Way to long a wait - 1/2 hr with reservation. Then took 20 minutes for someone to take our order
The choices on the menu are for either 3 or 5 people. Food is served family style. You can pretty much guarantee a doggy-bag to go. Our two choices were delicious and, yes, we had a doggy bag for the three of us as we ordered two entrees. Both very tasty. I did prefer the chicken dish over the spaghetti and meatballs(not so happy with the meatballs).
The ironic thing is that Buca clearly advertises that they have an exceptionally clean bathrooms. The ladies room was not dirty, but for sure not a bathroom I would advertise as "above board"It is a fun place to dine once in awhile.
Sat at the bar. Bartender stated it was his first day and he only had 1 hour of training. Very disorganized. Other staff members had to go behind the bar to assist. It was chaos.
Restaurant did not have two of the entrees on the menu at 7:30 p.m. - this was unsatisfsctory,
Horrible food and service, gluten free chicken was the size of about 4 bites
waited almost a half hour for drinks and then waited 2 hours for food and it was cold when it came
We got one of the specials, Shrimp Scampi. It was 95% spaghetti with small shrimp, and had no capers, artichokes, nothing else except parsley. Luckily, we ordered a side of sausage and peppers, and I had asked for a side of red sauce~which helped. Anyway, the server was working a whole room with two tables of 8+ and several booths. He did his best, but service was slow from the bar and kitchen. It took too long to get a drink and we were not served dinner for an hour after we got there.
Bread was not warm, only could eat the top, the bottom was rock hard. Ordered the chicken parmigiana, little did I know all it was was chicken cheese and sauce no pasta was served with this dish very disappointing. I can see why this place is going downhill not very busy
Celebrated TWO birthdays and they made it even more celebratory!
Great food, slow service
horrible service !
I would never come here again! When pasta comes to your table it should be steaming hot especially when the place is not busy and you only have two tables to serve outside. Host was extremely rude I would never ever dine here again. I have fined at many bucas throughout the world never experienced one like this one !
Server Chelsea was amazing and customer service was awesome!
I enjoyed a large bowl of piping hot Minestrone Soup, which was terrific on a chilly night. My server Allison was fantastic!
I just came in for a bowl of soup, in which I chose the Tomato Basil, that I enjoyed. It was very hot in temperature, which is just how a bowl of soup should be served. Thank you kitchen! My server Allison, was very friendly and terrific.
Amazing service from our server and the food was yummy and plentiful. My boyfriend is a very picky eater but enjoyed all of the items ordered! Will visit again soon!
It was amazing!
The food was just as good as ever but there was only one waiter so it took a long time to order and even longer to get our food.
The food was great! The drinks, specifically the Martini, was half-full and yet they still charged $13 each. It was a real disappointment to an otherwise excellent meal. So for two martini's each, my wife and I spent $52, which seems excessive. Also the restaurant was out of Belvedere and Grey Goose citing "a busy week". Someone needs to monitor the par levels better, because this should never happen.
The food was tasty and fit everyone’s palate. Nothing left to take home.
We had reservation but weren't actually seated until almost 30 minutes later. Restaurant was very crowded with others waiting to be seated. Our food service was great. Waiter was prompt to greet us and was very super friendly and efficient! Food was very good even though we didn't get what we originally intended because restaurant was out of mozzarella, meatballs, marinara, and other items. We understood since it was at the end of a very busy day. The waiter and other staff made it a positive experience!
Our family is Italian. This is not Italian food. It's okay tasting, but the food is not what it states it will be from the menu. The "baked ziti" was clearly not baked and barely had any mozzarella and needed more sauce. The chicken marsala had a strange, very sweet sauce on it, almost like an asian-inspired sauce. The caesar salad was meh - not very flavorful. Dessert was actually not good - tiramisu had NO espresso or liquor within it, and cannolis had Hershey's syrup on top. Service was slow and it took almost an hour to get our food. Sorry, this will be my last time at Buca.
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.
My family and I had turkey dinner here on Thanksgiving. The food was delicious, the service was great and the ambiance is very family oriented. Had a great experience.
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.
Great thanksgiving day here is Scottsdale. Service was a little slow due to holiday crowd.
Waitress’ were wonderful .... food is always great, fun time for large groups and service is efficient
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!
This is a great place for large groups. We were 12 people and we had a great time.
It was a great night out for My Wife and I anniversary dinner. Everything was really good with the best service. Open table helped out with the reservation for 2 and was ready in 20 minutes. Thank you and we will be returning soon.
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.
We will never return
Just needs a good cleaning and the AC wasn't really working (server said it's always really hot in the restaurant). Floors were so sticky - very gross.
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.)
