This small, unassuming restaurant is one of my favorite Italian restaurants. The food is fantastic, the owner is a wonderful and humble man who takes great pride in his work, and the portions are so large that you will probably get to enjoy it again for lunch the next day. There's no liquor sold here, but you're welcome to bring... More

It was hot out. It's been that was in Connecticut for the past three weeks so although we had no reservation or even intention of eating here for the first time, we were happy to find a place to dine with great AC. Without a reservation we chose to sit in the only unreserved table which was a deuce behind... More

Have been going to Buon Appetito for almost 24 years, and have yet to be disappointed. We are long time Connecticut residents that have moved south, but always make a point to visit this great Canton restaurant when we travel north. The food is very good and very garlicky. The wine is great, because it is BYOB! Reservations definitely needed... More

20 years ago I used to go to Buon Appetito all the time. Without thinking about it, and for no reason in particular I have only been there twice in the last...eight years. I went there three days ago on 5-27-16 and had a solid, enjoyable meal. You're not going to have a bad meal at BA. They have a... More

We have eaten there a few times with a friend and the service and food is always excellent. It is a small but friendly establishment on a main road thru Canton. The dishes are Italian and the portions are typically large, often resulting in take home for the next day. Although at times it seems crowded we have never felt... More

My wife and I have been to Buon Appetito twice over the last two years ... both times for our anniversary. The first time we enjoyed our experience. The garlic bread is great, bringing your own wine is nice, and the food is delicious (although over priced for pasta dishes). This past week we went back to celebrate our 5th... More

Food is always fantastic. The restaurant is a it cramped but we do take out and truly enjoy. The chicken gorganzola is amazing, specials are great, salad dressing is good, just love garlic!

First of all, I must address the negative reviewer. This place is tiny, like a NYC bistro. Get over it, it's part of the experience. Reservations are a NORMAL part of life, get over that as well. The food is fresh, and the owner likes to know how much to buy/prepare. It's not brain surgery. Try to think beyond your... More

The sauces make all the dishes here! If you love pasta, you certainly need to try here! I had such a beautiful meal with my family!

best Italian food in the Farmington Valley. Interior is on the small side, but the food is top notch. Another bonus, it is BYOB. Garlic Bread is a must. Every pasta dish has been superb. Service is A+ as well.
