Buca Osteria & Enoteca opened in 2009 and since then Chef Director Rob Gentile has been internationally celebrated for Buca’s locally sourced, constantly changing menu. Ingredients are seasonal and source specific where the “nose to tail” philosophy of cooking is embraced. Guests are drawn to return for the warm hospitality and artisanal fare, including famed house-cured meats, pizza, and pasta, inspired by the classic traditions of Italy with a contemporary culinary touch. Consistently rated one of Canada’s top restaurants by critics since its opening, Buca is a modern classic built on the perfect balance of old world and new.

Q What was your first impression when you arrived?

Located on the ground floor of the Four Seasons condo building, Buca adequately conveys the glitz of the posh Yorkville neighborhood, with gleaming wood floors, polished concrete walls, a sparkling open kitchen, black leather chairs, an impressive marble bar, and stainless-steel wine racks. And yet the food and wine still manage to take center stage at this sexy urban space.

Q What was the crowd like?

With well-coiffed besuited businessmen grabbing drinks and dinner (presumably before heading upstairs to their condo), Buca could very well be a set of the TV show "Suits," which happens to be filmed in Toronto.
