    Found Buca online and had to check it out. We're looking for great family style restaurant for our rehearsal dinner. WE FOUND IT!! Our server Alfonzo and his trainee gave us the best service we have ever had! They didn't ever ask us about our meal while we had food in our mouths, a huge pet peeve of mine, and made sure that we had all the information we needed for our rehearsal dinner. Alfonzo even gave us a tour of the banquet room after our meal. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone, but make sure your hungry when you go! You are going to be taking home a lot of food otherwise! :-)

    Prices way too high! Bread cold, not homemade. Mushrooms cold! Calamari flat, stringy and cold. Each person gets a paper napkin?? That's not fine dining! Store bought Parmesan cheese for pasta. Had chicken stuffed with prosciutto. Had a hard time finding the prosciutto! $70 for what? Could go to Carrabbas 3X and have the same service but great food!! Very disappointed.

  • Awful birthday at Buca di beppo
    DisappointedinBuca
    Dined on 6/13/2014
    I have been going to Buca for over 11 years in Mesa, Az. I recently went to the Ft. Myers location for my birthday. I had 10 people join me for the celebration. It was the first and only disappointment I have ever had with Buca di Beppo. I will never go back. The service was terrible as the server did not know the menu. The manager was aggressive, confrontational and would not listen or assist anyone at my table. The food was awful. No flavor in the fettuccine. Out of the 10 people I invited, only two has had experience with Buca. I talked so highly of the place and was so very disappointed. Everyone was disappointed. Not the way I wanted to spend my birthday with friends and family.

    Dined on 5/11/2014
    I like the family-style service and the (almost) private dining rooms and the old-world decor. We were introduced to Buca di Beppo by our daughter in Columbus, Ohio many years ago, and have been coming back frequently. Great food, and the price is right. We always take some home. It is an especially good restaurant to go to when the grandchildren are with us! The food, ambiance and service make Buca di Beppo a winning combination.

    Although Fort Myers, Florida is a new location for Buca, the staff compensated for their inexperience with courtesy and attentiveness. We were there to celebrate our daughter's college graduation. Her high school graduation lunch was held at the Buca in Albuquerque, NM, so it was a nice way to bring back fond memories and create some new ones. We have also eaten at the Naples, FL restaurant, which presented a more experienced staff and an even better dining event. However, the real star of the night was the food and the warmth that the family style dishes permit. We will definitely return.

    We celebrated Mothers Day early this past Thursday night at Buca di Beppo in Fort Myers. This was our first visit to this location and we were pleasantly surprised. We love the food, the service was wonderful and we were especially grateful that they honored our reservation request and sat us in the Pope Room. We had the entire area to ourselves. We highly recommend this restaurant.

    Andrea, our waitress was a 10!!! She met every need usually before we could ask! Steven, the manager, was so attentive to all the guests it was amazing! He made the rounds making sure everyone was enjoying their meal. We saw him bring a candlelabra to a table for a special occasion. We asked if we could have it at our table just for our dessert. Sure enough when our dessert came so did Steven with the candlelabra!!! The food was a 10 service was unmatchable!!!!

    Food was very good but you need to know your way around their menu. We thought we were having a simple Italian dinner, but for the price we could/should have done fine dining. Small portions are generous and to be shared for two ... everything is al carte $o that added to the price creep. I cannot say how many times throughout the night we heard "its a lot, but you can take the rest home for another meal"!! We did take some home and it was just as good, if not better, the next night and I never say that about left overs. Food, wine, bread were wonderful. I would go back again for just the veal alone! Everyone from the door to the waiter could not have been nicer without being intrusive.
