We arrived for a 9:30 dinner reservation. We waited a long time to be greeted, then when she eventually deigned to acknowledge us, the greeter was rude stating “I can seat you but the kitchen closes at 10”! She had no interest in providing good customer service. It was clear they were short staffed and had been busy, but her demeanour was unacceptable.

Our server was delightful, despite being very busy and the food was excellent as always, however if this had been my first visit to Buca I certainly would not have returned!

The ambiance was ok. Our server was also the bartender who made a really great drink. She was good. The food was tasteless and over all a rip off. You had to doctor it up to make it edible. Very disappointed with the meal! Too expensive to taste this bad!

This restaurant used to be really good. This experience was not so good. We went on a Saturday evening and there were a few large groups dining. We ordered a few cocktails, they were good. We also ordered the Bruschetta , the bread was a mix of crunchy and stale. The restaurant felt overly humid, could that be why ? For dinner , we ordered lasagna and Shrimp Fra Diavolo. The lasagna was overcooked a d dry. There were several burned areas. The Shrimp Fra Diavlol was huge , and tasty. Our server was nice , but not attentive, I noticed he had multiple tables including a large group. Short staffed ? The server , did not check on our drinks or condition of our meal. The bill was really high , I felt for the experience. Over 140.00$ I’ve dined here many times , and always had excellent food and service. Was this just a miss ?

We were only 15 minutes late but the first words spoken to us were “we were a just about to cancel you.” Later when they called our name they had our last name wrong which must be why. Secondly, a large family group came into our area. They were celebrating a 28th birthday and had requested 3tables. The server would not let them sit together but insisted on socially distancing them. This was so uncomfortable as we were seated at one of the tables in the midst of it all. Thirdly, our food had very little sauce on the pasta dishes which has never happened before. I’m NOT a complainer...but this was not a good experience.

Absolutely the worst experience...from the quality and taste of the food to the service. All around awful. And when the manager came to remove the two entrees (a soggy and watered down chicken Parmesan with no flavor and an undercooked ravioli, both of which were almost completely full plates) he made a snarky comment about making sure the kitchen burned it next time. No apology for the awfulness of the food. They still charged us $70 for a salad (which was supposed to be included with a meal we didn’t get to eat) and fried mozzarella (which was almost as bland as the chicken Parmesan). will not be back and will be surprised if this restaurant lasts another 3 months.

I've always been a fan of Buca's, but I feel that their portions are getting smaller. The food is still pretty good(not as good as pre-covid though), but my daughter and I got a small order if calamari as an app. It is said to feed three people, not even close. And they charge 18.00. I feel they are going to price themselves right out of business.

We booked dinner last minute on a busy Sat nite. Lots of places had no tables or very late availability. Bucas was busy but had a dinnertime opening. Our evening was saved because the food and service was superb this nite. It was a b'day dinner for a rather finicky teenage g'daughter...but turned out she was very happy with the ambiance, the food, and the amounts...we had LOTS of leftovers next day.
Evening saved. Great job, Bucas! We'll be back.

Terrible service! They forgot two dinners and just shrugged it off. Sadly the dinners they forgot were the birthday person and wife’s. No apologies and no manager. On top of all of that they added a 20% tip. They had our tables split up 6 and 6. The “kid” table they refused to bring anything without us having to ask multiple times. Granted we should of asked for a manager but we tried to make the birthday as positive as possible. Jose was our server and his lack of caring was beyond concerning. We will never go back.

Service was just o.k. They were not at all busy, but the server rarely checked on us and had to be reminded of things we needed. The table was not clean when we were seated. I wiped it off myself and asked the server to replace the napkins/silverware that I opened to do so. She did not apologize and brought napkins, but did not pick up the trash. She also did not bring new silverware. I had to ask for an extra straw as well because one of the ones she gave us has a torn wrapper and it had been in her apron with her notepad and pens. We will not return to this location.

Table was wiped down seconds before we were trying to take our seats, even with a reservation. Server forgot our silverware. We had to go ask the bartender at the bar for utensils so we could eat our appetizer. Didn’t get new plates for our entree, we had to use the same plates we ate our appetizer on. My plate still had leftover sauce on it from our calamari dish, while eating our white sauce pasta entree. Drink refills took way too long. The food was good, but the service could’ve been better for this “fancy” of a restaurant. Especially for Valentine’s Day weekend.

No customers and still didn’t get service. We were handed our appetizer with no plates or silverware. No drinks for my kids. Had to stop another waitress to get utensils. The food was horrible and I am not usually one to care about price but for $120 I’d expect it to be better. I believe it is just this location as we’ve never had a problem in Greenwood.

Sadly, this is the 2nd time we have been to Buca and be one of two tables in the entire restaurant. Not sure how they survive! This time our server was less than enthusiastic about his job. I’m sure it’s boring when the place is empty, but he was terrible!! The food was not the old Buca quality either. The entire place has gone downhill. No reservations needed. We just made our last trip there!!
