This is my second time here because I like the place and a good atmosphere. The appointment was well-timed and a fair service, food overpriced and don't order a glass of wine here at least you are planning to spend a fortune for it.

Went for a family dining experience and to celebrate ( undercover) two Adult Birthdays. 4 members out of our party of 6 had never been to any Bucca location and totally enjoyed the Family Style service, the vast menu selection and the nod to the old world ambiance.

service was great , our waiter was on top of things for being a larger party and doing it all himself, major kudos for that, ambience of the place was wonderful, food was ok, alfredo lacked flavor, spaghetti was watery, pizza was delicious and salads were great.. I just expected more from pastas... pricing is a lil high for what it is, but to eat there once in a blue moon is ok, I wouldn't eat there often..

To be honest, the atmosphere in Buca is the best part of this restaurant- while the meatballs were gargantuan and tasty, the spaghetti noodles were far from al dente as you would expect from a traditional Italian restaurant; instead they were soft and soggy, drowning in a murky red tomato marinara in the bottom of the bowl-reminding me of cafeteria noodles.
Chicken Marsala was flavorful but dry. At least the Peroni was cold and refreshing. To top it off, the only justification for the high prices were the large-sized portions of food we received; unfortunately they did not match the quality of food we were served.
This may be the last time I visit....in favor of a Maggiano’s or a non-chain family restaurant.

Very disappointed - had a reservation for 6PM but didn't get seated until 6.40PM. Service was very poor and food was not served consistent. Pasta was cold - and we had to ask for plates. Pizza was stated for serving 3 - in reality, it was for 1. No follow up from waitress. Can not recommend this place.

The servers were spectacular, personable, helpful. The food was mediocre. We had calamari and it had a very tough texture. The eggplant parmesan was nothing special - bland and thickly sliced.

It was terribly loud and we were near a passageway so were constantly bumped.

Prices have really gone up! Appetizer $20 antipasto salad $21, spaghetti $33, wine $11 for a 6ox. Food is good but definitely not as good as the prices suggest. If you go, definitely look for coupons before. I wish they’d get rid of their standing coupons they post and just reduce their prices. If I want that high of prices, I’ll go to Maggiano’s where I’ll also have the foo foo ambiance. As a side note the staff was really nice and our waiter was attentive. The only bad things was the prices.

The hostess wasn’t very welcoming and I’m Not sure why we were one of the first guests and with a reservation that’s was sat on the 2nd floor next to a party instead of another area. While the penne a la vodka was delish, they could’ve cooked the noodles a little longer especially since the other dish of ours was slowing down the delivery of our food
