Charming spot. Very lively. Food is great. Would definitely go again.
Had a great dinner at Buono on college! The food was great. the wine options were pretty expensive and the portions were kind of small but overall it was a good experience.
Very nicely decorated place and the tables were well-organized. My server was very friendly but they forgot about part of our meal and we waited 30 minutes for it (after we reminded them). The food is well priced as well. Overall, it was a good restaurant.
Pizza was a bit disappointing
Great spot. Will go again.
The staff were really great and the food was amazing!
Food was so so. Pasta typical. Nothing here would wow anyone. Service was attentive
Great food. Great value. Quality service. Cool back door patio. Through no fault of the restaurant there was a bed near our table that bothered us for 10 minutes during the appetizer, but we were able to move and it became a non issue! Would highly recommend, and would go back!
Anna and Andrea got it right! Great Italian dishes that are authentic and delicious. Prezzo/Qualita ratio is right on. Reminds me of some of my favourite trattorias around Italy. About time Toronto got this vibe going.
Back patio is a great setting for virtually any occasion.
Really enjoyed our experience here... Lovely patio, delicious food and attentive staff.
Will definitely recommend and will definitely be back!
They have a nice patio at the back and the service was good. I liked it but the food is a bit of a different story. We had Insalata Caprese where it says it has 'salt & black pepper'. These two ingredients were not present there. I do know that I can add it myself but why a chef wouldn't do it? It had no taste at all. The tomatoes were super thick as if they were to be used for a tomato soup. It's not the quantity but the quality that counts. I didn't see any effort spent on this item at all.
I don't like the pizza there because it has a thick crust but this is a personal choice and I'm not holding it against them. Instead, I ordered pasta. This was good but.........the parmesan cheese that was "delivered" was so tacky that took away all the pleasant experience I could have. I was asked if I'd like parmesan and they gave me a little plastic container (the take out style). Is that the Covid thing????? It looked like the cheese inside was not freshly placed there because I had to shake it really hard to be able to sprinkle it over pasta. Otherwise I would end up with one big block on top of the rigatoni.
Not much needed to improve the experience and I hope it will be done.
Great service and the staff in super nice!
The place was amazing! We had the caprese salad, piadina with sausage, cured meats platter, meatballs and roasted vegetables platter and everything was so delicious! The servers were amazing and super kind. Can’t wait to go back!
Great patio. Food was tasty but service was quite slow.
This was our first time there to celebrate my friend's birthday. As we were waiting for our reservation, Italy won the Euro cup, so you can imagine there was a bit of a delay getting our 5:45 reservation and the patio was packed.
The food was great! I asked the table next to us what they ordered and she raved about the truffle pasta and had dreams about it. My friend got that (as she is vegetarian) and thought it was delicious.
Server forgetting balsamic dressing on salad, having to flag them down for another drink but I chalk it up to restaurants just re-opening, the Euro-cup, drizzle rain etc. Everyone was very pleasant with great cocktail and wine recommendations. We definitely will be back!
Simple but delicious! The back patio is super cozy!
The food and service was great. The truffle pasta was phenomenal.
Service and atmosphere were great! The food was a little salty tho (carbonara)
Amazing service. Highly recommend!!
I went to buono to get a nice meal with my mom. It’s a cute tucked away patio with top quality food. We loved its casual atmosphere with above quality food! It’s a perfect spot for relaxing get together with friends or family!
Very friendly staff, i really enjoyed being there i felt welcomed and felt like i was visiting a close friends restaurant. The food was delicious and the beer was fairly priced, wine was quite pricy although. Overall was a great place for get together, and would recommend. Thank you Buono College.
Absolutely loved to food - considering the price it is so worth it. The servers were absolutely amazing!! Such a cute and cozy backyard patio.
The Staff were just great!! The patio is nice - it would be even nicer at night time with the lights on, we went during the day. Next time though!!
Try the lasagna
Very tasty food and service was great!
Everything was great. Strong smell of garbage though on back patio.
Amazing! Great pasta and portion. The drinks were great. The playlist was a nice touch too.
Loved this spot!
Very authentic, a hidden gem for sure!
The tables were a little bit closer to each other. The food was delicious and the attendant was really polite.
The food was delicious and the server was so knowledgeable and friendly. We didn't feel rushed and she made lovely recommendations. Oh and the truffle pasta.....I still dream about it
Great food at a fair price. Cozy atmosphere with fantastic service
Wonderful experience at Buono on College ST last night. Service is excellent and the food was incredible. Great back patio. Had the best time and can't wait to eat there again!!!
Loved it! The food was amazing and everyone was so nice.
Pastas were delicious and the service was good too. However we found the restaurant staff quite rude.
Lovely spot! Great vibe and cute back patio. Would definitely come back
Ambiance was nice, they have a very cute back patio, with a good amount of people. The food was good as well, my friend and I both ordered the pesto with spaghetti. Service could definitely use some work. Food runner brought over pesto with rigatoni instead of spaghetti , but I didn't mind waiting for the spaghetti and for me wasn't the BIGGEST deal. Then our server came up to me and asked if I had ordered the rigatoni, had to remind him that I hadn't at which point he followed by saying, "but did you order with me ? " in a fairly confrontational manner, which was really not appreciated.
Unfortunate cuz I had read the mixed reviews prior and a consistent issue I saw was the service, but I still wanted to give it a chance as it was close by and I love Italian food. Fair to say I probably won't be returning to this location.
Cozy courtyard ambiance and great food. I would dine there again.
Great little spot - hidden gem. I loved the service and food.
My fiancé and I made same day resos. We normally wouldn’t have went to this restaurant but due to covid it there were few restaurants that we knew to choose from.
I did my research quickly for ambiance and it passed the vibe check. Back patio was closed in with wood making it feel earthy and was really cute. I went on their IG and checked out the tagged in photos to be sure this place would be ok.
We arrived 5 min early and were seated right away. Staff were nice and courteous.
We ordered wine and a beer for drinks. A salad and a slice of pizza for apps. Then we got two different pastas.
We thought it was neat you could choose your own pasta. And the pastas is made fresh there.
We go out often for dinners to high end and low end and thought this place was good!
I would recommend.
Prices were normal for food and booze. It’s not a cheap place, but not overly expensive.
Oh and the place felt like a young crowd 20s at first. But the a few older folks joined after.
Happy we found this gem, our date night was a success!
