Success! Thanks for posting your review of Buona Terra. You’ve done the world some good today.


I have never before been moved to write a review. This was my worst restaurant experience ever. They are snotty, impolite, crude people. Food was served with a thick black human hair in it. When mentioned to the management, she said,""it's not our fault"". Well, neither I nor my table guests have black hair. When we asked for the bill to be split between two couples, she said in a very snotty way, we don't do th... view more

Horrible service from upper management

Food good, waitstaff nice, upper management snotty and act like you are doing them a favor by eating at their restaurant. Can go elsewhere for a friendlier environment.

Wife of Owner is not one for customer service

The wife of the owner is rude and demanding. Should have known when making the reservation that this would be a bad experience. We went for a birthday dinner. She wanted the party of 8 -10 people to have decided what their menu choices were prior to coming to the restaurant. Who has ever heard of such a thing? When one goes to a dining facility and receives their menu and hears the specials is when one decides on the... view more

Good Restaurant Gone Bad

This was once an inviting neighborhood place with decent food and good service. After dining at Buona Terra for over five years, I find that the new staff is wholly indifferent to the needs or desires of diners. The wait staff carried forward from the glory days remains as great as ever, but they cannot make up for the disdain dished out by the newcomers. After several meals in a row tainted by snottiness, I see n... view more

Can't wait to go back

A nice casual restaurant in Logan Square, fresh calamari. The Linguini with Clams in White Sauce is delicous. I've had these dishes a couple of times and it's to die for. Also, don't forget to try the garlic & olive sauce/dipping provided with bread while waiting for dinner. You can also ask for some when you order out too. I can't wait to go back, in the summer you can sit outside.

User review by sherren

As a newbie to Logan Square, this was one of the first restaurants I found, and I'm glad I did! Great (everyone in a group of 6 was happy with their meal), service, price, ambience. I'm can't wait to go back.

The husband and wife team make you feel like family. The service is excellent. Our favorite waiter is Juan. He knows what you want and brings it promptly. We have also had some of the other wait staff and they all are very knowledgable about all the items on the menu. The quality of the food is excellent. There is always a fish entree on the specials of the night menu. We are southsiders and try to get there a... view more

User review by gmrm

I love going to Buona Terra with my girlfriend, especially on Thursdays for their $20.00 prefix. I can't believe what a value it is. I'm glad they're just a few blocks away from us.
