Mrs. Q says: GNO – Girl’s Night Out and Bueno Terra was very busy. Thursday is their Pre-Fix Special. On Thurs.(Pre-fix Special) you are able to order off the regular menu, not a special menu. The food & service were outstanding. Mrs. Q ordered her Appetizer: Carpaccio (Sliced tenderloin of beef drizzled w/ truffle oil and topped with Portabello Mushrooms, Capers and shaved Parmesan.) This appetizer was fabulous. The ladies shared their appetizers, with a taster portion, if asked, and the Beet Salad was another of Mrs. Q ‘s favorites. My Entree: Veal Monte Carlo (Sauteed Veal Medallions with Proscuitto and fresh Fontina cheese in a sherry wine sauce). My favorite taster portions offered by the Ladies were: The homemade Italian Sausage & the Potato Spinach Dumplings (Gnocchi). All delicious.
Yes, go and enjoy, but go on Thurs. for the Pre-Fix Deal to see if you like it. Luckily, we found free street parking. However, Buona Terra offers Valet Parking at $7.00. Yes, they have a full bar and be wise and make a reservation, especially if you go on Thursday for Pre Fix.
