Went with large group, small parking lot only and on corner of one way streets, be prepared to leave earlier than you should especially in rush hour. Menu was extensive with another page of specials. Calamari was soft with bland batter and dipping sauce. The salads looked fresh and smelled good. Seafood linguini, steaks, risotto, salmon were ordered. I had... More

I went to Buon Apetito for the first time for dinner - I was not disappointed! I had the chicken and shell pasta - it was good! This place seems very popular too - which tells me that the restaurant is really good. Can't wait to try more!

We ordered the veal marsala, ravioli, penne pasta with Mascarpone cheese and a chicken Caesar salad. We had soft drinks and glasses of wine. Overall delicious and a good... More

I stayed in the Bay Area for a year for a study exchange program and Buon Appetito was our all time favorite restaurant in Hayward! Classy, copious and delicious! We particularly enjoyed the service, with the red pesto and bred as a complimentary appetizer and the kindness of everyone! No gluten free options but plenty of vegetarian ones which is... More

Although Acqua Farina has for some time been my go place for Italian food in Hayward, I decided to get dinner for take-out at Buon Appetito one evening recently. The service was especially good. I was allowed to make a couple of substitutions without any additional charges, and the young lady who assisted me when I arrived to pick up... More

I've been eating here often, maybe twice a month, since the place opened. It is always wonderful. Your best bet is to order off of the one page daily specials menu. There is always something good and interesting on it! The servers are very friendly- and they remember what I drink! The atmosphere is nice. For dinner, it is hard... More

This is a fun spot in downtown Hayward, obviously very popular with locals for good reason. The menu is extensive and you can also bring your own wine.

The food and the service was excellent! Our waiter was very attentive. We started with Carpaccio with Salmon and Calamari and then Caesar Salad, a Bacon Salad, a Beet Salad and a Carrot Soup. Two at our table had Veal Scallopini, and one had a Linguini with Fish, Clams, Mussels, Shrimp in a Lobster sauce and I had the Lamb... More
