We love it here! We've been a few times, and the meal is always fantastic, whether it's chicken, fish, pasta, or some combination. And the desserts are fantastic. If you're in the area, check it out

We ate here on a Thursday night in October and are so glad we did! We had the seafood pasta with delicious and fresh shrimp, scallops, clams, and mussels (we asked for no calamari). Everything in the pasta tasted scrumptious. We also had a delicious and fresh Buono Panini salad with a slightly sweet balsamic vinaigrette. Very yummy too! They... More

This building, a former iHop, has a comfortable bar and a nice dining room, right off Rt 28 in Salem, where fast food choices abound. The restaurant is much more (and pricier), and I enjoyed a cup of wedding soup and a delicious flatbread pizza appetizer. I was alone and at the bar when the very attentive young bartender told...

We were skeptical walking in because there were not many cars in lot. It must have been because it was a Wednesday night at 8:30. The food was authentic Italian at its best. The bread was fresh and hot, the salad was crisp and green with a phenomenal house dressing and the meals we ordered were so good, we almost... More

I went to Buono Panini based on a friends recommendation, and am I glad I did. This is an understated, family-run business and has all the personal touches that go wtih that. I have been there just with my wife and with our kids. Every dish we had was prepared expertly and was extremely tasteful. The staff from the bussers,... More

Had lunch here with the family, and had a very good experience. We were greeted at the door in a very friendly manner, and told we could sit where ever we wanted. Server came over immediately for our drink and took our order. The food was prepared perfectly, and everything was great. Pasta was cooked perfectly, the sauce was just... More

My Fiancé and I finally got to go out on a date night and we are so happy we chose the right place since we do not get out that much. The atmosphere was beautiful with dim lighting and light music. The service was amazing as wells the food. They were very busy but we still were seated and served... More
