This place is great for big groups because the portion sizes are huge however all of the food was extremely underseasoned. Take with the manager and he said it was to keep the food at the medium level so most people could enjoy it. But in our group of 9 everyone thought it was extremely underseasoned, not the median by any means.

Dinner before a concert. Food was good and service was fine. Did not realize everything was ala cart and had to order pasta separately to go with meat dishes. Anti pasta chopped salad was excellent. Noise level made it hard to have a conversation.

Good Food. Great desserts. Only drawback is no individual dishes. Makes it difficult if everyone wants something different. Would definitely recommend.

We had a family dinner to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The restaurant is a little creepy being in the basement - dank and dark - the atmosphere made me feel that the place wasn't quite clean. The food was bad. The pasta was overcooked - lasagna & the fettuccine. The chicken marsala sauce was sweet, which was disgusting. The shrimp tasted really dirty (the fried appetizer plate - forgot what it's called). The salads were decent, gorgonzola & the chopped. We took home the chopped antipasto and because there was dressing already included, the lettuce ended up soggy. The brussel sprouts were good. The server was good. I told the manager the pasta was overcooked and all he said was "I'm sorry about that" and walked away.

Pretty disappointed. We’ve gone there ever Valentine’s Day for a while now. Food was cold on when delivered.. they took it back and microwaved it. Taste was subpar and we just ended up getting steak and shake afterwards because we couldn’t stomach it.

Went before a Blue Jackets game expecting good food and possibly some leftovers as I’ve heard the portions were large. Being a game day, the place was busy so it took some time for the server to get around to us. We both ordered the Chicken Parmigiana (being an Italian place I figured this would be a safe selection) but, boy, was I wrong. It tasted like warmed over cafeteria food and we decided to leave the leftovers behind.
There are plenty of options in the Arena District, I don’t plan on returning

The restaurant was packed and every table was seated. The wait staff was not able to manage their tables. We didn't get our drinks refilled, and even after asking the manager in addition to the waiter, we didn't get any additional butter. Most concerning was the reply that both the manager told another table and the waiter told us when we asked about being served bread. When customers at another table asked the manager about it and later we asked our waiter, they both explained that due to the heavy volume of customers, waiters would take the first bread that came up, which left those of us in the back of the basement without bread. When the customer at that table asked if any of their meal would be free since they had already finished eating, the manager replied that he would give them bread, but not a meal. The irony was that there WAS no bread. The customer at the other table told the waiter that they would wait for the bread before they left despite being told that it would take 25 minutes. She waited. We finally were served some bread and it was delicious. However, I didn't want to hear their excuses. They should be prepared for a busy Saturday evening.

Delicious food and good service, considering the volume of costumers. I do not recommend this restaurant during busy times. We visited when a concert was about to begin in the area. The noice level and amount of people waiting to be seated was unbearable.

Valentine’s Day date. The food and atmosphere were both amazing as they usually are. The service was outstanding. However, due to the portions being sized for at least three, the bill adds up pretty quickly if you try several dishes. I would recommend dining with at least four to get the true value out of Buca. Overall very good experience but a very pricey meal for two.

Chelsey was a great waitress - she even told us we were her first official customers - she did a great job!! We were a little disappointed with the tiramisu - the ladyfingers were not soft and did not seem to have been soaked in the coffee liqueur/espresso.

We love to come here before Columbus blue jacket hockey games. Food is served quickly and always tastes good! Servings are family style and very large-fun to get a few to share. Only problem is that the foyer is small so waiting g for a table gets cramped but there is a bar to the side as well. My favorite entree is th spaghetti and meatballs and the ziti with ricotta cheeses. The garlic bread is very good too and cut into smaller piec s so that you are not filling up too much on bread. The decor offers a lot to look at and is very comforting and casual. A great place to bring kids since noise level gets a bit higher.
