Diner Reviews
  • "Service was slow and the waiter was a bit of a flake. The ravioli was good, but the lasagna was pretty tasteless. Stuffed chicken was mediocre."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "They did a great job serving a party of 8. They are getting back to their previous level of consistency. The food was excellent as was the service. An excellent value."

  • "Only complaint was the service was slower than usual. We have been to this Buca many times and usually the service is much faster. They seemed short staffed"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "We like the food and service. It's definitely on the expensive side for a family. Was a little confused by the bill. He did not bring an itemized bill and was in a hurry as we had a 4 year old with us and a party of 6 adults. Was the tip already included? We tipped him anyway but it was overall too expensive."

  • "I went to Buca's with a party of 7 for my birthday and had a great time. The service was excellent, the food was great & plentiful, and the staff was accommodating when we asked for a larger table. My kids range in ages from 13 - 18 and there is something on the menu for everyone here! Can't go wrong."

  • "We used to go to Buca often. We loved it all!. We found it FUN to send new guests to the bathrooms full of nude statues and pictures true to Italy. It wasn't in bad taste ... it was Italian. This time, the service was terrible, the food mediocre. The noise level used to be "energetic". Now the biggest noise was the server arguing with the hostess who was not dressed professionally and didn't care. The bathroom decor was changed and the naked statue (a cupid) in the entry way had a cloth napkin wrapped around the waist. (If they are going to do that, they may as well remove it and stop claiming to be authentically Italian). It was seriously not the same FUN authentically Italian restaurant it used to be. We won't be going again."

  • "My family and I came for lunch with two little boys and they can be a handful. Our waiter was extremely patience and helpful."

  • "We have celebrated my son's and my birthday at Buca's for the last 5 years. It has been a great time to be together with my family and my brother's. The food is great and so is the atmosphere. All of our servers have worked hard and have been very personable."

  • "The food was fantastic, but the wait staff left a bit to be desired. The parent swearing at his 5 year old child did not enhance the ambiance. Was disappointed no employees said anything to him."

  • "We arrived a little early for a 5:30 pm reservation and were seated immediately in a booth near the bar. Our waitress was friendly and patient as we perused the menu. The free entree coupon we rec'd via email was accepted from my phone. We chose the baked ziti and also ordered stuffed chicken breast -- both were very good. We are not small eaters but still took home enough leftovers for two more meals :) We also had the double chocolate cake which was everything you could want from a rich chocolate treat. I would go back, but like the ambiance of the downtown Mpls Buca's better for it's cozy seating"

  • "Normally when I go to buccas the service is really good, but this time it was terrible and I have no idea why. The waitress forgot my soda and gave my friend his beer, then the soda had ice in it when she brought it which I didn't want. The garlic bread didn't come with the sauce and it took forever for her to get it to us. Our spaghetti came before our plates to eat the spaghetti on, so we had to wait for for that. Then it took forever for our bill to come, then forever for someone to grab the bill. We actually had to wave someone down."

  • "Buca does family portions which is actually pretty cool. Ordering one entree feed a couple with some leftovers; however, everything is also a la carte so it can get pricey quickly without realizing it."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We felt ignored because our waiter was busy with 2 very large groups seated at the same time as we were. We finally got the attention of a WA who was not assigned to our table because we personally knew her to take care of us. It finally became clear to the WA who was supposed to help us out that neither he nor our waiter were doing much to earn their tip. We do not fault the staff entirely for this fiasco but management for not better leveraging his staff to make everyone's experience a positive one. We do not plan to return to this location but are happy to return to the St. Paul location as we do love the food at Bucca's and the rest of the package deal."

  • "We had a dinner of 12 and everyone ordered their own dish and we shared- very simple :) Great service and we had our own small area all to ourselves.....awesome place!"

  • "While it was a quiet night, we did have reservations. We were immediately seated. The service was good. The wait staff gave great suggestions as to what their favorites on the menu were. The staff was friendly, efficient and easily adjusted to our changing orders:)"

  • "Service was excellent but salad was 1 out of 10. old and brown."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • ".Food served to our family on the round open table revolving to access all of us. Presentation of food as excellent as taste and portions large enough for the family there and to take home. Variety of food pleased even the picky child and grandparents. First time at Bucca's. First time there but not the last."

  • "We were there for Valentines Day. Food was fantastic! The best Manicotti and Chicken Glorioso ever! The service was very good."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We were given a booth and ordered drinks right away. Our waitress gave us our drinks very quickly. However, this was not her fault that we waited over 40 minutes to receive our main entrees. And we were not given any type of discount. There weren't even hardly any people at the restaurant that night."

