What a delight Il Buco is. Probably the most magical dining experience that I have ever had. The food was sensational and the service was unbeatable. The waiters saw to our every need and desire and the chefs even came out to talk to us, introduce all of the food to us and to see what we liked & disliked... More

If cost is not an issue and you're looking for a gorgeous modern gourmet experience, down a beautiful ancient alleyway in Sorrento, this is it. All the little touches are there from the first plate of half a dozen different breads "baked by chef overnight" to the final wicked little sweet extras that come with coffee. Service is impeccable and... More

We booked the restaurant based on high TA review but was quite disappointed. My husband and I both ordered the tasting menu; manager promised to make 2 diff menus for us so that we can try more diff dishes (which was really nice). However we didn't think our sets were that diff at all - it felt more like his... More

After seeing good reviews on TripAdvisor we went to il Buco, we had to book and you'd really need to do so because it's always busy. The starters we had were unbelievable and the good food kept coming thru all courses. The deserts are particularly good. Each and every bit was lovely and a great wine selection too. Well worth...

Restaurant okay. Not a great restaurant as it was in the past. Food is okay, but not great. Not worth the high price. Sorry Il Bucco, do not get back to you.

There were seven of us dining outside in an area secluded by shrubs and railings. We felt like we were on a movie set! The staff was patient and helpful with a great sense of humor. They set up a small private bar next to our table to display wines to pair with our food selections. The appetizers were outstanding.... More

My husband and I ate here in August and we loved it. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was incredibly romantic. The highlight of the night was the service led by Michael. He was so professional, friendly, attentive and superbe at what he does. We felt special all night and he made me the best gin and tonic I've... More

18 October 2014 - 28th wedding anniversary. A beautiful evening and we sat outside - v. romantic. Decided to go for the Trust Us menu. The waiter talked through our preferences and delivered five courses (all fish) of superb food, the first two of which had been individually tailored based on our tastes. Wines were a perfect match and even... More

Ate here for the 1st time 27 Oct 14 with my husband and 5 other friends. Having been lucky enough to eat in some fine michelin starred restaurants in the UK wasnt really sure what to expect here. This restaurant could teach the UK places a thing or two about food and service. Food and wine were wonderful and the... More
