When you are in the mood for a filling and delicious Italian feast set your course for Buona Vita Pizzeria in Crescent Springs.  They have a great selection of homemade Italian dishes, something to please everyone’s appetite in your family.

Buona Vita Pizzeria has been family owned for years, operating for a long time in Dayton, Kentucky.  Now Buona Vita is located in Crescent Springs and they have a roomy dining room that almost feels like it could be your family dining room with friendly staff and family photos adorning the walls.  The food is all made from scratch with recipes handed down throughout the years from one generation to the next.  Their menu offers pizza, calzones, panini, salads, and more.  Buona Vita also offers a full bar with wine, liquor and beer.  I am always impressed that they offer up a nice local craft beer selection.

As evidenced by the photos below, our family dines at Buona Vita Pizzeria pretty often and we always love our meals!

Buona Vita Pizzeria in Crescent Springs:

Here is a sampling of things we have dined on over the years at Buona Vita Pizzeria….

Spaghetti & Meatballs:  I think my own spaghetti and meatballs recipe is the bomb, but if I am going to eat this dish at a restaurant then Buona Vita Pizzeria is my close second for favorite!

Formaggio Cotto:  This appetizer is AMAZING.  A hot cheese dip paired with toasted homemade bread and truffle honey.  It is heavenly!

Frank G’s Tartufouva “The Grape Truffle”:  So if you could not tell by now, I do love truffle dishes.  It took a few visits to Buona Vita before I got brave enough to order this, but now it is my favorite pizza at BVP! Who would have known that truffle honey, grapes, prosciutto and feta would meld so well together on a pizza pie?!?

Mamma’s Meatball Sub:  This is one of Michael’s go to dinners at Buona Vita.  I tasted it once and can attest that it is very tasty!

Calzones: The kids love building their own calzones – choose your favorite ingredients and they will create something yummy for you!  And they are GINORMOUS!

Appetizers:  Go ahead and order an appetizer or two to share….everything they offer is delicious!

Dessert:  Do not leave Buona Vita without a taste of one of their sweet treats, like the Cannoli  (sooooo good!).

Alfredo Pasta:  Ella is always a fan of Alfredo Pasta, but I am pretty picky about it.  I will say that I give the Alfredo at Buona Vita two resounding thumbs up!

Soup:  Not in the mood for pizza or pasta?  Opt for the soup of the day or a salad!
