Excellent

We had this pizza, and cannolis, two nights in a row. It was delicious. Very nice staff as well. We had take out both nights. Everything is home made. Highly recommended. Priced reasonably well.

We waited ten minutes for a table. After being seated it was another ten minutes for a waitress to finally take our order. We ordered two slices, a salad, and garlic knots. We asked for the knots to come out first, which they did after 35 minutes. They were inedible. Covered in oil and way too much garlic. They were... More

I would drive all the way back to Fl. just for this pizza. I've always been a fan of brick-oven, New York style pizza, but this was by far the best that I had ever had. And, they even delivered to our hotel.

A very small restaurant, I would recommend booking a table in advance, we did this every easily by e-mail, we ate there twice during our stay, once we shared a starter and pizza, and the second time had pasta meals, both of which were excellent, the whole atmosphere was lovely, will certainly eat there again on our next visit to...

My husband described it as "the best pizza I have ever eaten". We ate as much as we could and carried out as much more.

On this occasion we opted for take out. We ordered the margherita pizza which was perfectly cooked. The crust had a nice crunch to it and the ingredients were nice and fresh. Whether you are dining in or taking out this is a good choice.

I have to say I enjoyed my visit to Buona Pizza Restaurant. The, italian food-pizza was the best I have had since I moved to Florida. I also enjoyed being able to sit on the waterside of the Restaurant, .Sitting outside was just great and is part of what you want when you live Florida

This great little Italian restaurant is located in strip mall. From the outside it doesn't look like much but once you get inside it is quant. We sat out back with a inter-coastal view. It was really nice and quiet. Had the bruschetta and margarita pizza to share. It was all excellent. Would go back again!

There are many pizza places in St. Pete Beach but Buono's is the best without a doubt. They only have two sizes, big and bigger, unless you just buy a slice. All the ingredients are fresh.

I was in and had the new Pizza BBQ CHICKEN PIZZA it was delicious and the Parmesan crusted Grouper was delicious also. The staff is so polite and friendly and German and Julio are very nice and helpful and polite. If you are in the mood for some authentic Italian food and the best New York pizza in Saint Pete...
