If you absolutely love Italian food, you will not be disappointed! The 'small' portions (at not small at all) and are enough for two healthy eaters; there is no lacking of flavor. You'll never have to reach for the salt & pepper, these dishes are seasoned to perfection! I've been to Buca di Beppos in Valencia, CA and there was my first Buca experience! They set the bar high and Buca Times Square aced it! Now I can 'buca' to the East AND 'buca' to the West!!! The staff is awesome & friendly; "Aidan rocks!" We met the manager and one of the chefs (who's names escape me, but 'you know who you are'! Excellent job, guys--you represent Buca first class! The Shrimp Fra Diavolo is delicious and its ACTUALLY spicy! The Brownie Sundae is colossal--don't try to eat it alone but YUMMY!! So all you calorie counters & salad stiffs--step aside unless you really want to eat! Buca is officially inducted into my "Flavor Hall of Fame"!!
