The last of a weekend’s long celebration of my mom’s birthday. It was a perfect end to a perfect list of Birthday activities.

My wife and I just scoped it out on Open Table because we were in the area and were hungry. Based upon the decor we were having second thoughts about our choice - until the food came. We had some of the best grilled octopus ever! The seafood salad was very good and we shared a seafood pasta marina special that was actually kinda “special”. Everything was fresh and the sauce was amazing. The service was warm and friendly. We’ll be back.

Food was delicious, service excellent. We even came with an extra person in our party, and they were quick to accommodate us on a busy day. Looking forward to going back.

Disappointed with Mother's Day menu. Usually food and ambience is much better on a regular day. No items from regular menu were on special menu.

1. if you charge a FEE for people to use credit cards then dont take it OR tell the customer when they sit down the policy. - as a business owner myself i find this practice VERY distasteful on the part of the owner!

2. woman employee - i see her coming out of the kitchen so i say "excuse me" - she sees me (looks right at me. Goes back into the kitchen comes out with a newspaper so she can stand by the counter and read. so i say excuse me ?! - finally comes over doesnt apologize -

3. busboy/helper - man was not a waiter, did bus the tables but also sat customers down when they arrived - so he had many jobs. - he actually came up to my table to ask me if he could take away my oil and vinegar while am having my meal! - I was once a waitress and let me tell you that is something you do not do!

4. the quality of the food and the price do not match up at all. - I tried the steak that was recommended to me by my waiter. - I asked waiter to recommended what is this place known for? whats good ? what popular? - not something that would make me come back

5. this place slow had people walking in but after exploring the neighborhood this place does not seem to have a lot or any competition. - perhaps business opportunity for others

2ND time and not as thrilled. Different server made the experience a negative. Looked at his watch when seated to see if we were within the lunch special time frame. Indeed...I was. Was not offered bread but I asked when our adjacent table had bread. Failed to offer the dessert that came with our lunch; had to ask for it. Needed to remind server to refill coffee. When check came I was told not accepting credit card! Why? since I paid with credit card last time and there is no sign. Told "machine was not working". I NEVER pay cash....don't carry cash. I managed to have enough cash to cover with my friend helping out.

The service was very accommodating without being pretentious.
The food was quite delicious and served in healthy portions. We both loved the veal parmigiana- well prepared, tasty sauce and cooked just right.
The value was great. The biscotti that was served at the end of the meal was homemade and a real treat. Had expected something that could break my teeth, but this was like a perfect light, flavorful cookie.
Definitely recommend it and will go back.

Always delicious food and good service at Buon! I had the grilled octopus which was perfection and the shrimp scampi over linguini which was really tasty. For dessert my party of 8 all had gelato and it was delicious.

The staff was very friendly and personable.Alena who was our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. We had a minor issue and the person who appeaed to be the floor manager named Asia took care of the issue immediately no questions asked. The food was delicious. The girl behind the counter helped us choose a dessert. They had more than a handful of choices. I would definitely come back.

Great value; wide selection and delicious grilled octopus (and calamari). Service needs to be more professional; casual and inattentive.

Visited for our Anniversary with wife and kids. Food selection was great for adults and children. Very nice setting. Great food; had the swordfish came with great sides- grilled eggplant and Mediterranean potatoes. Wife enjoyed penne w/ vodka- I sampled and have to say one of my favorite vodka sauce I've ever had. Service was excellent as well. Will definitely return.
