We took a group of 11 to Buena Vita for this year's Savor the Summit. We heard some stories from other friends who went to different restaurants of getting paper cups, and less than great service and food. We thought Buena Vita did a great job. The food was quite good, and the wine pairings were very nice as well. Dessert was excellent, and the staff did an excellent job of serving a large group. We really enjoyed it.

This place has been a Park City favorite of our for years. Very good Italian food at prices that don't break the bank. The beef short ribs are excellent but unfortunately they only had one portion left (they seem to run out of this dish often) so my wife got it. I had the shrimp and was not disappointed. The fried calamari appetizer was good - crispy and light, not rubbery.

Have eaten here since for many years. Food is always good - fresh, seasoned well, perfect portions. There are good options for vegetarians, seafood lovers, kids and classic Italian foodies. The place is smallish - can be loud, but good for most any occasion. Make a reservation. Service is prompt and staff is friendly.

We had the absolutely worst experience here. We are two families of 4 traveling and dining together. The food and service we received was the worst we've had in memory, in fact it became the joke of our vacation. Service was so slow - 6pm reservation and we didn't leave until 8:45pm. It was brutal. Cocktails we ordered were completely flat and watered down. We sent them back and it took 30 minutes to get a replacement!

One member of our group is gluten free. He ordered a gluten free pasta on the menu. He said it was tasty but half way through the meal, he nearly broke a tooth on what we believe looked like a piece of glass. We promptly asked for a manager but only our server came by to profusely apologize. So perhaps no manager is even on duty? He offered to take that meal off the bill and provide us with comped desserts. The creme brûlées we had were basically vanilla pudding with burnt sugar on top. Not impressed.

Then the bill arrives and not only did we have an entree on the bill that we didn't even order or receive, but the desserts that the server promised to comp were on there. Honestly, the guy should've comped most of the bill for the problems we experienced.

The real kicker was that our gluten free friend was up all night with stomach pains. So whatever they claimed was gluten free was indeed not at all.

I'm shocked at the good reviews here. I would not recommend this restaurant at all. We will not be back.

What a gem of a restaurant! The food was excellent and our family was very pleased with the quality of the food and the price was also reasonable.
