The food wasn't what met my expectations, but the customer service is good. The marinara tasted kinda dry (wouldn't recommend it. Their Cesar salad was really good though. Was it worth the money? No, I wouldn't think so. Kinda too expensive.

We arrived early but had to wait until 15 minutes after reservation. We were cramped into a small area even though we had asked for a table for 12 people for a birthday party. Service was very rushed. Main course arrived with salad.

The food is family style and amazing! Portions are very large (even the smalls). If you have a birthday you can go to special link to do your reservation and they send you a coupon for a free cake to enjoy on your visit, the cake is large enough for the whole table. The house wines were good too! I love Buca, their food is amazing!

Was not happy with the prices - they have gone up significantly. Service okay, except we had a coupon that they made very difficult to use. It was a birthday celebration. I noted it in my reservation, told the person that seated us and the server was told as well. They did nothing! Very disappointed. Although the food is good, the prices are exorbitant. We have been Buca fans for a long time, but we won't be going back.

3 hostesses were there. Gave RSVP name. All stood staring like unknown what to do. Didn't they take Hostess 101 class?
Servers seemed young and inexperienced. Food pricey and rather bland.
Very loud and disappointed with ambiance and service and food

Food was good but only problem is that you cannot order any dish just for one person.
Dish size is for 2-3 people. I cannot imagine 2 people eating here because you have to share the same thing. Same goes for the salad which is for min. 2-3 people. If you live close-by and can take the extra food home it is O.K. but it you are traveling do not eat here.

We made reservations and still had to wait about 30 minutes. Why make a reservation when there is that long of a wait? The restaurant was uncomfortably loud, there was a small child screaming incessantly at the table next to us..so much so that she startled me and I tipped over my wine glass! So annoying. Parents did nothing about her misbehavior. I had to wait awhile for someone to bring over some napkins to clean up the spilled wine. Food is overpriced. Justification is that it is family sized portions but in actuality it's too expensive for what it is..disappointed they hardly sell anything in a single serving. Only upside is that it's busy enough to keep my kids distracted. Nonetheless, we are not returning.
The spaghetti & meatballs dish was horre ...
The spaghetti & meatballs dish was horrendous! It was mostly water and appeared like it had been cooked earlier in the day, and not to order. The manager was nice enough to comp the dish, but did tell us this is how pasta was cooked in Italy?! Hubby had lived there, and we had just returned from a trip to Rome. I can assure you, the Italians do not eat bland and watery pasta. We had to laugh at her comment. The salad and appetizer were tasty, and we probably should've stopped there.
