A must try – I have been a costumer at Buon Amici for the last 5 years and they never cease to amaze me. Don
BuonAmici – My idea of a great place for dining is not only the quality of food, but also the atmosphere, ambiance and courtesy of staff, etc.
Mike, Patty and Bobby make sure that all of this is accomplished. Stop by Buon Amici any time and you are always guaranteed a great dinner and friendly atmosphere. Could never make up my mind as to what to order since everything on their menu is superb. Truly down home Italian, since most of the recipes belong to Patty and her Mom (especially the meatballs!). The place is the utmost in quality of food and service.
I highly recommend Buon Amici
Ridiculous place – The reviews of this restaurant had to be written by staff and not patrons. Go by any time on any day and you will see that it is the least populated place in the area. Why? For 4 cheese ravioli "special" (AKA cheese ravioli) you will pay $21.00. Do not go here it is substandard for the area and ridiculous in price/service. I project they will be out of business at the close of the year,
The best Italian place to eat in Manhattan! – Maybe it's because I am good family friends and neighbors with the owners, but I truly do love this restaurant. It's the only place where I can eat raviolis that aren't made by my mother. Their food and wine is fantastic and comforting, just sitting back with a glass of chianti and a plate of pesto gnocchi listening to dean martin in the background and you're back in Sicily. I love Pattie and Mike, they're great people and they always put the customer first, just how any restaurant should be ran. Love you guys!
The Best Italian Restaurant in the Downtown Area -- It's a Must! – Folks, you've just got to try this place. The food's great -- real homestyle, oldstyle Italian dishes. The people who own it feel like family and anyone and everyone that comes in is family too! I live the in the area and there are lots of new places cropping up around us, but if you are in the mood for hearty, tasty, Italian dishes, this is the place to go. You will not be disappointed.
Tell Pat and Mike hello when you get there!
Excellent neighborhood restaurant. – I tried out this place after reading the reviews of others on citysearch. It is exactly how they describe it. The food is truly solid. At the start of the meal, the bread given was toasted nice and crispy. The entrees that we had was the porkchop, lobster fra diavalo and the osso buco. All were cooked very well. The porkchop was a thick cut slab that was perfectly cook. Very Juicy with a very cheesy potato pancake and stir fried spinach. The osso buco was soft and tender with a very well prepared. The lobster was just barely cooked through. The timing of the chef is very good. If you live in the area, this restaurant is definitely worth a go.
Delicious Food – This is my fave Italian restaurant in NYC b/c of the owners! They're such sweet ppl.! & The food is absolutely wonderful! Definitely doesn't taste generic! The artisanal pastas & crisp, but soft, bread are delicious! I've never had a glass of wine or a cocktail @ Buon Amici that I didn't love either!
So worth it! – One (1) word defines this place . . . GREAT. Great food, great atmosphere, great service, great location, great owners, great location / neighborhood and great prices! Just went with a group of nine (9) for a friend's birthday and everyone loved it. Excellent menu with plenty of options. Rave reviews on the pork chop, the penne alla vodka, lasagna, chicken parm AND the meatballs!! Very good and inexpensive wine list too. There is a really cool wine bar around the block for pre dinner cocktails and a fun bar right next door. Well worth the trip!!!!!
Forget Little Italy. Go to Buon Amici! – Welcome addition to the Seaport. Classic , old school Italian menu . Reasonably priced. Great , friendly atmosphere. Food is delicious. Portions are generous My wife and I have become regulars. Check it out and you will be sure to go back again and again.
Charming Italian in the Neighborhood – Pat and Mike make you feel right at home here. Had brunch here, again today. Brunch is a fairly recent addition at Buon'Amici. It is one of the best values in the neighborhood. My friend had the seafood omelet, I had the eggs florentine. They have really good bread here! I have also been here for dinner and lunch. One time I had a pasta/mushroom special that Pat suggested. Pat will always guide you in the right direction! The atmosphere is small and cozy (even better when the TV in the bar area is OFF). There is always Italian music playing which adds to the ambience.
