Had a quick lunch at Buca today and I was quite impressed. Had an Italian soda, a HUGE meatball and some cheese raviolis. I grew up in a northeast Italian family... so I know what good pasta (and sauce) SHOULD taste like... and Buca was RIGHT on.
Food was well priced, came out fast, FULL of southern Italian flavors (garlic, basic, fresh tomatoes), and some solid service.
Overall great restaurant - much better then I would think you could get in a mall location.
Just be warned... the meatballs... ARE HUGE!
