“Favorite Honolulu Italian Resturaunt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2007

Incredibly delicious entres prepared with all fresh ingredients.
Everything is made from scratch and served family style. The decor is impossible to describe. It must be seen to be believed.
Once you've been there you'll want to return again and again. Restrooms are spotless and service is attentive.

“GReaT SeRViCe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2007

We've been to Buca in Anaheim & Las Vegas. The Ward Warehouse location is the BEST service we've experienced. From the start when we first walked in all the way till the end walking out. Food as usual is excellent and filling. But I felt like a special guest with all the attention provided to make sure our meal and the time spent was to our satisfaction... and WE WERE SATISFIED. GREAT JOB and ALOHA to the restaurant staff for the WONDERFUL experience.

“Loved the "experience"!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2005

My wife and I have always enjoyed their sister restaurant in Boston, so we had to stop here to try it out. We were not disappointed.

Yes, the ambiance is over the top, but that's half the fun. Lots of colorful posters on the walls, and you can get a tour through the kitchen on your way to your table that's a hoot. It can make it a little difficult to find your way out after a big bottle of wine, though, since you can't leave the way you came in! Waitstaff is great in giving directions, asking things like, "Did you see the Pope's hat in a room you went past?".

Our waiter was right out of the 50's in his demeanor, sitting on our table as he described his recommendations that night at the "da Booc". We're inveterate peolpe-watchers, and this place did not disappoint here either. On one side, there was a large oriental family celebrating a birthday. A little further down the room was a family of four out of the 70's, and everything in between.

The food was very good, Italian-spicy without relying solely on garlic to give it a punch. Since we were staying at a condo, we made good use of our waiter's admonition that "the portions are huge" to get a second meal heated up the next evening in the condo.

If you're anywhere near the Ward Center in Honolulu want good Italian food and a good time, make sure you give this place the opportunity to entertain you. You won't be disappointed!
