Bucci is pronounced as Boo Chee. Technically, when you have to c's together in Italian, the first one has a "k" sound; thus Boo Chee becomes Book Chee but the o's are pronounced long as in the word "tool." Nevertheless, my family has always pronounced it Boo Chee.

Finally, the accent in on the first syllable, i.e. BOO chee.
