I have been here many times with my family - it is always high quality food. The seafood is always excellently cooked and fresh. The management is super friendly and the ambiance is very nice too - there is lots of space. This restaurant is always a good choice.

The service was outstanding, and the food was incredible. The losbter fracaise was to dir for it melted in your mouth. Every app was delicious everything was cooked to perfection. If your looking for great food and outstanding service, make the reservation.

Stopped by this restaurant last Monday evening for dinner. The food I ordered was to say the least super! The waiters were very attentive and very friendly. Overall the service was A-plus.

Been here many times but not in a while. Place is very nice. Service is very good. Food is excellent. They also now have a cigar lounge which I will definitely check out my next visit. Place can get busy especially if there is a show at the Count Basie but its worth it.

Portions are very large, food is excellent, cannot go wrong with any item on the menu, and prices are reasonable. Restaurant is right next to Count Basie (so easy to walk to your show). One of the best restaurants in Red Bank, a must go!

My colleague and I were in town for business and found ourselves at this fine establishment. We shared the walnut and gorgonzola salad and each ordered a pork roast entree. We were both satisfied with the meal and enjoyed the lively ambience. I'd highly recommend any of the pork entrees. If there's anything bad to say, it's that they don't... More

We decided to return to Buona Sera after many years of trying out other venues. My husband and 2 lunch buddies enjoyed lunch here and so we booked for dinner. Easy parking in a nearby lot was a good start. Not much had changed since our last visit, probably over 10 years ago. Dated decor, background music definitely Italian themed... More
