I discovered Buona Sera on Instagram and have been following for quite awhile. I met some friends that live in south jersey and had a fantastic meal. The food tastes as good as it looks on insta! Our waitress Erin was awesome and very attentive. My guests made some adjustments to their orders and it wasn’t an issue at all, very accommodating. Looking forward to going back sometime soon.
One of my favorite restaurant to go to. Very tasty and delicious. Ambience was very nice with Tuscan feel to it. Angel, our waiter was very attentive and pleasant. Looking forward to dining again.

One of the best restaurants in monmouth county
Erin, our server, was wonderful, attentive, and professional.
Our dinner was outstanding.
We shared the eggplant Rollatini for appetizer. It was a very generous portion and it was out of this world.
I had the chicken cacciatore and my boyfriend had the shrimp and scallops over spaghetti in a pink cream sauce. Both were amazing.
Been coming here for years. Great food, great vibe, and to have their own parking lot in Red Bank makes BS a win win all around.
Never had a bad meal ,alway amazing....
This was Dec. 18, 2021. Our table over looked the kitchen. The staff literally was dumping trays of discarded food onto the floor, dumping water on top of it & shoveling it into the drain all while still cooking. Not one person had gloves or a mask on! No one person washed their hands ever! Not even after shoveling this slop. I saw them drop a rag they were using to “ clean” on the floor, picked it right back up & continued to use it. This all happened after our dessert came out. We already had appetizers & entrees. Most disgusting, vile thing you could imagine for a $400 meal. The managers excuse was “we have 600 people here tonight”. Offered to take a piece of cake off the bill, never did. Think twice before ever going here friends! We certainly won’t be back….EVER!!!
Our server is the best. Really enjoyed our time together. Got to try new wines bc they were discounted. Loved the salmon, calamari and desserts.
A friendly atmosphere with good food and service.
Excellent food and service, busy, family atmosphere.
Very beautiful italian restaurant with great food and in an excellent location. Great place to eat before seeing a show at Count Basie
Atmosphere, service and food was GREAT. Generous portions served and when they arrived at the table they were steaming!
Really enjoy Buona Sera, we have been here several times and will return. We enjoyed everything. Pitcher of sangria was great as was the appetizer mozzarella, tomato and prosciutto.
Had the shrimp and scallops over pasta in a pink sauce and it was perfect. My wife had chicken Milanese and really enjoyed it.
Overall great ambiance and food.
Always a great experience when we dine at Buona Sera

The best been going for 30 years I will always go back
Had dinner at Buona Sera on October 19, prior to the monkeys concert at Count Basie theater. Service was impeccable, food came out exactly as requested, and reasonably priced. Will return
First, I never got my Open Table points for this reservation even though I checked in.
Second, it took more than 30 minutes to get our drinks and appetizers served. The entrees were a bit more timely thankfully. The food was good, nothing outstanding. I've had better meals there before. Good size portions as always. Really enjoy the ambience.
Very consistent for so many years now. Food is always good, generous portions and the best service around…. Cheers!
This visit was our first time there... we will definitely be going back. Food was excellent!
Excellent food and wine list. Very good service.
It was sooo noisy there it was impossible to talk.
Great service and a great meal overall. Fluke dish could have been better....
Good food. Good service.
Benny was a fantastic waiter. He was attentive, pleasant and made or first time at the restaurant a memorable one.
Beyond expectations as always. From the start with our cocktails to the bottle of Gaia....everything was outstanding. We both ordered veal entrees which were cooked to perfection with zucchini fries.The service is always excellent. We had a seat next to the windows which was a secluded private area, it made it special. I highly recommend Buona Sera!
Food was very plentiful. Well located to the Count Basie Theater.
