Went there with my family on Christmas. Even though we had a 6:00 reservation we were not seated until 6:45. They were understaffed and extremely slow and unapologetically so. The food was cold and overpriced. Horribly managed operation. Will never go back.

Decided last minute to head over to Buca. Food was really good and the wait staff was very helpful with our entree selections. Getting seated took a bit but it was very tasty.

We were visiting our daughter and she wanted to take us to her favorite Italian restaurant. It was really good, in fact, one of the best I can remember eating. Staff was very friendly. We will eat here again.

We really like Buca. This was our first dinner; usually it's lunch. The food was, for the most part, very good. The eggplant (skin) was tough and not very flavorful. The server forgot to bring one in our party a beverage until reminded. Then she...More
