We ordered the Apple Gorgonzola Salad, which while delicious, is somewhat pricey. We also had the Quattro al Forno, a combo pasta dish that consisted of
Cheese Manicotti, Chicken Cannelloni, Cheese Ravioli & Stuffed Shells, and ALL were quite delicious. All in all, a home run!

I've been to this establishment many times, and on those occasions I would've been more than happy to give "5 stars" for each category. This time, however, was a little disappointing. We had a party of seven, three of which were experiencing Buca for the first time. The table where we were sat was a smaller table. We had three members on one side and squeezed in four on the other side. Every time my son moved, I was elbowed in the side. I had to eat with my arms in a near complete immobile state due to the fact that if I moved I would elbow someone. Our server was very pleasant, however, when it came time for our tickets she was too involved with singing "Happy Birthday" on four different occasions. We finally received our tickets but due to the lack of a writing utensil for anyone at our table, we had to wait for her to check on us to let her know of this situation. . . And no, none of us had a pen/pencil in our possession. I would have really enjoyed it much more at a larger table. One of the "first timers" in our group suggested that maybe serve some of the entrees on a bed of pasta. I feel that is a feasible suggestion. Will I return? Yes. Will I recommend it? Yes.

Another enjoyable evening meal. The salmon was great with take home the extra served. My wife ordered the chicken with Alfredo sauce instead of marinara and found it delicious.

When I come across a great service I like to give them recognition by name and Thomas certainly deserves that and more.

Unfortunately our experience was less than good. Our experience unpacked as follows. The atmosphere and seating were compelling and enjoyable for our group of 10. The service was attentive and helpful, however they were a bit sloppy and inexperienced. One server was rotating the lazy Susan too quickly causing the freshly placed bottle of wine to slide off and knock a drink into one of our colleague's lap. This was after a similar 'near miss' with an appetizer platter. Okay, accidents happen? The serving sizes were huge and timely, which is good. However the food quality/flavor was marginal. The lasagna was over-cooked, chicken stuffed with broccoli was bland, and baked ziti lacked flavor. The chopped antipasto salad was very good. It was 'bulk, bland, caloric intake'. The desert sampler trays were huge. The chocolate cake, cheesecake, and Italian cream cake, were all excellent.

I made reservations to celebrate 2 birthdays in our party. Our waitress was slow and seemed a bit confused/ disorganized. I understand that night was busy. I have been to this restaurant several times in the past but this was th worst service I received there. They did not sing happy birthday. There other tables that were seat well after our party and was served food well before our party. We ordered our food pretty early due the fact we are familiar with the menu. We discussed our issues with the manager and he was completely useless. He acted as if he didn’t know what to say. So overall it was a terrible dinner.

We reserved a table for a party of 20 for a surprise birthday dinner and it was great overall. We were seated as promptly as possible and had a great area kind of secluded for our party to dine in together. The service was great and the food was excellent. I will definitely be going back for dinner, and appreciate that they accommodate large reservations.

We attended on Christmas day. It was packed. We utilized the online reservations two days prior. We did end up waiting about 45 minutes, but it was Christmas, we expected it. The waitress was exceptionally attentive, friendly, helpful, and prompt to take care of us; even though she was clearly busy. The food was truly awesome: chicken with artichokes, brussel sprouts, garlic mashed potatoes, and Italian Creme cake (lemon with raspberry topping--DELICIOUS!) was our food choices. We weren't disappointed, and enjoyed the leftovers the next day. Neither of us had been in years, but we won't make that mistake again. We'll be returning very soon. Even though the food was great, our waitress made the difference. She was very much compensated for being great. TIP YOUR SERVER WELL WHEN THEY DO GOOD WORK!!

Food was served at just above room temperature. One selection had the chicken
missing from the serving. I think the staff was over worked Christmas Day.

The server tried to fix the mistakes. The manager helped on the final bill.
Everyone was very friendly. The restaurant just needs to get everything
together to make it a great dining experience.

This was my first visit to the Buca in Louisville, KY. I have frequent the Columbus, OH location near the Blue Jackets Stadium, but I must say that every location has surpassed my expectations. I think I enjoy the food the most at the Buca, but the service runs a very close second. My friend and I held reservations for a Friday night, and as it turned out, we finished our prior engagement ahead of schedule. We made it to the Buca an hour early and asked for our reserved seats ahead of time. Although we had to wait for few minutes, the staff accommodated and delivered us a great table. All of this occurred mind you while parties the size of 35 people, 16 people, and 8 people, constantly entered the establishment . The Buca staff was appropriately trained and never hesitated when the location became packed. The staff is super helpful with finding the right choice for you on the menu. We ordered the small sampler and split the leftovers. Our waitress did not give us a guilt trip when we refused to order desert, but it was certainly our lost. It was a family friendly environment with huge tables and stumbling waitresses. We recommend you give yourself plenty of time to enjoy your visit, and remember to look for coupons that are posted for special discounts.

I️ made the reservation to celebrate a birthday and stated that in my reservation and reminded the waitress, however the request was ignored. They were out of lasagna at 6:30 which I found to be odd especially since it’s one of their signature dishes. Our food was cold and for the price paid I️t definitely was not worth I️t. By the end of our meal my husband, whose birthday we were celebrating, looked at me and said he couldn’t believe he was saying I️t, but he had no desire to return. We used to enjoy this restaurant, and I’m not sure if this was just a one time bad experience or if the restaurant has just declined.
