Located in Long Beach's seaside community of Belmont Shore. Bono's is the aspiration and latest commitment of owner Christy Bono, daughter of the late Sonny Bono. Her first restaurant in Long Beach, Zagat winner, Christy's Ristorante, continues to be one of Los Angeles area's favorite Italian Restaurant.

Ms. Bono's passion, inspired by the eclectic lifestyle of Southern California, is evident in our menu by Chef Derek Venutolo, which features a combination of classic California and contemporary coastal cuisine. our restaurant's decor incorporates both the tropical atmosphere of Miami's South Beach and the architecture of an open air pavilion.

The menu consist of dishes designed to emulate California cuisine with just a hint of Italian influence. The halibut salad, Dungeness crab-stuffed rainbow trout and the New York steak Caprese  are prime examples of Bono's innovative cuisine.

So, whether you are sitting at our 40 foot amber lit bar, seated at a table next to our color changing water wall or enjoying the sun and the ocean breezes outside on our patio, Bono's evokes a feeling of sensual, yet elegant dining.
“Another winner from Bono”, this “sophisticated” Californian “perfectly located” on LB’s “popular Belmont Shore” is “not nearly as stiff” as Christy’s, her first self-named restaurant; the “light, airy” space with a waterfall and “wraparound patio” is “so inviting you want to chat your way from lunch to dinner” while the “excellent” food, “fun martinis” and a “friendly staff” make it a “great experience every time”; this Cherished owner has “learned well from her dad, Sonny, about putting together a class-act eatery.”
