Prices have become excessive. Used to be able to have a "Family Style" meal for much less.

Made our reservation on open table. Only had to wait a couple minutes to be seated after arriving, which sometimes we have to wait awhile even when we do reserve. They seated us next to a couple pretty big parties which was kind of a pain because we were a party of 4 and it was sometimes hard to hear each other talking or even get out of the table to use the restroom because there seemed to always be a thing of food blocking our exit. Food was pretty good except the ravioli could of used a little more cheese inside, it was pretty lacking and could barely taste the cheese. I thought there was a little too much meat sauce, probably trying to hide the fact of little cheese. There also seemed to be a lot of water at the bottom? Maybe they didn’t let the pasta properly drain? The shells were excellent as always and I didn’t have a chance to try the shrimp Florentine because after eating all the bread that comes first I got kinda full, but we brought it home and planning to eat as leftovers.

Everything was good, very noisy though. Plenty of food to take home after so that balanced the cost out a little.

Head's up, this is family style dining. If you're not familiar with "strategic ordering" to make sure you get a taste of the things that you like, you sure will after dining here. The small portion of all menu option is enough to feed three people. If you go with a date and you both want different things, you'll be taking a ton of food home. The nice thing is that if you have three or more people and can agree on what to get, it can be an inexpensive night out on a per person basis. The food is pretty good and we'll have to head back to taste the meatballs.

It sounds like a great idea, but you have to order such large entrees that you can't try very many items. Our party of 4 ordered 3 entrees and should have ordered only 2 smalls. We took home enough food for two more dinners for 4!! The birthday colossal sundae is advertised in a large martini glass and looks AWESOME. We were celebrating a special birthday and ours was served in a stupid bowl - far from awesome. Presentation is everything and this was a huge disappointment! The place needs a good cleaning from top to bottom.

The value just isn’t there anymore unless you cater an event with actual “family style”
The manager adjusted our bill because they weren’t offering a new promo that is advertised but still showing the deal on the table tops in the restaurant

was unaware of family style format -- it is not a place for two people to go for a light dinner. We chose salad and appetizer still expensive. Nice recognition for a birthday though

Our server was horrible. Didn't check up on us, filled one water when all 4 needed to be filled, brought 2 sangria glasses for 4 adults, left plates and bowls all over the table when they needed cleared, dumped entrees on table when appetizers weren't even 1/2 done, Salad was over-seasoned and soggy from dressing, brought forks for an ice-cream dessert. I will not be returning and nor will the other 3 adults at the table.

Buca is one of my favorite places. Can get reservations easily, even on Holiday. Yesterday was more disappointing. Food exceptional as always. Odd things, we got no bread, the booth seat had a huge rip which was covered with bright red duct tape. There were small rips in carpet. We were seated in a roomlet next to a big party of about 20. They weren't terribly loud, but with that many people the laughing was a small problem at times. But why seat us in a room with such big group? We walked past many empty tables to get there. In hindsight I should have spoken up and ask to move.
We ordered the large Lasagne (clearly best anywhere) of course there was left overs. She asked if we wanted doggie bag, yes of course. She comes back with 5 small round containers about the size of desert plates, for lasagna? We did our best to cut into smaller portions to fit, we have always gotten it in a loaf of bread style, which was boxed in the kitchen for us. These small things just tore up the left over, and we had to ask for lids. But food was excellent, and server nice.
I just wish my experience wasn't bad and I can just shake it off

My family, party of nine, dined at 5 pm on New Years Eve. The food was excellent, as usual, but the front desk was completely disorganized. We had a 5pm reservation, but had to wait almost 30 minutes for a table which was very upsetting with three small children in our party. We weren’t the only ones either. The lobby was extremely crowded with others on the same situation and the gentleman directing the wait staff to seat people seemed completely disorganized. Buca will remain a go to place for our family, but I was really disappointed in the service this time. Not typical to what we normally experience at this location.

We had a reservation but still had to wait 10-15 minutes for our table. When we got to our table, the menu was only to share food. We had to share one meal with 3 people. Not what we expected at all and not everything on the regular menu was available. Cups were plastic, paper napkins and a plastic tablecloth. Our seat had a big tear in it. Once we sat down it was clear they wanted us out as fast as possible to give the table to the next people waiting. Not going back there again.

Great restaurant for groups -- whether its family/friends or business groups. The smallest quantity one can order feeds 3-4 people -- I'm guessing the large portions easily feed 6-8. We had four people and order the small portions of the dishes, i.e., spaghetti and meatballs, a small pizza, and another small pasta dish. We had enough leftovers for two full meals. The Italian dishes are delicious and fall into the category of "comfort food." Defintely a fun place to go with a group!

We always love this place. We had our two year old twin granddaughters there. We started bringing them at 3 months It is a fabulous place to introduce children to restaurant dining. The staff just go overboard helping out. Good food, good prices, great service, very fun. The girls went crazy for the raspberry gelato cones

Seating area was extremely warm, wait staff was sweating. Food was good and came rather quick. Server was very distracted and we had to ask for refills multiple times before he got everyone a drink. We waited long then our reservation time. A few if the cooks in the back were also sweating. This was worst experience I have had a this chain. Go to the one in Scottsdale!

Bad experience, went for my birthday and waiter was no where to be found most of the time while we where dinning. He forgot our waters and I had to get the attention of a manager to bring us waters. After we had bread and salad. It was not a great experience this time.

The drinks we ordered were wrong and needed to go back. The fried foods we ordered were soggy. The salad we ordered was made incorrectly. The server was great but the manager didn't seem to care that we made it a point to let him know how many problems we had in the little time we were there.
