In the GTA we have PLENTY of choices when it comes to restaurants. And good Italian is NOT hard to come by ... Two facts that Buca really doesn't understand. We were there Saturday night for dinner with a group of friends (6 of us), and wish we had selected a different venue. The food was good (not great), but... More

We travelled from Hamilton to try this restaurant for lunch. This cozy little restaurant in Downtown Oakville was a treat. The place was not busy at lunch ... we pretty much had the place to ourselves. The Carpaccio was excellent! Followed up with a thin crust custom pizza ... wonderful! My wife had the Lasagna ... it was full of... More

This is a nice small place with a really cozy atmosphere. Service is really good and the food is really good as well. I will definitely return.

Went there for dinner this evening. Had a 6:30pm reservation for four. By about 7:45pm the restaurant was trying to rush us out. They had barely put down the dessert menu, when they were back to take our order. When we said we were not ready for dessert yet - we were still enjoying the second bottle of wine we... More

We are truly sorry that you had a bad experience with us. It seemed up until the time of dessert, the four of you were having a great time. Sometimes during a busy Saturday night in Downtown Oakville and a line up out the door, frustration and stress levels hit the roof. Having said that, it is not an excuse... More

Everything on the menu is great but they have the best lasagna in Oakville! We've also had the veal many times and its always a home run as well.

Lovely, small restaurant in downtown Oakville serving a varied menu of delicious Italian food. The complimentary foccacia and olive spread was delicious. Atmosphere is friendly and the service was very good. The restaurant was a little noisy upon arrival as several groups were in attendance but the noise decreased into the evening. There is a lovely patio I would love... More

I always tell the kitchen to make an extra loaf of focaccia just for me..... There is nothing better then fresh out of the oven focaccia!!!!! As for the noise, I love it when our guests experience a fun time, even if it means they are overwhelmed with excitement!!! More

This restaurant is nicely located and lovely in the summer because of their nice patio. Unfortunately what stands out the most in my memory of it is the brown and yellow bits of mixed greens in my salad. Come on now! If I spotted them the moment the plate appeared in front of me, surely they were noticed but ignored... More

It was a dinner for four. Excellent service with a knowledgable server. He knew everything about the menu and the dishes. Ordered 3 pasta dishes and one rabbit special. Asked the waiter to pair a wine, which he did and it was excellent. Great desserts, good coffe. Will go back.

Was there with a large party on Saturday August 13th. Service was terrible - waiters were running around like headless chickens!! Middle aged men who didn't want to take responsibility for their mistakes with the drinks orders or the food ... Food itself was overpriced for what it was - average at best!! Disappointing for Oakville standards, which are high...... More
