- Always a fav!JustinDined on 9/6/2014This was a dinner for me and my spouse, just a out of the blue kind of thing. The service was great, Tommy was our server and he did a tremendous job! Very polite, and very attentive. The food was exceptional as usual, never disappointing. Would definitely go again, and recommend to all our friends!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best Service Anywhere!!HerrickWedding121314Dined on 8/16/2014Found 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! :-)Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Fine Service, not Fine Food!!LovetoEatOutDined on 6/27/2014Prices 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. Buca di Beppo won't last long!!!

- Awful birthday at Buca di beppoDisappointedinBucaDined on 6/13/2014I 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.Special Features:
- Not fit to eat it! Walked Out!FrancineVIPDined on 5/24/2014Had received a gift certificate for Naples restaurant, and happened to be in Ft. Myers -- decided to take my sisters, the smell alone was not tolerable.

- Great for our partyOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/17/2014We had a graduation dinner for my son at the Ft Myers Buca and it was great. Our waiter was very attentive and just terrific! Steve, the manager, was friendly and very helpful. The food was amazing and dessert was delicious. I will recommend having a party at this restaurant to everyone!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Winning combinationvincitoreDined on 5/11/2014I 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.Special Features:
- Ed Guttery MDOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/11/2014Really like Buca. We had lunch on Mother's Day and it was great. The temp was a little low for some of our group, but otherwise great visit.Special Features:
- Attentive staff and managerdine4occassionsDined on 5/10/2014Although 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.Special Features:
- Awesome!CanDineDined on 5/8/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- unbeatable service!!!thebestDined on 5/1/2014Andrea, 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!!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Top ShelfOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 4/20/2014The food was excellent as well as the service. The waitress did a great job taking care of all our needs and the manager also checked with us a number of times to make sure we were being taken care of properly. This wasn't my first time at Buca and it won't be my last. I highly recommend it for any occasion.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great for birthdays!IbruizDined on 3/9/2014I had my sons 13th birthday here. They let me bring my own cake from Publix and brought out a large Candelabra and card for his birthday and sang a funny song for his birthday. He had a great time. The food was good too!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Interesting Concept, take your timeSonnyDined on 3/8/2014Food 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The food was good but theOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 3/7/2014The food was good but the service was absolutely awful. Our server was training someone but that was not the problem for the slowdown. Probably would not return due to the service that we received.Special Features:

- El Mirador GroupMary4Dined on 2/21/2014We were a group of 18 on a Friday night. We had a lovely room mostly to ourselves, our server (Jen) was excellent and very helpful. Everyone enjoyed their food and, as a matter of fact, most of the dishes were empty at the end of the meal. Thank you for a wonderful experience (it was a first time for most of us)

- Three time dinerRednyDined on 1/1/2014The first two visits were fine, with excellent service. I wasn't overly impressed with the food, rather bland. The third (and probably my final) visit, had a rather inept, non-attentive, distracted waiter. He kept us waiting for any small request, & wasn't very personable. When food finally arrived, it was bland & rather tasteless.I thought I could make it better myself. Disappointed!Special Features:
- Bad experienceBBC1Dined on 1/1/2014Lunch. Got salad ok. Portions were so small would not make appetizer size. Did not get pasta side dishes until asking where they were. Manager walked by, saw portion size and lack of side dish and comped entire check
- Christmas EveningConnieDined on 12/25/2013We had a small party of four to celebrate Christmas. My brother in law was shocked at the portion sizes and flavor. It was a nice change to celebrate together without the cooking and cleaning at home. I will recommend Buca di Beppo to my family and friends. Thank you for a wonderful evening.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
