First visit. Loved it. Food some of the best I've eaten in a restaurant. Will be going back.
Wonderful restaurant. Gorgeous food, lovely atmosphere and great service.
A pleasant lunch. Good value with great service and very good food ...
Fantastic restaurant. They have a varied menu of great dishes. All fresh and cooked to perfection. The service is really good and the food is reasonably priced. I would recommend this lovely restaurant to anyone who appreciates good quality food.
Have been to Buonissimo's several times over quite a few years and have always enjoyed the experience of dining there. Staff are friendly and always go out of their way to make your experience there the best it could be. Food is always of a high standard. Love Buonissimo's .
A lovely place with a nice friendly family appeal serving genuine Italian dishes at reasonable prices
The host was great - directed straight to our table upstairs, even though it was busy, we didn't feel squashed in. The waitresses were great and knowledgeable, suggested an Italian wine 'Serre' which was fantastic. Great food at great prices. They even sung happy birthday to my Mother in Law.
Lovely restaurant will definitely go back again. Only downfall tables are quite close to each other. Food was delicious. Service impeccable. Definitely worth a visit.
Superb family restaurant with great atmosphere, excellent food and a really warm welcome. Small but superb wine list. Great for birthday and anniversary celebrations
Birthday meal for our student daughter, booked based on previous reviews. We weren’t disappointed: authentically Italian, great service, lovely food, not fancy, just delicious.
I had the oxtail ragu with gluten free pasta and no cheese. The ragu was rich and tasty, I added more seasoning. The dish however was not hot enough. I do appreciate the staff making sure with me about my dietary requirements.
I also had the grilled vegetable side as a starter which was fine though the leaves were bitter which is not to my taste and I added balsamico for better flavour.
The service was attentive and quick at 6pm on Sat. The chairs are a bit hard and a bit cold sitting near window - not cosy in cold weather but I imagine lovely in warmer weather.
But I think it is a good independent Italian restaurant to visit in Birmingham.
Excellent food and service. Staff were friendly and attentive throughout. Fabulous choice of food.
The mushroom soup was very salty, the cod couscous was also over-flavoured, the salad which had been requested as being very plain had paprika sprinkled round the plate & on the salad, the risotto was also over-flavoured & lacking in fresh ingredients, the waiters were not too good at understanding English. All in all a very disappointing experience
Buonissimo is always outstanding, no matter what the occasion
Buonissimo continues to fulfil it's role as an outstanding neighbourhood restaurant. Service and food are always great. It's sometimes a bit noisy, but that's part of its attraction.
We have been to a few Italian restaurants but this was really really nice, friendly staff, service was very
good, and i would recommend this to any one, we said we would go back in a few months time as they
said they would have salmon on the menu. They even sang happy birthday.
Great food & service was Suberb . Had a brilliant evening celebrating my sisters silver wedding anniversary . Would definitely recommend.
We ate at Buonissimo a few years ago and were looking forward to returning for our son's birthday. Unfortunately it was a disappointment. Starters were good but the mains poor. Fillet steak had an unpleasant taste and was swimming in a thin gravy. The swordfish steak was thin, overcooked and soggy, and also swimming in an unpleasant thin gravy. The potato wedges were like the basic frozen variety.
We were booked on to the early sitting on a Saturday night and it all felt a bit rushed. The restaurant seems to have crammed in a few more tables in since our last visit and our tiny table could barely fit our meals on.
Won't be returning.
Pleasant atmosphere and food and wine great ss always!
Excellent food, service and ambience. We had a lovely time. The starters, mains and puddings were all very very good.
Downstairs looked more lively than where we sat upstairs. Of the six of us most enjoyed their food though i didn't. It wasn't really very 'Italian' but I'm sure it was much better than Zizzy across the road, in every way. For the money I expected better.
One of the best Italian Meals I've had. Everything was cooked perfectly, both of us really enjoyed every course. Service was good and not overly pushy. If I lived locally I would visit often. The wine (a blush) was good quality.
The Pudding sharer was amazing,so much variety and well made.
Simply wonderful food and service from Matteo and the team. The Summer menu has been sublime. Can't wait for the autumn menu when we return.
read reviews on tripadvisor, did not disappoint. value for money (early bird menu). tasty food, large portion. friendly staff and efficient service.
Amazing food. Lovely friendly staff. Good value for money.
I am never disappointed when I visit Buonissimo! It was as excellent as ever but the food was particularly good on this occasion.
An excellent visit to Buonissimo yet again! Suberb food and wine with very friendly service. It never fails to impress, I can thoroughly recommend.
Great place to eat great food service was very good
Had a nice meal with partner, food was nice, have had better there but maybe just a one off on this occasion. Pleasant evening, friendly staff and good attentive service.
We have never had a bad meal at Buonissimo and we have been coming for years. There is always a great welcome, the food is delicious and sensible portions. We love it!
Delicious food and great service in an energetic ambience.
Went there for an anniversary celebration. The staff were excellent. The starter was good but the bruschetta wasn’t very authentic. One of the two main meals was an Italian pasta but the sauce was black and tasted odd. The dessert was the best part and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Definitely the best Italian cucina in our neighbourhood. Have visited with special occasion or just for a regular lunch. Warm service and absolutely nice food every time. My humble recommendation.
Good food and great company what more do you need - Oh yes good service and the service was ok so the evening was a great success.
Visited for a special occasion, have eaten at Buonissimo a number of times in the past and always have a lovely experience. A warm welcome from Matteo and his staff started off the evening well. The summer menu had lots of choice, the crab cakes and black linguine were particularly tasty but it was hard to choose from the range on the menu. Great service along with wonderful food at realistic prices - a range of wines and other drinks are available. Great ambience. Can highly recommend a visit.
Wanted to try this restaurant for some time and the reviews were very good. However, We were all disappointed. Ambience was pleasant and the staff very friendly but the food was not great. Crab cakes over cooked and bready, swordfish strange consistency, chicken quite dull and all "lumped" on the plates. No finesse and far too quick! Pannacotta and ice cream good! Arrived at 7.30 and out by 8.30. Felt rushed. Will not return.
A genuine taste of Italy in the centre of Harborne. Well presented restaurant, delightful upper room, well -presented food.
Only problem for the less mobile are toilets on the first floor - 19 steps.
Friendly attentive staff - all in all a lovely experience.
The fish dish was excellent - cooked perfectly. Unfortunately the Risotto was a disappointment.
However a very pleasant evening al fresco.
Gorgeous will definitely be going back. Friendly staff great service excellent food
Good food, excellent service and friendly relaxed ambience
