Buon Amici, located at 238 Central Avenue in White Plains, has been serving up authentic Italian-style eats for nearly two decades.
Chris Raimo, star of the “one-man show,” started in the business as a dishwasher, worked his way up to waiting tables and is now running the kitchen of his very own restaurant.
Buon Amici serves a huge array of classic Italian cuisine. On the menu, you’ll find savory appetizers like fried zucchini, shrimp cocktail, hot/cold antipasto, baked clams oreganata, fried mozzarella and more.
In addition to plenty of soup and fresh salad options, Buon Amici serves countless varieties of pasta, chicken, veal and seafood entrees like linguini with shrimp and scallops, chicken Sorrentino, veal piccata and filet of sole.
The eatery also has a number of ‘chef specials,’ which include high-end selections like the New York strip steak, baby rack of lamb and pork chops.
Since the restaurant’s February 2000 inception, it’s continued to gain momentum in the White Plains restaurant scene and has garnered four stars on Yelp and a near-perfect 4.8/5 stars on Facebook. From the classy atmosphere to the service and of course, the food quality, Buon Amici has definitely established itself as an area staple.
“Hands-down the best Italian food in White Plains and the absolute best lobster ravioli anywhere,” writes Colton P. in a May 22 Yelp review.
