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

Annual friends get together. 16 of us sat in the Pope room which is setup for big group & enables ease of talking to anybody.

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!

Nice friendly waitress. Salad arrived after our entrees. Food tasty but not very hot. Had to ask for water refills and more plates etc. Chicken picatta was delicious.

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’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!

Service was very slow in arriving to the table. Over 10 minutes- nobody.
Food arrived over cooked after a long wait.

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!

The food is SOOO delicious! I love everything about this place, although it was kind of chilly for it being December. We were seated underneath a vent and it was blowing out cold air. But regardless, food and service wise, excellent!

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
