Wonderful food and service

We last ate at Il Buco several years ago and it was great to find that it was still a wonderful place to experience fine dining. We were a party of 7 and with very different tastes but Il Buco provided great food for us all. One of our group can only eat simple food and Il Buco made some... read more

Overpriced for what you get. Don't get me wrong, the food was good, it just wasn't great. My wife and I had the chefs tasting menu with wine pairings. Most of the courses were good, some were fantastic, some were subpar. The wine pairings were spot on and an excellent taste of the local wines. We have been to many... More

We were recommended Il Buco as we appreciate fine dining and good food, however we were quite disappointed. The tables outside were basically in an alley with lots of greenery (and therefore moquitos), so we asked to move inside. The staff weere very accommodating with this. We asked for the chef's tasting menu but unfortunately the waiter didn't check our... More

Nice restaurant in a quiet street. The service was very friendly, attention to detail from the staff. The food was delicious even though our medium-rare Chateaubriand was pretty much raw.

Overall this was the best meal I had in Sorrento. We went there 2 different nights. Once dining outside and once indoors in the main restaurant. The service was excellent-waitors were pleasant, welcoming and knowledgeable. A lot of restaurants won't serve the tasting menu unless the whole party orders it, but there was no problem with this at Il Buco.... More

Service, mood, food are good. Little expensive. But worth to pay. White wine and cheese were good. 와인향이 참 좋아요. 근데 한잔에 7유로 비싼편이예용. 첨에 들마자 에피타이저 공짜로 주니까 뭐 전반적으로 맛났네용

We were visiting Sorrento with a large group of friends (11 of us with kids). Il Buco accommodated us and the children. We had the large tasting menu with wine pairings. The meal was fantastic and the wine pairings were perfect. The staff was welcoming and accommodating. Their was no question in our minds that they wanted us to enjoy... More

The dining experience at Il Buco started with expertly prepared cocktails. The food and service and ambiance were all excellent. The meal was beautifully presented and delicious. We shared an appetizer of mixed local vegetables and then shared Chateaubriand. I like mine rare and my friend prefers it well-done. Il Buco accommodated both of our preferences beautifully. There is a... More
