A light and delightful dish. I enjoyed the Prime Rib dish from Sam Buca's Restaurant on New Year's Day. It was perfectly cooked and served with grilled asparagus and double-baked potato, and served in jus. Located in the southwest suburb of Palos Heights, Sam Buca's boast three distinct areas for enjoyment: the Restaurant, the Bar, and their Rooftop. A warm, inviting staff, along with a talented kitchen make this a top spot of Italian food in Chicago's Southwest suburbs.
