I dont know why people think this is italian food. IT is a step up from olive garden, but that isn't saying much.. IT tastes like pre-manufactured food which no love was given when making it.. It isn't terrible, but it isn't good!

The high ratings this place is getting is mind boggling. Price is decent, portions are large, place has a nice old school Italian feel, but that's where it stops. The food is terrible, very poor taste, and service leaves a lot to be

since the take over the change in chopped salad and dressing is very disappointing.we would come from Waukesha for "our treat" a chopped salad and a spaghetti and garlic bread. the change in all these products is not what we call , in the interest of the customer. the garlic bread is a total disaster compared to what it use to be.is this what happens when a big corp. takes over and the concern turns to saving a buck!! the atmosphere and the service are still excellent, we like "Lisa". hope to see the old come back, or we stay in Waukesha.Steve and Georgie sexton414-217-6348

Wow. I came to this place about four years ago and it was good. However, I don't know if the management or staff has changed, but it was AWESOME! The food was so original it reminded me of my Granmother's cooking form Calabria! I was

come here on an empty stomach. don't eat for two days prior to arriving. the food is good and there is a lot of it. Buca's is best experienced with a huge group of people to enjoy the huge bowls of food. This place sould be on our city's travel guides. It's an experience you won't soon forget.

My husband and I have eaten at Buca's many times and enjoy the delicious food and festive environment. If you're planning to go, I'd recommend making reservations by phone or online. Without reservation, you may have to wait awhile.

Nice ambience and good downtown location,decent sized bar, off-street parking (while it lasts) are the good points of this restaurant. But in the end it is still an average Italian chain restaurant. Two occasions left me with a bad taste

I had heard of this place for so long and finally went. Well, it was not good. The garlic bread mentioned previously as being the best ever........hardly. It is the worst garlic bread I have ever had. Maybe the fact that I have grown

I can not believe with all the real Italian restaurants in this city that Buca is at the top of this list, the food here and at the Olive Garden is generic! It isnt that the food is bad it is just that you can do so much better! There

After visiting this place only thing I can recall is the quantity of the food not the quality. Service was poor and servers weren't attentive. The food wasn't impressive and parking wasn't easy neither. In conclusion just say no and don't

Please, Bucca is a chain restaurant with a chain feel, I would think Milwaukee would have better taste than naminating a chain for best Italian, when there are so many wonderful mom and pop places to go to!

Are you people not aware that this "restaurant" exists in every city and most suburbs in the country? It's as phoney as Applebees, and the only thing good about the food is the quantity. It does not deserve to be on this list, you are
