This place needs total remodeling! The carpet looks like it's been there forever! The red walls and red string lights, the pictures on the wall doesn't really add anything rather than make you feel you're in a cluttered garage! The food on the other hand is an ok Italian not the best! The only thing that I felt was good... More

I love the food. Very authentic Italian food but the place is old and has not been remodeled in a while, therefore the awful closed air inside! I would love to go there but only if they would do some remodeling of some sort so when you go inside it does not feel that you are in an old smelly... More

We went there for lunch. I had low expectations because I looked at the reviews...we had a coupon. I didn't mention the bad reviews to my friends because I didn't want to spoil it for them. I had the lasagna and I thought it was pretty good. My friends had baked ziti and chicken parmigiana. We also had garlic bread... More

My family and I used to love this place. Fun atmosphere with decent food. My husband and I had dinner after Christmas shopping all day. Long story short we had to sit at the bar or wait for 45 minutes. They were very short staffed. There were lots of open tables however, not enough staff to accommodate. We waited a... More

So we decided to give it another try and have dinner at Buca after having a really bad experience for lunch a while back. Our dinner experience was better (honestly anything could be better). We were seated in a half booth half table. Our server was very attentive at first while taking our drink order and appetizer order. After the... More

We celebrate family events here several times a year, and last night was a terrible experience. We arrived last night as our group of 8, with our adult kids ranging in age from 18-27. We were celebrating two of our children's birthdays. Our kids like the ambiance there, and it is usually festive, but the manager on duty last night... More

Went this evening with two friends. One had been there before. We arrived at 7:00 to a nearly empty restaurant. This seemed very odd for a Saturday night. We were seated in a booth and I immediately smelled a musty odor. It lasted the entire time while there. We shared an antipasto salad, good, but a little too much dressing.... More

I came on National Pasta Day with a free Small Pasta coupon I had received for signing up for emails with them. It was a slow Monday night, so I was immediately seated in one of the nooks of the restaurant. My server was super friendly and sweet, and I noticed she was one of the better servers in the... More
