I can see why this place is rated number 1. Food excellent. Staff friendly, attentive and knowledgable, venue small, romantic and tastefully decorated with nice lighting. A great wine list. If you like Italian food and good wine selection then you will not go wrong here. One important point to note, you do need to book in advance, especially at... More

We've been coming to Buca's for years. On this most recent visit, we had the grilled romaine. I highly recommend this and we ALWAYS get it when we come here. Tasty grilled romaine with a lovely dressing and croutons. Yum. My husband had the cod with pistachio crumbs, grilled tomato & pappardelle pasta. Excellent. I had the sole and shrimp... More

My boyfriend and I had dinner here on July 5. We had a reservation and only had to wait a few minutes for our table. The restaurant is very small but atmospheric. The walls are an old gold and are lined with shelves at molding-height holding wine bottles. There is a fireplace, but that night only candles were burning in... More

We saw reviews on trip advisor and gave a call. So glad we did! They hustled to accommodate us even though we called same day and the wine/food was wonderful. Don't be fooled by exterior. The interior ambience so nice. The Viteccio Chianti was just excellent. Husband ordered a very hearty spicy dish with sausage and shrimp. I ordered a... More

We met up with two dear friends for our anniversary dinner. I had not been to Buca's for years and my husband had never eaten here. We were more than fashionably late, which was taken in stride, although they were busy. That was appreciated as we felt bad enough for having gotten lost! [Be careful using GPS to find Buca's...

We have come to the lower Cape and owned a summer home here at one time. Sadly, we only discovered Buca a few seasons ago. Rustic, charming, great service, and oh the food! If you are looking for great food, authentic Italian and a warm and charming atmosphere, then you will love Bucas. The cape often consists of overpriced resort... More

Great use of fresh ingredients with distinctive flavorings-lots of fresh garlic and interesting sauces over very fresh fish and seafood. Small but festive looking dining room. Reservations needed.

This was our first visit to Buca's, after many trips to the Cape, and we were pleasantly surprised. Our salads were fresh (no wilted leaves), very well prepared - and quite large. My wife wasn't terribly hungry, so had a polenta appetizer for the main course. She wasn't wild about the sweet and savory combination of flavors, but that's just... More

We went to Buca's based on Tripadvisor. We did not go wrong.. You must make a reservation because the plase is small. Most Italian restaurants give large portions but the quality may be lacking, unless your in North End or Providence RI. Portions are not large you may leave a little. The food is good, Ecellentl

This place came highly recommended from the Harwichport inn at which we were staying, and we liked it very much. The food is authentically Tuscan, though the portions are American (larger than in Tuscany) and even challenging to finish. For instance, my Buca's Bolognese was excellent in that the wild boar meat was perfect (and an imaginative twist on the... More
