Food was ok, service was very good. Vegetables with dinner seemed like they were frozen from the grocery store. Had the surf and turf, would not recommend the steak. Shrimp was excellent.

The food was mediocre they use way too much sauce the crowd can be loud and noisy and disruptive if you're trying to be on a date I showed up for my reservation five minutes early and didn't get set at my table for another half hour was extremely disappointed with the service wine list is not accurate

As always, the food and service were beyond compare. We were there this time for Valentine's Day and still received the same great food and service. We have had our server, Brent, several times before. He is amazing!

I made our Valentine's Day reservation 3 weeks in advance with very high expectations based on our last experience there. However, the Riesling we were hoping for was no longer available, nor was the dish I wanted for dinner---out for the evening. The unfortunate thing was that the server did not mention that when I placed my order. So I finally decided upon another dish, which was to have included a salad or soup. Again, our server did not mention a "Caesar" salad would be an additional charge, not much, but was not expecting to pay additionally for them, (just saw the charges on the tab) as my SO and I both ordered one with our entrée. May seem like minor things---but all tolled--not the dining experience we were hoping for.

Tried the walleye and lasagna this time. Both were very good. Scott was our waiter and was fantastic as last time. We will be back.

Service and food were good. Noise level was so high we could not carry on a conversation however we were able to listen to every word spoken at the adjacent table. It was not a relaxing evening.

We have been to Buona Sera many times and the food is amazing. Our service, however, this time wasn't great. It won't deter us from returning, but if it happens again, and for the price you pay for food, our expectation is excellent service. If it happens again, we may not return.

Overall a very good dining experience despite the lady showing her friend a loud video on her phone.

I had heard so many good things about the restaurant. Service was excellent. I found the food to be OK - not as good as what I had been told. I am not a food snob, but considering price and value, a bit of a let down. Went to a different restaurant the following evening and got better Italian food at half the price (my wife agreed), which probably skewed my perspective a little regarding my Buona Sara experience. I will probably give it another try in the future hoping that I caught them on an off night.
