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 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.

Service was awful. They crammed everyone into one area with three waiters for 8 tables in our area. The food was overpriced for the amount you get. Why are people walking in the kitchen during flu time? There were waiters hanging out throwing bread at each other in the kitchen on our way out. Then left it on the floor. Another waiter said he would get a clean plate at the table next to us so he was lifting all the plates on the counter. Must have looked through at least 5 then gave the guy one. If those other plates he touched are dirty why wouldn’t he bring them back to the kitchen. Then we both had to go orders the items were very hot where I think a paper bag would have been more helpful.

I love this place. Always excellent food and excellent service! My only complaint would be being crammed in a room when other rooms are open and less crowded. We were in a room with a few kids who couldn't sit still and kept rubbing, bumping and tripping on our chairs because we were so crammed in the room. Noise level is high so if you are looking for quiet, this is not the place. If you are looking for energetic, fantastic food and service, this is the place!!!

Service was great but there were 3 snags:
4 plates were dirty and had to be replaced
1 water glass was cracked and was leaking slowly but still water leaked to the table ( I thought my elder senior guest just spilled but it was the glass)
1 plate has a big chip and had to be replaced

Table too small for party size; multiple requests for drink refills; went to bar to get my own bud light as waiter kept “forgetting”

Last tables bill was included on our bill and waiter was unsure why. Took 20+ minutes after dinner to have this resolved.

My main complaint was the service. Bucca had 3 people up at the check in register who didn't know what they were doing and seemed to have an issue fining people's reservations. I made a reservation for 6 people, got there 10 minutes early and checked in. 20 minutes later I went back up and asked what was going on - they told me they couldnt find my reservation (after the first person found it when I orginally checked in) and told me my party had already been seated. Since my entire party was waiting with me, I assured them that wasn't the case. 10 minutes later we had our table. The waitress was perfectly nice but couldn't even tell us if they had a cabernet on the menu. It's an italian restaurant & cabernet is one of the most basic red wines you could have- how do you not know if you even have ONE on the menu??

After being sat 30 minutes after our reservation time, we were crammed into a regular 4 person booth since one in our party was a 3yr old. One person had to sit in a chair at the end of the table. This made the entire meal uncomfortable for everyone including the server. She was the only bright spot of the night. The food was mediocre at best! Extremely disappointed in this experience especially considering we spend over $160!!

Didn’t honor reservation. Called us 10 mins before and said they couldn’t seat us. They blamed open table. Tried to then cancel open table reservation and book elsewhere. App gave an error stating it couldn’t communicate with the restaurant. Christmas evening dinner. No place open. Super unhappy with the restaurant and open table.

Christmas dinner. They get Cudos for being open. Service was reasonable once we got seated but we arrived 15 minutes before our reservation and were not seated til 30 minutes after our reservation so waited 45 minutes. There isn’t much room in the lobby to wait either.

Packed for Christmas dinner. I didn't think it was so busy at 4pm on Christmas Day but t was jammin'. Got crowded with people waiting for tables as well as take out orders, however, the staff was great handling the situation. The hostesses were very friendly despite the cranky customers. Might have to make this a Christmas tradition.

The food was very good. The cobb salad was exceptional. We went Christmas day and I believe they took too many reservations for the day which took away from the experience. Service was ok and the food came out of the kitchen very slow. There was no hot water in the bathrooms and there was no where to wait. Due to the snow all the mats were soaked the stairs were slippery and the front area was soaked.
