I've eaten here several times with a few different groups so this review is based on 5 different visits over the last few years, with the most recent being in December 2015. I like the atmosphere with the walls covered in interesting memorabilia and the restaurant divided into several smaller rooms with a few tables each and some tables are... More

We went with 2 other couples and this place really does know how to serve groups. I loved the quirky little turns and corners of the seating arrangements. The atmosphere was not as formal as I expected. Our waiter was a hoot, he kept us laughing and was top notch on suggestions, answers and attentiveness. All of us had leftovers... More

I've been to Buca's more than once, and always have such good food - my personal favorite is the chicken saltimboca, but I've never had anything that I DIDN'T like! We were there on an "off" night in the middle of the week, and even though we had reservations for the main dining room, we were able to get seated... More

A great place for groups and/or couples. The food servings are very large and the menu choices many. Our waitress was patient (being that there were 13 women in the group who liked to talk ... a lot!, she was great.)

We had a party of 16 and had the pleasure of using the Pope room/table. Pretty and eclectic setting, great food, fantastic service for our group!

I had heard lots about this restaurant in the Twin Cities so we decided to try it out. We had ravioli and manicotti that was said to feed 2 or 3 but we ate it all, it was good. Ravioli was generous but only 4 smaller cheese-stuffed manicotti for $17.95, no other sides with it either. Bread was okay but... More

We've eaten at various Buca restaurants over the years, but have never written a review. We ate there last night, and I had forgotten how good it was. The two of us arrived at 8:00 after a long day of shopping, and they took very good care of us. There were only two of us, but we managed to eat... More

The food is excellent, the atmosphere is fantastic. My family likes to come here as a large party and order a good number of dishes to pass around. This last time we had the "Pope room", a unique room that was enclosed around a large round table that featured a lazy susan. The waitress couldn't actually get to the other... More
