We were looking for a place to eat last minute. I randomly picked Buon Giorno as we were feeling Italian food.
Apparently, Om has been here before but that was 16 years ago. They’ve been around since 1987.
We dropped in on a Saturday evening with reservations for 7:30pm. It was bumping. Clientele is what you would call old folks. Within an hour, the place had cleared out. The inside is very old school with the red checkered clothed tables and wooden brick walls. Service was mediocre.
The menu apparently hasn’t changed one bit (except for prices obviously). Appetizers, salads, soups, pastas, risotti, veal specialties, poultry & meats and seafood.
Rose sauce was creamy but oh man, it was salty. Scallops were a dinky little pieces.
Fettucini tettrazzini ($20.95)
Mushroom and chicken breast in a cream sauce. Om wasn’t impressed with the sauce nor to tiny bits of pieces you’d call mushrooms. Didn’t live up to his previous meals here back in the good ‘ol days.
We weren’t over the moon with our meal at BG. Decent Italian but nothing special to make me want to come back for more.
