I love this restaurant! This was my first time eating here and it did not disappoint. It's family style and the servings are generous. We got the spaghetti and meatballs which tasted like my homemade, so good! The meatballs were HUGE! Also got the Italian soda which I loved but some may think it's too sweet. Would definitely eat here... More

This is a great restaurant that specializes in serving family style Italian meals. These can be very economical for large groups like we were. And the food was excellent, served up in a uniquely decorated dining room. Great fun! We also ordered take out pizza one night and that too was excellent and very well priced. There are so many...

We spent all day at Disney and we were looking for a restaurant close to our hotel with a minimal wait. I called a few restaurants nearby and Buca was the one restaurant that told me there was about a 20-25 min wait but it could change and they don't accept reservations. I was in their parking lot when I... More

Such a fun restaurant with great tasting authentic Italian food. The family size spaghetti portions feed 6 adults with leftovers. The meatballs are the size of a baseball and extremely flavorful. There's a good selection of seafood dishes to chose from. And their cheese bread has thin slices of garlic which one of the best garlic bread.

Ate here on our arrival after a very long travel day. The restaurant is conveniently located by the Hampton Inn and Suites in Garden Grove. Family style Italian food. Friendly staff, very helpful as we had never eaten there before. Calamari were excellent. Meatballs were huge and pasta very tasty. We were super hungry and there was still food left... More

It is always difficult to find a place where a large group can enjoy dinner at a reasonable price and have some privacy. This is it. Good food and the staff was wonderful. We had a good assortment from the menu including many vegetarian (no meat) options, like Caprese salad and delicious baked salmon. Everyone had a fun time.

We ordered some "to go" food while we were staying at the Embassy Suites located right near Buca. The staff was very helpful and assisted my husband to order the right stuff. The food was DELICIOUS!

The bread was delicious and portions are big. But I think it's overpriced. It would be better if a soup or salad was included with a dinner entree. They did a good job of singing happy birthday to our daughter and the candelabra was an added surprise.
