We had some drinks at the bar for happy hour and Jacob was a great server. We had dinner at the table and expected a huge portion of lemon chicken (similar to chicken piccata with capers) and was surprised to see three average size pieces. It was supposed to serve three but we had no problem sharing the three pieces. It was very well prepared and moist and tender. The antipasto salad had cheese, salami and vegetables and was huge and could easily serve three or even four. We asked for bread; it was not on the table but it was very good.

I work in the area and actually saw this place while stopped at the light. It’s hard to notice because it shares an entrance with Planet Hollywood so I decided to give it a try. I should start by say that the staff was amazing. Friendly, polite and courteous. I wish the food matched the experience I had with the staff. The chicken parm tasted like it was frozen food that was reheated and unfortunately the chicken was somewhat uncooked. I can’t say that I’ll be back for the food but I would definitely go back for the service. Maybe I’ll just have the pasta👍

Was by far and away one of the worst meals I’ve ever had. I’ve eaten in a buca in DC and was much better. Sausage appetizer was inedible. Hard as a rock. Meatballs tasted foul like they were old and frozen. Kids ordered pizza that has such a thick layer of cheese they were choking on it. Definitely do not recommend this place 🤮

The appetizers were absolutely delicious but the main dishes were practically inedible. The penne ala vodka had so much garlic you couldn’t taste anything else and it was gross. The meatballs were shared by 4 people all of which said they had no flavor and the eggplant Parmesan had the skin on, a pet pieve of mine, and was so tough we needed a steak knife to cut through it. Luckily we filled up on the appetizers but the bill was very high for inedible food.

I went in with a desire for eggplant parmesan.I looked at the menu and was tempted by two other items. They were shrimp fra diavolo and the meatball sandwich. The server recommended the shrimp fra diavolo. I was not disappointed. As a matter of fact, for a lunch dish I was full without clearing my plate. I enjoyed the spice and an adequate helping of shrimp.

we went to buca before a show. we did not make a reservation elsewhere, so they were one of the few available on short notice
the server was attentive to the fact that we were in a time crunch and serve us quickly
everything is family style and the portions are of good size
the food was good but certainly not gourmet
if you cannot get into one of the few top restaurants near the theatre consider buca

Our waitress was great -very attentive! All of our dishes were delicious: margarita pizza, baked rigatoni, chicken saltimbocca, chicken caesar salad! We had an 8pm show - and had plenty of time to get over to the theater. There was a coat check at the theater - so we were able to check our leftovers -bonus! Looking forward to coming back again!!

The waiter brought everything out late. He brought my kids food out first and then 15 mins later came the appetizers for the table. Then after we ate everything on the trio appetizer then he asked if we wanted the pasta dish. My kids had already ate by the time our food came. Horrible for a family to come to a family restaurant and not eat our entrees together.
