Buon Ricordo is a fabulous spot, we had an amazing lunch. The truffle eggs fettuccine is a must. Nick was terrific, I would recommend a visit! Parking is a challenge though, everything near is 1 hour restricted.

Amazing experience. Wonderful staff.

Attentive service that was not intrusive. Flavours of each dish was exceptional and portions just perfect. Traditional interiors add to ‘good memories’ of Italy, Naples. Waiters in white jackets add to the authentic atmosphere. Highly recommend. Thank you Buon Ricordo.

The truffled egg fettuccine is ‘out of this world,’ the service is friendly and attentive and the atmosphere lovely (we were surrounded by beautiful artwork and sculpture).

About Buon Ricordo Restaurant

A Sydney Classic Over the past 21 years, Buon Ricordo has fed everyone from Cate Blanchett to the Packer family, and it’s not hard to see why. Order right at this established restaurant and you’re in for a real treat. Chef and restaurateur Armando Percuoco is all about keeping dishes pared back, and letting flavours speak for themselves. To take full advantage of the food here, stick to the entrees and pastas, and share them to sample as much of Buon Ricordo’s authentic Italian cooking as you can. The parmesan-cream fettuccine, with its truffled fried egg, is a dish that regulars won't let retire from the menu, so you’d be silly not to give it a whirl. From the jacketed wait-staff; dishes finished off tableside; old world wines; ironed tablecloths; upholstered high-back chairs; and a soundtrack, not a playlist playing softly in the background, you can see why diners hold this place so close to their hearts. Best dish: parmesan-cream fettuccine
