Arrived at 7.05. Waitress took wine order at 7.20. Took food order at 7.27. At 7.43 asked where the wine was. Delivered to the table at 7.50. Wrong wine. At 8am a bottle of wine plonked on the table. Food order was placed at 7.27....At 8pm the “manager” (who looked and sounded not well for whatever reason) asked if we were ok. We said we were not impressed with the slow service. At 8.10 we again asked this manager when we would get the food. We were assured it was being plated. At 8.22 we were told it was 4 minutes from being served. At 8.30 we left. Without food being deliveredMore

Buonissimo never disappoints, friendly staff and a comprehensive Italian menu make this a firm favourite. Take aways arrive quickly and piping hot, always a treat.

We have had Bounissimo Pizza every week for the last few months, base always crisp and great toppings. The proprietor is a guy called Shannon, who really enjoys his work, this is reflected in his team who are upbeat and vibey!

I try to visit Buonissimo once a week. It is my local 'go to' restaurant. The food is good, homely and tasty. The service warm and friendly.

Its not many places where you get authentic Italian food and a thin crust pizza. From starters to mains all the food was delicious and made with love. Great service from our waiter. I have been to Buonissomo almost every month, sometimes twice in a...month. Consistent and delicious. Shannon is a gem. Highly recommend.More

Great food totally spoilt by very poor waitering. I had to clear the table myself between starters and main course. A big table is not easy but not when waitresses are standing around doing nothing! A birthday party gone wrong.

For an age, Buonissimo was our our restaurant, coffee stop, fun stop, cheese cake and carrot cake stop, when visiting Mum and Dad in Modderfontein. Fortunately, they have transitioned into the new Flamingo Vlei shopping centre, and while not the intimate village restaurant, there is...still that something uniquely Italian. Great food, attentive service an an interesting wine list made for a relaxed, enjoyable evening. The ’Salto’ (beef strips with Parmigiano shavings and rocket) was tasty and the Scaloppini (beef cutlets with provolone cheese and white wine) was delicious. An usual tasting sangiovese from Koelenhof added that element of mystery.More

A small restaurant in Flamingo Centre, it has about a dozen tables. The wine list while small has an interesting selection of more off the beaten track wines. The service is good and the meal we had was really good. Starters were a garlic and...cheese focaccia, but it was the main course that excelled. We both had Cortigiano which is chicken in a creamy sauce with mushroom's and vegatables. It was stunning and really recommendedMore

We had dinner at Buonissimo last night, luckily we'd booked a table, as the people were queuing to find a seat. This restaurant serves all the Italian favourites including pizza and pasta. I had the ravioli and it was delicious, soft, little pillows of pasta...with a delicious, meaty filling all smothered in sauce. The portions are generous and the pizza looked delicious too. Our waitress was friendly and efficient, complimentary bread sticks on arrival was a nice touch, definitely worth a visit.More

Had lunch with a friend today. He ordered coffee shake & Nonna pizza. I ordered pineapple & ginger juice. I was not hungry & tried a piece of pizza. I have eaten here on several occasions, but today the pizza tasted very bland. We mentioned...this to lady owner, who said that had we sent back the full pizza, she would have made another one🤭. We said paying for the pizza is not the problem, the taste is! She told us no one else complained about their pizza!, just us & that we could go elsewhere! We were astonished by her bad attitude!More

This place always delivers good pizzas, good quality and delivers at your door. Made in proper pizza oven and they use good fresh ingredients. Also gluten free pizzas available.
