The restaurant has such good character. We walked in thinking we went into the wrong location because it was a kitchen! They were joking with us saying get out, get out. Then they took us to the table. Pictures everywhere! The eggplant parm and chicken parm were some of the best I ever had. Service was great also!

Buca has a wide menu of Italian cuisine. The prices are very reasonable and location is great for any downtown venue. I feel like I have traveled to Italy when I eat at Buca's!

I have visited several Bucas across the U.S and have never been disappointed. Very well decorated with lots of pictures to keep you occupied. The staff was very helpful, seated quickly on a very busy night and an unusual walk through the kitchen to get to your table. We had a group dinner and the food choices were made ahead of time, but everything was hot and prepared perfectly. The salads were top shelf, spaghetti/meatballs, chicken marsala, and cheesecake. i don't think you will be disappointed.

Great restaurant, lines aren't long, wonderful place to have a large group of friends together, i LOVE the decorations, friendly staff, BUT

EVERYTHING about your food is bland and average. I've been there a number of times (not just this one, several cities) and we order the meatball. HUGE fantastic looking meatball that tastes like..... not much. Try some spices. I realize that some people don't like overly spiced or garlicky food, but as awesome as your restaurant is, why not make the food more memorable? Or at least tasty? Even a shaker of garlic salt on the table would work.

Our party of 4 had New Year's Eve reservation and were seated immediately upon arriving a few minutes early. Unfortunately we did not speak with our waiter for 15 minutes in order to get drinks ordered for our group, and our waiter had been to the table behind us and walked right by us without acknowledging our group. The restaurant was busy but not overly so, as we have seen it much busier during other high profile events. An assistant manager happened to check on us and informed us that he would see to it that we were taken care of. He eventually comped our entire appetizer order (over $30!) on the bill. Our waiter for rest of evening was very poor, and we had to get help from other waiters and servers for drinks, extra plates, to go containers, and utensils. The atmosphere, quality of food, and value once again were outstanding here. Without manager assistance and other helpful waiters & servers the service rating would have been a 1 out of 5--only because there is no option for 0.
