Great experience! The burrata pizza lives up to its hype. We also had the lobster pasta which was great too. The octopus and squid ink pasta was recommended and we thought it was ok. Probably won’t order that last one again. Our waiter was very kind and attentive. Overall very happy with the night!
Food was not very good. Girlfriend didn't enjoy the food, we notified them, they replaced it with some basic salad. Yet they still charged us for the plate that we didn't eat. Manager never came by to check up on us or apologize, which is customary. The server was nice and professional though, it wasn't her fault.
Place was very noisy as well.
Parking is very expensive, staff had no idea about any of the details.
Never coming back or recommending this to anyone
Great food and service. Enjoyed and will return for more.
Congratulations to the team.
Unforgettable tasting memory.
The ambiance, and noise and the taking orders quick approach bothers a bit, but the food per se compensates it.
Best Pasta dishes in town! Had the Salumi de Mer taster (5 fish) which was quite a nice appetizer
A very loud place. We could not hear each other. The food was okay. The prices were high.
I can never get enough of the branzino crudo. Thanks to Gabriel for setting aside two orders of it, in advance.
They were the last two portions left by the time our reso came at 930pm, so I’m glad I called ahead to pre-order.
Great service from our waitress too.
Our favorite restaurant in Toronto
Seriously good food.
Seriously good service.
Excellent food and service but quite pricey
We had a great lunch on Saturday. These people know their way around fish. Raw oyster presentation was beautiful. Very classy and unusual. A raw whole fish branzino crudo was sliced table side next to ours. Looked spectacular but my feeling is that it is a dish to share with others, 4 people? Would love to try it. We had a scrambled egg dish with shaved summer truffles. Delicious and generous. We also split a flatbread pizza which was light and had nice flavors. We saw a pasta dish walk by that looked great. Switched another reservation for dinner Monday so we could go back. Not inexpensive but they know how to impress.
Great service, but so loud
We shared a salt and herb crusted fish which was delicious. However, $140 for 800 grams seems high, and it included nothing else.
Similarly, the Italian Rose we had was superb, but not at $100 per bottle.
After a very positive first experience at Buca several years ago, I was very disappointed this time around. Portions are tiny and the dishes are extremely expensive but lacking complexity and strong flavour. The burrata pizza was the best thing we got this time around, was very underwhelmed by the risotto (tiny portion, could only taste the saffron and hardly any other content), and the tonnarelli (hardly any flavour and minimal portion of octopus). The service was fine but nothing spectacular or friendly, which is what you'd expect for a meal of this price and reputation. Wine list was very restrictive. Overall there are much better restaurants to get real bold Italian flavour, real portions and a more welcoming experience.
Everything was wonderful. Couldn’t have been a better anniversary dinner.
I did not like the menu to begin with. Every pasta dish had fish/seafood and one person in our party does not eat fish. I felt the food was good but very over priced. I do not mind spending the money but it was not worth it. Pasta for 38.00/48.00? Also not enough salads and meat or fish entrees. I was disappointed overall.
The food and the service was wonderful.
We will be coming back!!!
Wonderfull food, great service, lovely setting; however, far too noisy. Something needs to be done with acoustics———I had to move tables as it was impossible to have a normal conversation. Hopefully management can rectify this problem
Superb, particularly with the waiter we got. He was the icing on the cake of our whole experience.
Took me back to Italy with its authenticity
Always very noisy there. Food goos
Awesome foods and hospitality
I had a dinner for my birthday.
Everything was perfect.
Brunch was amazing.
The food was fresh and perfect.
The service was under attentive. Felt like either they were under staffed or our server was forgetful.
Excellent brunch, thanks to the team at Buca! The service was very professional and excellent! Food was delicious. The sauces on our dishes were amazing! We would definitely return! Thank you!
The best Burrata pizza in town and the Branzino crudo is to die for. Love the gnocco frito as well. Service is so good, the whole eating experience is kicked up a notch. Definitely one of my favorites in Toronto.
A bit too noisy. Our dessert wasn’t very good. Traditional tiramisu would have been better. Pizza was fantastic.
Second visit to Buca and it was as good as I remembered it. Superb food, excellent service, beautiful restaurant.
Quite an experience. Excellent food and service.
It’s a perfect place for a nice family dinner. We really enjoyed.
Amazing pizza. Great service.
Buca ceases to amaze me. From the top notch service to the quality of the food. Definitely worth every penny. Thanks for a lovely lunch as always.
amazing place. great food. This is not your americanized italian place, true italian place with modern flare. Great wine lists all Italians.
Great! Fabulous breakfast options. Eggs Benedict were fabulous.
Unreal meal, amazing service and great hospitality!
Mala decoración , comida muy escasa y no de muy buen sabor . Precio muy alto para poca calidad
Excellent food. Lobster angel hair pasta, octopus, and branzino carpaccio were exceptional.
Thanks so much for making our night extra special. The DIY pasta was an incredible cherry on top!
The food was good but nothing great, very average pasta, and way over priced. Tiny food portions as well. Great atmosphere however and the service was very good. Would rather Terroni or Cibo any day over this place.
Very expensive and left hungry. The “caprese” salad was a very thinly sliced tomato w foam (nothing close to the density of cheese). They don’t bring complimentary bread and the fish, while delicious, is expensive and has no accompaniments. The pizza was excellent but also very pricey. If you have a small appetite and a big budget then I highly recommend this restaurant.
Branzino is hands down the best. The location is loud, but the food and device make it worth it.
