Place was dirty and sticky. Way overpriced for what you got. $7 for a meatball is crazy. Sorry. Our appetizer was overpriced too.

Despite designating the reservation was for a birthday celebration and the server asking at the beginning, there was never any recognition given.

Thoroughly enjoyed our birthday celebration. Food was delicious and free birthday dessert (for which I had a special coupon so it was free) was enormous and more than enough for 4 of us dessert lovers.

Birthday dinner with family. Great atmosphere, lovely and attentive host, and delicious food. We really enjoyed the family style and ordered 4-5 small meals for 6 people and had plenty of leftovers. Gave us a chance to all try different stuff!

You have to like family style dining because there are no single dish options, but if you can deal with that the food is delicious and there is plenty of it. The wait staff is very attentive without being pushy. I couldn't believe we were there 2.5 hours. It flew. Also, wheelchair accessibility is not a problem at all.

We were there on Mother's day which is quite a busy day there and overall they did a great job of keeping up with the demand. We hadn't been in awhile and the food was not quite how I remembered it from previous visits and we were a bit disappointed but overall - it was a good experience with a large group.

Really busy interesting decor. Friendly wait staff, quick to fill drinks etc. This place is really best for groups. Every dish is family style, so every one eats the same food. A little noisy but not so much you can't talk.

Food was wonderful and our server was phenomenal despite the restaurant being clearly under staffed. We did, however, have to wait an hour for our table with other groups coming in after us and being seated before us.

I'd only been to this restaurant once before. The second time we were disappointed in the food - Chicken Saltimbocca was bland, and the side of Brussel sprouts & prosciutto was below average - sprouts weren't cooked nearly long enough. Prices are high for the quantity you get ... and charged $15.00 each for a scotch on the rocks! Ridiculous!

The waitress I had was unapproachable so I tried my best to giving her so many chances to warm up. The food as always was good and so is the ambiance.

The food here has changed a lot. It just seems really bland and is not creative at all. I thought about it and the entrees, even the small sizes, are really expensive (about $23 each). For what they charge, I should be wowed every single time, but I walked out of there thinking that I like Maggiano's a lot more for creative and fresh Italian comfort food. Also, Buca's Lombard location really needs an update. The place just looks dirty and dark. I guess it's supposed to be that way since the name translates as "Joe's Basement", but I can eat at home in my own basement. Even the servers and manager did not seem to want to be there. I felt like more of a burden to my server. She seemed to want to rush our dinner experience and I don't know why because the place was empty on a Wednesday night. There are a lot of other choices out there for Italian. It's just not fun to come here anymore. I will take my business somewhere else next time.

Our serve Susan was awesome!!! It was a nice little place, I think the service sizes can be better proportioned. There was only 2 of us and the smalls we quite big. Pricing was okay. The ambiance seems very cluttered. A lot going on and could use a little updating. The spicy chicken pasta was amazing and could even be a meal itself!

Placed for reservation for 3pm and taken to a room relatively empty but with a party of 10 that was a drinking group loud and very obnoxious. Not the type of meal one expects to listen to when with family for a mid-afternoon Sunday dinner. Why the hostess or manager would set us right next to the party when the rest of room just demonstrates the inexperience of their team.

We will not be back. If the noise was not the issue, food itself was poor quality and tasteless. Not worth $200 , would have been better off at an authentic Italian restaurant that would have had quality control of preparation.

Shame on this location as we have been to Buca plenty of times and have left a very positive experience.

Food is very good and so is the service. The portions are large, so come in a group to share, or if you want another meal or two to eat at home.
