  • "I booked a table at the maple grove buccas and all in all it was a very good experience the food was wonderful, the place felt welcoming, but the only thing I think could improve is the service. It took us quite a while to get helped from the waitress."

  • "The service at buca was fantastic. Our waitress was very friendly and prompt. We ordered an entree without peas and recieved an entree with peas. Our waitress handled it like a boss. We had a basket of complementary bread in about a minute and the correct meal in probably another 4. She handled it so well we didnt feel inconvenienced a bit. The good food and great service made for terrific dinner!"

  • "Everything was good except how we were seated. Nine of us in a straight row was impossible to visit. I was disappointed that we were not seated in a round or square."

  • "This was our first visit to Buca and we had a group of nine--six adults and three children. With an online reservation, we were seated immediately and received personal service promptly. Our server was fantastic!! He made great recommendations, based upon our feedback, and added much flavor to our dining experience with humor and his friendly personality. The children were entertained by the environment and loved the pasta. Overall, we were all very pleased and look forward to going back! Thank you!!"

  • "We enjoy Buca, it has a great atmosphere and good food. We have experienced various locations to sit and have dinner. We really liked the tables by the bar area located close to the front doors, however when a group of 8 came in to wait for a table it was too loud for a conversation at our table."

  • "We had reservation for eight but still was crowded into a both and a moved two person table. Eating family style, it was not comfortable. Food & service was acceptable. Should have gotten a better table since group was expected."

  • "The food overall was good (it could have been served warmer) and the portions were very big. My daughter chose to celebrate her golden birthday at Buca with her family and grandparents. It was nice how they sang happy birthday to her. Our only complaint was that our server really made us feel rushed to get out of there. She was great up until she gave us our check. My mother was still eating and the server started taking our " leftovers" off the table and boxed them up. We had to stop her from taking the rest of the food off our table, because my Mother had not finished eating some of the other pasta dishes. It was very strange how she was hurrying us to get done because there wasn't even many poeple waiting to get in."

  • "We went to Buca to celebrate our daughter and grandson's birthdays in addition to Father's Day. We've all been to this Buca before and this was the restaurant that everyone wanted to go to. Our service in the past has been great and the food has been wonderful. Unfortunately on this visit, the service was less than good and while other parties celebrating birthdays around us had the wait staff come out and do a special birthday 'song' - my grandson was disappointed that they didn't do anything for him. At least the food was up to the usual - it was very good."

  • "We love Buca and it was the perfect place for last-minute reservations when our original plans got rained out. It is a fun, casual atmosphere with great wait staff and plenty to see (although some of it is PG-13). We ordered our go-to favorite: eggplant parmigiana (which was as delicious as ever) and decided to try something new -- the chicken & sausage ziti. The ziti was rather bland though it did have good sized pieces of chicken and sausage...won't order that again. We will be back...it's a great buy for a family of 4 (just watch out for the soft drinks, they add up!) We also love Buca for a quick take out item for potlucks -- easy, tasty, and fast!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We came in with a party of 15. A tray full of beverages was spilled at the end of our table and one of the kids was soaked. One of the main entrees didn't come out with the rest of the food. A plate was taken without permission that one of the kids was using and it still had food on it; needless to say the child was upset after discovering the plate of food was gone. When packing up leftovers, 2 of the kids meals were combined into one 'to go' tray; why wouldn't you put them in seperate trays if they are meals from 2 different people? We have been to Buca's before and have never had any issues."

  • "It was my wife and I's first time here. We were looking forward to this as I learned a few years back I was Italian, and that made since as I love the food. As for our visit I was a little disappointed with the lack of flavor of the food."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We had great service and the food is always fantastic. there is so much food you get though, that its definitely worth to bring friends, or to take a bunch home! "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "With a reservation we only waited about 3 minutes to be seated, and there's more than enough decorations and pictures to keep you occupied that long. We ordered two large Buca's, and all seven (big) guys were well satisfied with the rate and quantity.We all wanted the server to bring more bread, but the rest of his service was very good. I will definitely be going back soon!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The tables are close together. Depending on who sits near you, it can be a challenge to communicate. We had one large table near us that was extremely loud. Most of the time, we were unable to hear the people at our own table. The food is decent, but nothing amazing. The service was ok, but slow."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Brought a party of 13 to this restaurant, and had a wonderful experience. The staff was very helpful in selecting quantities to order for the table. Would definitely return with a large group or for a date night."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Noise level was very high , service was mediocre at best. Food was not hot. Broccoli was so cold, we had to send back. Lasagna was very plain with way too much ricotta cheese in it. Poor imitation of a Italian restaurant, having dined in Italy a few times, this is nothing close."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "My daughter wanted to celebrate her 9th birthday party at Buca's, so the 7 of us drove down from St. Cloud. The staff was extremely accomodating for our seating request and we found the service to be outstanding. For dessert we ordered the colossal brownie sundae and the girls loved it. The staff sang a vibrant happy birthday song and made my daughter feel special. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We brought my husband here for his birthday, although, no one at Buca knew this. He wanted to keep it quiet. Anyway, we had a great time and the food is outstanding. The large portions make for sharing and taste testing which is great. Sometimes you'd order something only to find out that you didn't care for it much, but this was great they way Buca did it. Lots of passing bowls and plates so everyone could choose. Thank you very much for a great time, we definitely will be back! "

