Business Description
Over 90 years ago, the Monda family owned and operated an Italian bakery at 559 Hartford Avenue, in Providence, R.I. The family worked hard to producing many golden brown crusty loaves of bread, and became known as "The King of Bread". In 1987, the Monda's retired. Two years later, Arnold Buono, brother Frank, and father-in-law Dan Amadio entered the business. With help from the Monda's, and using the Old World methods and recipes, combined with modern day accuracy and high quality ingredients the Buono's began to establish a name for themselves. On October 2, 1997 The Bakery received a declaration from the Rhode Island House of Representatives, naming Buono's Italian Bakery, " Rhode Island's Best Bread"; if you haven't tried Buono's yet, get here soon! You will not be disappointed. You will also enjoy a full line of Calzones, Pizza, Biscuits, Rolls, Cakes, Eclairs, Muffins, and Italian Pastries.

have to try this place

I love good italian bread. I really love great italian bread.
I hope this bread is as good as they say it is. If it is I will become a regular customer. Not just for the bread but for the rest of the goods they bake.
I will send a real review once I have tried the bread.
Most bread is just bread. I want the best and will travel to get it. The five stars will stay up until I try the bread. If it is great they will stay. If not they will go down accordingly. Barry Newman

The bread is sublime

Buono's makes the best bread I've ever eaten. The sturdy crust crunches deliciously and the crumb is light and airy but substantial. I am trying these days to make my own bread, and they establish the standard I hold myself to. Mine is not bad, Theirs is the best.

My parents live in Johnston in the home my father had built for his family in 1953. The best thing I can say about their address is that it's about a mile west of Buono's.
