Frozen Food (the food is frozen and then cooked?) – If you like frozen food that is frezzer burn and hard try the baked dish on the menu (Chicken Cannelloni
Pasta tubes stuffed with chicken, spinach, ricotta and mozzarella cheeses with a hint of lemon zest and nutmeg, baked on a bed of rosa sauce.) I order this dish it was so bad i was better off going to publix and buying a frozen dinner from their frezzer.The chef pretty much said so bad so sad call our corp. office
Terrible food no flavor, musky smell inside,overpriced. – 1st time going to this resturant and it smelled. I have eaten at several italian resturants in the bay area and have never had such run of the mill meals ordered 3 drinks (coke products) cesar salad that had brown leaves for 12$ also two main dishes food was bland and tastless.
overall poor experiance.
Get cozy with friends and family and enjoy an Italian feast at this loved-by-locals restaurant. – In Short
Homesick for your mother's Italian cooking? Grab your appetite and head to this restaurant, where the friendly wait staff will serve up portions of Colosseum-esque proportions, like spaghetti and meatballs loaded with savory tomato sauce and lots of pungent garlic. Dishes center on Southern Italian immigrant fare, and are meant to be shared family-style with a large goblet of wine-to enhance the taste, of course. The ornate décor with walls covered in vintage photos evokes a warm homey feel that welcomes customers to dine among the other families and loyal customers. Buon Appetito!
Reserve the kitchen booth – The Antipasto salad and the garlic bread were to die for. If you like chicken try the Chicken in lemon with capers. A glass of non house wine was a bit pricy, and the desserts though very good were the same fare as most other local restaurants. Come with an appetite as the portions are not small. If you plan ahead you can reserve the kitchen booth. You are in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the kitchen and are shown all of the dishes prior to them going to the tables. The kitchen booth is just plain fun. We wanted to try several menu items but knew we could not eat all of the large portions. So as we tried each one they boxed up take home when delevering the next one. Everyone was extreemly friendly, and the chef was a riot. They have a take out service that I use at lunch to grab a salad and bread on occasion also. Overall if you're looking for a good family atmosphere, good Itialian food, and a relaxing dinner, give it a try.
Good Italian made better – Absolutely the best place to get Italian!
The food is only enhanced buy the fun atmosphere and the wonderful servers. I can say, along with my girlfriend, without hesitation that this is the best Italian chain restaurant that weve ever experienced. We recommend it to everyone we know, and theyve all agreed. She use to be a BIG Carrabbas fan, and Id always preferred Romanos Macaroni Grill, but once we ate a Bucca it was all but over for those two. If youre looking for a truly fabulous Italian Meal and a fun atmosphere you have to go to Buca, and dont forget dessert I recommend the triple chocolate cake!!!
Simple Hearty Family Fare – Which I'm not particularly excited by. But I did enjoy their rich and fun cannoli roll dessert with candied pistachios and an ocean of chocolate pudding/mousse. Service was very friendly, and prices were reasonable.
