lamb shank and sirloin with pepper sauce. The food was nice, and the servers were fantastic from the garlic foccacia appetizer through the salad and main course, all the way to... More

As we entered the smell put us off. Very cold inside they need to invest in some heating equipment. Poor service from a very unhappy looking waiter .Food was also very bland.

We have been to Er Buco many many times and every time you have delicious food regardless of what you order and the service is great. What a pleasure to witness this level of consistency over 10 years we have been to this restaurant, regardless of day of week. Highly recommended for authentic Italian cuisine.
