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.

We went for a quick bite between business meetings. The patio looked inviting given that it was a sunny day, but it was a bit too chilly for al fresco dining. We were seated in the side room off the main dining room. It was not the best location given the access to service areas and waitstaff traffic. The atmosphere... More

Bucci's is a very charming and friendly place for dinner -- the service is attentive, and the food is pretty good. While not exceptional enough to warrant making a special trip just to eat here, if you live or are visiting nearby, it's a nice place for pizza and pasta that's a step up from the much more casual options...

Horrible steak, very strange gnocci, high prices, not worth 1/2 what we paid. Waitress tried to be helpful, but I guess Italians are used to gnocci made with potatoes???

Our group of five members were very well satisfied with the tasty offerings. There is a wide variety of Italian selections available. Even after dinner, we all found a dessert offering that topped off our wonderful dinner.

Our family was in for a quick bite before a show and we had a nice meal. We had a beet salad and steam mussels for starters - the salad was good. The mussels were very good, but the lump of mayonnaise was not not necessary. We had the stuffed penne and a margherita pizza. The pizza was much better... More
