  • The outside patio feels less like it is outside than you'd think. Romantic little spot. Food is really impressively executed.
  • Not too crazy about the appetizers but entrees are delicious!
  • I just watched them serve a party of 48 people with ease and grace! What a wonderful place.
  • Remember to order dessert! WOW!
  • Awesome food. Especially the Bolognese. And beautiful garden/patio seating ffor a nice day.
  • The seafood pasta special is fantastic!
  • Try the Bruschetta al pomodoro fresco e basilico and add the goat cheese.
  • The food here is great Tuscan fare. Good wine list. I come from Australia to SLO and wouldnt bother if Buona Tavola was not here.
  • Very delicious pasta! Really like in Italy. And interior is the same like in Rome, we were there in one of the best restaurants with big lines. Very simple and real interior)
  • Seafood is superb.
