We stopped here for an early dinner before a concert. Quarky italian decor gives you much to look at! Bucca is served family style, a small dish will feed up to 3, and a large will serve up to 6. Service was fast and friendly.

Buca's is always filled with great service, great food, and a great time!!! Excellent every time I've been there! It's always most fun with a large group because sharing the food offers many opportunities to try several dishes.
