My son loves Italian food, so we decided to check out Buon Giorno for his birthday. The food was amazing. Quite simply the best Italian food we have ever had. The service was also excellent. We will definitely go back!

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we were definitely not disappointed. The Scampi was fabulous as was the lemon veal. Probably the best tiramisu I have ever had. The staff was very attentive without being overpowering. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Buon Giorno is an average alternative for Italian food lovers. The plate size is as expected however they tend to be on the spicy side. The spaghetti Carbonara would be my recommendation. The place decor seems a little bit outdated and the lighting is on...More
