Called the restaurant for a reservation just after lunch time for an evening slot. The young lady on the phone did not seem it was her job to assist and after a couple minutes informed me that the first available would be 8pm..I went on Open Table and secured a 530 reservation and eas seated when I arrived...Interesting.
Thanks Open Table!
Just wish the waitress was more knowledgeable...
Always enjoy our family getting together here and great food and service!
My boyfriend and I love Buca. It is a "once a month" type of trip for us for several reasons... The food is amazing, usually the service is on-point and very quick, Buca always has good coupons out there so you are always getting a bang for your buck! Not to mention, who doesn't love pasta with bread and olive oil!?
Mumamia ita was fantastic (in super Mario voice) I
Seated on time . Our waiter Julius had personality plus!
Food was delicious and we had great service for a late night dinner!
We had never had a bad dining experience until Valentines’s Day. Buca’s has always been one of our favorite restaurants. Unfortunately, our waitress was very inattentive. It took a very long time to get the signature Buca bread and oil. In fact, we were halfway through our surprisingly tasteless Caesar salad. That was followed by extremely tasteless fettuccine Alfredo We couldn’t find the parsley at all. So disappointing.
We are hoping it was just a fluke and that the next time we go to Buca it will be great! Fingers crossed.
Pre Valentine’s Day
It is one of my favorite places to go! Everything is delicious! Portions are huge! It's always crazy busy and loud so it's more of a celebratory and fun place.
Food was good but could have been hotter when served .Desi our server was prompt and attentive .There seemed to be a draft of cold air in the booth we were in that made it uncomfortable .A trip to the bathroom was so terribly cold on a night that was 11 degrees outside felt like it would have been warmer to go in the parking lot .
First time guest at this establishment and everything was great. Our seating was not so great, if we had better seating I would have gave an outstanding for the restaurant.
Food quality is consistent and the wait staff is exceptional.
My experience was great, my family brought me here for my birthday. The food, service, and environment was great.
Celebrated a birthday with dinner.
My friend and I ordered a salad. And she was eating her salad she moved a piece of lettuce and there was a stinkbug underneath the lettuce. We immediately got our waitress and told her about and showed her the bug. She took the plate back to her manager and they both came back out saying that the bug must’ve flown into the salad from the ceiling. My friend and I aren’t stupid, the bug was in the salad when she brought it out to us. Disgusting!
It was ok . People were complaining about the temperature. It was kind of cold
I love this place.
Good food waiter was great
What a horribly managed place. 4 male waiters/hosts hanging around the host table shooting the breeze and trading vulgarities, a harried lady trying to corral them but without success. In order to satisfy the demands of a pushy waiter who demanded to get the " next three tables" we are pushed into a cold, cluttered back room at a table far too large for our party of 5 -- 20 minutes after our reservation. Thanks for ruining my daughter's 11th birthday. We left.
Always good for a memorable lunch or dinner! Great atmosphere too!
Lasagna and salad were very good, but the server missed a few things. He delivered the salad, but no plates. We waited several minutes wondering if he went to get the plates, but sadly, no. When he arrived back in our room we had to get his attention to ask for plates. He never refilled our wine either. We also had to ask for water, as we were never offered it. The server was friendly, but perhaps needs a little more training.
It was New Year’s Eve so the place was busy but we got stuck in a side room all alone. The waiter struggled to take care of us. Drinks sat empty for long periods. Food came out warm but not hot but still delicious. I just felt forgotten all night. When the waiter did come by we would have to as 2 or even 3 times for a drink or something for the table. Just not my best experience and I have had mostly great ones.
Great restaurant for family. Food is to die for. Has a true Italian touch! Our server Muhammad was awesome and super friendly. I'd visit again and again!
Great service and very good food! I especially like the Apple salad.
We have been coming here since it has opened and was a bit disappointed this time with the food. Some of the food came out cold. Calamari was not as good as what we have been used to in the past.
Good food. Everything needs to be hotter. Sent coffee and food back for temperature
I have not been disappointed with any of the entrees at this restaurant. Not a fan of the meatballs. Portions are great and prices are reasonable. Desserts are great as well.
Perfect, plenty of food and great service.
I have never had a problem with my service at Buca until this past trip and I have been going consistently for years! Our waitress misplaced our order and we did not receive our side dish until we finished our main course so we had to take it to go. The food is always delicious and comes out super fast! Never go without a coupon either, considering they are advertised everywhere!
Had reservation through open table but waited 45 minutes for table!
no flavor, overpriced for the quality provided. the waiter was great but front desk/ hostess was not very kind
Brought my immediate family (spouse, kids (who are really adults 25,23). We hadn't been there in years (4 or 5) and thought we'd give it a try again. The food reminded me why we haven't gone there in years - over-priced, recipes are not impressive (lots of salt - felt bloated after eating there), and even the deserts were just mildly palatable. Family style restaurants are always hit or miss - but $30 for a plate of ravioli or spaghetti is pretty steep. And before you think I am price - sensitive - I am not. I've got an MBA and am a frugal and a discerning shopper - the marginal utility of this meal compared to others my family goes to isn't there. I can take my family for a meal at Wildfire or (our family favorite) Ottimo in Orland Park, and have a better meal for less - and won't leave feeling like an inflated goodyear blimp.
The service was excellent - a very attentive waitress (Jessica I believe) was our server.
Lasagna lacked in flavor, the lasagna noodles were overcooked and flavorless, no herbs detected in sauce. Alfredo sauce lacked garlic and very runny.
Fun place but very noisy. The retro-Italian decor is cute. The salad was tasty and the bread was fresh. The pasta was generous, but over cooked. The server was friendly.
Was not happy with where we were seated, we had a 5 o’clock reservation so we beat the evening rush and we were seated in the bar area. Our table was right under a air vent with cold air blowing out on us. We asked the waitress to see if they can turn the air down, and they turned it down alright to even colder. My mother in law was wearing her jacket at the table. I’m he food was just ok, the pasta was very bland and the chicken was good but a little dry. We had to ask for oil for our bread a couple times. For the price we paid for four people it was not worth it. Won’t be going back there anytime soon and I would not recommend to anyone.
Food was Bland. Waitress was nice, but told us they didn't have special when they did, was rushy when placing our order, and kept removing things from our table before we done. It wasn't noisy because we were sat in an area alone which was cool by us.
Overall, left full but not happy or satisfied. Won't be returning. I gave them 2 stars instead of one, because I've eaten and have dealt with worst at resturants in the past.
They seated us on time. The waitress was very nice, as was the manager. The food was delicious. Portions are huge-great if you like leftovers. It was a memorable birthday dinner.
We had several different entrees however the Lasagna was awful- it was burnt and tasted over done- the waiter was very busy with other guests and we had to get up and go to the bar for drink refills. Not an excellent visit
This restaurant is a perfect place to bring your family and enjoy good food and wine. Their Gluten Free items are also very good.
