“not a good restaurant”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

My boyfriend and I went there because the restaurant we wanted to go to was closed. What can I say? like in most touristic places, restaurants don't have good food, especially for Italians who can not be easily fooled like many foreigners. This osteria was very disappointing, food was really poor. It's better to choose another place to have lunch.

“Great Pasta”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Very beautiful restaurant. We were a group of four, but young, so we weren't seated very comfortably. Basically, we had a push surrounding us, dripping around/on us, and less sun. Still, the waiter seemed very attentive and service was quick. My friends were very happy with their seafood pasta, and I was very pleased with my Sorrentine Gnocchi. Overall a very delicious meal.

“Excellent Meal”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We went for dinner at "Osteria del Buonconvento". We were seated outside (only few tables are available in the front of the restaurant). The waiter served us a free starter (two bruschettas with tomatoes). Then, my wife and I ordered two different kinds of seafood pasta and they were both served on shell plates. The pasta was "al dente" and the "pachino" (campari) tomatoes so juicy.
As second course I ordered a seafood mix and it was absolutely outstanding. The meal was paired with a "Falanghina del Sannio" (white) wine. As final course we order a "trio" to share and we really enjoyed the three small desserts served on a nice square plate. Limoncello and espresso beautifully concluded the dinner. Overall our dining experience was really good and I strongly recommend this restaurant.

“Really great deal in a great city”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

All right, so I was personally blown away from Sorrento and the near Amalfi Coast - and Buonconvento just made it even more excellent and more perfect in the end of the day. We had dinner here, it is not situated on the main, busy streets of Sorrento. I always prefer the silent and hidden places.

We sat down and at once received some mini cocktail - absolutely complimentary. Ordered a cheese plate for appetizer, a bottle of their house wine; and for main course a grilled chicken dish, really well spiced and a spagetthi with ham and mushroom. Oh and for the appetizer we got complimentary bruschettas too.

The waiters were really polite, and we didn't have to chase them, they always asked if everything was good. They even helped us to create our own spagetthi - because they didn't have the one on the menu we wanted.

So if you are in Sorrento, it is really worth a shot. And it wasn't the most expensive adventure either ;)

“Absolutely gorgeous food at a very reasonable price !”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

This is a find indeed, the seafood pasta - beautiful , lovely restaurant with history. Came here several times during our visit .Superbly run by a tallish chap with glasses (sorry we didnt ask his name, very efficient) .. In fact on 1 occasion he wasn't there, we did feel the meal and service was not the usual standard! But certainly would return if we were in the area
