They don’t take reservations, it would be nice if the would have noted this ahead of time . Ruined my birthday ! Showed up for my reservation and they told me there is a hour and a half wait. The worst customer service !

Don’t bother with a reservation it’s self seating. Also we were asked to move twice because the “manager” does not allow more than 4 people at a table. The table across from us had 6 people.....

It was advertised they close at 11pm, we showed up at 9:30pm and waitress just looked at us for like 3 seconds and was like yeah... we are closed. I said we had a reservation at 9:30. She’s steered flipping chairs and said again we are closed.. very rude. We didn’t want to make a big thing about it and just left.

I get that it’s COVID issues at hand, and the challenges involved. We were on family road trip looking for a place to eat dinner. We made a reservation on the app. Not knowing the area nor what would be open we drove past several restaurants since we had a reservation already. On arrival we were directed to the back of the line of folks waiting for a table. Didn’t matter whether we made or had a reservation. The wait would be over 30 min. So we walked across the street to another restaurant.

My only point is that a restaurant should not get the extra traffic from this app when they don’t actually have the ability to honor a reservation at this time. If you can’t honor reservations then you shouldn’t offer them thru this app.

It’s been a while since we’ve been to Buca and it was amazing. The service was great. We were seated as soon as we got there because we had our reservation so that was awesome. The food was delicious. The portions are big so we knew we were going to have a lot left over but that was not a problem at all. We loved the bruschetta! It was so delicious that we could’ve probably had another if it wasn’t because we had already ordered our dinner. Definitely recommend to go on an empty stomach because you will have a lot to eat! 😆

Everything was awesome as expected. The only problem I had I I really hope a fix is found is that I could NOT reserve a specific table as I was led to believe I could if I downloaded the app. It wasnt until I got there that I found out you must call to get a specific table if that is what you wish

This time the service was below par. Server failed to bring out bread before bringing out the salad or with the salad. It was no serving for a third person that was sitting at the table. And it took forever to bring us our check. In the past we've had good experiences we just threw a Christmas party and had over 30 people in the service was outstanding

Overall, great service & good value as the have very large portions. Also, they have Meatball Mondays where anything with meatballs is 50% off, which is a really good deal.
Buca is one of my husband’s favorite places, so we went there for his birthday. I personally prefer more authentic Italian cuisine, but it is a really fun place with interesting and nostalgic decor. The service is always friendly from the servers to the manager. Only disappointment was that the brownie sundae had stale/ crunchy brownie pieces which was not soft and chewy as you would imagine. However, can’t complain because if you belong to Buca’s birthday club, they give you this dessert for free for your birthday....
Otherwise, pleasant and good value overall. :)

The food is always good. On this occasion we were seated too close to the kitchen so had to deal with strong odors from the kitchen toward the end of our meal. The other couple with us had a plastic ribbon in their pasta so it was replace with another order, but that shouldn't happen.
I still prefer to take their food home and get a couple of meals out of a purchase, so that is the best route for my family going forward.

We went for a surprise party and we reserve in advance, but it still seems like they were under prepared for us. The server wasn't really great with a large group (kind of weird for a family style restaurant). My biggest complaint was that I checked in advance because we had two vegans in our party, but when we got there it turns out there was nothing for them to eat, the previously vegan options had ben removed from the menu apparently.

We celebrated my daughter’s 18th birthday with the family. Our original plan was to go to another restaurant but they didn’t take reservations and we’d been to Buca before so we booked it. I received 2 calls to verify my large party’s arrival time and when we got there, we didn’t have to wait any time! The service was prompt, the food was good, the celebration memorable! Thanks Buca!

Service (not including the bar-which was poor/being ignored) was excellent. Don't order the Veal Parmigiana, chewy and lacking in flavor. Salads were excellent, garlic bread ok, pasta was pretty good. Desserts were pretty good. That doesn't add up to $266 (for 6) before tip with a few drinks being anything to write home about. Buca in Encino used to be excellent.

This is an Italian restaurant at the bottom floor of the parking garage in a shopping center of Uber-suburbia. So expect nothing more.

The food is pretty good, and it's a lively spot for parties and celebrations. I've had their food at various parties, and it was always good. This was my second time dining there with my family. The food was good, and the price is reasonable. But on this occasion, for a family dinner out when my mother was visiting, we had a very bad service experience. As you do at a family-style place like this, we ordered several dishes. We were served our salad first, so when the other dishes came, we moved the salad to the end of the table to make room for everything else. The salad dish was cleared, but unfortunately, we were not finished with it, and it was still more than half full. We recognized how the error happened, as the dish was near the end of the table, so we addressed to our server that our salad had been removed before we were finished with it. He stared blankly at us and said, "Ok" and walked away. We assumed he was going to get more salad or find out what happened. Nope. He never addressed it again. He only came back and asked if we wanted desert. We said no, but we wanted the rest of our salad.

The salad cost about $18, so what was removed from the table was worth half that. Fine. Not a big deal. Had he apologized, or acknowledged the error in any way, it would have been more than fine. But he didn't. He entirely brushed it off. It was frustrating and disappointing.

Generally speaking, if you want mediocre Italian food and the Olive Garden is full, sure, go here. If you have the option for legit Italian in a mom-and-pop space, got there.
