“Pretty good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2011

Some authentic NY Italian food in a big, very suburban type setting. The dining area is rather featurless and while clean, could use some updating. There are a couple tables outside, which is nice at times, though the view is of the parking lot.

The pizza is good, and subs pretty good. I did not like the pepperoni rolls or calzones, because they just had way too much cheese, and almost no meat. The cheese is good mozzerella, but with such a generous serving size, it was just too much for me.

“Really good pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2009

It's a bit pricey ($20 for a large) but I would pay it again for the taste. It was a very large pizza with excellent taste. I didn't stay and eat, but there seemed like a good amount of seating without any noise and it wasn't crowded.

“Pretty good pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2008

Buon Appetito should not really be compared to NYC authentic style. It's not a Patsy's / Grimaldi's quality, but it is a pretty good pie.

The restaurant itself is bare bones, walk-up ordering at the counter with plenty of other items on the menu -- which I didn't get the chance to try during this visit.

“No better pizza than Buon Appetito - authentic Italian cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2008

Have been a frequent customer since the Merone brothers opened. They have a great formula - fresh ingredients, items prepared daily, original family recipes. You could drink their sauces, they're so good! Ample portions usually mean a meal to take home with you for later.
