Bongiorno Italian Restaurant is located in the heart of Crestline Village, and features Birmingham's best Italian fare.
Dining at Bongiorno is a close second to a trip to Italy - with choices such as spaghetti, ziti, calzone, lasagna, chicken Parmigiana, tortellini, linguine and shrimp marinara. Italian entrees, plus scampi, tuna and grouper, are among diners' top choices.
Bongiorno serves lunch Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Dinner service begins Monday through Saturday at 5 p.m., with closing at 9 p.m. on Monday, at 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and at 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
Founded in 1988 by Guiseppe "Joe" Magnolia who came to Birmingham from New York after successfully operating Joe's Restaurant and Pizza. Magnolia brought his classic favorites and added several seasonal specialties to Bongiorno on Church Street.
Still family run, son Pietro and daughters Abigail, Monia and Maria all play a role in the daily success of Bongiorno. Sons-in-law Agustin and Oswaldo are also actively involved.
