"All of their sauces are gluten free. It was so nice, as always, to be able to go to an Italian restaurant and enjoy “normal” food with everyone else with limited alterations." - GlutenFreeEdmonton
"We had a beautiful evening on the patio. The server was warm and attentive. We appreciated not being rushed at all. The sangria was delicious, the pasta superb. I would recommend the mushroom ravioli in a sambuca-spiked sauce. Because the patio is at the side of the building, you get to watch the interesting streetscape without being subjected to exhaust. Reservations accepted till 6 pm." - ScoutAbout
"Went for a nice dinner date here and it was a surprise for me. I have walked by this place a hundred times and never gone in. I am glad that this was the surprise dinner location! The service was awesome, had a really smiley server! The food was good; the sauce for my Pickerel was very tasty. I loved how the restaurant looked on the inside as well. It was very warm with lots of light. I recommend this place for a date or a family dinner for sure!" - Carol
"Today, went to Buccacinos for Sunday brunch with a group of neighbor friends. The brunch selection was 'just right', with nice breakfast/lunch choices. The mussels were fabulous! It's a great option for brunch, and a buffet that doesn't break the bank at $14.00!" - Jenny
"Great restaurant. The calamari is always stellar and makes the trip in worthwhile each visit. The outdoor patio is wonderful and the staff are super friendly and efficient." - Brad
On a home catering:
"The staff were prompt, polite, professional and real sweethearts. The food far exceeded expectations every single bite was undeniably something special. Elliot the chef, masterfully prepared and presented a delightful meal that was a combination of fresh ingredients and an amazing bouquet of flavour. We had a top notch 5 star restaurant experience in the comfort of our own home. The exceptional staff were suddenly challenged with adapting to the schedule of a couple of guests that arrived late or had to briefly leave for a short time during the meal. The attention to detail was so brilliantly orchestrated that the evening was flawless and superb, the potential disruption was professionally handled. We could not be happier with this service. Our guests raved about the food. The wonderful staff left our kitchen with the dishwasher humming and the leftovers neatly stored in our fridge. Somehow, they made it all look effortless. Being so thoroughly served has left my husband and I feeling so content. Such value added leaves us wanting all of our special celebrations catered by this staff again. Thank you Elliot, Melissa and Andrea for such an awesome evening."

"Three women walking around the village, decided we needed food. It was Tuesday, & Buccacino's had a pasta special, so we thought we'd try it. It was around 1 PM, & it was not too busy. Friends had the Gambieri di Alberto (Shrimp, pineapple, curry), while I had the Cannelloni Florentine. Both were good, but all 3 agreed mine was best! Glasses of wine were reasonably priced. Food came with warm buns - delicious. Our server was very good - took time to answer our many questions, & we never went without water, coffee, etc. For 9.95, these specials are a real bargain- very tasty, with good service. I would go back."
"If you want authentic Italian food - then you need to try Buccacino's. We sat on the patio and felt like we were on a little holiday. Service was excellent. Menu was well priced. The dishes were so flavorful that I ate more than I wanted to. I also hear they have a brunch buffet on Sunday's that my family and I will have to check out."
"I've been to this restaurant two times and both times had great meals. I decided to have them cater my anniversary party with a selection of skewers , tortellini and salmon wraps. Well the food was a hit! Thanks so much for making my guests come back for seconds and thirds!"
"Had a wonderful evening out, enjoying the outdoor patio, great music and fantastic food. From the pasta dishes to steak, all the food was exceptionally tasty."
"Just so you know...Buccacino's is my favourite restaurant in the city because the prices are reasonable, it is always spotless, the service is professional yet relaxed and never insincere, the atmosphere is not too stuffy not too casual, the food is always great, fabulous menu options...I could go on and on...I have eaten there more times than I could count and I have never had a meal that was anything less than outstanding in every aspect."
"In the bustling Osborne Village area of Winnipeg sits a little Italian restaurant called Buccacino's. We sat on their patio for Canada Day and ate french fries and bruschetta. The food was great and the service was exceptional! Our cocktails came really quick, and our waitress was very warm and funny. I have also visited Buccacino's with my co-workers at lunchtime, and the pasta and pizza options are delicious and filling. Buccacino's is a good option for anyone hanging out in Osborne Village, hungry for Italian food."

"Everything was excellent, and we received many compliments on the food....one thing I didn't mention was that you have a fantastic website - full menu with prices and descriptions, and full catering information. This made it much easier to decide what we were going to do, and was a major factor in our choosing Buccacino's. Large and varied menu, very nice decor and friendly, efficient service."
"We enjoy the Sunday buffet above all, but staff are always wonderful. Because I live in the village, Buccacino's is very convenient."
"I wanted to provide you with some feedback on our dining experience Sunday morning. It was the first time that we had come to your Sunday Brunch and we loved it! So many choices and everything was delicious! Thanks again "

"I would just like to write you a compliment on the delicious dinner we ate at your restaurant tonight (Aug 4, 2012). We were there later in the evening, about 8:30pm. Our server was friendly and nice and refilled our drinks at the right time. We ordered the gnocchi appetizer which was very delicious. We scooped up every last bite. The fresh bread was also amazing. Normally I don't like a crunchy crust on bread, but this bread had such a thin crust and the inside was so soft, it was excellent. Our main dishes were chicken marsala and gamieri caliente, both of which we enjoyed. Unfortunately we were so full on the gnocchi and bread that we ended up having to take home most of the meal. I'm definitely looking forward to eating it again for leftovers. I just wanted to let you know that we enjoyed our experience. It seems the only time customers make a comment is when they're unhappy, so I just thought I would take the time to give you something positive. I will definitely order that gnocchi appetizer again."
