If you want a good Italian restaurant experience, go elsewhere. The hostess didn't welcome us or ask if we had a reservation. The server did not introduce herself or even ask if we wanted drinks. She simply stared at us and waited for us to...More

Service was great, appropriately attentive, pleasant and cheerful - knew the menu and helpful when we asked for suggestions. The food was good - ordered pasta - Veal Limon and can't remember the others! It was just VERY pricey for a "neighborhood Italian eatery". If...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.
