You could spend as much time looking at the decor as eating. Interesting nooks and crannies. Loved the kitchen tour and the fact that there is a table available right in the heart of the kitchen. Staff very helpful and enthusiastic. Make sure you go there hungry.

Great spot for a New Year's Eve dinner. Excellent to share a meal with all your family. Started with a nice antipasto salad. Then had stuffed chicken breasts (excellent) and a big bowl of penne ala vodka. Yummy. Had no room for dessert. But what we saw at other tables looked good. This is a good place. And better than an Olive Garden where everything tastes bland. Here at least we had the spice and the fun.

Delicious flavors, home-cooked meals, fast service. Although menu is traditional Italian cuisine, the flavors were amazing, and the desserts worth making it a little space for. Service was also great, special attention to detail and consideration for the kids we had with us. And the decor of the restaurant took you to Italy, for a dinner among family and friends.

We will be eating there many times to come.

This restaurant was one of our favorites but it has really taken a turn for the worse. The staff was horrible and we heard stuff that we never thought we’d here from servers. Severs were waiting on tables that were not even in their section which delayed our food. It is sad because we have always celebrated special occasions here.

This place has gone downhill since our last visit. The Caesar salad was horrible, wilted lettuce drowning in tasteless dressing covered up by absurd amounts of cheese to try to give it flavor. We have the Alfredo sauce on our pasta that was tasteless. We had to add the salt, pepper and cheese to give it some kind of flavor. The chicken stuffed with prosciutto , smelled and tasted rancid. My son and I were sick that evening...
No wonder this place only had one other table in it..
Will not be returning period... this place will not get my business ever again

We used to enjoy the Buca in Tampa, and since that's closed, we try to eat here when we visit Orando. Although it's just the two of us, the family-style meals give us leftovers for the next day, and the food is always great. Hubby loves the stuffed shells, and I love the chicken saltimbocca. Don't expect anything really creative, just good, traditional Italian fare. That's what we enjoy here, and then we walk off the meal touring around the mall.

We had gone before with a much larger crowd. This time we were disappointed. First we had ordered an Appetizier which the waiter never put in. Second we ordered the large spaghetti and got the small which was cold. It was my father in law’s birthday and we let him down

We are for Father’s Day. The food was great but our server was not very good. He couldn’t handle however many tables he had, it took a long time for him to come back every time. We told him my fiancé couldn’t handle anything spicy, we chose the Quattro El Forno and he never said anything was spicy in it. Well my fiancé has been sick in the bathroom since we arrived home and had to call out of work today. We will return but I will not ever sit in his section again.

Food was good hostesses friendly. Server was okay however multiple times rolled eyes at food requests. Cancelled one specific food order same issue, never refilled drinks stopped by three time once for the order once for the check and once to collect the check we were underwhelmed but think this is a specific server issue and were determined not to let it mess with our day, perhaps her day wasn’t that great who knows . We will most likely attempt another location next time or request Better service. Was still a great Father’s Day and the brand is still marvelous in our eyes. Just his specific experience expulsion have been improved

We normally do pickup and its has always been perfect. Tonight however we decided to experience eating in. Victor took great care of us in the bar. He made us some amazing cocktails, I personally loved my sparkling sangria. All of our drinks were excellent. While we did not get a bottle of wine, we did notice that $25.00 for wine was an amazing price and we will be back to take you all up on that great deal. The portions are huge and for our party we were impressed that we were full and had a ton of food to take home! We each had lunch for the next day, incredible value. Bathrooms were clean, Music is fun and I just have to say that we were so impressed by it all. The location is so easy to get to and it is great to know that if you eat in or take out it is excellent each way.
