Reserved a table for Thanksgiving, order the "Feast" that is supposed to server up to 6 for $138 - took an hour to get food that was not hot. Also, disappointing portions (the per portion price is $23, and one sixth of what we got was worth about $10). Asked a manager to have our meal redone. Received new food (I hope) in about 15 minutes - portions still small; turkey was dry, stuffing looked to be made from salad croutons, the green beans and potatoes were good - the gravy was obviously from a can. And when we asked for our pumpkin pie "to go" we were told they had run out and we would be getting Cannoli instead (no choices) - which I cannot eat. Since we had needed to involve the manager I had expected to see a price reduction on our bill - nothing.
Extremely disappointing.

We keep trying but the disappointments keep happening. We order a bottle of wine and each of us get a salad. My husbands got the Apple Gorgonzola salad. Only to have the spinach all wilted and soft. I got the antipasto salad, which was really good until I found a nickel sized hard piece of plastic in my salad.

The bathrooms were disgusting. Dust hanging from ceiling. I think we will have to explore other options for our Italian fix. I never will be going here again.

The COVID restrictions has made it tough on everyone, but I think this team should be commended for spreading diners out, without making it feel that way, and still making the experience welcoming and enjoyable. We always have a ton of fun when we come to Bucca and have figured out how to "work" the leftovers so we can sample a lot of dishes, but fully expect to be taking some food home!

The brussel sprouts need to come back to the menu...they were incredibly special! The cheesecake was simply fantastic. We hadn't always gotten desert before, but now we will!

The calamari was not very good. Very small crispy pieces didn't really taste much like calamari. The stuffed shells we're great. The salad was great. Service was very slow it took a long time to get the salad. Waitress said the salad guy was slow. Ordered a glass of wine and it never came. Waitress said the bartender didn't make the drink. Had to wait for the manager to take it off the bill. Had to ask three times for the bread it finally came. Wi-Fi I wasn't working

This was the worst service I have had from a restaurant. We were a party of 5 celebrating my boyfriend son’s birthday. We ordered Caesar salad which came without the dressing. We ordered Cheese Manicotti and we got baked Ziti instead. When we told the waitress, her manager came to our table and rudely told us not to eat something we did not order. His approach was in professional. The place was dirty and service was awful. Our evening was ruined.

We were there for my birthday. I was a little disappointed that my name wasn’t on the sign out front but they did add it once i told them. I had birthday coupons with $20 off $40 and a free giant sundae. My party and i split the quattro al forno and a gorgonzola salad(they forgot to put the cheese in), and we each had a drink. Even with the coupons, we still paid over $60! The drinks were so expensive. The pasta was $29.99, the salad was high i thought at $18.99, and then $20 off that makes it around $30... the rest was for 3 drinks, wow!

We ordered the antipasto salad. It looked like it was leftover from earlier. The lettuce was wilted and it was dripping wet with dressing but had a watery flavor. The spicy sausage and peppers tasted good but was only warm not hot. The service was great the atmosphere expected. It’s been awhile since we’ve been here. Guess it’ll be awhile before we go again.

The food and service were fine but the table we were seated at was next to the kitchen and was extraordinarily hot. Our entire family was flushed and sweating throughout our entire meal which made it very difficult to enjoy. Even the waitress said she hates serving in that section because it’s so hot and she feels like she is going to pass out. This is the second time we have been seated in this section and it was horrible both times. We will not be returning to this restaurant as they do not seem to be concerned in the least with the comfort of their guests and employees.

Our server was terrible. He brought us water, didn’t ask if we wanted anything else to eat. While we were ordering he told us we had plenty of food. Told him we were celebrating a birthday he said we couldn’t be sung to since we didn’t have a birthday coupon. One of us ordered black coffee and never got it. He wasn’t around to ask and when he did show up we were ready to get out of there. Haven’t had this bad of service anywhere in a long time.

No I would not recommend this location to a friend. We were seated for 20 minutes before water and our drink order was served. Our waitress seemed to "get lost" for extended periods of time between our courses, even though the establishment did not seem to be terribly busy.

For starters, we ordered a large salad (our waitress brought us a small), the meatball appetizer (it was hard, not tender, dry and flavorless), and the sausage with peppers and onions (not bad, but nothing to write home about). For our main course we ordered spaghetti with meatballs and fettuccini alfredo with chicken (our waitress forgot to include the chicken). Both main dishes came with minimal sauce and were rather dry. For desert, we ordered the tiramisu. Once again this was rather bland.

In my opinion, skip this one.

We were there early on a Saturday -- not too crowded, but most of the staff seemed to be working on dinner set-up (at 11:30 a.m.). Our waitress was not a happy camper (I don't think it was us -- we're a pretty nice group of people, and we overtipped). I hadn't been there for awhile.

We came to this restaurant for Christmas dinner, as we were passing through town on our way home from Nashville. Ironically, it was the second time that this has been our choice for Christmas dinner, having come here once before a couple of years ago for a similar reason. We enjoy the family atmosphere of the restaurant and it seems perfect for the occasion of a Christmas dinner. The food was very good. Service wasn’t quite as good as it was the last time we were at the restaurant, as our waitress knocked over our drinks and gave us a “bath” of water, beer and salad dressing! Accidents happen but her reaction to it wasn’t as good as I would’ve hoped. She simply brought napkins and offered to replace my son’s drink for free (which she had knocked over, so that seemed kind of obvious). All in all, we still had an enjoyable, albeit wet, evening.
