My wife and I moved to the five forks area a year ago and immediately fell in love with Bova! We eat here at least once a month and love the pizza. My wife has a gluten allergy and likes the gluten free pizza here over all the others she's had. Never had the pastas but can't say enough about... More

Recommended by someone who lives closer to Anderson than Greenville who is a CIA graduate, it is somewhat of a local restaurant and bar. We were impressed with the pasta dishes: too much really too eat at one seating, so make a doggie bag, but what the heck...in my next visit I planned on not eating breakfast the next day.... More

First time trying. Stopped in on a Saturday evening. We were seated right away. First impression was that it was very bright. Not colors but lights. Sitting in a booth on a Saturday night need much dimmer lighting in my opinion. Waiter was great. Gave us some recommendations and stayed on top of needs. Food came out very quick. We... More

My first visit to Bova was excellent. We had a variety of dishes including a kids pizza. Very impressed with the brick oven thin crust style pizza. Large menu, kid friendly. We will be back.

The usual tried and true restaurants in our area were closed this evening due to the snow fall and predicted icy roads except for Bova. So this was a take out order placed just in time being they were also going to close up on the early side. My husband ordered the Spicy Salsicca pizza which looked really good! He... More

Normally a fan but spaghetti and meat balls tonight were very poor. Manager didn't seem to care. Guess I won't be back for a while

We are here for the first time for lunch with our 3 year old. We were the only table and server was pleasant and knowledgeable. My pasta (a delicious copy of my Olive Garden favorite) was delicious and a good portion. My husband's pizza was great he said, thinner crust but plenty of cheese. We will return.

Our family eats here probably once a month. They have great pizza and salads. Good beer and wine selection as well. Moderately priced - not cheap but fair for the amount and quality of food. Take out is as good as eating in the restaurant so that is an option we do as well. One of the better options in... More

Met a friend while running errands and decided that Bova was the perfect location for lunch. I had the antipasto appetizer and it was the perfect size for a lunch. My friend asked if it was possible to get a smaller portion of one of their salads. The waitress originally said no and suggested some of the salads that come... More
