I've visited Buca a few times and the food is just okay. Both of my parents are from Italy and my mom is the best Italian cook in the world so any Italian restaurant has a lot to live up to in my book. Buca is fun. The music and decor are great. However, the food leaves a lot to be desired. My last visit, I ordered a soup and salad. The salad was good but the minestrone tasted rancid. I've had their pizza in the past and I just don't like the thin, crispy, hollow crust. I've been to Italy and had a very similar pizza there so it is authentic, just not my taste.
