Take your appetite! Portions are large. Plan to share. OK, so they have the quanitity part covered, but what about quality?? Gourmet! Many of the dishes are truly gourmet. A shrimp, pasta, spinach and tomato dish in a garlicy olive oil sauce was superb...and even good the next day cold. A chicken, stuffed with mozzarella, ham, with an herb-dusted crust, was sinfully topped with a pesto cream sauce! No pasta needed with that dish. If you like salads try the Apple Gorganzola or the 1893. Loved everything we had!
Oh, the decor is worth the trip. Historic (and hysterical) photos of celebrities and common folk. Conversation starters on all walls and some ceilings, too.

This restaurant food is average and the atmosphere reminds me of a spaghetti western. Nothing special

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.
