Loved the tiny close atmosphere and the staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. Awesome food and good wine selections. They also allow you to bring your own wine, so that is a plus!!

This is a regular restarurant for my wife and I and we are happy with the food and service. Friendly staff and manager. Excellent traditional Italian dishes !! Lobster ravioli in a Saffron Creme Sauce is outstanding, and the home made sausages are excellent. Wind prices are a bit high for the wines they offer. Good wine but not Excellent... More

Buono Tavola is a wonderful Italian find in Paso Robles. While visiting for a 'wine weekend' we wanted Italian and found this place through a magazine in the hotel room. Being Sunday we figured we would not need a reservation and just showed up. Got the last table at 600p! So know that reservations are a must! Service was great... More

We had been told how wonderful this place was and, it is, indeed a lovely restaurant with well training staff and appetizing food, but they really are a bit too proud of themselves. The wait staff was 'snooty' and the prices inflated. The antipasti plate was half what we have had in other places for twice the price. Wine prices... More

If you like Italian, no, if you LOVE Italian you need to try Buona Tavola. The food was just wonderful. The atmosphere is intimate and the staff is very welcoming and engaging. Be sure to make reservations.

The food was very good and we certainly got value for the dollars spect. The chicken with mushrooms and asparagus spear was fabulous according to my wife. I had the Fettuccine pasta with slowly braised chicken, duck, veal, and beef in an herbed meat sauce which took me back to many meals in Italy. I thought the $16 corkage fee... More

Visited this restaurant recently on an overnight stay in Paso Robles. Really loved it. The food was delicious especially the clam and mussels in spicy sauce as an appetiser. The wine waiter was amazing and recommended a local wine for us to try that was fantastic. The restaurant has a lovely feel to it we had a great evening would... More

Awesome food and service. We were here to celebrate our wedding. We had an early reservation at 5:30 pm and by 6:30 the restaurant was packed. Service never wavered. Would definitely recommend.

Lunch (or dinner) at this nice restaurant is a treat. The salmon was simply prepared, cooked to my liking and delicious, along with a trio of vegetables. A tricolore salad and glass or rose were the perfect accompaniments.
