Italian Dinner in Paso Robles at Buona Tavola

As we headed home from a day of drinking, er we mean tasting in the Templeton Gap area we decided to stop for dinner. The first real restaurant we came to on the left as we came into Paso Robles was  Buona Tavola and we thought, why not! Great choice, and although we were early (15min before they opened) we were welcomed in and seated. As we perused the wine list we engaged the staff in a wine discussion and took their suggestion and had a nice Super Tuscan to go with dinner (excellent suggestion). While discussing the day of great wine finds an appetizer plate was ordered. A collection of three different types of Alle Pia Salumi and prosciutto with cheeses and dips oh my, it was fantastic, as were the artisan breads and the delicious olivata spread (way to easy to make a meal of).

Two orders of the prosciutto wrapped Fillet Mignon special, a salmon special and pumpkin tortellini were consumed. The food tasted excellent, was well presented and delivered in a timely manner. A Crema Di Vaniglia Della Buona Tavola desert with extra spoons, a Cappuccino and some Limoncello finished off a great meal.

Opening in 1992, Buona Tavola (meaning "good table") was serving fine Northern Italian food in San Luis Obispo and ten years later Antonio Varia opened the Paso Robles Restaurant. They also do cuisine for off site events, such as weddings, wine dinners and private parties.
We will be back to eat here again that’s for sure!

We  give Buona Tavola a hearty Recommend as one of the best restaurants in Paso Robles.

So head on in and order up some great tucker an tell em the blokes from downunder at WineWalkabout sent you!

Happy Dinning Adventures,

Kiwi & Koala
