The food is really good and the portion sizes are humongous. The noise level of the room you are seated in drastically depends on whether or not there is a large party seated near you. There was only one other family seated in our room and it was nice and quiet. The service wasn't great. The waitress seemed like she was kind of preoccupied and wasn't all together there. She did try to be friendly although it seemed more forced than anything else.
We had a decent dinner.

I have eaten at Buca many times and this was pretty much the same as every other experience. The food was good and the service was above average. The only disappointing aspect was that they seated us in the same room (right behind) a large birthday party and these people were very noisy. We kind of wanted a nice and quiet dinner; however, that did not happen. I'll have to mention to the hostess to not seat us next to large parties from now on.

The food served family style and its quality is top notch. The servers tried to make it a good night but forgot a few things....2 appetizers, to suggest a salad when we were ordering, a clean wine glass for my wife and a cold beer glass for my mother in law. We waited an additional 10 minutes once we told Thomas we needed it because Heather was delayed in getting back to us. The room was warm for some reason and we had sat there before when we attended a holiday family dinner this past December. I thought it was a one time warm room but guessing this is the usual temperature in this area to the left of the Pope room. The food was so delicious, my daughter enjoyed her birthday dinner and after the earlier missteps all in all we enjoyed ourselves. Thank you, we will come again but maybe not to that section of the restaurant...too warm....no guest should have to break out in a sweat at a family dinner.

I have been to Buca many times. I was celebrating my birthday. The food is good-the wall decor is fun and it's good value. My only problem is that if it's busy the noise level can be very loud which can make it difficult to have a conversation

The Buca chain has always been reliable and an enjoyable experience. This property was deserted, felt old and run down, with a peeling and water-stained ceiling in the lobby area, making me concerned about the cleanliness and sanitary conditions elsewhere. Service was attentive, but that was easy b/c the restaurant was almost empty at 6:30 PM. Food wasn't up to the standard that I've experienced and come to expect from the Buca chain. Wouldn't return.

We made reservations on Mother's Day 2 hours before our reservation. Once there we had a short wait at the bar and then we were seated. Food , service and value were great, especially on a hectic day like Mother's Day .

Went here with the family for mothers day, I wish they would have been a little more assertive with getting people out since they were so busy. Also, since we had our reservation at 3 and we couldn't sit down till about 3:40, that was only the main negative from the experience. I get that these guys were busy but there has to be a limit. Other than that, great food, great beer and we all had a blast.

Food (spaghetti and meatballs) was terrible! Cold, no flavor, lack of sauce for a large plate. The Parmesan Cheese it was cheap not fresh, the worst is that we found a hair in the food, that turned everything down. Not going back!

Extra large portions family style. Our first time. After some lack of clarity regarding the wording of their Sunday special meal the manager straightened the issue out to our satisfaction. We'd like to return again. Great Italian food like Mama used to make.

It was my first time, we were celebrating a retirement for a coworker. We got the pope room, I founded interesting.the music was loud for my taste as we were 18 so I think it was loud ad we were there early like 4pm. Food was okay, as I heard a lot about the place I was expecting more I guess.as I leave in Miami I don't think I would drive so far to go just to go eat there. Overall is fine.
