This is a very good restaurant, especially if you love Italian food. It has a deep menu which allows you to go as light (haha) or as heavy as you like. My wife enjoyed the grilled romaine salad and the truffle gnocchi. I also had the grilled wedge salad and the seafood arrabbiata. It was excellent especially since i ordered it a few weeks ago in a different Boston restaurant and it was not very good.
Our server was Kathleen, I believe. She was very personable and knowlegeable.
The restaurant could not find out open table reservation defpiste the fact I got 3 reminders. Not a big deal since we still got seated quickly.

This gem is hidden in a non-descript commercial plaza but don't let that fool you. This is a great restaurant with fairly reasonable prices given the quality of the place. This is my third time there and it won't be the last.

Our party of 6 arrived on time- the first 4 actually arrived 15 mins ahead of time, the other 2 came in on the dot at 7pm. It took more than 1 hour to get our meal. Food was superb, thank you. BUT I didn’t expect that the bill would include the service charge, which I find too much considering that we waited so long for our meal. It’s my husband’s birthday and I foot the bill. I didn't want to make a scene right there and then, so when I got home , I calculated how much was slapped on me as gratuity... 18%!!! I checked your website and couldn’t find any indication that a gratuity of 18% is included right away! I find this practice preposterous. Suggestion: At least indicate in your website or on the bill itself that what you charged was 18%.
I will still tell my friends that food was good at Bucatini, but service is slow, & high%gratuity is pre-determined without customer consent.
Will I go back? I know of other excellent Italian restaurants which are more reasonable.

Hi Olivia, Thank you for visiting Bucatini to celebrate your husband's birthday, and we're glad you enjoyed the food. We're sorry you found the gratuity charge too high. It's standard practice in the restaurant industry to add an automatic 18% gratuity charge to larger parties, in our case 6 or more. We are currently in the process of printing new menus, and this will be noted on them. Aside from that, we hope you will visit us again soon for a second opinion. Thank you

I would most definitely recommend this restaurant. We started with a mouth watering appetizer, the asiago cheese plate. The waitress came over and lit the cheese on fire, it was the best cheese paired with a fantastic bottle of Italian Armani Pinot Grigio. We moved on to the main pasta, it is handmade, in house by the chef. I have to admit, it was by far the best tasting pasta I have ever tried in my life. We were so full, but why stop now! Dessert was also house made tiramisu, as recommended by our lovely waitress. At the end of our meal the owner came over and greeted us with some jokes and a complimentary drink. Not every often will an owner show so much passion for his patrons and his restaurant. The music was authentic Italian music that set the mood perfectly. It wasn't the right time to lounge on the modern comfortable looking patio, I look forward to having some drinks with my girlfriends on the next visit. If you are looking for a nice classy Italian restaurant with outstanding food and service in Brampton, this is the spot. The whole experience was fabulous!!!

Thank you for your review. We're very happy to hear that you loved the food and the restaurant, but it's unfortunate that you felt that way about the service. Surely, there was some kind of misunderstanding or miscommunication, because we would never ask our guests to leave. Hopefully, we'll see you again for a second opinion. Thanks

I've been to this restaurant many times and loved it and especially when they have live music. However, the special mother's Day menu was rediculous Ly priced and not true to the regular menu. The food was good but not worth the price. Also we really expected a better setting maybe with music and the service was a little off. Will go back but not for special occasions.

Hi Aleksandra, Thanks for joining us for Mother's Day, we really appreciate it. It's unfortunate to hear that you did not agree with our special menu pricing, we do our best to stay comparable to other fine dining restaurants in the area. We did not have live music on Mother's Day because we were hoping to create a more personal setting for our customers, and most seemed to enjoy that. We understand that it's hard to please everyone though. Hopefully we will see you again soon.

Booked for a Mother's day dinner. Given a terrible table near the washroom and server area. Was charged an automatic gratuity on a table of 6 people??? Charged extra for "fresh" pasta. Do not recommend.

Bucatini Restaurant & Wine Bar
Responded on 15 May 2019

Hi Katt, We never like to hear that a guest was unhappy with their experience. Had you requested a specific spot when you reserved, or if we had other available seating at the time, we would've gladly moved you. An automatic gratuity is standard at any restaurant for larger parties, especially on special occasions. And the "fresh" pasta is actually homemade pasta that we make, which is why there's an extra charge. Our standard pastas were also available.

Amazing and fun team working there. They were able to accommodate my daughter’s peanut and treenut allergy *and* my food restrictions, which are more complex (SCD), and still serve good food.

My niece folded a napkin like a Christmas tree, and then much of the Bucatini team was watching to learn how.

And a live musician playing CHristmas songs on the piano was an excellent addition to the evening. His volume was perfect - we could hear him fine without being overwhelmed.

It was our anniversary and we went for dinner. It's not our first time at the restaurant but this experience was the worst. It was exremely loud. We could barely bear the pianist. I would not refer a friend to go to Bucatini. The food wasn't cooked as well as it usually is. All the servers in the restaurant looked bored and uninterested. Overall, I was not satisfied.

Hi Luvlee, Thank you for spending your special occasion with us, it's very unfortunate you felt unsatisfied with your experience at Bucatini. We pride ourselves on excellent food and even better service and try to make sure every guest leaves with a smile. Many of our guests love listening to live music, but we can understand that some people would prefer a quiet environment. We advertise when all our music nights will be, so hopefully we'll see you again on a night when no one is performing.

This was our second experience here for me and my wife after having a mediocre experience 2 years ago. We decided to give it another try and we regret that we did. The food was ok but the server was not at all friendly or responsive. Nor was the host upon taking us to our table the menus were put haphazardly on the table and he left quickly even though there were only 2 tables with guests at the time. It was dinner time and dark outside yet the inside lights were turned up full brightness making the ambiance like a cafeteria. Our reservation was for 6:30 and we arrived on time. At 9:00 we were told they needed the table and we would be moved to the bar to finish our wine and order dessert. We weren’t ever told of a “time limit”. We chose to pay the bill and leave. We went elsewhere for our dessert. As we left I asked the host about this treatment and his response was that we had the table for over 2 hours and he needed it for another party that he had booked. No apology, just arrogance to us. We will never be back.
