Great Italian food and atmosphere. My favorite is the apple gorgonzola salad. So good! My only criticism is that they play music a little too loud. It is hard to carry on a conversation sometimes.

I admit I have had better experiences at this place. But this experience was horrible. The service was atrocious. They were way understaffed. A manager finally had to come over to service us. The food was very watery and extremely average. The servings are huge,...More

Buca is one of my favorite Italian restaurants to go to. Their food is fantastic, I especially like their meat sauce! They serve it a little skimpy for my taste. They always give me more without charging extra for it. The portions are huge! There...More

Buca is one of our favorite places for take out or dine-in Italian food. The waiting area is very small so during peak hours it is very crowded while you wait. The variety of dishes and excellent food will be worth the wait. The atmosphere...More
