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. Beverages a good size. Garlic is generously present so if you don't care of garlic be forewarned.
Garlic bread and the other cheese versions are warm, crisp, and tasty. The regular bread is also quite good - just go with the oil without balsamic vinegar - again my preference.
We are particularly fond of the baked ziti (topped with ricotta), chicken saltimboca, and the raviolis.
Sausage and meatballs are good. Their other entrees are also quite good.

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.

Waited an hour for a table only to be seated where two people could not even carry on a conversation. We left without eating...came home and made a banquet frozen dinner. Thanks for wasting two hours of my time
