The lunch buffet is totally worth it for $10. Quality of the food is great, staff is friendly, it's hard to find any faults here. We'll be visiting again and again.Nice people here. Family owned. The eggplant salad is amazing. It's like a summer version of eggplant Parmesan. A tower of eggplant, fresh mozzarella, arugula and tomato. More...

Great pizza, I was a little annoyed the last time I went there at 11:10 when they close at midnight and asked to order a pizza and they said all their employees had left and they couldn't make any pizza anymore. I get it, it was late, but then why is the place open until midnight? Other than that experience I do like their pizza and normally have good experiences here! More...

Lunch buffet was very good. 5 pizza options, 2 pasta choices, small salad bar and a few desserts. The star of the show for me was the stuffed pizza, offered in cheese or pepperoni. I really liked their red pasta sauce ( I usually don't). Their pizza sauce is a little on the sweet side. Their crust is really good. It falls on the soft side, yet sturdy. It reminds me of a dense, Italian bread. The pizza toppings are balanced well with good quality. The food is substantially better when it's hot and fresh and they did a good job of maintaining the buffet. The hostess was nice. The dining room was large and we'll kept. It seems the owners really take pride in their business and if I lived closer I would put it in the rotation. Naperville is lucky to have an option like this. More...

I love Braconi's! It is has been my go to spot for years and their only downfall is not having more locations!! My family has used them for everything from in house events, catering offsite to a Friday night in with some yummy Italian comfort food. The pizzas are always made with the freshest ingredients and perfect cheese/toppings to sauce ratios. I am a sucker for a solid pepperoni pizza but my friends swear by the Hawaiian. A few of my other favorites are the Mama Braconi's pasta, potato skins (these are made so fresh that sometimes the bacon comes in whole slices or bits so you know the chefs are making them from scratch!).  The staff is helpful and welcoming, they love to get to know their costumers - on many occasions a simple hello has turned into full on conversations. They are also very involved in the community by supporting the weekly Car shows, high school sports and much more! You have to stop by!! More...

Amazing! The price is not very overpriced compared to other restaurants, the staff is very friendly and quick. Food is delicious and its not like that kind you would find at a grocery store. They even have there own sauce recipe and dough recipe, which makes you not taste something you would find everyday! Very calm and quiet and perfect for a family! You people really know how to own a good and fresh restaurant, that's why I am giving it 5 stars! More...

Their stuffed pizza is delish. Try the 1/2 lb hamburgers on site, not for delivery. (Over cooked) Gracious management. Staff needs a bit of training... ie: hours of buffet. I recommend this place and hope that they listen and read orders for delivery a tad bit better. Can’t wait till my next pizza from them! More...

Our go-to pizza place! Usually we get carryout or delivery from Braconi's, a mix of both thin and deep dish pizzas. I think their deep dish pizza is among the best in the Chicagoland area! The amount of all the parts of the pizza is perfectly matched to get the signature Chicago taste. It's actually one of the only places I've seen that offers broccoli as a topping! (My signature pizza is a deep dish with Canadian bacon, broccoli, jalapeños, and pineapple!)The thin pizza has a generous helping of cheese and is crisp enough to hold any amount of toppings that you get. They also have several different salads (if vegetables are your thing) that pair nicely with a pizza.I've heard good things about their buffet, but have never tried it. I also like the fact that the business is locally owned and operated, with a good connection to the surrounding community and Naperville North High School. More...

I have lived in the area for over 10 years and just started coming here. The atmosphere is casual but nice. The place is kid friendly and they have a variety of things on the kids menu.  The pizza here is amazing. The last time I was here we ordered a thin crust pizza that was topped with fresh basil. The crust on their pizza is light and crispy.  As great as the pizza is my favorite thing is the hamburger. It's probably one of the best hamburgers I've ever had. It's got a juicy char to it that you can't find anywhere. The presentation is lacking but the flavor makes you forget that quickly. More...

