                          Our first visit since lockdown, Buonissimo was gratifyingly unchanged in its quality, service and value. We had opted for the early evening deal and both had a pasta dish followed by sea bass - both were excellent. It really is remarkable to enjoy food of this quality in such pleasant surroundings at such a reasonable price. Every visit is a special occasion.

                          Fabulous food and excellent service! This restaurant has been consistently excellent for some time. The Chef is outstanding, all waiting staff excellent and Matteo as 'front of house' is just brilliant. There is always a cheerful greeting and staff are very helpful in all aspects. This is a gem!! I recommend a visit as you will not be disappointed.

                          We go to Buonissimo Restaurant often and have missed it during lockdown. It is like going to visit friends at their home, very welcoming and and friendly. The food was fantastic as usual, and a good range of wines. I have recommended this restaurant to friends who keep going back.

                          I have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions and cannot fault the food, however one of the female waitresses is very surly and unpleasant and has great difficulty in smiling. I have encountered this waitress before and thought she was having a bad day, but after my last visit I now believe this is how she always is. It’s such a shame as it did spoil the ambience.

                          A most delightful meal at Bounissimo's! I treated my son to a belated 21st birthday meal, which, as always, was fabulous! My son enjoyed both a his starter and main course, which upon tasting was delicious (mussels for his Starter, and squid with ink risotto for his Mains). I had the Bruchetta with a whole head of roast garlic, and then the chicken in Masala sauce with mushrooms. The service was impeccable and the team sang happy birthday to Alex. I absolutely love this Italian restaurant and have consistently recommended it to friends and family! Fabulous! 😍

                          Another excellent dining experience. Our second in a month. During that time, the menu had changed and we thoroughly enjoyed the new pasta and fish dishes available on the early bird menu, This is a really good deal. This restaurant is a gem.
