We have had the pleasure of dining at Bonanno's a few times over the past 3 weeks. The food is great, the atmosphere is welcoming and the service is superb! Tony and AnnMarie are doing a great job bringing authentic Italian food to a small country town. Make sure to visit on a Wednesday to hear James play guitar and... More

After just a few short months, Bonanno's has successfully brought authentic Italian cuisine to the country! Tony, Ann Marie and their team, have established a friendly and courteous environment that makes you feel right at home and special.

The food was good... Oysters fried perfectly...decent wine selection reasonably priced. Pork rib-eye was fantastic. The only trouble is the wait staff needs to be educated. Our waitress new very little about the wines, and could not answer one or two simple questions about the menu. Worse, she was actually training someone else. Inadequate service can ruin otherwise good food.

It is really nice to have a quality restaurant in Madison. Dining locally is so much nicer than going out of town. We always enjoy dressing a little upscale for Dining. The food is the best we have ever had in Madison, Love the menu. We are new customers who will soon be considered regulars there.

While we were unimpressed with the old restaurant, we were happy to give the new place a try. Today, we both went in for a very late lunch....kind of an off time, but were greeted warmly. There were two pasta specials and we each ordered them. My husband got the linguini with meatballs, the meatballs were huge and tasty as... More

Our first visit in several years, now under new management. The physical restaurant is pleasant with a nice bar area and local artists on display. The lunch menu was fine and they offered several interesting specials. The barmaid was really loud voiced and detracted from the ambience, she was pleasant but had a booming loud voice that made the bar... More

We had a fantastic dinner when driving through Madison, VA. The service was excellent, and all dinners in our party of four (steak, pasta and seafood) were superb. The owners were both in the dining room and we felt welcomed and appreciated. The wrong bottle of wine was served but it was switched out immediately with a new bottle no... More

What a wonderful array of Brunch items on the menu! From Pasta and Gourmet Burgers to Homemade Quiche! Love the French Press Coffee that was added!

Now called Bonnano's Madison Inn, the restaurant has changed hands. The new owners are delightful and the food promises to be very good. We ate dinner here on Valentine's day and they were packed. Service was a little slow, but understandably so give the number of patrons. My wife had lobster and crab ravioli with a vegetable side and I... More

While in the Madison area on a Sunday we stopped in for lunch. They were busy, but we were sat within a few minutes.
