Started off with a delicious caprese salad, very tasty with Jersey tomatoes and fresh mozzarella cheese. My wife really enjoyed her Buena Vita chicken, and I had a fantastic veal Buena Vita with prosciutto, peppers. melted Italian cheese. All of the main entrees are made with fresh ingredients. Our server, ALBA was outstanding. She explain the specials and answered all of our questions of items on the menu. She frequently checked on us to make sure our dinner was perfect. The tiramisu dessert and cappuccino coffee topped off an enjoyable dinner at reasonable prices. I highly recommend Buena Vita restaurant. Don't forget to bring your favorite wine.

It's a hidden gem in Somer's Point and I hate to let the secret out but it's worth sharing. The food was absolutely amazing! Each course was tasty and delightful beyond our expectations! The Branzino and Veal dishes were the best we've had. If you're looking for great Italian food and drinking your own wine, this place is a must. Can't wait to go back again and again!!!

Take my advice, if the branzino is available, try it. It is fantastic!

The artwork is lovely and the seating is fine, especially on a weeknight. Order the grilled calamari-it's wonderful and there are six large pieces to an order. It's a good value. So are the pasta dishes that are actually larger portions than they look. Parking is fine on a spring weeknight. It is tight on a weekend, especially in the summer. You may have to walk a bit from street parking.

But it appeared only 1 waiter on our floor serving many tables, So we had to wait to put in our order. But the food came out in a reasonable period of time and the rest was fine.

The wedding soup was delicious… lobster ravioli and the veal chop were very good, generous portions. We sat upstairs which is where I will ask to be seated next time as well, much quieter than the first floor. Will return soon!

The prices were a bit high based on the portion sizes, but we definitely did not leave hungry at all. It was nice to be able to BYOB. We will definitely be back!

He was excellent he kept every table working and made certain that all the meals were delivered in a efficient and timely manner. He never gave the impression that he was pressured despite the fact that he had no assistant servers at all. If we had to rate Remi we give him an A+ with the highest possible thanks for making dinner a wonderful experience. However, management should provide more servers in order to make it easier on their staff. Nonetheless, it is impossible to override the service we received. We have been coming to this restaurant since it opened and tonight‘s experience was top-of-the-line.
