    The food was great and the host was great. Our waitress didn't check on us one time. We asked her for more bread, so she came and gave us more oil but never gave us bread. Then she gave us the pizza and we were waiting and waiting for her to give us a refill on our drink and she never came. We also needed napkins. So finally we just started eating since she never came back. She was being so loud and singing and joking with the bar tender the whole time. She didn't ask us how anything was or anything. We finally got her attention and asked for a box and the check. She came back with the box and said I'm suppose to box it for you but I doubt you'd want me to, my hands are so sticky!. So we just boxed it, paid and left. Worst costumer service

    Buca is a really great itallian place to the memorbilia on the walls to the food in the family bowls. The waiters/waitresses are full of personality and not just obligated robots. I highly recommend this place to families and even to just couples. Awsome place, great food 5 out of 5 in my opinion.

    EATOUT
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    We as a couple and with friends have visited bucca on several occasions and have always experienced a great time, until our last visit, we were a group of 8 there were other families around us who's children were running around and very loud, so loud we could not carry a conversation at our table. We each had a drink or two our server was extremely lax in refills and it took even longer to get a beer. Some of us asked for water which we never received. We also asked for more bread, nope it never came either. Now the food, the quality and quantity just was not there nothing seemed fresh. I will say the tirimisu was good, a bit dry but taste was good maybe I expected better when you pay out over 400 dollars for a pasta dinner.

    Food and service was Excellent. Only 1 thing not happy with. Spending 400 dollars for 8 people and not getting all the food to take home wasn't very nice. I called as soon as I got home. But no one called back. Voicemail said message could be left for Manager which I did. I guess the Manager doesn't check messages.

    Location was very convenient and it was perfect for a little one that was 4. Portions (large) were small. Very pricey. Didn't get what was personally ordered. Just a convenience to get the family together. Wouldn't do again. Veal extremely salted.

    The food is always wonderful here, ambiance is true Italian, and service is fantastic! My husband and I are very picky when it comes to true authentic Italian food, and let me tell you, Buca does not disappoint! The family style service is a long lost art that makes the experience that much better! I highly recommend to anyone that lover getting together to share in good food, wine, and an attentive wait staff! Thank you to Buca for making my husband's birthday a success!

    Our dinner for 2 involved a pasta dish and salad and it was over $40 total. Thank goodness we has a $10 coupon. If you want a glass of wine fork over almost $8 for a very small amount.

    I had mine and my husbands 5 year anniversary here. The food was good and the server was very nice. However because we had a large party they put us in a back room with other large parties. It was so loud I got a migraine and was unable to even eat until later that might at home. You are at a long table so you also can't socialize very well. I understand space constraints but this was horrible. I would only recommend this place for at most 6 to 8 people. Not for large parties.

    As long as you have a group that has taste for same thing or if everyone enjoys trying new things its a good spot to try...I loved family style and the big round table! I only wish everything wasn't al la carte I just think bread and salad should come with your meal. All in all food was delicious!

    It was very difficult to figure out how to order and how much food to get so we all had enough but did not take any home. The bread and service was great! The marinara sauce was a little flat and it would be sooooo much better with real fresh grated cheese instead of the dry stuff. The dipping oil should also be served with so basil or oregano and some fresh grated cheese for a better experience.

    I've dined at Buca's in the past, food and service has all ways been great but this night they where off the mark. The salmon was over cooked, pasta to my surprise was under cooked and my daugther's pizza was dry. Manger comp our meal, which was ok but we would have love to have had a good meal as in past visits. To sum it up service was great and we won't write them off at this time😊

    We took my daughter-in-law's father out for his birthday. Our party ranged from 65 plus to 4 and a half. We had a very good time. Everyone enjoyed the food, the waitstaff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant is loud but maybe that is part of the charm. ( Like a large family holiday feast) The waitstaff sang for my friend's birthday ( which he liked).

    We had a small surprise party for our boss at Buca. It was not my first time eating there, but it was for others and they raved about the food and portion size on appetizers and entrees. Our waiter was terrific. Would not hesitate to go back. Oh, and I was warned by my 13 year old son to make sure I bring him some delicious fettuccine home!

    Haven't been to this restaurant in over ten years since I've sworn off carbs. Strangely enough it hasn't changed at all. Needs an updated bathroom and some spring cleaning, but still has great food and service. Was happy with the amount of options that are low carb-salads and meat dishes without pasta.

    No complaints. Food was good, service was prompt and efficient. Actually for a chain restaurant their food is quite good and above average. Although I would say the spaghetti dishes are over priced when you consider that 1 pound of premium spaghetti is less than $2.00 and their large bowl with meatballs is $32.00+. Anyway it was enjoyable.

    We ordered appetizers; we received our Calamari extremely over cooked. Not sure what Chef or prep cook was working the kitchen that night around 7pm, but they allowed two full plates of Calamari to leave their realm; partially blackened and burned. Other than that, the rest of our family style meal turned out satisfactory.

    This is basically a family style restaurant. Two to three people can eat off of one small entree. They bring out extra plates in advance because they know the portions are huge. They also explain each meal is meant to share. The food is delicious. Very authentic.

    the food was adequate. Nice size serving though. The tables are too close together and there is frequent bumping and pushing by staff and guest. The air condition was off and the staff had to open the doors for a cross breeze. For Mother's Day it was disappointing
