Diner Reviews
  • "I made reservations for a group of 7 and we arrived on time. It took 15 minutes to get our table and then another 15 minutes before a server was available. The food was fine but a little slow in coming out. I give extra praise to the server for working hard to take care of us. Buca is still worth the trip but I suggest that you avoid the 6:30pm timeslot for reservations. My recommendation to Buca's management is to better manage the reservations they accept."

  • "Typically Buca does a good job. We tried one of their Summer Specials and were not very happy with the dish. The Aglio e Oilio Primavera was very dry and the pasta was all stuck together. It appeared it sat on a warming table waiting to be ordered. The waiter didn't offer much of an excuse except to acknowledge it. I did not order wine because as I stated in a previous review, the wine pours at Buca are not a very good value. On the other hand, the waiter did do a good job of accommodating our request to be moved due to a screaming toddler; and he got a nice tip as appreciation. Thanks Erik!"

  • "Really disappointed in the poor service. They had let too many people have time off and the service was slow and the waitress was gone for long stretches of time. Food was good but some was cold."

  • "There was period of inconsistencies in both food and service. I'm glad the new owners worked the bugs out of their system. They added some great new items and kept the some of the old standby's. The three new summer dinners look great. We only had a chance to try one...the Penne Caprese. Was a little too spicy for my wife but I enjoyed it. The only real complaint was the stingy pours on the wine. I ordered their 9oz house red and was disappointed in the short pour. Although we'll be back, I doubt I'll order a wine....not a good value."

  • "The staff was great, very upbeat and attentive! I'm afraid we may have been a bit noisy, but had been placed in an area where the girls could just have fun and not be a bother to anyone else. The food was very good and reasonably priced - it was enjoyable for everyone. Thanks for helping make it a great evening!"

  • "We were seated at the back table in the bar which is usually noisy due to wait staff stacking and wiping dishes with no regard to the clatter. June 14 was especially noisy as 4 wait staff were congregating in the small hallway behind the bar and talking, laughing loudly. This went on through most of our hour long dinner. Granted we can't control the noise level of other patrons, but these young wait staff seemed to have no knowledge of polite or professional behavior. Our waiter once again made us wait for our bread as he was chatting with other waitstaff. He seems to have a hard time balancing working the bar and waiting tables. Otherwise he was attentive to our needs and the food was fabulous as always."

  • "We generally love this place for a family gathering as the restaurant is filled with energy which we enjoy. This night, however, we felt rushed throughout our meal by the wait staff which was frustrating as we wanted to enjoy our family as much as we were trying to enjoy our food. If we set our fork down, someone was there asking us if we were through with our meal... after the fifth time we had to mention to them that we would let them know when we were finished. Isn't an Italian meal one over which you linger and share great conversations???PS: Do you really have to ask for ID's from grandparents that you know are over seventy years old...seriously making them dig into their wallet or purse was not customer friendly.""

  • "We wanted to do a festive family dinner with our extended family. We'd eaten at Buca quite a bit before and were looking for a good night out, but were very disappointed. Our waiter was friendly and positive, but we had to ask (and wait) for EVERYTHING we needed, including PLATES! Food took a long time--even the garlic bread, which came as a half order because we were told that the kitchen staff had dropped the rest. We were in the large group area and literally had to scream to hear each other, which didn't work well for the older folks in our group. It was not the experience we were expecting and hoping for."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Overall pretty great, my only problem was that we had to wait a while even with a reservation to be seated."

  • "We had a good time at Buca - the food was very good as usual! We had the 1893 salad with the Spaghetti with Meat sauce. Each was very good, and everyone took very good care of us. "

  • "Buca puts your pizza on 2 cans of tomato paste. Long wide board. But they didn't cut the pizza very well. So grabbing a piece of pizza and not trying to take the whole pizza. The whole works ended up on the table. Very frustrating. It looked cool. Not very practical. If they wouldn't have rushed through that one little step, I guess it would have been pleasant."

  • "We celebrated Mother's Day at Buca this year. It was a great choice for our lunch before a performance at the Ames Center in Burnsville. The lively, celebratory atmosphere added to our fun. The food is so delicious and so consistent. We have never had a bad dish there. "

  • "I always thought Buca was for large, family only occasions but my wife and I thought it was a perfect place for date night. We shared a small pasta and a side. Had a cocktail and a glass of wine and we left with leftovers. The food was great and the service was fantastic. A great experience. I liked it so much I'll be bringing my extended family back there next month for an anniversary celebration. Make reservations! Don't just show up. Skip Olive Garden and go to Buca. SO much better! "

  • "We go to Buca quite often - this last time, we got the Caesar salad and the Spicy Chicken Rigatoni - both smalls which is plenty for the 2 of us. We enjoyed both very much. Eric, our waiter, was great. He was efficient and also friendly."

  • "Buccas is a place you can always count on for excellent food. We've only had two poor servers in the past eight years which is pretty good. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The food was excellent! Otherwise, it was freezing in there, (our server informed us it was due to the kitchen staff having opened the back door because they were hot.) The coffee was cold and we had to ask the server 3 times to bring hot coffee. She did not bring plates for the entrees. The service not bad, just nothing special. We were led through the kitchen to reach our table, that put a big damper on the ambience, not to mention I was afraid my elderly mother was going to trip with her walker. It was too expensive to have an average experience. I doubt if I'll go back."

  • "We enjoy going here with family. One should never go away hungry. We always have take from the family style servings. They are very good and patient withe young children."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The pasta tasted great and the sauce was amazing, however the chicken was not fresh. It had a re-warmed left-over taste. Even my husband commented that it tasted old and he never notices stuff like that. When we mentioned it to the waitress, she was extremely rude and made no attempt to correct it. We brought our three children so had a $90 bill. Very expensive for old chicken. We will not return."

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "Great place for a large party, very accommodating and making it a great experience!"
    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."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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 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 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!"
