the food is good here. The portion size is usually quite large. I usually eat egg plant here--large quantity comes with salad and bread and oil with cheese shavings in it. I have had their salad with chicken which is also good

We came for happy hour and everything was delicious. Got the happy hour drink specials along with 1/2 price appetizers. Got the delicious risotto balls with cheese garlic bread along with a sangria. For dinner I got the house calzone which was enough to feed 3 people. Came home with an extra meal. So for 3 meals and an alcoholic... More

My spouse and I LOVE Buonavita! Groupon got us through the door and we've been returning again and again for 2 years. Their specials are always so good, we love their seafood dishes. Also the pizza is our absolute favorite! The spinach garlic ricotta pizza is our favorite. As a side note, the food is the best when the owner... More

Can't say enough good about this Italian restaurant located in a tiny strip-mall located off the beaten path. The staff of this restaurant have one goal in mind and that is to please the customer. The owner/chef gets it right each time. The wait staff are friendly and very efficient. We have returned to this restaurant multiple times and we... More

Had a birthday dinner compliments of Buona Vita. As usual, the steaks are great. The fish and chips were also very good. They never fail to satisfy. However, they have dropped the Sunday afternoon prime rib dinners rather than raise the price. We were going for the prime rib at least every other week and miss it greatly - best... More

We eat here several times per year. We have never had a bad meal. Our last visit was on Mother's day with the family. The place is always busy, which I take to be a sign of a good restaurant. I always enjoy the prime rib special on Sundays. They rotate menu items, so there is always something new to... More

We dined here on a Sunday night. The restaurant was pretty busy--probably 3/4 full. The sign outside says "Buona Vita Bar & Grille" but it's really a full service restaurant. It's nice inside, and the service was pretty good. They brought us breadsticks (fair) with oil and butter right a way, but they must have been short of waitresses because... More

You can order it on sundays for 13.99. However it is a little thinner than usual portions. Besides this deal the place is slightly on the high side for the quality offered. What is really good is the breadsticks and parmesan cheese they serve in the beginnig. The service is friendly. My husband really liked his lasagna although it is... More
