My wife and I planed a nice evening out with out extended family. We were seated quickly. Our drink order was taken quickly and came timely. We gave our dinner order but that was about the last time we saw our waiter. We had to flag one of the bus boys to get drink refills. Food came out, served by... More

I had heard about Buca from other folks but had never eaten there. We took the opportunity while in Iandianopolis. That very well be my first and last visit. The food was run of the mill. Certainly not memorable.

ordered the "small feast", which is thanksgiving dinner for three people. Had good portion of turkey, not enough mashed potatoes, had cranberry dressing, stuffing, and green beans. Dessert was pumpkin pie. Had ordered the calamari as an appetizer, had one draft beer, and kids had soft drinks. Bill came to $92

Was with a group. $22 a head got you two salads to choose: Italian (saw empty bowl) & caesar (caesar salad was bland and weird), 1 chicken parmigiana TENDER (yep), and two different pastas, alfredo (bland nothingness) and red sauce (watery). The servers were kind enough but scant. This was planned ahead so they should have managed it but didn't.... More

Can always count on Buca to deliver good and plentiful Italian food. Tonight's Chicken limone was really outstanding. The broccoli side was pretty, but had too much pepper and was close to cold. Pasta side was big, but the marinara had an odd taste. I ordered a beer, wasn't ask about size, and ended up with a $7.50 tall. So... More

Group of twenty had a delicious meal on Friday night. Wait staff was patient while our group came in - had delicious deep fried calamari for starters, then our table went for salads, lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs, and chicken parmesan. Prices are a little steep, $12.00 for nine ounces of Moscato (I can get a bottle of my favorite for... More

Smallest order you can get us for 2-3 people. The prosciutto Stuffed Chicken was excellent. You can tell the size of the portions by the size of the Tirmissu.

This is not the place for a solo trip. The portions are huge. The menu states that the small is enough for 2-3 people and it is. And the prices reflect that. If you have a group of hungry people who all want some good Italian food, then this is the place to go. But if you are by yourself,... More
