Buona Vita specializes in authentic fare from northern and southern Italy. Northern dishes include pasta with Alfredo sauce, pesto specialties and fresh Bolognese. From the south comes pizza, chicken Milanese, Margherita pizza and pasta marinara. Grilled panini sandwiches are popular at lunchtime, and the chicken cacciatore is great any time. But for a real treat, check out the smoked-salmon ravioli or the decadent sapore fiero: ravioli filled with crab in creamy saffron sauce. The restaurant also offers a good selection of Italian wines and grappa. Top it all off with a cannoli or tiramisu.
