The food is always great and the sangrias. I have ate here a few times but this one time we had an unpleasant experience. One of the people in our part placed a to go order at 9:05. We were in the middle of eating and the restaurant closes at 9:00. Working as a server in the past I understand how annoying that can be. When the server put the order in a kitchen worker yelled “the kitchen is F-bomb closed” so loud we could hear it at our table. Not the best way to end a meal.

The area around our booth was dirty, I did not get a knife to eat with until someone paused long enough for us to ask for utensils, and the waitress did not bring clean dinner plates until we made a special request. Additionally, the sauce for our meal was extremely thin and bland.

Tasty food and wonderful host and server. They were knowledgeable and friendly and Willy to give their opinions when asked a trait that’s missing in many places. The food was perfect and quantity is very large. We could get a gluten-free pasta that makes you wonder why get regular if you have an option.

Not impressed by the food at all yes you get big portions but they also cost a lot more than a normal dish I suggest sharing but was surprised that the food was very bland and the extra chicken we ask to add cost 5$ and it was obviously frozen chicken and there was very few pieces of it not worth the $

I asked for the kitchen table and fortunately, it was available!
Waitress very nice and attentive. It's noisy in the kitchen but it wasn't a problem.
I'd rate value at 4* but only because we had a $15 off coupon. If no coupon, I'd give 3*.

We went to Buca for my birthday, and the waitress we had mentioned she was pretty new, so we were patient with her. The bartender was also helping her by serving us. The food was good, but I honestly feel like the service we received was worth a $90 bill.

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.
