This small casual restaurant had everything that we wanted, delicious Italian food, a wonderful affordable wine list and fun lively atmosphere. I am still dreaming about the Fiori di Zucca and the Raw Artichoke salad. The service was helpful and efficient. We had a perfect evening.

I hesitate to write this review only because I want to keep this gem all to myself. Fortunately for this establishment, the word is already out. The food is fantastic here! This review is the culmination of several visits to Buca, each time I have thoroughly enjoyed my meals. You must try the gnocchi fritti with prosciutto. It is my... More

We went a number of years ago when it first opened and it was great - food, service, etc. Went back recently - the service was horrible, the food was average and the atmosphere was dull.

Open restaurant with great food. We had an infant and they were very accomodating. Service was superb. Meal portions are artistic, but taste and presentation top notch. Not inexpensive, but a great top end meal for the price. Highly recommend.

We went for the six course tasting menu with wine pairings. Most of the dishes were off of the regular menu but with the portion size scaled down for a multi course dinner. The food, the choices for the wine pairing and the service were all excellent. It made for a great evening.

Intestines, blood and offal - those were the choices offered with the pastas. Not to mention lamb's brains for appetizers.There must be many diners out there much for adventurous than us for this restaurant to have such good reviews. There are three main seating areas, one outside, one bright and airy one at the bottom of the stairs and one... More

No menu on the door, so we stumbled inside and tried to find something to eat. It wasn't easy. I can appreciate that the menu appeals to carnivores, but if you are a vegetarian there is virtually nothing on offer. Most dishes that potentially could be vegetarian or pescatarian options also are designed to include meat, sometimes of a bizarre... More
