Food is amazing. Great family place, kids are welcome. A little loud, but that is just a sign of lots of people getting together to enjoy themselves. Service is also top notch.

In Enfield this is the place for Chicken Parmesan. Whenever we go either my wife or I get it. It is easily enough for 2 which is what we did for take out. The only down side is they tend to not put enough sauce on pasta but we just ask for extra. If getting takeout also ask for the... More

The chicken wings were crispy nice and the side hot sauce & blue cheese were just right for dipping. The staff is super friendly. The Clams Casino pizza was very good and loaded with bacon. Warm rolls with dipping EVOO was a nice bonus. The very fresh side salad with the house balsamic was perfect. The Broad Brook drafts are... More

Tried this place after buying Groupon. Upon driving up to this place I wasn't expecting much. Looked like any other generic pizza Italian restaurant We Ordered chicken parmigiana and chef salad. Food came with excellent garlic knots and Parmesan cheese flakes. Service was very quick and friendly. Food was delicious. Great deal especially when you use Groupon.

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
