Great local Italian eatery

Tried 'Buca' for last minute dinner option and really liked our decision. They had added smaller entree options not too many years ago and we opted for small sized combination stuffed pasta dish, a marsala type chicken dish and mixed salad. All three selections were well prepared and 'delish... read more

The food is southern Italtan(Sicily) and served family style. Each menu item can feed 4 - 6 people. Our family usually orders too much food, but that is ok, it wrms up very nice for later eating.

I would like to take the time to thank Jessika for making my evening very special. For someone who is a new server on staff; she handled herself like a true professional and did the job as if she has been doing this kind of work for many years. Jessika did a fine job making me feel warm and welcome.... More

My wife and I used to come here all the time, but now that we have two kids, we don't get out for dinner as much. We decided to meet some family out for dinner this past Saturday. The food hasn't changed since my last visit...you can always count on very good authentic Italian food. However, the service has definitely... More

We went in for a quick lunch today thinking we could grab a quick salad and head back to work. It took 40 minutes from when we ordered to when the meal was served and that was with two requests for updates on our meal. On top of this the soup bowl was chipped and the cheese on the mozzarella... More

food is very good; especially the ravioli lunch item, which is a bargain price; bread is also very good and you can use coupons to bring down the price

The waiters were fantastic (among the best I ever had). The food tasted very good but the kitchen was very slow. My group felt the food was worth the wait.

We took our grandchildren to B d B last weekend. Many other families were celebrating various events - including a birthday at the next table. Portions were huge and food was tasty - all served family style. The canneloni was particularly good and other dishes passing by looked scrumptious. With no alcohol, the tab was under $80 for 5 persons... More
