There are not many restaurants in San Francisco with this much room who can cater to large groups of such sizes. Buca's is a must-have dining experience for people who want a lot for a decent price. And when I say a lot I mean family style bowls of steaming pasta that resemble cattle troughs and meatballs the size of oranges. Buca's is a noisy place great for a Saturday night out or to take your family and friends for a large rowdy birthday dinner. While the decor is tacky, you should not overlook the fact that Buca's is nicely located a block and a half from the Sony Metreon complex.
