“Worth an Occasional Visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Food selections are "family style" with two plate sizes to choose from (small & large), so it's best to review the menu on-line, then discuss and settle on common likes prior to visiting the restaurant.

Our party of twenty one ordered a variety of items including a four cheese pizza, pepperoni pizza, veggi pizza, chicken cannelloni, fettuccini alfredo, apple gorgonzola salad, mozzarella garlic bread and prosciutto chicken. My wife wanted lasagna, so we ordered the small size which was more than plenty for two people. Food selections are a la carte.

All the food was good, and the chicken was the most popular entree, which will be our main selection with the next visit. The large size order of fettuccini alfredo will easily accommodate at least six people. The mixed drinks we tried had good substance.

Since selections are a la carte (includes bread), the bill can become a little expensive for a small party, if ordering a salad and something else to supplement the main entree. Buca usually markets with a $10 off coupon to pursue customers, so keep an eye out for these to reduce the bill total.

“Great atmosphere, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Went with another couple. The portions are huge, but the food is only average. The prices match the portions, but not the quality. It's fun if you haven't been there before, or are with a large group.

“Nice but expense.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Recent visit - split a meal, salad, bread. Apple cobbler type dessert and service was awesome! With one drink each and a 20% tip - dinner was $85.....a wee bit expensive for a mid-week meal out.

Will continue to go from time to time, but not this level of spend.

“Excellent place for a birthday party”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Went for my nieces birthday party. Great service, awesome food, great atmosphere. We ate at the Popes table, as we have a little history with the Pontiff. The house Chianti is a good wine at a decent price.
