The Lasagna was excellent, the sauce tasted homemade. The was was over 1 hr., and the place is quite small, but the dinner was worth the wait. There is a bar area while waiting for tables.

“Small place great food,”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

When you drive up do not be surprised at all the cars surrounding the building. You enter thru the bar room ,which is very crowded. We thought all these people were waiting to be seated. Not true. We got a table for 3 immediately. Very close tables & very noises, the special was prime rib remo. No one at our table ordered it but the table next to us did. WOW, what a piece of meat. I ordered veal picotta , which was the best I have ever had. I love lemon flavoring & this was excellent, another ordered ordered lemon chicken. Again a lemony sauce but different than mine. The 3rd person had a salad & fried calamari. The menu is extensive with specials on the chalkboard. A salad & starch came with each meal. The portions were so large, we got to take our starch home. Next time I will only order the meal. No need for appetizers. Not a date place-too noises-but great food,

“Small restaurant BUT with good food!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

I'll start-off by saying that Cafe del buono works in close-quarters when it comes to the restaurant business, so if you're not keen on small spaces you might want to go somewhere else. Otherwise, the wait on a busy Friday evening was roughly 15 - 20 minutes and despite the evening meal rush my boyfriend and I had a waitress at our table in a matter of minutes. Because they claim to prepare their dishes "from scratch" Cafe del buono gives the reminder that your meal could take some time to be served, but ours didn't take very long. Overall, the food was good but this restaurant could afford to expand their square footage.
