Came to the area for the wine festival and found this place for dinner. We walked in and were a little scared as the decor was very old and needed a facelift. Made us afraid for the food. Well, we were pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Service was good too! So, bottom line, don't let the appearance fool... More

This is a small family owned restaurant that has wonderful food. Our large party indulged in everything from pizza, pasta, salads and the daily special- eggplant parmigiana. It was all excellent and generous portions. The eggplant still had a crispy crust with a melt in your mouth interior. My elderly mother and aunt were able to get small portions of... More

Loved it! Just looking for an easy place for lunch and saw the sign outside for what they served. What a jewel. Parking easy in and out, very tastefully decorated. Hardwood floors, electric fireplace and full of fall decorations. Cloth tablecloths. Nice menu, from appetizers, sandwiches, pizza, full meals and a great deal for the money, wonderful dessert menu and... More

We saw the reviews for Bova's on Trip Advisor and were looking for something local and decided to give it a try. We found the restaurant just as the map showed it, parking on the side of the building. Don't get confused as you walk to the front of the restaurant the door on the right is the entrance or...

Went there for lunch. Had a Fantastic BLT Croissant sandwich and Raspberry ice tea. The bacon was cooked just right. No room for pie but will go back and try it

Good hearty food in a bar/restaurant filled with sort of Italian kitch. We stopped in our travels and found this to be a great place for a hearty lunch. Although they have a bar and offer a salad and pizza buffet at lunch (looked good), we got just sandwiches and coffee. But, these were great -- first-rate ingredients and service... More

Sitting on the corner closer to the outskirts of town, I really wasn't sure 💁 to expect. I was so surprised.. Nice dining experience. Wait staff was very nice and quick to attend to us. The food was excellent. I definitely would go here again.

Bova's is our "go to" choice for a guaranteed delicious meal in THE friendliest atmosphere. The Victorian Mediterranean dining room is the perfect setting for a family meal or an intimate date night. Offerings include pasta, steak, poultry, seafood and of course, Don's Famous Friday Fish Fry. All is homemade and fresh, including fabulous cannons, pies and your NOT typical... More

I visit for lunch and for dinner, they have a great pizza/soup/salad bar during lunch and a great selection for dinner. My favorites are the vegetable calzone and the cheese ravioli. They have a great little bar and amazing desserts too!
