Reviewed 25 August 2014

We come across this unexpectately, saw the bufalo picture sign down the lane and thought that looks interesting. We are certainly not disappointed.

The food was very tasty, the bufalo sausages were a big hit as was the seabass. The children enjoyed the food as well. If you have very young children it may not to their taste.
Staff were friendly and very knowledgable about how the food was prepared when asked. It had a good atmosphere both times we went. It does get very busy to book ahead if you can.

“Great food, less than diserable outdoor seating”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

My husband and I went to Inn Bufalito on our last night in Sorrento. Both loving Buffalo Mozzerella we started with some Buffalo proscuito and mozzerella which was fresh and a good serving. The main dishes were a good size and the prices were decent. We were served immediately and there were several workers attending to our table throughout our meal.

The only downfall to this restaurant was that we sat outside seeming on the road and smelled gasoline from the many vespa's that passed. I would definitely visit this restaurant again, but I would request to sit inside or on the outdoor patio close to the entrance of the restaurant to avoid the fumes.

“Lovely food”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

We ate here twice on our recent holiday in Sorrento and both times the food is really good. We didn't book and were seated in the back of the restaurant, i think if you would like to sit outside or near to the outside you might need to get there early or book in advance. Everything we had was delicious and reasonably priced. The service is friendly and speedy. Definitely worth a visit.

“Poor service, food both good and terrible”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

Booked due to TripAdvisor reviews but on the whole came away feeling extremely disappointed, mainly due to their lack of interest in customer service.
Buffalo cheese - amazing!
Focachia with rosemary(which the head waiter recommended as their speciality) was chewy and pale, probably needed cooking more.. so we left it
Rebe buffalo steak for two (costata di buffalo) which was served and carved at the side of the table. IT LOOKED GREAT BUT SERIOUSLY WASN'T! We couldn't eat most of it because it was full of grizzle, fat, and other bits that were impossible to chew. The pile of meat we couldn't eat represented 3 quarters of the whole steak. When the head waiter came to take our plates, he whisked them so quickly and did not ask how our meal was or comment on the pile of fat and grizzle that we'd left, also not allowing us to comment to him either. We saw that the head waitress look very shocked at the amount that we left, but she too did not come to ask us.
Our desert forks were thrown on the table and one was very dirty. Cheesecake was good. Wine was excellent.
Didn't leave a tip as the main meal was so terrible and because they just weren't interested in whether we had enjoyed it at all. Other people have commented on their lack of interedt and this is what we witnessed too... Not only with us but with so many people they served... they just were not interested. So, don't bother going as the people serving in other places are so very friendly and are bothered about whether you enjoy it or not... We have enjoyed the service everywhere else. Here was terrible even though it looks like it will be great. Needless to say we did not leave a tip and will never go back.

“Consistently outstanding. ”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

Not easy to find but well worth the effort, Inn Bufalito is a great place and somewhere I've eaten regularly and every time it's been excellent.

Firstly it's a good idea to book and don't forget they're shut on a Tuesday (don't ask me why).

The menu is not too extensive which I think is a good thing and everything on it is excellent, I can recommend everything but the fondu to start with the rosemary focaccia is my favourite starter and I'll always go for the fillet steak. The chef is excellent and the meat is always cooked just how I like it (medium rare) and never over cooked.

A good wine list and you have the perfect place for a wonderful Sorrento evening, miss it at your peril.
