    Visiting my daughter and son in law who live in Kennesaw. We have been to Buca in Charlotte, but never to this location. My son in laws birthday was a few days prior to our visit and their 3rd Anniversary was 1 Sept. so this was perfect choice for dinner. Our server was spot on with making sure our drinks were filled, appetizers were served before our main course and attention was paid to every detail, down to making sure we had the extra napkins needed. I make a "comment" regarding my son in laws birthday when ordering dessert and our server made note of it and came our singing with co-workers when he delivered the monster sundae.

    We recently went there to celebrate my husband's birthday. I had never been there before. I liked the atmosphere because it looked like we were in someone's house instead of a restaurant. I loved the fact that the walls are covered with photographs and other modern types of art. The family style dinning fit perfectly with our taste and the food was great.

    Caesar's salad and 1893 salad were very good. The Spaghetti and meat balls were only fair. The chicken pam was good. The service was very good. Our waitress was very energenic and attentive without being overbearing. Good place for families, especially after shopping and you want to go out rather than go home and prepare dinner.

    Food was just fair. Everything was a la carte, not even a small side of pasta with your entree. Sides were expensive. Salad should have had green and black kalamata olives, but our salad for 4 only had 3 green olives and no black olives. It was disappointing to say the least. Very mediocre meals at our table. Will not return.

    We were shocked at decor.We had calamari (Carrabba's is better), Pear Gorgonzola salad (soggy w/ very little taste), Chicken Saltimbocca (if you simply must visit this restaurant, this item was ok), Chicken Marsala (too sweet!), brownie (huge...with brownies so hard we let the kids gnaw on for a while).Waiter seemed put out at first,eventually he did warm up to us.(I guess because we had ordered $170.00 worth of food!) (He did give us a laugh when he said he gets the kids pizza when he eats there,probably good advice,can't screw up pizza right!?!) Sorry to say, but I would recommend you not waste (lots of) money on this place! Barely met adequate standards on any aspect of the dining experience from the time we walked in to the time we left

    I really enjoyed the food and it had a very cool vibe with the funny pictures on the walls. I would've preferred that they have the larger parties in other rooms and having so many large parties by our tables made it very hard to hear the person speaking next to you and you end up eating in silence which isn't what you want in such a neat place. Great food, not a great place for a nice quiet meal. Great place for a party or celebration.

    on 2 knives & a spoon. Not a good way to start a meal. My Spaghetti was too lightly sauce & lots of water at bottom of bowl due to not draining the pasta correctly. Buca has went way way down hill since it's glory days. No plans on eating there again. And, for what you get, it's very expensive compared to other Italian joints.

    We made reservations for a table for 6 to celebrate two birthdays. Although we did not request it, they sat us at their "premier" table in the kitchen. It was a horrible experience! The temperatures easily reached 80 degrees and the noise of the constant crashing of plates and talking made conversation almost impossible. The hostess walked 100% of the guests through the kitchen, and announced that our table was "special...reservations only...etc." This resulted in 75% of the customers making comments to us. I felt like I was on display and it was disruptive. Last, it seemed our server forgot we were there. My glass of wine came after my entree was finished. The food was fair to excellent and portions were more than ample.

    We were excited to try the family style dining. The apple Gorgonzola salad was good, but the salad plates were fresh from the dishwasher and melted the cheese for the salad. The chicken with prosciutto was over cooked and dry it was almost school cafeteria quality.

    One of our favorite things about Buca is their way of serving family style. The food is always good so its sometimes difficult to decide which bowls of yumminess we're going to order. We also like that there is more than plenty for everyone and usually leftovers. And of course the kids love the totally crazy and fun art on the walls. Buca is our Happy Place.

    We had reservations and had to wait 30 min to be seated, food had no flavor, very little sauce & cheese on ziti, had no soup, olive oil for bread dipping was very cheap & bland. Our server served us like we were at a truck stop and was not very personable. Over all it was disappointing for we never get to go out as family due to one of our children being away at school and it was just not a pleasant experience!

    Buca has become.... Corporate. The cheap plastic glasses, paper napkins, and I didn't get the mini tour through the kitchen-big disappointment. We ordered our food. The apple salad was a little on the salty side. My friend ordered chicken pasta. I ordered the pasta with vodka cream sauce. We weren't entirely satisfied. The pastas were seriously lacking in cheese, cream, and sauce which is what we live for. The sauce was runny. We both asked for more sauce for our pasta. That didn't help much. Sadly, the head chef was not there. I knew this instantly when I tasted the food. The service was great and management was nice. I took my food home and doctored it with vodka pasta sauce from Kroger.
