Very enjoyable classic caprese salad and breads. Wasn't impressed by pastas at all. Average at best. Ordered cheesecake and Italian creme cake for dessert and the cakes were hard. Too expensive for what it is. Will probably eat at this chain again just to try other options and compare.

We visited this Buca location again after many years, and were again pleased! We were lucky enough to get the kitchen table this time, and the staff were great from the Paisano Partner Iain and the mgmt staff, to our server Amber, to all the other Buca "familia" there that night. We had family members with us this time and... More

Review for Party Reservation This restaurant is close to our church so it's been our go to restaurant. We've never had any complaints until now. Thats why it was a no doubter for us to book with them for my Mom's birthday dinner. For a reservation you have a pre selected Dinner menu that starts at $25pp. They require an... More

The decor is hoakey and actually cool. The food stands on it's own with deliscious pastas and great broccoli on the side to almost keep it healthy. The service is great, food comes quick and pricing is fair. Where else can you eat with The Pope at a fair price.

I took my mother there for Mother's Day and had a reservation. With the reservation we had to wait another 15-20 mins....I get it, it was a busy day. It's very expensive for the type of food they serve....nothing fancy, stick with Olive Garden! The things I did enjoy was the mozzarella bread(Which I think was 11 bucks) and the... More

Great apple gorgonzola salad and the shrimp Diablo had great spice. Room was cold though. Great ambience with old photos on Wall. Look at picture above the entrance!

The portions are huge, the food is good, the price is very reasonable. I guess that is why this restaurant is always busy, which is probably also why the service is slow.

It doesn't take a lot to impress me, but I was so underwhelmed at this restaurant. We went there for a birthday party. We ordered an overpriced bottle of wine. Appetizers were sad. When our entrée finally arrived, it was cold. Fettuccine chicken Alfredo is not difficult to keep hot. Our server kept disappearing for good chunks of time, and... More

My wife ordered the Shrimp Fra Diavolo, I ordered the Penne San Remo, both almost inedible. Wife's shimp were on the edge of fresh (smelled) the pasta was done correctly but the overpowering fishiness of the shrimp and sauce rendered it a pass.

We were s group of 7 friends meeting for dinner. We shared 5 dishes and a large Cesar salad with an average Cabernet and the cost was $38 per person tip included! I just founded it a little pricy for average taste.
