Poor Bucca has gone downhill so badly. They haven’t update on what feels like decades, she bathrooms and floors were nothing short of filthy, and the smell was about what you’d imagine it would be per the comments above. We used to love this place, but it might be time to close the doors if I were the owners.

We celebrated our birthdays here & we had a wonderful time.
Food was tasty , & the serving was huge. We enjoyed the colossal brownie sundae the most. Thanks for making our birthday special. Will certainly be back .

Food was great, service was great! The only reason l marked 4 stars in overall it's because they allow customers inside without mask...although...they are careful inside with distancing tables.

The server seemed irritated through most of our meal. Granted, it is possible, her attitude may have started when I took a phone call from my 95 year old aunt who is in a nursing home. She seemed irritated that we said yes when she asked if we wanted new plates for our entrees (we had ordered salad and garlic bread to start). She placed her thumb across the eating service of the plates when she handed them to us, did not check in for most of our meal, and did not keep up with drink refills. We typically visit Buca a few times a year, including during COVID, primarily because we know our picky 12 yo will eat the salad, bread and spaghetti. We will, however reconsider next time, given this experience,

Long story long.... the waitress sucked. She brings out the drinks and spills the tray (totally felt bad for her) it’s a combination of teas, water and soda. Both my son and My shoes get wet... no apologies no napkins nothing at all. From there it went down hill, after cleaning up the mess it would take an additional 10 mins to get our drinks and not all of them but 2 here and a few there and all the rest after our food was brought out. The food came out fast but so fast that it came with our salad .. so that means you either eat the food first or the salad fast cause the food will and did get cold by the time we finished our salads. After she placed the food down she asked if we needed anything else ???? Yessssss plates ? Silverware? The rest of our drinks? The bread we asked for ? Lemons and sugar for our tea? Each time she brought 1-2 things and asked anything else and I had to keep repeating until we finally got everything 😞!! We wanted to get dessert and coffee but instead of asking if we wanted or needed anything else she just said can I bring the check 🤔... so we wrapped it up and had coffee and dessert somewhere else. I always tip 20-25% and didn’t want to tip anything but I left 10%.... I doubt she even thinks she was the problem and instead probably thinks we are cheap .. last time they get my business.
