Flavorful Food & Amazing Service

My partner and I are area locals that really enjoy dining out and sampling the plethora of varying foods and venues that the greater Burlington area has to offer. I've frequented Buono Appetito on a few occasions and each time was a wonderful experience. The food here is perfectly cooked and... read more

We were in Burlington for a youth hockey game. Our family of 5 called for reservations, we were seated as soon as we walked in by a friendly hostess. Drinks and food came out quickly. Food was hot, fresh and prepared with care. Everything from scratch. Mushroom ravioli with a Gorgonzola cream sauce was soooo good. Breadsticks were a hit... More

I love this restaurant which is in my neighborhood. It is a mile walk and never disappoints. I love Tuesdays $6.00 burger night and $5.00 Heady Topper Thursdays. I love the beet salad and lamb ragu. By the way, kudos to you for not giving alcohol to minors as was strongly objected to in a previous poor rating. Better to... More

Buono Appetito is a perfect little slice of Italy! Food was very authentic, but not fancy. I had the lasagna and meatball - it was fabulous. We had a large party and had to wait a bit, but that was understandable. The service was spot on and the prices are VERY reasonable. As I said, we liked it so much... More

We arrived very near closing time after a long day of driving. The staff was wonderful and encouraged us to take our time. We had the Lasagne and it was the best I think I have ever tasted. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

This was our second visit to this restaurant. It's a nice place with two small dining rooms and a separate bar. Delicious Italian food with friendly service. Worth a try.

Upon first sight, this establishment looked like a quaint and lovely place to go for a glass of wine and a pizza with my sister after a long day at work. On the contrary, I have never had a more humiliating or embarrassing dining experience, ever. My sister and I are both over the age of 21 and have never... More

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
