Couldn’t understand the server. Table bread was good and the Pinot noir was good. The Arancini were cheese balls, my husband grilled red fish was too fishy to eat and the pasta with my chicken parmigiana was so spicy it was not edible. Not a fan

We loved the food! We were looking for a “date night” location and it was a little brighter (light wise versus quaint) and had more kids (usually brings more noise) than we expected. We were seated outside the main dining room though. We plan to ask for a table in the main room next time that included a fireplace and more date-like lighting. Plan to go back and recommend them as well!

The place is beautiful, the he food was amazing, and the service was great! It was a little noisy because we were in the same room as a large party but it wasn’t too bad.

Found Bonta del Forno quite by accident - went once and went back bringing other family members - all of us enjoyed a great meal and will return - hopefully bring even more of our family. Great Italian food

We went with best friends to celebrate the end of 2020 and new beginnings for 2021. Every bite was scrumptious! We will be returning soon.

It was ok. Food was good. Not amazing. Very pricey for what you got. Our table area felt a little cold and was missing something- no ambiance or whatever. Wait staff was nice. Overall, probably won’t go back because we didn’t find it to be worth the money paid.

Our server was outstanding, the mixologist phenomenal, the appetizer was outstanding. The main course was less than to be desired. The meat in the lasagna tasted spoiled and when the GM showed up at the table, he wanted to argue about the taste and smell of the food, I know what spoiled meat smells like. My husband took a couple of bites and ask me to taste it because it had a strange taste. I could not even swallow the small bite I took. Too bad. I really wanted to love this place but the smug GM was so unapologetic and uncaring. Doubt we will be back.

Food was okay. Several service issues from start to finish. Was served a turned glass of wine, an entire course we ordered was skipped, and when the bill arrived it wasn’t accurate.

Absolutely wonderful. From the moment we walked to the front door to the time we left, we had a positive experience. There’s a sitting area in front of the restaurant with a nice fire pit area. The waitstaff is friendly without hovering over the table. The menu selection was just right. The food was very good. I give it 5 stars. We’ll definitely return for another memorable evening.

The food and service was great but our reserved table was at the front room extension which is brighter with views of Hooters and Bass Pro, which was not the best ambiance for a date night where we are spending $150. When I asked about being seated in that area, I was told inside was usually for bigger tables, but once we walked out we notices several two tops and couples sitting at four tops. That kind of sucked.

We will be back though but will be clear that we want to sit inside the restaurant.

First of all, the service from our waitress was impeccable. She anticipated our every need. We sampled the eggplant appetizer and everyone agreed is was well prepared and tasty. The three pasta dishes ordered were all well-seasoned, large, delicious servings. Although, the Margarita Pizza missed its mark with no visible tomato slices, but with an abundance of cheese. Our diner rated it as a fairly good cheese pizza.
Complimentary bread is served topped with lots of Parmesan cheese on top and with a little oil. Our table of four agreed that less cheese and an addition of oil with herbs would have been preferred. No sides are served with the entrees. A small side salad would have been a plus. We all would have also liked a little more sauce with our appetizer and pasta dishes. Save room for dessert! They're awesomely delicious.
Overall, it was a wonderful dinner with fabulous service. We will definitely return to Bonta del Forno Ristorante.

I ordered a salad with balsamic vinegarette dressing, but I tasted nothing balsamic in the dressing. It was only oil and it was awful. Also, still no Tanquerray gin. I will not be back.

This was our first time here and definitely not our last. We had the stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer and they were delicious. I would even thing about getting them for my meal next time. My husband I both enjoyed our meals. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. The food came out quickly and was hot and fresh. I loved how the place was decorated as well. We will be back!

Our server was Anna and she was one of the best servers I have had. The veal was delicious and probably the best I have had as well! My husband had the mushroom risotto and it was a bit runny but that was the one and only hiccup in the entire evening! The coconut mojito was delicious as well!

I had lasagna. It was very good! I will get it again. I thought it was a little expensive because everything was al a carte. Should have included a salad with the lasagna.
The server and service was wonderful.
I can’t wait to go back and try other dishes.
You can’t go wrong eating here! Best Italian food in Denham Springs and surrounding areas.
