We had our daughter sweet sixteen this past Saturday, what a awesome time we had. One of the highlights was the food. Everything from the penne, to the lemon chicken, to the sausage and peppers n ...even the salad was great. They brought the food on time n it was still hot. They provided me with racks n the sternos. The service they provided me with, was unbelievable. When I'm ready to give another party they will be my choice for catering.. Thank you for making my food n providing great service. See More

My family and I went to celebrate my mom's birthday dinner and was very glad we chose to come to Buon Appetito. The hostess and waitress and the other staff was great amazing. They were very nice and ...attentive to us. The food was Great...from the appetizer to the entree and then dessert. I would definitely recommend this restaurant as it was recommended to me. I definitely will be going back to try other dishes on their menu. See More

I thought yesterday the buffet contained too many starches, there was the lasagna, vodka pasta, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes. It was a bit excessive. And also they had tortellini. How about more v...eggies next time and for a appetizer some shrimp cocktails or some tortellini broth. The turkey was good. See More

I want to thank you for the lunch you catered for us on such short notice when our family suffered a tragedy. One quick call was all it took and thanks to Tony and the Buon Apitito staff we were taken care of.

Friendly and attentive service. Great location, atmosphere and food but no pizza. I would recommend a tapas menu for those looking to just drink and nibble on something.

This place is a family-orientated place. As a customer they treat you like family. I go here at least 3 times a month and I hold events here also. I know the whole staff I'm always greeted with a hug ...and a kiss and they truly care about there customers. Your food is so delicious always fresh and they have no problem altering their menu for the customers. They have the best thing in town and they're my number one restaurant. Come and check out this restaurant it will also be your favorite from Gigi See More

The food is excellent!! Tony, the owner, is always around and extremely friendly. He adds a very "family feel" to the restaurant. I live in Hoboken and will drive to Bayonne for dinner. Highly recommend!!

What an amazing meal tonight at Buon Appetito. Daughter and I both had the Shrimp and Scallop scampi, which I have to say, was the best I have ever had. Hubby had the Veal Marsala which he inhaled. He... told the owner that their Marsala was better than the one he makes. Topped it off with ricotta cheesecake, chocolate lava cake and tartufo. We are stuffed beyond belief. Thank you so much Anthony Stoebling for a great meal and a terrific staff. See More

I finally made it to Buon Appetito after living here a year. I loved it and truly am not sure where to start. Carla, our waitress, was phenomenal. Personable, attentive and treats you as if you hav...e known each other for years. Carla knew my name even before I sat down. Josh was assisting with the outdoor area and in Carla’s absence, made sure we had everything we needed. Danny, the manager was exceptional. I loved seeing him check on his customers throughout the evening to assure all tables were well taken care of. Anthony, the owner was there as well. You can see that he truly cares about his restaurant and customers. Anthony has instilled in his team what he truly believes in and leads by example. Their team is very friendly, knowledgeable and customer service driven.

The menu has a great selection of fish and pasta dishes along with nightly specials. We had a table of 4 so sampled several dishes and we had leftovers except the Garlic Shrimp and dessert… enough said.
The Garlic Shrimp appetizer was flavorful, generously portioned, and nicely presented with tons of sliced garlic, very fresh. The Lasagna had a light marinara sauce that I loved which could easily feed two people. The Italian Sausage with Rabe with sausage made in house…seasoned perfectly and a lighter texture than most Italian sausages. I have to say the same for the meatballs. I’m not a huge meatball fan as most are very dense. These were large and very light in their wonderful marinara. The tomato/ mozzarella plate was delicious…mozzarella was very fresh, out of Buon Appetito’s deli. The Chicken Michael Angelo (topped with prosciutto, jumbo shrimp, fresh mozzarella in a light sherry cream sauce) had a fantastic flavor with huge shrimp and pieces of prosciutto. The Red Sangria was awesome but the dinner became more fabulous when we were offered dessert. The Chocolate Lava Cake was shared by our table and was a perfect end to the evening.

Atmosphere, you can’t go wrong! Buon Appetito has it all… outdoor dining, cozy bar or a comfortable inside. We sat outside and barely knew we were on a busy street.

You know when you go to a restaurant and everyone appreciates your business? That's how I felt. Fantastic job!

There may not be enough space here to write for the great things I have to say. I don't know whether to start with the help how they all make you feel like family. Tony the owner who will do anything ...to accommodate you. Their amazing food,amazing. It is a rare occasion I do not go he with leftovers. One of the best sangrias I have ever had. I have had many events catered and everyone praises the food. To top it off in the warmer weather you can dine outdoors. A must . See More
