    Delicious, amazing, and so flavorful! I had a pasta boiled in blood sprinkled with goat cheese and it was fantastic! Spicy and delicious! The service was great although our server didn't speak English very well (spoke Italian) but was still able to communicate with us! I'd recommend!

    Best pizza in the city

    This place has amazing pizzas--the best I've tried in the city. They send out the pizzas with scissors instead of knives for cutting--genius.

    This place is phenomenal.

    This place is great; you will be pleasantly surprised! We could have dined less expensively, but we wanted to try several dishes and were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived, the maitre d greeted us and made us feel at home. Having been to Italy I can tell you this place made us feel like were were back in Rome. The watiers go out of their way to explain the menu to you in detail and offer suggestions. They are well informed and bring charm to the place. We had the pasta with duck and also the Canneloni. For appetizers we also had a salad, and cured meat platter which included salami, prosciutto. The Tiramisu matched the quality and flavor of what I experienced at a popular restaurant with the locals in Rome; Buca restaurant has a nice ambiance and is a blend of rustic and modern. The restaurant is not easy to find which makes it all the more desirable; it's down an alley, a hidden gem. Always busy you need to reserve weeks in advance if you want to dine on a weekend. This restaurant doesn't need to be on a main street to be discovered; word travels fast. Next time there we want to try the pizza and will get the canneloni again.

    Toronto spots to sample during Restaurants for Change

    All three locations of this modern Italian spot join in the Restaurants for Change festivities. The sprawling Buca on King West hosts exposed brick walls rising to factory-height ceilings and warmed by Emerson light bulbs (Buca Yorkville is more intimate, but just as gorgeous, with a truly stunning display of modern architectural lighting). Classics and rarely seen delicacies dominate the menu (think: gnocchi pomodoro cozied up to lamb’s brains and crispy pigs ears). Meanwhile, Portland Street’s Bar Buca centres on the cocktail side of things, a more casual wine and appies spot – though it does host large plates.

    Trattorias for delicious pizza in Toronto's King West

    Trattorias for delicious pizza in Toronto's King West

    This acclaimed King West trattoria attracts a trendy well-heeled crowd by serving upcale Italian fare in a uniquely industrial dining room. The menu changes with the seasons but always includes a few bianchi (white) and al pomodoro (red) pizza options. While all options are tasty, it’s the truffle-heavy Tartufo pizzas — namely the Tartufo Bianco and Pomodoro e Tartufo — that get people raving. Best of all, the pizzas arrive tableside with a pair of scissors so you can cut your own slices.
