What is Buono?
Buono is a plate of homemade pasta in the middle of the night. Buono is grandma's recipe made by the grandchildren. Buono is staying together for a while. Buono is the flavour of a tomato, It's the smell of basil leaves, It's the rawness of olive oil. Buono is an espresso at the end of a meal. Buono is cooking with lifelong friends. Buono is the taste of home. Buono is a long standing tradition in a brief lunch! Buono is simple. It's authentic. It's smart. It's Italian. BUONO IS GOOD!
Food was pretty tasty! Wouldnt recommend pizza- too bready
Always ask about the specials. Pasta is very good and the staff very helpful and attentive. Don't forget to leave room for the tiramisu
Overall, food and pricing is fair. It’s nothing that will “wow” you. They try to pull off as traditional Italian. I will say the service we got was not the best. Rude and a little condescending. My partner and I did think he had a little attitude- not friendly at all. Not much room for accommodation or anything extras. Obviously we would’ve paid for extras but not many options like that. Prices are fair considering portion size. Overall, I’d suggest another restaurant in the hundreds of others in Toronto. Or perhaps another location.
Bolognese and pesto were both excellent.
This place is beautiful! The food was absolutely delicious, and the service was excellent. Super recommended!
The food was incredible and our server was so friendly. We had cacio e pepe, pesto gnocchi and tiramisu and we would definitely return to have the same meals again!
food was okay. Great service tho!
Delicious and authentic.
Great food with great pricing. They had some awesome beers as well. Definetly worth it. Would return for lunch!
Its a very cute patio! Portions are a little small and prices are slightly high but it is a good place if you are just looking for something to try out! I would still recommend for sure
Wonderful Pasta with great service. Not my first time and will continue to enjoy BUONO!
The carbonara was amazing 👌🏽
Fantastic food for a great price. Very kind staff who offer stellar recommendations.
The food was delicious, presented well, and the server was friendly and warm.
Amazing food, great service on the patio. Will be back again.
Cacio & Pepe was the standout dish.
Meatballs were good, and so was the caprese salad.
Carbonara was fabulous. Service was excellent. I’ll be back
Would recommend BUONO
Food and service were great
Spectacular value. Went before a concert at The Horseshoe because we wanted something quick, but this would work for any occasion. Food was AMAZING.
I originally picked this restaurant because of an image circulating social media of their carbonara pasta. This dish paled in comparison to the other dishes we had. We had the verde salad, meatballs, grilled vegetables, carbonara pasta, cacio pepe pasta, eggplant lasagna and tiramisu for dessert. The Cacio & Pepe and eggplant (which isn't fried making this a big bonus) lasagna and tiramisu were outstanding. I would definitely go back and try whatever else I missed on the menu!
Buono was the perfect dinner spot. The carbonara and tiramisu were DELICIOUS, the staff were really friendly, and the restaurant is beautiful. I'd definitely go again.
It was great the servers were Italian and we’re very knowledgeable. They even spoke to my mother in italian which she loved.
Amazing food! Can’t wait to go back. The pasta is to die for
Awesome service!! Amazing food!! Pesto sauce was so good!!
Amazing food and excellent service. We were a group of 11 for lunch and we stayed for 3hrs bc it was all so great
The food was excellent as usual. My favourite italian restaurant in Toronto
Simply the best pasta in town. You have to go here.
I you love pasta then you’ll love this place. The pasta is freshly made every day and the sauces are awesome and tasty. Only small so make a reservation but wow it was awesome.
Oh, and try the tiramisu.....just try it!
Spectacular pasta aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
It was fine. Need a few more wine selections or at least a couple special bottle ‘just in case’ someone wants to spend more money.
Simple and Good
Homemade feel and taste.
Food was great and incredibly delicious, although the portions are a little small for "Toronto" size. Would hope that their pasta dishes were a little bit bigger. Tiramisu was amazing, so dont forget to order that! Our server was very nice and made us enjoy our time there.
In one word AMAZING.
Highly HIGHLY RECOMMEND the tiramisu!!!
My carbonara arrived a bit cold, or perhaps it was because I had to wait for both of my friend’s dishes to come out. I also found it a bit too eggy for my liking but I enjoyed the texture of the homemade pasta. The service was great though, and I thought the portion of food for the price was fair. There weren’t too many guests inside the restaurant, so the space itself somehow makes it hard to hear the person next to you, unless the music was just too loud. I would go back to try another dish.
The food is excellent and the staff is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
We went to BUONO for a work dinner with about 15 people. Even with a lot of us there, the servers were very efficient and the food came quickly. The menu isn’t very expansive, but every dish we had was delicious and felt very authentic. Overall a great dinner and will definitely be coming back!
Food was very small portions and very bland. The drinks were ridiculously expensive. $3 for a can of sprite? Really?? Wine was also very expensive. Will not return and do not recommend.
The food is authentic Italian (northern). The portions are European (small compared to American sized, which for me is a good thing). I am Italian and spoke to the waiter in Italian- he was very nice and helpful. His English isn't great but he's learning! He recommended the carbonara which was excellent! The tiramisu was very good as well. I would definitely return.
Great little spot and patio for an afternoon lunch. Food was delicious and the service impecable.
Overall excellent experience. Food was delicious, authentic, and extremely good value. All servers were extremely attentive to us and our server even treated us to small tasters of dessert and digestif. The gnocchi with porcini mushrooms is unbelievable. Highly recommend!!
