I really like the food here but would note that if you are from an area that is known for Italian food you may find this place to be just okay. I grew up in Chicago and was blessed with exposure to some of the finest examples of Italian food. I moved to Houston and there just are not any... More

It was not busy or crowded. I always order the baked Ziti because it is a good Vegetarian dish that I also make at... More

Carb up before your next race at this place! Great portions that allows everyone to try! The decor on the outside is a bit run down, but when you get in - it is so cool! You will want to watch

It was during the week. The restaurant was not busy. Meeting friends for dinner. We started with a caprese salad, which my husband and I shared. It was good. I had a chicken dish and my husband had a trio of pasta. The chicken dish was just ok; not flavorful. It was served with nothing. Everything was ala carte. I... More

We decided to order Buca for Christmas Day and bring back to the house instead of cooking all day. Too much going on to cook or to reheat any food so Buca was our choice. It was delicious. We have always done the tradational turkey but this year we did a pan of Lasagna and pan of Alfredo with salad... More
