“Good for groups”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The food is ok Italian. Not fine dining. Kids loved the "kitchen table". Gigantic portions. Good for large groups.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

It's one of my favorite Italian places. The staff is always super warm and friendly, and the food is excellent! The Spicy Rigatone is one of my absolute favorites.

“Great for parties or special occasions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

This place has awesome ambience of a crowded Italian restaurant with lots of tacky pictures and art on the walls. It's not my favorite Italian restaurant in Seattle (Maggiano's) but it is good for taking a big family or group out and getting lots of stuff to share. The lasagne, spinach salad, and green beans are all awesome. The pizza is okay, and they ususally have some good wines rotating too. We had a lambruscio which was very good. I recommend.

“Great family-style Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Good for large groups. The dishes are a generous family-sized portion, so order less dishes than people. Noisy in a happy way.

“Excellent Service/Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

We went for my nephews birthday. They traveled to be here from a very small town in CA and i was worried they would be overwhemed by Buca's, alas it was perfect. The staff are friendly and carry on with you as if they were your long lost friend. The meals are amazing and we had enough left to party again the next night!
