About us

In 2011, the old warehouse that houses Il Buco was nothing but a location with a great potential. A full basement, elevator, big glass window panes opening to the street and a killer atmosphere. Originating as an import of Italian meat and wines, the potential of this little ‘cave’ quickly materialized.

Today, Il Buco has established itself as one of Copenhagen’s finest Italian eateries, specializing in long table family style dining and a heavy focus on sustainability and natural wines. Leading Danish and international chefs stir the pots in the open kitchen and our great team of waiters and wine buffs work hard to ensure our guests memorable visits with us.

Since our humble beginnings, Il Buco has expanded into the neighboring facilities and has also established one of Copenhagen’s finest wine cellars – focusing on clean, Italian wines. In Refshaleøen, we also run the seaside café and restaurant, La Banchina.
