Osteria La Buca?

Haven't been to La Buca since they enlarged the space, and just wondering how everything is now that the restaurant has changed? We used to love this place, and just want to make sure it is the same quality, etc. Also, any recs???

Thanks Chowhounds!!

  1. Don't think the remodel is finished based on a drive-by within the past week or so.

    1. So the expansion has finally happened? I'd also be curious to see if their early standards have been maintained. La Buca used to be just about my favorite Italian place in town before the secret got out, and then the subsequent crowds and uneven quality put me off it a bit.

      1. I am going tonight and will report back on whether or not the expansion has happened. Sounds like it has not yet! Hopefully when it does happen, it won't change things a bit.

        1. I was driving home on Melrose Sunday night and it definitely was not open then. It may have opened in the last couple of days, but as of Sunday, the addition was still boarded up, although the original La Buca space was open.

          1. I drive by La Buca almost every day and the barrier was still up as of last night.
