    Overall good food. Usually have good service, but this time around we had a server who seemed to want to challenge himself by memorizing 3 tables worth of orders. Guess what? He screwed ours up twice then decided to bill us for each one of his screw ups. They need to make sure all servers are writing down orders to lessen the error rate.

    Dined on 3/1/2014
    As always, portions are ridiculously huge and I have yet to eat here without having to take something home. We were seated relatively close to our reservation time, but who can guess perfectly on a busy Saturday night? Our waiter was very polite and attentive. Food was amazing as always. Truthfully, my only complaint (which really isn't a complaint) is that their acoustics inside are such that if the place is packed, you can barely have conversation across the table. I would suggest some foam panels on the ceiling that could also be decorative to eat some of the sound. Other than that, this place is awesome and I would eat there three times a day if I thought I could get away with it. ;-)

    Dined on 3/1/2014
    I made reservation in advance for 8 people, yet when we got there our table was only set for 6 people. They host then decided to squeeze in 2 extra seats on an already crowded table. I requested her to check whether we could move to a bigger table, which she said she would do. She never returned with any feedback, so we ended up sitting at the crammed up table. The server suggested the house margaritas, but failed to mention that they are $15 each - which in my opinion is a bit overpriced. The food was good, but it's not cheap.

    Our family includes a grandmother, mother, father, 3 boys (15,12 and 8) and 2 girls (8 and 6). Buca is made for us - generous portions, options that fit many tastes from complex (prosciutto stuffed chicken) to basic (spaghetti and meat balls). The wait staff is invariably helpful and with fun attitudes. We always have a great time, and I highly recommend it.

    Well my experience in Bucca was great. I loved their food, service and in general everything! It was a great place to go for a beautiful romantic dinner or if you are on the mood for a group dinner. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and everyone I know. The only reason I didn't give the service 5 stars is because the waitress was new and she didn't know a lot of the questions I asked. If I had gotten a more experience waiter like one of the gentlemen like Michael which was one of the other waiters that took care of us at the end.This waiter did an outstanding job he made us feel like we were the only customers. Which is awesome!!! I will definitely will go back to this place again and request this waiter to wait on us again.

We received our food on time our drinks were very good. My kids had a great time as well. I will make plans to come back with a bunch of our friends.

    First time back to Buca in a couple of years and it seems the food quality has declined. Pizza was soggy, pasta and sauce was bland. The Chicken Saltimbocca was OK - actually better the next day. The experience was positive, a family birthday dinner, but the food was disappointing. Although I will always recommend the Tiramisu. Still it was not the Buca I remembered.

    MrRod
    Dined on 1/25/2014
    The service was excellent. The food was very good, but overpriced for pasta. The wine was too expensive for 6 oz "house" wine. I recommend Buca for lunch, portions are smaller (more normal) and the prices more resonable. I did not like the fact that entries are alacart and still overpriced. I recommend the salads, which can easily be shared.

    We had a great time sitting at the kitchen table. Great service; great food. Most of the servers stopped by our table to describe the dishes they were taking out to their clients- all of them looked delicious! The chefs were great, also ; describing some of the dishes they were creating. A little disappointed because we were told that the chef would surprise us with a taste of something, like a free meatball, which didn't happen. Ready to return and try some of the dishes that passed our table!!

    We had a lot of fun and our food was very good. Our waiter was quite forgetful-asking if we had decided on wine when we had already given him our order, never brought 2nd order of bread, didn't keep water glasses full. He seemed a little off. We did have a long wait for the first order of bread as well as entrees and dessert platter. The food was very good though.

    We got to celebrate my birthday with 13 others in the semi private room with the King's Chair...It all made for a great time. We chose an off night, so service was fantastic, there was absolute no rush as we stayed there pass closing time and for once the abundance of food was welcome..It was truly like a King's feast.

    It was our 29th Wedding Anniversary, and Buca was recommended as a nice place with good food and atmosphere. When we arrived, we were very warmly greeted by the front staff and promptly escorted to a great private booth at the end of the Bar. Our waiter was another story. The food was quite good, and the Bartender was great!

    My husband and I ate went here on new years eve and as always it was very crowded however we made reservations ahead of time so we didn't have to wait to be seated at all. The noise level has always been high but if you don't mind leaning into your dinner partner the restaurant really has a fun feel to it. The food is awesome if you like Italian. My husband and I had an appetizer, two drinks,two small entrées, and a dessert for a little less than a hundred bucks and we had lunch left over for the next day! Also if you love cheesecake this is the place to get a slice. It's a little pricey but totally worth it. Also word to the wise before you go sign up online and you will get a free small pasta which saves almost twenty bucks.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 12/31/2013
    I love Buca's but my experience in Dallas was not 5-star compared to my past experiences in Houston, TX, Pasadena, CA or Universal City, CA. The food was cold and the wait staff (although nice) seemed inexperienced and a little zoned out. Ambience was great as usual. I also requested more of a quieter table and we were sat next to 2 huge families of kids. There were plenty of 2-4 place tables in the corners or back that were not as noisy. I don't mind the noise level but this particular night I did not want to sit next to the largest tables in the restaurant. I will go back but will say something to management if the food comes out cold again. We also had the waiter redo the tea again. It was Raspberry and he watered it down.

    We managed to get a last-minute reservation for dinner on Christmas Day. And it was a good thing we did - by the time of our reservation, the wait was up to 90 minutes. We were seated promptly, and our meal was excellent. It was a bit loud, since our small room was full of people, but most everyone was in good spirits. The portions were huge, and everything was delicious. Thank you all for a great holiday meal!

    I visited on Christmas day and the place was packed. Fortunately I made online reservations in advance. We still waited a little more than ten minutes past the reserved time but that was nothing compared to the hour long wait for people showing up without reservations. This restaurant has a great atmosphere, the service from our waiter was superb!! And the food was delicious and substantial, enough to share and to pack left overs. I will definitively recommend this place and look forward to go back on a special occassion.

    Considering the crowd, they did well, food was a little disappointing after the huge UPSALE on everything we ordered we felt punished by mediocre food for not upgrading.

    We went here for a family birthday celebration, my husband and sister had never dined here before. After being seated by the hostess, we sat at our table for a good seven minutes before we were greeted by our server, who admitted to passing us by several times. He was prompt with our drinks, but forgot to put our appetizer order in until after we ordered our entree. So our appetizer came out right before our pizza. Everything was extremely over-priced.

    The meal was good, but our service was a little lackluster. The gentleman was attentive, but the small things add up. We were served bread, and when the main course started to come out to our table, we were not given new plates. We had to ask for those. We also had to ask for silverware. The dinner was good, but the server almost forgot our canolis. The only thing I'd recommend is clean up those service errors, and include a pie on the dessert menu for thanksgiving
