I recently went for my B-Day dinner and we had a total of 21 people. 12 children and 10 adults. Due to the number of people when I called to make reservations I had have a pre - fixe menu, which was all good. When my family and I arrived

We were well behaved, planned on spending a good amount, and felt like Buca was a good place to enjoy a friends birthday. UNFORTUNATELY our waitress and her manager didn't believe this was the case. \r

This is a great family restaurant. Great food and good atmosphere! Good prices, good portion, good service.

I HIGHLY recommend getting the larger portions and splitting it amongst eachother. definetly go with more then 3 people, because that allows you to get a lot more variety.

Price wise, it's not too bad for your wallet, maybe $20 at most if you split the bill amongst everyone without alcohol.

For desert, i recommend the CHOCOLATE VESUVIUS!!!! It's sooo delicious, don't leave without trying it! :)

I am very particular about the Italian food I eat but this food is great! Large family style portions so be sure to share OR order from the one section on the menu thats specifically for individual people. I've tried a bunch of different

The food is completely bland. The pasta usually comes out half cooked, and the sauce tastes like spagetti o's. If you are in the mood for a lot of high priced food with mediocre flavor, I'd cook at home.

I have been here 3 times and I would say it is pretty good, not great. It is great for a large group, so that might make the difference. The Chicken Parm is good and so is the Salmon. I would skip the fresh mozzerella marinara. I

Pros: perfect for group dining

Cons: wait up to 45 minutes

If you're in the mood for serious italian food - this is probably not the place to go to. But if you're looking for a good time with a large group of people - it's a good choice. Very festive atmosphere - and you'll get full.

It always sound slike a great idea when someone suggests going there, but no matter what, I have a stomach ache that night and no matter what we order or how many people, it's too much food. I feel so wasteful throwing half of the meal away.
I don't think I'll ever go back, unless they scale down the "Dinner for two" menu to "Dinner for one" and we have a group of three. The spumoni sucks, too.

This place sucks. Okay, maybe if I was going with a big group of college students it might be fun. That is if you enjoy shrieking kids, bland food, and wine that tastes like grape juice. People who like this food must be used to getting
