Lovely authentic (American) Italian food. Generous portions. Most mains, at around $20 are made to share between at least 2. Kid friendly and fairly prompt service from the kitchen. The decor will help you pass the time while waiting. Decent (simple) wine selection. Limited beer options but adequate. Spaghetti and meatballs best I've had !

What kind of restaurant only allows you to order meals for 2 people. What if I don't want to take food home?! This was a lunch meeting...ordered nothing but water. Sat thru the meeting and left

Maybe I got spoiled living close to Little Italy for several years, but this restaurant will turn you off to liking anything Italian. The only thing that tasted decent was bread. Their fresh green salad was a mushy mix of iceberg lettuce and Italian dressing. Seriously, it tasted like they used one head of lettuce and one bottle of vinegar... More

Stopped by this family-style gem after a long day of driving. Our lasagna was mammoth and Delish. Plenty to share. Also had wonderful fresh green salad and took an order of spaghetti and meatballs home. Fun Italian decor and decent service. Will definitely return.

We went here on a Saturday just as they opened. We have been to the original in Minneapolis and other Buca's including Bethlehem, PA. This one ranks right up there in quality and service. The staff all greeted us and had us walk through the kitchen where the chefs greeted us as well. The food of course is great! It... More

Amazingly good food and reasonable prices. We stopped in for a birthday dinner, but quickly discovered the wait was 90 minutes. Do yourself a favor - call in and make a reservation; thankfully our hotel was just up the road and we just came back when it was our turn. Their tiramisu is to die for!!!

This is a difficult place to go as a couple. Due to the family style way of ordering, you are basically forced to order and share the same entree. Basic pasta bowls start around $20 and a salad is $15. Really both are very expensive for what you are actually getting. Food, while nothing special, was OK and we had... More

Went to eat for Valentine's Day special which was advertised on website and on print collateral. When we sat down, we ask about the special. The waitress looked at us as if we were crazy and said I don't know anything about it. I ask her if she could find out and let us know. This seemed to annoy her... More

I'll start with the positives: festive atmosphere, great for large families/parties (especially with kids) and pretty good service. If you enjoy left-overs so you don't have to cook, you DO get a whole lot of food. However, the food itself was average if I'm being generous. I had the chicken marsala; the chicken itself was dry, and the wine sauce... More
