We took a chance on Sperata after finding it on the"open table" app. We are so glad we did. Everything about it was wonderful. The ambiance set by the beautiful piano music, the delicious food and the impeccable service. The restaurant did not give us just a meal, but a truly unforgettable experience.

Okay, I am catching up on all my reviews of restaurants in Buford on Main. Need to finish with Sperata. What I like about this place is the coziness of the atmosphere, yet we still have the bounce and liveliness that we enjoy when eating. I don't like loud places where you can't hear yourself talk, but I don't want... More

We like to celebrate special occasions at Sperata and have never been disappointed until tonight. My steak was sent back twice before it was "sort of" right. I ordered the $9 glass of A Crisp Chardonnay and my husband ordered the $9 glass of William Hill Cab. My husband finished his meal while I still waited on mine. The bill,... More

Wonderful meal. The setting had the feel of an authentic Italian restaurant & the service was excellent. The Lamb Chops & their Signature Salad are absolutely delicious.

We had been to Sperata on past Valentine’s Days for dinner. It had always been good. In keeping with tradition, we made this year’s reservation two months in advance by going into the restaurant and requesting a table that was special for us. We even watched as the attendant noted that table for us on the computer. Ahead of the... More

The food was good but service was horrible!! We wanted lobster bisque for starter. She never came back until our main course came out. I wanted another glass of wine & couldn't get her attention for that. They weren't that busy to excuse bad service!!! Never got the lobster bisque & she didn't seem too concerned about it. Went last... More

Upscale Italian/Mediterranean fare a bit pricy for its location. The foods and service were on point, helping justify the price, but still this would be better placed in Atlanta's Buckhead area.

Horrible service and food. Took forever to get food and it wasn't good. Don't waste your time or money. Go anywhere else. Lots of restaurants in Buford to enjoy much better food and service.

Great place in historical downtown Buford. Some friends recommended months ago and we finally made it. Nothing nearby compares to their menu choices. Appetizers and salads were amazing. The entrées are large enough to share. Would recommend for date night or large groups.

After a few friends recommending this place and not wanting to drive into the City for my birthday, I thought we'd give this a try. Never again. Food was okay but not worth the price. Wait staff was inattentive and had no interest in being of "service" at any level. Yes, they did give me a free dessert for my... More
