We had a carafe of the house sangiovese--very nice at a good price point. I had the shrimp diavola--five shrimp and nice pasta. My wife had the osso buco. We shared the house salad. THe bread/focaccia basket and the two tapenades--olive and red pepper--were the best part of the meal. The food was OK, but just OK. The prices are... More

The food was so horrible, the only plus side is that it was worth the memory as it was so unforgettably bad. We tried this place on a whim, and while the service was fine (far too many middle aged male servers), the food was bland, not properly cooked, and honest to goodness, Olive Garden would have been tastier.

Great food, everything I have had here at Bonaroti's has been excellent. The place is a little stuffy and could use a more relaxed & casual atmosphere for its cuisine.

Took my wife there to celebrate her new position. We both enjoy the traditional menu and excellent, warm service. We recommend the Sea Bass.

Unbelievable selection of entrees and all fantastic. Try the fish cooked in a paper bag. Great service and a large wine selection.

Dined here recently and enjoyed a delicious salad followed by the linguine with white clam sauce. Absolutely no room for dessert even they sounded enticing Food was excellent, staff were professional and charmingly attentive, enjoyed it immensely. I look forward to returning someday.

Have eaten here several times, most recently last evening. Never disappoints! I lived in Italy for three years and can say with no hesitation that this is the real deal. Amazing and varied menu, perfectly prepared dishes and huge selection of wines. Enjoyed the veal ossobucco last evening. Absolutely delicious. I look forward to my next visit to Ristorante Bonaroti!
