Buca is a great spot for a family feast. The family style options are very good, and the food is delicious. It’s such a cool place from a decor perspective, aside from the fact that they do have to dust a little better (it’s no small task with all of the tchotchkes and pictures.). Go for a large family sized salad before the meal and you’ll be enjoying the leftovers for 2 days afterwards!

This place has become my go to Italian restaurant. We keep on trying new dishes each time we go. We have never been dissapointed. Staff are always friendly and responsive.

Our only critique this trip is that the lasagna, which is very good and recommended, could use another layer of pasta.

Wonderful!!!! The only hold up was when we arrived the hostess had us wait rather than seat us right away. We had reservations to avoid the wait.

Other than the hostess, everything was WONDERFUL!

Service we received was top notch. It was a long wait for the food to be served. The food on the other hand was less than stellar. It was my Wife's Birthday celebration and her food came out cold. The Brussels Sprout side dish was overdone and very salty. This was the second time dining at the establishment and both times we have experienced cold items.

Waitress at bar was very attentive even though she was busy. Food was good.

Only complaint is that staff stands outside front door in uniform smoking cigarettes- that's gross!

Other than that we also loved a roasted lemon thyme chicken dish you used to have but discontinued - So now we stick mainly to salads .... don't care for the lemony chicken breasts that replaced it , kind of rubbery- I liked the great taste of roasted chicken.

This is my first time at this particular Buca, and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious, the drink was delicious (Sangria), and the service was very good. The prices are a bit on the steep side, but well worth it for a special occasion, or just a date night with your honey. Plus we had a coupon and a gift card so that helped! We look forward to returning!

Made a reservation online, and was taken to our table with 10 minutes of checking in. This was our first visit, and the atmosphere was both fun and homey. Our server Nina took a drink order right away, returned with drinks - and then left us unattended for 45 minutes! We didn’t even place our order.

When we finally got her attention, she admitted she forgot about us. We finally ordered, and our appetizers arrived quickly. The bruschetta was very good, and is served in a neat glass. We also ordered cheeses garlic bread, but were served a pizza. Nina took the pizza from us (after it was on the table for a good 5-7 minutes) and then brought us the garlic bread (which was also very good).

Our entrees were delicious, but there was also a great deal of confusion over the bill. Dinner took over 3 hours. Thankfully, we weren’t in a hurry and took the opportunity to chat with friends. But there was little in a way of apology.

The food and atmosphere were excellent, but service was terrible (just about non-existent). We will try eating there again, hopefully with better results.

Service is great and the staff for the most part are very friendly!

Overall very good - the waiter brought the wrong drink to the table after the second order and the Brussel sprouts were over cooked/ slightly burnt. Nothing too bad but that is why I did not rate with 5 stars.

Good food with large family style portions. Pasta was not over cooked. Chicken was excellent. Servers was very professional, but they could use more help as it took awhile to get seated even with reservations. Overall a positive experience which will have us returning to try other dishes.

The food was delicious. The service was very poor. Spent over 20 minutes trying to get more water from our nonexistent waitress. So while the food was delicious, having nothing to accompany it beverage wise was disappointing. Not the best experience for our first time at this restaurant.

This is the third time we've been to this location and we've had a great experience very time. The family style courses offer a good opportunity to try several items on the menu. Our last visit was on Mother's Day. I had made reservations through Open Table and forgot to change the number as I'm usually just making reservations for my wife and I. This time, both of our parents were joining and we found out as we arrived that we only had reservations for 2, not 6. Even on an extremely busy evening, the staff made accommodations and found a way to seat us after only a half hour. We were so appreciative of their efforts, even though it was my mistake, which had to be difficult on this particular day.

We had a great time. My son and granddaughter were visiting. My granddaughter has nut allergies and they were thorough in making sure she would not be exposed. She was not able to eat the bread because it was made off premises. The mixed salad was great. We added prociutto and gorganzola. Terrific! I had the salmon which was done perfectly. The manicotti and the rigatoni were very good. They've added a lunch menu which you can have small portions. This was perfect for us. We've been here before and they serve family style which always was too much; and its had to share when everyone wants something different. Service was friendly and attentive. I think everyone should try Buca again if you haven't been in a while.
