Diner Reviews
  • "It was the perfect place for our Easter dinner. We have adult kids in different areas and this was the perfect location for everyone. We loved that we could fit in one of their extra large booths, which allowed us to visits and be able to hear each other. The wait staff was fun, helpful, and efficient. The food was amazing! Each couple picked out one thing to share. Family style was great as we all got to try things we might not normally order. Great evening!"

  • "Buca is a special occassion restaurant for us, mostly due to the price. But because of the experience we normally have, it's worth it. Everytime we go there the service is fantastic. Our waitress this time was not up to Buca standards. She was less than attentive, was clearly overwhelmed, and she didn't meet the expectations I had when coming to Buca."

  • "Our Daughter picked Buca for her Birthday Dinner, and we were all glad she did! The food was excellent, service great, and we love the atmosphere. We wish we would have had a larger group so we could have been in the Pope Room. "

  • "We've been to this Buca numerous times before. Service is always friendly and attentive, and the food is consistently very good. This night was no exception. It's tough to go there with a small group like our family of four because the portions are so huge and everyone likes something different (other families may be more consistent in their taste so may find it works perfectly), but with a larger group it's fantastic. The bonus was that we had plenty of leftovers that were as good reheated the next day as they were served straight from the kitchen. I've certainly had better and more authentic Italian cuisine, but for a kid-friendly, group-friendly, and very reasonably-priced restaurant it's really hard to beat."

  • "We were seated promptly but from there it went south quickly. We were seated directly under a 3 ft. square vent blowing cold air. It took us three requests, one hour and a threat to move ourselves or leave before they turned it down! The service was fair at best. The food quality varied by dish. Some were poor and some were fair to good. The value of the food ....quantity for price.....was poor! We will never go back to Bucca's."

  • "My wife and I went here to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant itself is very well decorated and has many interesting things to look at. The staff at the restaurant was very warm and friendly and made you feel very welcome. However, apart from that I was very disappointed in our visit. We ordered two small pasta dishes (a shrimp pasta and chicken carbonara), an apple gorgonzola salad, and garlic cheese bread. The salad was good and the cheese bread was so-so. However, both pasta dishes were bland and overcooked. We had to add salt to our pasta to be able to eat them. Also, there was a large party in the same room as us that was very loud and obnoxious. This was not an enjoyable experience for us."

  • "We were there for dinner with friends and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff was great. It is clear that the bar staff enjoy their jobs and their customers. The food was delish and the server was very attentive. I especially appreciated how she packaged up each course and had it ready for us to take home without even being asked. Loved the chicken prosciutto. I wish I had saved room for dessert."

  • "We found last minute reservations for 9, which was fabulous! Thank you Open Table! Very crowded at 7pm, getting hot, but a fun atmosphere for very noisy groups. We had a good time. Food was as to be expected in a family type dining place. No complaint but not thrilled. It worked out very well. Would I go again? Sure, in 6 months with a birthday party."

  • "Had spaghetti an meatballs and Alfredo. Food not as good as it used to be. Bland. Waiter was wonderful though, very funny."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We took another couple there for their fist time. Great waitress and fun décor.. Good food and wine. We shared the Lasagna and they shared the Ziti. They loved it..We had a great time. They want to go back next time they come to visit."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "I felt the price for the amount of food was pretty high. We ordered the spaghetti. If we wanted meatballs with it..each one ran 6 dollars. If we ordered a salad that was 13 dollars. There was no refill on the bread and the beverages were separate as well. We ended up not getting dessert because we did not want the same things. We went here to try out family style, but realize this is not for us. We felt the experience was a bit confining. I also felt that the amount of food was too regulated if you will. In all fairness, we were a party of 6 and we had a coupon that gave us free salad and bread, so the price for us that day was fair. If we did not have that coupon we felt the food would have been too much for the money."

  • "Decided to go on a double date with a couple we're close to. Our girlfriends hadn't been to Bucca's before, so we thought it was high time they did! And they were not disappointed! Food was great, portions huge as always. We ordered quite the feast - 3 small entrees, a salad and dessert. Everything was amazing save for the chocolate volcano cake; it was a little dry. But what really made the night was our waiter Jose - he set the tone for the evening from the get-go! Very friendly, personable, and attentive, he was great! Will definitely be back, and hopefully we'll have Jose again!"

  • "I love Buca, its great for big groups. Dining family style is fun, unstructured, the kids love it, and the food is awesome. My only complaint this time was a rather inattentive server."

  • "Food was great. Generous portions and great taste. Shannon our server was very nice as was the supervisor Melissa. They made our experience so much better than our previous experience with 2 other Italian restaurants in Maple Grove."

  • "My first time ever at Via and was pleasantly surprised. I felt like I was at an Italian restaraunt my family frequented when I was a kid. Went home full and happy. Great wait staff, lots of smiles all around...."

  • "Our servers where great. Very knowledgeable and friendly. We were a loud group and she made us laugh and there was great interaction. The food was amazing along with the specialty drinks we had! Our group had a fabulous time and we can't wait to come back again. We all work/live in Elk River but we will definitely come back!!!!"

  • "Fettuccine was sticky and tasted like it was leftover from last night. Should have been much creamer than it was. The baked Zita was better, but not great. The Quattro el forno was very good and I would highly recomend that because of the variety. Lastly, the house salad was excellent and enough for 8 people. don't forget your 4 eat for $40 coupon."

  • "I was at Bucca on March 21st with my family to celebrate my birthday. Our meal was very good, actually the best tasting one I've had there in a long time. Our service was fair. Our drinks sat empty for periods of time. I realize the restaurant was busy, but our server visited our table said you need such and such a drink we said, yes. Then she came back and said, oh your drinks...obviously, forgot. Overall, our experience was good. I titled my review as Pitty Party, because I received my "free" birthday brownie and I have to say, it was very pathetic. There was a total of three bites of brownie, a small scoop of ice cream that was covered in whip cream. The whip cream - the least expensive of all was the majority of the dessert."

  • "With a group of 9 people, we all had enough to eat just with 2 family large style entrees and a salad with bread, we had a blast with our server, he made the time very enjoyable and fun."

  • "The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was fabulous. We stopped in to share the enormous brownie sundae. The gelato was so tasty and the brownies were deliciously gooey. My daughter loved the mountain of whipped cream and sprinkles on top, too. We washed it all down with tall glasses of cold milk. It's always a great time here!"

  • "I made reservations for 8 people @ 7:15 for my husbands birthday. He loves Buca's he is Cicilian. So he and I came a little early to have a glass of wine. We waited for our family to show up. When they showed up we were seated in the bar corner (not a round booth) but a table that had to be added too. Very tight and uncomfortable to say the least. I literally had to slide in 4 people from the end. I really think that this is not very customer friendly, so I asked the waitress why we were sat in the bar and she told me that they had just let some of the staff go because they were not that busy. UGH! excuse me we chose Buca's to have a fun evening and to celebrate his birthday. I made reservations in advance online so they knew we were coming"

  • "Our hostess was very rude to us. The manager on duty went out of her way to make it up to us and did apologize many times, but it starts your evening off poorly when the person who seats you is not friendly."

  • "This restaurant makes large groups feel welcome! In other restaurants they make you feel like its a nuisance to fit you in, here it's a standard. Making a reservation with them was super easy online."

  • "Celebrated my daughter's 13th birthday at a table situated in the kitchen near all the excitement of chefs cooking and calling the runners to deliver hot food to tables. The food was outstanding -- all fresh flavors. We felt like we were dining in the heart of Italy. Service was perfect!"
