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!

Usually do well with Tripadvisor reviews. My son and I came here for dinner and it was decidedly ho hum. Chicken parm with supposed home made wide pasta noodles was just so so. Chicken was tough, noodles overcooked and red sauce was thin with acidic taste. My son's pizza was lackluster. Service was lacking. Won't be returning.

The service was good as was the food. I thought it as just a little expensive for an Italian rest. but not too bad.

My mistake here was ordering a steak in an Italian restaurant. My husband ordered the veal parmegian and it was delicious; my steak dish not so much. In fact although it was suppose to be a sirloin, it tasted and looked like flank steak. However, I must say that when I did comment on it, the server told the Chef... More

My husband and I ate at Buono Appetito by chance - no one recommended it, just convenient to where we were staying. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The pasta is homemade. It was a really excellent meal at a reasonable price. Don't go to the Olive Garden for Italian food -- try Buono Appetito. I... More

Started out with the small plates which was very good. My wife ordered the ravioli which we could not find because they were drowned in too much sauce. I ordered the homemade pappardelle which was ok except the strands were stuck together in a clump and the portion was small for the price. For dessert were shared two mini canolis... More
