It was beautiful food and if you like being very fussed over and having exquisite culinary delights this is by far the place for you. It is very romantic if you book a little platform outside and the staff cater for your every whim. A tiny bit too over the top for us but cannot fault the beautiful food, wine... More

We had a wonderful meal in Il Buco - having just stumbled upon the restaurant we proceeded to spend a lovely evening there. The food was very interesting and of a very high standard - the chef/owner took the time to chat and explain the dishes including his very innovative special dishes and recommended superb local wines to accompany our...

We had the taster meal! Many courses, each one explained and each full of flavour! Lovely welcoming staff. This is a real dining experience. Yes it is expensive, but it is worth it. This is fine dining at its best . Lovely atmosphere and you have the table for the evening.

This was the 2nd time we have eaten here and will be back again. The staff remembered us from our visit a year earlier which was very impressive. Both times we had the 7 course tasting menu with accompanying wine and cannot fault either. It is expensive, but I think worth every penny. The staff make you feel very welcome... More

We had booked this restaurant a couple of months in advance to be sure of a reservation on a particular night. We had read all the great reviews and heard from people how lovely it was. Being fans of tasting menus we decided to go for the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing. Each dish was beautiful even the... More

Had a really enjoyable evening at IL Buco recently.....the restaurant was recommended by Tamara of Sorrento Food Tours (highly recommend this tour) and when she found out we had subsequently booked the restaurant, we were looked after like VIP guests. The restaurant is very deserving of its Michelin star....from start to end, we were impressed with the quality and presentation... More

A very elegant dining room in the cave. Our chateaubriand was rather too rare for our taste and it was huge! Full marks for style and presentation
