Just as they did last year (and the year before, for that matter), readers picked Buca as Milwaukee's most family-friendly restaurant. The chain Italian eatery features colorful decor, a lively atmosphere and "family style" meals that include kid favorites like pizza and spaghetti.

Because of the festive environment, dining with noisy kids is never a problem at Buca.

The Minneapolis-based chain now boasts 87 locations in the United States, opening its first restaurant in 1993. In 2008, Buca was acquired by Planet Hollywood, and Milwaukee remains its only Wisconsin restaurant.

Here, the popular restaurant dishes up Southern Italian cuisine. Highlights of the space include themed rooms where the walls are packed with photos and pictures, large drinks and portions, and a table for larger parties in the kitchen. Editors' choice: Organ Piper Pizza
