Buona Vita is my favorite Italian restaurant in the south bay. The food is great and relatively inexpensive especially for the quality of food you are getting. They allow you to bring in bottles of wine with no corkage fee and the atmosphere is both fun and romantic.

The lobster ravioli is highly recommended, although I've never seen anyone disappointed with what they ordered.

What a shame, I had heard so much about this. Arrived about 615 pm and followed the instructions at the door on the sign, please write you name on the board for them to seat you. I waited about 5 - 10 minutes to be noticed by the staff

I really enjoy eating here, with the exception of the long wait. If you're not in a rush or really really hungry this place is great to go. It's constantly busy and great food aside, it's probably because there's no corkage fee, so bring

This is a great place for a quick easy and affordable dinner. The restaurant is slightly loud and the tables are spaced close together. You can get to lknow other people easily or keep to your selves if you'd like. The food is awesome I

The food is great, especially when the owner is in town! When he is not, it is still VERY GOOD! The Chicken Nastari is to die for and the Chocolate Mousse and Brazilian Flan are fantastic desserts. For me the Gnochi al pesto is a

I'm not sure what others are saying about the food...it's quite delicious. I recommend the polenta, bruschetta, and the pasta primavera. I have eaten there quite a bit over the years and always find it an entertaining place to take

Pros: inexpensive, fun atmosphere, no corking fee

Cons: , wait on weekends

Buona Vita's major draw seems to be the free corkage, and the lively atmosphere. Because of this most people get so drunk they don't notice that the food is terrible, and that most of the food comes out of a can or shrink wrap. (They

Pros: Free Corkage, Birthdays

Cons: , Service

I've been here many times. It's a great restaurant for groups if you are having a party since there is no corkage for wine. Aside from that, the food is not very good and the service can be bad (especially in a large group).

This place is really nice..small but romantic and very nice. People are friendly. Food is mouth wateringly delicious and to top it all off, the prices are very reasonable.

I would go there again and again if I didn't live so far from it.

By far my most favorite restaurant in Los Angeles. Great food, fabulous for birthdays, NO CORKAGE FEE, and v. v. romantic. I have brought friends here numerous times and no one has been disappointed. Loud, fun and crowded on weekends.

Very authentic italian food at great prices. The portions are huge too. Although the place can get a little loud on the weekends, it's a lot of fun and caters well to large groups. You can also bring your own wine and they don't charge
