We booked our large group gathering with parents and teens from a sports tournament in advance, we even choose our food with an all inclusive menu. When we arrived it took 40 minutes just to take a drink order, then a total of two hours with no bread, small bowls of salad and when the food arrived it was absolutely... More

Hey, Italy: Welcome to America! Quality does not matter, nor does service. Just heap on the starch, sauce and cheese. The bigger the hog trough platter it is served on, the better.

You will have a challenge if you are dining here as a single person. I was traveling for business and this was one of the better options near my hotel. I had never been and will probably not be back unless I'm either not staying in a hotel for one night (not looking to have leftovers for breakfast) or go... More

We have been there several times and will go back many more. Italian food family style. If you go and have never been, tell them and they will take you on a tour of the restaurant. Even through the kitchen!!! And by all means, make a reservation like I did for my wife's birthday. And also sit at the Popes... More

Walked in for dinner at 5:00 pm only to find that we were the only customers! Service was slow. Food was average, but every pricey! Now we know why the peace was empty.

I became a fan of Buca in Honolulu, HI. You get a lot of food for the money. When we moved here, we were excited to see a Buca. The prices were exactly the same. That is good news for Hawaii folks, but not for Michigan folks, I can see why the other reviews say it is expensive. But you... More

We like going to Buca, as the food is traditionally good and portions are plentiful. Just go expecting to be packed in tightly, which takes away from a quiet couples dinner atmosphere. Service is typically on the slow side, but they are very friendly.
