At Buca, guests delight in our lively atmosphere, enjoy the classic tunes of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and admire our decor, including family photos and candid shots of Italian-American icons, such as Sophia Loren and Joe DiMaggio.

While I have been very, very critical of this restaurant in past reviews, Buca certainly restored my faith on Saturday. We were sat immediately upon entering the restaurant. The hostess was extremely friendly. Our waitress, Michelle, greeted us and welcomed us back to the restaurant. The service was very good this time out. Our order was taken promptly and we didn't have to listen to twenty minutes of upsell pitches which was refreshing. The food came quickly but not so quick that we couldn't enjoy the fresh baked bread. Drinks were refilled perfectly and the bill was left so we didn't have to wait and beg for it. I told the manager that it was a PERFECT lunch and he thanked us for stopping by.

Went for dinner and Bucas delivered as always. Amazing food and great service from Shawn! We ordered lasagna & chicken parmigiana both dishes were excellent! And novel is complete at Bucas without tiramisu. Wish we only had one closer to home! Highly recommend especially for a large group.

The food is family portions, but the service is a little to cared for. We had a group of 6 people and they just good not get our order right! I would go back, but I would reconfirm the order...

First time at this chain restaurant. We were a group on business coworkers and the food was served family style Large portions are meant to shared and there's plenty of food for the money. Overall everything was tastey and the service was very welcoming & attentive. Interesting and fun decor. Downside--Mall location made it difficult to find for our cabbies.

We stayed at the hotel attached to the mall, so you couldn't beat the convenience.
Staff was uniformly nice.
Food was wholesome but ....average. The marinara sauce lacked flavor. The spaghetti was way over cooked. On our second visit we asked for al dente up front. It came cafeteria style again. We pointed this out to our waiter but told him not to bother with a replacement. But shortly afterward the manager returned apologetically with another bowl of penne. We didn't have the heart to tell her that it was identically overcooked as the first bowl.
Bread basket was sub-par: dried out and flavor free.
Men's room - average.
