Pizza is the BEST....sadly dinners...the worst

I give the pizza 5 stars…however the dinners are poor (and hence this review)….I would avoid the dinner menu here as it is very weak….The veal parmesan tasted like old fried “pork” with overcooked pasta which was about 85% of the dish….and a chicken marsala made with paper thin slices of chicken, a poor excuse for Marsala sauce (watery with no taste of Marsala wine whatsoever…and again 85% overcooked pasta)….Honestly we both took two bites and trashed both dishes and chalked it up as a place not to order an Italian dinner….However on many previous occasions we enjoyed their pizza and thought to give their dinners a try. Buona is however one of the BEST PIZZA places in the Westfield area…..therefore…..they have my pizza biz….for Italian dinners I will stay at home or go elsewhere in Westfield which is 90% Italian restaurants anyway. Also weird…..I’ve lost count of how many Italian places there are already.

Quality on a Budget

Buona Pizza looks like a typical pizza joint upon entering the restaurant. There is the pizza counter on your left with pizza deliverers standing in the narrow aisle awaiting their pies for delivery. But if you continue walking straight back you will find a small, tastefully decorated dining room with about a dozen tables maybe able to sit 30 people or so. And if you have gotten that far you are in for some very tasty, if totally conventional, Southern Italian food. June, the owner’s wife, is frequently the waitress and she is friendly and talkative. The antipasto is a good starter no matter what you order, but realize it is a large plate with prosciutto, two kinds of salami, ‘regular’ ham, fresh mozzarella, sliced provolone, olives, peppers, lettuce, and a good dressing. It can serve four easily. The combo egg plant and chicken parmagiana is excellent and a great idea. The pizzas are quite good (try the salad pizza; it is an incongruity worth seeing). So are the various sandwiches, calzones, and the like. It is a great place to bring your own inexpensive wines, knowing that your bill will be quite reasonable AND you will take home tomorrow’s supper. What’s not to like?!

Rigatoni Pomadoro

Actually labeled as Rigatoni Filleto de Pomadore, this is rigatoni with your classic Amatriciana sauce with onions, prosciutto, and all kinds of flavor. I have a hard time not ordering it. It is how I judge pasta in a restaurant (because I make it myself) and this version is as good as it gets.
