“Great place for a large group”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

This is a great place for a large group. They serve family-style platters for sharing and have huge tables. Of course, the food is great also.

“Great food and perfect for large groups”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We had a group of about 16 for dinner before a concert, half kids and half adults. The food at Buca is always great and the service too is fast and reliable. I only go to Buca 1-2 times a year, but each time the food is great and I walk away wondering why I don't come here more often. This is the perfect vibe for a large group and we wanted something that could accomodate all of us, was lively, but also didn't require us to sit through a 2 hour dinner service with kids. Buca met all our needs.

“Best ever Marsala sauce”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

We were invited to a wedding rehearsal dinner for 26 guests and had an amazing meal. My sister, who planned the meal, said she had excellent help from Molly, on the staff. There were several salads to start...my favorite was the apple gorgonzola, followed by delicious appetizers, which included the Buca trio platter. There were probably five entrees. My favorite was the chicken Marsala. Our outstanding waiter said that Bucas had recently changed their sauce and our party all loved it. Everything else was delicious as well... baked rigatoni, veal saltimbocca, spicy pasta and shrimp, penne with vodka red sauce. For dessert we had a dolce platter so had a sampling of four different yummy desserts. The waiter boxed the leftovers carefully and separately for the convenience of those that wished to take them home. We had a great time!

“Wedding Rehearsal Dinner”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

From start to finish this was an excellent dining experience for my wedding rehearsal dinner of 20.
Our guests loved the family party atmosphere and the great staff! Servers were the best!
We had apple gorgonzola and ceasar salads, baked rigatoni, shrimp penne, chicken parmesan and chocolate cake. All was a huge hit. Can't wait to return for chicken marsala and garlic mashed. Thanks Bucca for making our big night the best!
