  • "10 people ordered 7different dishes: spaghetti and meatballs and baked ziti were Good; sausage stuffed shells were GREAT; clams linguini - too many large pieces of onions, very little clams and no flavor; chicken Alfredo - very little chicken and tasteless; cheese ravioli w/meat sauce was all pasta and no cheese; penne pasta (?) w/chicken, artichoke hearts, dried tomatoes and peas was tasteless and very little chicken."

  • "The food was good with large dishes to share family style, chicken parm and veal saltimbocca excellent, stuffed shell a little to spicy. Food took too long once ordered, service was very slow and very slow to bring desserts. The waiter tried but could have used assistance for party of nine."

  • "6 adults arrived at 720 for 730 reservations, waiting room was full of people complaining about how long they were there. Hostess stand had 2 people that were avoiding eye contact with the crowd. Manager came out to let everyone know that there were no tables available and that they were working as best as they could. 8:00, we get called and walked back to a tiny booth next to the bar. There was a bigger booth behind us that wasn't cleaned yet but we were told it wasn't available. Bar area was crowded with people talking loudly. Food took another hour and came out in parts, tasted like it was thrown together, cream soda was spoilt, and oh yeah, the big booth remained empty. Not happy and will not be going back anytime soon"

  • "We go to Buca a few times a year when our family visits from New York. We especially like to go there to celebrate mom's birthday as the birthday song with candelabra is fun. Service is always great as is the food."

  • "the food is always good. they are very friendly. As our reservation was somehow screwed up, they gave us a free appetizer and allowed us to pick anything on the menu. The portions even half portions are huge. This is a favorite place to take our grandchildren, they enjoy the food, and they eat, which with small children is always a plus."

  • "The food was very good, however it is a little overpriced. A $90.00 check for 2 pasta's and 1 salad is a little much. We had 2 iced teas and 1mountain due. No alcohol."

  • "I made reservations for 8:15 PM on Valentine's day and did not get seated until almost 9. The hostess had no idea how to do her job. We arrived at 8 Pm and were unable to check in until 8:25. We asked one of the staff if he could check us in with our reservation. His name was Jordan and he stated that he would. 30 minutes later he came by and stated he forgot, shrugged his shoulders and just walked away. Once we were seated our waiter did an alright job with service. We both ordered pasta and it came fairly quick. It was very bland and had very little sauce. The amount of food they give can feed an army if that army does not care about taste. Needless to say myself and my girlfriend left very disappointed. We will never return."

  • "I love Buca's food especially the sauce. But the location in Wellington has gone from fair to worse. The spaghetti came out cold, along with the eggplant. The outside of the restaurant has all dead plants. Xmas day was an absolute disaster. Will no longer go to this Buca location."

  • "I had an amazing time celebrating my mom's birthday here. I received my request to have the table in the kitchen. Service was excellent. Everyone stopped by when walking passed to make sure we were enjoying our time. The food was fantastic. It was awesome to have the chef ask us how it was from across the kitchen. We got dinner and a show. An unforgettable experience."

  • "We occasionally go to this restaurant when we are in the mood for family-style dining and don't want to drive too far. I have found a couple of entrees that are prepared well enough that when we go, I know what to order. Generally, I find their food extremely bland. Thanksgiving we went with family. The food was indeed plentiful, and really, turkey isn't expected to be flavorful, so it was fine. However, the bartender did not know how to make a simple Cape Cod and I doubt the vodka used was really Grey Goose. Food was cold when served. The server tried very hard, but was clearly overwhelmed. Rather than add to her frustration, we ate our food cold."

  • "I have eaten at this Resturant before and have been pleased.....not this time. My son chose this Resturant for his last dinner before returning to the Navy and we were very disappointed. They didn't have two items that we wanted to order and the wait staff was lacking in attention. The items that we did order we're lacking in flavor. It will be a long time, if ever, before we try them again."

  • "Enjoyed the food, & the large portions were enough for a 2nd meal the next day. Maybe it was because it was New Years Eve, but the restaurant was very noisy, & the server would disappear for extended periods of time."

