Waiter disappeared on us..we had had to flag down other waiters in that area to get refills and items we needed for our meal (clean plates, crushed red pepper)

The only negative would be the wait. The Purpose of the reservation is to be ready to eat at the time the reservation is at. I understand that it is a holiday but the Hostess told us that It was about a 15 minute delay which was okay! However My reservation was for 8:15pm and we didn’t get sat until 9:20pm. Which was weird because people who went in after us got seated in a shorter amount of time... other than that, food was great, server was amazing and definitely coming back.. let’s just hope its not that long of a wait again.

The food was amazing as always, but our server not so much. He took a very long time getting around to our table and he kept having to apologize over and over for the lack of not doing something. we had to ask for bread that was supposed to come with our meal multiple times. and when we asked for our ticket it was wrong and took about 20 minutes for him to get it straightened out. i also requested that there was a birthday celebration that evening but nothing was ever said or done about it.

Don’t understand the appeal of this place. Food is mediocre and way overpriced. Too much garlic, not nearly enough other flavors. Sunday “Sugo” “bolognese” is marinara with meat. Decor is way over the top.

Avoid this place. There are much better Italian places around The Woodlands.

I reserved a table for three and met my out of state guests for a chance to have a nice meal and conversation. We were seated next to a table for about twenty celebrating a middle aged man's birthday. The review chart on this page asked about noise. The loudest description you allowed was "Energetic." What we endured was to Energetic was like comparing a fire cracker to a howitzer. By yelling at the top of our lungs we were barely able to give our order to the waiter. Conversation across the table required shouting. This painful racket lasted our entire time there and was still going strong when we left. I felt like a fool for having brought my friends there.

Best for larger family gatherings. We ordered the trio appetizer, which included fried cheese, fried macaroni and cheese, and calamari. Fried mac/cheese was the best of the three. The calamari was very greasy. For the main course we had chicken parmesan and spaghetti and meatballs. Chicken parm was not very seasoned and relatively very bland. Chicken was moist and not overcooked. Meatballs were excellent. I felt for two adults and two kids that it was relatively more expensive than most restaurant due to the family style dining.

This was our first time ever eating out for Christmas 🎄 and my family LOVED it! The noise level was high due to it being Christmas but that was to be expected. The food was so delicious and tasted homemade. The service was impeccable. The value was so great! To feed 3 people from one plate! Wow! That never happens! We were too full to try the desserts but there will Be a next time for that!

The food quality at Buca seems to have declined quite a bit from the last time we ate here. Our salad was pretty tasteless and several of the dishes resembled something that came from the microwave. Our server was friendly, but never returned to check in on the table or refill our wine. I’d give them some leeway considering this was Christmas Eve, and they were busy. But I don’t think we’ll be returning anytime soon.

Everything was great! We visited for Christmas Eve dinner and asked if we’d like to sit at a kitchen table. It was so fun to see all the food being prepared and being shown each dish being sent to tables. I have a new appreciation for everything that goes on behind the scene. Food was delicious and loved the family sized portions. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I decided to go here after not having been here in so long. We liked it the first time we came, but we just hadn't gotten around to coming back. I'm glad we did because the food was really good. We ordered chicken cannelloni and it was delicious. The portion size was just right too. Our server was very friendly and the staff were pleasant as well. We will definitely go back and recommend it.

We chose to eat here for our twins birthday as we choose this place for many special occasions and had a horrible experience. We had reservation and were not seated for 30 minutes even though the restaurant was almost completely empty and had the most horrible service ever. When we were brought food it had to sit there 10 minutes because we had no plates even though we asked for them when the food was brought. Ordered a pizza with extra pepperoni and was brought a bank pizza because the server though we ordered extra pepper. We won’t be back.
