Great food, service and experience. Had enough leftovers to have lunch the next day.

I used to love this place, but so disappointed at my last visit. Pasta was overcooked and noises had extra water left in them, made sauce ruby and very bland. Garlic bread had huge chunks of garlic, so much so it made the bread basically inedible. It's just so sad that a fun restaurant the whole family used to love is a thing of the past we went be returning to

Appetizers were great. Portions for huge. Sangria was nice. We had to send glasses back as they were dirty. But overall a good experience.

We had a nice family dinner at Buca. All of our food was hot, except for our spaghetti. Our server quickly resolved the issue and we enjoyed the evening.

We were seated quickly. Food was good. Took over an hour to get food!

The booth in which we were seated had food crusted on the back. I had to move close to the edge of the seat so that I didn't touch it with my back. The stuffed mushroom appetizer was literally a joke. It was 12 small button mushrooms with some mysterious white mixture on top. I can't believe I spent that much on an appetizer of poor quality. The drinks tasted watered down and they were served in warm glasses. Overall, it was an unpleasant experience and waste of money. I understand why it was the only place in town without a wait on a Saturday night.

Terrible! We arrived early because we where in the area, there where 2 people at the podium who where unfriendly. Told us we would be seated in a half hour is the best they could do. Which was fine. So I told her we would go to the bar and have a cocktail while we wait. She told us we couldn’t, the bar tender was to busy to serve us because he was waiting on that room plus the drinks. So we sat back down and waited, then a couple came in 15 min after us with no reservations, put their names in and went and sat at the bar. So we followed and again she told us we couldn’t go sit at the bar, but did anyway. The couple who arrived after us got seated before us and when we questioned it we where told we needed to wait 15 more min until our reservation time. Then we where sat at the table behind us in the bar area. I do have to say the bartender did a great job keeping us happy even though it was sweetest day and he was the only one scheduled in that room. I don’t think we will be returning to this location after this meal. We live in the area and go here on a regular basis, each time it gets worse. This was the last straw , the hostess it the first person to greet guests as they walk in, they should be friendly and want customers to spend money. Not rude and turning people away.

The air conditioning wasn't working, so it was very warm in the restaurant. The food quality was very poor. We got the quattro plate which contained 4 different pasta items and everything tasted exactly the same. The ricotta was bland and the mozzarella cheese covering the top of the dish looked like plastic. The brussel sprouts looked like a mess of burned sprout leaves on the plate. The Crown Royal was tainted with cinnamon whiskey.

The food was amazing. My boyfriend and I will definitely be back soon! The waitress forgot to bring out our bread until after her appetizer, but she was very friendly, definitely did not change my decision to return.

Reservation for 630 and didn't sit until almost 745. Ordered as soon as we sat down because kids were losing their minds. Food took 45 minutes to arrive (including appetizers). The waitress was great but was overshadowed by the ridiculous wait for table and food. I got a reservation to avoid the wait. Very unhappy!

This was Mother's Day - so I know restaurants are very busy. However, this restaurant was not busy - not even 1/3 full. Waiters were standing aroung checking their phone istead of taking care of the few guests present. Took 2.5 hours for salad and lasagna.

Food was great! They Baked Ziti that serves 5 could feed 10. They did not honor the birthday note that I added to my Open Table reservation.
