New Development in Oakley

Buon Appetito Restaurant

For those looking for fine Italian dining, Buon Appetito Restaurant is up and running in Oakley.  The restaurant has been open since August and is located at 3070 Main Street, across from the Oakley Civic Center Plaza. There are currently two Buon Appetito Italian restaurants, one in Hayward and the other in Benicia.  The owner and operator is Martin Oviedo.  Mr. Oviedo, who has extensive restaurant experience, states “I’ve been looking for a couple years for a location in this area,” Oviedo said. “We want to bring that quality of food here so people don’t need to drive out to Walnut Creek or San Francisco.”

Buon Appetito is open for lunch and dinner for dine-in as well as take-out. In addition, they have an upstairs space that is available for events.  Mr. Oviedo goes on to say,   “I think we have what people want,” “We make everything from scratch – homemade pasta, homemade bread and homemade desserts.”

Nature Properties
A new mixed-use development is coming to Oakley at the eastern entrance to the downtown.  Nature Properties has entered into a Development Agreement to construct a two-story, mixed use project in downtown Oakley along the north side of Main Street, between 2nd and 5th Street.  The development will contain first floor retail and second floor office space, and be developed in two phases.  Overall, the development will include a total of 40,000 square feet, a 54-space parking lot and landscaping.  Construction on the project is anticipated to start by early 2018.  Look here for updates on the progress and timing of the project.
