As usual, the restaurant was busy and buzzy. Nevertheless, waiting times were short and the staff polite and efficient.
Food was very good; full of flavour and well-presented.

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.

A little on the dark side upstairs but overall fantastic. That’s the only negative thing I have to say at all. Wonderful restaurant and service. Food is without fail always so scrumptious.

We are regulars and so were keen to support this excellent restaurant during the current troubles. The food is always imaginative and generous with frequently changing menus to entice you for a regular visit. The early evening menu suits us very well and we easily found enough to satisfy us, the chicken breast and cod loin main courses being particularly noteworthy. Service was discreet and covid aware and a pleasing ambience of normality prevailed. We count ourselves lucky to have such an excellent restaurant within reach.

Excellent value for money and the usual friendly, efficient service. We had the lunch menu and both starter and main were delicious and just the right portion size. Recommend the Sicilian white Emporio wine. This is our 'local', and we are never disappointed.

We came out for an anniversary meal and we were definitely not disappointed. The food was sensational, and the service was fantastic. All our servers knew where our order was and how we were, they also had knowledge of each item on the menu to help us pick what we would want

Great atmosphere, small and intimate with friendly and helpful staff, giving fast and efficient service.

Our meal was to celebrate an anniversary and we were not disappointed. Food was cooked to perfection and still hot ( sometimes we find that food temperatures have dropped once served). There is a good choice on the menu and the vegetarian options were excellent. A good bottle of wine to go with everything and we were very happy bunnies.

If you like Italian food, this is a must go to restaurant. Thanks to the staff at Buonissimo for a perfect end to our day.

Normally a very nice place to eat. However the late table booking we had meant that we felt a bit forgotten about. Food quality wasn’t as good as previous trips and they had to switch some ingredients in the risotto due to availability and as a result it was pretty rubbish.

Will try again some other time.

We have never had a bad meal or experience at Buonissimo, everything is always lovely. It's nice going to a local, independent restaurant on the high street. Food and staff are excellent and very well priced for such good quality service
