Get cozy with friends and family and enjoy an Italian feast at this loved-by-locals restaurant. – In Short
Homesick for your mother's Italian cooking? Grab your appetite and head to this restaurant, where the friendly wait staff will serve up portions of Colosseum-esque proportions, like spaghetti and meatballs loaded with savory tomato sauce and lots of pungent garlic. Dishes center on Southern Italian immigrant fare, and are meant to be shared family-style with a large goblet of wine-to enhance the taste, of course. The ornate décor with walls covered in vintage photos evokes a warm homey feel that welcomes customers to dine among the other families and loyal customers. Buon Appetito!
Go with a large crowd – This place is not meant to be experienced by yourself or a couple. Bring your Crazy Aunt your Fat sister. Joey no neck fromdown the street. Get lots of family style portions and SHARE them you will love the huge portions and noise. Fun and loud
Terrible.... – I got the salmon with pesto (to go) -- the vegetables were cut into chunks and just thrown into the oven so that they cooked unevenly -- the carrots were not cooked enough and the zucchini was mushy. The salmon wasn't great, the pesto was bland and they forgot my potatoes. NOT RECOMMENDED (especially for the price).
We love Buca! – We love Buca & it's family size portions are great for groups, but when there's just the 2 of us, even the Buca-for-2 size portions are huge. The food & atmosphere are always excellent, with a good selection of wine.
