$50 for 5 thin pieces of chicken breast and then you have to purchase pasta on the side. Buca has gotten extremely expensive for what you get.

The service was great - our waiter was attentive and friendly!

Tried the new mushroom pasta special, limone chicken and green beans. Everything was tasty. Our server was very good. Buca is kind of expensive but even ordering small portions there are enough leftovers for at least another meal (or two).

Portions are always excessive. Not a good place for just two people if you don't want to bring home lots of leftovers. Salad doesn't really keep overnight. Don't need the kids menu, as there is enough food for everyone with the entrees. They don't offer anything for birthdays which we had noted on our reservation. not candle, no complimentary dessert for the birthday person. We ordered a piece of cake which is $15 and a scoop of ice cream is another $5. we had 4 people and still brought home some cake.

To celebrate our anniversary which occurred during the week I didn't have my scanner setup on my phone because I was unaware that it was required to scan the menu drink menu and dessert menu with my phone I'm not technology-savvy plus I for left my glasses in the car so attempting to use our server as help to get it set up on my phone all he did was restart my phone that didn't solve anything finally got my barcode scanner to work but in the meantime he brought us paper menus so at least we could get things going it really surprised me that the bar did not have olives for martini I said an Italian restaurant I suppose you don't have garlic either well that wasn't an issue food was outstanding very good I love it I'll go back I just wish this pandemic would be over so we could go back to menus thank you

Great time at Buca as always. Nicole was very sweet and helped to make our time special. We loved the mixed green salad and the pizza w pepperoni and peppers. We decided to try the new Rigatoni-Sausage Rustica, but probably won’t order that again. There wasn’t much sausage in it, which was the main reason we ordered it as we love the Buca Italian Sausage. Thank you for a great time!

To start off....Charles was our server and he was FANTASTIC!
The food was FABULOUS.

Our management experience was disappointing! We arrived to celebrate a return from deployment/ birthday.
We were told that our family of 7 had to sit at 2 different tables, 6 feet apart! Did not bode well for a joyous family celebration!

Food is very good, but with large portion sizes (family style) and differing family tastes, it ends up being an expensive outing. With COVID the restaurant we were in was very empty but good take out business...so for those "afraid" of going out this is a good choice for some good food.

Great for taking a bunch of people out to, 9 in our case. Only downside was they had run out of lasagna as an available dish by 6-30 seating time. Lasagna is a staple dish for Italian-should still have enough cooked and ready this early in evening. Service very friendly and helpful.

Kaine is awesome, the guy just gets how to take care of his customers and he helped to make our night special. Had the mixed green salad with the must-add prosciutto and Gorgonzola, a pepperoni pizza and the baked ziti. My son had what he calls the greatest Mac and cheese in the world. All was great, thanks Buca for always being so wonderful. It’s our family favorite.

Food is very good and we enjoy going but it's very expensive for 2 people because of the family size portions and prices. Works out much better for a group of 4 or more sharing salads and side dishes. They do birthday singing which gets annoying when your table is surrounded by them.

We took our daughter here for her birthday because the atmosphere is fun and she loves pasta. Everything from the bottle of cheap red wine to the food was sub par and very pricey. There were 6 of us and everyone thought the food was bad and the $60 bottle of house wine was not worth it. Our waitress was excellent and we do like the ambiance here but we will not be back.

It was very terrible, I went there to celebrate my birthday with coupons from Buca. They gave me a discount, but The dessert portion of my birthday meal was denied by my server. Then when I called the manager after because it was so busy in there. She just stated they were sorry the server wasn’t trained and they would honor it in the future if I came back and bought another meal. Never mind my birthday was the point of the whole event.

We usually visit the St Paul location, and have been very satisfied with all aspects of our meal each visit. At Eden Prairie, food was simply not up to usual standards; middle warm, not hot, minimal cheese on garlic cheese bread, baked pasta meals very very light on sauce making them dry and noodles over cooked. Very expensive for quality of food received; quantity is not everything. We were there before 6PM and not very crowded, except for rambunctious family with multiple children under 5. Not sure why we were seated next to them with 80% of the restaurant empty and they had obviously been there for a while.
