Buca di Beppo - Augusta
Top FavoriteThis was only my second time to Buca, it's now on my list of top favorite places to dine. Great food, wonderful staff! I just love the family style of dining, it's perfect for our groups way of dining. We always share our meals with each other anyway!!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOrdered spaghetti and meatballs,Ordered spaghetti and meatballs, apple gorgonzola salad, linguine with seafood, and chocolate brownie dessert.
Salad was good, a bit heavy on cinnamon for the first few bites, but otherwise a nice balance of flavors. Very fresh. Spaghetti and meatballs were cooked well... red sauce was weak. The linguine was fantastic. All seafood bits (calamari, mussels, clams, shrimp) were cooked perfectly, and the sauce (spicy but not overwhelming) was delicious. Linguine had the perfect "bite" to it. Served nice and hot. The dessert was just sort of "too much in a bowl" and not particularly outstanding. Would have loved to see spumoni on the menu.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA Fun Occasion!We sat at the indoor patio which was open to the Mall. This helped with the noise from our lively and talkative group of 8 because the noise wasn't confined to a small room. The service was friendly, Ebony was very accommodating to our multiple requests, and the food, although not as hot as I unreasonably prefer (I like my food straight out of the oven which isn't going to happen in a busy restaurant) was delicious, in large amounts, and lots of fun to share with our friends. It was a great experience, even the other servers and managers were friendly and offered a tour of the restaurant, just for fun! I would highly recommend Buca di Beppo to anyone!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent special occasion lunch!Had a great lunch with family after my daughter's graduation. We were placed in the "Pope Room", which was certainly unique, but also convenient with the lazy-Susan in the center of the round table. Our waiter, Wayne, was very personable and we had excellent service. Also, the manager, Chris, stopped by spontaneously to give his congratulations for the Graduation; I had mentioned it on Open Table when the reservation was made, so I assume that's how he knew, but it was nice to see that they pay attention to these details.
Excellent food each time we've been there, and this was no exception. Have recommended to friends and am looking forward to our next visit.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect CelebrationWe wanted to honor my graduating senior's request to eat at Buca, so I booked a table for 10. Later, I called back and requested a private dining room. The Mngr put us in the Sinatra room. My family had a blast in there. The pictures on the walls are of Sinatra and the stars of his era. Very interesting. The service was attentive yet casual, allowing us to really enjoy the evening. The food was perfect. We had Fried Calamri, Green Salad, Spag w Meat Sauce, Baked Stuffed Shells, and Penne San Remo.We all shared 2 bottles of excellent Cab, Louis Martini. It came to about $30 per head incl tax and tip. They let us bring our own cake in and made that part really special for our daughter by singing and bringing her a candelabra and personal card5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThat's Italian~!Great food, attentive staff, and appealing atmosphere make this dining experience one that we hope and plan to repeat as often as possible~!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayDefinitely glad we made reservations - my co-worker waited almost 2 hours for table! Our waiter was very nice and as effcient as he could be on a busy evening. The spinach artichoke cheese dip was delicious although the artichoke could have been cut into smaller pieces. The macoroni rosa and quattro al fourno were very good. The frutti del mare was good although the baby squid were a turnoff to some in our party. No one left hungry!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day DinnerMy sons took me out to dinner at Buca Di Beppo on Mother's Day. Our waiter was excellent, and the food was delicious. The ambience was great--not too noisy and not too quiet. I look forward to going to Buca again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLots of fun & food!Went on Mothers Day. had a reservation.Wine was wonderful.

We were very happy with him and our food.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNice find far from Masters gridlockA Buca di Beppo location near our home always has a full parking lot. So being in town for the Masters, we were a little surprised at first seeing a nearly empty restaurant upon arrival, and we almost left. But once we dove into the family style platters of food, we were pleased. The two soup choices were well-liked by out party (I actually crave another bowl of the wedding soup). We chose two platters for 4 people: SM chicken parmesan & LG baked rigatoni with meat, sausage, ricotta and mozzarella (think deconstructed lasagna). The massive bowls and platter were licked clean! Paying to ordering a side of pasta with our chicken parm was a little off-putting at first. But once we got the "hang" of family-style ordering, we're glad we stayed!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing and theThe food was amazing and the setup entertained. a bit on the expensive side but totally worth it.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service.

Excellent place for lunch or dinner.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only complaint I haveThe only complaint I have is how long it took for someone to greet our table. We waited for about 15 minutes, then one of the hosts came and told us our server was "backed up." By the time she brought back drinks or server had greeted us and taken our order. From then on everything was wonderful! The server was very friendly. The food arrived fast and was delicious.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Easter Dinner with myBest Easter Dinner with my daughter in many years.
