Cuisine:Italian. Price: $$$. Location: .

Outstanding house-cured meats and exotic pizza and pasta make Buca one of the hottest spots for contemporary Italian food in Toronto. Tucked away in an alleyway, the brick-walled restaurant transports you to a rustic town in Italy for the duration of your meal. Gutsy Executive Chef Rob Gentile is known for pushing the boundaries when it comes to his constantly-changing menu that features dishes such as duck egg pasta and pork blood pasta. Make a Reservation.
