The pasta dishes are generous and freshly made. The ravioli was delicious, the wine selection great and the service warm and personable. They make their own sausage...which is tasty.

We have eaten elsewhere in Paso often and enjoy most of the downtown restaurants. We decided on Italian this time and chose to try Buona Tavola over the other we’ll known and more highly rated Italian restaurant a few blocks away. The Cesar salad was...More
