This is a great family restaurant. Their pasta dishes are for sharing so it is better if you have a group going. They have individual dishes too, and I have enjoyed everything I have tried there.

Buca in Thousand Oaks is a great looking place but........We will NEVER EVER go back again!!! First It is definitely NOT a place to go without a crowd. since they only serve large portions for 4 people or more. We hadn't gone to Buca in a long time because it can get very expensive for very ordinary food. However Since... More

I have to admit that we went with a coupon, but the portions were good, the waitstaff was very attentive and... More

Part of a larger chain, this local Buca is everything you'd expect in an Italian restaurant chain. Generous portions and good quality. This is our go to for easy Italian dinner date nights.
