Good Quality but Bring your Wallet

It is easy to miss this restaurant from the road but it is worth the hunt. My first impression when entering was that it was very dimly lit. We met friend there and they had secured a booth. It was much cozier than the tables in the center of the restaurant. They have the bar area divided off from... read more

It never looks open, and does not look like much from the outside. I must have past this place 100 times before we tried it. Very good Italian dishes. Try the chefs love....THE VEAL, Outstanding. Bring your piggy bank....you will need it.

Received a coupon to try the restaurant, and brought my mom for an early dinner on the weekend. While the atmosphere is nice and wait staff are good, the food was horrible. Both of us were not thrilled with our meals. Unless the food is absolutely horrible, I always give folks a second chance as everyone has an off nite.... More

Found this place from a Groupon. It was a pleasant surprise. We started with a salad that we shared and it was enough for both. My wife got the evening special, which was surf & turf NY sirloin and scallop's, it came with rabie and mushroom risotto. The steak would have been enough for a meal but there was four... More

Simply put this has become our favorite Italian restaurant in the area. Fantastic menu selections, great prices and a weekday special that includes dinner for two, desert and a bottle of wine for $59. We love the Chicken Margarita and the Tuna as well as the Veal Saltimbocca and the Rib Eye Steaks. Service is always excellent and the owner... More

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...
