Buon Appetito prides itself on showcasing beautiful art while serving their customers delicious Italian-style cuisine. Inspired by local restaurants in Encinitas and Hillcrest, Buon Appetito seeks to create a San Francisco style dining experience to the heart of San Diego. Located in Little Italy, Buon Appetito is a well rounded experience. Try the Burrata (a layer of fresh mozzarella served over a slightly warmed on a bed of sautéed spinach with seasoned oven-roasted tomatoes) if you are looking for something lighter. Some menu specials even change daily, depending on local selection and market prices. However, if you are feeling adventurous try the Coniglio alla Mamma Pina (rabbit braised in white wine with green olives, carrots, celery and onions served on a bed of fettuccine), a real authentic Italian meal. Wash it down with a glass of your favorite red or white wine from their impressive wine list. This original Italian restaurant also exhibits local San Diego art on their wall on a rotating, bi-monthly schedule. This is done to offer customers a change of scenery and, of course, to promote the thriving local art community. Check out their website for more information on these exhibits and peek at the list of upcoming artists and receptions; even make a quick reservation to ensure a table waiting specially for your arrival. Entering Buon Appetito and dining on one of their extravagant Italian entrees you will be reminded exactly why people have been coming together for centuries in celebration over food, wine and art; this is true Italia.
