TOTALLY overated!!!, 9/10/2008

After our first bad experience... we thought we'd give it one more try... since it's was so highly regarded. Lost again. The service was mediocre at best. We were practically ignored. The food... was ok. It was pretty good even, but for the price I expected way more. I expected way better service too. Oh well... they lost our business!

Feels Like Family, 11/14/2007

You are instantly welcomed into this family owned restaurant and although it is fancy, you feel very comfortable. The dining experience is a long one but well worth it. Every course was better then... the next and the wine list was extensive. This is a great value for the quality of food and service and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Great Food!

They have great food, but the prices have gone up and the portions have gone down. Not the worst thing, but a noticable difference. It won't stop me from eating here though :)

Not The Best

I had the Lobster Ravioli for $25 and it didnt even fill me up very skimmpy on the food. I could only taste the lobster about two bites out of the whole plate. Are son got a small $15 bowl of spagatti witch he said he liked. The free garlic bread that comes to the table... the first batch was burnt.

The Best Italian Food in Town!!!!

I've been going to Busallacchis for the last 20 years and I've never been disappointed. The service is great and the food is wonderful. My favorite dish, that is not on their menu, is the Frutti di Mari (linguini with seafood). It's pricey but worth every penny. Delizioso!!!

cute atmosphere

although disappointed by the lasagna (too mild, not enough meat) the ambiance of this small restaurant made the meal enjoyable. the martini's are pricey and simple, but the service was excellent!

LOVE IT!

Busalacchis is a great upscale restaurant. A lovely place to go for a dinner for two. It's beautifully decorated inside. The amosphere is so very relaxing and comfortable. The food is superb, absolutely delicious. Service is fast, the staff is very nice and friendly. The prices are affordable, pretty reasonable.
