Great place for families or groups. Dishes are served family style -- portions sized for 3 or 5 people. Great ambiance and service. Food was good, no complaints, but not fine Italian dining.

I ordered their standard go to dish, spaghetti and meatballs. The dish was so bland, dull, unappealing I decided to just talk with guest. The wine list subpar. Bottom line, you get what you pay for.

Very little food for the money menu says it will feed three but it was just 3 small pieces of chicken any sides or bread is an additional cost and the 3 pieces of chicken would have left us so very hungry

The food was just okay.However, the room we were assigned to was freezing and had cold air blowing out of the vents. The floor was dirty and hadn’t been vacuumed in a while. Management needs to focus on the basics and provide a clean and comfortable environment. We won’t go there again.

It was a great small New Years Eve gathering to celebrate. Management did well checking in and our server was really great! Food was pretty good, not exactly worth the money knowing how much a plate of pasta cost to make, but the atmosphere and friends make it worth it!

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.
