The food is overpriced. I purchased the small version of a cheese pizza and it was $15.99. It was paper thin and not enough for the three people they advertised it for. A salad cost $8.99. Vocellis is a better value than this place.
Everything was great from making reservations to arriving on night requested. Food and service was excellent. We all had an enjoyable evening
Tables of 6 were packed in small rooms. No room to breath. It was uncomfortable.
Delicious food, large, family-style meals.
Reservation process was irrelevant. They saved 2 4-top tables for a party of 11, despite confirming details via phone. Host brought us to table and left us there with only 8 chairs, just kept saying these tables were saved in computer for us. Eventually someone brought a leaf to expand the tables, we still had to ask for an extra chair and 5 more sets of flatware. They surely didn't seem prepared for our reservation.
Wonderful food!! Very fast service! We ordered drinks and our meals and before we even finished the drinks, our food was served to us.
Had an 11am reservation. First table seated. Service started out well but once the food arrived we never saw our waitress again. We received no refills on water or drinks. Another waitress in the area finally offered to clear our table. When our waitress finally surfaced she was rude. We had a party of 11 and had a good bit of leftovers. We asked for take out containers and she brought two. We then asked for more and when she returned with them she asked if the amount of containers was good enough for us. There were only a few tables with patrons the entire time we were there. Not sure why the waitress was so inattentive and rude. Service was also very slow
Keep in mind- family style portions. Be sure you like who you are going with enough to share.
With that being said, the food is good. We got a large bowl of pasta, a salad, bread, and a mozzerella triangles app. All were al a carte but we shared and had some to take home. Large shareable portions with a price to match- it can get expensive. Drinks are good as well, more on the expensive side. Beer is pretty expensive.
We sat on the first floor. There are multiple levels with the bathroom being past and almost through the kitchen (?) on the second floor. There are a lot of stairs which may not be suitable for some. We did not explore the specialty rooms or tables, I believe they are on the third floor.
The decor is random. There are many pictures on the walls- which give you a lot to talk about and look at. Those who are overwhelmed easily would have anxiety though.
Our server, Jessica, was bubbly and adorable. She was helpful and very sweet. Although we did not have the opportunity (or reason) to speak with the manager, he was present in the bar area. He didn't appear to be doing much (interacting with customers, helping out, etc) but hanging around the bar area and interacting with the female employees. I feel he could have been way better utilized on a Saturday night.
Nevertheless, we really enjoyed our night. Quick seating, great service, good food.
The food was tasty, hot and very plentiful. Service was attentive and fast. Pleasant evening with good food and good friends.
We had a great time! The food was fantastic and the service was commendable, as I had 6 teenagers with me. I was surprised when the bill came at how little it cost me to feed the 7 of us.
Excellent service! We had a party of 7 and were a little indecisive. Our server was patient and helped us navigate the menu.
Went to Bucca on an off day&time. The food was good but the place was really cold. They had temp heaters in the room to heat the place. It made for a long wait for our food as folks sat with jackets around the table. Additionally, they squeezed the few of us into very tight tables as they tried to only use a small portion of the tables. It made to a interesting atmosphere.
Celebrated New Years Eve with friends. Food was good and atmosphere was great!
This was our 2nd time at this restaurant. We came down with our son and girlfriend to watch the Pittsburgh Steelers play on New Year's eve and had made reservations before leaving Canada. We didn't want to miss out of a great meal by not making reservations. The waitress was so very polite and happy. She had said this her first time wearing her Steelers jersey to work. She might make it a habit so they keep on winning.
The service at Buca is outstanding. Our server was very friendly, efficient and engaging with our table. She made our early New Years Eve dinner very special!
We have been to this location several times. This past summer with a large party, that included out off town guests , after a Pirate game, Buca was able to accommodate us and offered us flawless service. Thank you
Food was very tasty. We had a large group and our server did an excellent job!
