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.”
