Amazing service and incredible food!
Fun night - place was packed and tables quite close. Server very friendly.
Great food and menu and wine list. Server new menu well big was a bit intense / harried. Quite loud. Buy really good food !
Vincenzo was our server and he was terrific - super attentive and friendly. Food was outstanding as usual - loved the eggplant appetizer! The place is cozy so it does get loud in there, but our group loved it.
Visitors from out of town!
With all the Italian restaurants in this area you must stand out and unfortunately except for the great service the food and facility were just ok, not great. Stefan our waiter was super and jumped through hoops to get us a great wine but in the end a restaurant is about the food and this just does not stand out.
We went to rhe restaurant for lunch and we had a wonderful experience. The food was great, starting with warm, fresher baked bread. We shared an excellent arugula and beet salad. My gnocchi was exceptional. We highly recommend this restaurant.
I must eat dinning experience. My waiter was luigi incarnte he was fastico!
The food as always was authentic and plentiful. Our waiter was courteous and attentive, but the staff was rushed to remove our plates when one of our guests had not even been near finished with his Osso Buco.
It was a very pleasant experience with amazing food and great atmosphere. The service was amazing considering they were very busy! Would love to dine here again!
If it was possible to give 10 stars Buon Appetito would get them. Excellent food and friendly service. Overall an outstanding dining experience.
Awesome , authentic!
Always exquisite food. Can get a bit noisy when full to capacity, but the food is worth it!! Service is always great too. Our favorite in Little Italy!
Great in all aspect, will return
Maximo a real pro waiter
Loved it, such an Italian vibe! Waiter was so awesome!
Everything our family of four ordered was delicious. We really enjoyed our meal.
The best service ive probably ever had at a medium priced restaurant.
Awesome menu, with choices for everyone. Our veggie friend worked with our server to create a fabulous meal. My goat cheese ravioli was as good as I had in Italy, as was my husband’s wild boar ragu. The restaurant is a bit crowded and noisy, but the tables are arranged to keep you from backing into your neighbors when getting up. The diners at the table next to us were speaking Italian-always a good sign! We’ll definitely return!
Food was very bland.
Absolutely delicious meals enjoyed by 4 of us this week. The server was knowledgeable, made a great wine recommendation and provided outstanding service. The biggest negative for us was the noise level - it was almost intolerable. Packed restaurant with lots of conversation combined with very LOUD music (an unnecessary?) made it impossible for us to enjoy conversation with our delicious meals.
Si te gusta el SABOR ORIGINAL DE ITALIA ... este restaurante es el indicado en DOWNTOWN SAN DIEGO, si ir tan lejos ....
Our food was the best yet in Little Italy! Starters were eggplant and the burrata roasted tomato salad. Excellent! The veal osso bucci and ravioli were TDF! Desserts were just as fantastic having the ricotta chocolate cake, creme brulee and ice cream. The wait staff was on top of their game and extremely proficient! Thank you all for a delightful experience!
I had the salmon ravioli and it was so good!
Outstanding service. Very personable and prompt with food/drinks.
Great food! Had the lobster with mussels, clams and pasta, outstanding. Also dessert was fabulous. Very italian atmosphere
The food was phenomenal. We went for lunch and the prices were really reasonable. We got two bottles of moscato priced at $28 each, well worth it. Service was great, very friendly and prompt with food. Would love to go back the next time I’m in San Diego!
Best Burrata in San Diego.
Fantastic service. Our reserved table was ready when we arrived and the food, as always, was great!
Exceptional Italian food that meet our expectations. It was a bit pricey overall, especially since we added a good bottle of Italian wine, but we thought it was well worth the cost. Food was served hot and the service was attentive. The atmosphere was nice but became quite noisy as the night progressed and the restaurant became busier. Best lasagna we have had in a long time, utilizing plentiful chicken instead of ground beef or sausage was a nice touch.
Great experience and great food! Will visit again when in town!
It was our first time at Buon Appetito but it certainly won’t be our last.
The food was fresh and absolutely delicious. From the pesto pasta to salmon ravioli, each of our orders came out promptly and cooked to perfection.
The staff were extremely friendly, efficient, and considerate. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived but we never felt rushed. Even after we paid and were just sitting there talking they continued to fill up our water so we could stay as long as we liked.
Great food, great atmosphere. Authentic Italian food and delicious wine. Would highly recommend
If you like real Italian food this is the place. Outstanding, savory tastes. Great service and very friendly staff all around
The homemade cheese and spinach ravioli was outstanding as was the taramisu.
I gave this restaurant 4 stars overall bc everything was great except our waiter was a little unfriendly. He was very short with us and didn’t smile once the whole time we were there. Other than than everything was good!
Good food, terrific atmosphere and great service
Highly recommended it was a great experience and the food was outstanding
Lovely place to spend valentines, food and service was wonderful, highly recommend.
Noise level is the only downside to this great dining experience. Hard of hearing friends would miss out on so much, I would choose different location for them.😔
