My first visit to Buca, and I was impressed. The interior is very warm and inviting, with a variety of historical Italian photos all over the walls. I always have a concern when visiting a "chain" Italian restaurant that the recipes will not be authentic Italian (are you listening Olive Garden?). Not to worry here. My party had 3 different...

Four of us ate here. We had the bruschetta appetizer which came with lots of toasted bread and a lot of toppings. The main courses were all very good and left us feeling full. Our wait staff member was very attentive and pleasant. The only thing that could have been better was the macaroni dish was very al dente which... More

We had a reservation for a group of 28. 6 no-shows due to snow storm, so we had 22 show. Buca had a small room set up for us. Service was very attentive. Food was really good, but way too much. No complaint there as they were very good with to-go containers. They were great in keeping separate bills for... More

Visited mid afternoon Nov 12th with reservations for group of 18. One server was stressed out. Drinks, wine and food came out slow. Food had to be ordered often as servings were small. Quality of food was So-so. Same group goes to Lombard IL Buca di Beppo. Night and day. Will avoid the Wheeling location and go to Lombard in... More

Our family of six came here for Thanksgiving. I knew that it was served family style but didn't know that the portions would be so small. There were plenty of green beans but the dish of mashed potatoes was skimpy. Only white meat turkey and just enough for two pieces each. When the bread basket was empty they did not... More

This is a great place to go with the family or group of friends. Food is served family style and is just more conducive for talking. The portions are large and there is plenty to share. Such a huge variety of pasta to choose from ~ if you can't find it on the menu (I'd be surprised) ask them and... More

parking is a joke, there are signs for the place on a street long before you get to it don't turn in that wrong location. Service was OK but not great. Food was overly sauced and way too salty. Dark and noisy atmosphere, not good combo.
