Only 4 tables, make a reservation. It's delicious. The owners made their own pizza oven. Everything we had was outstanding. The best meal we had in Panama!

The food here was amazing, especially for such a small venue. They have several small tables in the open air, where you can watch as they prepare your pizza from scratch in the wood fire oven. The owner herself is Italian, so many of the dishes seem to come from her home, such as the fresh pasta we sampled, or the tiramisu-like dessert made from her grandmother's recipe. Delicious and a definite bargain.

We just came back form a morning in El Valle and had a lunch at Buon Appetito was one of the highlights. It's just off the main drag, but if you ask people in town they can point you in the right direction. We met two friendly guys from Holland as we were searching for the restaurant and they decided to join us. The atmosphere was perfect, beautiful and remote, the service was quick and friendly, the pizza was delicious, and it was very affordable! ($16 for 2 fair sized personal pizzas plus two drinks -beer and soda).

We would definitely recommend this place and will certainly go back if we visit El Valle again. Definitely visit here if you are in the area, you will get your money's worth and have a wonderful meal.

In Panama you good pasta nor pizza are hard to find. Buon Appetito has one of the best pizzas of Panama and probably the best pasta I tried in Panama (you must try pasta with "Porto Fino" sauce). The decoration is simple but the food is sublime. Lorenzo and Bettina will make you fill at home. If you are a wine expert, the wine catalogue is not very tempting, so if you are looking to have your delicious pasta with an excellent wine, bring your own bottle and arrange a price for that with Lorenzo.
