Take a group and your appetite

This is the 3rd Buca I've been to. They are all pretty much the same (pope room and all). This one is pretty much like the others. Consistent. Really good food. Gray atmosphere. A good place to have celebration meal.

We have been many times for famiy birthday parties and work events and each time I am left disappointed in the service and quality of the food. While the atmosphere is fun and unique, the food leaves much more to be desired.

Service was a bit slow, but we did have a party of 10. That is where the complaints end though, because the food was so fantastic we forgot about the wait! The spaghetti with meatballs was to die for, and I don't even like meatballs! We had 4 dishes, and enough food for 20. The portions are enormous and every... More

We were really looking forward to trying this restaurant. Got there around 7:00 and had no wait. Server was prompt in taking our orders. We ordered two entrees among the three of us. The menu stated that each would feed 2+ people. The entrees do not include any sides or salad. The Shrimp Fra Diavolo ($24.99) came in a large... More

Although our visit started off poorly (waiting 30 minutes past our reservation time because the hostess thought we were already seated), it was worth the wait! The manager immediately treated us to an appetizer due to the above mentioned situation. We ordered our favorites: lasagna, eggplant parmigiana, and shrimp and pasta. EVERYTHING was delicious! Our server, Marco, was courteous and... More

I am writing the review from the perspective that the service was so bad, the chefs didn't stand a chance. We waited 15 minutes to just get a waiter to approach our table, and that was the shortest wait if the night. Drinks took another 15 minutes, dinner was 30+ minutes, dessert another 25 minutes and 15 to get the... More

We ate here following a graduation. They did a great job serving our large party. We ordered the Lasagna along with the Warm Tomato and Spinach Salad. They were both outstanding. The dishes are served "Family-Style" and was plenty for our family of 6. Our male server was very attentive to our needs! We also enjoyed the restaurant environment. It... More

I have been eating at this location every few months for the last eight years and have always had a wonderful experience. I even purchase gift cards to give out on holidays but don't think that will happen again after last night's experience. We stopped in and ordered the same things that we always have.
