    For the most part it was good, however our calamari was overcooked, our flounder was overcooked, the mashed potatoes were watery and served on a plate instead of a nice bowl. The service was very good and the ambience was nice but there are a few missteps they should take care of.......

    Food excellent! Service good. With reservations, four of us had to wait 15 min to be seated; the hostess seemed unconcerned. It looked to be a busy night.

    We had lunch there. The place was very clean and elegant - I never knew that restaurant was there. The food was very good and an excellent value. The service was good, however the waiter kept looking around as he recited the many items. There was no pepper/spices for the olive-oil that I would've appreciated. There weren't many folks there, but there was a private party in the side room that didn't affect us. The menu was quite diverse, however the "lunch specials" insert wasn't a "lunch bargain" insert - it wasn't clear if they were specials or bargains, the prices were all over the place - we just ordered from the regular items and enjoyed them. The bread was plentiful and fresh.

    An excellent experience. The wild mushroom salad was a standout, but the standard dishes like rack of lamb and fettuccine fruta di mare were superb.

    Dined on 10/1/2009
    We have been going to Bonaroti's for 26 years - it reminds us of our honeymoon in Rome and we go every year on our anniversary - it is always special and a meal we look forward to - we go other times, also, but that is our special "date". The food is marvelous, the staff attentive, the atmosphere refined,elegant and peaceful. The menu is a great assortment of choices but the specials are out of this world delicious - what a wonderful restaurant - I always recommend them, especially for a special occasion when you want that "right" touch!

    Ristorante Bonaroti is about as professional as one can find. The menu choices, including two sets of specials, is staggering - the more so since the food is so good. One would think to maintain that level of quality over such a large and varied selection is very difficult, but they consistently do. This is elegant dining. Highly recommended.

    Lived up to its reputation. Birthday dinner...I would recommend any of their fish dishes, as everyone's were great. They even made my 10 and 6 year old happy.

    The service was amazing. The food was really excellent in some cases (main courses of filet and red snapper, extras with bread and coffee, etc) and average in others (salad lettuce was a little bitter, cheesecake was a little dry). The price- value was good. The ambiance was warm and quaint. We really liked it.

    This apparently long-time gem in Vienna was a pleasant surprise to me and my wife -- great menu, attentive service, and near-excellent food. The restaurant attracts many "regulars," but first-timers are welcomed and well-treated. We'll be back . . .

    Always a delightful treat. The staff is very attentive, the homemade pastas are outstanding, and always plenty of fresh fish specials to choose from. Some dishes are more remarkable than others, but none are disappointing.

    The food is good and the service is excellent. The menu is pretty lengthy, so anyone can find something to their liking. I thought the decor was a bit dated and stuffy, but I guess it depends on people's taste. Overall, a good Italian restaurant that I will be frequenting for a good meal.
