From the time the hostess walked us through the kitchen on the way to our table until we walked out the door to a "see you next time", we had a wonderful experience! It is a "family style" meal experience so bring your appetite...and family or friends! We had the Chicken Marsala with Garlic mashed potatoes and it was really good. The desserts looked amazing but we were too full to try them.

We made reservations a couple of weeks ago for the table in the kitchen for my granddaughters 8th birthday! Comfortably sat 5 adults and one child in the round booth facing the kitchen. Watching the food prep, seeing all the amazing dishes coming out had us with lots of oohs and ahhhs! Everyone was so friendly, food was so yummy. And we took home plenty for great leftovers that didn't go wasted. Favorite dish was the stuffed chicken with prosciutto and pesto sauce! And we loved the fried cheese! They sang her the best birthday song while turning on and off the lights and banging dishes! She was super pumped! Her bday wish was dinner at a "fancy" restaurant and Buca definitely exceeded her expectations as well as ours!

Great Italian food - when they have it! Their lasagna is to die for; but the night we were there, incredibly they were out of this staple on the menu. Boo!!! ... But our party of five ordered another good dish which was also primo! ... Served family style and bread and salads are endless and wonderful! ... The ambiance is a bit gaudy; but fun; and you'll enjoy entering the table area by a quick tour though the kitchen where you can stop and watch the chef staff do their thing. A really fun place to take family or to entertain clients or guests. We always head to this when we are in Franklin. And we'll be back, for sure!!

We were disappointed. I now see why the restaurant resorts to coupons to bring people in. We found the prices to be on the high side. Their small portions serve 3 people so I think their object is to cater to groups otherwise, as single or couples, you end up bringing food home. Was the food terrific? We have to say that it is average. If it's your first time going here it's kind of fun what with all the kitschy wall decor and different dining rooms. The music is 60's. Lots of parking, good wait service.
