We ate at the Crescent Springs location. This is the third time and we were totally disappointed again . The pizza is simply not that good and not sure why we got it! We tried the Lasagna again , and this time just not that good ,no real taste, light sauce , way too much meat . Very nice atmosphere... More

My husband is obsessed with the pizza. I love the lasagna. The soccotini and fettucini alfredo are our favs too. T=

A friend suggested this place. When they told me where it was located I questioned whether they knew what they were talking about. Dayton? Are you sure you have the address right? And it's a cool place? Well....I was the one who was wrong wrong wrong. Buona Vita is located in an old bank and they have incorporated the old... More

Service was very good! Food was average at best! The bread is billed as being very special; it was not fresh and nothing to write home about. The spaghetti and meatballs was good, but again nothing special. It was served at about 200 degrees and took forever to cool down. Not sure if the food was MW zapped or what;... More

The restaurant is a handicap nightmare to enter if you don't sit outside. My husband had lasagna and it was watery and wasn't hot. The sauce had no flavor. My spaghetti and meatballs wasn't hot either. It was tasteless. I did have a very good glass of wine. Service was slow and the waiter did not know what the specials.... More

First off food was decent! I was at this store for a Christmas Party, therefore I wasn't purchasing food.... My story is I purchased 1 beer at 4.00 with a 1.00 tip at a total of 5.00. To my surprise, while on my bank account the following morning I actually was charged 1,005.00 YES 1,0005.00...... Needless to say I immediately... More

I've had pizza all over the world including several places in Italy and I'd put Buona Vita's pizza against any of them. The crust was fantastic, just the right thickness and perfectly crisp. The sauce contained chunks of fresh tomatoes. It had just the right amount of cheese and it was topped with fresh basil leaves. Sheer perfection. My wife... More

Not your average pizza place. This is brick oven, neapolitan style pizza with a twist. Try the special, there is a reason it's special! The last one I tried was cantaloupe and proscuitto. Sounded like a weird combo, but it was so delicious we came back for it again later in the week. Service is friendly, and there's a cool... More

This place has a nice outdoor setting (and plenty of room inside too) with a bar area and various size tables that can accommodate different party sizes. Various Italian items on the menu and all would probably be excellent choices as they are based off home-made recipes. I would recommend the Assorted Breads appetizer which comes from a local bakery.... More
