In order to get to our table, we had to walk through the kitchen to get there. Unbelievably unsanitary, and in a pandemic no less. The restaurant is cavernous and quite choppy with the room set ups. Waiter was attentive since we were the only group in the entire room. Food is served "family style" in either a small (serves 3) or a large (serves 4-5). Prices are ridiculously expensive. Ordered the caprese salad, it was ok. Penne with chicken, sun dried tomatoes, and artichokes was so over salted and garlicky, my water retention is overboard. Cheese manicotti was a bit bland, and the lemon chicken was just ok. Nothing particularly special about this place. Overpriced Olive Garden without the never ending salad and bread sticks.

Our server, Leo, was very attentive and helped us navigate through the ordering process to ensure we had just the right amount of food for our guests. The service was not quick, but by all means we were not there for a quick meal either. The preparation and timing of the food was all great. We were able to enjoy our time, food, drinks, and even dessert in a calm and unrushed manner. Thank you Open Table, Buca & Leo for helping make my son's birthday a fun and delicious celebration!

But their prices have gone considerably up and it’s expensive for 4 people. Not a good value for the money unless you have a large crowd.

For instance, most entrees are available in two sizes - small, which serves three individuals, or a large, which serves six individuals. This menu structure forces a party of two to purchase more food than needed. In addition, some entrees do not come with sides. The Chicken Lemon, which is a chicken breast and cost $35.00, does come with anything. Adding a side of fettuccini cost an additional $21.00. Simply overpriced for what you get.

The two of us came there for lunch. Right away, it became obvious that this restaurant is more suitable for large parties, as each serving is intended for 3-4 people. This is not the fault of the restaurant, but something to be kept in mind. The salad we ordered arrived with dressing mixed in (not on the side, as we requested) and the pizza was rather oversalted.

The food was great, especially the Chicken Marsala, and even the "small" portion was big. I think the prices have escalated quite a bit since we have been there last. For 3 people, we had Apple Salad, mozzarella garlic bread, Chicken Marsala, Ziti, 2 meatballs, 2 glasses sangria and 1 glass wine and with tip it was $200! I think that is a bit much for lunch, even on Mother's Day. Other than that, the service was great and we had a nice time.
