Terrific place for gluten free dining

Very nice atmosphere and large menu, including great selection of gluten free items. Have eaten here several times and will continue to come back.

Visited Buona Sera and enjoyed my visit. Had veal and pasta. The veal and eggplant was pretty good but drowned a bit too much in sauce. Portion size pretty large. I took some home with me. I had strachiatella soup which was pretty delicious. Wait staff was very attentive and checked back many times. Try it on one of their... More

This seems like just another Italian restaurant from the outside. One step inside and tyou see all the display cases are filled with delicious looking Take Out options and Amazing pizza choices. Nice atmosphere inside and Quick seating. The waiter immediately came to inquire about drinks and appetizers. He was back promptly with our choices and we then ordered our... More

Just ordered catering for my son's graduation party; the hero's and penne ala vodka were excellent. Their gluten free pizza is also excellent. I've been coming here for a while; the staff is always friendly and all the food I've ever eaten there has been very good.

Buona Sera is a very pleasant neighborhood pizza parlor and restaurant. The menu and portions are huge, and the staff is one of the friendliest we have ever encountered. I went there one night with friends and brought my husband back the next day. Three waiters remembered me and came over to greet us. Both nights they customized our orders,... More

I will never ever....ever....as in absolutely ever step foot in this place again. Seriously, never. It has nothing to do with the food or the owner or the cleanliness...it all has to do with the three idiots that work behind the counter - especially their ringleader, the Lord of the Morons, the tattooed primate with the black hair and the...

Someone suggested this restaurant so my boyfriend and I decided to try it. We don't live in Smithtown so it was a drive to get there. We went about 6 pm on a Saturday night and the restaurant was packed and noisy. The tables are very close together..it is the long, narrow restaurant side of the pizzeria...they have a few... More

These guys dont care if they lose a customer , they are rude ,especially the manager. And they jipped me. Not worth going back. Lots of other good pizza places around to have to deal with that.

We met a group of friends for dinner. Even though we had made a reservation for a specific table ( the seating for parties of more than four is limited) we were told that there would be a wait. This is really a pizza parlor with a narrow separate dining room. We ended up waiting 30 minutes for a large... More
