Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria


I'll be damned if this isn't one of the cutest restaurants you've ever seen. Split into two sections, the Alimentari grocery section up front is filled with cured meats and Italian bread. Continue through the space and you'll find a dining area which is charmingly rustic with an open kitchen. The room is filled with a mix of romantic dates, business dinners, and girls' nights out. The menu is a relatively upscale version of food you would find in adorable trattorias in Italy. What they do best is meat, cheese, wine, and bread (which is all I really need in life). The pastas are simple with few ingredients, made fresh. It's a convenient neighborhood spot to graze on fried artichokes & grilled octopus with friends or even sit at the bat solo.
