Try the garlic bread!

Food is always fantastic. The restaurant is a it cramped but we do take out and truly enjoy. The chicken gorganzola is amazing, specials are great, salad dressing is good, just love garlic!

We have eaten there a few times with a friend and the service and food is always excellent. It is a small but friendly establishment on a main road thru Canton. The dishes are Italian and the portions are typically large, often resulting in take home for the next day. Although at times it seems crowded we have never felt... More

My wife and I have been to Buon Appetito twice over the last two years ... both times for our anniversary. The first time we enjoyed our experience. The garlic bread is great, bringing your own wine is nice, and the food is delicious (although over priced for pasta dishes). This past week we went back to celebrate our 5th... More

First of all, I must address the negative reviewer. This place is tiny, like a NYC bistro. Get over it, it's part of the experience. Reservations are a NORMAL part of life, get over that as well. The food is fresh, and the owner likes to know how much to buy/prepare. It's not brain surgery. Try to think beyond your... More

The sauces make all the dishes here! If you love pasta, you certainly need to try here! I had such a beautiful meal with my family!

best Italian food in the Farmington Valley. Interior is on the small side, but the food is top notch. Another bonus, it is BYOB. Garlic Bread is a must. Every pasta dish has been superb. Service is A+ as well.

The dishes are out of this world. The array of appetizers is fantastic. Creativity abounds with bursting flavors. The main dishes are very delicious and large. That you can bring your own booze truly helps keep the cost down. However the tightness of seating the often stifling temperature and the very poor acoustics keep me from going often. I have...

I'm hearing a bunch of negative reviews on a place that should have nothing by rave reviews. I'm sure the disappointed diners may have been looking for something like a pizzaria. This is not a Pizzaria. This is, however, an authentic, Itialian restaurant with wonderful meals and BYOB. I've been here a number of times and everytime this place impressed... More

Hm, sad to say, I had hoped for more, despite the bad reviews on here. Firstly, two waitresses work together, one is really nice, the other, well, don't get on her bad side!! Salads are just plain lettuce with dressing. Boring. Garlic bread that costs extra, too small. Pasta dishes just ok, sauce not anything out if the ordinary. It's... More

First off, the place is so small that you can watch the chef and the dishwasher as you eat! It's located in a strip mall. When I walked in the door no one greeted me so I sat myself (there were only 2 tables occupied). The waitress came to my table and asked if I had a reservation (I laughed... More
