We dined at Il Buco as part of our honeymoon in Sorrento and it was, without doubt, the best meal of our trip. Our waiter, Mickel, was exceptional - so knowledgeable and clearly passionate about his job. He definitely added to our overall experience and our meal would not have been the same without him. My husband went for the... More

Great gourmet food and service. The ambiance is so pretty and the history of the building. Service was excellent. Order the table side drinks. If you are a gourmet food fan you will love this place.

We will always remember our trip to Il Buco. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. We opted for the 5 course chef's choice special with wine pairing. Our waiter ensured that we would be getting food we were happy with - we had a choice between meat and fish and then listed things we... More

We visited il buco whilst on holiday in Sorrento, and the food was truly excellent. We went for lunch there, and to be honest we thought it would be good but it exceeded our expectations - and I'd have happily paid double what the bill amounted to at the end. The service was exceptional, we asked our waiter to choose... More

We didn't have a reservation but got a table without any problem. The table was not the nicest but fair enough for a walk in in a " cosidered" Michelin Star awarded restaurant. The welcoming for aperitiv (cocktails mixed tableside,from a very good and friendly awsome bartender)+ amouse geule was very good. We chose a six course menu which was... More

Excellent restaurant in a tiny alleyway with an excellent outdoor area to dine. Very unique and deserving of its Michelin star and surprisingly quite affordable. Well worth booking and experiencing the delicious food

Lovely restaurant with great waiters who provided great service. Portions fairly small for the price but the quality was brilliant. Definitely worth trying for one night in Sorrento!

A local friend recommended this restaurant to my husband and I (both foodies) for dinner. We could not have had a finer meal. The restaurant boasts a large selection of high-end gins and the bar man will make you a gin and tonic, complete with herbal garnishes, right at your table. My husband said it was the best GT he's...

As a lovers of good food we wanted to have a blow out evening whilst on vacation in Sorrento, and after some research we settled on Il Buco based on good reviews and the fact it has a Michelin star. The restaurant promptly responded to my reservation request and remained in contact when needed. When we arrived at the restaurant... More

This was our "no holds barred" dinner night, with 8 course "I Trust You" chef's menu with wine pairings. Only regret--not choosing the 5 course version. Just too much great food, especially if you haven't fully gotten over jet lag. Peppi and staff (Michaela!) the perfect hosts on a hot summer evening.
