Very good food and nice atmosphere, but fairly expensive. The service has been very nice on several visits.

I agree with the first reviewer - this place is great but definitely better for a large group of at least 5-6 people or more. It is loud, tables are big, the food comes in large family-style dishes meant to be passed around. You might feel awkward going just as a couple. Make Reservations or you'll be waiting forever. As for the food, everything was delicious. The Warm Tomato & Spinach salad was absolutely delicious except it comes with morsels of goat cheese that is a little too sweet and soft, almost like chunks of butter that didn't quite get spread around enough. I recommend getting the Tirimisu for dessert, although be warned, it is also very large!

I love Italian and Buca is one of my all time favorites. It's perfect for huge parties as family style meals are their thing. The dishes are big and meant to be shared between groups of 2-4 or 4 or more, but recently they've added single serving portions. If you are looking for a quiet romantic dinner this not the place. It's often very loud and crowded. Though small groups of vegetarians and vegans looking to share can often eat pretty cheaply here so long as you don't splurge on the wines and desserts!
The staff is almost always friendly and seem to know their menu very well.
Always make sure to make a reservation! Oh and parking is in a lot across the street.
