Funny place to eat with friends

While the food was okay, the best part of our group lunch was the service and all of the hilarious art and memorabilia!

I wouldn't take my kids, however, because some of the stuff on the walls is not PG.

Good Italian.

We went to the Buca's near the Robinson Mall and were seated very promptly. Our waitress was very efficient despite having to serve a huge family as well as us. A pleasant surprise is that they now have Buca Mio -which are single serving portions of favorite items. My husband's pasta serving was an adequate size to share but my chicken (mio serving) had only one chicken breast which was just enough for one. We liked the decor but it was a bit on the noisy side. We enjoyed the dessert and loved the frozen peach bellini.

Reservations? Dont bother!

My friend and I went on a sunday evening. I called @ 4 to make a reservation for 5. When we got there 5 minutes early there were tons of people waiting. We said we had a reservation and the very rude hostess told me it would be a couple of minutes. Ok. Then after waiting a half an hour and after others were seated before us (larger parties) we were seated. We were on the third floor and there were 5 open tables! The food was ok but you have to spend a fortune to get a full meal. I ordered Lemon chicken and I got 2 half chicken breasts and a little sauce for $14.99!!!! No pasta or anything. Be careful when you go and I suggest using coupons. I wont be back. Nothing to draw me back at all. P.S. Bathrooms were atrocious!!!!!!!!

OK Food

The restaurant food was 'OK'. The server was very nice, and was appreciative of our guests. I guess I can't say anything wrong about the place, but I can't rave about it either.

Good food, bad hostess

Our group made reservations for a weekend night and arrived on time to find the vestibule full of people. We didn't worry since we had a reservation. However, after waiting for nearly an hour, we were finally seated. At no point did the hostess ever inform us as to the status of our table and forced us to take turns fighting through the crowd to go and ask her. People is groups as large as ours were seated before us and they had reservations that were after ours. No explanation was offered for this. When we were finally seated, our waiter treated us kindly and the food was delicious. At the end of the meal, the hostess came to our table to apologize and to also inform us that she was not only the hostess, but an assistant manager as well! While we were comped for a bottle of wine and some breadsticks, I don't think a free meal could even entice me to visit this establishment again.

Good food, not so good ettiquette

Gotta say the food at Buca is real good. I've been there with my wife and friends a few times and have always enjoyed the food. Taste aside, the place is a bit cramped, especially with bigger groups, and even though they have changed the menu to accomodate couples (they didn't use to have options for just two people..mostly a group place in the recent past) you are feel a bit limited in what you can get unless the entire party you're with likes the same things.

The worst thing about Buca was made evident to me on our last two visits. The most recent time we've been there was disappointing, not because of the food, but we went for a friends birthday party and the host/hostess staff not only ruined the surprise even though they were told not 15 minutes beforehand that it was intended as a surprise, but we were really surprised the way that Buca sends a manager over to tell you when you should leave the restaurant, because they have other people coming in to be seated. Keep in mind, this is JUST after we finished dinner, we hadn't been sitting there for any lengthly period of time....so this has tarnished my opinion of them, as they do rush you out almost immediately after dinner, so I probably will not go back for a while as we are finding other good italian places where you can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee and desert without worrying about when someone is going to come over and tell you its time to leave.

All this said, great italian food for groups, but I would recommend that you go a bit earlier on a Saturday night to avoid the huge crowds and to avoid feeling rushed when you finish.

Not good for single diners

Ok, almost everything on the menu is a 2-person portion, so single diners won't feel very welcome here. So my waitress steered me from the pasta I really wanted and I had a pizza instead. She had them make me a HALF salad too, though it wasn't on the menu. One small pizza one glass of house red wine, one half salad, $35.50 including 15% tip. The wine was wonderful, the salad was very good, the pizza was good but not spectacular. Unfortunately they're not open for lunch as some Bucca di Beppo's are, that would likely solve both the price and portion size problem.

Shameful eatery.

Do you even wonder why they have to put so much junk everywhere? Ambiance? Hardly. Its to distract you from the fact that their food is so horrible and wildly overpriced.

Italian? Just barely.
