Had a wonderful dinner with friends at Buon Appetito on a recent trip to Foxwoods. The recommendation came from a nearby Hotel. It did not disappoint. The food was fabulous, service was great and when we asked a question the staff could not answer the owner promptly came over with the answer. He then shared some recipe tips and could... More

We had the pleasure of dining at Buon Appetito last weekend while attending a wedding in Stonington....it was a truly wonderful experience! Although it was our first time visiting the restaurant, we were treated like family. The entire experience from the décor to the food was amazing and our waitress, Liza, was the best! The service was impeccable and we... More

We had eggplant Parmesan, wedge salad and a side order of meatballs. All were delicious. It's a casual unpretentious atmosphere with friendly service. The owner is charming and her presence makes the restaurant even more appealing, because she obviously cares about her customers. We will return for sure.

We called and asked if we could make a reservation for two at 645 and they said not until 730 was available and even then you would be on a wait list. We were starving and said screw it lets show up and see if they say something different. Guess what?! We got seated in less than 15 minutes.. Whoever... More

Ten minutes from Foxwoods, ample parking both sides of building.Their pizzas are noteworthy, fine dining not so.Food portions are expensive and not proportional to the price. Plates are not consistent (one entree covered almost half the table, and could have been served similar in size to others ordered). But the ONE item most noted (NOT noteworthy) was the intrusion (or... More

Went to have a little snack & some drinks with a few friends. Lanie was our bartender & she was fantastic. Some of my friends couldn't decide on what they wanted, so she made some suggestions & made them each the perfect drink! We tried a couple apps, the calamari & grilled focaccia. Both were spectacular, the calamari was light... More

My friend, boyfriend and I sat at the bar and had Lanie. She suggested an awesome organic tomato salad, which was to die for! She was knowledgeable on the wine and the food. I will definitely come back to see her!

Left Boston to meet family in Connecticut. Well worth the long ride. The food was delicious. We had the baked stuffed shells, homemade pappardelle pasta bolognese, and two different salmon dishes which were cooked perfectly. Their soups were excellent. Well worth the price. The waitress was very attentive and personable. Can't wait to make a return trip to Buon Appetito.
