“Good food and beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Try the sampler of local beers served on a Vermont-shaped platter. The fried Brussels sprouts are tasty, as are the pizzas. We had a roasted peach/gorgonzola combo that was out of this world. Two things that kept me from rating them excellent - linguine with clam sauce contained pasta that was a flat ribbon that waitress said was homemade linguine. This did not go well with the sauce, which also contained two large clams that did not open - this should've been noticed by the chef. One other recommendation to the restaurant - the lighting in the dining room on the left is too glaring and causes eye strain in your patrons.

“Great food, great service, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

Wonderful dining experience at Buono Appetito. We found the server very knowledgeable about he menu and how it is prepared. My salmon was delicious and the presentation over couscous was both different and added greatly to the dish. Their personal pizza was very good and satisfying. Great experience.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Food was fantastic! We ate there twice and probably would have more if they were open for lunch. I had the Bolognese pasta which was delicious. My husband had the sausage lasagna. He said it was very good but didn't think sausage was in there. 2nd trip we had pizza which was excellent. Both times the service was great. Really enjoyed it.

“Friendly place serving good Italian favorites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I dined at Buono Appetito twice in the past five days. The first time, I had a great caesar salad and an excellent pizza. Glad they had one of my favorite toppings, artichoke hearts, which many places don't offer. Prompt service without being at all rushed, and since I was there meeting an old friend, we appreciated the relaxed pace.
Went there again tonight, and had the fettuccini alfredo. Sauce was quite good, and if anything, there was a bit too much of it. A much nicer situation than when a restaurant serves it with too little. And again, a relaxed experience with friendly wait staff.
Very nice, and reasonable prices, too.
