The food is delicious and there are many choices besides pizza. They also have desserts available. Great for eat in or take out!

Buona Pizza is a Mom and Pop type restaurant and the pizza was excellent. Definitely not your average beach fare. Pizza crust was delicious. Would definitely go back and try other items on the menu/

We've been here before and didn't realize there was a nice patio in the back looking out to the water. Very pleasant. food is always great - we shared house salad and spaghetti and meat balls - more than enough with leftovers for tomorrow.

We have eaten here a number of times in the past and ordered take out on this occasion. We ordered the margherita pizza, which featured a nice light crust. My only negative here is that the customer service is not always very friendly.More

This is really good Italian food. The Eggplant Parmesan is wonderful. The herbs they put in the dipping oil for the bread is super tasty.

I don't think so. But I may be wrong -- calling them directly sounds like a good idea.

Description
A cozy, family owned and operated, Italian restaurant located on beautiful St. Pete Beach, FL. The homemade from scratch Italian favorites are the main reason people become our customers for life. We strive to exceed customers' expectations by offering the best service possible and great value. One of our two outdoor patios, a hidden gem that faces a small marina on the intracoastal Boca Ciega Bay, is another asset of "Buona Italian Restaurant" for those who want to sit across from the water and enjoy some great food and a bottle of wine. The new owners Diane and Marco, as well as the lifelong and very well known on the island Chef German, are always involved in the daily operations and they are never too far to listen to your wants, your needs or your suggestions. Please stop by and ask for any of us, and introduce yourself. We'd love to meet you. The Buona Restaurant Family
