Outstanding Italian restaurant that was suggested by our hotel for our short convention stay. We enjoyed the Buca Trio Platter, Mussels Bianca (my favorite), Eggplant Parmigiana, and Chicken Marsala. All top-tier in flavor and amount. Will certainly revisit this restaurant to try the other dishes.

Everything is family style. So a slice of cake is for something like 3-5 people.
