This place serves huge portions of food. The place is nicely decorated and makes you feel in Italy, staff friendly, little on the expensive side and plenty of parking spaces outside.

We had our grandsons graduation party last night. We knew about the family style serving but everything ordered was the best and sharing the various choices made this evening an awesome night. The wait staff and management staff were so busy with other parties but took time for all the details to make this a memorable party. A place you... More

Warning! This place serves "family style". That means the plates serve several people. I like this place, but the problem is that when someone in your group is picky, you end up eating something you would not have ordered because you only need a couple of plates to feed a group! The good part is the food is really good!... More

3/2/2014 first visit for my mom's birthday. The location is off the I-45N freeway in the Woodlands, TX but when we looked it up it shows Shenandoah,TX but it's all still the Woodlands to me. There is a Sam's, bath and body works, Sally's and other stores in the same parking lot. Upon arrival the ENTIRE staff was VERY pleasant... More

This is the second year we have celebrated our Thanksgiving here. We don't come till after 6 so the crowds have gone. The service is wonderful and we love the food.

My fave..mildly spicy with an abundance of mussels, calamari, and shrimp. Cheese cake minus the hazelnuts is my pick for dessert.

This place has passable food--although nothing "special" (in my opinion). But the variety and number of choices is extensive and the fare is tasty enough to please everyone. What I really like about the place is that it is a really, really good place to take your family. Everything is served family style in big serving bowls in the center... More

Worst Italian food that we have had in the area. Bland and little flavor to the dishes that we ordered at lunchtime.

We have made a couple of different visits to another Buca location, but it has been a few years, and we honestly couldn't remember what we thought of it before we visited this one. Now we remember that it is the unique atmosphere that is most attractive about Buca rather than the food. It is a great place for a... More
