“get that beef fix in here”
Review of Buona

Buona
Ranked #3 of 42 Restaurants in Itasca
Description: Buona is a quick casual restaurant chain that features Original Italian Beef, Pizza, Burgers, Hot Dogs, Sandwiches and Salads. The first Buona restaurant was established in Berwyn, IL in 1981, by Buonavolanto Patriarch Joe Buonavolanto, Sr. He was among the group of Italian Americans who perfected Chicago's original Italian beef. The menu is a blend of old-school Chicago classics and next-generation menu choices - made from scratch with fresh ingredients. While the menu has expanded, the original beef recipe has not been compromised - for the three generations of Buonavolantos who are active in the company, compromise and quality are never uttered in the same breath.

In from out of town and needed that Italian beef fix. Always loved it here living in the town so had to come back. Still very consistent, same great beef and flavors and great fries. But did notice it has cut back on the amount of beef a bit. We ask for extra juice on the side. They have a great menu filled with very freshly prepared items a bit higher end and well worth it, especially their gourmet pizza's. there is something for everyone on the menu. Place your order they bring it to you on nice plates and prep. They always have specials and also special pricing on different days and different meals and combos. Good seating. Great friendly staff.

The wife and I were in the area and stopped here for lunch. We both had the Beef and Sausage combo and they were very good. Service was good, restaurant was very clean and we had a very good lunch. We have been here many times and have never had any issues. No complaints here for this visit!

The classic Chicago Italian beef. Good size, good price, good service. We used to go to the original location for years. They've grown. They deserve the success.

Food was excellent. Facility was pretty dirty. The tables were full of items from finished meals. The floors were pretty bad too. We ordered there twice and both times it was a mess but took our meals to go.
