Went for a quiet anniversary dinner but was very dissapointed. The sauce was very under cooked and had way too much sugar (not that sugar is ever a good thing in sauce). I call it lazy cooking. The appetizers were pedestrian at best and the...More

This is a wonderful little place in Pompano Beach. It is truly more than a place for pizza, the chef/owner has made this a warm and friendly atmosphere with no formal menu. They will make pretty much whatever you like and they have some specials...More

Cafe La Buca has no complaint in terms of quality, great pasta, very tasty, very italian and kind of homemade atmosphere. Then, it comes the prices, they are crazy, even compared with the quality. First thing, they don't offer a menu to see prices...is that...More

Read the reviews on this place. Yes there are no prices and yes it is sort of in a dumpy strip center in Pompano Beach. But then one of the best steak houses in all of Las Vegas is in the dumpiest hotels in the...More

We came here though a recommendation. When we got there, for dinner, it was so bright in there we almost didn't go in. When we sat down the owner came by and (there is no menu) recommended a couple of appetizers which were both tasty...More

This came as a recommendation. Make sure you make reservations. Lots of locals. No menu. Waiter just tells you what they have but no prices are given. Brought our own wine and no corkage fee was charged. We did buy one glass of white for...More

Good service, good food, casual atmosphere. Portions were perfect and good variety. It was not your everyday Italian restaurant. Great neighborhood find.

Thank you for your inquiries and comments. Although prices are not published they are consistent. Prices are per person not per dish. So if you came alone you would have a smaller portion charged for 1. If you order a... 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".
