This restaurant sold about 6 months ago, so disregard any reviews before that time. We went on a Saturday night - bad idea - they have a saxophone jazz musician - he plays so loud that you cannot hear across the table - his music...More

My husband and I visited Buona Sera a few weeks after they remodeled. Well, not really sure what got remodeled and why - but the food sure got hit too... So first of all, they were out of most of their wines and the bartender...More

The location is great and really for an Italian restaurant it should not go wrong. We were there 5 days ago. The place was quiet. They forgot to take our order, and then we got a pizza that was really late and undercooked. The workers...More

Wow it is amazing this place is in business. After almost walking away because we couldn't find a host, we finally got seated in the midst of what seemed like a rock concert. It was extremely noisy. The food was horrible and expensive. I had...More
