Saturday was our first time at this particular spot but definitely won't be our last! Located on a quiet short stretch of Locust St, there is on street and garage parking nearby. The atmosphere and menu are geared to adults and older children, the staff were friendly and efficient, the bar area was quiet but picked up after 7. The food was great, good size portions and not overloaded with pasta. My partner had the filet which was cooked perfectly. There was no of being rushed either. Prices are a bit more than what you would see in a suburban chain place, but the food was individually prepared and very much worth it. We watched a waiter do a table - side prep of a fish dish.

Food was not worth the price! Atmosphere was old and outdated. Drinks very expensive! However the waiter was good. Was very disappointed with food. Would have done better going to Olive Garden!

This restaurant is good, waiter is friendly and attentive, and food is nice. Tips: (a) better call to make reservation. (b) Avoid days that they have private parties, in those days master chef is occupied with party stuff.

Ristorante La Buca is great for dinner celebrations and intimate dining. Reservations are highly recommended. Service was good. We enjoyed a three course meal. Serving size is a good portion.
