Everything was amazing, except I felt that our reservation might have been missed or something. The people who reserved behind us were sat immediately and the hostess left to speak to someone about ours. We were then placed in a rather secluded area that looked closed, and we were really close to a lot of the staff and computers where they make their tickets. It didn’t ruin the night but the ambiance was a bit thrown off the whole time

We were seated in the bar area to accommodate mobility challenges but the 1st booth cushions were like seating on a board. We asked to be reseated and the 2nd booth was better but still not sufficient.
The service was slow and several simple request had to be repeated. The requested birthday desert was one of them. When it came it didn't have the requested candle, no plates or silverware. What should have been a pleasant surprise for my 87 year old mother in law fell flat. Disappointing,

The food was excellent but the service was far, far from acceptable. First, we had reservations 4 days in advanced for a Saturday Night at 7:30pm. Walk up to the hostess at 7:25pm and she says, "sorry, our reservations are running about an hour late". Hmmm, why did I make a reservation? We wait, finally get seated and wait another 10 minutes until someone asks if we want drinks. We asked for drinks and garlic bread. We got cheese bread. Ordered main courses, and they took a long time to come out. Had to flag someone down for drink refills, napkins, Parmesan Cheese. You name it. Our waitress didn't stop by very often. I think we were putting her out having to stop by. Were they busy? Short staffed? not my problem at these prices. Just wanted a good meal. Luckily, the food was excellent. 2 stars, sorry.

Went for Valentine’s Day. It was pretty good, my only complaint is the lasagna sauce has no flavor. It was just tomato sauce. Definitely needed some seasoning.

The server was either over stretched or not very attentive. The chicken parmigiana was bland, but everything else was ok. Loud customers talking about nonsense was the biggest turn off. Probably won’t be going back anytime soon.

This was the second time we've been to Buca since restaurants re-opened in the spring. Granted, it was Christmas, and they were very busy. The hostess seemed pretty frazzled. Our table was in a strange location, but it was okay. Our server was very nice, but service was slow. The entrée we usually get was not on the menu anymore, and our replacement entrée was good enough, but kind of bland. I also saw a person not complying with mask mandates for the first time since the mandate began, but of course there's not much a restaurant employee can do about that. It was a good experience overall, and we've had much better there so will definitely give it another shot.

Not as good as it once was. Server was attentive, but got my drink order wrong. Ordered a pasta dish with chicken and it tasted like they used cut up frozen chicken. Tasted like dirt. I remember years ago they served you a whole chicken breast. I was disappointed. I didn't complain to the server.

Both the food and service were exceptional. Only criticism I could offer is the noise level. A bit too noisy for my. Open Table refers to that noise level as “energetic”. To me it’s just plain too loud. But overall, I’m looking forward to my return trip.
