traditional Bolognese: tomato sauce with ground veal and beef
Lasagna Al Ragu
lasagna with beef and veal Bolognese sauce, bèchamel and parmesan
Buono was an amazing experience! We enjoyed everything from the ambience, food and service. That was my second time visiting Buono and I was not disappointed with anything.
I was celebrating my 30th birthday with friends and the staff made it extra special by bringing a slice of tiramisu and candles for me to blow out. It was so wonderful!
Thank you for such a wonderful service and I look forward to coming back again!
Good was really good - fresh, great tasting pasta. But the service was not good - got our orders wrong, never came to check on us…
Loved the patio in the back. Well lit and cozy in the evenings.
Second time here, with the two occasions being almost exactly one year apart. I enjoyed it this time even more than the last! First off, the restaurant decor and ambiance is right down my alley. It's cozy and warm, both indoors and outside on the back patio. Second, the food was delicious. We opted for the calamari starter (fried, but lightly breaded so you can actually taste the calamari itself and it was not over cooked as it usually is), then rigatoni bolognese and spaghetti pesto (both very good, though the former was much better than the latter, which had way too much olive oil), and then ended with the best tiramisu I've had in a very long time. Lastly, the waitress was really personable. Would come again, if only for the tiramisu!!
Nice and quiet backyard patio. Friendly and professional staff. I recommend the lasagna.
Food was delicious and came quickly, our waiter didn’t check up on us as much as we would have liked, but everything else was great
Bad food, not Italian food, poor quality and portions. Not worth the price at all.
Amazing atmosphere! Amazing pastas and drinks. Very attentive servers! They also gave us great recommendations. Overall a great experience!! 5/5
Really bad service. They forgot about us for at least two hours.
Delicious pasta for a great value!
We didn’t have the greatest experience at this restaurant. We went for our 6th wedding anniversary and were quite disappointed with the service. Our server took our order and came back 15 minutes later asking us if we were ready to order. We told him we already ordered and he just said, I totally forgot and I didn’t put it your order. That made us feel pretty insignificant. Once we did get our order, he never came back to check up on us. We finished our $90 bottle of wine and didn’t even get asked if we wanted anything else. Does this restaurant serve dessert? We don’t know. We left really sad and unfortunately will never be coming back.
Exceptional food as always! I’m a regular at this spot and the service and food is always so good.
Divine. Beautiful, outdoor ambience. Amazing food. Well priced. Was thrilled with our outing. ‘Our new fave restaurant!” Thanks!
I was very disappointed with the food. Tasted terrible. They were understaffed but our waiter was trying his best. Definitely not covid safe - I could touch the tables beside us while using my fork on my plate. Two drinks and two mains and came out to $80? Bueno College was no bueno.
Nice casual restaurant with good fare for a super reasonable price. Much better than some other Italian college street restos, which use frozen pasta… Buono is fresh, cool Italian fare!
I had a pasta dish and my wife had a pizza. Both tasted fantastic. Back patio was really nice. I'd recommend this restaurant to friends.
Had a great time at Buono College! Food was amazing, service was great, and the back patio is so cute. Definitely will be returning
Delicious pasta and cocktails, and wonderful vibe on the back patio. Highly recommend the Pettinata pasta with fresh truffles. The servers were all very kind and attentive. We will be back!
Great food and service!
Few food options, no meat. The portions are small. Nice place and polite staff.
It was great! The pasta was amazing, the bolognese was incredible, the ambience was just right, and if you’ve got gluten sensitivities they’ve got gluten free pasta!!! It was a lovely night!
Great food and service. Authentic Italian cuisine.
Such a gem of a place - their tiramisu is so delicious and their patio is nice and private so you have a lot of space to catch up with friends.
Charming spot. Very lively. Food is great. Would definitely go again.
Had a great dinner at Buono on college! The food was great. the wine options were pretty expensive and the portions were kind of small but overall it was a good experience.
Very nicely decorated place and the tables were well-organized. My server was very friendly but they forgot about part of our meal and we waited 30 minutes for it (after we reminded them). The food is well priced as well. Overall, it was a good restaurant.
Pizza was a bit disappointing
Great spot. Will go again.
The staff were really great and the food was amazing!
Food was so so. Pasta typical. Nothing here would wow anyone. Service was attentive
Great food. Great value. Quality service. Cool back door patio. Through no fault of the restaurant there was a bed near our table that bothered us for 10 minutes during the appetizer, but we were able to move and it became a non issue! Would highly recommend, and would go back!
Anna and Andrea got it right! Great Italian dishes that are authentic and delicious. Prezzo/Qualita ratio is right on. Reminds me of some of my favourite trattorias around Italy. About time Toronto got this vibe going.
Back patio is a great setting for virtually any occasion.
Really enjoyed our experience here... Lovely patio, delicious food and attentive staff.
Will definitely recommend and will definitely be back!
They have a nice patio at the back and the service was good. I liked it but the food is a bit of a different story. We had Insalata Caprese where it says it has 'salt & black pepper'. These two ingredients were not present there. I do know that I can add it myself but why a chef wouldn't do it? It had no taste at all. The tomatoes were super thick as if they were to be used for a tomato soup. It's not the quantity but the quality that counts. I didn't see any effort spent on this item at all.
I don't like the pizza there because it has a thick crust but this is a personal choice and I'm not holding it against them. Instead, I ordered pasta. This was good but.........the parmesan cheese that was "delivered" was so tacky that took away all the pleasant experience I could have. I was asked if I'd like parmesan and they gave me a little plastic container (the take out style). Is that the Covid thing????? It looked like the cheese inside was not freshly placed there because I had to shake it really hard to be able to sprinkle it over pasta. Otherwise I would end up with one big block on top of the rigatoni.
Not much needed to improve the experience and I hope it will be done.
Great service and the staff in super nice!
The place was amazing! We had the caprese salad, piadina with sausage, cured meats platter, meatballs and roasted vegetables platter and everything was so delicious! The servers were amazing and super kind. Can’t wait to go back!
Great patio. Food was tasty but service was quite slow.
This was our first time there to celebrate my friend's birthday. As we were waiting for our reservation, Italy won the Euro cup, so you can imagine there was a bit of a delay getting our 5:45 reservation and the patio was packed.
The food was great! I asked the table next to us what they ordered and she raved about the truffle pasta and had dreams about it. My friend got that (as she is vegetarian) and thought it was delicious.
Server forgetting balsamic dressing on salad, having to flag them down for another drink but I chalk it up to restaurants just re-opening, the Euro-cup, drizzle rain etc. Everyone was very pleasant with great cocktail and wine recommendations. We definitely will be back!
