We thought we would give this popular Restaurant another try after a not so good experience a few years back. The staff was very friendly and attentive and we enjoyed the delicious Mozzarella Carozza appetizer BUT I was very disappointed with my Bolognese Sauce...the menu said it was made with fresh pork but there was ground Sausage Meat and I...

Finally ate at Buona Sera, and it was interesting! Sat at a table on second level overlooking 1st floor diners, and was very interesting to see all the different foods that people were having. Portions are huge-most people leave with leftovers. We started with clams oregenato, which were good-not great. Lots of bread crumbs over one clam. I had chicken... More

You visit this restaurant and you are in for a great meal for sure!!! Everything that comes out of the kitchen is delicious. My last visit there, I went with the steak and it was cooked to perfection.

Every year we come here for our annual birthday celebrations and everyone has a wonderful time! We were a group of seven and the service was excellent! The food, as always, was delicious. I personally had the linguine with white clam sauce which was outstanding. The portions are very large, so bring your appetite! They also have a variety of... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and it never disappoints. The service begins with the reception. Almost immediately your server appears and offers drink specials as they offers the menus. You can not make a quick decision with the many delectable dishes. Then comes the specials as your drinks are delivered. Having been there for lunches and dinners... More

The menu is very varied, the butter served with bread is to die for and made on site. Portions are generous. Pricing is reasonable. I've been here many times, ordered off the menu and have had family style. I've never had a bad meal here. You can't go wrong. It's a bit noisy but a great go to restaurant that... More

This restaurant was recommended to us and we know why. The interior is delightful, the high ceilings, character and decor made the ambience just perfect for our romantic evening meal. Our Waiter was attentive and excellent at ever step. He was very helpful with the wine selection too. I ordered the calamari to start and was greeted by an enormous... More
