    The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Waiter was very informative about items on the menu and specials board. Parking was good. Will definitely return.

    Second time I’ve been to Buono for lunch and it was great. This time I tried the ‘special’ pasta which was fettuccine with oxtail ragu and a pea purée. My friend had the gnocchi. Both dishes were lovely. I would highly recommend going!

    First time going to Buono (group of 4) for lunch and we’d go again. There were a few other diners but it was relatively quiet. The service and food were great. We ordered off the express lunch menu ($30 for main and a wine or soft drink) as well as the a la carte menu - lasagna x2, lamb ragu pasta which was one of the specials, and a crumbed pork filet. Some other diners ordered a couple of cocktails which looked yummy! We’d go for dinner next time and would recommend it.

    One of the best Italian restaurants in a local area that I’ve been to in a while. All options we selected surprised us with how fantastic they tasted, although the description was spot on! Their seafood linguine took me to new places. The staff were all friendly, accomodating, and knowledgeable of the origin of their food & wine. Will go back in a heart beat.

    Our second visit and this time for dinner. This is becoming one of our favorite restaurants and is increasing their patronage with the locals due to their great food and impecable service. Do yourself a favour and get down for a great Italian meal!!

    We booked a table for a family birthday celebration. The food was great. We tried a range of pasta, steak, fish of the day and salads. All dishes were excellent. We especially loved the desserts. The coconut mousse is to die for. Loved finishing off the evening wth a limoncello. Perfect place for an intimate family celebration.

    This is a terrific restaurant with great, friendly staff and an interesting menu. Recent changes to the menu in line with the changing seasons have continued their successes. Great combinations of flavours and generally difficult to choose between old favourites and new choices! We are regulars and have never had a disappointment!

    Delicious mushroom gnocchi. A solid wine list. Homemade gelato. Great service. This is a new local restaurant and we will be back. We ate here during the week and it was busy but not too noisy.

    A wonderful local Italian - the quality of the food is excellent, the wine list is good and the service is personal and attentive. Perhaps more pricey than your average Italian, but it’s worth it for the authentic and imaginative flavours.

    This restaurant is great fun. The food is very interesting and always so tasty and the wine list has lovely Italian wines by the bottle and glass as well as Australian. Staff are friendly and attentive.

    We are very happy to have this good quality restaurant in Parkdale. If the noise level was a little lower the restaurant would be even better. Despite the slightly high noise level we think restaurant is fantastic - the owners are terrific, food is always good and service is high quality. Ron and Dianne

    Food and service were first class for a local restaurant. Can be a little noisy and seated quite close together, however, you do get used to that.
