Buonanotte is the place for those wishing to experience the charm, style, flair and grace the city has to offer on its most vibrant and cosmopolitan boulevard.

Diner Reviews

  • "My girlfriend and I went to Montreal for a girl's weekend. Buonanotte was highly recommended. We sat outside and the service and food were outstanding. Special thanks to Camille who went above and beyond to ensure we had a great night out."

  • "Overall: disappointing after reading all the good reviews. Maybe we caught a bad night. It's kind of odd to complain about the unbelievably slow and erratic service at Buonanotte since when the food finally came we wished they had taken a while longer to prepare it properly. This place is long on atmosphere--a very loud room and very attractive long-legged wait staff--but short on cuisine. The food is unimaginative and prepared as if by rote. This is someone's "idea" of Italian food. But not really Italian food. More like what you'd want airline food to be. Then it would be passable."

  • "I've not previously rated an OT restaurant with good food and service at 2 stars overall, but the whole non-dining experience of dealing with this place left a bad taste. 4 hours before my reservation they call informing me that I only had the table for 2 hours and wouldn't I rather sit on the sidewalk. No. Arriving at the restaurant 10 minutes early, I checked in by name--again refused sidewalk seating--and had a good meal with good service. Afterwards, I looked at my phone and saw the restaurant had called me twice during my >$200 meal. Stopping at the hostess stand on my way out I asked why she had called and the same woman who had seated me said, "You never showed up for your reservation." Then the OT email saying I failed to show up..."

  • "Well known for the visual appeal of their attendants, one should note they also provide a friendly and professional service. A great mixture of "bon pour les yeux et l'estomac"."

  • "Excellent service and great food. it is a recommended stop for a reason."

  • "I really loved the service, food and ambiance at this restaurant; the wait staff was very attentive. Our waitress didn't miss a beat, my wine glass was always full. But, it was disappointing, we felt a lil rushed...did not give us a chance to order dessert! We were celebrating my boyfriend's birthday, which I indicated in the reservation, so that made more disappointing. Besides this little oversight, great restaurant."

  • "Favourite restaurant right now. I only started going there because my friends started working there and it's my favourite place, whenever a friend visits buona is the first restaurant I take them to. Amazing food, filet mignon, pasta, shrimps and carpaccio are my favourite as well as the Nutella doughnuts for dessert. "

  • "The food was absolutely amazing but our waitress was extremely rude."

  • "the food, ambiance and service was great. enjoyed a couple of pasta dishes - pasta was fresh, gnocchi light and the sauces on both tasted fresh and simple. the ambiance was a bit of a throw back but cool - i expected john travolta to walk out at any time. the servers - omg - they were beautiful, sexy and very friendly; if i wasn't in my 50s i would have started a weight routine the next day to buff myself up for the next visit. great fun, excellent food and a joy for the eyes - what more could you ask of a restaurant. well done!!"

  • "My wife and I came from Ottawa to MTL for Valentine's Day and boy were we happy we decided to go to Buonanotte. The entire experience was perfect. Although we've come to expect two seatings on valentine's day, meaning the first get hurried out, this was not the case here. We were able to relax, take in the atmosphere, enjoy the awesome appetizers and savour our wine slowly. Our meals were great too -- my seafood risotto was AMAZING! Great job Buonanotte!"

  • "Although the ambience and the service was good, the food was not good and way too pricey for what it was."

  • "Great service! Love their pizza! Super friendly staff! Will be back when I visit Montreal again."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "Small menu, big cocktail and wine menu and food was mediocre at best. Popular with men as the waitresses are all blonde and buxom and it caters to the nigh crowd so perhaps they should just serve pizza as even their basic pasta dish was not very good. Fish portion was small and oily and particularly tasty. Do not recommend it for anyone who likes good food."
    Dined on 10/21/2013
  • "Our waitress first tried to get us to overspend by taking away the menus and saying "let me just order for you". Thankfully, we said "no thank you" and ordered from the menu. As soon as double of everything we ordered started appearing at the table, we stopped the servers and said we only ordered one of each appetizer to which the waitress returned to the table to say "oh it's just one order, I split it into two plates to let you share." Needless to say we were billed 2x for every appetizer. When I complained about the bill, she said "one of each of those appetizers wouldn't have been enough for you." ~$100 overcharged and totally ripped off. Do not go here. The food is lacking in taste and the staff is terrible."

