Food was overpriced and the server was not very nice. Got upset when we asked for clean plates because the ones given to us were dirty with visible food left over on them. We were also stuck in the side room by the bar that had no air conditioning even though there was plenty of other tables in the main dining area and we had a reservation. We eventually asked the hostess to move after sweating for a few minutes. The food is not bad, but for the price I would say skip this place. We ordered two large entrees, an app and a dessert and paid 150$ before tip.

Restaurant was quite dead for a Holiday Weekend. We made reservations, but a walk in came right behind us and was turned away. They were told they were no longer taking walk ins. We assumed the restaurant was booked because of this but there were at least 50 open tables when we walked in. We were seated all the way in the back with the only 3 parties there, was a bit noisy and cramped. Food and service from our server was phenomenal. I was surprised that an Italian restaurant can be out of spaghetti noodles and they ran out of sweet tea so we switched to waters mid meal. I assume they were understaffed. Meal was nice regardless but nothing special.

The waiter we had was terrible. Zero personality, didn't check on us, forgot stuff we asked for. The spaghetti and meatballs was more like a soup.. The sauce was very watery. The syltuffed shells were good but barely any sauce so we had to ask for extra.

Went here for Valentine’s Day and it was really nice especially considering they adhere to social distancing rules. Only every other table was offered so it was pretty quiet. Really good food and nice waiter.

The appetizers took forever and came out one at a time probably about 20 minutes in between each. All food was lukewarm at best when it got to our table. It reminded me why I stop eating here years ago. I thought it had changed but I see it has just gotten worse. Also a lot of the kitchen staff yelling at each other could be heard through the whole restaurant.

For an Italian restuarant you don't get much food. We ordered Limon Chicken for 5 there were 4 of us eating. We got 5 very same pieces of chicken came it a lemon caper sauce which was tastey. No sides. We ordered a salad for 3 and it was ample for 4. Had to request house bread. We won't be back

The service was not very good and $45 for a large bowl of chicken and pasta just seems expensive. Also the bathroom really needs attention. The urinals have permanent stains, the floor was slippery and felt greasy. Just not the best experience after dining here numerous times pre-COVID

Bill was our server and he was great. It took a long time to get food and drinks. We also went for Thanksgiving. They wanted to seat us (party of 2) in the back, freezing cold, at a table for 8. We ended up eating Thanksgiving dinner at the bar. Christmas dinner was okay. Ziti was super dry. Christmas dinner for 4 was roughly $300. Not worth it and probably won't go back.

As we walked into the lobby, I detected an odor. As we were escorted to our table the odor persisted. It's hard to describe the odor but it was not pleasant. When I visited the ladies room, I noticed there were 4 plastic air fresheners. They did not do much good. I think they have a drain problem and it should be investigated by hiring a plumbing company.

Good we delicious as always. Erica who helped with our reservation went above and beyond. Our waitress however was not having a good night. It started out with spilling our drinks all over which I get happens, but typically when a server does this they are very apologetic - we got oops it happens ??? Was not attentive and when we asked for something she seemed inconvenienced. It’s a shame to not give 5 stars to one of our favorite places to dine.

This is such a special place - we were so glad to pop in for a social-distancing lunch with four old friends. Our waiter was just a delight.... from fresh coffee refills and endless fresh iced teas to MULTIPLE take-home containers (thank you!), he provided outstanding service. And WOW on the 1/2 lb. meatballs and sauce, and the same for the Chicken Marsala. No place can top the ambiance of Bucca, and the same goes for the food. Thanks as well to Justin the manager for stopping to say hello and check on our meals. It's so nice to see this landmark restaurant still going strong!

Although a manager fixed our issues, server gave us noticeably dirty plates, didn’t refill drinks often until a manager stepped in and saw that we and others tables weren’t getting proper service. Part of my party ordered the Margherita pizza and when it came out it was really salty to the point that it didn’t taste like anything. Manager replaced it and took it off the bill.

Food is very inconsistent at the Buca location. Service is mediocre, at best. When you charge $25 for a “mixed green salad” and $30 for a pepperoni pizza, prices you should be able to expect good food. Food is hit or miss here, with sub-service, at fine-dining prices. Not coming back

Christmas Eve dinner reservations were at 7:30. Showed up at 7:28 and we waited over an hour to be seated. We got seated at 8:30. When we were seated we did not get greeted or have drinks for over 15 minutes. Ridiculous. Bad management. Our server ended up being good but poor management for Christmas Eve.
