                                              Our waitress tried so hard and it was appreciated but……..wow, no bartender so we had to walk them through how to make cocktails. It appeared only three persons were on staff thus delays at every turn. Then the food was just ok. We won’t return any time soon.

                                              Food was very over priced and portions were very small. Left hungry.

                                              I thought it was pretty pricey. The online menu and the in house menu varied by almost 10.00 on certain food’s. The chef came around to greet his guests. Very impressed! Food was great

                                              There isn’t another restaurant like this in buffalo. The service is great. The owner comes up to each table. He recognizes repeat customers. And he is TRUELY thankful for the business

                                              It was a very busy night & the wait staff was hustling. The service was obviously slower than usual, but we never felt that it was too extreme based on the number of tables that were being served. The food was amazing right from the appetizer straight through to the dessert. The fig & burrata appetizer was out of this world!! The food was well worth the short wait!! I can 100% recommend this restaurant & we cannot wait to go back!

                                              three tables that came in after us got their food before we received our salad. The filet special was an average cut (over-cooked) with one shrimp on top and almost $80. Not even close to being worth the cost.

                                              Food was decent quality. Portion sizes were small. Prices were high for the food served. Felt rushed when the restaurant wasn't even that busy. Probably won't return.

                                              One of the best Italian meals I've ever had. If you haven't been to Cugino's, what are you waiting for? Frank and his wife have put their heart and soul into this restaurant and you can feel it as soon as you walk in. I highly recommend the tagliatelle bolognese, and the short ribs.

                                              We had a party of 6 for NYE, most ordered the filet mignon my group didn't seem to care for the dijon mustard sauce spread on the top. Atmosphere was pleasant but loud, waited awhile for our meals, but that seems to be the norm now a days. Our waitress was VERY fun and energetic! Over all very good and I would definitely return.

                                              We enjoy what is for us an neighborhood restaurant. The family is so kind and attentive. All our food was delicious, wines great and atmosphere quiet and elegant. Elegant, but you feel comfortable.

                                              Unfortunately the negative reviews were spot on. Starting with the bread, which was (as another reviewer remarked) simply wrong. Taste and consistency were off and it fell apart before you could get it in your mouth. We split the stuffed banana pepper appetizer and knew we were in trouble early. They were stuffed with Italian sausage and cheese that was very bland. Both of our (expensive) dishes were also bland and lacked any appreciable seasoning. My wife ordered the fillet mignon, medium, and it arrived well done and again...largely flavorless. While every other employee was masked, our server was unmasked the entire time. Bill and tip came to just over $200.00. Very disappointing experience.

                                              The caprese salad was fresh and delicious. The lobster ravioli also was really good. Wasn't a fan of the bread.

                                              Everything tasted delicious. We had a relaxing lovely meal catching up with friends. It was hard to understand our waitress due to her accent and she had trouble understanding us which affected the service. But it in no way detracted from our evening.
