The food was very tasty but they had no menu which made ordering weird. The server helper was very good, the waitress seemed inebriated and kinda funny. The food will make us go back and we will judge the service when we return. The plates are meant to be shared, the veal chop was excellent, they had a special this... More

Marco does take care of you... NO Menu.. No prices.. he gives you options of whats available today. His delivery and explanations are amusing-food served family style...keep your cutlery for every next dish... no table clothes- below average atmosphere and service. Although we enjoyed the food and non orthodox approach to ordering our food.. We did leave a little surprised... More

Great place! It's a small wonderful place. It is a slice of Italy and the food reminds me of all my travels in Italy.

Wow! What a break from the faux Italian restaurants in the Broward County. The owner is from Naples [Italy]. He is very personable and knows his food. We had a party of 16 mostly Sicilian and Italians. So, impressing us wasn't going to be easy. We did family style. First was meatballs, an unbelievable stuffed mozzarella [fresh spinach and tomatoes],... More

We recently had a fun family dinner at Cafe La Buca. Pizza is very good. We shared several dishes, branzino, lamb and linguine with clams. Brought our own wine and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Will definitely go back.

Its a limited menu and that's ok, be ready to only share, and that's ok also. Some of the food was very nicely done, and some was not. Overall it was not the best nor the worse I've had in Italian. Did not try the pizza. Had to return the lamb chops dinner as they were too tough, not overdone... More

This was our third visit as we hadn't been here in 2 years and were looking forward to a great meal. Unfortunately what we got was an ok meal, which was expensive for what we got and just being "ok". Last time we went there were menus but not this time. We were automatically given charred brussles sprouts (which were... More

Be warned! This is a low key family run pizza joint by day and goes upscale at dinner. The no menu no prices gimmick tends to up the end price to restaurants benefit in my opinion. Everything we've had has been very good to sublime. We love the pasta with clams which seems to always be available. Most dishes change... More

"This is a tiny authentic Naples-style italian restaurant with no menu but amazing food. You are asked what you'd like: pasta, meat, or fish. Then they tell you what they have available that night. Reservations are highly recommended. This packs up even in non season. (They close in September to return to visit family in Naples, Italy). Everything you eat there is wonderful! Helped along by the wood oven, homemade pastas, and family loving care to each dish".
