Since Chuck Rolecek closed his celebrated C.R. Sparks restaurant in Bedford, NH in 2010, the ensuing gap has never been filled. In Hampton, Bonta regulars feared the very same fate when Bonta was sold. Little did they know that the Montrones had deliberately patterned Bonta...More

I have always thought the dining room at Bonta was one of the loveliest anywhere. It is elegant and intimate, with its use of wood, paints walls and the charming fireplace in the middle of the room. We have had mixed feelings about the food,...More
