Buon Ricordo is widely acknowledged by critics and diners as one of Australia’s finest Italian restaurants.

From his location in the inner Sydney suburb of Paddington, owner/chef Armando Percuoco has been satisfying local, interstate, and overseas customers with his food and hospitality since 1987.

Armando Percuoco’s menu shows his Neapolitan roots, as well as influences from the many regional cuisines of Italy. Dishes might include such seasonal specialties as crispy fried Harbour prawns served in the shell; or a delicious winter salad of raw fennel and artichoke hearts . A favourite on the current menu for those who love the slight bitterness of raddicchio is Migliaccio, a polenta cake with grilled raddicchio flavoured with sweet vincotto.

The house signature dish is Fettucine al tartufovo - fettucine served in a cream sauce with a lightly fried, truffle-infused eggresulting in a dish the The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide calls - "…undoubtedly Sydney’s best pasta"

Buon Ricordo’s achievements have been recognized by every major Australian restaurant guide. These include:

The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide ‘Best Italian Restaurant’ annually since 1996
Australian Gourmet Traveller - Rated as one of the top fine dining restaurants in Sydney in the 2003 Restaurant Guide Australia
Restaurant & Catering NSW Award for Excellence 2003 - Best Italian Restaurant
Tucker Seabrookes Australia’s Wine List Of The Year Awards - Top rating (3 wine glasses) every year since 1995
