    service was awful. The fact that i had to get up after being seated for a long time with my husband and two children to ask for water is just ridiculous. Our waitress walked by us more than four times and didn't even acknowledged us.

    Our service ruined our night. She piled the plates up on our table and never returned to remove the dirty ones or to ask how our food was. We were celebrating a wedding anniversary, which we noted on the reservation as well as when we were seated but she never mentioned it again. She acted as if we were bothering her when we made requests. She was quick to pick up our signed credit care receipt and to check her tip. Ugh...terrible and costly. We won't go there again for awhile.

    Didn’t get very much service other then when food was dropped off. Food came out very very slow. We ordered 5 dishes family style and received each plate separately one by one. Seemed to be very under staffed.

    Mother’s Day The bathroom are filthy and have not been cleaned in weeks, it’s so obvious. The stench when you enter is horrible. The food was ok nothing great. It was not worth a 400 dollar bill for a party of 8. Update the place and clean regularly.

    The food was horrid. Stuffed chicken was rubbery, soggy and inedible. My waiter wasn’t attentive to my family or his own suggestions (ie) suggesting pasta that we ordered and he did not bring. In short, my wife’s Mother’s Day meal was not appetizing. My expectations did not match what I received. My direct feedback here is for growth and not scathing criticism. I will not be back.

    1. Paper napkins were very thin, 1 only for each of us. 2. I ordered the Salmon Sorrento and it was thin and small husband's Baked Rigatoni was ample, enough to take part of it home. 3. Service was very slow and waitress disappeared for long stretches of time. 4. I ordered 2 servings of Chocolate Chip Cannoli and the waitress talked me into getting 1 order and splitting it. What arrived were 3 timy cannoli's. 5. I ordered decaf coffee be serviced with the cannoli. After serving the cannoli, she came back and said coffee would be delayed because she had to make some. 6. Trying not to rag on the waitress, but she was soft spoken and not enthusastic and it was a challenge to order with her. We will never return.

    Hadn’t been for a while, and in fact, had a fairly large catering order three months before, that turned out very well. We ordered a shrimp Diavlo that we have enjoyed before. And a side of green beans. The order still was an hour after 45 minutes, no fault of the servers. She was very attentive and kept checking. When we got the food we were shocked at the size of the portions that are supposed to be family style and priced as such. The green beans were downright awful, kept to the point where they were falling apart. The server had the manager come over. He was terrific and personally made a batch of fresh broccoli and garlic that was outstanding. Loved the flavor of the shrimp dish, and they were kind enough to remove the green beans especially when it totaled maybe 20 to 25 green beans for $16! and also a complementary tiramisu, which was good.…… and large! As I mentioned, the previous catering order was good . Might try again for dinner because they were so conscientious about the make-good With our situation.

    I made reservations for my son and his friends to have a double Valentine's dinner date. My son drove from Aptos to Sacramento (2 1/2 hour drive), waited 20 minutes to be seated for his 7:30 reservation and then waiting an additional hour and a half for his entrees, which never arrived. The restaurant comped his dessert and drinks due to the staffing issue and the fact that the kitchen was running so far behind. My son's party left their Valentine's dinner date without receiving their entrees. It was quite disappointing.

    Christmas Eve at Buca was very disappointing. 2 hour wait for food. Whole tables were leaving. Server was amazing, the only positive part of the night. Appetizer and salad were great, main courses were just okay, We usually go to Buca every year but will reconsider next year.
