    We were surprisingly disappointed with this visit to Buca Macon. We first visited a year ago for my Christmas work party and were very impressed with the food and service. We had been back three other times, once with friends. On this visit, we had invited some family members to dine here with us. To our embarrassment, we were shocked at the poor service and certain food items being out of stock. There was no bread ready, no soups, and no cheese cake. It took 10 to 15 minutes to get drinks refilled with very few people in the restaurant. Our family members said they would not be back. We are willing to forgive this one bad experience and come back, but if this happens again, you've lost our business.

    The restaurant is inviting a person to come in. Our service with Quila was outstanding. Michelle, the assistant general manager visited each table to determine if everything was good or if she could help. A candelabra with 3 red candles was produced to celebrate my birthday along with a complementary Bucca's lemon cake. The menu was self explanatory and the food all matched or exceeded the description. The portions are generous as we always take home. This is a restaurant for all occasions, is family friendly and meets all needs...bar, great food, and excellent staff and prices. The menu contains a wide variety of choices...we have only been there for dinner but I was assured by friends it is great for lunches.

    A unique aspect of Buca is the kitchen table. There is only one so you better make reservations. As the name implies, it is in the kitchen with all hustle and bustle. The chefs and staff will show you the various dishes they're preparing and occasionally offer a sample. If you grew up in a large Italian family eating in the kitchen, or wish you did, you'll feel right at home. Did I mention great Italian food, too?

    We ate there on a Saturday night around 6:30. At 6:30, they were out of stuffed chicken and lasagna. We ordered a basket of mozzarella bread and garlic bread was brought out. When it was sent back, we received two baskets of mozzarella bread. Also, one of our entrée's was delivered a good ten minutes after the others and only after we asked our server where it was. I don't think I'll be back.

    All was great about the restaurant except the music was just a little too loud. Not many patrons were there when we were there, we came for an early dinner so maybe the staff didn't realized the music was up just a notch too much with the few patrons were there. will be coming back with friends as we were there with family and were very pleased with what we found. It was our first time there and definitely not our last!!

    Chose this restaurant because they boasted they catered to larger groups. We were a family of 9 celebrating a birthday. The atmosphere was fun, the food was fabulous, and yes, they did well with our group. It was so convenient to be able to book online. They were ready for us when we got there. The original table choice was too small, but they promptly moved us to a perfect location. Family style dining, and with the smaller rooms, we felt comfortable talking and and enjoying the space as a family.

    It had been a while since we had been here because the portions had been shrinking on our previous last few visits... well, we were really glad to be back and see that the portions had returned back to the size they were when the restaurant opened. The food was delicious, and we were thrilled to have leftovers of our chicken and pasta. We will definitely be back again very soon!

    Our party at Buca di Beppo was perfect beginning with the hostess showing us to the private dining room which had been set up for the exact number in our group and our server, Paquite, made sure everything was just perfect. She even turned off the music in our room so we could enjoy our own music/slide show. The food was delicious. We will definitely go back for another special occasion.

    This was our last trip to Buca. We (there were 7 in our group) have been here several times before and this time was such a let down! Three of us didn't even finish our meal (brought it home to the dogs) because the quality and taste was not there as before. Coming from an Italian family, Buca, has NEVER let us down, but our experience on 5/24/14 has left a bad taste in our mouth both literally and figuratively!

    We were a group of 14. We arrived 1/2 hr early for our reservation and were promptly seated. One person from our group ordered several dishes to share. The server was stressed because it was her and 1 helper for the room we were in. There were 4 tables in the room. 1 had 6, another 8, and a 4 plus our 14. Once we ordered, she settled down and service was very good. Food was good. We all enjoyed the dinner.

    The food was good, but the service wasn't.After our party was seated, no wait staff came to take our order.Finally a waitress stopped and took our drink orders and someone else delivered the drinks.The single glass of wine we ordered did not come with the other drinks, and we ad to request that it be served.Eventually the waitress returned to take our order which was delivered by someone else in a timely manner.No refills were offered for the wine.Tea refills were made, but not in a timely manner. We had to ask twice for a bread refill. We felt like the orphan child with no dedicated server--it seemed as though our corner was not assigned to any particular server.Despite the poor service, the food was good.

    Went here for Valentine's Day. We were seated at a table next to the bar, which also had two TVs and was near the door. The bar area was loud and distracting. On top of hearing all bar conversations, the two TVs were huge and on two different channels. Being so close to the door it was cold, and on top of that they had the air conditioning on. Both my spouse and I were uncomfortable and distracted. The bread the server brought us was soft but cold. We were told about the serving style of family size/sharing and so dish sizes, and thus prices, were inflated. We ordered the Caprese Salad appetizer, a large manicotti, and a large tiramisu. The two of us finished almost all, and noted nothing special about any of it. Was not worth $66 tab.

    I made the reservation two weeks in advance to be sure we had a table for Valentine's Day. It went wonderfully! We were immediately seated and our waitress appeared after only a small, understandable delay. She appeared when needed without us feeling crowded and our food came quickly. Much more quickly than I expected, especially for such a busy night! We allowed ourselves an hour and a half to eat before our next plans of the night and we were in and out in under an hour; that is with us taking a moment to decide our order and having dessert! I definitely love this place for date nights and everything in between.

    It was my first time visiting and it was for my friend's birthday so I made the reservations online. Apparently, the staff didn't pay attention to the comments I made in the reservation but other than that the visit was great. the menu is extensive and I'll definitely have to go back just so I can try other things on the menu. all of the staff was very friendly, even the people that were not our primary waitress were friendly and checked on us. the food was delicious. I went on a week night so it wasn't crowded. Having all of those courses, it ends up being a long leisurely meal, things I haven't had since I was in Italy, years ago. I was a nice evening.

    I love the Olive Garden, but after eating at Bucca...I will always pick this restaurant over Olive Garden. My husband loved the Prosciutto stuffed Chicken. He raved on it for weeks. I loved the pasta sampler they served that had four different types of pasta. The sauce doesn't have that processed taste alot of pastas and pizza's have. It tasted fresh and delicious! It is intimate and the portions are for two, but we got separate plates so we could try both and have leftovers for later. Best restaurant EVER!
