This place was AMAZING.! Better than Olive Garden honestly.! Authentic Italian food and everything my husband and I had ordered was made FAST and just tasted amazing.! Yes it is pricey BUT it's for a good reason.! I would recommend this place to anyone who asks just be prepared to pay a pretty penny if you want to order more than one thing.! Other than that 100/10 recommended.!

Dinner with the family, it was very busy and the service was good especially the weekend after Valentine's day. Ordered our food and very thing was except when the waitress brought our plates, they were still dirty though it just came out of the dish washer, so says the waitress but we got new ones right away. Our salad came right after that then our pasta came out. We ordered extra pasta sauce knowing that they dont put enough in the pasta dish we usually order and they didnt bring the extra pasta sauce when they brought out the pasta and we had to ask another helper/waiter for the sauce and he said he'll check on it. The person came back and told us "it will take a while to get it ready" I'm thinking why would it take awhile, they had the sauce when they made the pasta why didnt they make more at same time? Dont they have like a big pot or container that's premade set aside and they just heat it up. Couldn't they do it all the same time? Chef/cook time management? Oh, well... the pasta sauce came out but now our pasta got cold while waiting for the extra sauce :( we were hungry so it was like never mind let's just eat and enjoy each other. No other mishap for the rest of the night, we got our dessert (tiramisu) which is always good. We asked our waitress if she could add a little more crushed biscotti on the tiramisu and she kind of looked at us like "what is that? Add what? I'm not sure but okay" kind of look but we did have extra biscotti on tiramisu that made my sister happy. All and all it was good (food and service) and a little mishap is okay if its corrected. Always like coming back here.

The cost was somewhat expensive but the portions were large. Our waiter, Dustin, gave good service. The sun coming in the window was a little annoying. The food was good. I especially like the limone chicken. The appetizer was a little spicy for me but great for my husband. He enjoyed his tutti frutti.

The ease of booking my party through Open Table is probably my most favorite! Nice is great place to take your kids and large groups. We felt so comfortable at our table we totally forgot we were a party of 17. We loved the Family style BIG portions and the food came pretty quick especially thoughtful of bringing the kids food first...we left full and happy.

The food is always delicious and generously sized. My husband and I shared a small lasagna and bruschetta bread and still had leftovers. They sat us in a booth in the bar area. The noise was quite loud and we could hear dishes fumbling in the kitchen. We will probably ask to be seated somewhere else on our next visit

We came with reservations so the wait was minimal. Service was good. Food was good value. Some dishes were very good, a few just so- so. Six of us were packed in one booth which made it quite tight and uncomfortable. Place was so crowded so the noise level was really high. Our waiter was very friendly and efficient. Overall we enjoyed the meal and would consider going back.

Buca isn't what it used to be in my estimation. The fun, Italian family dinner atmosphere remains, but our recent experience was less than stellar. The service was slow and obviously short-handed and the food wasn't as consistent as it used to be. We had the penne with vodka sauce and the pasta was just at the brink of being overcooked. This was surprising as the restaurant wasn't very crowded either. Also, the wait staff never removed our appetizer plates in favor of larger dinner size plates, so eating the main meal was a bit of a challenge. The mains did not come out together, either, so we had to await one dish after we were pretty much finished with everything else.

Los platos son grandes. Y muy ricos.
Cena de año nuevo cerraban muy temprano por eso tuvimos que comer rápido porque se querian ir.
Tendrían que cerrar para fechas asi o simplemente no dar la posibilidad de reservar tarde.
Se supone que si podes reservar es porque el restaurante esta abierto y la atencion de los empleados esta disponible.
Comer corriendo cuando te das cuenta que los empleados quieren que pidas, comas y te vayas en 5’ no esta bueno. Porque en definitiva estas pagando la comida. No te la regalan.

Was New Year’s Eve. Food was excellent. Atmosphere was not good at all. In our small area there were three tables that were not cleared for a very long time. They were dirty w dishes etc and looked terrible. Very unappetizing. I don’t think the server appreciated when I asked him about it. They eventually partially cleared the tables. In other restaurants in the area they clear tables quickly and turn them over. Maybe this restaurant would be busier if they kept it looking cleaner.

We had our new year eve’s dinner at Buca, it was ok. We order the Fruti Di Mari pasta every time we go there. It’s always hit and miss. Sometimes we get enough sauce, but more often than not it’s way too dry, like it was on this visit. One of their ovens were broken, so we didn’t get any bread. Bummer! But fortunately our pizza didn’t take any longer than normal. Buca is just one of those places where you don’t expect a lot, but we should at least be able expect some kind of consistency. But more so, the pasta we order is one of their most popular dishes, therefore that should always be expectedly great, unfortunately it never is. With the menu prices as they are now, not worth the money, when u get mediocre food.

At the last minute, our family of 16 had a schedule change which would allow all of us to celebrate and have Christmas Eve dinner together! Thankfully Buca had a reservation available. The staff was very pleasant - even when I added on 3 to our party, the morning of Christmas Eve. The waitstaff was on it, even with a super busy room and our table full of hungry energetic kids! 1 kids pizza order was backed up very late, and the restaurant felt really bad. They ended up comp’ing the pizza (which we took home for leftover) and they gave us a HUGE dessert sundae! Thanks Buca!

It took an extremely long time for service at the restaurant. We had family arrive and there were not enough chairs for them and they hand to eventually go and get their own chairs and place settings as the server was too busy to be able to assist (we had made a reservation in advance for the size of our party). Our food also came out in several shifts so we were all eating at different times and some were finished long before others. We also sat for an extended period of time on arrival until we eventually had to request drinks and appetizers as the server did not come by to offer to take our orders.
