For three years we have had dinner on New Years Eve at Buca. There will not be a forth. We ordered Eggplant Parmigiana and Chicken Limone. The eggplant was so burned that it could not be cut with a knife and the chicken came without the lemon sauce and also very over cooked. We requested to talk to the manager,... More

Our party visited last New Years Eve for an early dinner & had a wonderful meal, so we decided to visit again this year. The garlic bread was dry lacking both butter & garlic. The entrées ordered all had to be returned (Chicken Picatta & Eggplant Parmagen) because they were totally overcooked, dry & had little or no accompanying sauce.... More

Bucca is in the Governor's Square Mall. We have been here several times and each time we always get a good meal. Bring your appetite, it's a family style restaurant and some of the prices may seem high but you get plenty of food for that price. would recommend this place.

Decided last minute to head over to Buca. Food was really good and the wait staff was very helpful with our entree selections. Getting seated took a bit but it was very tasty.

We were visiting our daughter and she wanted to take us to her favorite Italian restaurant. It was really good, in fact, one of the best I can remember eating. Staff was very friendly. We will eat here again.

I have to admit I've never seen a Buca's I didn't like. We had ten people and were seated at the round table in the Pope's room. The service was great, and the food delicious. All Buca's are good, but the one located in the Governor's Mall in Tallahassee, does a great job.

I think in all I have been here about five times. Four of them have been since December. I have been more than satisfied with the food, the Brocolli Romano is wonderful. All but one of the dining trips were during the afternoon. From creating my own pasta bowl to ordering their creations, my wife and I have have always... More

We really like Buca. This was our first dinner; usually it's lunch. The food was, for the most part, very good. The eggplant (skin) was tough and not very flavorful. The server forgot to bring one in our party a beverage until reminded. Then she informed us she removed the charge from the bill. However, when the check was delivered,... More

Been here many times and we go every year in December for my birthday and my parents anniversary. For some reason the food wasn't as good as before and the service was really slow. Don't know why things are different but I hope it gets better again
