Great, polite service. Affordable! A wonderful place for a quiet, peaceful dinner. Linguine with clams perfect. Warm bread and Chianti. Highly recommend.
This is a great place to go to enjoy an Italian meal in Kailua. The restaurant is small, so it is nice and quiet. The food is delicious and the service is very good. We've been coming here for over 15 years and have never had a bad meal or bad service.
We read up on this an went for dinner tonight. It was very good. The salads were excellent and the special was very good. Service was great. Would definitely recommend. Small venue, more romantic than the other Italian places around.
We always have attractive and tasty menu choices at Buona Sera! The service is prompt and frequent without being overbearing. We enjoy the interior of the small and intimate location (the walls are covered almost entirely with the fiber wrapped Chianti bottles emptied by hundreds of previous diners). It is a favorite of ours, particularly for special occasions and anniversaries.
Stopped in last night and ordered a variety of small plates as well as rigatoni bolognese. The atmosphere is cute, with wine jugs hanging all over the walls. The service was great, although they weren't very busy when we went, but they were friendly and helpful. Our food: rigatoni bolognese. This was my daughters dinner and she liked it except... 更多
It's been 4 years since we've written a review of Buona Sera on TA and like most of us, we look at most recent reviews - so decided to review Buona Sera again. Bottom line - it's still Excellent and not to be missed if in Kailua. We've vacationed on Lanikai for 15 years and always make it to Buona... 更多
Always busy... I used to go at opening time to avoid waiting. Love the Chianti♡ Probably should call to ask for a table for a bigger group since inside is not very spacious. Price is average, portions are not very big but they will accommodate your request if asked. Not recommended for families with children that like to move around... 更多
We had a great meal here! We did have to wait about 20 minutes for a table to open up and it is pretty limited on space here, so you may want to arrive a little before the usual eating times to secure a spot. The staff was pleasant and answered questions about the menu. I would definitely go back... 更多
We've been dining at Buona Sera for 20 years or so. Consistently good. We enjoy the cozy ambiance and the wait staff is always pleasant. Chicken Buona Sera is one of our all time favorites, but we also enjoy the carbonara, eggplant parmesan, linguine with clam sauce, pasta with calamari and anchovies and several other dishes. It's nice to have... 更多
We had the lasagna for dinner recently, and it was excellent at $15. The selection of wines was fine also. The waiter allowed us to split a meal at no charge, by bringing us an extra plate, rather than asking the kitchen to do it, which was OK by me. The lighting is low, providing some ambience, the room is... 更多
