If there’s one food people can’t get enough of, it’s pizza. As a result, Il Buco is a bustling Italian Pizza palace right in the heart of the strip opposite Ponsonby Central which boasts up to 30 different varieties of pizza. These flavourful concoctions have been tried and tested over time to get the right seasonings bouncing off one another as soon as they hit the lips.

The pizza makers at Il Buco aren’t skimpy on toppings either. Most of the time the dough is blanketed in meaty fusions up to an inch thick. But don’t worry, the cheese is layered throughout and is most definitely not absent. The use of free range venison salami and Italian sausage spice up favourites such as the diavola and patate e salsiccia.

Just like the best pizza parlours, Il Buco allows patrons to order by the slice which is perfect for those on the run or women of petit nature who don’t feel like carrying their six leftover slices home in a bag. We would recommend sampling at least three different varieties because it really does give you a chance to hone your palette towards its true desire.

If you’re hungry and you happen to be on Ponsonby Road, just look for the colours of Italy.
