Not quite what it used to be

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... read more

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

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

I always enjoy dining at Bucci's not only for the food, but for the excellent service from Pauline behind the bar. She is a character and extremely knowledgeable about the wines they serve. The menu is widely variable and delicious. If your ever in Emeryville, you should go to Bucci's.

Emeryville has almost no local, quality restaurants. Believe me, we looked for all of our 6 day visit and we ate at most of them. This is a lovely Italian place in a beautiful building with exposed wood and brick along with a charming garden which was not open the night we visited. We had spaghetti w/meatballs, a chicken dish,... More

Bucci's take Italian cuisine to California with flair. Juicy burgers grilled to perfection and meatballs so huge you have enough left-overs for the next meal. Very helpful, knowledgeable and warm dining assistants complete the overall experience. Bucci's is a place you would visit again and again.

This restaurant on Hollis nestles in a complex of offices. The food is pretty good and authentic Italian. I just wonder about the signs on the wall the riles against paying taxes.

It's been in Emeryville for years but continues to offer fresh, inventive and wonderful Italian cuisine. Service is great and the hostess/owner is a gem. Down the street from Pixar, you won't be disappointed.
