Found this restaurant by chance as parked in public car park next to it looking for somewhere to eat en route from Knaresborough back to Leeds. Slightly claustrophobic feel about it being below ground with no windows. Air conditioning a bit fierce so felt cold and draughty where I was sitting.

Popped out for a mid week meal and thought we would try Il Buco given the good reviews, lovely evening in a nice calm relaxed atmosphere with very attentive staff and lovely food, a very nice little hidden gem.

What a superb secret little place this is, hidden away in the corner of a courtyard, down some stairs into a basement room.

Lovely Italian Restaurant , friendly welcome, lovely food and atmosphere. Really enjoyed our evening out. Difficult to find if you don't know the town but locals will point you in the right direction. Busy for a Tuesday evening.

I booked in at Il Buco with my mum and dad on a Saturday night after being told by several different people that it was worth visiting. Our usual Italian is buon apps however this exceeded their standard. The food at Il Buco was outstanding, the service was even better. Very friendly and lovely family run Italian with a nice...

Bruschetta was amazing. Pizzas were edible but not very enjoyable. Very soggy and it says they use mozzarella on the pizzas but it definitely wasn't.

Never in my life have I seen a pizza which was orange in colour. I thought It was almost impossible to make a bad pizza but oh boy how wrong was I.. Staff were pleasant but unfortunately that isn't enough to make up for such a hideous pizza.

down to a 'cellar style' bar, ll Buco has a nice range of food and is a good place to eat. The smaller size works with a 'small bar' but it gets too busy sometimes.
