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. I hear they have remodeled so will check out in December.

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

I stay 2 blocks from this restaurant and have been eating here for the past two years. The food is excellent. Although the service has deteriorated. The server was very impatient and had no decency to talk to his guests. I had asked if my chicken could be split in two plates. He got the plate and said to do... More

Loved the location of this restaurant and the red and white checked table clothes on the small outdoor patio were very inviting. I had the sausage rigatoni and found it quite homemade tasting. My daughter and her boyfriend had chicken parmiggiano and said it was pretty good but my homemade version was better :) Dinner rolls are too big -... More

Friends took us out for a special supper. Reservations were made but didn't appear to be needed. We order two special and two meals off the menu. Our waiter was part of the downfall. Service was very slow took over 45 minutes. Food was ok but not memorable, meals came with a small portion of meat, a rather blan starch... More

I went to this resto on the suggestion of a friend and also the b&b owners where I stayed a block away. In my home city I live near an Italian area and we have excellent Italian food at just about every restaurant. Buon Giorno was not excellent. I didn't want anything creamy so ordered a simple spaghetti bolognese which... More

My husband and I have been long time patrons of the restaurant. We always choose Buon Giorno for birthdays and special occasions. We found out last night that new owners had taken over. I'm sorry to say we didn't find the meals as tasty as before. It definitely wasn't exceptional.

It has been a long time since I visited this restaurant but since 17th Avenue is so close we decided to drop in...fortunately there was room for us to sit on the patio watching the people and the traffic! A bit noisy with the motorbikes going up and down, but otherwise very pleasant. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful... More
