Fantastic food and service as always !!!
Excellent atmosphere and very reasonably priced, only negative was we could smell smoke from outside whilst we were eating due to them smoking right by the Bi-fold doors however this did not spoil the night and was inevitable due to the heat. Have used this restaurant for many years and will continue to do so.

We were hosting friends from Nottingham for a Midweek Lunch and we always try and visit a different venue each year. May we say that this restaurant was up there with the very best both in terms of menu choice, quality and service to match. We found the ambience buzzing and was surprised how busy the restaurant was considering it was Midweek. An indication of the success of this restaurant.

What impressed us the most was the excellent service by Matteo and his team, an element which is sadly lacking in the UK. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable lunch and highly recommended.

Booked the table to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. We were seated in the upstairs dining area, and the new summer menu had just been introduced. Good choice of starters and mains. Like how you can choose half portion of some of the mains as your starter. Slightly spoilt by our waitress obviously knowing the (regular?) customers at the next table, so she spend more than 10 minutes taking to them, having forgotten to get my soft drink (I was the driver). This aside, we had an enjoyable evening, and at the end my daughter was given a complimentary desert, complete with a candle, and the staff sang happy birthday to her. Good experience, highly recommend this restaurant.

Thoroughly enjoyed our early evening meal here. Very relaxed atmosphere although the service was friendly and attentive. We were the first customers of the evening but the restaurant soon filled up. The food was excellent and good sized portions.

I visit this restaurant about 3 times a year, and have done so for many years. The food has always been very, very good, and the staff pleasant, efficient and accommodating. It is nice to visit somewhere that is not part of a chain. Only downside is that the only available parking is expensive as the restaurant does not have its own being just off a busy high street. The menu changes seasonally which is an added bonus.

Excellent quality food, really recommend the set menu (available before 7.30pm). Three delicious courses, and a very drinkable house white wine. Very friendly and accommodating staff too.

Buonissimo is a favourite of mine and have enjoyed visits here for a number of years. Food is excellent and service always friendly and welcoming. Menu is changed seasonally so you can visit throughout the year knowing that there will be variations to the menu. Thoroughly recommend and already looking forward to my next visit!

It was a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. Starters were lovely, but the mains were quite plain and uninspiring.
Dessert and coffee were not too bad and the it was a reasonable price.
However, not sure I would frequent again.
