Here's a neighborhood Italian joint with some of the friendliest service ever. Paige was our perfect server. She walked us thru the menu and she knew all of the beers on the beer list. The beer pours are generous and the list is local, so you can enjoy some Vermont brews with your dinner. Of course there is wine and... More

Just had dinner at this restaurant while in town for only one night. I did read all the reviews and was convinced that it was going to be wonderful. Well.... it wasn't. Just ok food with the exception of the brussels sprouts that were very nicely done. The owners need to listen to those who wrote reviews about the bread... More

The food is usually quite good and the service OK. t is not a very exciting environment, but has nothing particularly wrong with it. There is an outside eating area but it is very close to heavily traveled Route 7. the bar is large and... More

Buono Appetito was recommended by a staff person at a local B&B. When we drove up, I had my doubts but the experience was great. The place is warm and homey, the service excellent, and the food very good. We shared a plate of roasted Brussels sprouts; my wife had a burger cooked perfectly, and I had shrimp scampi over... More

We were en route to another restaurant when we just happened to see this one on the way and decided to stop. The atmosphere in the restaurant is awesome, and the dinner rolls are probably some of the best I have ever had. We ordered the Quattro Formaggio pizza and added chicken, and it was really good. The pizza was... More

Four and a baby, we all had excellent meals. My fettuccine and white clam sauce was tremendous. Good coffee, great espresso and fried dough for desert. All our meals were well prepared and the cocktails were more than sufficient.

This is a family owned restaurant... owned by the Cartulero family... it's multi-generational family friendliness! And the best, most creative Italian fare you could ask for! Great pizza... amazing freshly made pastas and other traditional dishes. Wonderful bar! all around... this is a favorite local treat.

Buonos has grown into a dynamic restaurant that is always appetizing with a comforting atmosphere. They have one of the most simple yet delicious pomodoro sauce with linguine. Also this is one of few restaurants that I am 100% comfortable with ordering something blindly from the chef because it is always prepared with detail and is consistently yummy. The menu... More

We were traveling and wanted a restaurant close to our hotel. What a surprise it was to find this, little Italian place. We were the only two their but as time went on it got crowded, The pizza was fantastic,waiter very attentive, and the price was good! Wish there were more of this brand closer to home!
