We have eaten here several times over the years with large groups, but this time took our college aged son there just before his finals. I was glad we had reservations as there was a good wait probably due to people celebrating the holidays. The place was festive and the food was good and service was fine. My son really... More

I love the festive feel of this restaurant. This Buca, in particular, is special to me because it is where my husband and I had our small wedding reception--a family style meal with those we love for the start of our married life together. It's great to go to Buca and see so many people celebrating their families, special occasions,... More

Had been to a Bucca di Beppo in Philly a few years ago, and came to this location expecting the same great experience. Service was attentive and friendly, but food was bland and nothing special. tasted like spaghetti with jar sauce. Chicken parm was a bit over cooked and rubbery, and alfredo was nothing special. Not impressed with the brand... More

First time to the St. Paul location for dinner. Some of our party went overboard and ordered so much food! We tried the Chicken Parmigiana, Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken, Chicken Marsala, Penne Arrabbiata, & Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes & a Meatball. Tons of food for 5 people! We enjoyed the good service, delicious food, and the kitschy Buca ambiance it's known... More

We had our friend's group of 20 people meet for dinner at Buca's in St. Paul, Minnesota this past Saturday evening. The food was good, but the service was only fair. We had only one person taking care of our table and she seemed over whelmed. This was odd because this place specializes in serving larger groups It was difficult... More

I'll start this one by saying I'd been to Buca's before, just not this particular location. I won't be returning, at least not there and possibly not to another. The food was good, but the quality of service that we received threw a dark cloud over the entire occasion and pretty much ruined our dinner by the time we had... More
