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 Boulevard. The restaurant's walls are lined with some 500 plates painted and signed by visiting celebrities. But good luck seeing them as the evening progresses and satisfied diners join the well-dressed patrons arriving to dance. The place may turn into a lounge, but the food isn't an afterthought. The meal begins with extra virgin olive oil and fresh breads followed by a reworked seasonal menu of Italian and Mediterranean fare inspired by family customs: simply prepared seafood, an assortment of pizzas and pasta. The wine list includes more than 400 choices and a strong concentration of Italian labels.
