Tasteless Pepperoni Pizza and a pasta swimming in cream, very poor food indeed. Service was ok but the restaurant was quiet.

“Some of the worst food I've ever eaten”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

I stay here regularly for shininess, and whilst the hotel is nice, the food at the restaurant is some of the worst food I have ever eaten.

I have tried many of the dishes - all seem to be as bad as each other. For example: a starter of melon and Parma ham came coated in olive oil, black pepper and basil. So much so that you couldn't even taste the melon or ham. Another example was the roasted mediterranean vegetable pasta - this came swimming in oil with some tomatoes and cold olives, and coated in cheese. No other vegetables in sight.

If you do have to eat here, I would be really clear when ordering to say exactly what you want. The kitchen staff (obviously not chefs) don't follow what is on the menu at all so it's highly likely you will be left disappointed.

“Poor food and poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

A poor restaurant with young staff who act and sound like they work in a fast food chain. It is not their fault as becomes apparent when they ask if you have eaten there before? then proceed to explain the "bucc-enonomics" of how it works in bucca. Avoid this restaurant unless you like cheap fried food. There are much better places to eat 10 minutes taxi ride away in Poulton.
