First we had to wait 20 minutes on our garlic bread (which costs 8 $). It has been served then together with the main dish. The scaloppines were much too thick and the risotto too milky. As they seem to be understaffed, we had to wait another 10 minutes for the check. There are better places to go.

Every time I eat at buca, my taste buds are happy. I love their ravioli and cannaloni. The atmosphere and staff are both great too.

Had reservations but the receptionist had an issue finding. First impression was not good as the entry area outside the restaurant had trash in the plant beds and could used some attention. The greeting at the front was good with the exception of the delay in locating the reservation. The walk through the kitchen was a nice touch. Wait staff was very good. The food as compared to other Italian establishments in Cool Springs and Brentwood was only average. Marinara on Chicken Parm was not warm enough, when asked for additional it came out just warm.

Great restaurant, great ambience and really good Italian. It is a little pricey, but less expensive at lunch. We had the Eggplant Parmesan and loved it. Our server was not great; she kind of acted like we were a nuisance if we asked for anything, but I don't think that is the norm there. Great place to take a date.

I will start to say that our server was very good, professional & friendly. Which he could give a lesson or two, to the hostesses... which were not well organized or welcoming. It was more like: ..."thats right i need to give you a table..." So the first impression was not the greatest but the staff in the kitchen (which you have to cross to get to your table) was very nice and greeted us nicely. The kitchen was spotless (always a good sign).

So this is familly style so opted to share a Cesar and the spicy chicken rigattoni. The portions are huge ! But our server was very kind in explaining it so we did order correctly.

I understand that huge portions are usually more expensive and I get that but this was overpriced. Now before i let it go with just an overpriced dinner review let me get into the details.

The Cesar Salad was sub par, no care just cheap romaine trowed in a bowl with hard croutons. Cheap parmesan. The dressing on the other hand was very good very flavourful and fresh. So this was a let down

The rigattoni was one of the best i had, the sauce was very well builded with flavors and heat, the chicken was moist and the pasta "al dente" so on this one a thumb up.

So the story here is: Overpriced and inconsistant. This is a good familly restaurant with great flavors but there room for improvement.
