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

By far, one of the best restaurants we have ever been to. A superb value. The staff is without a doubt, the friendliest most efficient group. Great portions, wonderful plate presentation, inventive selections and prompt attention

This is one of our favorite Italian restaurants. The portions are huge and the food is awesome. I haven't had a bad dish yet! The macaroni and cheese is to die for and the portion is definitely enough for two meals and the prices are very reasonable. We eat here at least two or three times a month.

A 'local' type restaurant in a strip type shopping center. we were greeted and seated promptly on a Friday night. Warm rolls and dipping oil were on our table as we sat down. My wife ordered the prime rib special Medium. I ordered the chicken pot pie. Both dishes came quickly. Hers was a purple rare. We sent it back... More

Buona Vita is all around excellent: the food is tasty, the portions very ample, and the service personable. Their menu specials change frequently and are flavorful.
