Good food, have enough time for service.

Time of the day is immaterial. It is always packed, but has enough space to accommodate party of 6-8. Food is good, enjoy their bread with olive oil or order some marinara while appetizers come.

This restaurant has a lot of potential to get a 4th star and even a 5th. The decor is fun, busy but is starting to show its age. The service is good but can be pushed up a notch. The prices are a tad high for the food and service. It is a family style dining which means you order... More

Entering the dining room is sort of like going to your grandmother's house, if she were a hoarder. All of the tables are very close together and there are so many little decorative items on the table there is barely room for your food. The whole vibe is old and yet comfortable at the same time? On to the food,... More

Excellent service and the food met our expectations. Very pleased considering our group consisted of 9. Family style dining worked well as everyone was able to eat a variety of items. Don't pass up dessert!

We took 3 of our friends to dinner and enjoyed the night. If it is your first time to dine here, they will give you a tour of the place. You will pass by the kitchen first and your tour guide/waiter will show you the different rooms to dine. There are so many pictures in the wall that are old... More

This review contains a number of mixed feelings about Houston's Buca location, the layout, kitschy decor, even the canned music. The staff, I am pleased to say, was very warm and friendly. Several times I was asked, "Is this your first visit?" The staff seemed genuinely interested in helping with any questions I had about the menu. The food I... More

Great lunch menu, more food than we could eat. Loved the atmosphere, excellent service. A little pricey but worth it.

My family took me there the night before Father's Day and luckily they had made a reservation because it was packed. This is a family style restaurant where they have two sizes of servings. The small feeds 2 (don't believe it, it really feeds 3+) and the large feeds 4 (again, don't believe it, it feeds much more). The comments... More

The food here is much better than other Italian restaurants I've been to. There is no need to add salt or anything else to the dishes.
