It used to be a great place to go especially for a family, but the last time we went for my grandson's birthday the prices were out of sight along with the drinks were really over priced

I visited this place when i was in Wheeling for a conference in Oct 2014. I particularly liked the chicken parmesan, however, the chicken marsala was not to my liking (too sweet). The price of food were reasonable and also huge (catered for family). I had four chicken breasts to myself. The place is usually crowded for dinner so make... More

The first Buca we went to was in Minneapolis and we enjoyed it very much. My daughter loved the chicken parmesan and the Penne alla Vodka both can be ordered family style for either 2 or 4 people both are great. Our waitress was very nice and very helpful. The food was just as good at the Buca in Wheeling... More

Huge portions here! The food is basic Italian, nothing really noteworthy. This is a great place to come if you are just craving a lot of carbs smothered in sauce. While we have dined in on many occasion, our most recent experience with Bucca involved take out. Specifically with did take out with their "Feed four for Forty" deal. Not... More

This is a chain restaurant with many locations. It's not expensive and the portions are HUGE, however the dishes leave much to be desired. But if you like a fun atmosphere with large portions for big parties at large tables and aren't picky about the quality, this is the restaurant for you.

Our son graduated from basic training at Great Lakes Naval Station the day before Thanksgiving. We had our Thanksgiving dinner here. They offered a Thanksgiving dinner with turkey and dressing and also the regular menu. We ordered off both menus. The food was great and the service was great. I highly recommend this establishment!

Two stars because the food was ok. Just found the place a little repulsive. The wait staff was overheard swearing by my son. Wall photos are suppose to be kitschy but really past that and distasteful. I don't really want to see gross photos where I'm eating, like the one of a boy picking his nose - most were in... More

I will make this short, and simple. If things go well you will enjoy your time there, If they don't do not expect the manager to be helpful. If I said Rude that would be nice. There are many places to eat, I would not go here again
