We came to this restaurant for an early dinner. It wasn’t that busy yet. It was pretty expensive for two people, so I recommend coming with a larger party to share the meals. Our server was very attentive. The food was simple, but satisfied the craving for carbs.

Got there at 11:00AM on a Monday for lunch. We were seated inside and luckily, there were only two other parties. They left every other table empty, so that was reassuring. Wait staff was energetic and helpful with the suggestions. Always had their masks on so that was good.

A group of 7 friends and I all went out to eat for my birthday here and it was so amazing!! They have a cute little set up outside due to current situations and made the most of it! So adorable!! The server was fantastic and everything about the night went so well. I love the family style portions even though most of us ordered for ourselves. We had so many leftovers which you can’t complain about! Delicious! They were all so kind and accommodating for our celebration, truly some of the best service I’ve had in a while. I cannot wait to go back again to enjoy a night out. 11/10 would recommend to anyone :D

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.
