Took a chance on Buca's based on recommendation on busy New Year's eve and while we waited 45 minutes they got us in and food and service were excellent. Nice family atmosphere, generous portions and great desserts.

We ordered Take Out for Christmas Eve and when we got there, we knew that the staff was clearly not ready for the business. Orders were not ready and the line was growing. I am not sure what happened but I was not impressed. When we got our order finally after about a 45 minute wait, they forgot to put... More

WE celebrated our mom's 88th birthday in the Pope's room. It was nice for her,something different, but I was not impressed with the food and also thought it was way overpriced. I would not go again. We had problems with the service as well. Our server was rather unpleasant so we requested someone else and she was great.

Went for early lunch and service was slow to nonexistent and they weren't even busy. I ordered soup and it was luke warm, not much flavor and no salt on the table. We got oil and vinegar to start but no bread and the kids were hungry. It's a family style restaurant so was shocked that they brought crayons for... More

I was warned that Buca restaurants can be loud, but it was overwhelmingly loud. Two members of our group really couldn't hear anyone, so we ate and headed right out.

Good food, fun atmosphere, but really big portions. This is not a place for 2 people. If you order the large lasagna, you will never eat lasagna again! It was enormous!

Love this location, folks are friendly and helpful. We like to sit in the bar area for date night, when with family to other areas of the restaurant are better. Portions are large enough to share, the wine selection is good . You can have a great time , however, it can be abit pricey. .
