Our meal was absolutely delicious from start to finish. We had two very fresh salads and two delicious pasta dishes. We also had the banana bread pudding and the Apple crostata. Of course, it’s always a nice touch to finish dinner off with complimentary lemoncello....It was a very inviting and pretty environment and we will definitely be back.More

We discovered this restaurant over a year ago, and it's hands-down our favorite! Their Italian dishes remind me of my own recent trips to Tuscany, and their rib eye steak is on par with the best steak houses. Their specials are always great choices, and...they have a big selection of foods made from organic ingredients. Beyond the amazing food, however, is warmth of their staff. We feel like family every time we go.More

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary in the area where we were married and had dinner at Buon Appetito on Saturday night. Emily served our table and I was blown away by her friendliness, efficiency, humor, connection, and joy in her work. She'd already filled...Justin's water glass five times before dinner was served; she cracked jokes with our two granddaughters at their own levels, attentively watched to make sure we had what we needed. The final glowing act was when she brought ice cream to our 3 year old granddaughter. She had put on a smiley face, whipped cream and a cherry on the vanilla ice cream. Elise took one look at it and pulled a face! So without batting an eyelid, Emily whisked it away and told Elise to pretend it never happened. Less than a minute later, a single scoop of plain vanilla ice cream appeared. ... I'd go back to the restaurant just to enjoy Emily!More

A good friend recommended we try this restaurant and boy was he right on target.We arrived at the restaurant and within minutes the wonderful co-owner Alex found us a table outside with a wonderful view. The service was incredible with our waitress coming within minutes...and taking out our drink orders. Soon after delivering our drinks she delivered the best warm homemade bread and olive oil we’ve had in years. She took our order and and unlike most restaurants, she delivered the food herself instead of someone who had no idea who ordered what. We really appreciate when the same waitress follows up with everything. The food was delicious and the price was reasonable. She was very attentive and made sure while passing us by that we were happy with our meals. After finishing them, she offered dessert which we had to pass on only because we were too satiated to have anything more despite the fact that we saw the most delicious desserts going by us to other tables. When she brought the check it was accompanied by homemade lemonciallo Which we could not turn away. It’s a wonderful way to finish a wonderful meal. We highly recommend this restaurant. The atmosphere, the homemade bread and olive oil, the ambience, the service and the quality of the food was superb. Joel and CindyMore

Mirela and her incredible staff provided my guests and I an unforgettable evening on my birthday. For any kind of event or even just a romantic dinner, I 100% recommend reserving the private wine cellar dining room. It's intimate and gorgeous. Mirela, made everyone feel...at home with her lovely presence and amazing stories. She and her husband have built an exquisite dream with this establishment. The food is nothing short of spectacular. You'll admire the care in the preparation of every dish, and you'll be enlightened by their refreshing and crisp house limoncello. I can not thank Mirela, and EVERYONE at Buon Appetito, enough for the masterpiece of a night they entertained. Dine there once, and you'll be enchanted by the Buon Appet-tritos you'll receive.More

This is a lovely restaurant with beautiful flowers and a nice fountain outside where you walk in. The outdoor area to eat looked nice as well but we sat inside.  The food here was great! We were not given a kids menu for our son...but they could make a kid pasta or grilled cheese. However, looking at their restaurant there were a few more dishes they would have made him. Their bread was very good and we got the grilled focaccia bread one which was delicious (but a little messy lol)! I also got the chicken parmesean with home made pasta which was very good and enjoyed the flavor of the sauce with homemade papperdelle pasta which was good! My husband got the shrimp scampi with homemade pasta which was very good and garlicky. We also got a pepperoni pizza which was good and thin. The sauce and cheese on the pizza was very good! The red Sangrias were good! Their desserts are made in house. I took a tiramasu home which was good and not overly drenched or soggy. The night ended with a complimentary housemade lemoncello which was really good and not over powering.  Service was okay and we felt the food came out quite slow for a Sunday evening and it was not busy. However,  the food was great and we will certainly be back!More
