    I understand wanting to give guests the ‘real Italian feel’ but it really is unnecessary to drag meals out for 3-4 hours. I don’t know how you stay in business turning tables over so slowly.

    The Buca concept is tired and uninspired. Servers and hostesses seem to lack any motivation to be there. With litter all over the parking lot, tables with unkept dishes, and tables waiting for assistance, unoccupied staff could regularly be seen playing on their personal mobile phones. This is a management failure. In turn, the cost and ambiance do not compel me to ever visit again. It was actually somewhat embarrassing that I was the one that invited our group of 12 to this location. What an unfortunate reality as I remember the Buca heyday in the late 1990’s.

    We had a party of 9. We were crammed into a table for 8. There was no room on either side of the table and we had a person hanging off the the end of the table. I asked to be reseated and the host looked at me and said there was no where else to go. There wasn’t enough room on the table for the food. The servers were nice. Food was okay. The lasagna has clearly been sitting under a heating lamp or left out for a while as it was dry and unappetizing. The cheese manicotti was better but also had been sitting out for a while. Overall, being packed into a table that wasn’t meant for our size party was a real turn off. And then to be dismissed so quickly by the host gave us a bad experience. Also, seeing servers, and busboys walking around with headphones/airpods in is a bit of a turn off. I would recommend the place after our experience.

    Corrine was our server. She was very nice but she NEVER brought us our appetizer. She kept coming by our table to advise that our food was coming, then she brought our entrées. I asked about our appetizer, and she said "OH" I'll go get it. I told her to forget it, we already have our dinner. She said she would take it off our bill. (Well, I certainly hope so). We REALLY were looking forward to our appetizer. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!

    First time in the restaurant. Nice old fashion italian decor. There are NO portions for 1 person… the plates are expensive and for 2 people therefore you have to eat what the other person orders. Same for the pasta… a bid expensive plate (double the price). Nice wine and by the bottle. Desert size and price are outrageous! $18 plus tax and tip for 1 tiramisu! I am NOT coming back to this place for sure! Good luck!

    This favorite of ours has been starved for good servers so we have primarily purchased orders to go since 2020. Last two trips to dine in are showing improvement. As good as the food is I would like to see them improve wine selections. We would come a lot more and if the wine is great then waiting for food is much more pleasant!

    I will never go there again. Poor quality food served in large quantities WAY OVER PRICED. Marina sauce was awful looked like canned tomatoes over a bowl of spaghetti. Calamari $20 was worth $10. Signature Meat balls were tough poor quality and Italian Sausages were salty(sweet) and over spiced (hot). Too many good Italian offerings in Coolsprings other than Bucca.
