Best Italian Food in Toronto. Hands down
Thanks for the birthday take home pasta!
Eggplant tower= delicious
Tortellini= flavour burst
Squash= I loved it, husband not a fan but it’s squash...
Service was great too. I look forward to going back.
Food was amazing. Seating system was strange. We had to ask to move to an optimal seat. Besides that, the evening was perfect, the service is great.
Overall experience from being greeted to table very good
Waiter was not generally informative more gave a feeling of being obligated to answer questions as if too say you really dont understand that!
I asked for & received a non menu pasta dish which was excellent to which I went to kitchen area & personally acknowledged the chef for his preparation
I do not expect to be treated in a demeaning manner ....... I felt I was & therefore would not return there is choice!
The food is delicious, but the pasta portions are incredibly small. Got three different cheeses with the garlic knots to start and then two pastas to split with my girlfriend. Had a couple of drinks each and still spent $190. Went home hungry.
This is the best dining experience i have had hands down in my entire life. Food was amazing and tasty! The chefs here know exactly what they are doing. Service was amazing too! Went with my wife for our anniversary and will continue to go every year! Thank you Buca team for the amazing dining experience!
We always have high expectations...never disappointed. On a cold February nite we fall into the warmth that is Buca. Our server Chelsea expertly guided us through the vast array of choices. I always try to find something that I might not get anywhere else. I had the pasta dish with lamb made with pasta hand made from Italy. Incredible!! My wife’s branzino was done to perfection. Why would we go anywhere else?
Always be the favourite Italian Restaurant in Toronto. There are picky guests come and go. Wish the restaurant can deal with them with better skills, because we want the service, but the waiter was stacked with the other picky customer for a very long time. When one of the waitresses separate the pasta I told her that was enough for me, but she still keeping giving me that is really hilarious:)
The food was amazing and so was the wine. Our server was quite pushy in trying to get us to order more food and not taking no for an answer, it got uncomfortable.
We had the GNOCCHI RIPIENI, It was good but definitively not worth $55. We were quite disappointed.
Excellent food and service. The atmosphere was weird and mismatched. Very loud and too well lit for their plain painted walls. Could use some interior design improvements to match the space with the quality of food and booze.
Ok food, very cold absent service. Don’t believe the hype.
Waiter didn't know much about the wine list. Unfortunately the Sommelier was not working that night either.
Buca does not disappoint. I too often have been let down when eating Italian in this city. Buca is Italian done right. Every dish was impeccable. Even the bread knots and warmed olives to nosh on as a start were memorable. We shared throughout the night and I highly recommend this method. We had the most incredible truffle cheese stuffed gnocchi, it literally melted in your mouth. We also enjoyed very tasty scallops and dandelion side as our main. What blew me away was the a very different take on Tiramisu dessert that I might just have to go back for. Added touch was a take away box of fresh pasta delivered by a very attentive manager who noticed it was a birthday dinner. Even without bday dinner, packaged amaretti cookies are sweet gesture. Top points for service throughout: our server was genuinely pleasant and checked in at all the right moments. The food runners were smiling and engaged too which stood out. The only thing I would share is that this is a very vibrant, loud space...So if you are looking for a quiet dining experience you should be aware. Food however is very much worth having to speak loudly over to your fellow diner(s) in my opinion.
Always love coming to Buca. One of my Toronto favourites.
Love the pizza! Best in the city! And the tiramisu was delicious ...
Absolutely great - service and food spectacular. A little pricey but worth every penny - have been to more expensive places but nowhere near the quality and great service
