We had not been to Buonissimo for some time, but were very glad we returned. We celebrated a birthday and was extremely pleased with both the service and the excellent food. We shall be returning again soon. I fully recommend the restaurant.

By far the best pork belly dish I have ever had, with the very best crackling.
Staff were lovely and the ambience perfect.

First time I had been to this restaurant. We took our 74 year old friend for his birthday and we were treated wonderfully. The food was great and the staff were so generous with their time and professionalism.
Definitely be going again.

A substantial choice of authentic Italian cuisine enjoyed in a friendly relaxed environment.

We didn’t mean to stay 2 hours but how time flies when you are tasting your way through your menu and everyone else’s!

Family run restaurant with kind thoughtful friendly but unobtrusive attention to their guests

THANK YOU

A very cosy restaurant with exceptional service. The dishes were delicious and the ambiance well remembered. My partner had her birthday that day and the staff sang to her, which was a welcoming surprise. On top of that we got a complimentary glass of dessert wine each to end the night in the best way possible.

We visited as a party of four for a quiet meal. It was a very cold night and we did feel the draft from the door, particularly as several diners kept going outside for cigarettes as well as those arriving and leaving. Food was well cooked and enjoyable and arrived in good time. We had a sharing starter and there was plenty. Our individual main courses were very nice and we all enjoyed them. One person had the cheese platter for dessert and we also had coffees.

We did have to ask again for one of our drinks as only three arrived. After waiting about fifteen minutes we realised that they had forgotten the fourth drink so asked the waitress for it. It was then brought quickly with apologies for the delay.

A nice meal out and we are likely to visit again.

We were a university student, mother and grandmother celebrating our reunion and hoped to avoid drunken big City pre-Christmas parties by going to this small local restaurant. We could not have been luckier - it has a wonderful cosy ambience, the decor is simple but appealing and the service is charming. The food is excellent - generous but not over-large portions of interesting and delicious dishes and the wines are a little out of the ordinary. The food was good value and we will definitely be heading back there. It would be the sort of local where you would be warmly welcomed.

We wanted to eat in Harborne for a friends' get together and found this restaurant on Google. Reviews were good. Chose the early bird menu and expected small portions. Not many choices - 3 or 4 but what we picked was substantial and very tasty. Wine was very reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and attentive. A great find and will be revisiting.

Attractive restaurant. Very welcoming staff who were attentive and efficient. Delicious food and good wine list. I telephoned ahead to ask for a quiet table and the manager couldn't have been more accommodating. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and when I'm next in Birmingham I hope to go there again.
