Most of the appetizers/antipasti were in the $8-$12 range. The pastas were mostly $16-$20. The polenta with veal/ricotta meatballs and sausage (which was more substantial than the pastas) was $26 IIRC. We didn't order any primi, but I think they were in the $24-$30 range.
Our group of 7 ordered 7 alcoholic drinks, around 4 appetizers, 3/4 sides, 4 pizzas, 3 pastas, 1 gnocchi, 1 polenta and 3 gelati, and the bill came around $500 including tax and tip.
I thought the price was fair, and I think my dining companions did, but I have other less foodcentric friends who think Buca is expensive for what you get.
The portions are more along the lines of what one would expect in an upscale restaurant/osteria in Italy, rather than what you'd expect at a trattoria. This isn't the place to go for a hearty Italian meal in TO. The portion sizes are similar to what I'd expect at Zucca, the Wine Bar or Globe Bistro.
