Amazing treat.

We went for one of each of the 2 taster menus, with the recommended accompanying wine. The meal cost wasn't unreasonable €90 (9 courses) and €70 (7 courses) + €40 for the accompanying wine for the 9 course menu, and €35 for the 7 course at the time of writing. I had the "traditional" 7 course... read more

We were only in Sorrento for one day. Our cruise had a midnight departure, affording us the opportunity to have dinner in Sorrento. We wanted something creative and up-scale to compliment the good food we were having on the yacht. Il Buco was conveniently located and had good reviews, so we chose it. We arrived a little early but the... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend. Food was mostly seafood with some good pasta dishes as well. We had some good appetizers as well as local wine. The service was great and food was very tasty. Portion sizes are on the smaller side but enough. Don't pass up the dessert. Wonderful meal.

We sat outside which after venturing inside, I think is the better option as outide seems more relaxed. We had the 7 course 'Trust Me' tasting menu with matching wines wherein I asked for no fish, so my husband and I had different food which is very unusual! The food was good but a little inconsistent. The service was also... More

We stumbled across il Buco. Sadly we couldn't have a table outside as it was a Saturday night but inside was still good. What a lovely experience! The friendliest staff and an excellent menu. Yes, it's a little expensive but definitely worth every cent for the food and the attention. Would recommend!

An unexpected delight to find in the heart of Sorrento.We had food of the very highest quality served in the most modern and on trend fashion. A lovely old building and friendly attentive staff only eclipsed by the fantastic food . We chose the Trust Me menu and the chef came to our table and discussed our likes and dislikes... More

A friend recommended Il Buco. We ate here on our 8th night in Sorrento having already had some great meals at other similar standard\priced\rated places. The food here was on parr with a couple of the 5 star or Trip Advisor highly rated restaurants. All the food was lovely including the chef's tasters in between the courses. The only reasons... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local and was an incredible experience. We did the trust the chef menu with matching wines. The waiter asks your food preferences (fish vs meat etc) and then prepares food suited to you. Amazing!

After finding this restaurant on Trip advisor, we decided to go pop in. We were lucky to get a table as it was extremely busy even mid week. the food was amazing, pre-dinner cocktails prepared at your table. Highly recommend this restaurant, not only for accommodating me with my Dairy Allergy, but another guest on my table who does not... More
