a pleasant surprise

I've been seeing groupons here for a while and finally gave it a try. My girlfriend and I went on a Tuesday night around 5 and sat at the bar. By the time we left 6:30ish the bar was just about full and the tables I could see were filled. The bar is nice and cozy, not too big, straight... read more

Bought a Groupon for Buono Bistro. Deceiving looking from outside. It is in a strip mall. We had called ahead for a reservation per the Groupon requirements. We were seated in a high top table. Food was very good, service not so much. There was live music right next to us which was a bit loud but bearable. It is... More

Great service, great ambviance, great food. Family run right thru to the chef and it shows. Tough to spot from the road, but once there, you will never miss it again. Tip Must try the Osso Bocco Must try the Veal Chop

I've had some of their pasta dishes and they were very good. I was not impressed with their Eggplant Parmesan Panini I had for lunch. Eggplant was under cooked and not very edible.

It has been a few weeks since we last ate at Buono Bistro and we were not disappointed by their excellent food and service. On our previous visit we enjoyed the experience so much that we both agreed we must do this again. We try to go to as many different restaurants as possible but we always have a repeat... More

Had a Groupon and decided to use it tonight for dinner. We have driven by this place many times, it is not well situated. The interior was pleasantly decorated but the noise from the bar was a bit oppressive. Can't think what it must be like on a crowded weekend night. Food was priced a tad bit high, Groupon took...

A few of us went as we had a groupon. My test is always the veal.it was delicious and you could cut it with a fork. Sal came out to ask us if we enjoyed our meals. The help was excellent! Will return.

Live in the area and have tried Buono Bistro several times because we really want it to be good as we are always hoping for more good choices for restaurants in our area as the choices are somewhat limited. Every time we go we are disappointed and leave feeling that the food is average at best and not worth the... More

We chose this restaurant as a result of receiving a Groupon offer. I read the reviews and some were very negative, particularly on the staff. The issues mostly spoke about were regarding slow, unresponsive staff. We found just the opposite. We were greeted as soon as we arrived, seated, and our server was there within 5 minutes. The staff was... More

I made reservations, although the restaurant was not crowded, on a Friday evening. We ordered the mussels served in a white wine sauce and can honestly say they were the best we have had in quite awhile. The Veal Piccata was very good and my friend enjoyed the steak tips. The waitress was very pleasant and took our cocktail order... More
