Visiting the area on a trip for our 20th anniversary, we had a delightful dinner at Tempo. Our waiter (Joe) was friendly and helpful, the restaurant was clean and elegant-yet-comfortable. The food was quite delicious, especially the tortellini made from scratch.

Many hotels in the Buffalo area, with many within 15-20 mn car ride. It's very easy to get around this area. Easiest thing is to just google hotels around that area. We actually stayed out by the airport and it was still... More
