The decor is dated but the food is great. I was impressed with the plating (presentation) of the food. Our server Toby was very friendly, and hard working. My only complaint was that the food was over-salted.

We had lunch at Buona Vita today and it was excellent! I had the veal marsala and the veal was done to perfection - tender and juicy. Others at my table really enjoyed a 7-cheese mac&cheese, a huge Chef's salad, and a "make your own pasta". As if that isn't enough, all meals except the chef salad came with either... More

I've never had food from here that I didn't love. Their burgers are great, their soup is great, even their bread is great. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a good, hearty meal.

This is one of the few places in ct with great gluten free options for Italian, including delicious gluten free pizza. Everything on the menu is fantastic, including the drinks. Great for both families and couples. Highly recommend!

We stopped in on a whim and had an enjoyable lunch. The place was not very busy. The waitress was very nice and attentive. Portions are large and we particularly enjoyed our wraps.

I stopped in after work by myself because my husband was traveling. The table was dirty when I sat down and the bartender wiped it with a bar napkin. Not very effective, so I decided to order a drink and get my order to go. My drink was good and I was happy with it. While waiting, 2 employees had... More

Buona Vita is somewhat hard to find but well worth the efforts. Service is first class and the menu is extensive. The pizza selections are many. Portions are large and tasteful. Fresh baked bread with dipping oil and mozzarella cheese is a nice added touch.

This place was new to us, we purchased a Groupon and tried it. We were surprised as its a bit hidden in a plaza looks small from outside, but we were pleased by the awesome service and good food. We would recommend this place. Nel and Tina

Went here on whim. Didn't expect much as it's located ,almost hidden,in a strip mall. 13 of us and all meals were tremendous. From pizza to Salmon everybody enjoyed their meal. Highest quality food and great service. Interior is dated pizza parlor dining room; if that makes any sense. But don't be fooled, this is a very pleasant dining experience;... More
