    We had a lovely dinner here - 4 of us. Food was delicious and the wine we ordered was lovely. Food service was a bit slow but to be expected these days. The crab, fresh cherry tomatoes, lump crab & Angel hair pasta was so tasty & well prepared. Salads were fresh. One can’t go wrong going to eat at Buca D’Oro!!

    I very much recommend trying this restaurant. Everything I tried from the polenta & gorgonzola special appetizer, mushroom & goat cheese flatbread, and the bone-in veal milanese were delicious. The staff is very professional and attentive; and the prices are reasonable.

    We enjoyed a post-matinee meal - our first time here. And it won’t be our last! Our meal matched the best stage production we had just seen. The complimentary bruschetta and Italian bread was a well-seasoned opening bite, followed by a Ceasar salad with a wonderful dressing. Our different chicken entrees were equally delicious. The chef accommodated a menu change with ease. Thanks to the attentive and friendly service by the entire staff who worked as a seamless team. Buca D’oro is a partner of the Walnut Street Theatre and we looking forward to making this restaurant part of the next season.

    A very pleasant lunch for 7 people. They were very empty on the holiday weekend so we had a lot of attention from the server. The food was very good. I would recommend and return!

    One of our favorite Philadelphia restaurants. Moreover, they offer a 15% meal discount on days that we attend Walnut Street Theater performances. Great food, and now they have their liquor license. You can't beat this restaurant for an overall wonderful dining experience.

    spinach fettucine was excellent. Husband's bolognese, not the best he's ever had. Your bar tender did a great job serving us, as did our waiter. Chocolate cake for dessert was divine!

    Old school style Italian Restaurant. I miss the white tablecloths from previous iteration. Service needs some work. A bit rough and tumble, and rather clumsy.... Hostess was wearing wrinkled long t-shirt and leggings.... eating a plate of pasta at station. A HUGE no-no. Unpolished, needs a tiny bit of work. Waited 5 minutes for service. Waitstaff/Food Runner needs to speak more softly to table. No shouting, please. Should know who gets what entree. Never checked on us during main course, or offered 2nd drink. Needs major improvement.

    Date night with my husband pre theater. I started with a wonderful glass of Pinot Noir and hubby had a Cabernet. Service was impeccable, professional and attentive but never intrusive. I ordered the Carfiofi d’Oro, perfectly grilled artichoke hearts topped with sautéed shrimp, parmigiana and chopped arugula, as my entree. My husband had the Caesar salad and Vitelli Saltimbocca and a size of penne marinara. We both wanted to lick the plates and used the bread to get ever last drop. We finally realized that we recognized our waitress and 2 other servers.. previously from one of our favorite restaurants. We highly recommend Buca D’Oro and give it a 10 out of 10. Can’t wait to go back soon!! A hidden gem!!
