This little gem in the neighborhood has excellent food, great hospitality, and friendly atmosphere. ..prices are reasonably and you'll never leave hungry. ..great portions. Fabulous spot.

Was in the midst of a rowdy group but the service and the food were so great that we didn't mind the noise. Have been to Poppi's, LaColina, Guesseopi's. and never had a meal as good as the one I had Saturday at Bono Cucina's.

My boyfriend and I went here to celebrate 6 months together over 2 years ago. Since then, we have been there multiple times for other celebrations of being together, a party to celebrate his brother choosing his groomsmen for his wedding, etc. You have to bear in mind that this is a true, bare-bones family run place and that there is only one person cooking everyone's food to order. So, you must be ready for a slow, relaxing night. If you are a person who likes to be in a hurry at a restaurant, despite the top quality food, this place is simply not for you. So, if you want some of the best gnocchi and eggplant rollatini you will ever have in a relaxed, personal atmosphere, make it a point to call Bona Cucina for a reservation (make it for earlier in the night though!)

We had a reservation for 8pm for a party of 4. We waited for an hour at the doorway.......letting people in and out because there is no other place to wait at. We got seated at 9pm and the restuarant closes at 10pm. We got some aperitivos......mussles in red and white.....nothing special, stuffed mushrooms.....okay and salad...salad..ok.2 strip steaks.okay, carciofo...okay....service was good. again, food was okay but was the wait worth all that?? sorry, Not for us....oh yeah, forgot this part...brought wine and the glasses that was given to us had lipstick stains on them!!! if not that, they were chipped!! one day, maybe try again....just to give it a try again.

My wife and I found this place a dozen years ago and have come here at every opportunity. There's nothing fancy about the decor or atmosphere: It's a cozy, neighborhood BYOB that only takes cash and that's so down-home you can feel a little like you've wandered into someone else's party. And it's a small family business, so on busy nights don't expect lots of attention or lightning service. But for consistently fantastic food in big quantities at low prices, there's no place we've ever found that can match it. After finding this place, we rarely want to go anywhere else. We dread the day that Frankie and Pat decide to hang up their aprons.

My first visit to Bona Cucina was less than stellar due to the extremely slow service. Be prepared to wait and wait and wait. Had reservations for 6:30 and did not leave until close to 9. Soup came out right before dinner was served. We were given wrong soda and waitress made it seem like it was our fault. With that being said, loster bisque, gravy, stuffed flounder and pasta with crab/shrimp was great. Tiramisu was to die for. Food was great, but sevice sucks...big time!

My boyfriend found this place in the new paper three valentines days ago and we decided to try it out, and its been our favorite place ever since then and make an excuse to get there for any excuse possible, including writing this review! I can't tell you how many times we have been there since with friends and family. The owners run the resturaunt from top to bottom and it shows. The food is always delicious my only choice (also trying many of my boyfriends!) being chicken napalatano and a side of home made linguine and rosa sauce, perfecto!
