Just OK...

Had delivery. Arrived on time. Order taken correctly and person was pleasant. Salad was fresh. Roll fresh. Meaty Lasagna, not so meaty. Too much cheese for me. So much could not taste anything else in it. Will try something else next time. Lemon cake was delicious!!

I have been coming to SPB 2x/yr for the last 8 years and this is one of the must stop places. Pizza is excellent. I travel sometimes with a Long Islander who says the pizza reminds him of home. They have many more dishes which are very good. You can't go wrong here. We order take out and eat it... More

Dropped by Buona Pizza with a friend and was pleasantly surprised at its quaintness and food quality. We sat in a cute area in the back of the restaurant with.a view of the water and boats. We had two different dishes and both were delicious. The coffee and lemon cake desert were yummy too! The menu was huge with something... More

This is an old pizza joint in a strip mall, but it has a few patio tables. The pizza is very tasty, and you can order by the slice. We also had a good, standard meatball sandwich. Staff was pleasant.

Their pizza was really good. It was brick oven with fresh mozzarella cheese, nice and crispy and quite large. We ate off of this pizza for two days. It was just a bit hard to find since it was in a strip mall and they didn't have a sign you could see from the road. If you go, just realize... More

It seems like this place like several others we'd encountered were unable to handle Spring Break week. Can businesses in a beach town not plan for this week??? or time of year??? My daughter arrived at 615 or so and no one acknowledged us. I finally asked a man (owner?) behind the register if their was a hostess. He said... More

The outside looks crowded enough but inside is total mayhem. We waited 10 minutes before we seated OURSELVES. And the waited another 10 minutes before a waiter even acknowledged us as customers. The waitress who finally showed up was not good. She tossed some menus on the table and lean on the table when taking our order. The food was... More

There's no better pizza in SPB. That's not saying much. But that's what beer is for. I think I've said enough.

We walked in with 15 people and they just couldn't accommodate us without a reservation. The pizza was pretty good. Had a slice of white pizza while waiting and it was really good. They ran out of food right after we ordered takeout. The garlic knots looked really good and the cheese bread however they were out and we couldn't... More

Could NOT believe how absolutely rude they were. Hostess looked (and acted) like she was coming off a meth binge. Threw our menus on the table and walked away. "Waiter" walked out and said "whaddya want." Though there was no one else in there at what would have been dinner time, they managed to scare off their only customers before... More
