After seeing good reviews on TripAdvisor we went to il Buco, we had to book and you'd really need to do so because it's always busy. The starters we had were unbelievable and the good food kept coming thru all courses. The deserts are particularly good. Each and every bit was lovely and a great wine selection too. Well worth...

Restaurant okay. Not a great restaurant as it was in the past. Food is okay, but not great. Not worth the high price. Sorry Il Bucco, do not get back to you.

There were seven of us dining outside in an area secluded by shrubs and railings. We felt like we were on a movie set! The staff was patient and helpful with a great sense of humor. They set up a small private bar next to our table to display wines to pair with our food selections. The appetizers were outstanding.... More

My husband and I ate here in August and we loved it. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was incredibly romantic. The highlight of the night was the service led by Michael. He was so professional, friendly, attentive and superbe at what he does. We felt special all night and he made me the best gin and tonic I've... More

18 October 2014 - 28th wedding anniversary. A beautiful evening and we sat outside - v. romantic. Decided to go for the Trust Us menu. The waiter talked through our preferences and delivered five courses (all fish) of superb food, the first two of which had been individually tailored based on our tastes. Wines were a perfect match and even... More

It's hard to know where to start this review as all I can think of is the delicious food and what has to be the 2 must amazing meals I've had! I have other Michelin star restaurants in the UK and to be honest it has been a hit and miss affair depending on the establishment but a can truly... More

Ate here for the 1st time 27 Oct 14 with my husband and 5 other friends. Having been lucky enough to eat in some fine michelin starred restaurants in the UK wasnt really sure what to expect here. This restaurant could teach the UK places a thing or two about food and service. Food and wine were wonderful and the... More

For the third time in the last ten years i was lucky enough to eat at Il Buco in Sorrento. The restaurant is down stairs in a quaint and romantic setting. The staff is amazingly attentive. I went there with a friend who was not really hungry. We asked if we could share some things and they said, "of course".... More

We chose the taster menu with matching wines. The food was simply superb and the staff were so accommodating and friendly. I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant. I would ask for one of the tables set back in the alcoves if you're in a romantic mood as you really did feel very special and like no-one else... More

Had a wonderful dinner with my wife @ il Buco whilst staying in Sorrento last week. Attentive service from our waiter, preparing cocktails at our table and also explained the menu and each dish carefully. Also thought the meal was good value for the quality of food and service but then I'm used to London prices!
