We went for Christmas dinner. Main dishes were delicious, especially the Brussels sprouts dish. However, the tomatoes in the caprese salad were not very ripe. I would go back.

We arrive early the waitress was very nice very attentive. The sangria was very delicious. We decided to do family style we got the buca trio platter it was ok. It was not yummy. Next we got the spicy chicken Rigatoni. The pasta was very plain no flavor the sauce was not yummy nothing to be exited about and the chicken looked to be frozen which I hate the taste of it. The place was entertaining looks like a museum.

I made a 6 pm reservation on Father's Day, for a party of 7. We arrived about 6:05, and was told the table was being prepared. We stood waiting to be seated for almost 30 minutes....wondered what was the point of making a reservation if we had to wait anyway. Many other dinners came in and were seated while we still waited, including another party that made reservations for 4-5 and stated they would be a party of 7, yet they were seated before us. I will admit the place was busy, but to wait 30 minutes for a seat when a reservation was made seemed a little long. Service was good, but even the food seemed to take a long time to be brought out. We ordered a salad and that came out in a timely manner, but at 7:36, after being seated at 6:30, we still hadn't received our entrees. We were offered and received complimentary desert for the long wait to be seated, but with 3 children, and a reservation for 6, seemed a bit late to get out of the restaurant at 8:45. The food was good, and the atmosphere allowed for talking and enjoying family, but the wait was less then desirable.

The restaurant is fun but could use an upgrading. Things looked old and dingy. The service was good. Love the family style eating.
