Diner Reviews
  • "This is a great place when you need a good hearty meal for a group. They were very accommodating and served us quickly. The service staff is very friendly."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We were a group of six and ordered the Apple Gorgonzola Salad, Calamari, Cheese Bread, Baked Rigatoni, and Chicken Marsala. All of it was absolutely delicious especially the salad and Marsala. I would definitely order both of those items again especially for our non-pasta diners. We had leftovers, but it felt like the right amount of food to order so everyone was able to try everything and the amount left was not ridiculous. Our waitress helped divvy it up into containers so that we all had a little of something we wanted."

  • "Buca is a good family place. Portions are large which is a positive, however the quality of the food was extremely disappointing. The Ziti was bland, the sauce was made with velveeta I swear, no flavor whatsoever.. The Caesar salad was very good.. too many kids running around the restaurant. Very surprised that parents let their kids do that. ."

  • "The food was just ok. The service was just okay. The prices were higher compared with the quality of the food and service."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "We enjoyed the food and the service was great. The only complaint I have is that the table where we were sitting was on a hallway so there were quite a few people walking by very close to some of our seats."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Everything was great except there was hardly any sauce on the pasta. We order three large pasta dishes and they had very little sauce on any of them. We asked for extra and the brought us 2 small bowels of sauce? Felt like we paid 20 some $ for a bowel of noodles! Would not order pasta again. Mussels were amazing!"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "We had a special occasion to celebrate, great seating at a round table, and enjoyed a fabulous dinner family-style. The service was great and everyone loved it...we'll be back! Wouldn't change a thing!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "We had a wonderful time. Food was delicious except that the our penne vodka was super spicy which was hard for my kids to eat. The tomato sauce was the tastiest I have EVER had in a restaurant. Our server didn't seem that interested in us - we had to ask fir bread (everyone else got it automatically) and she didn't bring us extra napkins (we had children with us) and that made the night less enjoyable. I would highly recommend and come back myself. The food was worth it for sure!"

  • "My wife and I had late evening reservations on valentines day for the Eden Prairie location. Upon being seated, we asked if we could be moved to a both as there appear to be several open and the immediate seating area. The hostess looked around at several open tables, and said there were no clean tables available. After being seated, we waited about 10 minutes before being acknowledged by a server. We again asked if we could move to a both and she said there was no problem with that and allowed to us to move to a table of our choice. About 10 minutes after that, another server came to take our order. After receiving our food, we realized there was no silverware. With no server in sight, I went to the server station to get silverware."

  • "They have valet parking which I normally pass on but here, it's needed. Get the mozzarella garlic bread! I prefer the chicken marsala over the veal marsala and now I know that."

  • "I registered bucca for valentine special dinner , after arrival without waiting we got good table, we had wine it was superb. We ordered lasania it was great, music was romantic, service was pleasant. Overall great first experience at bucca.:)"

  • "We took our 19 year old daughter there and had her Aunt from Florida there and her grandparents. The place just has a good aura about it and food and the wine give you a good satisfied feeling."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "It's Family Style, meaning Fam-Friendly; we knew that going in. Since we got married at Buca (private back room, separated from the noise of the place), we have a romantic attachment there. It of course has great romantic potential (i.e. romance is kinda where families COME from). So we thought it'd be awesome for Valentine's Day. It wasn't. This is NOT fault of Buca; they were fantastic in all the ways they could be. But a family of 18 people, 3 of them 2 years or under, a mere 12 feet away, makes the Noise Level meter a joke. It wasn't "Energetic" - it was piercing. Polite parents don't take loud kids out on Valentine's Day. I never did. But if they do, Buca's a fair choice. Hence, horrible for unfortunate couples seated in same room."

  • "Our waiter was attentive and prompt. Food is always great. Décor is so fun we could look around for hours. Love it!"

  • "Love it. Had an amazing valentines with mi amorsita."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I have been to a Buca's before, but none of my 7 other family members that came to town. I chose this place because they wanted Italian food, and I knew they would like it, but I didn't know they would LOVE it! They loved the way it was decorated and the atmosphere, and couldn't stop talking about how great the pizza was. Would recommend this place to anyone! Very unique place, authentic Italian food, great service, and just an overall amazing experience."

