“Great food, great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

If you subscribe to the Buca's email club, you will get great deals emailed to you periodically, almost every time we eat there, we are getting something free. And the food is consistently great!

Warning: it's family style; the dinner entrees are enormous and sides are a la carte.

This is a chain I frequent while traveling and on business.

“A lot of food!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

The portions are huge! it can be noisy which I think is good because at least everyone is minding is own business. Great place for family and friends. You have to have a great appetite for eating because there is a lot of food on plate!

“Great Italian food with enormous portions but noisy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We love eating here when in an Italian food mood! They have an extensive menu and readily offer suggestions if asked. The quantities are huge even for big appetites and we love their calamari! We have signed up for their email and often receive great discount coupons for meals. The only complaints we have is that even with multiple smaller eating areas the place can be very noisy and the portions are so big that we rarely have room for dessert.

“Worth going again.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

The food was delicious. Although the baked Ziti was a little dry for my family, I thought it was good. The chicken parmigiana was incredible! Caesar salad and chopped antipasto were great starters. Lasagna was great too. I haven't tried the non-sauce based items but want to next time. Service was ok, not as good as in the past but not offputting.