This is my first review of Braconi's, although I am there almost every week with a dance crew from across the street and every time I am there, it seems ok. Well today was not 5 star.. I came in with 3 little girls, they all ordered off the kids menu. I ordered a half & half pizza, I waited 25 minutes for it and when it came it was wrong and so she had them re-make it which took ANOTHER 25 minutes. They didn't take anything off my bill for this. A friend of mine joined us late and she was getting buttered noodles to go. The waitress adds her noodles to my bill so we had to have a really awkward conversation about giving me my $5 back. Then I leave and take the girls back to dance and she waits 15 minutes for a kids buttered noodles. Terrible I am updating my review because I came in tonight to meet a friend and we didn't order anything except water and a coffee, it was kind of a meeting and the waitress was beyond nice and came over to ask if I needed more coffee three times even though I didn't order food. We are at the dance company across the street so 100% you will see me again. BTW... on point with their fried ravioli. YUM!Thanks! More...

Braconi’s has the BEST stuffed pizza in the Chicago area! And as one might expect, there is a little bit of competition. The stuffed pizza features a buttery crust, very nice sauce, and lots of cheese. Aside from pizza, Braconi’s menu features a diverse array of Italian cuisine. The Mama Braconi’s Past Special and numerous other pasta dishes from veal to chicken are outstanding. More...

We had my daughter's Baptism lunch here with a group of about 30 people in their private party room.  The management and staff here were very easy to work with, and they kept the lunch buffet open later to accommodate our group so everyone could eat from the buffet of pizza, salad, and chicken.The food was great, our server was friendly and efficient, and the price was reasonable.  I'd highly recommend Braconi's for a special event!Also, their wheat-crust pizza is excellent for carry out (or dine in).

We come here when we feel like having a salad and a whole wheat crust pizza. There are so many pizza options in town that we go to different ones depending on what type of pizza we're craving. I like that whole wheat crust a lot - it's a little crispy, a little sweet, and it has a touch of rosemary in it too. The sauce is balanced and there's the right amount of cheese and toppings. The service is spotty, always has been, but they are unfailingly friendly if not always Johnny on the Spot. It's not beautiful in this place, but homey. There's a small bar area, a private room for groups, and a patio to boot. It's a good value too. More...

Five stars for great food.  Caveat: Yes, for some reason, the service is occasionally a bit lackluster.   Not sure why.  Just ate here for the lunch buffet.  EVERYTHING on the buffet was very, very good.   Numerous kinds of pizza.  Both thin crust and stuffed/deep dish.  The salads were amazing.   Desserts, excellent.   Today, they had chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy.  Excellent.But yeah, waited for at least ten minutes to put in my drink order.   The waitress who took the order was not even my waiter.  $8 for a glass for sparkling wine.   Guess that is standard nowadays.    Guess I am glad that the buffet was self-service.Anyways, great food on the buffet even if the service was inexplicably weak and slow.   It wasn't super busy, so they can't blame it on that. But the food is not to be missed.  You will leave very full and satisfied.   The buffet is only $9 + tax & tip (optional, of course). More...

28 August 2016

Hands down the BEST pizza I've ever had. Granted, I am gluten free, so I can't speak to the regular crust. But as a GF person knows, it's hard to find a crust that doesn't taste like cardboard. This crust is a thin crust but thick in flavor. They also layer their toppings for maximum flavor. The only thing I would change about this place is the price, it's a little expensive for a GF pizza, so that only means I can't have it as often as I'd like. One last call out, I've only ever ordered to-go. But their staff is always really friendly! More...

I love their gluten-free pizza! I get it delivered regularly. It is thin and crispy, just the way I like it.