Shannon our waitress was the best!!!
The food was good but not the best Italian food I have had but I enjoyed it. There was a problem with the heating in the restaurant on a very cold day in Pittsburgh
Typically a fun, kitschy spot for dinner. However, this experience had us tripping over a space heater in the middle of the dining room floor and a server that was clueless. We even had the pleasure of seeing "Santa" drinking at the bar before he began strolling through the restaurant. Disappointing.
We had 8 people and were seated in a large booth. It was too crowded.
Reservations don't mean a thing. Three months prior to our dinner which was a small family reunion with family arriving from all over as far as Seattle, I made reservations requesting the Pope room. I got confirmations 3 times. However, they over booked that room at the same time 3 times. Then they stuck our family in a back room corner crammed in for our reunion. The manager did not care it was an attitude as if to say take it or leave it. Our waitress Jen was amazing though and brought fun and life to our situation. The manager however needs to learn some people skills! Upon looking at reviews after our event I found that this is a common practice for this Buca. Management in FL needs to take a look at this guy! Confirmed reservations should mean something! Our reunions will move on next time.
They did not have my reservation even though the restaurant had already called me to confirm. The service was terrible and no one apologized to us.
We had the most amazing server, Shannon, who not only made we were well taken care of but also took my goddaughters to tour he kitchen and get their picture taken for the wall and gave them ice cream. We couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful holiday luncheon. The food was amazing, the server was the best ever and we will definitely be back for more occasions.
We tecueved excellent Service and the food was awesome.
This is a great place to eat a lot of food. Family style means very large portions. Our waitress was awesome.
All we wanted was a delicious meal with respectful service and that is exactly what we got.
Thanksgiving was perfect.
We had Thanksgiving dinner here. The food was good and so was the service. However, there must have been something wrong with their heating system as the place was frigid. They had space heaters in our area, but this didn't really help. Too bad that they didn't have this fixed for Thanksgiving day.
Arrived and out table was ready through Open Table.... what a great app!! Both of us Ordered the chicken Parmesan and it was absolutely delicious! We could have ordered just one and split it because we took home so much food that we will be eating chicken Parm for a few days. We love visiting Buca! They never disappoint - service was fantastic!
We made a reservation on Open Table, and checked in 20 minutes early. Our party of 4 was all present and sat waiting in the lobby. The restaurant CALLED my cell after our reservation time to see if we were still coming. It was ridiculous and showed me that the host appeared to have
no idea what was going on. The evening was busy, but I've seen it busier. Food took longer than usual - and we were sat in a small rear eating area with a large, loud birthday celebration. There were electric heaters everywhere. Although it was light up night in Pittsburgh - a busy time - the restaurant was less than average in performance. Our server was very nice - but also had to be reminded about items more than once. I'm hopeful this was an anomaly and will definitely be back - it's a seasonal staple in our household - but if it keeps up, we'll find someplace new.
Buca is a fun place! Lots of fun things to see and awesome food!!
The food was great and our server was excellent! We had three young children with us and she accommodated their every request. Thank you!
Great service! Family always likes coming here.
We really enjoyed our time. Portions were huge. Our waiter was excellent and quite attentive! Only minor draw back was that the room was very warm. Air conditioning didn't seem to be working. Nevertheless we had a great time and plan on returning again.
Buca is slipping. The food is inconsistent. Some dishes are really good while others come without enough sauce or slightly over cooked. And we weren't provided with water unless we asked.
Service was average to poor at best, took our server a long time to ask us if we wanted drinks (15-20 min). We didn't get the right order and when they tried to fix it they delivered us raw undercooked chicken. Other food was just average. I wouldn't go back.
Great service and the food was delicious!
For a routine Italian meal out, fully acceptable. Table service is good. Menu best suited for a larger group.
Previously had good experiences here in the past. The lack of quality in this visit was unexpected and disappointing.
Solid experience for my mom's birthday party
