What a lovely experience at this restaurant! This place is a small locally owned establishment with very cheerful and helpful staff. Great wines coupled with wonderful food. What more could you want?

We enjoyed a late lunch. Great salad; fresh and well seasoned. Meatball sub with meat balls and " hot "fries. Traditional three meatballs, really great flavor. Highly recommended.

We were looking for a light meal and decided to try Buono Appetito . Now I know Italian food can be really rich and meals are large.

The shrimp bisque is to die for. Our entrees were all good. The service was good, our waiter was friendly. It took a while to get our food even though the restaurant was nearly empty and was kind of expensive but we expected that.

We had a reservation and were seated right away. Brought us water. We waited about ten minutes for a waiter to take our drink order. Brought those back a little later.

Arrived 15 minutes before closing (9:00pm) on a saturday night and were seated right away. Ordered arancini, antipasti salad, pizza, and lobster stuffed ravioli. Food was served quickly, service was attentive and not rushed, and the prices were reasonable. A good choice.

I have rediscovered this restaurant recently. Delicious food, great service, and comfortable setting. A short drive from downtown Burlington. Eggplant parmigiana is the best I've had anywhere.

When I lived in Vermont as a teen, we always ordered delivery. I came back to town as a 43 year old and finally went inside to eat with my family. Very quaint with a sweet, young staff. All 4 of us were part of the clean plate club!
