Lots of average food

Loads of food for a fair price, the red sauce was just a red sauce, nothing special. Family or business dining it is fine and takeout service is good. Nothing special....

The food was good, however, heavy and without distinction. For those who like family style american Italian food, this is a good place. If you like upper crust Italian cuisine, take a pass.

Very good food that is serve family style. A little on the pricey side but very good food. eating areas are rather small for a restaurant, so if you are not comfortable in small places I wouldn't recommend it. However if you don't mind small places. It is a very comfortable atmosphere. Good Italian food, If you go early in... More

Went with several business partners to discuss work and have a beer or twenty. Appetizers were great but the calamari was freaky. perfect texture and not chewy. I can honestly say it was the best I've ever eaten. Pizzas we ordered we amazing. The crust was different but still good. Great dining experience!

Buca is a quirky place with various little dining rooms to choose from..my favorite room is the kitchen..one booth where you can watch the cooks and the servers bring various dishes by to show you as they head to delivery in the dining room. arrive hungry..dishes are meant to be shared! The food is wonderful and plenty!

I went here with 2 friends and we all enjoyed the food. It is served family style so we ordered 2 entrees we could agree on. I ate the lasagna and it was very good. Definitely worth going to again.

There's plenty of parking at this restaurant and the portions are large enough to share as the salads are also. This makes it a great value. The food is good with a typical chain menue. There's no fancy Italian cooking here but it is good. I love the big meatballs . There's a warren of rooms and noise varies from... More

We had a birthday dinner for my grandmother in the semi-private room with a bust of the Pope as a centerpiece. The room is fun and great for a big group (we were 14). Tavo, our server was very attentive. The food and wine was good.
