we have a large family so Bucca is many times our go to place! barring our experience at Christmas Eve which was horrible due to one crazy rude server ... this time for my Birthday with a group of 23 ... they were on point! Our server Marshall was the best ... never missed a bit with our very large group.

We had 10 plus a baby/stroller in our group. The place we were seated was extremely tight and in the way of an emergency exit. Once the manager was involved, we were moved to a much less crowded spot. From that point on, our evening was wonderful! The food was excellent and the service was fantastic.

Very noisy environment. The waitress dropped soft drinks on us and all over my brand new Dooney and Bourke Bag... I was not a happy camper. The food was okay but not worth the price. The least the waitress could have done was to comp the drinks... honestly not a good experience... we will stick with local Italian restaurants in the future . Disappointing....

We ordered the spicy chicken rigatoni and a pizza. There were 3 of us and we ordered 2 larges--should've ordered 2 smalls. Plenty of food arrived & we still have leftovers 2 days later. The food was delicious. I think it was a bit on the higher price range, but it is a fun place to go if you're willing to share food. The server was friendly and the place was clean. Playful, slightly noisy atmosphere.

Let me start with the good, the food was excellent and now for the bad I booked a table for the 5 of us at 7:30 we arrived at 7:20 and were not seated until 7:58, that was a bad start to our New Year's Eve dinner and on top of that our server did not want to be at work on NYE and you could tell by her poor attitude and below average service. But we did not let the previously mentioned issues spoil our dinner which again the food was great!

We came to Buca for Christmas Day lunch. We were seated in the bar area at a table for 7. Our server was very kind and attentive. When the plates were brought to our table for each person, two of the plates needed to be replaced as there was food on them and our server replaced them quickly. The food was decent (minus the one dish that we ordered, but that was never delivered to our table). We were highly dissatisfied wIth the environment. We were seated in the bar area at a table for our group of 7. However, the bar was completely full and some sort of “bar games” were happening. Dining with our family, including 2 young children, was not a nice experience when other patrons were yelling at the bar, the cheering for people to drink and using language that was absolutely not suitable for a family dining experience. I believe we will look for a different place to celebrate with our family next time.

Very disappointed. We had a reservation for 8 for Christmas Eve. When we arrived we were told they were running 35 minutes behind for reservations. The lobby and bar was full of upset patrons. We were not seated until 1 hour after our reservation time. In my opinion, they should have stopped taking walk ins until they were caught up on reservations. While I realize holidays are tough to estimate they were not empathetic to guests about messing up their holiday plans, did not offer an appetizer or anything to compensate. In fact, I never saw a manager. Just a bunch of young adults who seemed frazzled. Our waitress was good and the food was ok. Will not return.

Made reservation for Christmas Eve, but restaurant was running a half hour behind in seating people for their reservations. They did send a text but we were already on our way. Very crowded and little place to sit while we waited. Once seated, food was slow coming. Nearly finished our first entree before the second one came. Food was good, waitress was fine. Recommend going someplace else on a holiday.

Reservation for 5. Had a 6th with us, but they put us in a booth that was comfortable for 4. Asst. Mgr. was amicable and put us at a table, that the host said we couldn't have, because it was 'reserved'. (Saw they put another group of 5 adults in a booth right behind us, that were kind of tight on one side as well!). Poor seating management.

Food was good and we love the family style but service was terrible. Had to wait forever on food and waiter was slow to refill glasses. He forgot our garlic bread order, brought the wrong size pizza and we barely had enough food because he talked us into ordering less than our original plan. We have never had such poor service before. He even brought us the check with our desserts.

Seated in empty section of restaurant, after waiting for 10 minutes with no service we asked to be moved, we were ensured we wouldn't be forgotten and could stay in current section. Appetizer we ordered was half correct, salad came out 30 seconds prior to main meal, drink orders were completely forgotten at this point, only one of the entrees was incorrect, out of four. We are one hour and thirty minutes in now, as we wait for our check and ensure what we ordered and didn't receive was not on check. 1 hour and 45 minutes in now. At this point, just ready to leave and not pay. After 2 hours, I hope no one is expecting a tip for this level of service. Perhaps a refund should come my way. Worst service of any restaurant I have been to in a looooong time.

We've been to many Buca's around the country, had pretty good experiences when we lived in Los Angeles. The one in Charlotte NC was a nightmare, never had a good experience there. We thought, "hey let's give the one in Frisco a try"... The food and serve were much better here, thankfully. We were lucky enough to get to sit at the Chef's table. One of the pasta dishes was delicious but spicier that I remembered from the past, and the frutti di mare was good but the linguine wasn't especially flavorful, but the rest of the food was pretty good. We tried a meatball appetizer, three main dishes, a pizza and dessert. We'd go back.

I had not been to this restaurant in years so decided to try it for a birthday celebration. We were seated by a birthday party of 10 shreiking 5 year old girls! Could not hear ourselves think!! We ordered the Chicken Saltinboca which was good until we realized it did not come with spaghetti. A side of spaghetti was $18 which was very bland and greasy. Food otherwise was blah and unimpressive. Very expensive and not an enjoyable experience. We will not be back. Just have too many other good Italian restaurants locally to be disappointed or spend so much for a mediocre meal!

My last two visits were recent and both were not as pleasant as past experiences. The inside is beginning to look beat up and not in an eclectic way. Servers forgot things both times. First time bread, second time the Apple G salad. It was ridiculously loud. We had our food packed up and left. I'm thinking that if we patron there in the future it would be carry out.

The place is very different, on our way in since it was our first time they took us on a bit of a tour, very interesting place, once seated they explained the concept and history, then they told us about the portions (family style) and that we should try and share some dishes between the 4 of us. Well nobody listened to that and everyone ordered their own dish and we ended up with a mountain of food. Beside the very large family style portions the food was excellent and the service was equal to the food, all in all a very good time had by all. We will be back!

 (San Diego)·Dined on July 1, 2017

Dinner started off well. Entire family including three kids were dining to celebrate family gatherings. Server politely asked for drink order. Came back few minutes later to take the meal order. Started with an appetizer Bruschetta. It was weird at first because toppings were not on top of the Parmesan crostini. They were all inside in a big cocktail looking cup. We had to scoop all topics from the cup and put them on top of the Parmesan crostini.
Kids meal came out next where they ordered cheese pizza and spaghetti with meatballs. To be frank, cheese pizza was terrible where cheese tasted too salty. Spaghetti with meatballs on the other hand had no flavor so kids had to put on some red crushed peppers to spice them up.
Adults main meal came out near perfect (spaghetti with meatballs), but we had to add few drops of Tabasco to spice things up. HOWEVER, when we were about to eat, there was a noisy customer who was drunk yelling and screaming. Got on a multiple calls and screamed even more. Waiter nor bartender didn't bother controlling the guy, he just kept going and going with the scream. Table next to us with their kids left quickly and far table with their kids also did he same. Kids from our table started to get nervous and could not eat their meal, cheese pizza tasted so bad that I couldn't eat them even with extra red crush peppers and Tabasco.
After trying to attempt to get out from the restaurant, waiter asked if we are interested in dessert. Of course kids wants dessert, including adults. So we ordered Gelato, made with three type of gelato topped off with sugar cones. After 5 minutes later waiter comes back to our table and tells us that they are out of sugar cones. But since kids are already looking forward to the ice cream, we ordered it anyways. Few minutes later, ice cream arrives to our table and quickly ate and asked for the check. Even with all the noise, missing sugar cones, I paid full price (with tip) and left there as quickly as possible.
