Il Bucco is an outstanding restaurant and can bear comparison, if not exceed, the best in other European cities. Everything about the restaurant is top class from the courtesy and charm of the waiting staff to the exquisite food and wine coupled with the outstanding table service. Nothing is too much trouble for the team of Rosario and his colleague... More

The food is good, but not great. The price point is for great food. Service was excellent, portions a bit small, so 4 out of 5 is reasonable if you aren't on a budget. If you are on a budget, you can find comparable food (maybe not as good service) for the price.

We were given a warm and friendly welcome by Michele who looked after us for the evening. The chef also came out to greet all guests and talk about the menu. I don't like fish but this was not a problem as they were happy to accommodate my tastes without any issue or making me feel uncomfortable in any way.... More

Lovely ambience, welcoming staff with a chef who is willing to modify his menu to your taste. Fresh, high quality ingredients which sometimes lacked seasoning. Excellent wine list.

There's nothing more to say than excellent. Excellent service, excellent food, excellent drink. We went as a party if 4 friends and had the 8 course trust the chef tasting menu with wine pairing. It was a total delight and worth every penny. At the end of our meal we were able to thank the chefs in person in the... More

A very good Michelin star restaurant with great food and service. Setting was lovely too. Our table was on a quiet public walk way which was very atmospheric in the evening. A thoroughly enjoyable dinner.

Great menu for Seafood lovers, meat and chicken dishes have a little to be desired, had to send back two of the groups second courses. Great service, wine pairings available, wine by the glass around 8 euros, average item $20 to 28 euros. Small portions, but very tasty, more for the fine dinning experience. Reservations recommended.

This is obviously a very high quality restaurant with a price tag to match. If you are willing to pay the price you will be richly rewarded. The service here is exceptional. The waiters are extremely professional and knowledgeable in what they serve and this is matched with impeccable politeness and friendliness. The food is of a very high quality... More
