Fodor's Review

The staying power of Buca di Sant'Antonio—it's been around since 1782—is the result of superlative Tuscan food brought to the table by waitstaff who doesn't miss a beat. The menu includes the simple but blissful, like tortelli lucchesi al sugo (meat-stuffed pasta with a tomato-and-meat sauce), and more daring dishes such as roast capretto (kid) with herbs. A white-wall interior hung with copper pots and brass musical instruments creates a classy but comfortable dining space.

It just didn't click

Perhaps we went with high expectations but the mood and service came up a little short. The food was great (if a bit pricey) but we never seemed to connect with our waiter. We didn't want to become his buddy but a simple smile, once, would have made us feel that we were actually present.
