My friend really wanted Olive Garden so we tried to go. 45 min wait... um no! So I told him let's try this place. Walked in and seated quickly. It has a real authentic Italian feel. Bread is served with olive oil and a delicious garlic spread. Not salty bread sticks like that other place. The... read more

This restaurant in downtown Hayward is lovely. It's right on the main road coming from the freeway, namely "A" street and has its own parking lot. The food is excellent, the service is great and the tiiramisu is to die for. They have tables for two and tables for 6 or 8. All tables have linen tablecloths and napkins. In... More

As we ordered wine which arrived but other tables that arrived later were served. We had to call the waitress and ask were is... More

The calzone was so perfect that I plan to go back! Really the chef knows how to prepare it. In our party of four the others had paninis and they were not too thrilled with their sandwiches. I guess stick to pasta dishes! The service was nicely paced and the waiter was pleasant and methodical. A good restaurant in the... More

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
