Good Food

Gets busy here especially before show time at the theater around the corner. We all enjoyed our food and service was fine. Prices are fair and the atmosphere nice. Would come back.

My fiancee and I like to go here when we feel like having a night out but don't have anything specific planned. It always feels special, yet it's reasonably priced and not difficult to get a reservation for. Their tortellini Carbornara is delicious, their seafood is fresh, and I enjoy their ricotta cheesecake. It's a great place to go if... More

The food and service was excellent. We sat upstairs it was pleasant without crowd noise. The lower level on the main bar side of the restaurant can be loud.

My husband was a big fan of Buona Sera for many years (he was a local and has since moved to north Jersey). We had gone for dinner once before (over a year ago) and it was delicious so we decided to go back for our 1st wedding anniversary. It was a Thursday and not too crowded. We started with... More

Great atmosphere. Upstairs is cool and private room in lower level is one of a kind. Must see it. Nice crowd.

My girlfriend and I had come to Buona Sera to eat after a Buddy Guy show at the Count Basie Theater. We were very happy to have a place available for some dinner, as during the week most places close earlier, but Buona Sera was open until 2 am.. As we walked in, there was music and dancing (Thursday night... More

My husband and I ate here before seeing a show at the Count Basie Theater. The location is great -- right next to the theater. This is a nice restaurant, and I found the food to be excellent, the portions were big, and the prices to be very reasonable for food and drink. They also have a nice wine list... More

The Count Basie Theatre is right next door, so this is a can't miss restaurant choice before seeing a show. It has good food and fine ambience. Our waiter made sure that all our courses were timed right to assure we were on time to see the show. My seafood risotto was cooked just right. We happened to be there... More
