There was a bit of a wait, even with a reservation, but the food, service, and atmosphere were wonderful. We enjoyed visiting for a family dinner on my daughter's birthday.

The food and drinks were good but the service was lacking. Our server took a while to come check on us periodically. But we had had a roudy crowd and they were accommodating.

Although we bad a reservation the restaurant was packed and we had to wait one half an hour for a table. Service was slow to they had to comp us bread to make up for the delays. Food was OK but nothing special or worth coming back for.
Really wasn't great value for the money. Better Italian restaurants around.

We went for thanksgiving dinner.. The food was lukewarm and they did replace it with food that was a little warmer, but not really hot enough, although at that point, w didn't complain further. To add insult to injury, the ceiling started leaking heavily onto my husband's hand and power wheelchair control. When we tried to move the wheelchair, it wouldn't move at first and we thought maybe it had shorted out do to the water. This happened just as they were delivering our replacement order. My husband is disabled and very easily upset. He told the waitress he would never come back and she apologized , as did the manager who was delivering our food, but we were not offered any discount or comp, which we could hardly believe. What terrible customer service.

We went on Thanksgiving and we had not been in a while as we don't live near one anymore. The kids items were 7.99 EACH - that's so 15 years ago! - and the food was just ok - the antipasta salad was very good, but it was very busy with holiday traffice, the water tasted like it was straight from the sewer, it was hot as hell, it was very expensive which was surprising and it was my husbands 40th birthday and our 15 year anniversary on the same day...and there was no mention of anything - it took FOREVER to get help most of the time - which we just wanted silverware or water and the waitress was indeed slammed - very nice, but it seems you would want to give her/everyone more help on a holiday - my kids thought it was cool - too bad we won't be back whether we live far or near. Get a grip BDP.

We had friends in town from Canada. We were looking for a place to have fun, eat good food, drink wine and laugh out loud! The evening was great! First time we had been back to Bucca in several years. Not sure why we waited so long, but we will definitely be going back!

Food and service were good although, the server seemed to have too many tables and we had to get someone else to process the check. Also, a birthday was scheduled through open table, mentioned to hostess and server and nothing was done about it. We have been to Bucca on several occasions (in other states) and this is the first time that a birthday was not recognized.
Bucca was the birthday boy's choice and we were sadly disappointed that they chose not to help us celebrate. : ( Kind of bummed as the bill was around $300....they could have sprung for a piece of cake.

Our server was horrible. We weren't greeted for 10 minutes and he said, "have you been helped?" We said no and he said, "ok I'll do it. What do you want to drink ?". No welcome, no explanation of menu (we'd been there before) he disappeared and other servers brought everything . He never checked on us. It took way too long to get everything. We told him we had a birthday and he didn't tell anyone. Someone else brought our dessert without a candle or anything. Someone in our party went and found the general manager and even he did not come to our table. Gave us a $30 discount for 6 people. I usually love this restaurant. This was my first time at this location. And I was disappointed.

Favorite place of Mom and Dad. Get consistently excellent home style food with a great server named Aaron. The walls tell the story of many a NJ and NYer that visited the Italian neigbhorhood places. It brings back great memories. Food good and priced right, large portions, always fresh and great services. And a good bar selection but stick with the house Chianti, it is just right.

This was a disappointing experience. Our server brought dirty plates 5 times before everyone in our group of 5 had a clean plate to eat off of. The servings were smaller than the previous dinner we had at this location in March. The bill was high for what we got.

Our server was great and very accommodating, but the food and drink truly fell short. My brother ordered some version of a Moscow Mule, and found that it didn't have any ginger beer. When we asked for some, we were told they used ginger syrup, and once more was added it was better. My Italian margarita tasted mostly of sour mix, which was a bummer considering the $15 price tag. The antipasti salad was the star of the show, being the only tasty food we ordered. My boyfriend and I got the eggplant parmesan and I couldn't cut through it with my knife because the eggplant was slightly undercooked. We both thought it lacked flavor, and I only ate it because I was too hungry to send it back. My mom and brother split the chicken Marsala and neither of them came close to finishing, which is saying a lot because my brother eats everything. I tried a bit and it was extremely sweet (I know Marsala wine is sweeter, but this was beyond anything I'd ever tasted before.)

Full for Mother's Day. Had to move to patio as it was so, incredibly loud inside, we almost left. Service was slow. Food was lukewarm and not very good. They told us to keep our appetizer plates since they were running out (we appreciated the tip but, really!?). We will not be back.

One of the worst experiences. The waiter Colin made and inappropriate joke about the meatballs when we informed him we were there for a bachelorette dinner. We had to get other waiters to go and find him for refills on water. After and hour and half of waiting with still no food we decided to leave. That's when the waiter decided he would kick into high gear and follow us and try to accuse of running out in the bill. We had ordered 3 alcoholic drinks we were going to pay for in the front since we couldn't never find our waiter. And he had the worst attitude and just being so disrespectful. It was truly the worst experience ever. He really should be ashamed of how he treated customers. I totally get when places are super busy but with most tables being empty it made no sense why it took over and hour and a half to still not get our food. If I could do less than a star I would.

We had a large party of 11 but had open reservation. When seated took 30 minutes to get order for drinks, ordered garlic bread because daughter was starving. Asked for bread on 3 different occasions & did not bring until after meal with to go box this was supposed to be the free bread. Took about 1 hour & 30 minutes to get food. The food was cold & some people sent food back to be heated up. Mgr stated short handed after the fact that we were complaining. If they would have told us up front we would have been understanding but we could have received drinks while we were waiting. Lack of communication was disappointing. I am easy going if you tell me what is happening. Communication could have made this a much better experience.

This was my second attempt at trying this restaurant unsuccessfully.

Disaster #1: First time was on Christmas Day 2016. Had a 4 PM reservation, we arrived on time and were told we could be seated but wouldn't get our food for at least 2 hours. So, on Christmas, with the kids, we had to leave and find another restaurant that had availability. Had to drive 30 minutes to find one. Not a great Christmas dinner experience.

Disaster #2 - February 11, 2017: We wrote off the first experience and figured we'd try it again for my husband's 40th birthday. This time there were 6 of us with a 5:45 PM reservation on a Saturday. We were seated promptly but that's where the service ended. Our waiter took forever to take our drink order, then we waited almost 10 minutes to get them. Then, a few minutes later he returned to take our order. 1 appetizer (garlic bread), a pizza and two entrees. I also told the waiter we absolutely had to be out the door no later than 7:15 PM. He said no problem. At 6:30 PM I had to ask another waitress (since our waiter was MIA) to check on our garlic bread that still hadn't arrived. We were seated 45 minutes and still hadn't received our appetizer. The restaurant was not even busy yet. When our waiter arrived, I asked him when we could expect our food because we had show tickets and had to leave soon. He put his hands up in the air and said "I don't know what to tell you." That's when we lost it. We got the manager, who turned out to be useless and 1 hour after our arrival, still without receiving our meal, we got up and left.

Due to the timing of our event and lack of food, we ended up going to Burger King. Awesome experience for a 40th birthday. I will never return. I will never recommend this place. Unless you have 3 hours to kill and a whole lot of patience, it's just pasta.
