This is one of the longest dinners we’ve ever had. Not very enjoyable when you have two small children who are starving. Our reservations were for 6:30 PM. We got there early, but they still sad us several minutes past our reservation time. Let’s just say… By the time we got our food, and finally fed the kids we were not leaving until almost 8:45 PM. It was so bad they offered us complimentary dessert. No extra bread while we waited & our children’s stomachs growled...no additional drinks, and no managers came by to apologize or ask how we were doing. Just our very rushed waiter trying to do his best. We would’ve preferred that they comped our drinks or part of our meal, but the waiter wouldn’t have it. He kept saying we could take the desert home even if we didn’t want it. Oh well! We won’t be going back there again with any children. At least not during peak times like 6:30 on a Saturday night. What a shame.

This is one of our favorite places. Normally we go on Sunday afternoons, every few weeks. It can get noisy. Service is usually good, and then there’s all that food. Chopped anti past salad is a must for us.

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!

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!?

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.

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 .

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.
