Diner Reviews
  • "I had a good meal there on a fun night out with a colleague and a client. Our waiter was friendly and attentive and the buzz about the place was good. The only issue I have is with the pricing on the 22 oz tenderloin (this included the bone) which was on my bill at $120. I asked our waiter to provide a selection of appetizers and mains for my table to share. I don't recall him indicating the steak was $120 but maybe I wasn't paying attention. Maybe my bad but I would say that though it was a good chunk of meat, it was hardly worth that price."

  • "Had to wait quite a while upon arrival for anyone to pay attention to me although several employees looked my way. The salad was good but the meatballs were lukewarm and undercooked. Had to wait a while to have them reheated."

  • "I was expecting a good dining experience - and was delightfully surprised at just how good a dining experience could be - from being greeted to every aspect of the dining experience - I was very pleased."

  • "Good ambience and overall a fun time but it was just way too overpriced for the portions received. The wine was awful (perhaps not at the right temperature, so it tasted bad) and we only had the option to purchase 5oz glasses (which were extremely overpriced compared to other restaurants in Toronto). The food was great but too expensive for the value offered. When most people go out, they want to feel satisfied that their money was well spent. Here, the price to portion ratio doesn't allow someone to feel satisfied, but ripped off."

  • "From the moment I entered , my eyes were feasting on the gorgeous wait staff, decadent upscale surroundings and the hip bar. The menu was fabulous and they had a few daily additions which we went for. Food was exceptional and our party ordered five different appetizers, plus four mains all unique and two deserts. We were able to sample a wide range of items on the menu and all were outstanding! Special note was the addition of a (burrata) fresh cheese of the day, we ordered the medium portion which came on a cheese board over a bed of prosciutto, some nuts and thin garlic crostini. The gnocchi is heavanly, the veal chop spectacular! This is a must try and return to restaurant!"

  • "Excellent food and ambiance. Short on offerings of wine by the glass. Ample vegetarian options."

  • "Buonanotte isn't the sort of restaurant I typically frequent — hyper-glitzy, with a gaudy gold-lattice ceiling and staff who look like they've been pulled from the pages of a modelling agency — but I was really impressed by the quality of the service we received. Our food was quite good — a pair of pizzas, some gelato, meatballs and salad as an appetizer — but the night was made memorable by the speed and care we received from our waitress, who was always ready to top up a water glass or pull some plates away without looming over our table. Buonanotte is a good choice for those who like Italian food and don't mind a little flash."

  • "My wife and I had a terrific time on valentines day. The service was incredible. Emily the waitress knew the menu, gave great insights on what she liked and was knowledgeable about the wine. You water glass is never empty which i like, table is always cleaned promptly and there is plenty of time between courses. The meatballs were to die for. Moist, tender and tasty to start. The caprese salad was alright, but nothing compared to the meatballs. The mains were good, did not blow us away. The bombalini's (deep fried dough) with custard middle were also amazing! Great experience, we would go back!"

  • "This was our first but not our last visit to Buonanotte. It was a wonderful dining experience with Rafaella as our waitress. Everything she recommended was bang on. We ordered 2 appetizers and 2 entrees and it was delicious. Different from anything we've had anywhere else and so so good."

  • "The place is pretty neat, tidy and I love their decor/ambiance. Staffs are very friendly and accommodating. Food-wise, everything that we ordered is very tasty, however, it seems that their food servings, particularly the calamari and pasta that we ordered, are pretty small compared to the price they're worth."

  • "I had the tuna tartare and I must say that it was lacking in flavour. I also had the halibut and the fish was overcooked. My husband had one of the pizzas and he said it was ok. What was concerning is that we were there at 7:30 and the restaurant was just about empty. It is possible that is it more of a late-night spot and so that is the explanation. I had heard that this was a great restaurant ... having been there, I am not sure why."

  • "We enjoyed our dinner here - the food was good although it needed more seasoning. We had to salt everything. Our server was wonderful. She took a lot of time with us and helped us to choose some wines - even bringing tastes of 3 different wines when we told her what we were looking for. We had an early dinnner and it was quiet when we arrived but picked up a lot by the time we left."

  • "We went to this restaurant for a late lunch, so I won't comment on the ambience or noise level. Having said that, it definitely gives off a vibe of being a hangout more than a place to get good food. The food was mediocre. The apps were probably the best thing we ordered on the menu. Good calamari and potato croquettes. Every one of the 7 of us served said their main course wasn't good or bland at best."

  • "Went on Saturday for bf birthday dinner. Pizza was amazing but main entrees we weren't to impressed with. The desserts and coffees were fabulous and they even decorated the dessert with happy birthday which was nice. The decor was nice and out waitress was fabulous but didn't like how they were still setting the restaurant up when we were there for dinner at 6:30."

  • "Picked this restaurant as it is near when I was staying. Excellent service. pasta slightly pricey, but the food was excellent. Would recommend it."

  • "Food was OK. Terrible service. Server refilled glasses with bottled water without being prompted thus racking up unnecessary charges. When the beer we selected was unavailable the server brought us already opened beer not on the menu that was more expensive. We were not even asked or informed that the beer was more expensive. The washrooms smelled terrible. Would not recommend to anyone."

  • "They have an Italian Sommelier, direct from Milan that was most helpful & interesting...and very knowledgeable Servers that were highly attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere. We would definitely go back."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "Waitress left the restaurant half way through the meal without saying a word. Polenta/sausage was not seasoned. Confused by cold peppers served with the striploin. Meatballs and spaghetti pomodoro was the highlight."
    Dined on 11/14/2013
  • "While the food was fine and the wine list included many great Italian bottles, we could not get past the fact that the wait staff were all stick thin, long haired beauties in their early twenties who embodied a very distinct body type. Does this restaurant want to be taken seriously for its food and wine? Or is it a show piece for skinny model-type servers? And when a diner is told that they are not allowed to offer fresh ground pepper for the pizza, well that really puts the whole experience into a new category. Seriously?"
    Dined on 11/14/2013
  • "We dined here prior to a show at the ACC. The service was attentive. We were not rushed. enjoyed cocktails at the bar before sitting, they were excellent! We tried a variety of dishes from the menu, all suitable to sharing. Food was good, one preference was the salt in the bolognese, way to much for my palette. The wine was excellent. Price was very reasonable."

  • "A group of friends went out to celebrate one of our birthdays last Friday night. Every single person in our party was told that we had to be out of our table by 9:30 since we were the first seating - not the nicest first impression. Not to mention we didn't even get a chance to order until about 8. The service is extremely inconsistent, our waitress didnt' tell us any of the specials, the sommelier - or whoever he was - brought us warm bottles of white and couldn't seem to figure out how to properly chill them. The only employee that had any sort of personality was the guy that brought us our bread! The food is okay, far too overpriced for the quality."
