Diner Reviews
  • "First time going with friends who recommended Buca di Beppo. The experience was amazing from our waiter to the food. If you haven't been here you have to go. We will be back soon..."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "My only complaint was that we had reservations but were seated at the very back of the restaurant next to the emergency exit. I would think that if you took the time to make the reservation, to let the restaurant know you are coming, you would get rewarded for that. But that's just my opinion."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Fruite de mare was delicious. Bread was Cold. It took 50 minutes to get one order. Manager just said yes they had a new cook and it would get better soon. Margarita was refreshing."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Buca di Beppo is one of our favorite restaurants! The food and service are always excellent. It's the most consistent of any place we've ever been. You always know you're going to get the best. I love the concept of the family dining and you always get your money's worth and have leftovers for the next day. The decor is wonderful. We enjoy looking at all the pictures and feel we've experienced Italy at it's finest. Great job! We drive about fifty miles to eat there and have recommended it to all our friends."

    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We moved from the area and came back for a birthday. It has been years since we had dined in the Cool Springs area. We had to wait a little longer than usual for our meals... it was worth the wait."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We enjoy an occasional visit to Buca with our grandchildren. (3 and under). It is easy to find something everyone likes on the menu and for the kids lots of decor (pictures etc) to keep them occupied (well maybe at least briefly). Overall good experience."

  • "Overall was very good. Even gave special attention for the birthday boy. Only noticed I ordered house wine and was charged a higher price than what was shown on the menu."

  • "we were a party of 5...4 adults and a good but noisy 2 year old....our waiter was fabulous and so understanding ...and did everything he could to make our dining experience go smoothly even tho it was the usual Mothers Day Madhouse so the kitchen wasnt as quick as it usually is ...which we very much appreciated since we drove 4 hours to eat dinner with our son and his family. also I'd like to say that we appreciated being seated so quickly ...being able to make reservations for a restaurant in another state is FABULOUS! "

  • "I signed up for your club which offered a complimentary small dish of Pasta... The manager rejected my print out as evidence because it did not have a scanner code on it. We made the choice to visit you because of the on-line offer and it was rejected. Not smart or customer friendly. I spent ~ $140 on mothers day and was disappointed at the staff's judgement. Thanks for allowing me to provide you with feedback."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Serving sizes are more than adequate, wait staff very pleasant and experienced. Food is the standard fare you'd find in any typical "chain" store restaurant, not bad but nothing to rave about. Ambiance is nice but fixtures are old and in need of repair, booth seats are so worn there are huge divots/holes in them from where people have sat over the years and you sink right into them or are on a tilt trying to avoid it, I am a small person and was very uncomfortable the seats and tables were so close to each other. We ordered three different dishes and the sauce was nothing more than crushed tomatoes on each one, quite bland and flavorless."

  • "Took my mother there for her day and everyone was very pleased! "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The girls and I took the wife here to eat and it was great just like every time we come there to eat.And we also have to drive 2 hrs to get there to eat and its well worth the drive"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I, like about a thousand other people, thought it was a great idea to take my mother here for Mother's Day lunch. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation. We got checked in and they sat us about 15 minutes after our reserved time. Our server was friendly and helpful. We ordered WAY too much food, as always. Never mind though, because we can eat on it all week!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We love Buca for our Family outings! We always choose Buca to celebrate our special days with family. We have each family member choose one dish each and then we all pass our dishes around the table. I don't think there is any other restaurant that allows you to be you and celebrate a great time with family "Just Like Being At Home"! Thank You to everyone that cooked and served our food!!!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "For the quality of food and price, I prefer Maggiano's. With Maggiano's buy one and take one home, you at lease feel like you are getting something. After all, it is pasta."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Mother's Day was great at Buca di Beppo. Couldn't ask for better food and service. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Put us in room with a party that had about 6 unruly kids. Sat us under cold vent. Lost our food ticket. Took about an hour to get food and it was horrible."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Decent food, great service, fun environment. The restaurant has an odor to it that made me enjoy my dining experience a lot less. Smells musty and moldy. The bathroom especially stinks. This wasn't my first time here but each time I leave, I leave remembering that odor. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Service was good with exception of kitchen. Appetizer took over an hour to receive at table. Our party did not complain but our server did apologize and removed that charge from our bill. We have been to Buca several times and typically the food has been good. This time food was not prepared well and our party was was disappointed with the meal considering the price. May try again but there are many more dining options in the area."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "5pm Sat evening. 5 min wait for table. Food was good. Waitress was good, seemed a little overwhelmed. Items came out that we didn't order & entrees/sides didn't come out all at once. Ordered "spicy sausage" side and "sausage with peppers" is what came out (~10 min late). Bill included charge for entree that no one ordered. Waitress fixed charges without question. However, when the bill comes out wrong I expect to see a manager whether I request to see him or not. I assume the waitress had to see a manager to fix the bill anyways, so it seemed unprofessional to me that he did not come to the table & thank us for spending money at his restaraunt."

    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "We came for our daughter's birthday on Sunday 4/27. Food was good as always, but the waitress really could have cared less, honestly. Needed repeated reminders about things we'd asked for, did not ask if my husband wanted another drink, called everyone "sweetie" all the time in a somewhat condescending manner, etc. Was very clear her heart wasn't in it, she just wanted us out, even brought us the bill before dessert. Clearly a sign that we needed to move along. We have come here before and gotten excellent service. I think the A team works Thurs-Saturday. I don't think we even had the B team waitress - likely C team. "
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "Did not begin well. We had to wait longer than expected. When we questioned the seating, the waitress was not friendly nor was the manager; so to avoid a confrontation we accepted the seating provided and got a new waitress."

  • "I took my beautiful and amazing girlfriend there for Easter this year (2014). She had never been before, and she loves Italian food. The smile on her face from the atmosphere to the delicious food to the fact that they walk you through the kitchen to see where all the magic happens... priceless! Apparently, I did very well! :-) Buca di Beppo's in Cool Springs is definitely a place to take that special someone that you love with all of your heart and soul!"

  • "Pizza was really good as so was the chicken Parmesan. We ordered a Cesar salad that our whole table felt was not very good, in fact we barely even ate it. Service was great. We found it a bit pricy for 3 people to eat, would be better in large groups "

  • "Will you leave Buca hungry? No way! Will you be amazed by the deliciousness of the food? Absolutely! Will you be entertained by the decor of the restaurant? Definitely! I've eaten at Buca several times, and I've never left disappointed. The service is fast and friendly. All questions are welcomed and answered. The serving sizes are perfect for sharing. I love Buca, recommend it wholeheartedly, and will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Buca is probably my favorite restaurant. If you ever have the chance, request the "Kitchen Table" upon reservation. Typically the waiters will bring large dishes by to show off the chef's amazing work. If a dish is made wrong, your table will most likely end up receiving it for free! There's pretty much no way you'll go wrong with ordering off the menu. The food is amazing and the ambiance is stellar. Do yourself a favor...reserve the kitchen table and visit this place soon!"
