Diner Reviews
  • "This Italian gem is Bayonne is Amazing. The food is great and the service is exceptional. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The owner / manager pitches in when the staff is very busy and makes you feel welcome. I have dined her several times and will return. I've used Groupon Vouchers and Discount Vouchers and you are never made to feel that you are not a valued customer. This is a family and friendly oriented restaurant. Highly recommend it."

  • "Service was attentive and pleasant. It took 60 minutes for our entrees to arrive on a slow Tuesday evening, and they were out of multiple things. Penne alla vodka was very good as was linguine with white clam sauce. Generous portions and excellent warm bread. "

  • "I was not overly impressed with the service or the food. Their were kids running around the restaurant bumping into other patrons and nothing was done. My family and I were very disappointed with the way the waiters seemed to be rushing us out of the restaurant. I would definitely not go back here again. "

  • "I have to say prior to this dinner, my only experience w/Buon Appetito was through the deli section next door. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised at how our meal was extremely delicious and more than satisfying portions. I purchased a voucher for 2 appetizers, 2 entrees and 2 glasses wine/beer. Have to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our whole meal and took most of it home...even the appetizers...this is a place where if your NOT a big eater, than you sh/share dishes. Not to leave out the excellent service we received and would recommend Buon Appetito restauant to everyone...it's a delicious surprise."

  • "I love Buon Appetito. I have been coming here for years! Also, love the fact that they have a deli. Everytime I go there, I always get their Vodka sauce to go. It was my son's birthday and I love the fact that the restaurant could provide a birthday cake to complete my son's birthday party."

  • "We've been to this restaurant about four times. This time was not a good experience. My husband and I both started the meal with soup. He had cheese tortellini in broth and I had chicken soup. Both soups were delicious. We thought we were off to a good start. Unfortunately the chicken parmesan was unseasoned and a bit tasteless. The lasagna wasn't much better. The sauce was a bit bitter and was also unseasoned. The server was nice but inattentive and slow. No one asked if we were enjoying our food. The host should have more control over the dining room. He seems disinterested. One thing though, the restaurant was crowded due to a group of about 25 people. Maybe the kitchen was overwhelmed. No dessert or coffee, we just wanted to leave."
    Dined on 8/25/2012
  • "Although most of our food was good, the diner who ordered the chicken sorrentino was disappointed with it, stating it was greasy and not good at all. She left most uneaten."
    Dined on 8/25/2012
  • "I am familiar with the restaurant and must say this meal was disappointing and the service could have been better. There were too many different people serving us. If you made a request of one he might have to ask the other. Everyone seem to do only their job, not the other staff members job. I found it strange"
