All entrees are served family style so you choose between a "feeds 2 person" (=1 Big mans single portion) or "feeds 4 or 5" (=2 big men's sharing portions). So me (a big man), my hungry wife and the famished wee one split a couple of normal size appetizers (caprizi & calimari) and a couple of 2 person entrees, and... More

We went here to celebrate my sisters birthday while my whole family was in town. It was a great place to go with a large group of people. We all were able to share multiple dishes since the portions are huge!

Do you have family comí g to your house and don't feel like cooking? Let Buca do it. Awesome menu - salads are off the charts. And lemon chicken is a must have. Meatballs are the size of baseballs. Really really good food and reasonable price. Always friendly too. Will go again and again.

Reserved the Pope Room for a birthday celebration with family (a dozen or so of us). Staff did a great job helping me plan and organize the event in advance and making sure it all ran smoothly on the big day. The food was superb and we loved it all. One thing was better than the next. Baked Rigatoni (Spicy... More

If taking a group here I would highly recommend reserving the Pope room seen below. Beforehand for a large group I recommend contacting their Sales Manager and choosing a pre planned menu. It not only is affordable but keeps time at a minimum so all can enjoy and still get home at a reasonable hour. And great food and service... More

Our family reserved the party room - complete with pictures of Popes - for 11 people. I wouldn't recommend more than 12 in the Pope room or there will not be enough elbow room. Food was preordered and brought out by course - appetizer, salads, entrees and dessert. The large lazy Susan in the center meant food could quickly be... More

We visited here after going to the Louisville flea market. We had visited here during the holidays & loved it. This place has large portions so we shared the chicken Alfredo. My husband wanted to add chicken so there was a $4. Up-charge for doing that & boy were they cheap scrapes on that. There was not hardly any chicken... More

Great family style Italian food. Great for birthdays. If you go during the summer, they give you a free birthday cake and sing. Be sure to set your reservations online and keep the coupon code. Love, love, love the place.
