Buonanotte is bringing the supper club dining experience back to Toronto. Since Buonanotte opened its first location in Montreal in 1991, it has been the prime location for the ultimate mixed dinning and clubbing experience.
“We love the idea of having a supper club that’s so focused on quality food and service but at the same time be able to transform into this outrageous party we have on the weekends”, says Geoff Chen the manager of Buonanotte.
The seasonal based menu provides an array of delicious delicacies provided by the culinary skills from Executive Chef Davide Iannaci and Chef De Cuisine Evan Dickinson. When deciding on a starter, Novella recommends the Affettati Misti, which is a selection of daily cured meats. For the main course, many customers cannot seem to get enough of the array selection of pizza and pastas. Buonanotte’s Pizza Chef, Enrico Dal Sasso, makes some of the best pizzas in the city offering a variety of flavours to satisfy any taste bud. The pizzaiolo oven is imported from Italy and heats up to 1000 degrees, allowing the pizza to be prepared within a couple of minutes. Novella recommends trying the mouthwatering Asiago pizza that’s served with crushed san marzano tomatoes, fresh basil, asiago cheese D.O.P, spicy salami, shallots and extra virgin olive oil. The pizzas are made from scratch and all the pastas are made in-house. If you like mushrooms then we recommend ordering the delectable Tagliatelle Con Funghi Selvaggi pasta served with tagliatelle with wild mushrooms, demi glace, extra virgin olive oil and fresh thyme. To finish off the heavenly meal, Novella’s must-try dessert is Buonanotte’s savoury cannoli.
On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays Buonanotte transforms the dining room into a dance party. Tables are removed, bottle service is added and a DJ spins top 40 music. “Like any supper club, it’s all about the transformation”, says Geoff. The supper club attracts a mature 27+ crowd, those who appreciate delicious food and the ultimate party. There are many large groups celebrating birthdays and other events. At Buonanotte, it’s all about the grand appeal, “Everything is just a grand party. We’re just here to wow people”, continues Geoff. At Buonanotte they want to create a family styled dinner vibe with big shareable portions and even serve a whole pig and ribs on a rack.
In addition, Buonanotte hosts happy hour from 5pm-7pm on Thursdays, a meet and greet for professionals in the city. This allows professionals from local businesses and offices to meet and network with people outside of their work yet still allowing them to meet people in their related field. Buonanotte offers complimentary snacks and bites.
