We live in NPB and our friends live in Miami. We meet at Cafe La Buca for a great time overall (food, atmosphere, people). We have had most of their dishes and they have all been outstanding. Even their pizza is special. Be sure to...More

Took some new people to Cafe La Buca and they totally enjoyed it - it's a great place for regulars and out of town guests. For us, this place never disappoints. Although there are an abundance of Italian restaurants in Fort Lauderdale, this one offers...More

My wife and I came to Pompano beach for the week. We found Cafe La Buca on the Internet, and directions from Google maps, not hard to find. It's very quaint, seating a total of 45 people. The staff could tell right away that we...More

Everything served to us was delectable, with the branzino being the standout. As a recap…the 3 of us had some kind of an eggplant appetizer ($14) which my friends said was quite good (I don’t eat eggplant), another wonderful appetizer consisting of lightly cooked zucchini...More

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...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....More

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".
