The soup of the day was so good!!! Great place to stop if you love Italian food. Our hotel gave us a list of places to dine and we happy with choosing this location.

Recently dined here on recommendation of our hotel and it did not disappoint. The food was wonderful and our server was very helpful without being pushy. We had one minor problem with the dessert taking longer to come than it should but the apology of the manageress compensated for the slight annoyance. If we're ever in Paso again we'd eat... More

This restaurant was recommended by our Innkeepers Lois and Mark at Belvino Viaggio. We met Alex and he is totally attentive to your every need while being very busy as this place is a hotspot for locals. I love the eggplant dish I was served with the right amount of everything...loved the cheese in it. My friend ordered a beautiful... More

We have dined here several times and always have a great experience. The chefs do a really nice job with a smaller menu without all the predictable lasagna and spaghetti (you won't find either here unless it's a special). The staff is attentive without making you feel rushed and the wine menu sufficient for most with corkage available which is... More

6 of us had a lovely dinner our first night in Paso. This was a recommendation from a friend who is a Foodie like me! Every one of our meals was memorable-great food, great wine, great friends! What more can you ask for! Cozy ambiance, and great service make this a 'must dine' when you are in Paso!

Just the right size. Cozy and not over powered with noise like you are in a larger place. The food was excellent. My husband had the rack of lamb and devoured it. I had a pasta dish which I could not finish as it was too much after a good sized appetizer. Service was good and it was not overly... More

One of the best meals we've ever had! Special seafood pasta was exceptional and the service was friendly and attentive. We're glad we made the trip over from Cambria.

This restaurant came highly recommended from our hotel desk staff and by one of the local vineyards (where we had tasted wine). I went on their website before making reservations to make sure they offered gluten free pasta. Every dish indicated that gluten free pasta was available. The restaurant is terribly expensive....with everything ala carte. It turns out that they... More

It's a very busy place, especially on weekends, when the wine touristas flock to the area. was able to get in on a Saturday evening using online reservations. The space is small and gives you a close-knit feeling. Nice selections on the menu with some unique items, not the usual italian fare. While we had a brief wait for our... More

This restaurant is a high end Italian Restaurant. It is a place for good food, attentive service, tasteful décor including white tablecloths. The prices are reasonable for a restaurant of this caliber. I recommend Buona Tavola for a great food experience.
