“Great sauce great meatballs”
Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

One of only three restaurants that I can eat the sauce at. There are not many restaurants in Buffalo that have palatable sauce. Considering I grew up on the Westside of Buffalo in the 70's in an all Italian neighborhood I know good sauce. Chef's sauce and meatballs are great. Everything about the restaurant is perfectly a West Side Italian restaurant even though it's located downtown. You will never regret getting the spaghetti parm.

“Classic Buffalo”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

If you are visiting Buffalo, this is a must stop for Italian Dining. They are very accommodating for Gluten Free dining. Gluten Free pasta is cooked properly.

“It's Tradition!”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We have been coming to Chef's for over 25 years. Every time we visit Buffalo we try to eat here. We have spent our 25th Wedding Anniversay, many Birthday's and most recently our 35th Anniversay. 90% of the times we come to Chef's we are satisfied with the food and service. Sometimes, when it is busy the service is harried, but that can be expected. It is affordable and the food is consistent. They have renovated some of the restaurant but should update the bathrooms and perhaps the ceilings and part of the older interior decor. We have brought our sons and their girl friends over the years. "Everyone Loves Chef's"

“classic italian”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

It is the usual italian fare and always very crowded and noisy. The veal parmisian is very good. the service is adequate but a little rushed because of the crowds

“Great spaghetti parm!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

I've been to Chef's four times now. I haven't been able to stray from the spaghetti parm because it is so good! I always ask for it crispy so the cheese is done to perfection on top. Their homemade bread is to die for. I wish the prices were a little lower though.
