Overall not that great of a way to celebrate a birthday. They didn't email me their huge "birthday Sunday" offer so I couldn't get that. The salad was soggy, bread hard, and pasta was dry. I guess for family style it was ok but it will be a LONG time before I go back

hard to find a place to eat on Christmas Day, but when you are skiing and from out of town, Buca is a place you can count on to be open. 6:30 didn't seem to be a late time to eat, but unfortunately, they were out of a lot of things, (Marinara Sauce, meaning anything served with or cooked with Marinara or Rosa sauce was not available)(also out of all salads).. food we had was quite tasty. Server Jesus was friendly and gracious, and apologized for the limited menu, so it ended up being a good experience. Besides, you can't get mad at Jesus on Christmas!

Opentable - you should be ashamed to have this restaurant on your listing. First, the service was unequivocally the worst that I have ever experienced in a restaurant setting. To begin, our waitress left us half way through placing our order. Ten minutes later, she randomly returned and told us that she went to get us “ciabatta bread” but didn’t have it with her. She returned 5 minutes later with cold buns - and no olive oil or butter. (We learned an hour later from another waitress that they have both and should have been brought to the table.) Next, the waitress dumped someone else’s credit card on my plate and was perplexed that I wanted a clean plate (she obviously didn’t offer, I had to stop her to ask for one.) Next, we ordered a dish to go in addition to our meal. The waitress acknowledged this when she took the order, but staying true to form, she didn’t put the order in for the to go dish until she gave us the bill. Finally, attempting to pay the bill — I had to ask for it (fair enough). I tried to give her my card when she brought the bill but she didn’t even acknowledge me. I sat for 15 minutes with the check and my card at the end of the table, but she never returned. I finally stopped another waitress to take my bill.

On to the food - I have been to several other locations in Chicago and Orlando and had a great experience, but here, what happened? We waited for thirty minutes for garlic bread - pretty bad. It was just a bun loaded with butter and garlic. We waited for 90 minutes for a bowl of spaghetti with meatballs and a bowl of penne. Pasta was so poorly cooked that the noodles stuck together, the meatballs were overcooked, and the marinara was incredibly bland.

Oh, but it gets worse - they ran out of food! At 6pm, we heard the waitresses say that they were out of all salads, pizzas, lasagna and garlic bread! How does that happen? By 7pm, they locked the door and turned away customers.
And how many times did we hear sorry? ZERO!

We visited Christmas Day, and we won’t be back. The restaurant was packed, and we waited nearly 30 minutes for our table, despite having a reservation. The food was sub par, and the service was terrible. We finally went into the server area ourselves to fetch to-go containers after our waitress disappeared for the duration of our meal. Overall, I would rate our experience as poor.

As always the meal was incredible. Garlic cheese bread should be a mandatory appetizer before every meal. Chicken carbonara had all the flavor you'd expect. Spaghetti and meatballs was a bit bland. Without the meatballs it's just noodles with red sauce that doesn't pack much punch. Overall though a great place to celebrate Thanksgiving.

We had the Pope table room for my daughter's 17th birthday dinner. We asked for ordering advice to ensure that we had enough for 10 people. Unfortunately, we overshot the ordering and had way too much food. We'll be eating leftovers all week! Wish that we could have ordered more appropriately.

The food was good. Our waiter was great. However, I've never felt more unwelcomed by a host/hostess/greeter, in my life. She seemed very unhappy that we would actually walk though the front door. She didn't even greet me, ask if I had reservations, or ask how many people were in my party. After what felt like a couple of minutes of awkward silence, she pick up some menus and walked down the hall obviously expecting us to follow her. And, yes I did have a reservation as well as additional party member who had not yet arrived. And, yes I do have an expectation to be welcomed when I walk into a restaurant as it tends to set the tone for the evening (or, in this case the afternoon).

Loved the food and service. Not so much the atmosphere, tables are too close together situated in small rooms. It was too noisy, especially if there are big groups or families within that same small room. If you're a couple, ask to sit in the bar area, much much quieter. This was our 2nd time here and now we remember why this was only our 2nd time here. Too noisy!

The quality of the food was shockingly bad. The garlic bread was obviously made with stale bread, and was really rather unpleasant to bite into. We ordered a dish called short ribs with mushrooms, etc. the last item listed being a form of pasta. The “short rib “ was small pieces of shredded meat buried in a pasta dish with a dull white sauce. We hardly ate it. Thinking we had ordered a meat dish we ordered garlic mashed potatoes to go with it. The waiter should have told us both dishes were pure starch. The potatoes weren’t bad. We were very disappointed with our experience: a bad meal and relatively high prices.
