“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

My husband surprised me with a bday luncheon at Buono Bistro (30 people). The place was clean and welcoming. The servers were outstanding! We started with the Promodoro Caprese salad and it was delicious. I ordered the Parmagiano Chicken and it was very good (good portion size). My family and friends ordered the Baked Haddock and also the Steak tips and they loved it. Overall, we had a great time with friends and family, with great food and great service. I will come back to for dinner soon.

“A local favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

We treat ourselves every few months to a family dinner at Buono Bistro. The menu is interesting, but we've been there enough to wish for some changes. When they have specials, they are creative and never disappoint. We just wish there were always being offered.

“Food ok. Understaffed...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Have been here before. Had better experience then. This time they only had two servers...and place was almost filled up. So service was definitely compromised. Food was ok. Enjoyed the mussels a lot. Entree was not exactly as described on menu....menu said light tomato sauce but felt it was very rich... Had the land and sea specialty.... May come back because still have a groupon to use up but will just choose entree better next time and will try not to expect the best service. But hope they improve. Would love to support local places like these.....

This is a give it a try and you will be back type of place! 4 of us went with a groupon. The menu had everything you would expect and the specials sounded delicious ! Being a new place to all of us were stayed with the menu and trying the can not miss Italian fair. We got 2 apps for the table one was the Bruschetta and the at her was the grilled squash. The bruschetta was a meal in itself and very good, I did not have the squash but there was nothing left on the plate.

Dinner: there was chicken ziti broccoli which had a great sauce, mine was the veal parm, excellent, chicken cutlet no chese, veal cutlet no cheese. With dinner for a little extra you got a salad. I got the Cesar with anchovies, very good . He others were garden salads.

For a Tuesday night it was busy! Great time, good prices. Great food.
