Buona Vita has awesome Italian food, great pizza, and a number of other more American dishes like subs and burgers. They have a dining area and a bar area with happy hour specials (bar only). Good beer selection with some locals. It may seem pricey...More

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

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...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...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...More
