Toronto – Italian eatery Buca will open a new location at Hwy. 7 and Jane Street in Vaughan, just north of Toronto.

With the new location, Buca aims to fuse the inspirations of its original King Street and coastal Italian Yorkville businesses, while introducing unique elements that highlight the best of both locations.

The venue will have 110 seats in the main dining area, as well as a lounge and outdoor patio for a total of 228 seats.

Executive chef Jorge Fiestas, 12-year veteran of BUCA, will head the culinary team. Assisting is senior sous chef Matthew Asturi.


The menu will feature Italian inspired classics dishes prepared with a modern twist, including Bistecca alla Firoentina, a shareable 40-ounce AAA beef porterhouse, aged for 45 days, served with caper agliata and salamoia Bolognese.

Pizzas include Calamari con Cipolle with grilled squid, fior di latte, cipollini onion, artichoke, peperoncino, parsley; Pomodoro e Tartufo, with preserved tomato, stracciatella cheese, scorzone truffle, basil and Funghi topped with mascarpone, gorgonzola, seasonal mushroom, and marjoram.

“Our team has poured their heart and soul into every aspect of this new location, from the carefully curated menu to the service and design,” said Peter Tsebelis, managing director, King Street Food Company. “We can’t wait to welcome guests and share our passion for Italian cuisine.”
