    The restaurant has a unique decor with photos of all types and sizes adorning every inch of wall space. The food was excellent and the wine prices reasonable. They serve their food family style and as such all in the party must agree on what to order as the smallest dishes server 2-4 and the large ones 4-6. I would prefer individual ordering.

  • Disappointing Experience

    Dined on 11/11/2014
    We have eaten many meals at this Buca's and always enjoyed the food, service and ambiance, but tonight was a disappointing experience. The food was up to par and the service was excellent, however, the noise level was beyond tolerable. We were seated in the same intimate room as a very large and noisy group when the restaurant clearly had many other available tables in much quieter areas. Our party of 6 was unable to carry on a conversation and the noise level was beyond distracting. The restaurant was far from full and we could've enjoyed our meal in any one of a number of quieter locations. We would have liked to have coffee and dessert but chose to leave instead.

  • My meat and pasta came out warm.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 11/4/2014
    The caprese salad was very average. One entree was a seafood pasta. It came out piping hot, but all the ingredients were on top of the bowl of pasta. Nothing but pasta underneath. Average to good flavor and taste. I ordered chicken parm. with a side of spaghetti. When the entree was served, both the chicken and the pasta were lukewarm. It was obvious my dish had sat and waited for several minutes before it was served. The restaurant was not crowded, so there was no excuse for that magnitude of a miss. Ample portions, average to good quality and flavor.

    We celebrated my husband's birthday with very short notice to Buca. They were very welcoming and treated us and oour group as we were old friends. The family style for dinner was not only delicious but very relaxing and comfortable and felt like Tuscany. Our guests loved the food and the selection and my husband thought it was one of his best Birthday celebrations. Thank you

    If you are looking for good old fashioned Italian food then this is the place to be. The Caesar salad was excellent and the baked ziti was plentiful and delicious. The service was excellent. The photographs on the wall are intriguing, bringing you back to a better time. I have been there on a previous occasion and the veal parm is to die for. We will be back again as we enjoyed our meal immensely.

    The restaurant was not busy at all as we were there out of season in July. We ordered and our children received their food in five minutes. We had to wait 30 minutes to receive our order. When it arrived, it was served by the bus boy, and it was very apparent that it had been sitting under a heat lamp for a long period of time. Our waiter never came to check on us for refills or to see if we needed anything. It is way overpriced for the service received. I would never want to go in season when it would be much busier. Terrible service.

    Our group of six was surprised that Buca was so busy in mid-July, but the service and food were excellent as usual. Our server, Michael, was attentive, courteous, and personable. The quantities of food were overwhelming but delicious as always. My only suggestion would be to add a couple more mid-priced whites such as Hogue or J Lohr to the available choices. Always an enjoyable place to join friends for a casual night out.

    Veal parmigiana was excellent. Most places serve a veal pattie but this was a real veal cutlet. The lasagna was good and there was plenty of it. Portions are more than generous. Service was very good and the staff was friendly. Prices were moderate. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. ...

    Have always liked Buca. Food is always good. Brought my 91 year old mother for her birthday. She ordered Chicken Parm with a side of spaghetti. Her only complaint was that her spaghetti wasn't hot. Both my dinner and my brother's were hot though. Not sure why that happened with hers.

    I have eaten in Bucca up North many times but were never disappointed as here in Naples. My Spicy Chicken Rigatoni was very undercooked with just a hint of chicken unlike the great amount of chicken at the big C when I order their Rigatoni Martinio. Their rigatoni is never undercooked. My wife ordered the Shrimp Fra Diabolo and said is was only average and she orders this dish were ever it is offered. Thankfully we had a $10 Off Coupon to lessen the disappointment. Not sure if we will try it again. The was a large obnoxious table right behind us. Olser group with too much to drink and not using except able language you expect at a restaurant.

    I made reservations on line so we could eat in the kitchen on the night we visited; we were in Naples for only a weekend. We were greeted with warm and friendly smiles. Our waitress for the evening was Kristina and she was amazing. The management, kitchen staff and other wait staff were very wonderful. This was our second visit to the location and second time eating in the kitchen. Will definitly do it again when in town again.
