    We were disappointed with the food. The pasta course was delicious but the rest was unexceptional and very costly. We felt the first two courses had elements that did not really work together e.g ceviche with tomatoes and burrata, followed by prawns with some sort of bean. The helpings were very small. lWe had the "Trust me" menu and based on our experience we would not recommend to friends.

    Great food in a very fancy and unique place in a nice little street of Sorrento. Super fresh fish and spectacular pasta. I will spend a bit for time explaining the plates and being a bit more with the client but it’s still a must in Sorrento for quality of food and place to eat.

    After dining at various Michelin star restaurants in Sorrento, this was by far the best! Great service, great food, great wine, great setting... If we were here longer, we would definitely be coming back!

    This restaurant was exquisite, the “I trust you” meal was excellent, the staff couldn’t do enough. I don’t normally recommend restaurants but I would definitely recommend this one. We will definitely return next time we are in Sorrento!! Wonderful experience!

    An excellent restaurant and by far the best culinary experience we had in Sorrento and the surrounding area. I have always been a little bit sceptical about starred restaurants in areas that have a strong tradition for food, but Il Buco superseded by far anything we ate in the four days we had in the area. We tried the Menu Degustazione - with wine pairing - both of which were delicious and perfectly balanced. The menu also presented us with the best pasta dish (a derivation of linguine alle vongole) that we'd eaten in Italy over the course of 3 weeks. The service was attentive and especially kind towards our 3 year old daughter who was also served (by the way) a delicious carbonara that was devoured. We highly recommend it.

    A superb meal. The special fish of the day - cod with melon - was unlike anything we have tired before; truly imaginative and absolutely delicious. The pasta course and dessert were of the same exceptional standard. The ambience in the cellar was a cool and refreshing relief from the heat and noise of the Sorrento summer up above. Service and welcome impeccable.
