La Buona Vita
They have a great red sauce.
Always a go to place to celebrate family events.
Great food selections! Fabulous staff! I have had 2 showers using their private dining and I am about to have one more there. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
Great variety of quality Italian food.
The portions could be a little larger though.
Been here a few times but this last visit I was very disappointed. Food not good martini was off. Is this under new management?
Our first time here and we had a wonderful time. Service was great and the food and drinks were wonderful. Will be back
We ate outside. Beautiful night.
My first time here. The food and service were great! I'm definitely going back!
a great local spot, great food, nice Bier choices, everything we've tried here has been very good!
the hostess, Mimi, was spot on with recommendations!
Great service and nice space. My chicken Marsala had no taste. My dinner companion had Salmon and liked it.
Everything was awesome as usual.
Great food!!!! This is our second time back and the food was excellent.
Great food and service!
One of my favorites, never fails to deliver!! Always good service and delicious food!
Fantastic family luncheon. Good food. Great service?
Had the salmon with salsa and walleye pike picante style. Nicely done. Servers were attentive.
This was our first time eating at the restaurant. The food was very good. Friendly service. We will definitely be back .
Service wasn't really good, but the food was excellent!
The pasta dish I ordered was decent, however the Italian sausage was so over cooked and you could tell it had been sitting for hours, because it was hard and cold. They should have everything made to order and fresh. Obviously meatballs need to be pre-made if they truly are made from scratch, but I think they could up their game especially for what it costs there.
They were not busy. We only ordered pasta. It took an hour to get our food. By the time the food arrive we had to take it to go because we didn’t have enough time left to eat it. The experience was a waste of time and a waste of money. The food is fair at best. Slightly overpriced.
Our server Dominic was outstanding! He was polite efficient friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I’m sorry I didn’t get the bus boy s name but he too was polite and friendly
I had the snapper and it was done to perfection
I will be back and I will bring my friends
Great food that we could have paid nearly twice as much for at other Italian restaurants—their homemade pastas are delicious!
The food has been consistently delicious, ample portions and well delivered. We have gone several times
This is what they call a "perennial favorite". We had family in from out of town, so we wanted to treat them to something special. NObody was disappointed!
From start to finish, everything was great!
One of my favorite Italian spots in the 'burbs. Good Entree and Pasta Options. No frills. Not a big menu, but has something for everyone. I enjoyed my Chicken Parmigana. Girlfriend had a risotto special. Dessert was good, too. Had Tiramsu, Cannoli, and Spumoni Bomba. Small, but satisfying!
Great Italian Restaurant in LaGrange! Immediately, upon arriving, we were greeted by a friendly and welcoming hostess, Mimi, who showed us to a table that we liked. She explained a few things to us and made us feel very comfortable, even suggesting a few of her favorite dinner entrees before our server came to take our order. We took her recommendations and the dinner was delicious! We will definitely come back again very soon!
I would recommend La Buona Vita based upon the menu choices, service, tasty food (basic angel hair w Marinara, salad and meatballs as a side), wine selection (Malbec was very good). We sat outside, as it was a perfect summer night, so did not experience the inside ambiance. The waiter was very attentive and informative. The only reason to give 4 out of 5 stars was that the meatballs were very salty tasting. The Marinara sauce was very good however and the pasta cooked perfectly. Also celebrated a birthday and it was done very very nicely with candles in the dessert!!
Great food ...SERVICE .
NICE AND COZY
Overall it was fine. The only main disappointment was in dining room service. It took about 40 minutes for us to receive our main entrees after ordering. The server may have been new/inexperienced. We didn't see him very much and since the food was taking so long, it would have been nice to get a few check ins and assurances that our food would be out soon. Coffee was brought to us with no spoons/sweeteners. When we did request a spoon and sweetener for iced tea/coffee, it seemed he forgot a few times and would remember one thing, but not the other.
++My veal limone was excelent & well cooked. It was great to see all the people at the restaurant. & the waitors were fast andery curtius.Aso the mater D was a person I knew. It was great to se a old freind.
The food and service including the bus personnel were excellent as usual.
First visit. Very impressive decor and waiter, Chris very good and kept us informed and a good pace for a relaxing dinner.
Pleasantly suprised my first visit. Nice variety of dishes. Service was top notch. Will return
Most every time we’ve had a family meal, it was wonderful. The leadership simply didn’t support a younger new waiter and many things went wrong. Again, everyone deserves another chance and sometimes you make mistakes. I’ve written strong reviews for La Buona Vita in the past as well.
Newer waiter. Should have had someone working with him to answer questions we had All in all we were disappointed.
They have a nice bar. Decent food and I will come back. The pistachio gelato was lack luster in appearance and flavor which disappointed, but entree was good.