On a recent weekday, I dined at Braconi's and had a pleasant experience. Though it was late afternoon, I was surprised that I was the only diner. I was seated in a booth near a window with the shutters closed. It was a nice private spot.The pizza I ordered was a thin crust with black olive, pepperoni, and onion. Based on my pizza and the numerous other pizza pictures on Yelp, Braconi's does a great job with visual presentation. My pizza was very photogenic! They layered a generous amount of black olives all over the pizza. The balance of pepperoni, onion, cheese, and sauce was to my liking as well. The crust was crispy on the ends and the pizza itself held together well enough that you could eat the end pieces without utensils and not have a mess. I thoroughly enjoyed it and what made the experience even better was they offered a Yelp check-in deal! It was 15% off a purchase of $20 or more. I'd definitely return. More...

Best pizza in town. Had delivery and could only have one slice before it was destroyed. Lovely customer service as well. A must try.

Best pizza in north Naperville!  Thin crust is crispy, cheese is plentiful, and we love their sauce!  Always friendly service too

Nice little place close to home for me.  Great food and the owner seems like a really down to earth guy and cares.  The only reason I can't give 5 stars is it is steep in pricing on pizza.  Good pizza...just a little on the high $$$ side.  Keep up the good work! More...

I went for the lunch buffet on a Wednesday. It was $9. I was seated right away, and my drink order was taken within minutes. Quality and taste of food are really good. They had 6 different salads, 4 different pizzas(including deep-dish), 2 other pastas, and an assortment of desserts. For the price, It was worth it. The best part about my experience, was the customer service, It seemed like a family owned business. Everyone was very caring and friendly. Would definitely recommend it for lunch. More...

Never judge a book by it's cover, which from the outside looks like pizza to go.  Inside, Braconi's has an expansive seating area in the back.  The seating looks new and kinda no frills, but that's okay because the food has plenty of "frills".  We came for pizza, and ordered seven cheese lasagna and eggplant parm. My better half says it is the best cheese lasagna she has had.  The eggplant was a solid offering.  The red sauce was on the sweet side which I love. Service was superior.  First time here in the shopping center with Fresh Thyme.  Five star food and service deserves five stars.  Will we ever try the pizza?  Hmmm. More...

As I type this, I am waiting for your delivery man to knock on our door... Really enjoy the food at this restaurant, ingredients are fresh, service is always friendly and quick. My favorite pizza is a good old Shrimp and Mushroom pizza (try it!)... Braconi's is the only place in Naperville that I have found which puts on huge chunks of fresh shrimp and not a bunch of mini canned shrimp! I have only tried their thin crust pizza, I have not tried the stuffed. Pasta here was also very good, in fact everything we have tried has been great here. We found this place one night buying Christmas tree's at the lot next door and glad we came in for a nice warm meal! hurry up delivery man.... I am hungry! .... More...

Some of the best pizza you can get in the pizza capital of the world! My favorite is the stuffed Italian sausage pizza but the pan and thin crust are also top notch. The chicken parm and braconis salad are great choices as well. My two sons are addicted to the garlic bread. The weekday lunch buffet is a great deal but is not a reflection always of how good the pizza is as sometimes the food sits on the buffet too long. Well worth stopping in to grab some great pizza.

We love Braconis! The lunch buffet is one of our favorite spots. Anyone I bring is always skeptical but leaves wanting to know when we are returning. The lady who gives back rubs is a staple during lunch and always remembers who you are. We order delivery from there randomly and have only had a couple of issues. Mainly the issue has been with a female delivery driver. However the manager is fantastic and will always take care of you if there are any problems. He definitely takes a "will fix it so tell us please" attitude. We would highly recommend to everyone! We have also seen groups use the big room for parties. Looks like a great venue for a gathering!

My boyfriend and I stayed at a hotel close by and ordered from here. The food is absolutely exceptional! Fantastic! We ordered a medium pepperoni and sausage which was so so good. We could not stop enjoying the cheese and the sauce. We also ordered some chicken tenders and fries and they were way beyond our expectations.It's a little pricier than we thought but we definitely got our money's worth! Whenever we come back, we'll definitely try this place again! Highly recommend it to anybody who's nearby! More...

