    Buca is a special place for us we go to for special life events. This is Where we had our 1st date and went the night we got engaged, and had it catered in for our rehearsal dinner. This was the 10th anniversary of our 1st date. As always the food was great. Huge, family style portions. We have the fried mozzarella, lasagna and chicken parm. All 4 of us were stuffed! Had some great cocktails as well. Can’t wait for the next big milestone in life so we can come back for more!

    I came for dinner with a colleague while on a business trip. We were seated quickly and our waitress got our drink and food order. Our entrée arrived before the salad (they had to be reminded). The place was filling up quickly and the server appeared to be overwhelmed. But the food was very good and a good experience over-all.

    the place has lost it's original appeal that the place had 20 yrs ago. I'd love to see it go back to the kitch Italian simplicity. the ambiance of days ago made the food taste better. the music ... I remember the menu on the wall or on the placemat... wine served in short glasses.. the birthday candelabra and massive slice of choc cake was fun. the presentation now just feels overpriced -- cheap food. Apps served in cast iron skillets needs to be left to Texas Road house type chain. No music in the background was noticeably quiet .. not in a good way. However the service was top notch. Super friendly and attentive. That was the high point of a very expensive disappointment.

    We had reservations at 9:30 and when we got there they said they closed at 9. They said it wasn’t their fault we made a reservation when they were closed. We walked there from our hotel with children in zero degree temperatures. There was nothing else in the area to eat at. Very disappointing!

    Dirty, dirty, dirty!!! Would not recommend. Having been here multiple times in other cities, I did not expect the poor experience we ultimately endured. While the server was beyond pleasant and apologetic for the problems we had (dirty dishes, bug in drink, etc), he did not make any effort to “make it right”.

    I brought my daughter and my mother and we were really excited for the dinner. While our server John was absolutely amazing, our food and experience was somewhat of a let down. First, our hot food came out before our salad. Not completely disappointing but definitely odd. But then! We got the spicy chicken rigatoni and the pasta was very good but the chicken was HORRIBLE! My mother spit hers into a napkin. I thought she might be crazy so I tried the next bite. It tasted like old chicken they pulled out of a freezer and microwaved. It was absolutely disgusting. I spit mine out as well for fear of getting sick. When I asked the server to fix it, he was quick to do so and with no problem. We asked for either fresh chicken or if that wasn’t possible, just the spicy noodles without the chicken. He quickly brought us fresh pasta without the chicken. This time though, I think they forgot to make it spicy. We ate with no issues. When we received our bill, we were still charged the full price for chicken pasta! We paid it because we didn’t want to make a scene, but I just think that is so wrong. We didn’t even eat their gross chicken! It was very disappointing. But John was great!

    Overall, very good and I would go back. More food than we needed for just 2 of us. Capreese Mozzarella was way over salted- I truly think someone lost their train of thought and sprinkled it twice (at least!). Chicken carbonara was wonderful. Lemon Raspberry cake (forget name) was sooooo good and worth it.

    A very nice and efficient waitress and she became very busy but was still attentive.

    Good food and service. The booths are worn and showing their age.

    Did not have bread or sausage, the lasagna did not taste very good and the meatballs were very dry. Server was good.

    It was a convenient location after Yuletide Celebration! You literally walk through the service/ serving, so multiple people breathing and passing over drinks prep, bread prep; just awful. Also very hot temperature within our section, requested more air to cool the air, very stuffy. Our server did a great job, but rather pushy with suggestions of recommended dishes. Food was lousy; 1 large Caesar salad, 2 small entrees, 1 chicken 1 spicy pasta dish small size. 4 adults, 2 kids 41/2 & 6 months, no alcohol beverages; 1 kid milk, 2 unsweetened ice teas, 1 diet, 1 water= $ $148 with tip.

    We had the chicken limone and Brussel sprouts. The chicken was not bad at all. the same goes for the Brussels. I ordered the large and was charged for the large but received a small(3 small pieces) for $51.00. I questioned my waiter, and she brought out two more small pieces. I also never received silverware until I asked for it. The place wasn't busy, but you would assume it was by the service. All in all, food quality vs. service just doesn't add up for me.

    John, our server, was great! (They should mention the cost for the birthday special treat.) We had plenty of food for our party. Hard to estimate how much was right anount...

    Service was extremely slow. We were sat for 15 minutes before anyone brought us water or attempted to take our order. Twice the server came to us and asked if we were ready to order anything and waited less than 5 seconds for us to respond before she left. Food service was very slow. It took about 45 minutes for our food once we ordered. The restaurant was only half full and we only ordered fettuccini alfredo and manicotti which should have taken all of 10 minutes to make. Food was fine once it arrived, but it was pretty expensive for basic Italian fare.

    This place needs new seats and tables for starters. We were sat in a booth with seats that had visible dips all along in the spots where the springs had collapsed, topped off by the table being a plastic folding table that was too long and wide for the space. Only had one server for the entire bar area where we had been sat and she also had to be the bartender. She did as best she could but obviously needed help. Because of the service issue half of our food came out lukewarm at best. Overall a pretty disappointing experience at a place that we used to really enjoy.

    Visited Indy from Florida with a reservation for 9 pm. Ordered chicken parmigiana, but upon arrival, it was brown, hard, and unappealing, seeming to be the last of the night left under a lamp for too long. The waitress was apologetic and removed it from our bill, but the manager's response was disappointing. He claimed there was "nothing he could do about the food; it's all the same." Despite the waitress's embarrassment and apologies, the manager continued with negativity and even offered to cook another himself, which we declined. This experience tarnished what used to be a great restaurant.

    Very expensive and very poor quality. Walked in and the food that they were serving with in the aisle right where you walk by, no food safety. The food we received was heated up lasagna, which was old and cold yet. Prices were very expensive for poor quality. They were understaffed and the person serving us was not qualified.
