Our antipasti were very good. Prosciutto on warm mozzarella buffalo. And mozzarela and ricotta cannoli on lightly pickled vegetables. The pasta was a disappointment. Not tasty. Too subtle. The lemon souffle was really superb. Service was excellent. All inall worth it.

Restaurant is nice, service is excellent... Chef Peppe came out himself and asked us personally thoughts when ordering his "I trust you" off the menu... Opted for the 8 course however 5 would have been suffice... Mixed fish with meat.... Shocked at how undercooked the risotto was... Kind of killed the rest of the meal... Lamb was definitely the best... More

A real treat, with great service and a totally flexible menu, we has an excellent meal and a first class experience. Waiters were knowledgeable and attentive and food choice was huge allowing for a mix of tasting and normal a la carte. Given its Michelin rating - it was a great choice for adults and kids.

Restaurant is in a very unique space. Although a high end restaurant, it was not stuffy, the waiters had a lot of fun with the patrons. Food was delicious and interesting, very different from anywhere else we ate in Italy.

We have just been to the restaurant this evening. Having been placed in a room with no other people, we were given a menu which was then taken away from us then given one back for the two of us. We waited over 15 minutes and was not acknowledged by any member of staff. No offers of a drink, just... More

We went there with our two sons 18 & 20. They are very adventurous eaters and went with the "trust me" menu as did my husband. This is where the chef brings out whatever he chooses. They loved every bit of it! Beautiful table side hand crafted cocktails and delicious pasta, seafood or meat dishes are all sure to delight!... More

I first visited this restaurant with my family in 2004. We have been retelling our story of the best meal in the history of our travels for over 12 years that we booked our last night in Sorrento at Il Buco with my family (8 people two families.) The service was amazing as ever, almost too good with constant refilling... More

Two of us chose the "secret" tasting menu, and we didn't always get the same. Everything was beautifully arranged on the plates in the manner of gourmet restaurants. Tastewise it was a little above average. The service was efficient, but the atmosphere was a bit pretentious
