I was very fortunate to be admitted without a reservation. They gave us a table with a spectacular view. I opted for the surprise 5 dishes. I had 3 so far and had to review right away as they were so good.see photos. It is pricey, but what the heck, it's my birthday!!!!

We had a wonderful meal at Il Buco. Despite not having a reservation we were seated straight away at a table outside under the arches with a lovely view of the sea. Incredibly atmospheric, the perfect setting for the wonderful food. The service was flawless and the food was delicious. Very fresh and inventive. We had a brilliant time, we... More

So good that we asked "cheekily" to have it again and they did... More

Being spoilt for choice of wonderful restaurants in Sorrento, we nearly didn't try il buco due to the cost, however we are really glad we did. We hadn't booked a table but that wasn't... More

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
