Quality Italian cuisine
In its original location on Glen Osmond Road, Glenunga, Buonasera Restaurant has been an Adelaide institution for over 40 years. Genial hosts Ilario Nesci and brother Giuseppe deliver consistently good standards of Italian fare and a welcoming family atmosphere to their guests, many of whom are now 3rd generation patrons.
The menu extends from old-style dishes, such as tripe and chicken livers, through to the best homemade pastas including the delicious agnollotti – pasta pillows stuffed with spinach, ricotta, ham and chicken and a host of traditional veal, chicken, seafood and risotto dishes and, of course, osso buco, prepared by Head Chef, Carmela with more than a hint of the old traditions.
Buonasera has an impressive wine selection and their expansive function room is ideal for every occasion from weddings to birthdays. Intimate seating for 30 up to 180 in the function rooms.
Our menu is available for takeaway

Wow. What a surprising and wonderful restaurant. We unexpectedly popped in to this amazing establishment today and my words will never give our experience the true recognition that it deserves. The atmosphere was beautiful and the customer service is without doubt the best I have ever experienced. Thank you so very much. I can not recommend you highly enough. I think this may be one of the best kept secrets in Adelaide.
