We walked in following an Ms spring training game. We're seated promptly. I ordered the Stuffed Shells and my buddy ordered the Enchilada Special. Portions were large. My shells had enough spicy hot to satisfy. Dave's meal wasn't as spicy, but he enjoyed it a lot. Will return!!

This restaurant has a good formula with very good Italian food, good value, and authentic ambience. It is more geared for larger groups, since food is served "family style" in large bowls. We were having the same thing, so one bowl was fine for us.

My wife and I shared our first date at Buca's 6 years ago and thought it would be neat to go back while we were out on vacation. We have good experiences at other locations. We went on a Monday evening. There was barely anyone there but had to wait 10 minutes for a table to be cleared. Got seated... More

There were 3 of us on this evening and we ordered the seafood trio platter for an appetizer. It was very good. The mussels were tender and tasty. The shrimp and calimari were also delicious. For entrees we ordered the chicken saltimbocca and veal marsala to share. The chicken was very good; tender and delicious. The veal was good but... More

The food is always good and the helpings are very generous, as long as my wife and I want to share a meal, as all of their items are for 2 or more people. We also had a good waitress that was attentive to us. We like the atmosphere with all of the nostalgic pictures on the walls.

We were looking for a nice place for an impromptu dinner. This fit the bill. Exceptional service by Wes the bartender/server. As usual the Apple Gorgonzola Salad was outstanding. Wes has to be one of the most courteous and efficient servers we have ever met. Even took care of a birthday surprise for me. Thank you Wes.

We were excited to try a new place so we went there at noon. There were only 3 tables. Atmosphere was quaint and acceptable. Our appetizer was a big basket of bread with garlic and cheese and it was delicious. We then ordered the pizza with sausage, peppers, and cheese. It was just ok. Sauce was not very flavorful and...

Husband and I had Thanksgiving dinner at Buca. Big mistake! The photo in the newspaper illustrated 4 pasta dishes, 3 veggie dishes, turkey, dressing, sausage, cranberry sauce, biscuits, gravy, wine and cheesecake for dessert to serve 3 all for $49.95! Too good to be true! Right! We received, turkey, dried out salty stuffing, gravy, blanched green beans, mash potatoes, cranberry... More

Went here on a Tuesday evening about 5:00 with a group of 13. Ordered a bottle of white white zinfandel which was on the menu @ 24 dollars. Some time later the waitress came back and said they were out of white zinfandel so we ordered a bottle of riesling wine . After some time a different person came back... More

Dinner was so-so this evening. We were two couples and ordered the large Caesar Salad for the table. The salad was good but they had no anchovies! An "Italian" restaurant with no anchovies? The Shrimp Florentine was very bland but some cheese, salt and pepper livened it up some. The Veal Marcala was grainy and very chewy. The wait staff... More
