Excellent service!

Our hockey team celebrated the end of our season with a team meal and gave Buca a try. It was PERFECT for our large group. We called 3 days before and they easily fit our group of 15 families in. When we arrived, they were ready for us, with food on table. Since we were a large party, they... read more

We were there 25 years ago and the place is better today than ever. Food is served family style. Had the chicken parmesan and took home a full piece and bowl of pasta. Highly recommend.

Meatballs the size of your head! Well maybe not that large but they are still pretty big. In fact that is the only way food is served at Buca, family portions. That is why their food might seem expensive at first but keep in mind a small is designed to feed 2-3 people. I'm impressed with their ability to have... More

Wedding rehearsal dinner over 30 people. Great service and food. Location was a little out of the way but nice for traffic. Abundant dinners. we were warned in advance that if we were not there on time our reservation would be cancelled which seemed a little unusual for large party on special event but I supposed they have been burned...

Sharing dishes is the name of the game. We like to order a salad and/or appetizer and then 1-2 entrees to share. Everyone can choose a favorite. Every dish we've tried has been delicious. Favorites include the apple gorgonzola salad and a pasta dish with chicken and broccoli.

We dined here because we had a coupon and we had not been here in quite a while. The food was very good. We had a shrimp pasta and a cheese pasta. There were only two of us so we left with lots of leftovers. We will get 2-3 more meals out of it.

My family enjoyed the Italian atmosphere and Italian food. My favorite is pizza and manicotti! Try a birthday dinner here as they sing and give you a giant piece of chocolate cake. You order Buca small for 2 or Buca large for 4. Bread is endless with nice dipping sauce. Lots of different drinks.

While I wouldn't call this "authentic Italian" its good enough to call Americanized Italian. We have found over the years that if nothing else, it is consistently very good. We especially like the mixed green salad with Italian vinegarette dressing, and many of the pasta items featured on the menu. There is plenty of variety from spaghetti and meatballs to... More

What can you say about Buca that everyone doesn't already know? The food is great at all locations, the decor is similar at all locations. The only difference is the size. This particular location situated just on the outside of downtown is pretty small. It is much smaller the the Maple Grove location but large in comparison to downtown Minneapolis.... More

My son, his girlfriend and I had dinner here on Wednesday, 02-04-15. There was lots to choose from. We had a coupon for a free small Fettucine Alfredo which serves 2. We also ordered cheesy bread Florentine which was fabulous! The stuffed shells were marvelous! To top it off, we splurged on the Colossal Brownie Sundae. We ended up with... More
