Diner Reviews
  • "We were a group of 16 (9 adults and 6 kids). The food arrived promptly, hot and as always delicious. Our waiter was very knowledgeable, efficient and polite. A Most enjoyable dinner experience indeed."

  • "Actually every time I have been there I have loved it. The food was excellent and plenty of it. We really liked the Tiramisu. The one extra special surprise was our wonderful server. Melanie was about as close to perfect as a server could get. It took us a day to work it off and then we started to think about when we will come back. Thanks"

  • "The waitstaff seemed inexperienced and had a non interest in the Guest experience...there was confusion with the billing and waiter was getting frustrated when I asked for an explaination of the charges. Then had a bad attitude when presented with a discount coupon. What started out as a good experience turned into a negative one that was over $200.00....Great food service less than desireable."

  • "Since we were first time guests we got to tour the kitchen and the restraurant. It is family style dining. We shared a small caesar (for 4 of us) and there was plenty. We then shared spagetti and meatballs and fettuccine with chicken and broccoli. Both were awesome and we even took some home. Great atmoshere and food with a lot to look at."

  • "My wife & I dread going out to eat on Mother's Day. The restaurants are usually crowded, prices are high and service can suffer. Well, let me tell you, our family had a ball this Mother's Day at Buca. They were geared up for the crowd. Because we had reservations, they seated us right away. We had the most pleasant and efficient waiter. He sported a beard (he had to get special permission from the owner for it) because his other job was in wrestling. Can't say enough about his service and the food was fantastic. As usual, we over ordered (thankfully) because I have been dining on the left overs. We asked for extra red sauce and he generously brought us more. The prices were the same as everyday and they even let us use a coupon."

  • "We had lunch at Buca Di Beppo, 10 of us and food service was outstanding and reservation process thru Open Table worked great! The restaurant called on Sunday morning to make sure we would still be there so that was great as well!!"

  • "We had a good time, service was great, but the food was cool, we didn't say anything to the server about this...We drove 35 min. to the place... not really worth the drive, parking was hard to fine because it is in a large mall.... We had eaten at their places in Jersey and Philly and had great experiences...other then the food being cool it was a nice time"

  • "Although we visit the Buca at the Florida Mall regularly, it is a must when we have family in town. The food is excellent and the service amazing! It is such a great opportunity to share and try new things as the meals are served family style and enough for everyone. Each time we visit Buca we usually get our 'hearts desires.""

  • "We have eaten here several times over the years and we have never left disappointed! Food is beyond delicious, and I love the great old pictures that hang on the walls throughout the restaurant. It's a family style restaurant and the plates are plentiful. I would highly recommend this restaurant and I guarantee you will enjoy it!"

  • "I've never had anything but good experiences at any Buca di Beppo I've visited (Chicago, Louisville and Orlando), but this was the best visit yet. We were seated quickly. Our server, Kelly, was quick, polite and helpful. Our food was served faster than we expected, and was prepared perfectly...even the special request we made on one of the dishes. We were entertaining out of town guests who had never tried Buca before, but they say they're going to become regulars now."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "The food was outstanding, but the server was sub-par. He made many mistakes on the order and took quite a while to serve us. We reserved the table inside the kitchen and thought it would be a great experience. We ended up having to wait a while to view a server, got drink/food order wrong. We ended up getting free things because of the mistakes, which were appreciated. It would have been much easier and better if we weren't sitting in the kitchen, unfortunately."

  • "The restaurant is very well located in the mall. It's good for families because the plates are huge! We were in a party of 3 and we have 1 appetizer and 1 entree. The food was good but too spicy! So for those who don't like it hot svoid the calamari."

  • "A lot of fun for the whole family. Food was good especially the meat dishes and service was quick. Didn't like the way they treated reservations. It's first come first served even with a reservation."

  • "we had the 4 for 40 selection, and were suppose to get the large size portions, in which we did not...we were given the small garlic bread, salad, and main course....seeing that the main course didnt even feed 3 of us, I did ask the waiter if it was the large....he looked at the platter and said no it was the small.... and apologizes for the small portions....he did, have the additional entree encreased, but that was it....the food itself was bland,the garlic bread just tasted like stale toasted bread....the ceasr salad seems to just have oil and vinegar dressing on it, not impressed, the meat sauce....the sauce was bland, meat was unseasoned, and the sauce was waterythe desserst was awful . the tiramisu, was heavy, and bland,"

  • "We have been to this restaurant many times - and to be honest it has gotten worse every trip. Today was out last visit. Service was HORRIBLE!! Food was too spicy even though we had asked for it NOT to be made spicy. Never got seconds on bread. (had 6 small pieces for the entire table) had to ask for water 4 times - 3 people - to finally get a refill with our check. SERVICE WAS TERRIBLE. FOOD WAS OK! Not sure what is going on with this restaurant.....actually asked who we thought was the manager - man in tie seating people for water and still did NOT get any. Sad - this use to be one of our favorite places to go. NOT one person came by our table to ask how anything was."

  • "Our server, Adam, was great! He joked along with the adults and kids at our table, was very attentive, and made eye contact each time he was addressed or in turn addressed someone at our table. He even aided us in embarassing our friend who had just returned home from a long business trip by having staff join in and sing "Happy Birthday" to him. Our meal was delicious. The establishment was clean, neat, and organized. The hostess gave us the kitchen tour and everyone in the kitchen greated us as we passed through. During our meal, the on duty manager checked in on our table. Even he joined in with our lively bunch who likes to joke around and have fun. Keep up the good work!"

  • "We enjoyed the "4 for $40" deal greatly, then we ordered the big brownie sundae in the giant martini glass for our birthday girl - a group of servers brought a CANDELABRA and sang the special Buca birthday song - best birthday recognition ever! The noise level was due to our rowdy celebrating party, but the other diners in our area didn't seem to mind...at least I hope they didn't!"

  • "Spring break week at Disney, no dinner reservations= leave the park! We love the food and family style of Buca. The prices are a little high, especially when you order the small portion of the meats with the expectation it feed 2 or more with leftovers - it has 3 small pieces of veal - delicious, but misleading . The small portions of the pastas will however feed 3 or 4 easily. The place is fun with lots of crazy decor to look at and the desserts are around 15 dollars and are presented with serving spoons for you to eat with!!! I recommend only ordering a dessert if you plan on sharing since it is huge! Overall, a fun , decent chain"

  • "My family has been to the Chicago restaurants many times and have enjoyed the food. Can't say so with this location. The salad had way too much dressing on it- we couldn't even finish it. The ravioli with meat sauce didn't taste good at all. The ravioli was overcooked."

  • "We came to Buca di Beppo for a surprise birthday party. The staff was extraordinary helping us set up for the birthday and bringing the cake after the dinner with a birthday song. Our waiter was super friendly and attentive. We will definitely come back for another family dinner."

  • "They give you so much food it's crazy. Fortunately, we took the advice of previous online reviews. We were 6 people. We each ordered a SMALL entrée which was plenty to feed us all. We ordered a large salad for the six of us and had to takes some home (it was THAT GOOD). When they call a dessert "COLOSSAL" it is because it is as big as your head! The only reasons they didnt get 5 stars is because the wine was served with sediment and the coffee was served with grains and for some odd reason, the stuffed shells seemed spicy. Otherwise everything was great. I felt like I had been transported through time to my old neighborhood in Brooklyn!"
