Good for you and your parents

Very good. This place reminded me of a family Italian restaurant I used to go as a kid. Good part is the food. Definitely homemade and a lot of selections. Many specials and a full bar. Come hungry and leave full. I enjoyed the onion soup which wasn't salty like other places. Also... read more

We have enjoyed many meals at this restaurant. I feel like I'm visiting my Italian "nonna" and I'm in her dining room. The list of specials goes on and on, different every time. I usually order one of them and I always enjoy my meals. Main dishes come with pasta, potato or veggie. When you sit down they bring hot... More

This place serves great food , but is a bit on the pricy side. Their specials are worth going for and would recommend reservations. I've been there for dinner and private events, both times food was delicious. The servers are very good but the atmosphere can get crowded. Overall, a great place to go for a good Italian meal.

Always friendly welcome, huge menu and long list of specials. I enjoyed the Italian wedding soup, lasagna, broccoli rabe. Broccoli rabe too bitter for my tastes. But all else was quite good. Good wine and drinks.

I love this restaurant. The food is consistently delicious. Don't even look in the menu just enjoy the amazing waiters, rattle off enough specials that everyone will in your party will order one. It's an Old World Italian restaurant that remembers how to their treat their customers, like they famiglia. (family). We are always welcomed with open arms, hugs and... More

This is a casual, cozy Italian restaurant who employs friendly staff and prepares delicious Italian fare. Italian is not my favorite cuisine, but I couldn't think of a single reason that they didn't deserve the 5 star rating. We walked in with no reservation and were accommodated immediately at the bar, which is where we wanted to be. The hostess... More

As my husband and I Christmas shopped this weekend, we stopped for lunch at Buon Amici in White Plains. We were so pleasantly surprised at the choices and most of all the cost of the delicious dishes that we had. We have been here for dinner before (I had my Mom's birthday in their private room downstairs) so I already... More

We had not visited Buon Amici in White Plains in several years. Dinner on a Wednesday night was very good. There were many specials as well as a menu with many traditional choices. The pasta fagioli was very good - could use a little salt. The Shrimp Fra Diavolo with linguine was fresh with just the right amount of heat... More
