Great food every time

Great home made Italian food. Small, quiet environment good for date night. Everything on the menu is fantastic, and great service every time.

After having first eaten at this restaurant a year ago, we were in the area so we decided to return. We were not disappointed. It was Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. and it was crowded, but we were seated very quickly. Judging by the interactions we observed between the wait staff and customers, we concluded that the overwhelming majority were... More

Food is wonderful. Usually busy which proves the quality of the food. Also the portions are large. My wife and I usually take out and eat at home.

The food tasted pretty bad and place seemed dingy and dirty. The cups were dirty and had a funky smell to them. The bathroom was utterly disgusting and we haven't felt well the whole day after eating here.

Used a Groupon for this visit. The place was busy. The adjoining room was filled with a private party. Our waitress was friendly and offered entree recommendations. Mr. D-Nicer had the lasagna. I had chicken Sorrentino. Both were good and portions were generous. Only real complaint was the Italian dressing had way too much vinegar. Try the ranch, it was... More

We are big fans of local non-chain restaurants. Buona Vita is one of our favorite places. I always feel warm and cozy at this restaurant. I have had a scallop dish that I love as well as many parmagiana favorites. My 17 yr. old and his girl friend even dine there often. I have never had a bad experience at... More

We've been dining at Buona Vita almost every week for over 3 years now and are still not tired of it. Local non-chain restaurants with fresh and delicious food are so hard to find. Service and value are always exceptional. Steak tips marsala, chicken parm and pan seared scallops are my favorites. If you check your local paper you usually... More

I've been to this restaurant numerous times, but every time I feel that it's better than the last! From the tasty drinks to the delicious appetizers to the delectable entrees, this place is by far the best in the area! If you haven't been here yet and you enjoy tasty Italian food, do yourself a favor and stop in!

We ate in the restaurant section, as opposed to the bar, which seemed to be hosting a small gathering. We read the reviews and thought that this would be a good spot for a late night meal. It was. We like to eat at non-chain locally-owned restaurants, and this was definitely one. My dining companion of 40+ years (my wife)... More

This is, by far, my favorite Italian restaurant. The food is fresh and delicious. I'm a big eater and I always have leftovers for another dinner. I've had many dishes, but the chicken parm is my favorite. I have no idea how that poor chicken was able to keep her head up with a breast so large. Going back again... More