  • "Service was good, although we were seated next to a screaming child which spoiled date night. Our, and another waitress, did not know soup of the day. They went to check but forgot to get back to us and by the time she remembered, we already had our dinner. Had to request refills of our soda, instead of being offered. Our order came, but mine was not what I ordered and had to be returned. Waitress forgot extra sauce we had requested at time of ordering also. Buca used to have more authentic Southern Italian and Sicilian food, but seems to have lost some spices in the past few years."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "They really catered to my small party and made it a special night."
    Dined on 9/4/2013
  • "We celebrated my sister's birthday here. They had signs for several special occasions to put at the table. We were by 2 other tables that had birthdays. The staff sings and claps. So fun to embarrass your loved one with a surprise birthday song! Staff was great. Food was just as I remembered it. Not too loud so we could talk."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "We had a group of 7 people gathering for a birthday dinner. All the food was very good. The food is served in sizes feeding 3 to 4 and 5 to 7 which does create a problem if everyone's tastes do not agree on what to order. You generally end up ordering too much to satisfy everyone."

  • "It was a very pleasurable evening with wonderful food."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "Love everything about Buca......but the noise level. Hard to carry on a conversation in a group."
    Dined on 1/9/2014
  • "You always know what you are getting at Buca - good, wholesome family style Italian food. Great for groups."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "After this last visit, I won't be going back. There's little to no sauce on the pastas. Too much grease on the chicken entrees. Server never refilled glasses, we went empty on our drinks."
    Dined on 1/9/2014
  • "We've had dinner here twice in eden prairie. service was very good, took our 13 year kid son and his friend and they loved the food and there was plenty. This is a great place for families looking for more than just pizza"
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "My family and I dined here on NYE - grant it we knew it would be busy but we didn't even have a server the whole dinner. the manager took our order and served us but when it came time to give the check - that is when the server showed up. I love Buca and this was out first time at this location - but you would think that KNOWING NYE is a busy night they would have staffed appropriately. The manager did a decent job but just found it tacky that the server finally attended to us when it was time for us to pay."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "I love this place! Everything was perfect, Service was superb (and we had a huge group of close to 30). Food was delicious, hot, fresh, we had Zita with sausage, so creamy and good, Marsala was to die for, way better than my recipe. Chicken Parmesan was excellent.. Atmosphere was perfect., great for a big group, you can be loud and not bother others. Manager even checked in with us :)"
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "We have eaten at Buca's a number of times in the past year. The last 2 or 3 times the waitstaff have been extremely pushy and intrusive, and due to this, I doubt we will go back. We usually go with a party of 8, and the waitperson continually presses us to order the full meal at once, rather than letting us order appetizers, then salad, then the main courses. The last 2 visits, the waitperson has asked us at least 8 times whether we were "ready yet." I find this type of high pressure service annoying and intrusive. We will not be returning to Buca's even though we like the food and it can be a fun place to celebrate an occasion."

  • "We have been to Buca several times before and each time was a very good experience, but this last time the service was good but the food was a little off. Most of our food was dry, missing enough sauce for our food. Our apple Gorgonzola salad tasted bitter."

  • "Have been to the restaurant before and knew I loved it. I was so grateful that they were open Christmas eve for dinner as this was my first holiday since losing my husband. They made it so easy. We had made a reservation, but got there early. They said no problem and were actually able to seat us right away. The ambiance of the place is always my favorite part and I enjoyed the happy atmosphere and all the Christmas lights and decor. The food was fabulous as always as was the wait staff. Just made my first holiday alone a little easier. Thank You."

  • "Christmas Eve tradition at Buca is great. It was extremely packed this night, more so than in past years. But our reservation got us in and seated in a timely fashion. All the servers were extremely busy; the entire place was. But our server made us feel like we were his only table. He warned us that the kitchen was backed up so food came as it was ready. All the food was prepared correctly and tasted great. It was a very enjoyable evening."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "They were completely unprepared for a busy night and tried to fit in customers who did not have a reservation with a full reservation schedule -made for a 45 minute wait after our reservation time with small children who did not tolerate the wait; on a holiday evening, however, we had little other choice but to stay"

  • "Our reservation was for 5:00 on Christmas Eve. The parking lot was full as always, so we were glad we made a reservation, especially on this night. Our server, Rowdy, was especially cordial and outgoing and made our evening that much more enjoyable. My wife and I ordered a small serving of cheese filled ravioli with meat sauce, the same item we ordered many times before. The meat sauce was even more delicious than usual, better than we have ever eaten anywhere else. When Rowdy came by to ask if we wanted dessert, we ordered another serving of ravioli to go instead, which will be our meal for dinner tonight. Buca never fails to impress; the food, wait staff and ambience are all top shelf every time we go there."
