Stopped in for lunch. The food was good. Took a little longer than others we've been to. The place was dirty. Tables were not cleared and the floor needed sweeping. Only one person taking orders so we had to wait.

Have been there a number of times for lunch and dinner. Good value. My friend thinks the beef is too spicy but I don't find it spicy at all

I had Italian beef and the taste was good but the beef was oily. The vegan pizza and I like it. The dough was not dry or tough.

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.
