Long-time Gongti staple (and as of April 2016, Dongsi-based) Pizza Buona serves doughy, thick-crusted, American-style pizza, laden with oregano-scented tomato sauce and piles of gooey cheese. The taste is redolent of college all-nighters (complete with nightly RMB 5 beers specials). Delivery service available.

User reviews of Pizza Buona 百好乐
Went here on a Thursday afternoon and found the service to be very friendly and attentive. I ordered a Funghi pizza with salami and thought it was quite tasty. The crust was a little dry, but with a little pizza sauce on the side it tastes pretty good. Suggest anyone in the area giving this place a try. They also have an extensive menu of foods other than pizza if you are looking to try something else.
Don't expect a gourmet pizza but Pizza Buona is perfectly cromulent for delivery. I've been ordering from them for a few years now. They've never messed up my order and I've never gotten a pizza that was damaged on delivery. The pizza arrives prompt and hot. The pies aren't memorable, but they are probably a notch above the US versions of Pizza Hut, Domino's and Pappa John's. Their staff keeps a record of your number and address, which saves a lot of confusion if you have trouble hitting your tones. Pizza Buona is perfect for a weekday when you don't want to cook in or fight traffic to eat out.
You can definitely find better pies at other restaurants, but Pizza Buona is tops for consistency and convenience.
Pizza Buona is easily my favorite pizza place in the city. It is mostly delivery, but they have places to sit inside. The pizzas are HUGE, but not as doughy as Kro's Nest. You will certainly have leftovers for the next day and they taste great cold. Even though it is my favorite pizza place in town, it is certainly not the best in town. What Pizza Buona has to its advantage is tasty pizza, great value, and efficient delivery (they keep your number and address on file after the initial call).
The pizza has lots of cheese and is oily as hell, but it is well worth it. True comfort food. It reminds me of bowling ally pizza back in the States. If you live in the Gongti/Sanlitun area, definitely give them a try. I guarantee you will go back because when it comes to delivery pizza, Buona can't be beat.
