    We all enjoyed our meals. Peter was our server and was very accommodating. The special butter for the bread was delicious. We had mushroom ravioli’s and the Penne pasta with chicken and mushrooms in a tomato cream sauce. Preferred the cheese ravioli with the mushrooms in the tomato cream sauce over the one that is fried.

    Seated promptly but waited 30 min for waiter- he was very courteous but had two 10 person tables to manage by himself- clearly understaffed. They could've used waiters from other sections of restaurant but seemed to be locked in to designated zones. Entrees came out quickly though and were very good- huge portions- we should have considered sharing. Note- while the entrees were delicious, the calamari appetizer was not good, chewy, not flavorful. Looked like something purchased at Sam's club and warmed up. They missed on that one. Overall it was ok- I gave it 3 stars.

    Celia was our waitress and she was terrific. She recommended delicious plates and was playful with our daughters which they loved.. The food was delicious and the lava cake didn’t stand a chance with our family. If you want great service and delicious food you need to eat here.

    Food was decent, but not outstanding. Entrees came out in different batches (not sure why). Best thing was dessert, which was excellent. Tons of staff milling about, but hard to get someone.

    The food was fabulous. Service was great. It was expensive, but everything in Park City dining is over-priced. There were three of us and we each got different pasta dishes. Everyone loved their choice. Our waiter was Ever and he took great care of us. All in all, it was a wonderful evening.

    Service was poor and other tables were experiencing the same. Whatever you do, don’t get the gnocchi- it’s tough and definitely not homemade. Was so disappointed with entire experience. The fact that they charge for extra bread is ridiculous.

    I must say I was pleasantly surprised by how good the food was after reading some earlier reviews that made me question my decision to dine at the restaurant. I enjoyed the experience and am actually going back there for dinner tonight, which will make it 2 dinners in a row there. There were 2 meals I was interested in, so I am going back to try the one I didn't have. I ate there with my wife and another couple and we all talked about how good the food was. The drinks and appetizers came out 1st and then dinner came out with a slight delay but I do understand the current issues with staffing in restaurants, so I expect that to happen periodically. The waitress was very friendly and good. The portions were enormous and very tasty. I highly recommend this restaurant. As a side note, I usually don't write reviews but I felt there were some unjust reviews on this establishment so I thought it appropriate to comment.

    Horrible service! It took 30 minutes and multiple reminders for my husband to get his drink. My husband dish came out first. 2 minutes later, my son’s dish came out. 5 minutes later my daughter’s and my dish came out. I had ordered the mushroom gnocchi, but received pesto gnocchi instead. I sent the dish back and asked for what I ordered. The manager came over to our table and told me that the pesto gnocchi was her favorite dish and that I should have at least tried it before sending it back. I told her I didn’t order it, I ordered the mushroom dish. She then proceeded to take a phone call and started complaining to whoever was on the phone. She walked back and forth in front of customers while having a loud conversation. The only dish that was any good ended up being the mushroom gnocchi. The Alfredo was bland and the chicken was over cooked. Ultimately, when we paid, the server shorted my husband change. We waited 10 minutes to try to rectify the money issue but our server was no where to be seen. In short, the dinner was a nightmare.

    We made an 8:45 dinner reservation for a party of 7. The food was good as always but we were rushed through our meal. At one point the entrees were being brought out at the same time as salads. We felt rushed and an inconvenience to the staff. If you don't want to serve that late don't take a reservation that late. We always do dinner there at least once when we're in town and we will try it one more time. This is the first time we've had anything less than a perfect experience.

    The waiter was very inattentive. I had to ask for Bread at the beginning of the meal. After the meal was served generally Parmesan cheese is offered and I had to ask for that. When the meal was finished I had to ask for the dessert menu and he acknowledged me and then proceeded to take orders from a table of 10. I then asked the maître d’ for a dessert menu and she brought it to me. Overall it was a disappointing experience.I’ve eaten there before and had a good meal before.

    There are no deals in Park City, but adjusting for the over-priced and under-delivered restaurant scene in Park City Buona Vita is a gem. (1) we were actually able to get a reservation during spring break ski season (2) food was good (3) service excellent (4) prices OK for a sit-down dinner in PC. I would go here again and would recommend this for families.

    Unfortunately this restaurant is just “mailing it in”. There is so much demand for dining in Park City they don’t make an effort to be service oriented. Attention to detail is out the window. I had to get up and go grab the wine menu and only after that did our server decide he should come back to our table. The restaurant is tired and needs refreshing as well. Food is fine but nothing to get excited about.

    The food just was not good. The pasta bolognese tasted very watery. The pizza was terrible. The gnocci pesto tasted good but was drowning in sauce. Luckily I got salmon sauce on the side so that was fine.

    Disappointing, real bad attitude of the manager and server, order a Hefeweizen bier, they brought whatever bier they had other than and flat, but no Hefeweizen, and the server looks me in the eyes and says “that’s the Hefeweizen we have”! Bread totally undercooked with doughy middle. Then the manager comes and says that’s the bread we have. Asked for some crackers, got none. Poor service with a bad attitude.

    Buona Vita was an amazing place to eat in Park City and a great date night option! The staff was attentive and very kind. The pizza was outstanding. The Spaghetti Vongole was also amazing. The clam to spaghetti ratio was very generous. Definitely would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting or who lives in Park City!
