We've eaten here quite a few times but not recently. Tonight was an incredible disappointment. We went after the movies for a late dinner. The place was pretty empty. Service was slow. The Lentil Soup and Garlic Knots were good. I had the lasagna...awful. My first bite I couldn't chew. The top noodles were so hard I couldn't bite through... More

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

Buona Vita's has great food and service which pleases all who visit. The restaurant also has a Happy Hour during the week and draws a large following for sporting events such as football and baseball games. There is a separate bar attached to the main dining room and very friendly, attentive staff.

The decor is dated but the food is great. I was impressed with the plating (presentation) of the food. Our server Toby was very friendly, and hard working. My only complaint was that the food was over-salted.

We had lunch at Buona Vita today and it was excellent! I had the veal marsala and the veal was done to perfection - tender and juicy. Others at my table really enjoyed a 7-cheese mac&cheese, a huge Chef's salad, and a "make your own pasta". As if that isn't enough, all meals except the chef salad came with either... More

I've never had food from here that I didn't love. Their burgers are great, their soup is great, even their bread is great. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a good, hearty meal.

This is one of the few places in ct with great gluten free options for Italian, including delicious gluten free pizza. Everything on the menu is fantastic, including the drinks. Great for both families and couples. Highly recommend!

We stopped in on a whim and had an enjoyable lunch. The place was not very busy. The waitress was very nice and attentive. Portions are large and we particularly enjoyed our wraps.

I stopped in after work by myself because my husband was traveling. The table was dirty when I sat down and the bartender wiped it with a bar napkin. Not very effective, so I decided to order a drink and get my order to go. My drink was good and I was happy with it. While waiting, 2 employees had... More
