Came here for a family outing and we have been to several Buca's. They never disappoint. First time we tried the bruchetta. We will definitely get this again. Pizza is good and the chicken parmesan is always a favorite.

Meals are served to share and so for the three of us (a couple with a child) we ordered a pizza and a pasta dish. Our only issue with the sharing was that we all had to go bland to please the little one (hence...More

The meal was okay. I had a coupon and spent three time more. The restaurant was not busy, but we hardly saw our waiter. The atmosphere was cute, lots of old pictures. If I ever go back I will maybe get a pizza.

This Buca restaurant is really good, the food is basically like home made with very large portions. You get one small plate and with that you can feed 2 or 3 people.They have a lot of choices for appetizers, entrees, pizza and salads.

Had never been there before and was surprised everything is served family style which makes it difficult to order a single dish. As there was only my wife and I it didn't really allow to order individually. Good place for group or family. Food okay
