“Very dark, expensive and bad service”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

I went to La Bucca with my husband and a couple of friends who wanted to eat there. The place is not ugly itself, however it is very dark and you can barley see the other people at your table. As well, the menu has only a few options and generally expensive ones. My husband asked for a Coca Cola and instead of bringing a 1.5 L bottle they brought him only a glass with Coke. I would not recommend it.

“good drinks, too dark”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

A real bar - with real drinks - made well. Now if only I could see my hand in front of my face, I would love this place.
