Service was ridiculously slow... for EVERYTHING ordered. Some food was barely warm. The 3 mixed drinks were TERRIBLE. Overcharged for a drink we did not order, they had no idea how to credit it off the check. The spaghetti was sitting in 1/3 of water!
It went from bad to worse in the THREE HOURS we were there.
Awful!

It was a great place to take kids because it was a little loud, the booths are private-ish, and they have a lots of kid friendly food options. Plus the adult food is delicious and the cocktail menu is nice!

The food was poor, the waiter was well intended but spoke over the guests.
It took 1.5 hours to get our food.

To be honest, it is a cute place, but the food is really so so but the decor is what makes it fun.
The service was fine, the cost was pretty high unless you are dining in a group where everyone likes the same food. It would be better if they had single meal options, instead of just family style. I was glad to get a reservation since it was Mother's Day.

Well, we’ll never go back . Food was okay but you get better at any local family owned Italian restaurant. The family style is “neat”... but does t improve the food . Our server did the best she good but you could tell she had a lot of tables because it took 45 minutes for my wife to get her first glass of wine .. really at that point I was done .. hope everyone else has a better experience than us .

We have been to a few of the Buca around the country. This was interesting because it was three levels. The salad and pasta was really good but the pizza was probably one of the worse theaters I have had in a long time. Our server, Kaitlin was totally outstanding. With all of this said I would return to Buca’s again

Typical Buca in that there was only two tables occupied in the room and we were seated directly next to each other causing both parties to talk over each other instead of giving each party some space so we could actually converse utilizing normal voice levels.

The server obviously did not want to be there so an other server had to compensate for the lack of service.

Our original server spent the most time with our table at check time.

The service was terrible from the minute we sat down. We were a party of 10, And I had one waitress, and she clearly could not handle it by herself. It even took a long time for someone to come over and greet us and take our drink orders. The food took a very long time, and so to the appetizers. And the quality of the food it was not good at all. We will not be returning to this restaurant.

We had made a reservation for 5:30 on a Saturday night, to which we had to wait until 5:50 to be seated as we watched other guests be seated before us. Our waitress was very friendly and made sure we got everything on a timely manner. While booking the reservation online we had requested a special anniversary dessert, however, the hostesses were confused/not aware and we did not have an anniversary dessert for us as requested. Slightly disappointing but the service and food was good.

This is a family style restaurant with large portions. There was only 2 of us. I recommend this place for people who doesn’t like seasoning (bland) food. We had chicken fettuccine, salad and cheese bread. The price of the meal was rounded off 67.00 for lunch.

Sadly- this was a really disappointing New Year's Eve dining spot. My husband and I had made a 10:00 PM reservation and of course were planning on ordering dinner. We were seated and then ignored for at least 15 minutes, before our server even approached the table. When he finally did, he acted surprised that we we wanted to order dinner. He said- " if you are going to order food- please do so quickly as the kitchen is going to be closing" We told him that we had a reservation with the intention to order food!! He then told us that we could order food. At that point- it was almost 10:30, so we opted out of dinner and ordered a pizza. It was average at best. He never apologized for this strange behavior, but seemed to be in a hurry to be done. We never experienced anything like this before. Imagine wanting to order dinner at a restaurant!!
Never going back to Buca- Pittsburgh location.

We were very disappointed in the food. The veal was tough, the salad wilted with too much dressing and the pasta wasn’t drained enough and was swimming in water. We did enjoy the chicken dish though.

Always enjoy the abundance of food; we order the large portions to have plenty to take home. Server was great. He was busy, kitchen was behind due to large groups, but he never let it affect his service to us.

We were Celebrating our 15 year wedding anniversary and I put that in the notes of the reservation. Our table was in the bar. They said we could not got to on an upper floor because it was filled with wedding parties. We were very disappointed. The restaurant is not what it used to be. The only redeeming quality was our service was great.

A nice casual restaurant with a good Italian menu. Best suited for groups willing to be served "family style". Prices reasonable in light of the amount of food served. Service polite and helpful. Better than many of the family chain restaurants.

Our food was great and our server did a great job. However, the air conditioning was out and it was extremely hot in the restaurant. We actually honored our reservation and stayed, and felt like management could have at least stopped by our table. We weren't offered free dessert or bread or pop or anything. When lots of people were walking in and leaving we actually stayed. It was our choice to stay but when you spend over $100 you'd think they could comp a coke for dealing with the heat.
