    First time; this was a nice find. We've been eating at restaurants around the Walnut St. Theatre area for years and never found this one until now. We'll be back again.

    spinach fettucine was excellent. Husband's bolognese, not the best he's ever had. Your bar tender did a great job serving us, as did our waiter. Chocolate cake for dessert was divine!

    Old school style Italian Restaurant. I miss the white tablecloths from previous iteration. Service needs some work. A bit rough and tumble, and rather clumsy.... Hostess was wearing wrinkled long t-shirt and leggings.... eating a plate of pasta at station. A HUGE no-no. Unpolished, needs a tiny bit of work. Waited 5 minutes for service. Waitstaff/Food Runner needs to speak more softly to table. No shouting, please. Should know who gets what entree. Never checked on us during main course, or offered 2nd drink. Needs major improvement.

    Date night with my husband pre theater. I started with a wonderful glass of Pinot Noir and hubby had a Cabernet. Service was impeccable, professional and attentive but never intrusive. I ordered the Carfiofi d’Oro, perfectly grilled artichoke hearts topped with sautéed shrimp, parmigiana and chopped arugula, as my entree. My husband had the Caesar salad and Vitelli Saltimbocca and a size of penne marinara. We both wanted to lick the plates and used the bread to get ever last drop. We finally realized that we recognized our waitress and 2 other servers.. previously from one of our favorite restaurants. We highly recommend Buca D’Oro and give it a 10 out of 10. Can’t wait to go back soon!! A hidden gem!!

    The place is under new management and they are working hard to make a good impression. My only issue was to much salt on the veal dish but they quickly replaced it. The fried calamari was overcooked even after I asked that it now be prior.

    Food was mediocre. The only fish entry was salmon, and the fish special of the day was salmon, both prepared identically. Appetizers, salads, desserts were generally good, not great. Nice selection of wines by the glass. Service by Das was exceptional. When this restaurant was La Buca it was excellent, but the cuisine deteriorated quite a bit at the now named Buca d'oro Ristorante. White tablecloths were replaced by no tablecloths.

    This was our first time here! Absolutely fantastic!!! Soft shell crabs, stuffed calamari with crabmeat, veal, pasta and dessert all outstanding! We are looking forward to returning soon. Highly recommend to everyone especially those who cook all the time - this is homemade Italian food without all the work.

    What a gem! Our kids were coming in to town and it was difficult to find a restaurant that was open on a Monday night. Open Table found this hidden “speakeasy” gem next to Washington Square and we are so very glad. Other than a very loud pontificator that thankfully left with his crew by the time we put our order in the spot was cozy and quiet. The food came very quickly and was simply amazing. My son and I both got the Penne Bella and the others at the table kept stealing “tastes”. My husband was still talking about the dish the next day. No doubt what he’s getting the next time we visit. Thank you to Open Table for the suggestion.
