Enjoyable Meal

We enjoyed our meal at Buono Appetito very much. The food was very good, the restaurant was casual and quiet, our server was great. After a long ride to Burlington on New Year's day we particularly enjoyed the low key and relaxing atmosphere. I had ravioli porcini in a white sauce and it was... read more

Yummy Italian restaurant. Best part of our meal were the brussel sprouts and the sweet and helpful waitress. The pasta entrees that we ordered were good, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Excellent service, great food, nice ambiance. We had the fried brussels sprouts appetizer which was wonderful. We ordered chicken parm and eggplant parmesan and both were done to perfection.

We chose to ignore the negative reviews and trust the majority of reviewers who rated this restaurant highly. We were not disappointed. The food was great as was the service! I had the pasta with clams, prawns, mussels, and scallops. The seafood was plentiful. The red sauce was very nice. I would recommend this restaurant to a friend.

When I checked in to the Days Inn in Shelburne I asked the front desk for some hotel recommendations. They had a book with menus but he suggested that I try Buono. I really wasn't in the mood for Italian but since I had driven quite a few miles that day and this restaurant was right across the street from... More

I've driven by this place many times but this was the first time eating there. It started with great service, seating was very nice and the atmosphere was calm. We had lasagna and fettuccine, with fried brussel sprouts to start. Sounds bad but they were really good! The lasagna was meatless but very light and tasty. I recommend giving it... More

We stopped for dinner and had mixed results. The lasagna was good. The spaghetti was not well drained so the sauce was diluted and watery. It also was 'fresh' and had not been allowed to cook down and thicken. The flavor was Ok, but did not meet our expectations for a fine Italian meal. Service was good.

Very beautiful building and delicious restaurant we found while traveling through shelborne, nice service, delicious food, real cheese on all the tables instead of that fake shaker cheese! I was impressed! The only complaint I have was that the Alfredo sauce I had was kinda grainy and I personally thought my pasta and broccoli was undercoated, and it was a... More
