great service and foodYou don't have to drive to Buckhead to get great food and service. It's as great as any downtown place and the staff is wonderful and friendly. It's niceto have a nice place to dine that isn't a chain and offers dishes that are nice and diferent from other places. And the desserts are the best!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMStarters and MoreWhat a delightful dining experience. Can't say enough about the food and service at Sperata.
The 'starters' are to die for and the bread is a buttery and delectable taste sensation............would love to get their recipe.
The menu offers a little something for everyone....satisfying to the most discriminating palate.
And, during our previous visit, we were presented with a $25 gift card............that was a nice surprise.
Love this place!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMYummyLoved our dinner at Sperata. I had the duck special and it was wonderful.
The onion tart appetizer was out of this world. Love to go here for an intimate
Also, the service was excellent. I have no complaints at all.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!We visited Sperato and were treated to a wonderful dinner. The service was outstanding-our server was extremely attentive and friendly. He explained each dish in depth and ensured we enjoyed our meal.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat gem!Great menu selections, wonderful specials with exceptional service from Justine. First time visit for us, will be visiting again.
Unique setting in downtown Buford, great atmosphere and quite so good conversations can be had.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and ambience.Excellent food and ambience. Service started out great and the flagged when it got busy. But highly recommend going there!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSperata's is one of my wifeSperata's is one of my wife and I favorite restaurants. We have frequented there many times and don't recall one bad experience.
Our waiter(Michael) on evening of April 19, 2013 was simply great. He was attentive to all our needs, but didn't crowd us. The salmon for myself and wife was prepared to perfection. Wine list was excellent. Only shortcomming that I have experienced at Sperata's is the absence of Tanqurey gin on cocktail menu. Recommend this restaurant highly.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSperata - sets the standard!Excellent place to have dinner - especially for those special occasions. My wife & I visit Sperata 3 - 5 times a year for Birthdays and with out of town visitors and just about any other excuse we can come up with! Always very good food, friendly professional staff, and a good overall atmosphere. On this visit, I booked thru Open Table and ordered flowers to be delivered for my wife - it was her birthday. The staff were ready for us with the flowers on the table and they really helped make it a special occasion. Even a free desert - not just a small piece of generic cake, but a choice off the menu. Small things, but it's that sort of gesture than keeps drawing us back.... and did I mention the food...... also, wait staff......&.....&.....4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNot a bad choice for good foodService was excellent and the menu is full of great choices. The specials are also worth a try.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of the few restaurantsThis is one of the few restaurants well north of Atlanta that lives up to the standard of "fine dining". The service was great, and the foot excellent. I had the filet, and it was one of the best (and largest)steaks I have had in a restaurant the past year. All too often, fine dining restaurants give you portion sizes leaving you wanting more. This is not the case here. If you are looking for something better than the endless chain restaurants in upper Gwinnett County, Sperata is the place to go.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMInternation quality in BufordBuford is a good litle town with the potential to be great.With gem's like Sperata the neighbourhood should excel in attracting locals and visitors.The Owner and Chef Chris Hope brings some international experience to our doorstep.The lamb shank and the seafood pasta dish would compete extemely well on a top table in any City around the world. I would encourage the local community to use your doorstep specialities or risk loosing them to the bigger Towns and Cities. Having recently acquired a business in the region my wife and i hope to be frequent visitors to Sperata. Thanks for a great meal Sperata3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI have eaten at Sperta's numerousI have eaten at Sperta's numerous times and will continue to do so.

I took my wife there for our one year anniversary, and it was absolutely perfect.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to Sperata on SaturdayWent to Sperata on Saturday night. Had an excellent meal including appetizers (carpaccio and ahi tuna), main course of New York strip and Rib Eye steaks, dessert and coffee. The steaks were done perfectly, including a very rare New York strip. The dessert and coffee were excellent.
The atmosphere was very good, got kind of loud near end of the meal due to a large party dining in the back of the room. Service was good at first but got kind of slow after desset, had to wait on the check.
Overall, a good experience will probably go back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the service and specialtiesEnjoyed the service and specialties offered from the menu.
