Loved our experience here! I made reservations for a party of 16 for a Saturday at 1:15pm, to celebrate my son's 6th birthday. When we arrived, we arrived right at our reservation time, we were seated within two minutes. We ordered 3 large pastas and 2 large pizzas for 10 adults and 6 kids, everything came out within 15-20 mins and everything was so delicious! The amount of food was more than we expected, we had plenty of left overs, we could probably do 2 pastas instead of the 3 next time, but I didn't mind the extra food cause I wanted to eat more of it later. The waiter was amazing, he was very attentive and friendly, wish that I could remember his name. Overall, I would come here again, great service, great food, great prices, and great for families.

We were seated in semi-outdoor area that was very cold. Asked if heater could be turned on and was told, “No one else is asking for it.” We were reseated after a short wait and I noticed the heaters in the area we vacated we then all on.

Even though we had reservations we still had to wait for our special table. The noise level was very noisy with a lot of celebrations.

We've had better food at Buca and some of the items lacked flavor.

We hoped to have an amazing Thanksgiving dinner, but that did not happen. It started with our cheese bread appetizer showing up after our first entree. Then, our order came out wrong, and then our waiter disappeared. We had to call over the manager after 20 minutes to take it back. Then it was another 20 minutes and we had finished our meal when we had to grab someone else’s waiter to get our check and cancel the order they screwed up but never brought back. Worst service ever. Ruined our Thanksgiving dinner.

This comes off like a chain restaurant and is very, very noisy. The food is much like Olive Garden but much more expensive. There were constant explosions of some version of "Happy Birthday," (there must have been at least 6 birthdays while we were there on a Sunday evening) with all the wait staff singing and clapping. This is not fine Italian dining.

Reasonably priced family style dining. We had the chicken and sausage ziti and the chopped antipasti salad . The small size was perfect for three people. The three of us couldn't even finish our shared piece of tiramisu ! It was enormous and delicious.

Everything was good except the dish that we ordered had one third of the mussels close so we couldn't eat them. They should not have served unopened mussels. One or two maybe Ok but there must have been about ten.

Especially love this place for their Take Out service: They are so thoughtful to pack cold foods completely separate from hot food, to make sure everything is well sealed and leak-proof, and have it all ready to carry out when promised.

They give generous portions, add separate container for extra sauce if you request that ( at no charge ) and make everything look pretty as a picture ! They even add a bag of fresh, warm from the oven Italian Bread so you might as well forget that dieting you planned for today !

Some of our favorite menu choices have been:

Chicken Marsala: Tender Chicken Breast with thick sliced Mushrooms in a sweet wine reduction sauce reminiscent of teriyaki sauce - really addictive flavor here !

Italian Meatballs in Marinara Sauce: Tender and flavorful, half-pounders in a naturally sweet fresh tomato sauce which I'm guessing is made with onions, garlic and basil. A side order of 3 of these big boys is $16.99. Slice into thick slabs and place on their fresh Italian Bread for instant Meatball Sandwich enjoyment.

Italian Chopped Antipasto Salad: I like to get the Hot Peppers on the side. A beautiful bounty of Italian Genoa Style Salami, Sharp Cheese, Black and Green Olives, Radicchio, Tomatoes, a touch of Red Onion, and very fresh and crisp Iceberg Lettuce served with a distinctive Vinaigrette Dressing ( If you are carrying out, get the dressing on the side and things will stay fresh and crisp. )

Fried Calamari: Light and Crisp, good with just a dash of salt, sprinkled with Parmesan Cheese, or with either their regular or Spicy Marinara Sauce. Try both sauces or combine them for medium spiciness.

Excellent food! Very slow service. We waited 25 minutes before we received bread or our drink order (which was one glass of sangria). And they serve family-style, which is great, but which also means that I was out of luck for a small side salad to accompany my main dish.

This was not our first time -- we used to go at least twice a month -- couldn't remember why we stopped going so we went Sunday night. Made a reservation and requested the bar area, since we were just a party of 2. Didn't take long to remember why we stopped going so often -- loud and salty.

We know it is a family restaurant and expect noise but, parents not controlling their screaming 4, 6 & 7 year olds was completely unbelievable. The 4 year old's piercing scream and stomping on her seat literally shook my booth seat 2 behind her. The salad was overly salty -- and it used to be a favorite. 1 small salad no beverages, loss of hearing and slow to bring our plates and water, made for an unpleasant dinner experience all for $25 + tip...it will be a while before we return, if we return. Do they really need to seat kids in the bar?

Great service and delicious food! Also, it was nice being seared a little before my reservation (we were early). Plus the hostess seated us in the back bar area which offered roomy booths (and it was quieter) which was ideal for my elderly grandmother. Lastly, the photo gal was a nice touch so in all, it was a great visit.

Lots of empty tables but we were seated in a corner next to a table for a horrible screaming baby and near a loud party of 20. I asked if we could move and never got an answer. Horrible meal. Could not carry on any conversation with my guest. For headache from screaming baby (worst screaming baby I've ever seen encountered).

I have no problem with parents bringing children but pleaae don't force guests to have their meals ruined.

I'd this happened again in would just leave.
