The food was not anything special. The service was really bad for how slow the resturant was. Our food was delivered by another server and our server had not brought out plates yet. The server who delivered our food just dropped it and left. We sat there without plates for 4 minutes before our server came back! Really need vegan options because it caters to large parties!

The Linguine Frutti di Mare was very good as always. We decided to order something different; Pappardelle Sugo, Bologna. The taste was very different; very much like a BBQ sauce. Unfortunately, the waiter brought a large and we only ordered a small, so there were a lot of leftovers. I'm still trying to fix the dish to make it edible.

It was my birthday, so we got the Colossal Brownie Sundae free. It was excellent. Birthday or not, I'm definitely ordering that again.

Next time, I think I'll stick with my usual; Spicy Chicken Rigatoni or Baked Ziti. Never a disappointment with those.

The food here is mid range. It’s never outstanding but we go for the ambiance. However this time it was raining outside and inside as there was water leaking from the ceiling. The service was very slow.

I met a good friend for lunch and we had a wonderful lunch indeed! I introduced her to the Chicken Marsala and she wants to come back and order it again! The food was delicious and of course we had left overs as this place serves food as family style. We had a great waitress and I wish I remembered her name , but, I do not. I have not ever had a bad experience here yet! Remember to sign up for the emails...the coupons are worth it!

Super $$ and the place is dumpy...we paid $18 for a 9 oz moscato and $12 for 6..prices were not listed and waitress did not disclose.
The booth seat was worn out and uncomfortable and the place is just a whole in the wall...I won’t be back.

We had a 630pm reservation but did not get seated until after 7pm. The manager did a good job communicating the delays throughout and comped us on a few appetizers . Big respect for doing both: communication and a treat.

The food at Bucca is very good, no complaints. We had a difficult time understanding why the owners would create a menu that no longer allows you to choose a dinner for 1 person. It's either for 3 or 5 people. As a result, if you choose for 3, you pay a lot of money for that particular food item. Yes, you can take some of it home, but that isn't always what someone wants. 2 women chose an item for 3, and it fed 2 people, so we paid for something that is geared for 3 people and the cost reflected that. My husband and friend chose an item for 3, and they ate all of it, plus were looking for a little more to eat. Their choice clearly turned out to be too small for 2 men to eat, but what would the alternative been? Choose another dish, that supposedly fed 3, and charged a lot more money? It's ridiculous, and as a result, Bucca has lost 4 customers to any future visits or recommendations.

We had a 3:30 reservation and arrived early. They were able to seat us, but unfortunately we had a party of 10 and we were sat in a room with a large party of over 15 while the rest of the restaurant was left empty. The other party had small children who were walking around and while I did not mind, I felt that my event suffered a bit because it was so loud in the room.

I dropped off a pre-set menu the day before, which was never reviewed because a request was not able to be made and I was not told until after salad was served.

I do feel that overall the food is good and the service was fine, there was nothing that was outstanding about either. I know the food quality and the prices are in check, I still feel that overall eating out is an expensive experience.

For years we have enjoyed Buca de Bepo in Lombard but the quality has really declined. Our family of 4 ordered the large family salad and the lettuce was wilted, dry with 2 black olives and 2 tomato chunks - that's it - for $30!!! We also had a large family style serving of pasta - all 4 had water but still with the salad & 1 pasta our bill was $90!!!
Change your ways Buca - we'll see you then.

We used to celebrate every Mother's Day, birthday, and Father's Day at this restaurant, but this last visit had crossed this place off of our "go-to" list. I had reserved a table for 7 people and arrived at the restaurant 15 minutes early. Two walk-ins arrived and were seated before us. At that point, I checked into the front again and asked for an update on our table. We were taken to the backroom and showed a round table that would barely fit 6, let alone 6 adults and 1 high chair, a total of 7 people. There was one other group seated, the rest were empty tables with "reserved" signs. I asked if we could take a rectangle table and was told those were for reservations, in which I replied, "we had a reservation." The lady was kind enough to check up front to see if we could get that table, but came back and we were told again, the small round table was the ONLY one we could sit at. I said that I would like her to check other rooms-- as at that point, the restaurant was NOT very crowded. We were taken to another room and asked to sit down at yet another round table (the same size as the other one, but this time in a more crowded room). The table we were seated at was less than 5 inches away from the booth so nobody could walk behind us without bumping into our chairs--really great for when trying to enjoy a meal, NOT. The server really tried to be attentive, but was run-down with too many tables. Drinks were not refilled, but again, she really tried--so this review isn't against her. The food itself was incredibly dry, so much so that we had to ask for extra sauce for both dishes. At the end of the meal, I asked to speak to the manager--who was standing in the kitchen. He pretended to be doing something else as I stood there, waiting for a quick chat. A second manager that just came on spoke to me and offered a gift card to "fix" the situation- still waiting on "fixing". We won't be back until it's remedied.

$30 for a pound of pasta is outrageous, even though we had a coupon for $15 off a $30 purchase. It was an additional $18 for three sausages with some peppers. It was the most bland meal ever. We will not be back, as this place was once our favorite spot.
