Bread wasn’t hot and came out late
Everything was very good except they brought the salad and pasta dishes at the same time. It would be nice to have 10 minutes to enjoy my salad before bringing the pasta.
Good food, good value , great service and fun ambiance make Bucas our “Go to” for family celebrations😊
I like the Rigatoni Pasta with Marinara Sauce. Also a Mixed Green Salad with the Italian Dressing.
They accommodated our large group very well, and the server was very friendly and helpful
We came to share a double birthday, and I’d even mentioned it in the reservation. Unfortunately the service for most of the time was extremely poor. Towards the end another waiter helped us, and he was wonderful. He asked the table next to us if anyone was celebrating anything, of course they had a birthday, and no one had done that with us. One of our orders came out wrong, so this gentleman fixed it right away. The server before him couldn’t get or drink order down correctly and when something wasn’t available, she waited 20 minutes to notify us. Overall it was just okay.
Server nice but hard to get a hold of. He was bartending and serving at the same time. They shouldnt do that.
Our basic meal of spagetti and meatballs was okay, except the picture in the menu had 3 meatballs and we received two. Oh well.
As we sat and ate our meal we noticed that NO ONE was cleaning the tables of those that had eaten and left. By the time we finally finished there were at least 5 booths/tables with dirty utensils sitting on the tables waiting to be removed. We also saw a number of the same (utensils left on tables) in oother parts of the restuarant as we departed. This is not an environment conducive for enjoyable eating!!
In addition the bathrooms are in need of immediate attention. The hardware needs to be replaced with better working equipment and the bathroom inself should be cleaned/picked up after on a more regular basis than it seems to be right now.
I would not go running back to here in the immediate future.
Very thing was good our server (Abbey) was very good very nice sweet no complaining here overall good time with friends and family
It was our son's 18th birthday and we have been going to this restaurant for years but something has definitely happened to management .........the entire staff from the rude front desk agent to stressed out barman to our very arrogant server were all extremely unprofessional and unfriendly and under qualified !!!!!! No manager on duty....the place has gone wild !!!! We weren't even offered an icecream treat for my son's birthday. Our group of 11 people left disappointment by the way we were treated and will never go back.......the staff was horrific !!!!
They were not serving certain items because the server said the kitchen was too busy, then the food came out cold and bland. Server was standing and talking instead of checking in on his tables. Usually they are a lot better, just terrible this visit.
Very poor experience. New Year's Eve -- we made a reservation, they confirmed, we arrived a few minutes early and were seated fairly quickly. But -- it took at least 10 minutes for a waiter to appear and after that an hour for the food to arrive and one of our orders was wrong. All along all the waitstaff and hostess were talking about how slammed they were with phone orders. The phone orders seemed to take precedence over everyone who thought ahead, made reservations and expected a decent meal. Never again.
My experience was awful. This restaurant is not clean. The staff seem overwhelmed. Although the portions are large, the prices are high for the quality of the food. I would dine at Olive Garden or Maggiano’s.
Christmas celebration for extended family and friends. Our server Abbey was fantastic. She had good recommendations.
Open table mobile does not have easy cancel... The place is closed for technical reason, cannot book a replacement since I have an on going reservation... Bad app...
The Manager Candice was rude and said they don’t trust open table and it always messes up their reservations
After the Stanford football game, I took the family here for some family style pasta and salad. Very consistent. Nice friendly service.
We had the Thanksgiving dinner menu and it was very good. The food came very quick but the salad that was separate took a little bit. Didn't see the waiter very often; restaurant was very busy and I think the waiter was new. We enjoyed our time there.
The spaghetti here is my favorite. Unfortunately I think they changed the marinara sauce. Or maybe it was just prepared wrong. Also when the dish was served the noodles were hard and pasty. We asked for a new one. The noodles were better on the second one but, the sauce was mushy. The meatballs and chicken limone were good. We might try a different Buca next time. Because, if that's how the sauce is supposed to be. We won't be ordering again. The server was very nice and understanding about it. I can't say the same about the hostess, she was rude as if she hated her job. When we checked in for our reservation she acted as if we were bothering her. She told us other reservations we're being checked in and we had to wait. And she was acting like that with other patrons. Some she even turned away. One couple was told no walk-ins being taken. While another couple was told walk-ins weren't being accepted till 830pm. At that time was about 710pm. Very unfriendly.
They try to do too much at once. Everything is slow, orders get mixed up. Food is OK.