  • "I'm not sure why we made one they were seating walk ins in between those that had a reservation."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Luckily we made reservations as there was a 1.5 hr wait, but it was valentines day so if you didn't make reservations you got what you deserved I guess. The food was good. Being married to woman whose parents were both born in Italy makes me a bit critical of American/Italian cuisine. That being said Bucca is one of the better restaurants for decent italian food. I had the veal parmesean which was tender and seasoned perfectly. Our friends had a dish, I can't recall the name, with a white wine sauce and they also enjoyed their meal. I guess the bottom line is if you're not able to have a real Italian cook for you and you want good italian food Buca is a solid stand by. Matt Skoviera"

  • "I have been going to Buca since the Dan Durenberger days.......probably the late 80's and they have only gotten better. Through the years thery have dropped some real gems but promptly brought them back. Think Mussels Marinara. They have absolutely the best Mussels, and I have had them in Rome, Paris, Brussels.....yeah, they are better at Buca than anywhere I have ever had them. One thing: I prefer my pasta al dente. Sometimes you have to remind the server to communicate that to the kitchen a couple times but remember, I have yet to ever send anything back!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "It was my first time going and I was happy for going. Your survice was amazing I didn't have to wait for anything you already knew what I wanted! Your food was out of this world! I only have four stars on that because I want to come back and try every kind of dish you have! I will recommend this place to family, friends and strangers!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We went to Buca with a group of 11 on Valentines Day. We had a reservation and were seated right away. They put us in a semi private room with a very large round table that the Tweens loved. Our food was good...chicken parm was bad. But two of the meals were "on their way" when the first round of food was dropped off and didn't come. It took us 15 minutes to find our waitress (or ANYONE) to check on it. None of us had anything to drink. Not a drop Of water. It took asking for our check 3 times and 20 min to get it! I know they were super busy, but these are the basics."

  • "loved the whole experience it was a treat a little expensive for a family of 5 but great overall"
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "The food was excellent. We had a large group of 10, but most of the groups were large as well. The service was extremely poor, part of the experience includes service and had we not had an expo person I don't know that we would have ever received refills on our beverages even though I flagged down our server twice and asked for them. We received our appetizers and NO Plates, had to go and find them ourselves on a server station, received our food and again no plates asked waited and had to go get them ourselves. Overall the experience was good but again the service was very disappointing. The only time our server really paid attention to us was after I handed the expo a personal tip, then our server returned and at bill time."

  • "Buca is known for family sized portions, somewhat odd and quirky decorations and decent Italian food. Our server, food and table were fine, however, when we were seated, I thought it was a tad cold in the room off the bar. Maybe it was because outside it was 2 degree temps still kept me chilled. Upon further review of other tables, every kid ages 6-14 was wearing their coat while dining. If it was 65 in there, that would feel like the sun. Not enjoyable at all. Next time, maybe I will wait until it's 65 outside to come back."

  • "We arrived at the Burnsville Buca's 15 minutes early for our 7:15 reservation, only to be told that they didn't have it. I took out my phone to show them the confirmation email, but nobody seemed to care. We were seated in a timely manner, but given the number of empty tables, I wonderwd why they hadn't seated us earlier, especially wirh the reservation mix up. The hostess merely said that happens sometimes with the online reservations. Hmmmm. Thought you'd like to know that at Open Table. The evening turned out okay, but being treated so poorly upon our arrival did put a damper on it."

  • "After hearing great things about their food I held a celebration dinner for 13. We had many servers taking care of us and ensuring our beverages were always full. Tons of food! Stick to the small plates and try more. We will be back!"

  • "we had a group of 11 we had 5 kids 6 adults the kids like everything we ordered, not all kid that friendly although they do have kids menu. the birthday treat was awesome brownies/ice cream in a large martini glass.....yum!"

  • "Many family meals shared at Buca's makes the evening more special. Serving family style brings more options to try and find new favorites. each time is a new experience and yet our old favorites are still around tool"

  • "Had a good experience the day after Christmas. There were 8 adults, 2 kids, and 2 babies. The restaurants had the reservation ready with no problem. It about 6pm, and thought it was going to be more busy since around the holidays. Service from waiter(s) was awesome. The food was good- chicken Alfredo, shrimp linguini, macaroni with tomato sauce, and by accident there was a mistake in kitchen and they brought out a Free Mac n cheese, which was good for kids. plenty for the next day as leftovers. Thank you"
    Dined on 12/26/2013
  • "Overall the food was good and we were happy. we were four adults and five kids and the three kids and two adults would like to have desert. We thought it was normal size and ordered three things. If we were told how much one can fed, one was more than enough. But the waiter took the order and surprised us with huge stuff that he knew we couldn't finish the whole thing. We asked if we can return the two order. But we were told it was already touched the table and could not be returned. It would be very nice if there is some info on the menu or inform customer about the size"

  • "Have dined at Buca's many times, but this time service was horrible! Waiter was absolutely the worst! It was a party of 8 for my mothers 92nd birthday. It wasnt just a couple of problems, it was ongoing bad service frome the moment we got there till the moment we left. We will go back because we do like the food and atmosphere there, but will refuse to sit in that waiters section."

  • "Food was good,particularly the eggplant parm. Service was mediocre at best. Miranda had an attitude and was not very attentive."
    Dined on 1/1/2014
  • "The food here is great. I would say a small portion could feed 4 people. The server was great as well. I would recommend Buca, but not on New Years. We walked in to a rude and clearly stressed out hostess. We had a reservation at 6pm, we were seated at 6:20. Not a big deal, but before we got to our table the rude hostess told us we needed to be out by 7:30 because a big party reserved the table. We felt rushed and the food took a little longer due to the volume so we had to skip dessert since it was 7:30. We were seated by a large party that was yelling down the large table in a small room which made it difficult to talk and even communicate with the server. Not an enjoyable night."
