We live in NPB and our friends live in Miami. We meet at Cafe La Buca for a great time overall (food, atmosphere, people). We have had most of their dishes and they have all been outstanding. Even their pizza is special. Be sure to anticipate a loud fun environment. This is no place for a quiet romantic date. We... More

Took some new people to Cafe La Buca and they totally enjoyed it - it's a great place for regulars and out of town guests. For us, this place never disappoints. Although there are an abundance of Italian restaurants in Fort Lauderdale, this one offers a very different experience. It's like being in a home. We absolutely love Simonay. She... More

My wife and I came to Pompano beach for the week. We found Cafe La Buca on the Internet, and directions from Google maps, not hard to find. It's very quaint, seating a total of 45 people. The staff could tell right away that we were newbies. They were great. There is no menu. You can order pizza anytime, otherwise... More

Everything served to us was delectable, with the branzino being the standout. As a recap…the 3 of us had some kind of an eggplant appetizer ($14) which my friends said was quite good (I don’t eat eggplant), another wonderful appetizer consisting of lightly cooked zucchini wrapped around a cheese-ball made of 4 cheeses and then baked ($18). For dinner, we... More

The food was very tasty but they had no menu which made ordering weird. The server helper was very good, the waitress seemed inebriated and kinda funny. The food will make us go back and we will judge the service when we return. The plates are meant to be shared, the veal chop was excellent, they had a special this... More

Marco does take care of you... NO Menu.. No prices.. he gives you options of whats available today. His delivery and explanations are amusing-food served family style...keep your cutlery for every next dish... no table clothes- below average atmosphere and service. Although we enjoyed the food and non orthodox approach to ordering our food.. We did leave a little surprised... More

Great place! It's a small wonderful place. It is a slice of Italy and the food reminds me of all my travels in Italy.

"This is a tiny authentic Naples-style italian restaurant with no menu but amazing food. You are asked what you'd like: pasta, meat, or fish. Then they tell you what they have available that night. Reservations are highly recommended. This packs up even in non season. (They close in September to return to visit family in Naples, Italy). Everything you eat there is wonderful! Helped along by the wood oven, homemade pastas, and family loving care to each dish".
