A delightful dinner in a pleasant setting. Our server Ryan was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the offerings that he made the evening even more fun. Fabulous fettuccine, Excellent eggplant, terrific tiramisu and great Grappa.

I would say this is the second best Italian restaurant in Paso Robles, they also have a location in San Luis, the food is consistently good, and the service is always warm and friendly.

The staff seemed okay, friendly but our waiter (cant remember his name) was the best. Very attentive. We came dressed in tshirts and jeans after... More

Whenever we are in town we have to eat here. Their antipasti is always a must and there is so many to choose from it's hard to decide. Just don't fill up too much because you will want to have a main course. This time we both had the lamb. I make lamb at home and would love to know... More

We were able to get a reservation for Saturday night, right when they opened. We were warmly greeted and we're the first ones, in what turned out to be a very busy restaurant. Every course was fantastic. Appetizers, salads, Main courses and desserts. A very good meal.

We tried this restaurant because of the great reviews and because we had already tried others in Paso Robles. We had the best dinner. We had originally made reservations for 2 but needed to add two more. When I called, only the patio was available for 4. It was perfect! There was little traffic on the street, even for a... More

I have spent a great deal of time in Tuscany and other parts of Italy and was very pleased to find Buona Tavola. It has a great menu with many choices, an outstanding wine menu, superb service and impressive ambiance. The prices are very fair given the quality/quantitiy of food. I went there twice in two nights for dinner.