  • "Think they were understaffed that evening but that shouldn't be an excuse. After we sat down we waited over ten minutes for drinks. The food was good but not amazing. Went the whole meal without a beverage refill, as our waiter disappeared."
    Dined on 12/26/2013
  • "The greet staff started the evening off by lying to me regarding the cleaning up of the table. I finally walked back to see for myself that no one had touched the previous diners remains. I was in a party of 10 with several children and it just made for a long and angry night. I had ordered "3"meatballs as part of one of many side dishes and they came and delivered only "1" saying they ran out of them! This was at 8pm! We had ordered a salad and they brought it out after the hot food? I will never step foot in this restaurant and will only recommend the same to others who ask me for my opinion."
    Dined on 12/26/2013
  • "We had a reservation and we were there on time, but they took care of us 15 minutes later. Service was very poor. We asked for bread and they did bring it to the table when we were almost done with dinner. The first entree came before the appetizer and then the second entree (chicken) was a small portion even though we asked for a big portion ( they brought other two pieces of chicken five minutes after), we had to ask another waiter for water. Asked for light sauce on the pizza and was full of sauce. Overall the service experience was not good! Waiter was nice and tried his best, but I think he had to many tables to attend. I think the problem was in the kitchen. Was not my first time there but maybe it will be my last."

  • "I normally like eating at Buca as the food is very good and consistent. Took a chance on Xmas Day and it was a mistake. They were obviously understaffed and the woman handling the reservations and walk ins was overwhelmed. She was trying to coordinate a computer reservation list and then handwriting the names of walk ins. Our server tried very hard but obviously was new and therefore also overwhelmed. We never even got bread. They initially said they were "out." Then the supervisor(?) came over and said it would be out in 5 minutes. Never came. Long wait for food & drink. I blame management for not providing the proper incentives to get their staff to work on a major holiday. If you can't don't open!"
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Christmas Day there were very few restaurants open and the restaurant was short staffed and there was a delay on being seated, a delay on getting the food, and we got the garlic bread after we finished eating and this is an additional cost just to have bread on the table. As far as most restaurant go they provide bread upon seating and it's free. Here we had to pay 6.95 for a bread basket."

We did not wait to be seated?Had reservation @ 645pm arrived at 620pm was told it would be at least 30 minutes, at 7p we were still waiting to be called. People that arrived after us were being seated??? So I checked with the hosted ( she was very overwhelmed) she said we would be next. We waited another 5 minutes & left. It was over crowded & chaotic."

  • "Christmas Eve 2013, we had a 7:30 reservation. We arrived approximately 7:15. The waiting area was crowded and very busy. The maitre'd/hostess told us that although we had a reservation, all of their tables were filled. While we were waiting we overheard a woman next to us loudly complaining that they'd been waiting two hours, saying to her family "what's the point of making a reservation if they cant keep it" We found out people with 7pm and earlier seating times were still waiting just to get a table. The seating hostess said meekly to the crowd "we have a delay because people at their tables are not leaving." With that, we DID leave. A holiday evening dinner crowd, you'd think the restaurant would know how to handle the occasion"

  • "Our server was great but the kitchen times on food were unbelievable. We waited 45 for our calamari appetizer didn't receive our garlic bread app until after our food came out which was another 40 mins after our appetizer. For the most part the food was tastey except for our chicken Alfredo which had no taste at all and was extremely bland. We had them take it off the bill. What really set me over the edge was that I ordered dessert and 1 they were out of tirimisu and 2 it took 20 mins for the other one to come out. Which by the way first after waiting so long he said they were out of then when I ordered something else when he came back with that item he said they found it. It still was not right as they forgot all the toppings to it."

  • "Had a 730reservation. Didn't get to sit until 810 and ordered right away. Food didn't come top 945. Lots of apologies by the managers but still didn't address the issue. We have been coming to this buca for years however the last several times has Really seen a downhill turn for the worse in terms of the wait for food. We won't be going here anymore."

  • "Management of reservations was extremely poor. The person answering the phone was not capable of giving simple directions like north or south and would put you on hold to get help, but never come back on the phone. Overall, not the best experience I have had."

  • "From the time I booked the group reservation and pre-selected menu, I received great service from staff. Leo (manager) and Amanda (server) were attentive and courteous. My guests thoroughly enjoyed their meals. The food was plentiful and delicious. I would recommend this restaurant for a any group dinner event."

  • "When we were first seated, nobody came to see us for well over 15 minutes. A waitress finally arrived and she was very unwelcoming and rushed us through our order. Turns out she was still training, and then we ended up with 3 waiters checking up on us, because they knew we were upset. The food was very much home made italian style with huge portions meant for sharing. I'm sure our experience was not everyone's experience, but if you have a big group wanting a big family style dinner, I would go here again but not otherwise."

Do not go to this restaurant on an occasion such as Thanksgiving since they obviously we're not staffed or prepared to serve people!"
