Hayward is no known a a gourmet or even pretty good dinning. Buon Appetito is the one gem in town. A wonderful selection of entrees. I had ravioli in cream sauce with mushrooms and prosciutto. My cousin had pasta Friulana with a rich tomato sauce.....More

Me and my wife have been coming here for years. The food is consistently great and there is always special dishes to choose from outside of the normal menu. The sauce for the bread should be bottled and sold.

I love to have business lunches here. The food and service are consistently good. We usually can get a quiet table on the upper level. It is perfect for a lunch meeting. I love the ravioli dishes.

Yep. Only place in Hayward and not all that great, but depends on what you order. Stay away from the pasta or tell the server to not drown in sauce. They make pretty good drinks but food is mediocre at best. Can be fun on...More

I have been going to Buon Appetito for quite sometime and they never disappoint. My favorite is the Conchiglie al Pollo. My better half ALWAYS gets the Petto di Poll al carciofi. Always good. Easy to get to and lots of parking around.
