Nice Italian food, nice people too

After a long day of driving we arrived here in need of a nice dinner. This place hit the spot. A large refreshing Arnold Palmer, a very fresh and tasty dinner roll, I ordered an 8" personal pizza with ham and pineapple. I was very surprised to get real ham (not deli ham) and fresh pineapple.

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

I ordered the usual, while stting in the bar area and my husband ordered the steak special of the night, strip steak with mashed potato and... 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

After a few disappointing pizzas in Vermont, we finally found a good one! Starters were all tasty (sales & garlic bread), all the mains were great - spaghetti, ravioli and an enormous pizza! It was so good we finished it all between us. Waiters were attentive and friendly and service was quick. The only down side could be the location... More

When we are on vacation, we like to try different local restaurants, and eat in a different place each night. This one was so good, that we made an exception and ate here three nights in a row (it might have been more if we discovered it sooner!). The food was DELICIOUS!!! Nice casual ambiance, reasonable prices... & friendly, efficient... More

We went on a Monday night, so it was a slow night. We really enjoyed the experience. Our service was good and the food was great. We ordered one of the off the menu specials the caprice salad, a pizza, and chicken parm with freshly made noodles. Everything was delightful. I added steak to my salad and it was tender,... More

Buono Appetito provides a wide range of Italian specialties along with local beers and a fine assortment of wines. I have eaten there several times over the years and I find consistently good food including homemade pasta dishes. Atmosphere is 'family,' not fancy.
