Buca’s Tuscan Roadhouse in Harwich

We had the pleasure of going to Buca’s Tuscan Roadhouse on Saturday evening and had a great experience. Buca’s is located in the town of Harwich and is easy to get to from Route 39 or 28, depending on the direction you are coming from. We made a reservation that day and upon entering the restaurant, were greeted warmly and were offered an excellent seat by the fireplace. I should point out that our initial table was set to be near the door, which was a bit drafty in the middle of February, but the restaurant staff went out of their way to make sure we got seated in a better place (possibly the best place) once another party left.

Thoughts on the Food and Service
I’m no restaurant critic, but overall, we both had a wonderful experience and would definitely recommend the restaurant to others. The only immediate recommendation would be to make sure in the busy season, you call ahead for reservations early, as it seemed that there was very limited seating and it would be uncomfortable to wait an extended period of time in a small entryway or outside.

The roasted chestnut soup was delicious as were the “Gambaretti on Pancetta” – Jumbo Shrimp wrapped in Pancetta (Italian Bacon) we had as appetizers, although they are in a spicy pepper oil, which may not be suitable for some. We both had excellent main courses, my wife enjoying the Merluzzo di Marliano and I had the Vitello Rosa. I would have to say though, that the service from our host and server were really what made the place, as there was definitely an atmosphere of comfortability and quality.
