Good food, pricey, but good.

Went with several business partners to discuss work and have a beer or twenty. Appetizers were great but the calamari was freaky. perfect texture and not chewy. I can honestly say it was the best I've ever eaten. Pizzas we ordered we amazing. The crust was different but still good. Great dining experience!

Buca is a quirky place with various little dining rooms to choose from..my favorite room is the kitchen..one booth where you can watch the cooks and the servers bring various dishes by to show you as they head to delivery in the dining room. arrive hungry..dishes are meant to be shared! The food is wonderful and plenty!

I went here with 2 friends and we all enjoyed the food. It is served family style so we ordered 2 entrees we could agree on. I ate the lasagna and it was very good. Definitely worth going to again.

There's plenty of parking at this restaurant and the portions are large enough to share as the salads are also. This makes it a great value. The food is good with a typical chain menue. There's no fancy Italian cooking here but it is good. I love the big meatballs . There's a warren of rooms and noise varies from... More

We had a birthday dinner for my grandmother in the semi-private room with a bust of the Pope as a centerpiece. The room is fun and great for a big group (we were 14). Tavo, our server was very attentive. The food and wine was good.

Good food and plenty of it! However, we were given the 'Pope' Room to dine in. A very large circular table with a large 'lazy susan' on it - okay that's fine. But in the middle of the lazy susan was a bust of the Pope in a perspex case, which revolved around with the lazy susan. A bit weird... More

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
