Diner Reviews
  • "first time visit with extended family. Food was good and overall experience was good--but we could have had a better explanation of how the family dining experience would work, since none of us had ever dined here before (proportions, salad-bread options etc). Also, we were sat at the table right next to the kitchen--so a lot of ice machine and soda dispensing noise."

    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "The food was not great. It was inconsistent throughout the serving dish. Dessert clearly came from a frozen package. You could make better at home. The best part of the dinner was the wine. The waitress never offered a second glass or water refills. The place was crazy noisy too."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The service was excellent. Felt very cramped where we were seated. Had the Chicken Cannelloni. Not much chicken lots of ricotta and mozzarella. Pretty bland. I thought the meal was very expensive. Could have a much better meal at half the cost at Olive Garden."

  • "From previous experience, the restaurant rocks, but this particular experience was rated lower only because of the waitress. She forgot our bread at which was served by the busboy, and when asked for cheese my meal was eatin before it arrived. I assumed she was still fairly new, so no worries, I will return because of the delicious foood. Thank you."

  • "We are a family of seven. Mom Dad and 5 kiddos ranging in age from 21 to 7. Dined Friday evening with four of them. Food was very good. Our youngest who is somewhat picky highly recommends the meatballs! We had a salad to share which was excellent and shared two entrees amongst us while two of our children enjoyed the spaghetti with meatball from the children's menu. All leftovers were boxed up and enjoyed at home."

  • "My two boys (age 20's) got the large portion of shells and ate them all. The sausage, cheese and spinach were ground up very fine. Shells fell apart once you cut into them, allowing all the filling to pour out. They said they were good though. The seafood pasta (clams, calamari), was good and came in a big bowl, but the sauce was very soupy. It fed four adults. The cheese bread was $7.99 and I couldn't see or taste the cheese. It came in a basket and didn't even look like a whole loaf of bread. Too expensive for what we received. We opted not to purchase the salad or a veggie. This would be better for a family with small children."

  • "Everything was wonderful. Our only suggestion - we had a party of 10 and they put two tables together and tried to put 6 people on one side with the booth seating. Most of our party was regular size adults and it would have been a tight squeeze. We did ask to add another table to our tables to allow for more comfortable seating. Our waitress immediately accommodated our request, however, we did over hear a couple of the other waitresses/bus boys saying that should not have happened - us adding an additional table. So that was a bit unprofessional. Otherwise - we love Bucca's!"

  • "This was my first visit to Buca and I LOVED IT!!! I can't wait to go back. The food was great, the waiter was awesome and the atmosphere was very interesting. My only complaint was the cake for the dessert was a bit dry, I just smothered it in ice cream and raspberry sauce, couldn't hardly tell then. We'll be back for sure!!"

  • "We had reservations for a valentines day lunch. We were left by the cash register for 5 to 7 mins as the gal there told us she would be right back and we assumed she was going to look for a table for us. We didn't understand this as there weren't many patrons in the restaurant at this time. She finally came back and seated us. After several mins our drink order was taken. When the cashier came back for our order we asked if the lasagna was ready ( it was 15 mins before noon) and she said yes.After 10 mins she came back and said it wouldn't be ready for 15 more mins so we changed our order. See private note to restaurant for the rest of the story"

  • "Just had a great family dinner; sort of a combination Valentine's Day and Family Night. Serving sizes were large; meant for sharing. Overall value is good. Food is very good. The soup of the day was bean soup and it was fantastic. The family shared a rigatoni dish and had leftovers to take home. The entire staff was very friendly. I loved the themed background music. It set the mood for a nice Italian dinner. A very pleasant experience."

  • "We had a group of 10 celebrating three birthdays, and the service was impeccable. By the end of the night we felt as though we were part of the staff's family. They laughed and joked with us and made us feel welcome. Family-style food sent all of us home with leftovers. Great experience for our large group."

  • "We were sat quickly, server was wonderful, food was good and hot. Dessert was delish. We were there for two birthdays so we really appreciated the prompt and fun service. The manager even came by to check on us. Funny fella."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "This is a very nice restaurant and the food is great. But, this restaurant is always cold in the winter. When told this, the restaurant indicated that it didn't control the heat, because the mall its in controls the heat. This is terrible and doesn't make sense. If the hostess has to have a coat on when its cold, what do you think the customers think when they walk in and the rooms adjacent to the two outside doors are ice cold and you have to keep your coats on. I won't be going back when its cold outside and if Buca can't get heat, then they better find another place to do business, because most people won't go there in winter months to be cold."

