Yes, "c'est très bon" is perfectly OK but it  is a more general statement. "Il est très bon" refers to a specific subject.

Have you read this lesson yet? C'est vs il/elle est: Saying it is

Hi Jane,

Could you give some context to your query as  'il est très bon' is often used incorrectly for 'c'est très bon'?

Could you also say "C'est tres bon?" Instead of "Il est tres bon?"
