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

This is a great place for big groups, but not so much for a date night or girl's night out. A bit pricey, but service is great.

We went here in a Sunday night in early April. When I called to see if we needed a reservation, the gentleman said probably not tonight, but maybe make one anyway just in case. We arrived a minute or two before our reservation and were told they would call our name when they were ready for us, as our table... More

Five of us went to Buca last night. We go there many times a year. Last night we had the Chopped Antipasto Salad, Mac and Cheese (for a three year old), Chicken Saltimbocca, Spicy Sausage with Peppers, and Garlic Mashed Potatoes. We were a bit disappointed with many of the dishes. The two standouts were the Sausage dish and the... More

I really enjoy sharing the large plates. We usually let one or two people order for the group, though I insist on the apple gorgonzola salad.

Buca is a great restaurant if you are looking for an electric atmosphere and good comfort food. Many suggest this as a great destination spot for large groups. I would certainly agree ... the Italian diningroom feel and gregarious wait staff are the perfect backdrop for a group outing. However, Buca has much to offer for couples, too. The menu... More
