Food no taste, the bread was old very hard. We told the waitress and didn’t do anything she just said she was going to tell the kitchen. This place used to have the best food presentation service everything now is the opposite.

First time dining here. Unfortunately I most likely will not return. The food just didn’t make the mark Spaghetti and meatballs was tasteless. Sauce was more chopped tomatoes then marinara. Garlic bread just tasted like buttered bread. The best part was the mixed green salad. Sorry just didn’t impress me or my family. Service personnel were very nice on a positive note.

Even though that we mentioned on open table that we were celebrating a BDay our server was so out of it that not only he completely forgot about it but he even forgot to bring out food and desert on time and we thought just forgot about and leave. All and all It was a frustrating dinner.

Was rather impressed with the food and portion sizes. Haven’t been here in about 15 years. Would definitely return. Had a lot of food left over. We had the stuffed chicken and seafood pasta. Both were very good

Not very happy with today's visit. It was my son's birthday and he did NOT want to spend any more time in this place than we had to! I made a reservation using "Open Table" and specifically said it was for a birthday party. Not once was the birthday mentioned, we didn't get offered a dessert, and NO ONE sang! NEVER again will I come here for a birthday or special occasion.

The server was one of the LEAST enthusiastic, friendly person I have ever met. We weren't checked on once...no one offered to refill drinks. WE HAD TO ASK FOR THE COMPLIMENTARY BREAD!!!

Poor, poor, poor experience here!!! I would NOT recommend this location to anyone!!! This meal was pretty pricey!! I would think a little effort in making this experience worthwhile would have been nice!

Food was overpriced for the quality. Pizza was very salty and told the server. Server didn’t not do anything about it. He commented that I never try this pizza and it might be the bacon. Didn’t offer another pizza or refund. I wouldn’t come if I don’t have a gift card.

Busy restaurant! Reservations a must. Parking is dreadful during the busy hours.
Staff very nice. Server responsive. Food very good, plentiful. Sausage and peppers side had great peppers and onions. Actually wish there was more of the peppers and onions.
Most of the rest of the rigatoni, spaghetti and meatballs, garlic bread were good but not great. The gelato cones dessert was great.

We ordered a new dish, Spicy Orecchiette al Sugo, and it contained sausage but there were only about 9 or 10 very small pieces of sausage in the entire bowl. Also there were about the same amount of very thin pieces of mushrooms in it, and the pasta was very al dente. I did ask the server about the lack of the above and he said they put in a certain amount which in our opinion is a royal rip-off. The dish was 95% pasta and some sauce, quite a disappointment especially because the price was not inexpensive. Also we had to ask for bread which should have been brought to the table when we arrived. The chopped salad was good but it seemed to us that the portion size had been reduced since our last visit and the price had been raised. Overall we were disappointed with our dinner and will not return any time soon.

They forgot one of our entree's and when we asked about it twice they brought it out right before our check came. They ended packing it up and took the meal off of the bill , but I would have rather eaten with the test of my family. Poor service.

I've always loved Buca, however this dinner was bad. The service was horrible. Plus we brought our own cake and they said they charge $15.00 to cut the cake! Took 50 minutes to get our food, and all we got was a "Thanks for your patience." Had to send my son to look for our waiter since he seemed to be lost. Like I said, always enjoyed Buca, but this visit has given my family and I second thoughts about returning.

Service was really bad and food was over cooked for this visit.
We ordered our drinks first. While "we thought" drinks are getting ready, our waiter came back to take our orders. After placing our order, and 40-50 minutes passed by... still no drinks. still waiting... and Guess what, our food showed up but still no drinks. (not even a glass of water). Since our waiter was missing, we asked few other restaurant employee about our drinks (even just a glass of water) we just wanted something to drink. nope, everybody ignored us. and finally we saw our waiter, we flagged him down and asked about our drinks... He didn't apologize or anything... and showed up with our drinks when we were almost done with our meal. He had a nerve to ask if we wanted to order more drinks with a comment like "this time won't be long" (so he knew he screwed up, but didn't care). He also asked if we wanted to order deserts. At that point, we were so frustrated.. just wanted to get out of the restaurant. The noise level was high, little children screaming left and right... almost felt like we were in the chuck e cheeses. Pasta was over cooked so mushy and meat had a funky taste to it.
Overall, we went out for fun evening, but quickly turned disaster.

Celebrated 3 Birthdays this evening. Our evening started out a little rocky, had to wait an extra 20 mins because we added 1 more person to our reservation. However, our waitress MARINA was amazing, she is the true definition of service with a smile and made up for the extra 30 minute wait.

We loved the pasta carbonara, Brussels sprouts and the chicken saltimbocca. The pizza was ok. I must say their tiramisu used to be really good but now it's not. It's too thick and heavy and tiramisu custard is supposed to be light and very fluffy. Also I had very little or no coffee flavorSorry but I was born in Italy so this one doesn't even compare.
