Great delicious pizzas. The house red is excellent value. The staff were really nice. The fagotta pizza is one of the best pizzas I've ever had.

Pretty decent Italian fare, nothing too adventurous but not bland or generic Italian fare either. Reasonably priced, staff nice enough, decor quite cheerful. Probably not the place for a special occasion or romantic meal, but it seems to be a reliable drop-in place if you're in the area.

Went out with family for a Sunday dinner and couldn't be pleased more! Cosy, relaxed atmosphere, good service, great food and the portions are huge! Never seen a bigger calzone in my life!

The food was good and well worth the money. However the waiter forgot our second drinks order and took at least 15 minutes to bring the bill.

Service was poor / we felt forgotten on a busy Friday evening. Noise was crazy, we were literally shouting at each other. Our bruschetta starter was two small pieces of toast with a heap of chopped tasteless tomatoes - the key garlic rub on toast was missing so I was not happy paying over £5 for this. Onto the main...

Went last Saturday and was disappointed. The food was so bland that I had to add chilly oil just to liven it up. It was also very very noisy. The restaurant is busy so can get loud with people talking, which I accept but they put the music up so loud that everyone had to shout to each other to... More

There are plenty of places to eat on Northcote road and while Buona Sera was tasty, I wouldn't hurry back. The service was quick and friendly and the menu has plenty of choice. I had a pizza which was nice and good for the price.

We went as a large group on a Saturday evening about 7pm, service was really good given the size of the group, all the staff were really friendly and helpful. The restaurant was incredibly busy all night but it made for a great atmosphere. Pizzas were great, some of the other dishes weren't as tasty but all good value for... More

Lovely light Italian restaurant. Margarita pizza & spaghetti meatballs for the kids, fantastic linguine scoglio for the grown ups. We sat down at Byrons for a burger and were very glad we left and went here.

Visiting on Halloween was probably not the best choice as we had a little wait to get a table and the restaurant was crowded. However, the drinks arrived very quickly and our food didn't take too long considering. I have been here before and I am always happy to come back.
