I have been going to Buona Terra for years for the prix fixe night. The menu is great and you can make reservations. If you can dine outside you will enjoy the people watching. The sevice is also outstanding.
The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Service was quick. Food was great. Would definitely come here again. Delicious garlic dip with the bread.
This is a favorite restaurant of mine in logan square that we visit regularly. The food is delicious.
Four people for weeknight dinner. We ate outside. Very few patrons either inside or outside. Street noise can be difficult; ambulances and other emergency vehicles.
I suspect ownership has changed because I did not encounter a single person of Italian blood. That notwithstanding, food prepared and presented properly. Friendly staff.
Worth a try.
We had a great meal at the restaurant, and the wait staff was wonderful- attentive and personable. We sat outside so did t really experience the restaurant ambience. The outside decor could use a little improvement.
Tried the Thursday night specials, and it all went quite well. Will definitely be going back. Appreciated the owner stopping by the table to check on things.
Wonderful food, a logan square gem.
Good food and the entire team works to ensure that your experience is great. BEST prix fixe option in the city.
Buona Terra is a small, family owned restaurant located just south of Logan Boulevard. Do yourself a favor and dine there on a Thursday for the pre fixe dinner. You will be surprised at the fine selection of wine. First choose an appetizer, I recommend the carpaccio. It will be difficult to choose an entree from the menu, they are all delicious. Afterwards, you can select your dessert option, this too will be a tough choice. My suggestion is the chocolate pecan tart. All for the low price of $22.95.
This was our first time at Buona Terra but it will not be our last. We were three for dinner on a Sunday evening and each ordered from a different section of the menu. The food was excellent; interesting combination of flavors and was clearly fresh. Service was very good; attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommended.
Dined here for the first time on a Wednesday night. The room off the main entrance was quite full with two large parties, which made it almost impossible for a party of four to hold a conversation. The service was not great, again probably due to the large parties, but the restaurant should be able to plan for this type of staffing. The food was very mediocre, nothing to run back for.
Will not return to this spot.
I was really pleasantly surprised. The food was great, the waiter was attentive, and we were even able to sit right by the window in their bigger room. If you haven't been here, I would highly recommend that you check it out.
Buona Terra is one of our favorite neighborhood places. The regular menu items are always great and their specials never disappoint.
This restaurant is the best value for the money bar none in this city!
Neighborhood dining at its finest. The food is great and everyone is friendly and attentive. From imaginative daily specials to the regular (and hearty) pasta dishes, we have never had a bad meal. The wait staff and owners go out of their way to make you feel at home. Great place!!!!!!
Best Italian restaurant we have been to in a long time. You can tell the food was made fresh. The service was good. Tables were really close to each other, which made it hard for the waiter to come by often. We left knowing we would be back.
Good food overall. The Bruschetta was the only disappointment. Very friendly wait-staff. Great Prix Fix deal on Thursday nights!
My boyfriend and I were there for dinner last Friday and overall had a pretty good experience. The food and service were outstanding (particularly the woman who ran the front of the house- love her). We had the sautéed calamari as a starter, one of the veal dishes and the linguini frutti di mari special- all were outstanding. The bottle of Sangiovese was a perfect compliment and extremely reasonably priced. The only thing I could complain about was our table. We were trying to enjoy a romantic evening and got the smallest table I've ever seen that was awkwardly in the middle of the back dining room. We also happened to be surrounded by a bunch of large loud parties. We ended up laughing it off and aside from that, everything was fantastic!
Delicious food and a great prix fixe on Thursdays. Always a treat.
Great food which is reasonably priced. Friendly staff and nice, comfortable atmosphere.
