Bon Caldo never disappoints. I haven't been in some time, but found the food, the service and the cocktails to be just as good as ever! Highly recommend for traditional Italian fare!

Had a wonderful dinner with friends. There were eight of us & were lucky enough to get a private room. It was fantastic. We were able to have a great conversation without worrying if we were talking to loud and disturbing other patrons. And as usual the food was terrific. Our waitress was very helpful (and patient) in helping us select the perfect wine and appetizers. We each had different entrees and enjoyed them all. I had the salmon and would highly recommend it. BonCaldos never disappoints!!

We had high hopes for a nice Valentine Dinner at Bon Caldo and were a bit disappointed. This began with a harried hostess staff who had difficulty seating folks and seated us (with 7:30 reservation) after folks who arrive after us with 7:45 reservations. We asked about this and were told that tables were assigned by numbers and they could not switch them. So we had to wait for our "reserved table to be cleared while others were available.

Once seated we had to ask the waitress to level our table because it wobbled (a lot). She was good natured about it - and in fact was the best part of the meal.

We ordered scallops wrapped in prosciutto - the scallops were overdone and rubbery and the prosciutto was stiff. The over-cooked theme continued where my date had swordfish that was dry and my medium filet was served medium well when I requested medium.

Not sure we'll try Bon Caldo again considering we have had better experiences at Sophia's a bit further down route 1 in Dedham and the places are similar in ambiance and menu

I made a reservation and then edited it to have a birthday dessert arrive at the table when we were finished with dinner. Obviously that request was ignored. Our waiter was pleasant , although was a novice. The food was fair, not outstanding. I would not go back to this restaurant.

My wife and I were looking for a spot to have dinner as we were on the road all day car shopping. We decided on this place after browsing Open Table. We were very impressed. The place was/is awesome!!

This is our second time dining in (we normally get take out) and we enjoyed our experience here! We usually get the chicken parm with gnocchi which is always delicious! The eggplant appetizer is always good. Calamari was cooked well also! The only reason I can’t give this 5 stars is one of the pasta dishes my mother-in-law ordered was missing the pasta! Other than that, great place for take out or to grab a bite for everyday dining or celebrate a special occasion.

This was a disappointing visit after always being excellent in the past. Service was spotty; almost every request was missed until a second request (lemons, water, bread, olive oil, etc). Effort was made to rectify but . . . Food was mixed on this visit, especially the pasta. Gnocchi was mushy and spaghetti was dry.

The food, as always, was very good. We always enjoy the meals we get. The service was less attentive than we hoped. We had to wait 20 min (unfortunately not an exaggeration) for our server to come back into the room before we could order a second round of drinks. The couple next to us had to wait the same for them to get their bill, which was even worse.

The food was okay - not as good as prior visits. Not sure if they changed chefs? Service was not up to par. Dropped our caesar salads off and never asked if we'd like fresh ground pepper. We had no pepper shaker on our table, so I had to go to another table in the dinning room and borrow it from there. We were a bit disappointed with the whole experience. Hopefully, it was just an off night for the restaurant, but it was New Year's Eve which made it that much more disappointing.

This was the first time I took a party of 10 people for a New Year's Eve dinner to the restaurant .
The food was delicious and our table was right in front of the fireplace (very cozy). We were not rushed thru our meal. It was a very enjoyable evening! Look forward to many more visits to the restaurant.
