“One of the best meals of our trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

My wife and I happened upon this restaurant after a day trip to Capri and we are so happy we did! The Salmon was fresh and tastefully seasond, the gnocchi was the perfect texture and service was superb. We loved it so much we decided to stay for dessert. Once finished, we were pleasantly suprised to get free samples of limoncello as a "digestivo."

“What a Lucky Find1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

We love Osteria del Buonconvento. It is on a small side street, Via B. Donnorso, very near the Villa Comunale and the Church of St. Francis, and we came upon it as we were looking for the church. The waitress was so helpful that we decided to try the restaurant and we were so pleasantly surprised with the food and service. We went back three times. The pizza and pastas were delicious, the chicken and fish delicious, and it was more like a home cooked meal than a fancy restaurant. The house wines were delicious too and our waitress made us feel so welcomed and comfortable. We would highly recommend this reataurant.

“L'Osteria del Buonconvento - an awesome find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We stumbled across this restaurant when looking for another one that we had picked from trip advisor and I have to say that we were so glad we missed the initial restaurant after having tried it later, which was still good but this was so much better. The staff are wonderful here, they have an English menu, the prices are good and they have the best pasta we tasted in Italy. We went here twice whilst in Sorrento and probably wished we had gone for a third time also. During our visits we tried four different pastas and they were all extremely good. I noticed that those who had the fish etc also really enjoyed their meals. At the end you must try the tiramisu, as I don't normally like this dessert but this was the nicest one I had ever had and would definitely order it again. Don't overlook this restaurant and it is off the normal tourist path in town down a lane way not full of pedestrian traffic.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

The food was very good, especially the pasta with aubergine. Portions were generous. The staff were helpful and friendly, and provided nice touches like complimentary welcome drinks.
