Very popular place but definitely worth it! I would recommend making reservations to save some time waiting but they are very efficient. The wait staff was delightful and the food was fabulous. They are very accommodating to large groups as well. I would definitely eat here again.

What a wonderful place to bring a large group. We had an excellent meal, a warm welcome and great service. Visiting my son and daughter in law, who's parents were in the States for a visit from Chile. Meals were more than enough and had to take left overs. Tasty and cooked to perfection. Salads were very fresh and the... More

We went for a pre-Christmas holiday meal. We ordered their Christmas brie cheese appetizer which was good We had soup and salad and then we shared their single serving crab and clam bucket for our meal. The single serving was more than enough for two people and was very good. We enjoyed all with an Anchor Steam beer. The place... More

Always pleased with the food and service at this restaurant. My wife ordered the the crusted trout and I had the salmon. Both entrees were excellent choices and values. Service was attentive also. Would recommend it.

Excellent value with their coupon (up to $20.00 off) in the SJ Mercury circular "The Eye". Large menu selection, nice size portions, very attentive service.

By The Bucket is one of the Gems of Santa Clara. This restaurant serves very good Seafood and Steaks. The environment is formal dining with Bread in a basket and cloth napkins. Over all a good place for a first date to impress your girl. I ordered the half rack of lamb and it was delicious. My Date had the... More

We quit going to By The Bucket because when you order Veal Parmigianino you get mashed potatoes instead of spaghetti. If you want spaghetti you have to pay extra. I've never had this dish served with mashed potatoes. That's not the way an authentic Italian restaurant does things.

Latest visit to BTB was another success. Good Italian pastas and sauces, tasty salads, decent appetizers, are served along with decent wines. Fresh baked breads, spreads, add to the experience. The fired ravioli appetizer is terrific. Ambiance is comfortable, but not extravagent. Service is friendly and knowledgable. Meal pacing is a bit on the slow side during busy periods (it... More

When we want clams or mussels by the bucket this place is so good!!! The broth is perfect. Service is good. Salads before hand and ordering some garlic bread to go with - just perfect. Full bar on site. Parking is on the lot; it sometimes can get busy here so make reservations especially for the week-ends. Service is friendly... More
