Huge and tasty meat balls! Delicious fresh made bread, but they keep forgetting my garlic-free bread! :( 3rd time...and counting, funny our server even remembered us from 2nd time with the no garlic bread event:). Regardless, food is good so we keep showing up :).

Zachary, our server, did an outstanding job. The only 'but' l have again is the bread. I asked for no garlic on bread and for the 3rd time, garlic was added, then denied it was used. It's kind of insulting to my smell buds. The chicken however was amazingly soft as always, delicious.

Most of the food was delicious, the pizza and Brussel sprouts were very good, however, the spaghetti was a bit watery. The service was great but as it got busier we had to call our server over a few times because she stopped checking on us. I do not think it was done purposely, I just think it became very busy for her. We had reservations and were seated about 10 mins after checking in, which was still on time. The food came quickly and we enjoyed the family style portions. If I had to say anything negative it was that the table was a bit small for the amount of food we ordered. Very nice environment. Received a free photo.

First, our server was GREAT, so my low score is not related to her service. It is due to the fact that we waited for a table at the bar and it was a major turnoff since the bar area is filthy. The heavy drapes, the glass shelves and the bar mirror are covered in dust. You could actually see dust in the air while seated at the bar. The carpets throughout the restaurant are very worn and look so dirty. For a food service business, this is unacceptable to me. When seated, we were squished into a tiny table up against a wall that did not allow for a comfortable meal based on the fact that the servings are family size and it was necessary to actually turn plates sideways in order for them to fit and then maneuver to serve ourselves and use utensils to eat comfortably - would not recommend this restaurant for these reasons.

We go to this Buca with some regularity. Our daughter was home from college and this was her pick to bring a few friends along too. Very good food and they always have coupons for a little savings.

Food was good as always. We had a little incident...3 times the wrong item was brought to the table...I specifically asked for toasted bread NO garlic...and all 3 times garlic was on the bread. IF you like garlic it's great, but when you can't stand the smell of it...I actually began feeling nauseated and dizzy. Don't know where the miscommunication happened. Danielle, our waitress, did asked if I was feeling better after she saw I felt sick, very kind of her. Nevertheless, the item was taken off the bill when asked, although, I shouldn't have needed to asked. As a funny note, as we got up to leave, heard someone from the table next to ours asking for bread with lots of garlic! :)

Gabriella, our server, has the sweetest voice! She was very attentive to our needs. This trip began not so sweet, I got a little upset when two different parties were seated before us and had the same reservation time as us. However, the just made fresh-bread, calmed me down! :) Delicious! The chicken was so tender.... just the perfect ending to the night.

Our Company went out to to celebrate bosses birthday.
Hostess was rude, created an issue , lied, and then blamed our company for the confusion.
How much effort does it take to add a table of six to a group of 20?
We will NOT be back

We haven’t eaten here in years. It was not as we remembered. The food tastes very processed and mass produced. The experience used to seem unique- now just feels very commercialized.

It was our first time there and the waitress was new as well. We didn't know much about the menu and would have liked some recommendations. We ordered something and got something completely different. I ordered the Italian Creme cake and a cappuccino. The cake arrived first and 20 minutes later cappuccino arrived. It was my birthday and would have expected something way different.

I didn't think they made a birthday event special at all with the one scoop of ice cream with no sparkle or anything but maybe that would be too much to ask. Other than that, service was fine no small talk or any kind of personality from waitress but fine.

We had a $20 off coupon from Buca and used it to enjoy our meal of salad, canneloni, and cannoli for dessert. Our waiter was polite, quick, and knowledgeable. We sat in bar area...think that's why it was so quiet.

The family style menu can be an advantage, especially if you are with family and don't mind sharing dishes. They are kid-friendly, and there is so much to look at on the walls in every room! Desserts are huge & delicious.

This was my third time visiting this location and it went well. Celebrated my engagement kind of last minute with family here. They were able to put us in a smaller room as we did not book a room and it wasn't too loud at all. Everyone liked the food but the fettucine alfredo was bland and could've used more seasoning. Overall we enjoyed it and would go back.
