Welcome to Buona Terra

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.

Decorated in muted greens and warm tones Buona Terra at once feels welcoming and warm.

Listen for the laughs, smell the delicious scents of great food, and come and join us for a dining experience that you will not soon forget.

A Presto!
