When we want to have a lovely meal out, we go to Buon Appetito. The food is consistently delicious. You could fill up on the fresh bread and the spread that they bring while you are waiting for your meal. That would be a shame, though, since the menu has such delicious offerings. I usually stick to my favorite Osso... More

Our "go to" place for comfort food. Extensive menu offers variety, consistency & quality. Reasonably priced for what and where it is. Have unconditionally recommended to family, friends.

In the past six months we have eaten at his well know Hayward Restaurant and each time the food was excellent. The food comes hot, the service attentive, the sauces all taste unique and have a serious Italian flavor. Distinctive food with a flair makes this a site to repeat. We have had an after Memorial Services lunch for 45,... More

Great drinks, great food and great service. My wife had the butternut squash ravioli with the sage cream sauce and she loved it. I had the angel hair pasta with shrimp and I was in heaven. There were seven of us so I don't remember what everybody had, but I do know that everyone was very happy with their dinner,... More

We brought my mother in law here, it was her first time. She loved it. My husband and her both had the swordfish. I had the raviolis. Just wonderful food and a great price for the value.

Location: It's right off of A street on a corner. Right across from the old school Hayward Video, and it is also across from the plaza where is it safeway or luckys? I forgot one of those grocery stores where the jamba juice is at as well. (if you are familiar with the area you know what I mean) Customer... More

Beautifully decorated inside and lovely patio outside with a tile mosaic. However, it wasn't anything I haven't seen before. We arrived early evening and there were more people at the bar vs the restaurant. After we placed our order, it took awhile to get our appetizer of Torta di Granchio (crab cakes). Not sure why the entree (Fettuccine Alfredo with... More

Saturday evening, the kids went for sushi, and my wife and I went to grab a sandwich at Harry's Hofbrau; but it was slammed, so I Mapquested "Italian Food nearby" and Buon Appetito came up. Checked out the reviews on TripAdvisor and off we went. I'd noticed the restaurant before and actually told my wife I had a good feeling... More

My teenage sons and I dined at this restaurant this past weekend. Not very busy and we got seated immediately. I ordered the Fettuccine al Frutti di Mare which was loaded with seafood and was passable. My one son ordered a cheese pizza which was undercooked and tasted as if it had been previously frozen. The second son ordered Ravioli... More

My wife and I have been dining here since they first opened. They have expanded twice now and added the outside deck. Great food and very friendly servers. We have shared this place with many friends and family over the years and none have been disappointed. This restaurant will surprise you and has certainly improved dining in Hayward.
