We gabbed takeaway pizza and salad here for dinner. Super fresh wood fired pizza with lots of topping and salads that aren't all about the iceberg and romaine lettuce! Friendly owner and hostess couldn't do enough for us. Great for locals as well as travelers staying at the nearby Hampton Inn.

We ate at Bucatini's Friday night, 4/4/17 and the food was really mediocre at best. The service was good. We noticed that the place was not even half full so people are recognizing as we did to the poor quality of food for a medium to high price. The place used to be packed this time of year plus since... More

I came here with my wife and another couple for dinner. The ambience is nice and the staff friendly. There is a full bar and draft beer.

I had a lovely experience here - the outdoor seating area is really pleasant and the service was excellent. The garlic bread and fried mozzarella appetizer were both very delish. The caesar salad was nicely done, and the salmon pasta was quite tasty. I really enjoyed my meal here, would definitely recommend this as a nice place for lunch or... More

We had been to Bucatini quite a few times before. Went there for lunch & the service was slow & when we finally got our food, well, not good. My husband french fries were cold. The waitress took the plate back & brought out over fried french fries. I ordered grilled salmon over a bed of pasta with olive &... More

They couldn't find our reservation but they finally gave us a table. Service was very slow even though they weren't that busy. Food wasn't that great either.

Our "usual" Italian restaurant was closed so we went to Bucatini's, which we saw in a strip mall. The walls above the booths were dirty. The prices were excessive. The spaghetti I had was barely graced with sauce. The bread is toast.

Disappointed in the meal we shared egg plant parmigiano and it was quite bland tasting and had to be sent back as it was only luke warm. Will not go back.

Selected this place based on TA reviews and was not disappointed. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Ambiance and happiness vibe were good. Everybody seemed to be enjoying themselves. Prices are fair and the selection is appealing. This will be one of our new go-to for Italian.
