The portions are family style, i.e., LARGE and the food was very good. Truly enjoyed the calamari and the salad. The veal and chicken were excellent and the shrimp Florentine very well prepared!

Have been here many times... it's a family favorite. We always order way too much food, despite always being reminded that the plates are large enough to share. But it is all very good! They have smaller rooms available for more private gatherings. Fun decor and service is what you would expect for the price point. We will be back!
We are happy to hear you are a loyal customer of ours and can't wait to have you back! More
The food here is very average. The price can only be justified by the huge portions. Service was good, but nothing special. Probably great for families and large gatherings, where the social aspect is more important than the food. But I don't recommend it for a couple dining out.
Thanks so much for the feedback. We pride ourselves in delivering great service, food quality, and overall fun dining atmosphere. We hope you give us another try! More
I have not had a bad meal. Typically been 8-15 people for dinner. Very family oriented. Can be loud. Favorite is the lasagna
The lasagna is a family favorite! We had are happy to hear you had a great time and hope to see you again soon! More
Not sure why it appears Buca's food is so so average now. Last 4/16 visit, we ordered to go their: Penne al Forno, LIgnuine Frutti d Mar, and Checkin Cabonara. At best, all dishes were very average.

Even the music that added to the ambiance was too low to have any effect. Yet, it was the bland quality of the food that... More
We order carry out because we had a coupon $10 off of $20.....we order Baked Ziti and Chicken Carbonara lunch size and it was enough for two people. And for dinner we had Penne San Remo and Lasagna.....we order a small size which is plenty for 3-4 people. The best was the Chicken Carbonara and the Baked Ziti. The Penne... More
I've been to this restaurant twice; this is my first review of it. First time. The first time I went, I was ready to love the place from the moment I walked through the door. The decor is great, authentic, a sense that there is history and a family behind this enterprise; there is. . . . a sense of... More
