This is our favorite place to go when we want Italian food. My boyfriend says this is the closest to his Mom's cooking. Everything we have tried there has been great but we love the warm bread, Baked Ziti and Antipasto Salad. Don't forget to try a Lemon Drop Italiano, hard to have just one :)

Terrific menu, large portions for families to share and the most amazing tiramisu. I wish that there was one in San Antonio so that we do not have to put up with Olive Garden! Everything is handmade and tastes great, just make sure you come with an appetite.

My husband and I visited this restaurant tonight for a late Valentine's Day dinner. I made a reservation for a booth. We were sat at a table and when I told the seated that I made reservations for a booth he seemed frustrated/annoyed that he had to reseat us. The service was slow (although the restaurant was busy) and it... More

We took a group of 4 here for dinner. I had never noticed this place before although I've passed it hundreds of times. Very eclectic decor inside! The food was delicious and the portion sizes were huge. All dishes are family style and family size. Don't even think about this place unless you are really hungry! The service was great... More

We had a family group of 20. Ordered family style. The service was excellent and the value was great. About $20 per person. Didn't have a lot of drinks. The food was ok. Nothing great. But a great value of you've got a big group.

We've been here twice for graduation parties. Both times, our parties consisted of more than twenty people. The service was quite good, considering. Good ambience, good service. I would take company here.

I have been to this Italian restaurant many times. I went there last night for a meal. I was not impressed. The hostesses, about 3 or 4 of them were all talking to each other, when we left they did not even notice us leaving or say good bye or good evening nothing. We had a Asian waitress named Wendy...

We go there often because of the excellent service and food. My wife loves the Apple Gorgonzola salad. Thankfully, it's not to busy during the lunchtime when we bring our kid.

Myself and coworkers took our boss to lunch at Buca. It was their first time and my second. We were escorted to our table through the kitchen. How fun is that. We had a blast. Our waiter, William was great and the food was exceptional.
