Menu was limited, although very traditional
Restaurant was noisy with a male party of 5 and one waitress was over friendly, not impressed with her flirty behaviour

We had an absolutely superb evening, service was impecable and friendly, food was out of this world,
we sat outside and the heaters kept us lovely and warm, we were so carried away it was gone midnight when we left. There was no pressure to finish or leave.

It was our first visit, why oh why did we leave it so long.
Excellent, friendly welcome, wonderful communicative staff and owner, all with a sense of fun. The place was full but the service and food were outstanding. We will be returning.

I love Buonissimo as they serve good quality food presented in an unpretentious way and the staff are attentive but not overly so. I like to be asked if everything is good with my food but only once!

This was an ok meal . Don’t know why we needed paprika sprinkled all over the edges of plates???
We took my elderly mother with poor mobility. Unfortunately no accessible toilet on ground floor. We had no choice but to try and get my mother up two flights of stairs. She found this extremely distressing and we had to cancel our planned trip to the park afterwards as she was so distressed. I do t know for sure but I thought I this day and age it was compulsory to have an accessible toilet in a restaurant?????

Went to Buonissimo for our joint birthday/date night as its one of our very favourite restaurants. Food and service are always consistently excellent, it's great value for an Italian restaurant and the choice of food is very unique - this is not a chain restaurant.

Will hopefully return very soon.

A long mid-week lunch with friends. Dined from the a la carte which was as good as ever. The pork belly was particularly nice, but friends thought well of the tuna too.
Everything served well with good attention to detail.

As always we were warmly greeted at the door, seated quickly and provided with aperitifs . After a decent pause we had an intelligent conversation with a young waiter about the wine and placed our food and wine orders. The food was exceptional . We concluded with fine cheeses, a good digestivo and a quality aged grappa and good coffees. A pleasant evening enhanced by the thoughtful attention of Matteo and his staff. I regularly bring friends and guests here and the experience is always good.

This was our second visit to Buonissimo. The staff are very pleasant & helpful. The food is excellent. The portions are generous & the price is reasonable. The restaurant did becom very noisy but that was down to a table of about 8 people that arrived & were exceptionally loud. You can’t blame the restaurant for that! We will definitely return.