  • "Based on many positive reviews for this restaurant we decided to try this restaurant for our girls weekend in Montreal. Our reservation was for 7:30. We ordered food and drinks, once our meal had finished our waitress promptly gave us our bills. No problem, we paid and continued to finish our drinks. The next thing we know our waitress is kicking us out because "the next reservation is here" and proceed to literally remove everything from the table while we were sitting there. There was no mention beforehand that we had a limit seating time or a warning 30 minutes before we had to leave. The waitress came up and actually kicked us out while we still had glasses of wine left. Very disappointing."
    Dined on 9/21/2013
  • "All in all the experience was maybe a 5 out of 10. The service was not great. Our waitress was very rude. Brought us the wrong appetizer and tried to convince us it's what we ordered. Fought us on the fact that she was right, not us. The entrees were not great. They we over prices and very small portions. It was hard to even flag her down to get more rounds of drinks. There were only two of us. The waitress quickly changed her tone when we started ordering expensive bottles of champagne. Being from Toronto the Buonanotte here was much better. I expected to have the same experience. Montreal has many many more fabulous restaurants to choose from, I wouldn't waste your time or money going here"
    Dined on 9/1/2013
  • "The food was good, the service was not so great. I was a little disappointed in the service we got, we had to remind them a few times to bring drinks and water. Our table was too small and made the experience seem very cramped and rushed."

  • "I don't know if the waitress was new, but everything went wrong, from the beginning to the end!"

  • "For a second visit, me and my girlfriend had a very good experience in this restaurant, more than the first one last year ! Food, drinks and desserts were very good and a special mention for the service !"
    Dined on 6/28/2013
  • "Dinner started off great, food and service was good. However because we booked the first sitting, we had to leave and come back when the restaurant turned into a club. So they added our names to the reservation list for bottle service. At 11:30, we were told that dinner service was running late and to come back at 12:15. At 12:15, there was a massive crowd outside the restaurant and the bouncer said he will check on our table. 45 minutes later, we were told that we wouldn't be getting a table and we won't be getting in. On top of this, I was charged twice for the same meal on my credit card and my friend was overcharged...In sum, poorly organized. Go to the Globe which is just across the street, I had a much better experience there."

  • "Delisciously good and authentic Italian fare, good service + ambiance!"
    Dined on 5/7/2013
  • "This place was absolutely amazing! The only thing our group did not like was the fact that you HAD to buy bottles in order to keep your table; otherwise, you stand. Very very packed place also. Went to the bar to grab regular drinks and stood there for twenty minutes with no service."
    Dined on 4/20/2013
  • "I made a reservation for 2 one week in advance, which was confirmed by the restaurant by phone on the day. However, when my guest and I arrived, there was a mixup and we were told that a mistake had been made because the restaurant was FULL of 100 clients for a private event. I insisted on waiting for our table, and we were graciously given 2 complementary glasses of champagne + a nice private table on the other side within 10 minutes. Our waiter was a true foodie and very knowledgeable and wonderful to us. In the end, we had a very enjoyable evening, delicious food, and excellent service. Highly recommended."

  • "Service was disorganized and waitstaff was a bit snobby."
    Dined on 3/31/2013
  • "I went with a group of 6 girls and when we got there we were quite satisfied with the place! The server offered us some shots in the beginning because it was one of our birthdays so they did it on the house! After that, we ordered our good, she brought it and never again showed up! The waitresses here are extremely good looking so they are very concerned with getting tips from a table full of men! The tables beside us and in front of us were groups of men.. She would be back every 5 minutes to ask them if everything was okay while rubbing down one if their backs! I would raise my hand and nothing! Excellent place but I will never go back simply because of the service! Which is TERRIBLE"

  • "Although the food is very good, the interior is overdue for renovations."

  • "This place was recommended as one of Montreal's legendary hot spots. The bachelor party tables outnumbered the bachelorette party tables 3-1. Out of curiousity, we stayed to see the transformation from restaurant to nightclub. The dj was great and the drinks were good, but this club crowd was not my scene."
    Dined on 3/9/2013
  • "We had a great time! Our reservation was at 7:45 (early) and the place was very quiet, the game on the TVs.....quite the different ambiance than what we were expecting. Our wait staff was fantastic. I simply cannot say enough good things about them. As the evening progressed, the music got more intense, and then atmosphere went to supper club and then dance bar. By midnight, the tables were over to the side, and it was total club scene. For us, it's not an every day restaurant, but we'd go back in a heart beat for a special occasion dinner and night out."
    Dined on 2/23/2013
  • "Didn't enjoy my experience at Buonanotte with a group of my girlfriends. Menu did not present the food as actually appeared. Service was slow but the waitress was nice. Music was only good during the dinner part of the evening because during the club portion was very outdated and made me feel as though i was back in highschool. Would not recommenf to a group of 25 yr old girls!"

  • "My friends and I came to Montreal during the Family day weekend. A friend suggested we go to Buonanotte. The service was amazing. The staff and servers were very customer service focused. The food was amazing as well. I can't say that I have received this type of service in Toronto. Great place to visit with a group for dinner and if you decide to stick around it has a more lounge vibe. No cover, no cost for coat check, just impeccable service."

  • "Mid-priced but gorgous staff mitigates the cost. Smaller portions of excellent quality."
    Dined on 2/15/2013
  • "Dinner and service were spectacular. The music and scene after dinner, for some may be great, but it just wasn't for me. I had sent an email prior to attending for a description to better make my decision and the response from BN staff was a one worded answer that the place is amazing. I would have respected an honest, more detailed response. Overall, dinner was great, scene not so...probably would not go back."
