Buca di Beppo - Wheeling
Food Price vs ValueI thought the value for the food was not what I expected. We ordered 3 sm entree's & 1 sm salad and felt that the quality was very good the price value relationship was lacking. it did not seem to the value that I remember from previous visits to Buca. the chicken parm was 2 med sized breast, which seems expensive considering that it makes each peice 9.99 per breast. Again although it was very good and a little different than I remember from the past. I don't know it just seems expensive especially when you consider that every items was similarly priced for the portion recieved. Based upon the price value for the trend in the restaurant industry is to offer better values. I guest this concept is not found a home at Buca5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DaySpent my Mother's Day having dinner at Buca. Although very crowded, with our reservation, we were seated after just a short wait. Our server (Jorges??) was fantastic. He was so busy and yet, he remembered every thing we asked for. He was prompt in everything and gave us excellent service!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCrowded but goodIt was extremely crowded and frustratingly disorganized getting checked in. The entryway was a mod scene and the person at the computer checking people in was slow and distracted with checking on table and giving instructions to wait staff. They really needed a 2nd person up front. Once we were shown to a table (10 minutes after reservation time), the biggest problem was that the party of five at the next table and the party of 15 at a large table were shown to their tables only moments before us and we all had the same server. That made it a bit slow since the waitress had to get us all our waters at the same time, take orders at the same time, etc. The server did a great job despite that and the food was excellent as always.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for birthdaysI've eaten at Buca di Beppo in Wheeling several times, and, like in the past, had a great time on Saturday, April 27th. For the first time, we sat at the Kitchen Table. It was a lot of fun, and we could see the cooks preparing dishes and the servers carrying them out. The servers, literally all of them, stopped at our table, to show us the dishes other patrons had ordered, which gave me some ideas for future visits. We went to celebrate my wife's cousin's birthday. Our official server, Sam, was very attentive and helpful, and a lot of fun, and the other servers were a big part of the experience, too, as were other patrons passing by as they received tours of the restaurant. The topper was the big green birthday card, signed by the staff.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat golden birthday.Took my daughter and her fried there for her birthday. The staff made it special for her.

Very loud!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for Easter and it isWent for Easter and it is a nice place to eat. Kind of cramped for room. Food was good, not great. Had a couple spills because too small of a space for a place that serves large dishes. Lots of food. Be hungry when you go there.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are a party of eight whoWe are a party of eight who always enjoy our holiday dinners at Buca. The food is always delicious and plentiful. Our picky eaters all find some dish they love. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. The waiters and staff are always so friendly and welcoming and do such a good job in taking care of us. Service is quick and efficient and they always give us time to linger with family after the meal. What more could we ask for! Oh, and the prices are pretty reasonable, and the leftovers are wonderful.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter, Thomas was wonderfulOur waiter, Thomas was wonderful and helped to make for a lovely evening. He made great meal selections and was always on hand to see if we needed anything. The food was delicious. There are so many restaurants in this area. The outstanding waitstaff along with the good food makes this place a winner!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA Fun Place for Italian Food!Buca is a fun place, but it is a national chain. It can also get very noisy and difficult to hear your conversations with each other in the restaurant - especially in the smaller rooms. Food costs can be expensive, but food portions are large. A large portion serves 5; a small serves 2. If you go with a group, the word is share, share, share your food! Join Buca's club on their website and you will regularly get coupons to use at the restaurant. It's free & well worth it!
We try to get to Buca at least 1x/month. It's a pleasure to eat their - especially the chicken marsala!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
