Welcome

A neighborhood Italian ristorante just steps from Chicago's historic Logan Boulevard, Buona Terra strives to serve the freshest dishes in a relaxed setting. Opened in 2002, Buona Terra has become “the Neighborhood place”. You may see a family with children early on and later a party having drinks and fun at the bar.

A true family-owned and operated restaurant, you might call Buona Terra's goal "simple excellence" – a fundamental commitment to consistency, quality and value...

Welcome

Our Wines

We are very proud of our wine list. We offer many different styles of wine and a substantial by the glass list. As we select our wines to be added to the list we look for flavor and how well they pair with our food. We also look for wines that may not be large production wineries but offer incredible wines that we know you will enjoy. Over the years we have made lifelong connections with family growers and winemakers. Our wine list reads like a list of our friends. We hope that you will come by and have a glass of your favorite wine from the list or try something new.
