We sit on the restaurant side. Service is very fast. Quantity of food for the price is great! Chicken parm dinner is amazing and the portion sizes are huge. I got a bowl of chicken soup instead of salad and it wasn't those little cups of soup, it was huge and had a lot of meat in it. Not a... More

Wed have been going to Buona Sera fir years, always a great dinner. My favorites are the Veal parm, as well as the combo pasta dishes. Excellent, nice atmosphere.

Nothing to write home about here where the food is concerned, however they do have a good staff; at least when we ate there. Same usual menu with different types of pizza, pasta, chicken, what they call veal, and some fish dishes. Pleasant atmosphere. Good for a family dinner or small group. Very accommodating.

Great food, service, and reasonable prices. Good place to have good Italian food. We have eaten here many times and plan on eating here many more. Slice of pizza or a dinner, to a quiet place for a glass of wine.

I used to come here daily for lunch and take out for my family for dinner at least once a week. The old owners were so nice and got to know their customers. The new owner whom I believe took over a few years ago is awful. Changed pizza sauce so I don't eat the pizza. Met him at least... More

This is our daily pizza spot! The endless amount of choices is why we continue to go back! They have a wide range of speciality slices and items from eggplant rolls, wraps, salad pizza to stuffed garlic knots! We even get our catering from there for large parties! They are always helpful and make us feel at home!

We made a reservation, but when we got there we were told we would have to wait. Apparently the reservation didn't matter. The service was good and prompt and prices reasonable. A little pushy on the wine, we felt like we were being sold. The salad was just iceberg and a slice of tomato. My salmon and vegetables was extremely... More

I love, love, love Buona Sera! I love the waitstaff (shout out to Pedro), the food is always wonderful, and we've been here many times and brought many friends for dinner. They've always loved everything they've had as well. This is our go-to place.
