Well, the pasta is very, "restaurant-esque," but everything else is just like being at home. We've come here for our anniversary the past two years and it is the only day of the year we will go out to eat Italian food (why would I spent $60.00+ on something I/my father can make just as well or better?). I'll start... More

Don't be put off by the dated interior - the food is absolutely excellent and the service swift and courteous.

For dinner and drinks. A small place packed with tables so the noise level is high however the service and food are worth it. There is the traditional water girl and bread service. The menu choices are varied with seafood being the most pricey. We had a veal special, cannelloni, carbonara and seafood/veal. All food was absolutely awesome. Every plate... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we were definitely not disappointed. The Scampi was fabulous as was the lemon veal. Probably the best tiramisu I have ever had. The staff was very attentive without being overpowering. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Buon Giorno is an average alternative for Italian food lovers. The plate size is as expected however they tend to be on the spicy side. The spaghetti Carbonara would be my recommendation. The place decor seems a little bit outdated and the lighting is on the low side. Overall experience is average.

We have been to this restaurant several times over the years. Our previous experiences would have earned the excellent rating. This time, however, we did not have as good an experience. We were seated next to a large and very noisy group which made it hard for us to talk. The food was good but was not as good as... More

Bruschetta was amazing, loaded with garlic & topped with a thin layer of cheese, perfection! Large selection of pastas, every combination you can imagine. Our server was very attentive & the staff really seemed to be very welcoming & caring overall. Try an Italian beer while you're here! Reasonable prices & very big portion sizes.

Amazing Chicken Parm, and one of the best tiramisu I have ever had... The Service was prompt and very efficient, the bread was warm when it was presented to us.

This is a restaurant that has been there quite a while and the decor show it. It is old style Italian, with red checkered tablecloths and the like. I do not think I see such places much in Italy anymore. In any case, we were there for a lunch. Service was helpful and entertaining. Food was what one expected. Nothing... More
