    Chicken Parm was excellent, but the baked Ziti was tasty, but very dry and needed more sauce. Our waiter was pleasant, but was lost for most of the meal as I rec'd my glass of wine right before I took the last bite of my meal. But overall a good meal and we will return and give all a 2nd chance.

    We have been here many times and we love coming here with friends. Each entree is ala carte, so you order the salad, etc. separately. we love the mozzeralla cheese bread and always start with that. This time we had cheese ravioli, chicken stuffed with ham, seafood linguini. They were all amazing. Made it to derrerst this time, first time ever. Easy dining for group, several children in restaurant as well so very family friendly. It can be a bit loud depending on which room you are in, they each have a different theme. Great casual dining!

    It was our first time dining at any Buca, and we were overall pleased. Service was good, our hostess very friendly. For those unfamiliar, make sure you understand that they have few single-portion servings. Appetizers and entrees come in a small size (serves 2-4) and large (service 4-8). Therefore, it's most convenient for larger groups that plan to split their orders. For just me and my wife, it was a bit too much food, and we were a little bothered that we ordered just the one entree between us. If you can deal with this, go there. Food was delicious.

    We wanted more personable service and our waiter was way too busy. I felt rushed through our dinner...like a hurry up and get out kind of vibe. It was my friend's birthday and they asked if we wanted to order dessert but didn't provide a free Sunday or anything for her like most places. The chicken we ordered was amazing! That I would go there for again and again. My daughter got chicken parm and the chicken was a rock and was very quickly resolved and she was brought a new piece of chicken and was delicious. I still think that for 1 appetizer, 1 entrée with 1 side, 1 kids meal and 4 total alcoholic beverages... $112 is a little high. Especially with no leftovers or birthday dessert.

    I love this place! It's always crowded and noisy, but the food is very tasty.....albeit expensive. There's enough going on that it's fun. I wouldn't recommend it unless you like a bustling atmosphere. Service was good.........food was tasty and hot. I love their Caesar Salad. I'm a cook, and I don't like to shell money out for tasteless food.......this place is worth the money.

    We had a large party of 40 in town for a soccer tournament. They were able to seat our group all in one room, kids at one table, adults at the other. Trey and his team were very friendly and efficient and did an excellent job keeping the bill straight (sorry for all the separate checks). We had the mussles, caprese, salmon and Alfredo pasta. All were excellent. We would definitely visit here again! Wish they had a Buco in South Carolina!

    Extremely overpriced. Cost $100 for my husband and I plus 1 kids meal. Portions were not significantly larger than other restaurants to warrant the exorbitant price tags. The garlic bread was dry and tasted of burnt garlic powder. Our salad tasted dirty. The baked ziti was bland and very dry. Should have gone to Maggiano's for half the price and double the food! This was our first and last visit to Bucca! Can't believe we had a $50 gift card and a $10 off coupon and it still cost us $40, and all we left the restaurant with was a tiny bit of ziti.

    My wife and I have been going to Buca for over 10 years, usually about 2-3 times a year. The food is always good, and we usually have plenty to take home because we like to order several dishes because we have so many favorites. The service is always good as well, but during our last visit it was exceptional . Our server was helpful, friendly, and we never lacked for anything even though she was busy serving a lot of tables at once in the room we were seated in. All in all, another terrific time was had at Buca.

    Vickie (aka Victoria) took great care of us, timing our take-out order so it wouldn't sit as we enjoyed our dinner. I appreciate the home-spun, slightly offbeat quality of the humorous decor. Buca takes their food and service seriously- but not much else.

    Went to Buca -Pineville NC for birthday. 6-21-14 Ordered spaghetti & meatballs, our usual. Also ordered 3 meatballs to go.(would not have ordered if we knew what they were going to be like) Spaghetti was not drained properly, creating a watery mess in the bottom of the dish. Sauce was also thin and watery. Meatballs were dry and loaded with basil. Sliced garlic in meatballs was very noticeably absent. We never send food back due to the possibility of "kitchen revenge" but would have liked to. On the upside the side salad and house bread were wonderful. Will attribute this to just a bad night, but if next visit is similar, will not return.

    We made a reservation a few days ahead of time, arrived a bit early and were seated right away even though 2 members of our party were not there yet. We were waited on quickly, drink orders taken and while we were waiting, another waiter/manager came to our table to make sure we were being taken care of. Food was enjoyed by all 4 of us and the experience was great. We left with a satisfied feeling. We also had a coupon we had receivd by email and were able to use it for our meal.

    I have eaten at Buca once before at the. My first experience was outstanding. This time I was eating from the gluten free menu. I ordered a veal dish with artichokes. The veal was tough,dry & had the taste & texture of cardboard. Since there was no GF pasta the veal was all I had for my meal with the exception of the garden salad. The others at our table had tasty dishes. I think Buca could be a little more creative with their GF options. I ordered a cappuccino for an after dinner drink & was told the machine was out of order. Our server was attentive & did a good job of attending to the needs of our family - 4 kids & 4 adults. My family from VA will be here later this month, I was going to take them to Buca but now I am reconsidering.
