This place is amazing for big parties!!! There are different rooms with different themes or you can even eat in the kitchen! It's family style so they put the food in the middle of the table and you get whatever you want. Not only was the atmosphere great but the food was excellent. The lasagna was the best I ever had! They give you so much food that we all ended up taking some home and the lasagna is just as good warmed up. I definitely recommend this place!

Olive Garden has been fantastic the last few times we've visited, so they're raising the bar. Bucca is really cute inside, and that makes it worth a visit. However, it's expensive and the food isn't as good as Olive Garden.

I signed up for email promotions and they send me $10 coupons. I take my girls for dinner and we all enjoy it. I like family style eating, more than enough and we really like the food. Family atmosphere.

By no stretch of the imagination is this place good. I have been to the Buffalo Speedway location twice now; once a few years back and again this past weekend.
