Buona's Hot Giardiniera

(Customer Reviews)

Buona Italian Beef ships its famous hot giardiniera nationwide on Goldbelly! Italian Beef Sandwiches are as synonymous with Chicago as any food can be and for as long as they’ve been a part of the Windy City, the Buona family’s been a part of making them. Now you can buy Buona’s famous hot giardiniera on its own to spice up any sandwich, pizza, soup, or pasta that your heart desires!

The first Buona Italian Beef restaurant opened in 1981, but the Buona family has been a part of Chicago’s iconic Italian Beef sandwich business since the early 1900’s. Established by Joe Buonavolanto, Buona is the last family-owned Italian beef restaurant in the Windy City. The family’s original Italian beef recipe has not changed for three generations. Buona beef is the Official Italian Beef of the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox, and Buona’s Italian beef sandwiches are sold at Chicago Bears games.

10 out of 10!!!! Had a party and served this on French rolls with Provolone. Everyone loved it!
Amanda C. - Peyton, CO
It was more than perfect, I followed the step by step instructions and it was great. I have been wanting to have one of those sandwiches since I first saw them on a travel TV show years ago. I think Goldbelly has done a superb job bringing all this together. I was a little surprised at the coleslaw as I am used to the mayonnaise based kind, this reminded me a bit of sauerkraut. But it is all good! 
Bonnie D. - Red Bluff, CA
The meat was beautifully seasoned and the giardiniera was insane! I wish the meat came in two small containers instead of one large one - that way I can freeze one and use the other right away.
Denise K. - Sanford, NC
The extraordinary taste of the put-together Italian beef sandwich. Every component was out-of-this-world delicious!
Malia E. - Kailua, HI
The Buona Beef was the same as being in a Buona Beef restaurant and eating it there. I wish we had a choice between Hot and Mild Giardiniera though. The Hot is way too hot for my taste.
Karen S. - Mount Pleasant, TX
We love the beef and gravy. My husband is from Chicago so it was a birthday treat for his birthday. We live in Santa Fe now.
Alison B. - Santa Fe, NM
We moved from the Chicagoland area 21 years ago. No one in our area of Arkansas even knows what Italian beef or a combo is. So we order a couple times a year when the wave hits us. Buona Beef is wonderful. We will order again soon! 
Cecilia B. - Russellville, AR
Italian Beef - A taste of home! Great giardiniera too!
Paul S. - Taylorsville, UT
It is the tastiest Italian beef sandwich in the country. The perfectly seasoned beef with the scrumptious gravy and the spicy giardiniera and mini baguettes were out-of-this-world delicious! Don't go through life without having at least one of these magnificent sandwiches!
Susan J. - San Diego, CA
This BIB was AMAZING! Follow the instructions. Maybe extra French Rolls will be needed. A true taste of Chi-Town!

Buona beef is a taste of Chicago winner. I order often from them on Goldbelly without pause. The kit keeps everything fresh for when you make the Italian Beefs, and the Giardiniera is my all-time favorite and I order it as a stand-alone as well. They have perfected packaging so that there is not all the Styrofoam and excess packing materials to deal with. Well made, easy to prepare fresh and an overall winner. One of my repeatable Goldbelly food vendor go to!
