Diner Reviews
  • "We've been to Buca several times in the past. The food is decent. It's not "fine dining" Italian but more family style classics. When the menu says 2 people and up, really, it's at least for 4 people. You should consider this otherwise you'll have alot of leftovers or wasted salad (which obviously won't keep after the dressing has been added). The service was okay. The food took a little while on a Saturday night but at least there's bread and oil/vinegar to keep you satisfied."

  • "We had to drag the kids here, prying the electronics out of their hands and 'forcing' them to go out for dinner. Once we got there, the unique decor (which includes nude statues that brought a lot of giggles) and the fun atmosphere loosened things up. The food was very good. We took some fun family photos - and had an overall great time. Near the end of dinner, the surly 12 year-old that didn't want to leave the house said "I want to come here again" - the ultimate compliment from a pre-teen."

  • "I love this place - it's so much fun. It's not for a romantic dinner though - lots of kids early on - you might want to come later if noise bothers you. The food is very good at this price level and you definitely leave happy."

  • "We made a reservation for a large party and requested an area with some privacy to celebrate my daughter's graduation. Not only did they give us a private area, but we had almost the whole top floor of the restaurant to ourselves! We ordered the food ahead of time, so it was able to be delivered quickly to the party once we sat down. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, providing great service. At the end of the party, the waitress brought out dessert along with a candelabra with lit candles for my daughter to blow out, and we all sang her a graduation song to finish the celebration with a bang. Overall great service, great timing on the food delivery, very accommodating staff, and delicious food."

  • "My daughters favorite place, so for her Bday she wanted to go somewhere, where they sing and make a big deal for your Birthday. Laughed and sang to another table for there birthday, big sunday with candle, so of course all excited for when they bring the big sunday for my daughter, well we ordered it, but it came with no candle and no song. Very sad experience. But all was ok, because we sang happy birthday to her."

  • "We came here for dinner as a halfway point from Dana Point to The Forum for the Steely Dan concert. We had never been here before. The manager personally greeted us and also found us at our upstairs table later on to ask if we were having a good time. Food was good, atmosphere was fun. Will definitely come here again."

  • "I made the reservation on line for the Pope table. They state they will try to accommodate you but they do not assure it on the web site. I was very happy when I arrived and they were waiting for my group with my request. The service was great and the food was excellent. We were celebrating my nephews graduation and I can say the whole table was very happy with the restaurant choice and service."

  • "The 4 of us go out to eat every B-Day & Anniversary since 1971. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the candlabra to celebrate the special occasion. Food was good, except the waitress did NOT write down the order and brought the wrong dish to the table. She was trying to fix her mistake, and wanted to CYA herself by saying that I ordered chicken instead of the veal. She said 'I HEARD CHICKEN,' HOW COULD SHE when I EAT chicken all week and wanted Veal. I know what I said. I acquiesced and at the chicken. overall good experience except the waitress mistake. "

  • "Great place for large groups. Careful as over-ordering is easy. Waiters don't really warn you that you've got too much food. Review your receipt carefully as we had a coupon for 1 free small entree, we made sure the waiter took the coupon code, he acknowledged out, and still tried charging us for it. "

  • "Server was great, we had an issue with some cold food which the manager came by and handled it more than adequately. Everyone was nice and seemed to want to be there. As a restaurant manager myself I have to say everything seemed to run as well as it could have being as busy as it was."

  • "This was my first visit to the restaurant and I can truly say that it is very energetic and colorful restaurant. Definitely a great place to go for a celebration (birthday, graduation, mother's/father's day). I was pleased at how much was put in to the decoration and felt like it definitely represented the restaurant. Our food was good and the portions are incredibly large. You either have to share what you order or take lots of left overs home. Everyone in our party enjoyed what they ordered and were pleased we had gone there. The service was great and our waiter was very attentive. Will definitely go again."

  • "We had our daughters B-day celebration in the Pope's room and allowed us to exchange dialog across the table and be heard without yelling. The dishes we ordered were very good, but would do less chicken dishes next time. Add a pizza instead. All in all a great place to dine."

  • "Had a great time with the family & the food was tasty. The servers were helpful & friendly. Loved the Idea of the post card- the restaurant had a photographer that took some pics & at the end of our meal presented us with a free post card of the pics he took & an option to purchase other pics. He was not pushy & left it up to us. We were there to celebrate mother's day & all the momies in my family enjoyed themselves"

We had to wait a few minutes for our table even though we has reservations. It really wasn't a problem because our group enjoyed the time laughing about the pictures in the lobby. We'll be back!"

We had good service and lots of great food in a relaxed family-friendly environment. Salads were fresh and very appetizing. Pasta Dishes were excellent. Chicken Parmesan was absolutely wonderful. Thanks for making this another memorable occasion."

  • "The service was very slow. When the waiter finally brought the salad it was not the one we ordered. He said he accidentally picked up the wrong one so he took it back and we had to wait another long time to get the correct one. Our party consisted of 5 adults. We asked for a table away from kids so we could carry on a conversation. About 10 min. after we sat down they seated a family right next to us with a kid that was screaming when they got there and still screaming 2 hours later when we were finally able to finish our meal and get out of there. There was another room right next to us that was completely empty. They should have an area for people with screaming kids and another one for adults."

  • "I made my reservation for 10, when we got to our table it was set for 8. Instead of adding another table or finding us somewhere else to sit, they had us squeeze into this table setting. I was literally sitting on a corner of the table. The pasta was dry, had to ask for extra sauce. We had two people in our party with a birthday and I guess the table next to us also had a birthday. Instead of singing to the tables one at a time, we got one waiter facing us and the backs of the rest. Only one candelabra for 2 people that were sitting at either end of the table. Just saying. Not really a way to make someone feel special. Will we go there again? Probably not."
