Overall, I'd say that it was a fun atmosphere and the staff was very friendly Lasagna was a huge portion but just ok/average. It was made to share which 4 of us did and still had a take home portion. Caesar salad was very good and raspberry cheesecake was excellent. Watch staff friendly and efficient. We will go back to... More

Last Saturday night, we took some friends to Buca who had never been before for a joint celebration of our recent wedding anniversaries. My wife and I had been several times in the past and for the most part we have enjoyed our experiences over the years. Even though we made reservations for 6:00 in advance, there was some confusion... More

It is set up to encourage large "family" groups with seating and the menu. I strongly encourage taking a $10 off local coupon or signing up for email club for an offer two days before you go to allow time to receive email. Food was good but is pricy per person. Our service was good. The 10+ group next to... More

We booked an office party and my co-workers were looking at the lunch menu online to decide what they'd like to order before we ventured to the restaurant. Well, when we got to the restaurant we were infromed that office parties couldn't order off the lunch menu. Instead, we had to order from a more pricey menu! So, the chicken... More

Olive Garden is an A+ compared to this place. It was pretty empty when we arrived and were wondering why since we were there during lunch time. Menu "looked" like there were lots of choices but for some reason I could not find a variety of options because everything I read looked the same but with a slight change. Nothing... More

Good for fun times. Food is on the low average side, but the atmosphere is top notch. If you can, sit in the kitchen, if you have a large party, reserve the Pope room. Servings are very large. Good for office parties and large groups of friends. Not good for an evening out for a good meal.

I took a large group of people there for a really fun, filling and tasty dinner. The portions were enormous! This is seriously family style. All the dishes were good and I was surprised at how few dishes we ordered and still all ate plentifully and satisfyingly.
