What a busy place!!! I made reservations for our group of 8 months ago and arrived on time but still waited over 30 minutes to be seated. The restaurant is very loud, so hard to hear conversation. The food was fantastic! It is family style so we got 3 small appetizers-caprese salad, calamari, and garlic bread! We also orders 4 large entrees- chicken parmigiana, chicken saltimbocca, fettuccine Alfredo and spaghetti with meat sauce. We also wanted to try to pizza so we ordered a small pizza with arugula lettuce! Full bar with amazing drinks! We all had plenty to eat and actually brought home a bag full of leftovers. Definitely an amazing restaurant but would like to try it during the week when perhaps it would be less busy!

This place was like having dinner at my Nona's kitchen. Great Italian food, served family style, and fairly priced for the amount and quality of the food served. The antipasti salad was to die for! Definitively a place to try. Warning: go hungry and expect to eat like
a famished destitute.

Buca's is always filled with great service, great food, and a great time!!! Excellent every time I've been there! It's always most fun with a large group because sharing the food offers many opportunities to try several dishes.

My family and I were on a spring break adventure in April 2018, and stopped in for lunch at Buca.

We were immediately greeted by friendly staff and seated in a quiet area. The layout of the restaurant is a little strange and confusing, like a labrynth. It was hard to figure out where the bathrooms were.

Our server really made the experience for us the entire time. She was genuine, friendly, and had a wonderful personality (I think her name was Cristy?). She made recommendations and explained the menu to us. Based on one of them, we tried the white wine sangria... Absolutely delicious!!

The food portions were enormous! I added a photo of the meatball size that my daughter got with her meal. It was as big as her head! Everything was well prepared and very tasty. The garlic fries were addictive.

The decor is very interesting and fun. However, the lighting was very dim for lunch time.

We enjoyed our experience and would recommend this restaurant to others!

Our group of high 100 high school students arranged to have dinner on a Friday night. The restaurant promptly seated our group in one area and almost immediately brought out lemonade and ice tea for drinks. Baskets of bread and a dish of seasoned olive oil were also delivered followed by a nice salad. Our group had fettucine, chicken parmigiana, and spaghetti which was served family style. I thought the family style presentation/servings were just for our group but learned later this is how the restaurant serves all their food. We had large chocolate chips cookies for dessert. Throughout dinner we had good service.The spaghetti sauce wasn't overpowering. The atmosphere is fun and you can tell they've been in business a long time. I'd recommend this restaurant for any group or family.
