“Very Average”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Great service,nice atmosphere, but very average bland food. Review is based on spaghetti and meatballs, apple gorganzola salad and canellonis. Salad was well presented, fresh, but extremely salty, and I do like salt. spaghetti sauce was extremely bland, and a small amount based on the total amount of pasta served. I did not like the meatballs at all. Finally, canelloni, although very fresh, the filling was very sweet and "pasty". Definitely not creamy enough.

Large quantities of food, even the small sizes feed at least three people. As far as value, the total price was fairly high for two people, around $65 , which inclded tip, but no alcohol.

So, in my opinionit is average at best. I would definitely go to Carrabas, or Olive Garden for the money.

“Out of the can red sauce”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

A bad American restaurant chain specializing in family style Italian food. Everything is oversized and had the out of the can taste.

“After dining at the original Buca's in Minneapolis”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

I used to live downtown Minneapolis and went to the very first Buca before they even became a franchise and the atmosphere is totally different which to me was the most fun about going there--I loved the food, but here it's just not as great.

“Great Italian Food”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

This is some of the best Italian food in the U.S. We eat there every time that we are in town. Have never had a bad meal at the Frisco location.
