Normally this Bucca is very good... We ordered the Ziti, it was barely warm, which is very unusual. Would've considered sending back, however, we had already been there far too long. The other disappointing thing was the Calamari... We used to love it there, however, the last couple of times we ordered, it wasn't very good (tough/chewy, and had sort of a burnt taste). We'll most likely go again, just hoping we start seeing some improvements.

We love the food at Buca but had stopped going since the manager Brad left. The service, wait time and food went downhill when he wasn't in charge. We decided to give it a new try and met the new manager and assistant manager and we were happy to see that things are looking up at this restaurant once again. Looking forward to going back.

Really cool Italian restaurant. Food is really good and the portions are huge. The service was prompt, fast and knowledgeable. The decor is pretty cool as well. I'd definitely recommend to anyone who want some Italian food.

Our server was amazing but the food was not great.
The fettuccine tasted like whipping cream and had no seasoning on it.

Not a great experience. An hour before close and they were basically shut down. Seated us next to the kitchen and really wasn't enjoyable to see them mopping and eating food back there. We were told the appetizer was "frozen already", and when we got it, was chewy and undercooked. They pushed the veal at half off, but sadly it was awful. Both of us actually had stomach issues that night. Don't think we will be back.

Family style authentic Italian. Bruschetta is amazing. Serving size states small 2-3 but easily feeds 4

Overworked waitress but she tried hard to do a good job. Tasteless shrimp Florentine.

Absolutely terrible experience. Dinner out with the family and it could not have been worse. We were seated 15 minutes after our reservation in a dirty room with tables that had dirty dishes on them next to us, bread was late, server was never available, floor was dirty, we had to wait way too long for everything. Lastly the pasta did not have enough sauce and drinks were never refilled. We will not be back
