Bucci's has closed as of October 1, 2015

I enjoyed many memorable meals there, and one company dinner in which the diners were horrifyingly bad, but still the meal was great. The owners have retired. Bucci's will be missed.

I have been going to Bucci's for over 25 years and find it consistently excellent. It is both family friendly and also a great romantic place for couples. It is very rare to find a restaurant that is both. The bar mixes great drinks and offers a good variety of wines by the glass. They bake their own breads daily... More

Setting: In Emeryville with lots of Parking space. Has a brick loft decor and spacey feeling. Our group got seated in the back. Food: Nice variety. I had the chicken, which was ok - didn't knock my socks off - but passed the test. Decent vine selection. Deserts are ok'ish. Espresso was very thin - definitely NOT Italian. service: Nice,... More

I've been to Bucci's twice at lunchtime, and have had a great experience both times. For the first visit I had one of their sandwich specials. It was very tasty, and so large that I ended up not eating all of it. For my most recent visit I was with a group of 10 coworkers. We had a variety of... More

The food was OK but not great. The setting is OK but not great. But it's a quiet place on an unassuming street. I went there so that we can have a quiet conversation and a decent plate of food.

When friends come to visit, I love to take them to Bucci's. The decor is lovely as is the ambiance, and there are changing art exhibits in the back room. You can tell the restaurant is a favorite for those who live or work nearby. At lunchtime, when the weather is suitable, one can also eat outside on the patio.... More

I first dined at Bucci’s several decades ago, when it was one of the few restaurants in Emeryville. I always enjoyed their pizza, which way back when was made from a sourdough dough that was produced at Semifreddi’s, a local bakery known for its bread. Over the years, I have gone back perhaps once a year, and on each occasion... More

Not the price...trying to be more chic than it actually is. My burger was below average. Pizza looked good, but was too pricey. Iced tea was stale. Service was ok. All in all, not worth the prices they charge.

Easy parking and nice entrance thru lovely garden. Nice ambiance. Good bartender skills here. My birthday group loved the cocktails and dinner. Nice circular table w garden view. Creative variety of pizza, chicken and even a good Bucci Burger. Only one complaint. I notified hostess and owner of our birthday celebration asking for a candle on our dessert. It did... More
