Who are you to post something like this on a public place? He has 5 children. How would you like to be one of those kids seeing that on the internet? Especially something that isn't true.

Bobby has done so much for this neighborhood. He puts nothing above his family and would never put them, or anyone else's, in danger or harm's way. Are you really going to believe a gangbanger ratting people out? Prayers with your family Bob, and thanks for all you've done for us.

You have no right to be posting things about someone's family like that on a public forum, true or not. Think of the kids that this guy has, three of them under the age of ten. Two of them teenagers, which is probably even worse that they have to read this kind of crap over the internet. Be a little bit more mindful and respectful.
Why would we worry what to say that his kids might read it? He should have thought about that before trying to burn down the building.

Not to mention, in 2004 the family purchased another home in Florida? FISHY!!???

Charges dropped? No!

It is wrong that this buy tries to burn a building down and then blame the guy who he hired?

The gangbanger, as he is often referred, wouldn't do that unless he was paid.

Funny, this family has a couple of home, several cars, lives quite the lifestyle, now it may be coming to a screeching halt, and all the family members are upset about comments made.

Sure, he is a nice guy, to his friends and family, but bottom line, sounds like a bum!

Woodridge closed, probably because he is in foreclosure on his house and business.

Sorry Mr. Didiana, but you should have thought of your family before trying this. Bet you have a lot of regret now!

The Bacci in Downers Grove closed due to poor business, I'm guessing. Since the new owners took over a few years ago, it's never been the same.

On the Bacci website, it says that there is a new Bacci opening on Dearborn St. downtown. Probably another reason why the DG one closed- to focus on the new one. Dearborn/Van Buren is a great spot... lots of schools, and corporate buildings in that area right in the central loop.

Hey ABC123... if you're gonna try and post information acting like you know this man and his family, don't be a little coward and actually PUT YOUR NAME. Hiding behind the internet when you're talking crap is easy, isn't it? Coward. Own up to your statements. They are false and along the lines of libel or slander. Where is your proof of a second home purchased? Where is your proof that he was not born in Italy? Where is your proof of any sort of foreclosure? Any of that information anyways, if it were true, is personal, and has no bearing on this article. It does not need to be posted on the internet for the world to read. It is simply not relevant, and no one else's business.

Stop hiding behind the internet and posting ridiculous comments that you cannot back up.

apparently, I hit a nerve with you "MIKE",
and apparently I do know this family.
Also, this was the SECOND home they purchase in florida.

So, Bobby should have worried about what his family would find out about, before he tried to have someone try to burn down the building.

Weird that someone feels the need to come creep and talk crap on a discussion board regarding an article written over a year ago... Get a life, buddy.
