THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bucci's Restaurant Review

: On a busy street in the industrial enclave of Emeryville, nestled between Berkeley and Oakland, sits this warm and personable neighborhood restaurant filled with regulars. In the mornings the espresso machine creates a constant buzz and pastries line the curved bar. Sunshine dapples the outdoor tables and shines in through the giant south-facing windows onto the exposed brick walls of this reclaimed warehouse. Lunch and dinner offer similar menus with approachable dishes that could satisfy a celebratory table as easily as a lone diner nuzzling up to a newspaper at the bar. A spinach salad arrives bursting with bright green leaves topped with pink pickled red onions, chopped egg, olives and feta cheese, and the Caesar salad is a fine rendition of the classic. Individual pizzas are blessed with a crisp crust and a revolving list of tasty toppings. Entrées are hearty, from the grilled salmon with shoestring potatoes to the braised pork with a ragoût of fresh peas and wild mushrooms. A strawberry trifle with Muscat zabaglione and balsamic sauce is upscale in contrast to the homey hot fudge sundae with vanilla bean gelato. Look for a shortened menu of soups, salads, panini and cocktails at the bar weekdays from 2:30 p.m.-5:30 p.m.

Bucci's, we have been there before and enjoyed the food and wine; however tonight was a big let down, the service was horrible. The food was sent back by several tables, while we were there, and the wait staff proceeded to argue and bicker right in front of us over god knows what restaurant drama.

Our server, came to our table once, and then proceeded to ask us if we were ok from a distance, by putting a thumbs up. If I wanted that I would have went to Taco Bell.

To bad, we were celebrating and we decided not to waste our time or more money on BUCCI's. We left to go to another restaurant.

THE SERVICE SUCKED. Next time try the female wait staff, they seem to smile and be on top of things. As for me and my party, Bucci's will not be in our vocabulary anymore.
