We met another couple there, and sat at the bar. We ordered scallops n bacon, stuffed mushrooms, eggplant special appetizer, calamari and shrimp cocktail. Everything was awesome. Do not the the outside of the building scare you away.

May cousin recommended this restaurant. I hadn't been there since it had opened a few years back. I went recently with a group. The waitress was very nice and eager to please. We waited from a couple of women joining us so a couple of us ordered an appetizer. Two of us had soup the other had ceasar salad. I... More

We had a Saturday lunch at this restaurant, They have a pretty extensive menu, but we enjoy their panini sandwiches, which are delicious. I had the Tuscan Turkey. My husband had the Eggplant Parm, which was equally good. The sandwiches are served with a side of pasta salad and are so large, we both took half of our sandwiches home.... More

The restaurant was old and in need of some severe updating. Our waitress was sweet and prompt despite being the only server on. I had the lunch portion of shrimp scampi over angel hair pasta. It tasted good and my portion was enough to take some home. The prices were not bad either

Hubby started with the Caesar Salad, which is always good. Then he got the steak tips with shrimp. He asked for the broccoli steamed soft which was perfect. Mashed potatoes needed more seasoning (more butter, salt and pepper). I got the shrimp alfredo which was one of the best ones I have had. I ended with the Berry Mojito and... More

Usually when I try a new Italian restaurant, I try something simple like spagetti or lasagne. If they mess it up, I will not return. I had the lasagne and was pleasantly suprised how good it tasted. This retuarant has changed hands so often, that it has been difficult to guage the food. But, I will definitely return and try... More

My wife and I have eaten at most of the area restaurants and this might be our new favorite! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful while the food was extremely tasty. Everything tasted fresh and the specials were creative. Prices were reasonable and the food was extremely flavorful. Be sure to enjoy the bread. It was also great to... More

Went there with family members on advice of friends. Had a very attentive waiter explained all the specials and had a great meal And great service. We ate there at 500 pm and were the only people there. Had three rounds of drinks during the happy hour but paid full price because we did not eat at the bar? Crazy!... More

Just had a wonderful brunch with my husband at Buono Panini. Food was delicious & the service was spot on. The owner was pleasant and friendly. Homemade corn beef hash was to die for! Definitely be back.

Had lunch here last week, it's an old Ihop with the angled roof. Bright and inviting inside upon entering. Waitress was good and polite, just a bit quiet and kind of shy. I used mens room first, it was RIGHT next to the kitchen! Just a very strange location. The kitchen is also open to the restaurant. Had a soup... More
