Aesthetically, the restaurant looks like a nice little cozy place to bring a date. Didn't eat inside restaurant, but I did order in. Very disappointed with food. Pasta for both myself and my girlfriend was rubbery, ordered one thing then was called back to be told I had to get something else cause they ran out, tomato sauce was bland, order of meatballs only came with three ping pong sized mini balls. Deliveryman was courteous and had a pleasant personality, but if he's also the chef then he shouldn't be too proud. For what I had spent on dinner for two, I was definitely NOT satisfied and felt as if it were a waste of $$$. I was hoping for a decent neighborhood Italian Restaurant.

I can't believe this place is in my neighborhood. It's the best pizza I've had in years, including Grimaldi's and Franny's in Brooklyn.

Unpretentious, cozy, and with very good food. authentic Italian style pizza. good salad. I am told the pasta is terrific,as well. Coming from 30 years in the West Village with wonderful neighborhood, small restaurants, it was terrific to find this place.

Really? Beets in pizza? The most unappetizing pizza ever eaten. I love vegetarian pizza but not beets. The sweetish taste ruins it all..dont order the vegtarian pizza..

Buca is a great addition to the neighborhood. We've only had the pizzas and roasted vegetables, but both are consistently good. Mostly we do takeout but the few times we've eaten there, the service has been great and the folks who work there are delightful. Strongly recommend.

Just tried to order from here, and was told that they only deliver in a 5 block radius, but wouldn't go 7 blocks because they only have "one guy tonight" - seriously?

Food was blah. Pizza, sauce, pasta, nothing great. The service was ok at best. Waitress seemed like she was trying too hard. The chef acts like a little kid while he is preparing your food. Its open kitchen so you see everything. Place is really small and seems disorganized. Will not be back. BLAH.
