We enjoyed our dinner at Il Buco so much that we went back again the following night. The setting — in a former monks' wine cellar, with the curving, low ceilings — is lovely but it was the food and service that really set this restaurant apart. I tried six dishes over the two nights and the standouts for me were the... More

WOW, we arrived with no booking at 7pm just as they were opening, we were given a table with a wonderful view of Sorrento below us. The food, ambience and staff were fabulous, very good value for money, house wine was excellent and we saw the sun set for the first time during our trip which was a sight to... More

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant near the end of our holiday. We had the best time ever, our waiter micheala (I'm not sure how to spell in in Italian, sorry!!) was so so so good. He was so professional, yet such a laugh at the same time. Food, drink and experience was worth every penny and more. If... More

We husband wanted to eat here during our stay in Sorrento. He loved every moment of the experience. Well worth a visit but can be a little pricey. We paid £208 for three courses each, champagne pre drinks and a bottle of rose. The service was good to start with and then as it got busier it started to lack

We visited as two adults and one child for a meal to celebrate our wedding anniversary during our recent holiday. The restaurant is lovely as are the staff, but it was exceedingly expensive, costing us over €300 for a meal for three. Il Buco is certainly worth a visit if you can afford not to wince at the prices. It... More

I visited this restaurant with friends on our first evening in Sorrento and had a good experience. The waiters were all very lovely, we ordered cocktails and the waiter made them in front of us at our tables. I do believe the meals were a tad pricey with starters starting from €20 and the meals being quite small for what... More

We visited Il Buco this evening and had an excellent meal with fantastic service. The food was excellent and they were very accommodating to a prepare a meal for our son. They had a fab gin menu with a wide selection. The pasta course of a tortellini lobster special was delicious. We will definitely visit again.

The menu changes season to season my husband had lamb for his main and couldn't verbalise how wonderful it was..Pepe the owner/chef when taking your order asks about your likes. Even though cheese souffle was... More

We had the 8 course trust me menu at Il Buco earlier this week as a treat during our honeymoon and it was excellent. Actually ended up being closer to 11 courses with all the small pre courses. Advice would be don't fill up on bread as there is loads to eat. The food was excellent from start to finish.... More

You should book in advance, Pepe is a master of his trade. And I have seen plenty of M star chefs, but he truly blows my mind every time. Don't fight with the wine list it's big enough to cause a road block!!! Just get onto the Maìtre and you will be matched perfectly to your food guaranteed. Fantastic in... More