  • "This was my first poor experience at Buca, ever. Food was fantastic, but the service sucked. Appetizers came & we had no plates, silverware, or napkins. It took at least 10 minutes between the time the waiter said he'd be right back with those items and the time he actually showed up. We were in need of another round of drinks and my brother in law ended up having to go to the bar & order them himself. Dinner comes & guess what? Yep, no plates, silverware or napkins. Again!"

  • "I brought my mother and bride to be to Bucca's for Mother's Day. It was my mom's first visit. Based upon the food and service, it definitely will not be her last! An absolutely wonderful dining experience."

  • "Our family enjoyed the food and the family style dining. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. It was a bit noisy, but should be expected with large groups. "

  • "We have been to Buca many times in the past and always loved it. My wife decided that was where she wanted to go for mothers day. We invited my parents and brought my kids, too. They first seated the 7 of us in booth meant for six people. They then moved us to a table that was much better. We ordered appetizers and they came out 20 minutes apart. We ordered our family style entrees and two of them came out pretty quickly, but were lukewarm at best. The third entree came out 15 minutes later, at least it was hot. When we decided we were ready to get our tabs and leave our waitress disappeared for at least 20 minutes. We feel for the $200 we spent we didn't get our moneys worth. At least all of the employees were friendly."

  • "The experience could have been better if we had a better waitress. waitress seemed annoyed by having to refill your drinks and when we handed her a cell phone and asked politely if she could take a family picture of us on Mother's Day. we were also squished in a corner table with a huge party next to us and they were practically in our laps everytime we tried to ask the waitress something they would distract her and we would never get to the point. Unlikely to return to buca. "

  • "This was our families first time at Bucca and we all enjoyed it very much. The most important person in our group of coarse was my wife as we went on mothers day.My wife was very pleased as well as our two pre adolescent children had a great time as well.The kids both had special soda that is made rite there in the restaurant with cups that light up and flash. The veal parmesan was just fantastic. We ordered a family sampler desert that came out on one huge platter and we all stuck our forks in it and shared,this was so much fun. I highly recomend Bucca and will be taking my family back again real soon."

  • "We went here for Mother's Day lunch with our 3 young children and we're seated in Fat Joe's room. The food came out quickly but about 5 minutes after the food hit the table our youngest started to yell about the "bugs". There was a stream of ants crossing the ledge behind one side of our booth, going down the wall and climbing up onto the table right by him, they literally seemed to be coming out of the wood work. We were less then half way through our meal and now no one was in the mood to eat. We ended up grabbing dessert to go and abandoning the majority of our food. Anyone with young kids knows that a sit down meal with your kiddos takes a while, we were out of there in under 45 minutes. They did comp our dessert because of the issue."

  • "The Maple Grove Buca staff was exceptional in handling my daughter's group of 12 for dinner before her 9th grade formal. They offered a wonderful present menu so the kids did not have to hassle with ordering and figure out the bill, it was already done, leaving more time for chat and giggles. The girls said their table staff were really fun and helpful. I was very grateful at how well the staff handled all the confusion (again 12 - 15 year olds!). They immediately said Buca would make sure the evening was a success for the group and it truly was. Thanks Buca."

  • "What can I say that everyone hasn't already. Went with a large group for our monthly dinner night out. Staff was very attentive and service was prompt and attentive. Food came out hot and promptly. I ordered the lasagna but also sampled the lemon chicken and stuffed shells. All spectacular. Will definitely go back."
