I adore this restaurant, with the quality of food, service and wine as excellent as ever now that David Wright is continuing the tradition started by Armando Percuoco.
Absolutely brilliant ! I have travelled extensively throughout Europe and enjoyed some lovely dishes but David is an artist his attention to detail is perfect! The team really look after your every need ! The atmosphere is lovely and tranquil! All dishes were balanced with flavour and being Italian myself we rarely go to a restaurant and feel satisfied with the quality of food, service & atmosphere but Buon Ricordo excel in all aspects ! Very highly recommended !!!!
Everything was lovely, thanks!
We had a wonderful evening. The food was first class and the service was terrific. Highly recommended. Our waiter was very attentive, but not intrusive. A night to remember!
Lovely restaurant with great service
Best Italian food in Sydney
Love it. The FETTUCCINE AL TARTUFOVO is amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Buon Riccordo is a must for food lovers. The menu has something for everyone, the servings are very generous, an excellent wine list, and for fine dining the prices are very reasonable. David does a great job in the kitchen, and the staff are very friendly and attentive. The truffle fettuccine is our favourite.
Great food and service. Nice, old school italian vibe, but very expensive - even for Sydney!
Sad to hear Armando left the business but the standard was still excellent, still had a few signature dishes like the truffle egg pasta and will go again!
Very overpriced for the food served. Expensive wine list.
It’s been on my bucket list for some time and wasn’t disappointed
Had been waiting to try their Truffled egg fettuccini for a while now, it met expectations & was complimented by a great remainder of menu & warm service staff. Will be going back on a special occasion.
Amazing experience. Wonderful staff.
Always reliable with delicious food and great service!
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).
Great service with amazing food!
The food was absolutely delicious and the staff excellent.
Great evening with friendly staff

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.
