    Outstanding overall experience. Ordered the Osso Bucco and Veal and both meals were terrific. House Chianti was a perfect accompaniment. Ambiance and service were perfect, the very antithesis of most chain restaurants. Can’t wait for our next visit!

    We had early dinner on the patio. There were no other guests as the place just opened and it was Tuesday. There was some music in the background and Olivia provided us with out standing service to make up for the lack of patio atmosphere. We enjoyed the food and wine and will go back for a patio lunch while the weather permits.

    Had many a great meal and evening at Buca. This was not one of them. Service was rushed . Food was only ok. On the special list, one of the dishes came with asparagus. When we asked to swap out rapini (yuck) that came with a dish for another vegetable, was told that rapini is the only vegetable tonight. Hey, about that dish with asparagus......? And roasted potato side was virtually non-existent. Based on past experience, expected better.

    First time to Buca di Bacco. The service was very good but that they were under staffed. Our waitress was very good but she just had too much to do. The food was fantastic and we will certainly look to go back. We also asked for some bread- seems that most people do not get bread any longer- but the bread was so good. Always like soaking up the sauce with the bread because licking the plate will have people looking at me weird. Great food, great service, nice atmosphere and we will be back.

    Our waiter was working hard on his own on a busy mid-week lunch hour, a likely consequence of the toll the pandemic is taking on service staff recruitment. I choose Bucca di Bacco for lunches with good friends when I am not pressed for time. The food and the welcome is worth waiting for.

    When we first arrived, we were greeted by the bartender/hostess who was not wearing a mask even indoors. I asked our server about it, specifically if she had an exemption or something. He said no and that she probably just forgot it in the back and that he would remind her, but she never put one on in the subsequent 2+ hours we were there. It made me feel uncomfortable since she is making the drinks and we have an unvaccinated young child at home. The food was fine, but not good enough that I would come back given the laxity of masking. Get with the times!

    The food was delicious!! Just disappointed the server (along with 2 other staff we saw) was not wearing a mask. It turned me off the restaurant as soon as I walked in to be honest. It’s very difficult as a server to be socially distant when you are serving customers at their tables, I often backed up my chair when he came over as I felt he was very close to my face. Other than that, food was delicious! Wouldn’t go back though, for the simple fact of not feeling 100% comfortable.

    Very much Enjoyed our meal and service our first time at Buca so much we returned. Disappointed with food this time. I ordered Veal with lemon sauce which was tasteless. The Caesar salad not much better. My husbands Marsala was “all right”. Certainly not the quality we expected from our first visit. The poor wait staff were run off their feet either someone called in sick or they overbooked for capacity. I’d like to go back and try again as I am conscious of this being a one off and very much like the location and restaurant ambiance but based on this I would have to warn friends of inconsistency.
