Buono Bistro has an understated exterior in an office park environment, so its location doesn't jump out at you. The first time we ate there we were very happy with our experience, and we now visit every few months. The pasta and chicken are always well prepared with good portions - sometimes we leave with leftovers, sometimes not. Great drink... More

The atmosphere is nice, a little on the "cold" side, but the food and the service was very good. I had the Veal Parm and it was delicious! More than enough, I brought home a doggie bag for my lunch! Drinks were good, but a bit expensive. All adults when we were dining so it made for a really nice... More

We brought our 11 and 13 year old grandchildren to this restaurant. These children are accustomed to dining out and in high end restaurants. We were seated in the center with a large-screen TV directly opposite our seating. It had the feel of a cafeteria rather than a stylish bistro. The bread was good; the service not so much. We...

My boyfriend and I had been here a couple of times before I decided to take him for his birthday. The first time we had a female waitress and she was great. The 2nd time we had Armondo. I found him to be un-interested in us as customers that first time, like he couldn't wait to get off duty. This... More

We chose this restaurant based on tripadvisor reviews, and were horribly disappointed with the food and service. The only thing this restaurant had going for it was the ambiance. We arrived approximately 10 minutes before our reservation. We were seated by the hostess promptly, and the waitress came over to take a drink order. We initially ordered waters, and waited... More

Menu is extensive, including drinks, reasonably priced. Portobello mushroom appetizer could be a meal, excellent. Calamari was perfect, melting in your mouth not gummy. Seafood casserole had generous amounts of haddock, shrimp & scallops. This will not be on next season's menu we were told but should. Atmosphere was nice & wait staff very pleasant. Will definitely return & will... More

We have dined at the Buono Bistro several times now and I would keep coming back. The servers are excellent, your meal begins with a basket of hot homemade rosemary bread sticks, delicious. the chicken Margarita had a wonderful dried apricot grand mariner sauce, which was sweet but not too sweet. My husband had the combo, "Land and sea" he... More

Wonderful server Armando. Food very good and service great. Highly recommend! Restaurant owners should always know that your wait staff represents you and is 50% of the dining experience! 2 couples and had a great evening.