  • "Service was horrible. Waiter finally came around and brought along his bad attitude with him. When Jacob finally brought our drinks he vanished and never came back to get our order. Finally, we got the attention of another waiter and the manger Carlos took our order. No one knew where our waiter went. This dinner was to celebrate daughters birthday. When we made reservations our special instructions where to celebrate her birthday and would like for them to acknowledge her birthday. Nope never happened. Not only that but they sat us right next to the kitchen which was loud. We could hardly hear ourselves talk. Will never go there again"

  • "Everything about our first visit, was mediocre, at best. The pasta was bland, with very little sauce. The service was simply "ok". I was not impressed."
    Dined on 1/12/2014
  • "I went to the restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday. We had initially thought that we'd have 10 people in our party, but it ended up only being 4 people (counting us) that showed up for the group party. The restaurant was nice about the change in quantity of people in our party. We enjoyed the dinner and visiting with the folks that did end up showing up at the restaurant."

  • "We had 14 people for a work luncheon. Service was quick and the food was great. While it was a little on the pricey side, it was well worth it and we'll be returning."

  • "We went here as an end of the year Christmas party/Thank you for our MOPS planning team. We were seated in the little round room up front which was perfect for keeping much of the noise of the rest of the restaurant to a dull roar. Our server was friendly and helpful. We would eat here again, as a group!"

  • "Both my family and my in-laws were in town for the holidays and we were looking for a place that could hold us all for a group dinner. We were able to get a reservation at Buca di Beppo and the experience was wonderful. We were seated immediately and the service was very good. The food was excellent especially the caesar salad and the prosciutto stuffed chicken. My mother and I are ready to go back and have that again. I would definitely recommend Buca di Beppo."

  • "Let me start by saying that I have been to this location probably 20+ times. We had reservations yet parties that walked in and put their name in for the same amount of people got seated before us, not to mention were given better tables. When our appetizers arrived it was notably burnt. The waitress said their was nothing she could do, It looked fine to her. We received our appetizer prior to receiving on drinks. The main course wasn't bad, however while we were still eating the manager came and took out plates out of in front of us stating they ran out of plates and needed them. We ordered the huge brownie sundae. It had delicious ice cream as always, but very few brownie pieces and the few it did have were extremely hard."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "We were disappointed in the food. Several people in our group said they wouldn't be back. The chicken Alfredo was really bland and didn't have much chicken. Spaghetti and meat balls had very little meat. The ziti was the best but was a but dry. Garlic bread with cheese was good. Service was fair. She tried to remember everything but forgot most of it. Hopefully since you asked for a review you really are open to my comments."

  • "although we are a smaller group for a national company we love to break bread together especially at Christmas time! We chose Buca's this year and will probably do it again next year!!! Great service! Outstanding food! Our waiter although only 2 days on the job must have had excellent training he was really excited and that made all of us excited to be there and made for an amazing experience :)"

  • "Great food with excellent service! We never had an empty drink, and anytime a plate was empty, it was taken right away. I love the family style dining, with family size portions of food. It is a great place to take a large group of people! Though, I do recommend that you make reservations, as the tables tend to fill up quickly."

  • "The food was very good. This is the third year my family has eaten Thanksgiving at a Bucca's,twice in Rookwood and this time at Florence. A portion of the green beens were way undercooked. Almost raw The rest of the meal was excellent. We will be back."

  • "We dine out for Thanksgiving often. This year we took 14 members of our family to Buca d'B mid afternoon and we all had a great time! Our rockstar server - that's right one server- did an awesome job accomidating everyone; and I believe she had 2 other 4-tops at the same time. We chose a large and small salad, the T-gving special for 6 and order 5 smaller entrees off the regular menu. Everyone had their fill and we even took home a few leftovers. At the end, there was no sticker shock when the tab for 14 came the total with tax was <$300!! a real value. Buca d' Beppo is well worth your serious consideration for a large special event, or holiday dinner when you want to focus on the food and relationships - instead of the work."
