About Buono Restaurant & Bar

There’s a slice of Chef’s heart on every plate served at Buono Restaurant & Bar on Como Parade West in Parkdale. This new bambino on Melbourne’s Italian block oozes European charm from the cool green colour palette to black and white images of the Colosseum on the walls; while elegant dark wood table settings beckon for a meal to remember. Say buon appetito to entrees like shallow-fried calamari, served with fennel and tomato salad and squid ink mayonnaise; before tantalising pasta dishes such as spaghetti alla chitarra, with red wine and tomato duck ragu and Parmigiano. Perhaps crumbed pork cotoletta on the bone with cos and witlof salad entices, washed down with a spicy honey orange Margarita; while those with more ravenous tastes may opt for the four-course degustation option.

Fantastic food, fantastic service, our new fave restaurant, and its local.


Best Italian Restaurant in Melbourne


Genuine, tasty, unique! Love it


Buono and Buonissimo!!
Do yourself a favor and visit this lovely restaurant in Parkdale. The staff truly cares about your experience. The food is absolutely amazing – everything I tasted was delicious!! Absolutely the best calamari with squid ink mayonnaise I had.
Highly recommend!


Authentic and delicious Italian food
Excellent food, excellent service. Authentic and unique. Buonissimo!


Buono is a hidden gem in Melbourne area that deserves to be known. All the staff and the owners are nice, kind, always smiling and you feel at home easily, but with elegance. All the ingredients are first quality and you can feel like in heaven after every bite, from the entrée to the dessert. I really recommend to go often to have the chance to try the delicious specials of the week. The cocktails and the wines are carefully created and selected as well. Go there if you want to feel like in Italy for one night.


The Italian cuisine at its best
I really had a great moment at Buono thanks to amazing meal and a really good floor staff
Advices are really pertinent and the food is really amazing. Even if you choose a classic meal, it will always be surprising




Terrific service of interesting food, sourced locally and cooked with love


A local gem ?? A gorgeous slice of Italia in Parkdale!!
Delicious, authentic Italian food, delivered by people who know & love the cuisine, and served faultlessly with ‘ottimo stile’ ??


Modern and fabulous food
This italian place is so far one of the best that I have ever been in Melbourne. Exceptional customer service, delicious food rich in flavour, great selection of drinks and cocktails. Its worth the 40km that I drive to seat and enjoy a dinner with friends!!
