Food was great. Perfect garlic bread and main courses were really good. There were 4 of us and we ordered 4 small entrees that left plenty to take home. The desserts were out of this world huge and sooooo good.

Want to say this was a very special visit to our favorite restaurant. The service we get from the staff is awesome. Particularly Deb “ Mom” the bartender. She is very attentive and a joy to talk to. She is the main reason we frequent this buca. Thank you Deb for treating us like “ Buca’s favorite customer

The Hostess was very standoffish, there were bread crumbs on the seat of the booth. My wife asked to be cleaned up, the hostess cleaned the booth, but left the seat wet. My wife than had to dry with a napkin.

Now for our waiter, he was amazing knowledgable and fun..

We were looking for a good Italian restaurant to accommodate a party of 12 and we sure chose the right place! They set us up at a huge round table in a semi-private room and we were treated like royalty from the very beginning. The waiter was friendly and helped us make really great menu choices. The food arrived quickly and we all had plenty to eat. The flavors and temperature of the food were perfect! We were celebrating 2 birthdays and the staff really took care of us. I have a feeling we will return to this restaurant again and again!

I noted in the open table comments that this was a celebration dinner for my son who is leaving for the Military.. it was our last family dinner together and Buca has always made birthday celebrations fun! So I called to make sure they could sing good luck or something similar instead of happy birthday! I told them I wanted to pre order their huge dessert and make sure a big deal was made for my son! The gentleman who answered the phone said “for sure! What better reason to celebrate then for someone going to fight for our country!” I asked if I needed to say something again when he got there..he told me no..it’s under control!! So we ordered dinner.. it was served, our waiter didn’t even ask if we wanted dessert.. he just brought the check! My daughter asked him secretly if they were doing something for her brother with dessert and singing., he said I have no idea. Came back a few minutes later with a piece of cake and put it down in front of my son and said nothing! And then left the new check with the cake added! Horrible! So disappointed in their lack of caring! We only chose them because of their celebration fun.. their food is just ok and a bit overpriced but their celebrations make it fun and worth it! Well they really screwed us.. and our last dinner with my son before he is gone at Marine boot camp for 13 weeks! Thanks for Nothing Buca!

FOod was delicious! Had shrimp parmigiana and the trio appetizer combo. This was the only restaurant open on Christmas. It was chaotic and tight while waiting for a table, but the food and awesome waiter made up for it!

Buca has amazing service and great food. The food is meant to be shared - not individual meals so you can try a lot of different food. The more people the better!! The salads are awesome!

We had a terrible server. He got upset because we ordered one entre for two adults and two kids meals for the kids. He tried to double charge a bottle of wine. We are still dealing w the credit card company for he then billed us twice when we caught the intentional error. We will never return Bad bad service as our president would say

We were promptly seated at our reservation time, which was great. After being seated we waited about 12 minutes before the waitress came by our table. We ordered drinks, appetizer, and our entrees. We also asked for water. At 25 minutes after we were seated I spoke with the manager (Stephen). Our drinks arrived shortly after, and bread too. A little while later appetizers. We again asked for water. Our dinner salad arrived (Caesar - very good!) and again we asked for water. When our dinner showed up we kinda yelled for water too. That seemed to have worked as the waitress FINALLY brought us water. Perhaps she was hoping we'd keep ordering cocktails if she didn't give us water? We ordered 3 entrees between the 4 of us. More than plenty - we took enough home that it was lunch for 2 of us the next day. The entrees were very good. Loved the food, but this time the service just was not up to par. A 10% tip might have drove the point home with the waitress. Will return along with a prayer for better service. Maybe we'll request "the pope room"!

Usually have a very good experience there, but on this visit we were told that they ran out of bread, so we weren't able to order our favorite appetizer. Also the fountain drinks did not taste quite right this time.

Took out of town friends here. Everything was good except the bar service. There was supposed to be a special price on bottle of red wine....they had sold out....so why did the waiter promote it? The manhattans were nothing to write home about.

It was a week night later in the evening and there did not appear to be many people in the restaurant. We waited over 10 minutes for dinner to greet is and offer to take our drink order and over an hour to receive our food. Clearly there was something going on as we had probably five to six different servers come and help us throughout the meal. They continued to apologize for the long delay but that's all that happened. The server's did their best with the issue but I was surprised that they didn't even try to offer us a dessert or some compensation. It was a terrible experience. I know the servers were trying their best to compensate for whatever the real issue was but I don't think the restaurant stepped up to provide a good experience.

We brought a large group for a family event and had planned the menu in advance to be able to skip the normal "menu negotiations" common in family style ordering. We gave the order to Damon in advance, and he had every course ready at the perfect time. We were able to focus on the conversation while Damon and crew took care of everything else. Just a fun night for all!
