Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria

I love this casual, rustic version of Il Buco.  I was in the neighborhood and had a craving Italian food, so decided to pop in for a quick lunch at the bar.

The soft pillowy Gnocchi have slighty crispy outer layer, which gave them amazing texture.

A scoop of Salted Caramel Gelato completes the meal.

Verdict: AA+.  Love this casual eatery! The freshness and the quality of the ingredients really shine through on each dish.