Really good pizza cooked just the way I like it. Gini the lady at the counter was really sweet to me and we chatted a bit while I waited for the pizza. I also had some tiramisu and took them both back to my hotel.  Pizza very very good.  Flavorful sauce. nicely seasoned, not too sweet.  Tasty toppings (and they were generous with them) that were also just how I like my Pepperoni and Italian Sausage to taste.  They were covered in a thick cheese blanket that was very good too.  Pizza was a 5 star pie, no doubt about it  The tiramisu was OK, not bad, but far from the best I've ever had, but it was fresh, so 3 stars for that.  Gini was so nice that she bumped them back up to a 5 star review again.  Definitely go.

Only been in the area for a little under 2 years but my first experience with Chicago Deep Dish Pizza was from Giordano's and it was just plain bad, Tried it again, and just as poor. Practically inedible. So I did not have high respect for the dish at all as I thought they were the best. Then I tried Lou Malnati's and I was very pleasantly surprised. The crust had flavor and texture, the sauce was solid and the cheese, what I would expect. But it still didn't leave me thinking that I had to have it again any time soon. I could take it or leave it. My Mom came out this week and never had Chicago Deep Dish so we figured we'd take her out to Malnati's in Naperville. Well at 6:30pm they already had an 1:15 hour wait. No thanks. Instead we found Braconi's, and what a find.Three adults, two toddlers and a baby and they got us a table right away. The staff was very helpful and attentive. We ordered right away, a large pepperoni stuffed pizza. The place was busy but not 100% filled. My only knock was initially, the wine took a while to be served and there were no napkins or silverware on the table. Also we asked for crayons for the kids, but that request was forgotten, Honestly, not a big deal. When the pizza came out, the staff helped organize the table and right away we dug into it. The toddlers loved it. My Mother, 79 years old, had 2 slices. My wife, who can't stand Chicago Deep Dish Pizza (due to our earlier experiences) loved it. The crust was awesome, none of that dried wallpaper paste with a cloying butter feel in your mouth that we experienced before. The sauce was incredible. The pepperoni stood out. In my opinion, the best Chicago Deep Dish Pizza I've tried. We will definitely be going back. The staff then helped us organize and clean up and the check was processed right away without wait. That's big when you have tired kids. Avoid the downtown Naperville crowds and traffic and long wait times at Malnati's and instead head to Braconi's. You'll get a much better pie in a much more relaxing atmosphere. More...

We order from Braconi's on a regular basis. Their prices are a little higher than other places in the area, but the quality is always much better than others. We like that the pizza tastes more homemade than other places, and the delivery is always faster than what they quote. More...

Came on a Saturday night-no lines, no wait ... were we the only ones here!? We got the pepperoni stuffed pizza, technically I saw pepperoni but we didn't taste it.

We have ordered a few times from here. Their portion sizes are nice, not too much, not to little, just right.The steak sandwich is awesome!The eggplant  parm has a lot of noodles and cheese on top.The Bruschetta Pasta is excellent.The fried ravioli is yummy and cheesy. The fries are like double fried or something because they are extra crispy, I like them.The Potato Skins are delish!The chocolate cake is mediocre. I order from GrubHub and their delivery is fast. I ordered at 5:30pm with an estimated delivery of 6:50pm, It was delivered hot at my doorstep at 6:05pm (on a Wednesday).We will continue to order from here. More...

This place seems rundown and outdated but the staff is friendly and the food is presented with pride. It's an out-of-the-way place at an out-of-the-way location for tourists like us; our dining counterparts seemed to be mostly aging locals. This is exactly what I look for when traveling. We were prompted to stop here by a Yelp discount deal. The stuffed pizza was as fantastic back home in Wisconsin as it was when served to us in Naperville the night before. The sauce boasts a deep tomato flavor and while a notch on the sweet side, contrasts well with the Italian sausage on the pizza. The crust is flaky yet substantial. We left full and satisfied, with a ton of leftovers. Good call, I'd say. More...

