We have been to this restaurant several times over the years. Our previous experiences would have earned the excellent rating. This time, however, we did not have as good an experience. We were seated next to a large and very noisy group which made it hard for us to talk. The food was good but was not as good as... More

Bruschetta was amazing, loaded with garlic & topped with a thin layer of cheese, perfection! Large selection of pastas, every combination you can imagine. Our server was very attentive & the staff really seemed to be very welcoming & caring overall. Try an Italian beer while you're here! Reasonable prices & very big portion sizes.

Amazing Chicken Parm, and one of the best tiramisu I have ever had... The Service was prompt and very efficient, the bread was warm when it was presented to us.

This is a restaurant that has been there quite a while and the decor show it. It is old style Italian, with red checkered tablecloths and the like. I do not think I see such places much in Italy anymore. In any case, we were there for a lunch. Service was helpful and entertaining. Food was what one expected. Nothing... More

My daughter and I have been going to Buon Giorno's for a decade and now that it's under new ownership the food has really suffered. They used to make THE BEST ceasar salad in the city, along with the BEST spaghetti bolognese and sausage pizza. They've dropped the pizza altogether, the salad was a soggy fishy, mess and after we...

We stayed downtown calgary and wanted dinner in walking distance. we found this on tripadvisor and what a find! Wine was great. Busy but no waiting required. Brusetta is excellent very fresh. Caesar salad was the best I have had in a long time! Seriously good! WE both had veal dishes with pasta of the day. Very flavourful and yummy!... More

Have been here several times and love every minute of it. Us four girls from work go around Christmas time along with our presents and have a drink, some appetizers their Brushetta is to die for and our dinner the atmosphere is cozy and the people are great.

We visited Boun Giorno a little later on Friday night (around 8pm), and were seated right away by the cutest little tiny lady. The service was excellent (thanks Tino!), the food superb. Tino was at our table often to ensure we were enjoying ourselves, and took some time to chat, which lent a nice personal touch to our dining experience.... More
