Place was dead for Friday at lunch and waiter was incredibly slow. One person in our party got his pasta after everyone had finished their lunch. Bread was horrible. Salad was horrible. If you can’t make the salad because of the romaine recall, then say so. Won’t be back for lunch, ever. High cost was not worth it.

We have a tradition of going to Bucas every thanksgiving. This tradition started some 10 years ago. The food and consistency of service has been the same over all these years - it’s warm and cozy and really good food.

Enjoyable but, 7 adults and 2 under 6 with bill of $480 incl tip seems a little steep.

The place is a lot better than I remember from a couple of years ago. Thought I’d give it a try. Service was very good. Food was nice for a family style restaurant. Prices are a bit steep, (compared to higher end restaurants and other family style restaurants we’ve frequented) ... but the market will tell. Good place to celebrate!

It was Ok. We could not use the coupon we had. Small print said not on certain days/times. Lots of food but meatballs were bland. Sauce was just ok, not much flavor. Best part was the garlic bread.

When I privately asked our server, Brendan, to please split our tab foreight guests into two equal tickets, and apply the $15 coupon to each order, he thought it was a good idea to send the manager over and announce to our entire party that we couldn’t use two coupons on our $200 dinner bill. My friend and I, who were each going to pay for the other guests at the table, were mortified. Don’t you suppose, Brendan, that I spoke with you discreetly about this for a reason?! Both our server and his manager need a customer service lesson in discretion and how to handle particular situations. Fine that we couldn’t use the coupons, but probably not what we wanted to have announced in front of our guests. Duh Brendan.

Buca is way overpriced. Fortunately there are alwsys a dozen coupons floating around to bring them back to reality. I would prefer every-day rational pricing. The food and service was very good on this visit. Our 15 year old's birthday dessert was a scoop of ice cream which was disappointing.

We were mixed in with a family that had dysfunctional problems. Felt that we should have been in a trailer park. Food was a little noodle happy. Flavors were good. Waitress kept promising the moon but delivered nothing.

The food was okay, but we felt it was grossly overpriced for a group of 6. There was no pizzaz to the food - we felt we could have made the food at home and eaten for 1/4 of the price. Not even a free birthday dessert for the birthday girl... =(

Most of the food was good. They Mac and Cheese was a little disappointing. We dined in a Friday in Lent so our options were limited (and we knew that going in) so we expected more out of the Mac.

Very disappointed in the new direction Buca seems to be heading.
We hadn't been there in a while so when the email solicitation for $20 off hit my inbox we decided to go for a meal out. We pretty much knew what we wanted because of the many time we have been there in the past. First off they have a new menu with much, much higher prices! A small Frutti-di Mare will set you back $36! (It used to be $28). A large is an astronomical $50!! Holy crap! A 9 oz Chianti is now $12...used to be $9. And $18 for a Tiramisu dessert!
So here comes the bill and we give the waiter the $20 discount. He comes back and told us that we didn't hit the minimum $40 food purchase. We were short by $4. Thats where the Tiramisu comes in; we ordered that to offset the $4 deficit for food. Hindsight being what it is, we probably should of just got a small kids spaghetti to-go and be done with it. But dessert sounded better at the time.

I don't know what the justification is for the high prices; perhaps its due to the $15 minimum wage. Or perhaps they are ready to close it down and they want to milk as much cash out of the business before they shut the doors...I don't know. Whatever it is, they won't last much longer.

When you combine the much higher prices with the "Malt-Shop" music, I doubt we'll be back. And we have been Buca customers since the very beginning traveling from Apple Valley to 12th and Harmon.

Portion sizes have increased as have the prices. My wife and I used to be able to finish a small salad and entree, but no more. Small is either for two big and really hungry people or three hungry people. We will not be going back as a couple. We would go back with friends if we all could agree on the same meal. They do box leftovers nicely, though.

Not many places are open Christmas Day so we were limited on choice. This wouldn’t have been a pick for me but it turned out to be the best of available options near our house. I’m glad we were “forced” to choose Buca as we will for sure be back. We were all pleasantly surprised. Sara, our server was friendly and attentive. The mozzarella cheese and garlic cheese toast appetizers were excellent. We ordered four small size dishes to share and we enjoyed them all. We will be gong back to Buca because we want to not because it’s our only choice.

Very pleasant experience. The restaurant was fairly quiet and that was nice. The food was good but it would be nice to have additional options (limited menu for Xmas). A little pricy for pasta!

Traveling on Thanksgiving so we thought we would try Thanksgiving dinner here. Food was average (turkey was dry, but all other items were good. Waiter was great, but would have liked more noise for an Italian restaurant. Will be back to try the Italian food.

Overall the restaurant has awesome promise! Just a few minor steps in service could take it over the top, like sauce from the breads, or small appetizer options, where food portions are huge.

The food was so-so. We went for the pizza special they ran. Ordered the sausage/arugula pizza. It wasn't that great. But that won't stop us from going back. The biggest pet-peeve we have is the malt-shop music...its just not appropriate for an Italian themed restaurant.

Buca is a reliable place to take the family or a large group of friends. The food isn't a unique experience, but it is always reliable and appeals to most people. The staff is always friendly so we have never had a negative experience. The entree sharing is great for groups-or some tasty leftovers!
