Fun, family style dining with exceptionally good food.

Be hungry and be prepared to eat! The portions are huge and the food delicious. We were there with a large group that was seated in the Pope room that has a turn table in the middle to share dishes. The atmosphere is festive and busy. Our waitress was very patient and accurate with a large... read more

Matt and I ate here with my Mom today. While going for lunch has one advantage, far fewer people, we still had to wait about five minutes for a table. Once we were seated, our server was polite and fast. Bucca has a new lunch menu, but when you add up the cost to get the individual sized servings, it... More

This was my first visit. My husbands and friends have been there before. We all ordered the small portion and had plenty to share. The bread was fresh and the pasta was cooked to perfection. Not very friendly staff. We were seated then asked if we needed help? I could have used a refill on my water, but was never... More

Looked thru Living Social to see who had specials, and found a $20 for $10 at Buca. We hadn't been there in a while, so decided to stop by. Easy to make reservations, and parking lot was packed. Service was good, but food was just average. Restaurant ran out of butter for the bread, and the amount of sauce on... More

After a recent visit to the Pittsburgh, PA, Buca's, my 15 year old daughter insisted we eat at the Worthington location. Our expectations were quite high; unfortunately, this location was unable to meet them. Staff was polite, but not overly helpful- for example, as a relatively new customer, I mistakenly ordered two of the same entrees. I would have liked... More

The food was good and served family style. The service was pleasant. We had a good time and everyone enjoyed his or her meal. However, I felt that the ingredients were somewhat cheap and a little chintzy. There was little sauce, not much cheese, and the prosciutto looked like regular hame.

We came for a late lunch thinking that it would be better then going on a busy night. We yelled twice and walked around and no one was there. Suddenly a man with a toliet bowl hair came out. He seated us and left. Turns out he was the waiter and there was two other small tables - really? The... More

I don't normally go for Alfredo or Chicken Parmazan but the preparation and service I experienced was certainly the best. I may have over eaten the food was so good.

I'm not a big person. At 6' tall I tip the scales at a mean 145 lbs. I can consume a portion designed to share with 1-2 people and still be hungry. Service is hit and miss as well. Sometimes we have nice, professional, (But still easy going) servers. Sometimes we get lazy ones who don't appear to be enjoying... More

This chain offers a great, albeit very noisy atmosphere, and good food. For what you get it is a bit over priced. I tried the spicy Italian soup tonight. It was loaded with sausage and veggies. A bit too hot for my taste but had good flavor. The green beans are awful which is why we usually order the broccoli... More
