    My husband and I recently ate at Buca, and had great service as well as good food. We had the Mixed Greens salad, small, and split a pasta entree, the Chicken and Sausage ziti. It was all very good, and served piping hot. Our waiter was attentive at the right times and had a fun and cheery personality. This was not our first time at Buca, so we knew that we wanted to split an entree and salad. It worked perfectly, and we came home with a meal for both of us in leftover pasta. Our only complaint is that the chicken and sausage were both not very existent in the pasta, it was hard to find. We would have liked it better with more meat in it. Pasta is so cheap, it was surprising to find only small bits of meat when the dish was named for it.

    My wife and I have been to Buca a couple times but we had the opportunity to take a couple newbies. We requested the table in the kitchen and our newbies thought that was great! The food was really good and it was fun being in the kitchen to experience the sounds and smells of the kitchen. Good job Buca!

    The food was decent, although I'm not sure about the portions minimally feeding two people. Was disappointed that they had the fake parmesan on the table instead of fresh. There was a couple of guys who were swearing very loudly at the table next to us, and I wish staff would have addressed it because I'm sure they heard it.

    We received lots of food for the money! We ordered the veal because that is the main reason we went there. It was tough and stringer, chewy. Not good. The marinara sauce was mostly just tomatoes, not very saucy. The baked ziti was better warmed up the next day. So so I guess.

    Our food was excellent. This was my family's first time being here so the advice from the waitresses was very helpful. We did manage to order too much food though and would order less next time. Just the experience of eating at Buca's is awesome! There was always someone stopping at our table and checking on us. My kids thought it was awesome. I would highly recommend the cheese manicotti off of the baked dishes!

    It was our wedding anniversary and were looking forward to a great dinner at buca. We were seated and given water, but then no one talked to us for 12 minutes. Not willing to ruin our special night, we left. The manager understood and was compassionate, but we didn't want to be there any longer. I will dine there again, but was disappointed.

    We used a great coupon on our visit and got great value: a basket of crusty garlic bread, a huge bowl of tangy Caesar salad and a platter of delicious baked ziti. And the mammoth fudge and ice cream sundae for desert (not included in the coupon). Topped with a good Italian wine and we were well sates. My first visit and I would definitely go back and recommend.

    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!

    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.
