The pizza is excellent, the decor is fun, but the wait staff... we always have the impression that we are crashing an employees only social event. We have been twice, and both times the staff only waits on us after they have completely finished their conversations with one another. They are abrupt, as if our simple act of ordering food...

We reserved the kitchen table for 7:30 and we even called 15 minutes before to verify. We get there and they gave our table away. We talk to a the manager who was weak and feckless, who threw his hostess under the bus for double booking the table. Sad! As a military man this was unacceptable. They ruined my moms... More

all entres are family style i.e. have someone that wants to share or be prepared to have a carry out when leaving. Everything on the menu is separate. Bread is brought to table with oil for dipping before ordering. Salad nor Garlic Bread come with the meal. We ordered Fettuccine Alfredo and the pasta was clumped and not al dente... More

Awesome food & excellent service but can be a bit loud at times on the weekend. Desserts are wonderful. Highly recommend the lasagna & canolli.

Very enjoyable classic caprese salad and breads. Wasn't impressed by pastas at all. Average at best. Ordered cheesecake and Italian creme cake for dessert and the cakes were hard. Too expensive for what it is. Will probably eat at this chain again just to try other options and compare.

We visited this Buca location again after many years, and were again pleased! We were lucky enough to get the kitchen table this time, and the staff were great from the Paisano Partner Iain and the mgmt staff, to our server Amber, to all the other Buca "familia" there that night. We had family members with us this time and... More

Review for Party Reservation This restaurant is close to our church so it's been our go to restaurant. We've never had any complaints until now. Thats why it was a no doubter for us to book with them for my Mom's birthday dinner. For a reservation you have a pre selected Dinner menu that starts at $25pp. They require an... More

The decor is hoakey and actually cool. The food stands on it's own with deliscious pastas and great broccoli on the side to almost keep it healthy. The service is great, food comes quick and pricing is fair. Where else can you eat with The Pope at a fair price.

I took my mother there for Mother's Day and had a reservation. With the reservation we had to wait another 15-20 mins....I get it, it was a busy day. It's very expensive for the type of food they serve....nothing fancy, stick with Olive Garden! The things I did enjoy was the mozzarella bread(Which I think was 11 bucks) and the... More

Great apple gorgonzola salad and the shrimp Diablo had great spice. Room was cold though. Great ambience with old photos on Wall. Look at picture above the entrance!
