I went expecting more for the food. I had the black cod and tiramisu for dessert. The place is very well decorated but extremely noisy.
Never disappoints. Gets better each time. Incredible food and best service yet.
Great food and great selection of wine, good place for Italian seafood, great service, but, it is not for everyday.. It could have been been better, the lighting could have been better, no background dining music, .. it is a straight forward a dining experience. but, you would love the food and they way the chef selected the wine.
I would visit again for sure
Lack luster service and overrated. Lobster pasta was a disappointment, too soupy with very little lobster. Pasta wasn’t appropriate for the type of sauce. Butternut squash gnocchi akin to pumpkin pie in seasoning and sweetness. Truffles on top were tasteless and made no sense. Waiter was inattentive and tables that arrived after us received food before us. If you’re looking to spend a lot of money on overrated food and experience then this is the place for you otherwise invest your money in a better overall experience and food at a place like Canoe. This Italian restaurant is trying too hard and doesn’t deliver on the upscale experience.
Great food and great service.
Great food just really small portions, coffee not really hot
Went with a friend for his birthday, and the staff was really welcoming and sweet. Definitely would recommend!
Great food and service was fantastic.
Went for a birthday and at the end they came by to wish a happy birthday and even presented us with a gift.
Price point was a bit high but the service and quality makes up for it.
Definitely a special occasion spot.
Actually this was my first time going to Bucca after I heard about it over social media, honestly it is not worrying, food was cold and taste very bad, and above all of that we had He worst server u can ever ask for, First of all we had to tell him 6 times that we are ready to order, he totally ignored me and my friend and when I said it looks like he has hearing issues, he replied that he will come back to take out order, then we he brought some bread and oil and because u r in an Italian cuisine u ask for balsamic vinegar his reply was, our balsamic is very very very Canadian expensive and I have to charge u, he brought those saucer and he said if I have to fill it till 1/3 I have to charge u $8, and we were speechless, again we order d pizza and after he brought we asked to add some black truffle, he replied that truffle is very expensive and that he will charge us, this is where I lost my mind and I told him, we r in a fancy restaurant not in a Burger King, we know what we have to pay, so do ur work without annoying us with reminding us with each dish price, so he left and sent another server who was really amazing, but really not worrying, there r other better places... anf by the way he went and spoke to his manager, they didn’t ask us about the food or the experience but I can tell u Tungus restaurant rating should not be more than 1/5 !!!!!
Everything is good except the deserts tiramisu. Too new style and not traditional. Too much chocolate !
A little difficult to find if you don't know where you are going. Good ambience and friendly service. Well worth a visit.
Excellent service, incredible food and drinks, and great value. Will be back again next time I'm in Toronto.
The pasta and octopus are awesome, also like the latte and cocktail here, nice dinner:)
Accommodating of Vegans - great food. Excellent wine.
Amazing birthday celebration at Buca.
Food was amazing. Every dining experience here is always amazing.
Hard to find; terrible atmosphere; carpaccio looked like puke on a plate. Obnoxious fellow at the table next to us shouted all night rendering me deaf in one ear.
We dine out often at the best places all over the world. We won’t come back here
We had table for two but large group beside us so noisy and hard to focus on own conversation.
Usually love Buca salads but neither of us enjoyed the grilled and bitter greens.
Pizza was lovely. Service good. Price point for salads high.
When it comes to Italian cuisine, my Nonna passed down her strict standards to my mom – and me. But strict standards doesn’t mean over the top luxury. The simplest recipes can be just as decadent as the rarest caviar, when prepared with diligence and passion.
You simply do not get your value for money at Bar Buca. The food is mediocre but the prices don’t match the mediocrity. You’re better off driving to Woodbridge for more authentic and creative Italian food for more economical prices.
Good but a little pricey
Fantastic as always. Thanks guys :)
友人と3人で金曜のディナーに伺いました。おしゃれだけれどフランクな雰囲気。店員さんも親切でフレンドリーでよい印象でした。おススメされるがままアペタイザーを2品（BRANZINOなるシーバス刺身をプロセッコとレモンで仕上げたもの、PAGNOTTAなるプチパン）を注文したら結構なボリュームで、そのあとの食事に若干支障が。おいしかったですが。POLIPO E VONGOLEというタコはマストです。ピッツァフンギ食べきれませんでしたが店員さんの方からテイクアウトしてくれたので遠慮なくそうさせてもらいました。気負いなく普通にテイクアウトができる文化がありがたいです。
Slow service from kitchen. Appetizers arrived 45 min after ordering, and only after prompting. Mains 45 min after that. It was not busy, so no excuse there. . Upsold on wine due to lack of availability. Staff not on point, attempting to fill sparkling water with tap water several times. Extremely disappointing given the cost of about $300 for light dinner for two. Won’t be back.
Food is excellent as always.
had a great meal as did my husband
the octopus dish was amazing.
very attentive service.
definitely would recomend it.
It is my opinion that the restaurant is just OK .
I do find there food is very over priced.
There is nothing In would rush back for.
Fantastic service, delicious food. For fans of culinary "experiences". Fabulous prawn carpaccio. Also pleasantly surprised by dessert options.
Good service. The salad I ordered was tasty but difficult to cut into manageable portions for eating.
This place is great. Fantastic food, Service and value.
Thank you to the staff at being so accommodating for our family today- my father in law and brother in law both have ulcerative colitis and the staff was extremely accommodating with the menu to ensure they both enjoyed their experience. Brunch was fantastic! Thanks so much!
Everything from the moment we stepped in to the moment we left was spectacular. Wait staff is very pleasant and well informed about everything on the menu and passionate about the food. We were lucky to sit in front of kitchen and watch the magic of the chefs. It worked like a well oiled machine. The food was out of this word especially the branzino! We also had the buratta pizza, the buccatini carbonara and the tiramisu. All of which were great. Pizza was super thin crust (close to New York style and was crunchy from tip to crust). The buccatini were perfectly al dente with the raw hens egg and smoked pork guancciale bringing giving the dish a really rich and smooth taste. The tiramisu was non-traditional but was one of the best I’ve had! As we were celebrating our anniversary the waiter also gave us a little care package of cacio e Pepe to make at home which I thought was very sweet! Overall fantastic experience.
fantastic meal and service! Bit of a splurge of an evening but so completely worth it :)
I wouldn't go for Sunday brunch. The carbonara pasta my husband ordered was good but I ordered a potato and egg plate called Frido and the potatos came burnt and 1 egg overcooked with not enough sauce. I think it was expensive, 22$ for this plate is not worth it.
This place should be the blueprint for all restaurants. Service and food is impeccable.
This might be my most favorite restaurant!!!
Buca never fails. The food, service and presentation are always outstanding.
Once you go once, you'll see why this restaurant is such a gem, and you'll be a regular.
The service was very slow. Our waiter didn’t come take our food order till we’ll over half an hour after we sat down, despite 2 requests for our order to be taken. By the time we ordered, a dish we wanted was apparently sold out. As well, we waisted a lot of time with our waiter or support staff trying to choose a good bottle of wine. After trying 4 or 5 different wines, we finally suggested they send the somalier over. I normally love Buca but they were not on their game this evening.
Food was very good -- service was exceptional -- try their take on a Vesper martini and you won't be disappointed.
Excellent food! Quality, flavour, unique all exceptional ... Would go back. Very $$
