This the second time in a row we have come to this restaurant using a reservation. Apparently here, reservations are worthless. Made this reservation a month early. Get there a couple of minutes early. After waiting 15 minutes after our reservation time, I check back with the hostess whom told me there was one couple ahead of me. During the following 15 minutes later, half hour after our reservation time, two large groups and five couples were seated. After speaking to a manager, he said we were somehow skipped over. This is not the first time.
Guessing we probably will not return since this is a regular thing that happens to the wife and me when we come to this restaurant. It’s a shame, cause we like the food.
Date night with hubby. 2 people is difficult at family style when you can’t or don’t want to agree on menu. We always start out agreeing to ordering 1 or 2 small menu items but end up with more. Our leftovers filled 4 large containers. Good thing everything we tried was worth keeping. Garlic bread was appropriately garlicky and good enough that I couldn’t stop eating it. Spicy chicken penne was awesome. I LOVE the chicken limone but ask for extra sauce so there is enough especially if it will be reheated later. The italiano supreme pizza has a meat sauce, meat and large vegetable pieces. I thought the large vege pieces didn’t cook as much as I liked but it matched my husbands preference. The meat sauce is really chunky and my husband was thrilled. I think I would have liked another sauce (or pizza) better but that is just personal preference. We will be eating leftovers for days but i wasn’t wanting to cook this week anyway!
great waitress but so loud had to scream to have a conversation
Food was ok--first time we had marsala. We thought that it was just way too sweet. The chef, however, made it up by giving us some shrimp florentine (which was excellent). Other items that were served were terrific (calamari, salad, bread). Risoto was too creamy. However, servings were excellent. The carpet, I think, is due for either an upgrade or a deep steam cleaning. The vents, especially by the corners, needed to be cleaned. Other than this, Buca is a great place to dine. I would still go back, but I hope they would consider our recommendations. :) Waiter was great!
Service was okay and could have been better. Small things like no silverware, took a while to turn around checks, didn't really check in on us - but food was good
This is a great place to meet with friends and family especially for birthdays.
Everyone in our party of 10 (besides the toddlers 2 of them) so 8 of us got sick. We've been to Bucca multiple times and this has never happened however for the price we paid upwards of $250 I feel that we should not have gotten ill...
Had reservations to take our daughter out for a special night out with mom and dad. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. We have eaten here before and had a great experience. First, didn't see our waitress for at least 20 minutes after being seated. It was NOT busy. Finally came and took our drink order. Came back with 2 of 3 drinks. Our daughters came out about 5 minutes later. Fine, can deal with that. Not ideal, but whatever. We order and our food comes out as normal...except our daughters food wasn't there. Waitress said she would check on it. Came back and said she had never put it on the ticket so her food wasn't made. She asked if we still wanted it (???). Manager came over in the meantime and asked how everything was. We were polite, but wasn't a great dinner, so we told him of our issues. After we told him, he said, "huh." No apologies, just moved on to the next table. We weren't expecting anything, but an apology would have gone a long way right then. Won't be going back any time soon.
The waiter we had was really good, precise and knowledgeable
We waited for 45 minutes with a reservation standing next to the menus. We had to move out of the way each time they seated someone. My husband asked twice if they meant Shawn party of 5 instead of Shaw party of 4 and again Shaw party of 6, both times being told no. The third time he went to ask about us being seated the hostess went back two pages and said we called you which we responded no you didn’t we’ve been standing here the entire time. She argued with us but did proceed to find us a table. No apology given. Okay we are an easy going family so no big deal. We ordered cocktails a bottle of wine a combination appetizer platter and a few small entrees to share. 20-30 minutes later we were asked by our server what we had received of our order and we politely told him just the waters when we were seated. He was friendly and went to check on our order. Finally we received our salad and then appetizer platter and drinks. A few minutes after we finished our appetizer the hostess brings out another appetizer platter to realize we had finished ours already. The meal was good and I will say the dessert was incredible!!! The chocolate cake is fabulous!! We boxed up our leftovers and our server informed us that there were no take out bags to carry our boxes in. I carry a large handbag so no big deal. As we left passing the carry out window my husband asked for a bag and the manager turned and asked a server to hand us a bag from the stack beside him. The server that handed us our bag was ours the same guy who told us there were no bags in the entire restaurant. We had to laugh. Would have been nice to have been offered a complimentary anything maybe the cheapest, the garlic bread but we were not. We will give Bucca another try another night and maybe they will do better.
Walked out on reservation before being served. Very disappointed in service.
It was so cold I could not take my coat off! I ate in my heavy coat! Also they put us at this tiny table and did not have room for the food, we ordered an appetizer and before it was half way done our food came out! This was my first time here and will probably not go back!
Celebrated our daughter getting accepted to college.
Great value awesome food will be back soon!!!!!!!??
We went with friends for NYE and the service was great! Our waitress was so friendly and quick!
