"The server was great, but that did not make up for the food. Overall the soup disappointed me. It was inexpensive, but not my type. I don't think my client liked it either. Lasagna was not the best I have had, so for that reason I would probably not return. There was also some kind of a presentation, loud clapping including which was a bit disturbing."

"The food was fantastic. Ambiance was great and even though the server was super nice... That was the slowest service I've ever seen. We were seated at 7:04PM, The appetizer arrived 10 min later which is understandable the salad came another 10 min later but the main dish did not arrive til 8:06PM."

"Food was classic Buca, good. Service was bad. Normally I would write off bad service to a particular server but this is the second time in a row we've had bad service at this location. Seems like a pattern."

"When we arrived, they told our party of five they were running 20 minutes behind on seating reservations, but they didn't have a pager system or cell phone system, so you had to stay close, and the lobby and bar were jammed. However, it actually took an hour beyond our reservation time to get seated. At the same time, the tables of 8+ were still waiting after an hour and 30 mins. Also, people who checked in after me, arriving late for earlier reservation times got seated before me, so the best strategy with this restaurant appears to be to arrive late (their computer doesn't seat based upon on-time arrival, so arriving early or on-time is a waste of your time). They appeared to have two big problems I could see: First, some people seated before me were walk-ups that arrived before the 5PM reservation crunch, and while one reported he waited 90 minutes for a walk-up, accepting these walkups pushed back all of the opentable reservations. Second, they appeared to be way understaffed as far as bussers. Walking around the restaurant several times during our wait, I saw up to a quarter (or more) of the tables unbussed, and as we ate, some remained unbussed for nearly an hour while other parties waited outside. The wait staff was fast and the kitchen was fast, so I wondered why others didn't help with bussing. Also, the only busser I did see was very slow, taking several trips to bus even the smallest table. Also, the manager up front, while keeping the angry customers calm, mostly just used his intercom to repeatedly list the next five table sizes he needed, while completely ignoring the phones. As someone who tried to call earlier and didn't get an answer, I felt for the people on the phone, which was usually lit up with several unanswered lines. Stuck in my mind are some of the frustrated and more vocal people who waited 60+ or 90+ minutes, receiving applause when they finally got their table - I haven't ever witnessed applause used as sarcasm before."

"Had a great lunch with my family at Bucca. Our waitress was great! The service was awesome and the food was delicious. We ordered a pizza, chicken dish, and salad for the table. It was plentiful and beautifully prepared."
