Excellent Italian food

This is one of our favorite Italian restaurants. The portions are huge and the food is awesome. I haven't had a bad dish yet!

The macaroni and cheese is to die for and the portion is definitely enough for two meals and the prices are very reasonable. We eat here at least two or three times a month.

My wife ordered the prime rib special Medium. I ordered the chicken pot pie. Both dishes came quickly. Hers was a purple rare. We sent it back... More

Buona Vita is all around excellent: the food is tasty, the portions very ample, and the service personable. Their menu specials change frequently and are flavorful.

We visited this restaurant with friends who live in the area. They were slammed the night we went. It was a Sunday night. We had about a 20 minute wait for a party of 6. It was well worth it. Amanda C was our wait person and she was very congenial. After we were seated the service was fast and... More

The best chicken parmesan and chicken wings around! Portions are generous and the quality is excellent. This little neighborhood pizza place has been growing their business and their following with entrée specials and specialty drinks that change daily so there is always something new to try. The bar is well-separated from the dining room which is nice for noise control,... More

Visited for dinner. Never a disappointment. Chicken parm was excellent. Dining room was buzzing with diners and wait staff. Portions are plentiful, pasta cooked perfectly, great homemade sauces. Very pleased with overall dining experience although not a fancy restaurant or location.

My husband and I were here the other evening for dinner and we fell in love with the place. The menu is extensive so everyone can find something that they like! He got the chicken parm which is his go to when we go out. The service was friendly and quick, would definitely recommend this place!

My first visit to the bar side. Very friendly staff and great service. I'm new to the area so the server told me about the happy hour specials T-F. Kelly is an asset to this establishment!

Went to try this restaurant with a Groupon. We called to see if they would be open for lunch mid afternoon, and were assured that they were. When we arrived on a hot summer day around 3 PM we saw the doors were open, and the inside was dark, hot, and no one was there. We saw two men in... More
