Great atmosphere. We chose to sit at the bar since it was early afternoon and were greeted with a wonderful smile by our... More

What a great atmosphere. We got hugs at the door 😊 Our waitress Liza was so friendly. Had great conversations with her and she was right there if we needed anything. Food was sooooo yummy. I had chicken Parmesan. My friends loved their meals too. We can't wait to go back!!!

We had the pleasure to gather for our annual girls night out at Buon Appetito and we were once again blown away with the food and service! Mirella, the owner, arranged for us to have the side room all to ourselves and since we only numbered about 20 she suggested family style dining instead of the buffet we had last... More

Excellent salmon with mango chutney over risotto and ribeye steak, banana bread pudding for dessert. The bread and olive oil for dipping are delicious. The service is great and they never take the plates til everyone is finished eating. Etiquette other places need to follow.
