Went here with the wife. First of all the atmosphere is sooo nice, it's very unassuming from the outside when you look inside but they have a beautiful seating area outside around the back that looks kind of like a garden. The food is extremely well priced unlike touristy areas in other amalfi cities that are just gouging. We started... More

Superb restaurant, deceptively large - small café style as you enter then a large restaurant and finally a garden area at the back! Pasta with aubergines was the best I have ever tasted!

First day in Vico Equense. Part of our family arrived late and we arrived a bit by accident in this restaurant. First impression was nice and we got a table in the garden. However, the longer the dinner took, the more chaotic it became. One pizza never arrived and had to be remade and the loin fillets appeared to have... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere at al Buco. The table service was helpful and the food arrived in reasonable time. We weren't in a rush and they too weren't rushing to get us out. We enjoyed Arancini starters, a couple pasta dishes then 2 pizzas with drinks set us back around 40 euro.

On our first night in town, we just stopped in. We were greeted and served quite well. Carmine was our kind waiter and we did not have to wait or ask. The timing of our excellent mushroom and then our dinners were just right. We liked Carmine so much we gave him a custom wood ball point pen from my... More

We ate at the restaurant on an early Saturday evening. The atmosphere was warm, lots of children and their parents in the front section, the service fine, but the food was so-so.

We were given a warm and friendly welcome by Michel (sorry if I have got his name not quite right). The chef also came out to greet all guests and talk about the menu. I don't like fish but this was not a problem as they were happy to accommodate my tastes without any issue. The theatre of the whole... More

Our family really enjoyed our meals at Al Buco. We had the tomato and rucola salads - very fresh and tasty! Then, the fettuccine with sausage, ham, mushrooms, and capers in tomato cream sauce, and fettuccine with king prawns. We also had the fresh fish of the day. The staff was friendly and professional, and although the food service was... More
