My husband and I are big fans of Bongiorno's. The service is great and the food is delicious. The marinara sauce is probably the best I've ever had and the dishes are reasonably priced.

I really like this place. It is quaint, friendly service, good food. I went with my granddaughter 2x and the second time the waiter actually remembered her (not me just her - haha) The food is very good and the prices are normal. I just went to lunch with my girlfriend and we had a really good lunch. The parking... More

Having read reviews on this well-established Italian eatery, we decided to give it a go as our friend lives within walking distance. We were its first customers this evening and were served promptly and, not knowing the evening specials, I was politely reprimanded that they were on the board by the front door and I should have read them on...

We enjoyed our evening with good pasta and rather nice house Chianti. We chatted to the owner and then his wife who is the chef and enjoyed some of his home made grappa. That's how an Italian dinner should be! A pleasant night out

While the outside does not look like anything special, the food is out of this world; easily the best Italian food I have ever had. The owner and the chef go out of their way to be hospitable.

We found this restaurant by chance (including Trip Advisor reviews). What a great find!The staff and owners were phenomenal. Felt at home. Food was great as well as the ambience. We were among the last to leave, because we ended up chatting, laughing and sharing jokes and drinks with the other remaining diners and with Felix (he owns the restaurant... More

In my dining experience,which is extensive, I have rarely sent dishes back to the kitchen. I did so at this restaurant. The salad was pathetic, the veal marsala tasted like too much flour, and the pasta side tasted like it was out of a can. No freshly grated Parmesan. Everything tasted canned and,indeed it was, as we discovered with a... More

Can't review the restaurant. We can only comment on the disorganized and unprofessional service which had us walking out of the restaurant. We'd made reservations and arrived to find the restaurant about a third full. Yet the waiters were all darting around like the 3 stooges. There was no host and we stood in the dining room like idiots before... More
