Order lightly... lots of food. All 7 of us enjoyed our meal. Ordered 2 salads for 3 people, 2 entrees for 3 people, 2 sides and 2 meatballs. Took food home!!! We were so full could not order dessert. Definitely recommend if you can agree on dishes to order!

As always the food and staff were great. There was a large party in another room that kept coming up to our group and sushing us. I'm assuming they had never been to Buca's before booking their even there and didnt realize the atmosphere of the restaurant. The staff handled the situation well, and we were able to enjoy ourselves.

First thing that went wrong, the hostess that took me and my mother to our table took us to 2 stairs and she could see that my mother was struggling to get down the stairs. After I help my mother get down the stairs another customer came up to me and why we didn’t come down the ramp. I look at the hostess and ask her why didn’t she take us to the ramp and she just shrug her shoulders and said I don’t know. We waited almost 1:45 minutes to receive our food. And ask us to hurry up and eat because the room was reserved for another group. Wow really 😡!!!

Our first time eating at Buca. We were excited, having heard good things. Plus it’s close to home so if we loved it, we could make it a regular place to eat. The food had potential to be great. Our Pizza was hot and came 15 minutes before our Pasta, which was cold. It would’ve been great if it had been warm. We had a new server so it wasn’t the best experience. She didn’t do an AWFUL job, she just didn’t know what she was doing and it made our dinner not so great.

This used to be one of my favorite places. Took my parents for their 52nd anniversary. Waiter was kind of cocky and when we asked for more bread, he said he would have to ask permission from the manager because they were controlling food costs. I thought he was joking...about 3 minutes later, the “manager” brings bread to our table and explains in detail how a recent study was done and they had wasted about $9K in bread over the past year!!!! This was ridiculous. My mind was blown that a “manager” would even share this info with a customer. On top of that, they knew it was my parents anniversary dinner and never even said a word to them .... why did you ask if we were celebrating anything??? Floors were dirty and men’s restroom was horrible and this was a Wednesday. I’m convinced this place will be closed in a matter of months. Disappointed!!!!

Service was horrible. We had no forks after requesting them 3 times. We ended up eating our salad with spoons! No joke! Ordered a glass of wine- it finally came after reminding the waiter several times as well as our bread. The food was very subpar for the money we spent. We will not be returning.

The Family was impressed with the food, and overall service we received during our visit at Buca today! We liked our server Romeo, and the whole Buca Team.
It was a special occasion for my wife and I, being our birthday, both on the same day. The Buca Team made us feel special, an with the complimentary Buca Sundae, it was out of this world. (WOW). Thanks for your service, and great food. Thanks for making us feel like Family.
We will be back.

The food was very good and perfect for a large celebration. Because of the family style servings, guests were able to try all sorts of dishes that they wouldn't have been able to otherwise.

We had a large party for a graduation dinner and they seated us on time. The service was good too.

Thank you.

First, I would like to preface this review by stating that since my fiancé and I are paying for a wedding we have not been going on dates very often. This was supposed to be our break away from the mundane and a nice night out as one of our last times before the wedding planning gets intense, therefore, I may be a little harsh here. I made a reservation yesterday on Saturday for Sunday dinner. When we arrived we checked right in no problem and were told it would only be a few minutes until we were seated. No problem. While we were waiting the manager (I’m assuming because of how he was dressed) came around the corner yelling that he “needed singers” (I’m also assuming for a birthday). When he didn’t get the amount he needed he came back up to the “lobby” and yelled again the he “needed singers, now!” And then proceeded to snap his fingers at the very people trying to manage the crowds at the door. There were several large parties there waiting to be seated. When it was our turn to be seated we were taken to a booth in the bar area and the same manager whipped around the corner and told the hostess that she couldn’t seat us there and because that wait person “couldn’t take one more table” and to “take us back to the lobby and we would be seated in a few minutes when another table came available” there was no apology to us and as a matter of fact the manager didn’t even look at us when saying these things to the hostess. It left a bad taste in my mouth but I didn’t want it to ruin the night. The hostess kindly directed us to another section and we were sat immediately.
The service for our table did not get any better. I do not remember the name of our server but to me he could’ve been having an “off” night. Nothing majorly wrong on his part but it was clear he was in a hurry to get us out of there and his focus was not on providing good service. We tipped nonetheless but this experience has certainly left a damper on our impression of Buca and I doubt we return.

we love this place for family gatherings, but the service yesterday was less than stellar. We ordered a bottle of wine that never arrived, beers that never came and bread that never made it to the table.

I would recommend to all wait staff to NEVER state the following to customers : "I've had a long week, I am tired and forgot your drinks....". We do not want to hear excuses.

Have always loved Buca until this trip. Immediately could tell by looking at the menu that the prices had gone way up. When the food arrived it was ice cold like it had been ready for awhile and was just sitting there. As sad as I am to say this because i have always loved Buca, this was probably my last visit.

The waitress did go and get the manager when I first alerted her of the food being cold and he comped my dish which I was thankful, but my wife's dish was even colder

The food is good and I liked the family sized meals, but the decorations were a bit inappropriate honestly. If you have young children, or don’t want to see scantily clad women, I wouldn’t really recommend this place. But otherwise our server was amazing and the food was very good.
