Huge portions and a lot of tomato sauce greet you in Buca. We got the Chef's Table in the kitchen and brought the two grandsons. They loved it, especially all the people walking through the kitchen. I'm sorry. I'm really not trying to be a snob but this really isn't Italian food. And, sorry again, no one has a clue... More

Great and delightful dinner with my dear friends. Good presentation of our fave Italian dishes. Servers are polite and very knowledgeable of every dish served in good temperature. Spaghetti with meat balls and pizza were great! Good selection of desserts. We had a beautiful group picture with my friends with our sweetest smile. The photographer is very nice. We enjoyed...

We've eaten at Buca a number of times but this was the first - and last - time here. The food - chopped antipasti was good and we enjoyed it. The bread had the texture of Wonder Bread; really, at an Italian place? Chicken limone was rubbery and tasteless. Supposed to have a lemon sauce, right? Chicken parmigiana was overlooked.... More

Nicest part of my visit with the staff. Friendly, cordial, accommodating. I was there with fantastic people. It's all downhill from there. The environment is a commercialized overload of Italian visual paraphernalia. I asked for the nutritional guidelines which is a federal mandated necessity for a massive chain restaurant like this. They had nothing to offer me. They said that... More

This restaurant is hard to rate because the baked ziti we got was great, the garlic bread was bad (had to be returned once because it was cold), and the service was inattentive (because the place is so busy and it looks like they don't have enough wait staff). Here's the other thing, they do not do individual servings. You... More

Pros: we had the pasta carbonara, was decent. Warm bread served with olive oil. Actually the bread was pretty good. Cons: the first set of entree plates were dirty, still haf a white pasty gunk and were moist. I had to ask the server to nring us back clean dishes. That was to say the least very gross.

Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed our Pasta Carbonara, but fell short with our Apple Gorgonzola Salad. Normally it is made with a romaine lettuce blend. We also apologize for the unfortunate experience with the dirty dishes. We do pride ourselves in great food quality, service and overall dining experience. We really do appreciate... More

My first visit was in 2002. It's still the best Italian food ever. Last week, my family met from various states for my uncle's 50th Anniversary party.

Buca Pasadena is amazing! Great food and awesome waiters! My favorite is Fettuccini Supremo which I reccomend to anyone looking for a more flavorful version of the chicken alfredo. The bell peppers and the broccoli really give it a different taste and they are cut into large pcs so you can take them out if desired.
