This place has become my personal food & wine "Cheers". I can go and grab a meal at the bar when I want to work or chill after a long day and take clients to dine without worry, too.

The Osso Bucco is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and Burr always has a wine to please me.

Highly recommended.

not much going on here in this valley - until Buona Sera. Great place to pop in for an adult beverage and an appetizer (no, not hot wings). Better yet, have a leisurely meal. The food and service are quality.

Our party of 7 had a delicious meal here and service was friendly and there was a nice warm ambience, not at all what you expect when you pull up outside in the parking lot. Both owners came over to greet us and the server was friendly and energetic. Food tastes freshly prepared and this is definitely minden's locale for upscale fine dining.

We had our first visit to Buona Sera last night. We were very pleased with our experience. It's a small restaurant in a strip shopping center; but, after you walk through the front door you find yourself in an beautifully decorated, intimate bar and restaurant. Additionally, you are met by friendly staff who do a great job serving you throughout your meal. The owners come to your table and introduce themselves and chat, which is nice. It can get a little pricey, especially if you add alcohol to your meal. The pasta entrées range from $19 - $26 and the "secondi" entrees range from $24 - $34. They have a decent wine list that ranges from the low $20s up. We had a bottle of wine with dinner, the calamari appetizer, split a salad, two "secondi" entrees, dessert and after dinner drinks and our tab was $154 before tip. Our whole meal was excellent, well prepared (with one issue noted below) and beautifully presented. I had a chef's special which was pan seared halibut, wrapped in pancetta and baked, served on a bed of whipped potatoes. My wife had sautéed lobster tail and king shrimp served on linguini with cherry tomato and brandy sauce. The only issue was the shrimp wasn't deveined; so, my wife had to do it at the table. We've never had shrimp in a restaurant that wasn't deveined. Even with the shrimp issue, it was a delicious meal in a beautiful restaurant. We'll be going back.

This is a great place in a small town! Deceiving from the outside, because inside it is a nicely decorated, small restaurant with a full bar and big menu. The service was friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent quality with subtle tastes. We asked if the chef could add some prawns to one of the items on the menu, and there was no problem. We will visit here again the next time we have a reason to be in Minden.
