Buona Notte Restaurant Review: Within a three-block stretch there are close to a dozen formerly hip restaurants where beautiful people used to meet to eat and dance the night away. Buona Notte is one of the oldest of these, and is also one of the only that survived the upheaval wreaked by construction on St-Laurent Blvd. The restaurant's walls are lined with some 500 plates painted and signed by visiting movie stars and celebrities. The food may not be the main draw, but it's a pleasant surprise. Patrons begin with extra virgin olive oil and fresh breads. The reworked seasonal menu is distinctly home cooking-oriented and includes traditional Italian fare inspired by family customs: wild sea bass with a Mediterranean mix, an assortment of pizzas, and pasta. The wine list includes more than 400 choices and a strong concentration of Italian labels. But stick around for the real party when the restaurant turns into a lounge and then a packed dance party. Order bottle service, reserve your table, and dance the night away to late 2000's club music.
