“Amazing food”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

Great use of fresh ingredients with distinctive flavorings-lots of fresh garlic and interesting sauces over very fresh fish and seafood. Small but festive looking dining room. Reservations needed.

“Worth a Visit”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

This was our first visit to Buca's, after many trips to the Cape, and we were pleasantly surprised. Our salads were fresh (no wilted leaves), very well prepared - and quite large. My wife wasn't terribly hungry, so had a polenta appetizer for the main course. She wasn't wild about the sweet and savory combination of flavors, but that's just a personal preference. My haddock on a bed of risotto was a daily special, and everything was delicious. The risotto was a bit overcooked, but it's almost impossible to properly cook a risotto in a restaurant setting, and the flavors were delicious. The fish was perfectly cooked. Decent wine list with a good range of moderately priced selections. Even with one dessert and coffee, the check was quite reasonable. Interesting decor, with sort of a pergola using exposed beams and loops of light strings - quite unique and pretty. Recommended, and we'll plan to return on our next visit to the Cape.

“Gourmet Italian”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

We went to Buca's based on Tripadvisor. We did not go wrong.. You must make a reservation because the plase is small. Most Italian restaurants give large portions but the quality may be lacking, unless your in North End or Providence RI. Portions are not large you may leave a little. The food is good, Ecellentl

“Excellent Italian food; great service!”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

This place came highly recommended from the Harwichport inn at which we were staying, and we liked it very much. The food is authentically Tuscan, though the portions are American (larger than in Tuscany) and even challenging to finish. For instance, my Buca's Bolognese was excellent in that the wild boar meat was perfect (and an imaginative twist on the usual sauce), but the pasta was mountainous and slightly over cooked. But these are small points and are overshadowed by the general excellence in the preparation, presentation and service. We will certainly be back.

“Italy on the Cape”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

We liked everything, except many of the main courses are slathered with yummy, but over-rich homemade ricotta.
