My first visit at this location and I don’t think I will be back. There was a 30 minute wait for my table even though I had a reservation. The hostess seemed overwhelmed though it didn’t appear to e all that busy. Food came out super slow and it was all very uninspiring. My waiter was the saving grace as he was kind, attentive, and apologetic. Ordered dessert while I was still eating my meal as I assumed it would take a while. It took at least 30 additional minutes to arrive and again was nothing to get excited over. This is one place I will not he returning to.

Bucca had some issues on Saturday night. Very slow. We were there for over 2 hours and were seated immediately. All we ordered was drink, wine, appetizer salad and chicken. The wait staff was very kind about the wait, but seems like something always happens when we go there. Probably not go back anytime soon.

First impression, terrible. We were seated immediately, great. Then we sat almost 30 minutes before seeing our server for the first time and giving her our drink order. We had our 2 very young children with us, so this was frustrating. Our table was located directly in the cold air draft from the front door. I had to keep our baby covered with a blanket for the entire meal. The cold air affected our food, our spaghetti was cold shortly after getting to the table. We had a disappointing Christmas Eve family dinner.

Took our youngest son here for his birthday. They sat us in the kitchen which is basically the best seat in the house and private dining. They made a big deal over him the entire time we were there. He was so happy and had such a great time. The manager checked on us a couple times. We didn’t have one of our entrées and she made sure that we not only got it in a timely fashion but it was taken off of our bill. Happy we chose here for his birthday dinner. Everyone enjoyed the experience and the food was excellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here, although a few things were not quite right.

First was the table size; we were a party of six and four of us are over six feet tall. The restaurant was not busy and they squeezed us in to a too small table. The first round of drinks and the appetizers came out promptly, but the dinners took 45 minutes to serve, longer than we would have liked.

Secondly, they asked if we were celebrating anything. We replied yes, two engagements. Never heard about it again ~ weird!

Thirdly, after one drink the bar ran out of sour mix. It didn't harm our dinner, I was just looking forward to more than one drink.

If you go on Sunday nights make sure you ask about their secret Sunday Dinner Menu. We didn't find out about it until we were already eating our 3 chicken cutlets for thirty dollars and a bowl of spaghetti for another thirty dollars. I don't complain much, but they were very dismissive when asked why we weren't informed of the special Sunday Menu and did nothing to make this little omission right. It's not surprising that the place was next to empty with this kind of customer service. We could have had a multi-course meal for thirty-six dollars, but instead foolishly wasted eighty dollars. Ce la vie!

The service was good. Our server was very attentive and answered our questions. The salads we ordered below par. The lettuce was wilty and loaded with too much dressing. We complained to our server and she relayed to the manager. She was surprised because she watched them prepare the salads. She offered alternatives, we opted for taking it off the bill and returned them. The mussels were tasty , but, over cooked. The dinners were good and very tasty (lot of flavor.

It was my birthday and the place looked nice while walking through the restaurant to get seated.
They placed my party of 4 in a booth which was fine, but a lady sitting behind my husband and soon was screaming and cackling the whole time. I glared at her to let her know she was annoying and to shut up!! Ruined my whole Birthday evening...Her family told her to keep her voice down and the staff came by and was talking to her didn’t even tell her that she was loud, it looked like she knew someone they worked there.
I was about to get up and move and to be laced else where but our food arrived, which was not bad...
Disappointed at the staff who did NOT do or say anything to that family...other tables were affected by it too.

We went with another couple and enjoyed the family style/sharing options. The dishes we chose, some of which we had had before, were very good! All of the food was very fresh, nothing was reheated, nicely presented and quite tasty! We do feel that the bottled wine prices are too high for what you’re getting and it was helpful to have a $20.00 off coupon! It had also been my Birthday recently so I did have a coupon for a free Colossal Brownie Sundae which was wonderful and sinful and fed 4 of us with some left over! All in all, we enjoyed our evening and look forward to returning!

I've been taking my family here about twice a year for at least the last 4 or so years. This last time (July 27th) maybe our last. We liked this restaurant for the location, food selection and service. This last time was such a disappointment in so many levels, I don't think I will ever take my family there again. The wait staff use to be very attentive, welcoming and caring, I didn't get an inkling of that. This could be an off night for our waitress so lets chalk that up as that. The food, I understand restaurants need to make money but the prices went up drastically but the food quality went down as well. We had linguine frutti di mare and chicken saltimbocca. The linguine was horrible, the sauce tasted like someone opened a can of diced tomatoes added salt, oregano and water. The chicken was dry in the middle and barely had any sauce and garnishes, I use to love their chicken saltimbocca. My wife and I usually have seconds but the taste was very disappointing to say the least, if the cooks themselves put this quality of food for their customer's they really don't care about their job which also explains the below average performance of the wait staff. About a year ago my wife gave this a 5-star rating, today we feel we wasted our time and we feel cheated. Sad to say but this could be the last time I will dine at this establishment.
