Nice atmosphere. Food is delicious, not cheap but serves many. If you can not eat everything, just take it home

I was here for a corporate dinner so about 20 people, I guess the theme is supposed to be retro italian garage sale collection of chachkies. The food was over used garlic on most items. Caesar salad was plain, chicken park was pretty good. The room was just over done too much everything. Maybe for a baseball team party!!

This was an excellent evening and we want to thank the entire staff. When we first walked into the restaurant, we were greeted by a very kind woman. She stated it would be about a 30 minute wait...and it was worth it! Our server was Michelle and she was truly a professional, cheerful and gracious hostess. We ordered the Lasagna... More

This place is like walking back in time to the 1970s. The neon sign in the window that claims "sanitary restrooms" had us worried, but all the other restaurants around the Westin hotel were booked out or inappropriate i.e. Twin Peaks. The food here is served in small (for 2-3 people) or large (for 4-6 people). So with just 2... More

I've come here for dinner with my wife twice and it has floored me each time! The wait staff is outstanding! Minor changes and variances to the meal are noted and the food comes out exactly as desired! I often am underwhelmed at Italian restaurants by the bland-ness and same-ness of all the pasta dishes, but Buca seems to have... More

Pretty run of the mill American eatery. Food was good but the table decoration of a large Pope was unusual to say the least. Excellent for business entertaining as well as quiet family gatherings. Quite busy so popoular.

Buca is a chain which serves large portions of delicious food at very reasonable prices. This chain restaurant is good from a couple to a crowd. Usually busy for dinner it is surprising available for lunch. One can order individual meals or the classic family style with small (serves 3) or large (serves 5) easily. Service is fast and friendly.... More

Buca is great for a large crowd or a small intimate gathering. Most everything is designed to share, family style for salads, great Italian dishes and even dessert. I suggest you ask your server for suggestions on both offering and sizes to order - they really do a great job of giving good advice.

I went with my family for Easter Dinner to Buca di Beppo in Wheeling. The food was excellent. There was no crowd so our reservation were not really necessary. But a pasta dinner for five at $250 was over the top. I was just happy that I didn't have to cook Easter Dinner myself.