I've driven past this place for a while now and was always curious. I found really great reviews on here and a coupon code so decided to give it a shot.We ordered the fried ravioli as an appetizer. They were good but 8 half moon ravioli for $8 isn't really worth it. The marinara sauce was decent.For pizza, we ordered the signature with sausage and basil. We ordered it well done on a wheat crust. Pizza was very good but I'd like to try regular crust or even stuffed next time. UPDATE: I visited Braconis again, and I need to recommend the chopped salad. The amount of add-ins and dressing is perfect. We also tried the regular crust but ask for the pizza well done so it ended up tasting close to the wheat. The amount of toppings is perfect and it's priced great.Overall, I would come back for the pizza and use my coupon. Service is great too! More...

This is one of the best pizza places I've ever experienced. They have the best flaky, butter crust that just melts in your mouth. I've tried thin crust, deep dish and chicago style. All are amazing and will knock your socks off. Of course you will probably be in a food coma, but it's well worth it. They have a full menu but the pizza is where it's at. Their fried ravioli (cheese) appetizer is delicious, too. What tops it all off is that during the week they have a lunch buffet, and they also make killer margaritas. All around, probably my favorite pizza place to date. And I eat a lot of pizza! ;-) More...

Braconi's was another GrubHub find. Despite all my lousy experiences with GH, I decided I'll give Braconi's a try, as I wanted to try something new.I placed my order at 5:50 with a promised delivery time of 6:45 PM - 6:55 PM. Seeing as how it's a Friday night, it's cold, and the Blackhawks are on, I didn't anticipate my food being here in that time frame. I'm understanding when it comes to delivery, as long as it's not over 90 minutes when I live less than 2 miles away.I was craving a Margherita style pizza, so I decided to try a small Bruschetta pizza, which is has chopped fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, olive oil and fresh garlic. They make you choose an additional topping (for an extra charge, of course), so I went with extra basil. I figured this was the closest thing to a Margherita pizza. My doorbell rang at 6:40 (!!). After signing for my order, and wishing the driver a good night, I opened the box. I was very pleased to see TONS of basil on my pizza. I didn't even grab a plate, I picked up a piece right then and there to sample. Oh my. The pizza was GOOD. I mean, wow. The basil was fresh, the cheese was neither sparse nor was it copious. The tomatoes were subtle in flavor, letting the basil be the star of this show. There was a hint of fresh garlic, which was a nice surprise. I l-o-v-e garlic, but I was afraid it would overtake the other ingredients. This was not the case. I am so glad I gave Braconi's a chance. My order was perfect, delivery was quicker than expected, the quality of the ingredients exceeded my expectations, and the driver was the kindest soul ever. I can't wait to order from here again and try some of their other menu items. More...

Braconi's was my mom's favorite restaurant.  On one of our last visits together we got delivery from there & pigged out.  It was a good time!  When my mom passed away shortly after that in 2007, we had a dinner here after her funeral.  The staff were really great to me.  The banquet room was already occupied so they let our family have several tables in the dining room and I just had everybody order their own meals from the menu since money was tight.  The workers all remembered my mom & told me some good stories about when they had seen her come in.  One included how she was "dancing" in her wheelchair to the music & enjoyed a drink in the bar.I also spent some time in the bar during the dinner.  It seemed like the right thing to do to have some drinks in her honor.I received great service in both the restaurant & bar and was touched that everyone seemed to remember my mom who passed from this earth too soon.  While I was still in town after her funeral, a friend of mine & I got delivery from Braconi's one last time.  It was bittersweet since she wasn't there, but the food was very good & it was soothing to eat it one more time.  I would definitely recommend Braconi's to anyone planning a trip to Naperville.  And I would also suggest using their banquet services if you are local.  Top notch service.  Thank you, Braconi's.
