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

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

I love authentic Italian food and this is the place to go. I had penne in vodka sauce and it was finger licking good. The atmosphere is cozy. Price are good and food is plenty so bring a good appetite.

We have been to other Buca's (all in So Calif) and have never been disappointed in their food or service before this visit. Server seemed new, we kept asking other people for things our server should have brought (like small plates for our appetizers, salt etc) The garlic bread was good and also the soup of the day but our...
