For Valentine's Day, my Sweetie and I went for the first time. We read good reviews on Open Table, but the photos didn't do the place justice. Even though the restaurant was very busy, we received good service. Very good bread. We had Shrimp Florentine. Very good!

We came here on Sunday night for a birthday dinner. We were not disappointed. Our Servers: Steven and Jason(brothers) were so Smiley, Friendly, and very attentive. Drinks were refilled w/out asking and the bread basket was always full. Enjoyed the birthday song with all of the servers singing and smiling at the end of our dinner. Our Food: We had... More

Ate here with our staff and players the night before our game against SJSU. The restaurant had a genuine family environment and the service was excellent. Tried several different pasta dishes and they all were delicious, would highly recommend for any family or business get togethers.

My husband and I went here for Thanksgiving and had the full turkey dinner. It came with sausage stuffing, whole cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, green beans and bread. Every thing tasted really good. I wasn't expecting much since this is a restaurant that specializes in Italian food, not turkey. But I was pleasantly surprised. Food was served in a timely... More

Located in Oakridge shopping mall this is an excellent place for Italian food for large family gatherings. The food is well-cooked and served quickly. Generally one does not have to wait long for a table and if you do, there are memorable photos posted all over the walls to remind you of Superstars from past years. The portions are truly... More

The short version - the food is good, the service isn't, although I have had the occasional good service here. If you are there on a night when Patrick is working at the bar and you are seated in the bar area you will likely have some of the best service you have had in any restaurant. If not, in... More

Party of 12 on Christmas day? No problem! Good family style service of traditional Italian dishes with a 50s vibe. I appreciate their generous service and healthy food for a big group.

There was a large noisy party going on, which received the blame for all the things that were wrong. There were not a lot of other customers, so it seemed like a restaurant of this size should have been able to handle it. We waited to be seated, then after ordering we waited 40 minutes for our food. We were... More

The restaurant is in Oakridge Mall, facing the outside (i.e. you cannot get in from inside the mall). Parking is challenging in the lots in front of the restaurant, best bet is the parking structure, which is a few minutes walk. Get a reservation, if you dine at Buca with big groups. Walk-ins usually involve quite a bit of wait.... More
