My husband and I went here for Thanksgiving and had the full turkey dinner. It came with sausage stuffing, whole cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, green beans and bread. Every thing tasted really good. I wasn't expecting much since this is a restaurant that specializes in Italian food, not turkey. But I was pleasantly surprised. Food was served in a timely... More

Located in Oakridge shopping mall this is an excellent place for Italian food for large family gatherings. The food is well-cooked and served quickly. Generally one does not have to wait long for a table and if you do, there are memorable photos posted all over the walls to remind you of Superstars from past years. The portions are truly... More

The short version - the food is good, the service isn't, although I have had the occasional good service here. If you are there on a night when Patrick is working at the bar and you are seated in the bar area you will likely have some of the best service you have had in any restaurant. If not, in... More

Party of 12 on Christmas day? No problem! Good family style service of traditional Italian dishes with a 50s vibe. I appreciate their generous service and healthy food for a big group.

There was a large noisy party going on, which received the blame for all the things that were wrong. There were not a lot of other customers, so it seemed like a restaurant of this size should have been able to handle it. We waited to be seated, then after ordering we waited 40 minutes for our food. We were... More

The restaurant is in Oakridge Mall, facing the outside (i.e. you cannot get in from inside the mall). Parking is challenging in the lots in front of the restaurant, best bet is the parking structure, which is a few minutes walk. Get a reservation, if you dine at Buca with big groups. Walk-ins usually involve quite a bit of wait.... More

This must have been a bad night for this location.... arrived at 6:30 PM and were seated shortly thereafter... when we ordered (before 7PM) they were already out of calamari and had to go out and pick up more salad. Out of items at 7PM? Did anyone check the inventory? Was anyone in charge of the inventory? What we had... More

We made reservations 3 days prior and had heard this was a good spot. I can honestly say it was my first time experience with family style but it worked out to our advantage. Being from Boston I was fortunate to have tried some of the best Italian Restraunts in the North End. Ok food was good not great. Spaghetti... More

We went to this restaurant two days after Christmas to celebrate my wife's birthday. We sat down to a half filled restaurant and ordered appetizers and meals for my 4 grandchildren.
