Excellent Italian food. Inspired recipes and execution.

A bit on the expensive side but worth it for a special occasion when you need a meal and a venue that is a cut above

We loved this restaurant as soon as we walked in! You’re immediately made to feel like a regular even though it was our first time there. The family run restaurant makes you feel like family. The owner Sergio escorts everyone to their tables, and continually pops back to check on you throughout your dining experience. Our server Arnoldo was exceptional. Professional, helpful, and all done with a sense of humor. The food was wonderfully prepared, and we appreciated the extras provided.
We’ll definitely be back!!!

We had driven past this restaurant a million times but never had tried it. I was persuaded to do so by the Open Table reviews. We both enjoyed our dinners very much and the service was outstanding -- polite, professional, and attentive but not overbearing or overly familiar. It was packed on Saturday night and justifiably so.

We went to Bonaroti to celebrate my parents' 35th wedding anniversary. We have been several times before, but not in the past two years. It was evident that the owner recognized us when we walked in. The service was impeccable as always and the food was delicious. They have a wide selection of food choices that includes many nightly specials prepared by the chef. We would highly recommend Bonaroti to friends and family and will make it a point to dine there more often.

We loved our "annual" restaurant once again; we come every year on our anniversary - this was 34! We brought our best man and his wife who are very dear friends. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful, everything was attentive but not hovering. The owner is always in attendance and checking in with everyone. As always, the food was delicious, the specials always a treat - fresh fish and seafood, osso bucco, lobster ravioli....so good. Wine list is very good and our raspberries with Chambord cream is our usual dessert with cappuccino - lovely dinner, and lovely company in a lovely restaurant!

Went there for a family dinner with our adult children. Classic Italian cuisine, with a varied menu and a wide selection of daily specials. Excellent wine list, albeit on the pricy side. Service was outstanding. One of our go to selections when we want a festive weekend dinner with the family.

Food was delicious. Warm bread on the table with butter, oils and herbs. Wait staff was attentive without being intrusive or rushing us. Salad was fresh. Entrée was enough to share. House wine was much better than expected and went well with the seafood pasta. Would definitely go back.

I had driven by the restaurant a thousand times and never went in. It may not have changed their décor since they opened 35 years ago and that adds to the charm. The wait staff was maybe the best I ever encountered, nice and attentive. The food was delicious. It is extremely high priced, but for a special occasion, it is worth it.

Consistently excellent. The kind of Italian food I grew up eating. So many choices and if you don't see something you like, like all good Italian restaurants, chef will make it for you. I like to split a couple of pasta dishes and my wife always has the fish papillote, usually snapper. Not too many restaurants do that anymore. Service is outstanding and the prices are fair.
