Great family style Italian food, and an outstanding waiter. He was knowledgeable and helpful. The salad was good as was the lasagna.

First off this place only serves family style which means every order is supposed to feed multiple people. The problem is most of the stuff that says it will feed 2-3 people is really just a over expensive normal plate of food. To make it worse, as far as Italian goes it's really not good, just tastes like pasta with... More

Attended and helped with a catered dinner for 72 people and the delivery and quality of food was outstanding. Do not hesitate to use this firm in the future.

We had a good diner but the service was not the best. We were told we needed reservation even though the place was empty. We sat at the and left about one hour later. The tables were still empty. The food was not bad. We had pizza and pasta. The prices were reasonable.

Had heard a lot about this place, So thought this would be great place to have my 50th dinner Birthday. Fun atmosphere, lots of cool photographs all over. Entrees are served family size style either small or large. Great way to try different dishes and split with your friends and family. Was pretty happy with the food, a popular place... More

We were here with a bus tour and how we ended up at this place is beyond comprehension. Can't believe they've received good comments previous. We were in served a bowl of pasta with red sauce pasta (very sweet) and a bowl of white sauce pasta (gummy and tasteless)...sadly we were at the end of the table and by the... More

If McDonalds made Italian food, this would be the place. The food is average, served family style, and the menu is fairly broad. The food is nothing exceptional, always consistently average. Service is good. Prices seem a little steep, but the servings are quite large, if somewhat heavy on pasta.

There was 26 in our pre-booked group on the last Thursday in July, for about 19:00. It’s a large restaurant with character and the staff worked hard bringing out the set menu meal for the two tables our group occupied. It was bland and none of the large serving bowls to help yourself from were ever finished, apart from the... More

Buca has moved 1 block toward lake Union .... I like the entry to their new location...it is more open. They also have an upstairs if you want a private room for a banquet situation as well. The food is classic & good as usual.

This is my third attempt at Buca. My husband eats here with friends and I have consistently been underwhelmed. The salad is bland and the pasta is fair. Today we tried the tiramisu which was surprisingly good. Our waitress was friendly and good at her job.
