We seek out Italian food wherever we travel and compare it to what we've had in Italy. BG Buda's was delicious and light. I opted for the salmon, while my husband enjoyed one of the seafood-stuffed pasta dishes. Of course, I stole from him and he from me because both dishes were enticing. The staff is friendly, welcoming newcomers and... More

A relatively small place in the center of Cazanovia that serves very good Italian food. The appetizers are good. The risotto was very tasty. I added grilled chicken , which was a little dry. The chicken in the other dishes was soft and tasty. They ran out of one of the most popular deserts by 6:30 on a Friday night,... More

This is our favorite restaurant in the Syracuse area. We recommend it all the time to our friends. Whenever family visits from out of town, this is where we take them. The food is delicious because it's made from fresh ingredients. Even the mozzarella cheese is homemade on our favorite Caprese Salad. It's nice for those with smaller appetites too.... More

My wife and I enjoyed dinner here on a fairly quiet Sunday night. My rib-eye steak special was a bit on the pricey side at $30, but was juicy, tender and flavorful. My wife had the Chicken Saltimbocca, which she enjoyed. The mixed berry pie was a little on the sweet side, but still very good. The service was friendly... More

We went here on a Sunday night and the special was all you can eat spaghetti and meatballs. One large bowl was plenty no need for a refill. I ordered a half salad which was delicious. I also ordered a half order of chicken with a lovely sauce, mashed sweet potatoes and very tender aspargus. The dinner was just the... More

If you are looking for a place with casual dining, good food, local beer on tap and reasonable pricing this is it. My wife and I went. I got chicken riggies which were good-spicy and a good sized serving. Wife got penne vodka (half serving) and enjoyed that. We also got salads, two drinks each and dessert. We left with... More

On a recent Saturday night, we stopped in for dinner and were very pleased. The fresh swordfish was served on a bed of chilled barley and cucumber and so incredibly delicious. The service was excellent too....a wonderful experience.

Our favorite little restaurant in Cazenovia. It's a small place with great food. If you're really hungry get the full plate. For smaller appetites they offer half plates on some of the menu items. Perfect when you order one of their delicious salads. We don't always get dessert, but when we do, we are never disappointed. My husband always gets... More

The food was spot on. Everything we had was better then the last bite. The steak tips were cooked perfectly, the lobster Mac and cheese had large chunks of lobster in it. Love the idea that you can get 1/2 orders so you can try a couple of entrees. Can't wait to go back again.

The service, the food, and wine were all super. Highly recommended is the roasted Caesar salad as a starter. One of the best Italian meals we have had in some time! Very nice atmosphere as well.
