The food is always good. The service, well it’s hit or miss. We had a very nice waiter that just didn’t pay attention to us. He had to be asked to refill water, we had to ask for bread and I had to go find the vinegar and oil for the table. Worst service I’ve ever had. Good thing the food is delicious.

Everything was fine but our server seemed like she could not have cared less. Very phone and insincere. Also, she was lazy in her humor and overall effort. Not a mean spirited server but very fake.

Worst meal ever! Salad was soggy & drenched in dressing and had more tomatoes & onions than lettuce; lasagna was bland & flavorless ; tiramisu was a f4ozen block - we sent it back! The bar tender either suffusing the internet or on social media the 3ntire time we were there. We should have known something was going on when there were only 10 cars in the parking lot of a Friday night at 7:30 - totally disappointing!!

The wait staff did a terrific job and checked back frequently.
It was a real time saver in not having to prepare and cleanup a holiday meal.

Bread — not good.

Sausage & Peppers — not at all like the photo on the web site. Unlike the photo we got very little peppers. The sausage was quite ordinary for that dish.

Chicken — ok.

Garlic mashed potatoes — good.

Odd — no pasta available as a side dish.

Coffee — EXCELLENT!

Service — really good.

We had a reservation for 7PM and actually checked in a little early. We were not seated at a table until 7:20. When we were finally seated there were several open tables that had not been cleared even though there were several people waiting for tables and being told it was a 30 minute wait. It was obvious they were very short staffed. Several tables remained dirty as we sat there. Once seated we did get our drinks and food fast.

Overall very good. Buca has been consistently good over the years. There had been times when service was lacking but food has always been good.
I appreciate that they ditched the Malt-shop-bee-bop music. None is better than that especially for an Italian specialty restaurant.
They recently revamped their menu and we tried the Shrimp Parmigiana...was excellent. But it does not come with spaghetti; OK...no big deal so we ordered a side of Spaghetti. Was told they took that off the menu! Huh? Side orders of pasta off the menu in an Italian Restaurant? Taking string beans or brussel sprouts off the menu I can agree with. But a staple like spaghetti? Makes no sense. So we ordered a kids size portion and that worked out OK. That was at the suggestion of the waiter so I think he had received coaching from management for instances like this.

Buca is our go-to for southern Italian food. The incentive coupons make it an excellent value. I was glad that they nixed the malt-shop music even though it was a bit noisy when we were there.
Food took a longer than anticipated time to arrive but it was good.

The service has gone down hill lately. I thought it was going to go better this time. They actually checked me in under my reservation which many times they have not but that was the only thing that went right. (except the fact that the food is always good) They didn't bring us any bread and our main food arrived before the salad. We had to ask for bread and then they didn't give us oil for our bread. They forgot to bring my daughters food and we had to ask them for her food. Then they didn't apply my coupon and I had to mention that to them. I will definately be taking a break from Buca for a while.

I chose Buca to enjoy a Valentines meal with my wife and two daughters. This ended up being a stressful event because we saw many customers come and go and get serviced by our waitress before us. It also took over an hour to get our food while other tables obtained speedy service. Once we got our food everything was good, but at this point I'm not sure we will go back to Buca again because it wasn't fun. Kind of ruined our Valentines night out. Service used to be good at Buca. We got one free dessert, but quite honestly a manager should have visited us and comped the entire dinner based on the disappointing service.

Food. Service. Value. All excellent. But something needs to be done with the new music selections. Sock-hop-malt-shop oldies? Really bad. Whats up with that? Get back to Lou Monte and Dean Martin please.

We hadn't been to a Buca in many years and won't be again for many more. Food was okay. Server was friendly but just not very good. He meant well. Slow to bring the bread- took several requests. Had to ask for drink refills. Never did check on if we liked our food (which took 40 minutes to get). The tables are too close together and to close to the aisle so was bumped by people when they walked by. Too many other better choices to go here.
