    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/5/2014
    When I made my review I stated "nut and peanut allergy" on my reservation. I didn't emphasize this verbally & should have. When ordering the apple gorgonzola salad I requested walnuts on the side. They were served that way but must have been hand-removed after the fact. After my son took some lettuce/apple and proceeded to eat his throat began to tighten. I sorted through his lettuce and we both saw a tiny crumb or walnut-I tasted it to verify. We had to leave immediately to seek medical attention. It was a one day visit from college. The manager was understanding in that he said don't worry about what was previously served (which was only the salad). In the past we've dined here with the stated allergy and the staff was more attentive.

    Overall food was hot & tasty; the Pope room would not be everyone's choice so disappointed that we were not asked if it was ok with our party. Service was good but no dishes removed after each course making our table overcrowded & messy - very off putting.

    We had a party of 5. the menu offers small or large portions. Small feeds 2-3 people, large feeds 4-6. We bought a large salad and split it, perfect amount of food for 5. We split salmon, chicken Parmesan, spaghetti and meatballs. the meatballs were huge, the salmon was good but a smaller portion. Hands down the chicken Parmesan was the best choice with excellent taste and large serving size. Had 2 beers and an ice tea. Excellent service but expensive, so plan on spending some money here. the above dinner was $120.00 and we had a $20 discount coupon. Would go again only if a special occasion. they take your photo and come back at the end of dinner pushing to buy the photos.

    We had a party of 7 and were seated at a fabulous booth that could accommodate 8. The best part was being able to hear everyone at the table. Spanning ages from 12 -76, each person enjoyed the meal and serving it up family style was perfect for our family. We liked the idea of having a restaurant photo momento and this was a nice touch. In the future it would have been better to bring the additional photos for purchase towards the end of the meal instead of during. Overall, we all left having had great conversation, service and food that we talked about until the next day. Thanks for a wonderful night.

    The food was great as far as flavor. Disappointed for the price that the soft drinks were not free refills. We also weren't offered bread with our salad so we ordered garlic bread which was a pretty small serving for 5 people and pricey. We liked the free postcard picture of our group, but didn't really like having pictures trying to be sold to us. Waitress was a little overwhelmed with the number of tables she was servicing. Service was a little slow and it really wasn't that busy. Probably we go again, but for only a special occasion.

    Made a reservation with Open Table , arrived on time, waited approximately 10 minutes to be seated. Waiter was nice and responsive. Salad and bread came out in a reasonable time. Waited over an hour for our entrees. Waiter said the kitchen was slow, but the table across from us that arrived 30 minutes after us received their entrees before our table. We will not return to this restaurant.

    Buca has great food, from appetizers and salads to pasta and chicken. I've never had anything here that I didn't like, or that didn't match the menu description. They give attentive and friendly service, and huge portions. There is always food to take home. If you join their email list they send you coupons for big discounts, free dessert for your birthday, and cool stuff like that.

    We made reservations and was seated after a few minutes rather than having to wait 30 minutes if just walking in. Service: Slow service. The wait staff seems to cater more to larger parties than smaller parties with less than 4. I noticed a lot of patrons grabbing their own togo containers or oil/balsamic because the service was so slow. It was just easier to get everything that's visible yourself. It took about 15 minutes from the time we were seated to get our basket of complimentary bread. Food: Better the next day once it's been heated up. Our food took a while to come out. We assumed they were being cooked so they'd come out piping hot. Instead the plates were piping hot and the food only tasted lukewarm at best.

    We made a reservation at 8pm and got seated at about 8:15pm. The food took about half an hour to come out but we had bread to munch on while we waited and we enjoyed each other's time so the wait wasn't a huge problem for us. The staff were all very very personable and friendly.

    Had no plans for dinner on a Tuesday night. Felt like having Italian food but was worried Buca might be too busy. It was 5:30 pm, went online and made reservations for 7 pm. Perfect! Easy to make reservations. They sat us right away -- even a little early since we arrived early. Service was attentive and polite. Salad, pizza, chicken saltimbocca, and eggplant parmesean were yummy! Had plenty of leftovers for the next day.

    Seven of us (five adults and two children) had dinner on July 14, 2014 to celebrate my upcoming birthday. We were seated in a quiet area with one other couple nearby. My grandsons, ages nine and six enjoyed the child's pepperoni pizza. The adults had your '1893' salad, the lemon chicken with capers and the shrimp pasta. Salad and chicken were outstanding and the pasta very good. We had large portions and had extra salad and pasta to take home. Our waitperson was attentive, unobtrusive and kind. I shred my delicious gooey birthday brownie with the boys. yum. They loved the serenade and the lighted candleabra.

    One thing I didn't like, you don't really get a chance to talk to everybody in the group, It be nice to have more of a round table instead. The area we sat at was a crowd and you felt so closed in. Also it was very hot and stuffy. I did say something about it the staff and they were going to look into it. I guess they did, but it didn't make a difference. The food was good, and the serves was excellent. When we left there must of been several staff that said good bye or thank you.

    We went to Bucca for my 14 year old son's bday. The reservation online was a breeze, for 15 guest. We arrived around 15 minutes early and had to wait only 5 minutes before being seated. The waitress was awesome. She was sweet, welcoming, very friendly, and assertive. The food was served quickly and delish. Our over all experience was excellent. Would definitely do it again!!!

    I've always enjoyed the food here! But for my party of eight we literally had to YELL at eachother to be heard as the other table in our 'room' was a family birthday gathering and they were seriously and obliviously LOUD!!! That being said, our waitstaff was very friendly, and the food was delicious! We were surprised and pleased when the bill came as we expected it to be much higher.

    The food was quite good, especially considering it's a chain restaurant. The servings were quite large and we had enough left over for lunch the next day. We tend to prefer quiet restaurants but this was not "quiet"; however, we could converse easily without shouting which we appreciated.

    We where there was Father's Day this sunday celebrating Father's day.Ordered Chicken Brucessto ( Which in the menu just said Chicken but no other information was mentioned. ) When the server was serving us we asked what was stuffed inside the chicken, he just mentioned Brucessto but did not explain in detail what was exactly Brucetto had. We ordered spegatti and meatballs for my nephew and asked if it was all beef and not pork as it's against our religion and the server said it was 100% beef. While having our Chicken Brucetto we noticed suasages and asked the server that's the time he mentioned it was pork. The manager came and he was so rude asking what do i do..don't u know it's Sausage? He should have apologized for that.

    Sometimes you go to a Chili's, sometimes you go to PF Chang's, Olive Garden or a BJ's - it's like that, if you want to impress someone, don't go there. If you have kids, want to overeat, need to feed a large number or all of the above, this is your place. I would never in my right mind wait to eat here though, it's not that good...

    We had went here to celebrate our friend Claudia's birthday. I made a reservation for 9 at 2:30 for a lunch. As we walked in, we were greeted right away and the host immediate said "Hi, party for Lena" (which was my name" I told her that there would be 10 people instead of 9, would that be ok. Of course, she ensured us that it was absolutely fine and we were sat promptly after taking a tour of the kitchen. Out server name was "Natalie" and she was absolutely incredible. Being a server myself at a steakhouse, she have us GREAT customer service checking back with us every 5 mins. It was such a funny lunch because we kept spilling our waters and it was just a mess. But we all laughed about it and she cleaned it right up for us.
