This is by far too notch Italian. I had the fettuccine Alfredo and it was amazing. Large portions was great for having leftovers for lunch the next day which I love. The staff was smart and quick and friendly. My boyfriend had an amazing dish that he got "parm". It was covered in a delicious layer of melted Parmesan cheese.... More

We went the weekend after Thanksgiving (reservations weeks in advance) and it was packed. The waitress was very nice, all 6 kids and 6 adults really loved the food! I can't wait to go back!

Recently met at Chef's for our monthly luncheon . We are a large group of former airline employees and choose a different location each time we meet. Chef's was a good choice. We were seated quickly as everyone arrived within a few minutes. Never felt rushed for everyone to make their choices for lunch. Our waitress was terrific, separate checks... More

While visiting Buffalo a friend recommend Chef's for dinner. We were not disappointed. The service was great. We did have a little wait even with reservations. Very clean relaxed atmosphere. Great for families. Bread with dipping oil was delicious. You have to have the spaghetti parm even if it's just a side. I had the eggplant and veal parm...yum! Very... More

The most overrated Italian restaurant in the city. Service is good. It's clean. They are friendly. But...I've had better sauce from a jar. Sauce is bland. Think of it as the Miller lite of Italian restaurants; it won't hurt you but you won't be raving about it.

Chef's is the place we take out-of-town guests to experience the Italian side of Buffalo. The prices are reasonable, the service is always great, and the food is amazing. We love Chef's!

The service is friendly with a nice family atmosphere. My favorite thing to order is the Spaghetti Parm. It's a plate of spaghetti and sauces topped with melted mozzarella. Who doesn't love all that cheese on top?! Alongreat with an extra side of sauce. I get the large plate and it is a lot to eat but it is yummy... More
