My Grandchildren loved it.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat placeThis is was a great dining experience the food was great we ordered the chicken and Italian sausage zitti it was great our server was very nice and we got our orders fast the only knock is that the manager was coming through the dining area barking orders to employees while we were eating and that's why I didn't give it a 5 star rating it aasnt that busy in the restaurant for him to be acting like that outside of that we loved the place portion sizes blew me away I will definitely will be coming back again despite the management miscue6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGroup Luncheon / Baby ShowerWe loved the "private dining room" which provided lots of space for seating as well as a table for gifts & special dessert. We were greeted by very friendly employees and service was excellent. Luncheon entrees were larger than expected and delicious. We will definitely return for another office party - possibly at Christmas.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMfirst visitWe had received a gift card and this was our first visit. Loved the wide selection of foods. Waitress was knowledgeable and attentive. Portions very good size and good temperature. Will definitely return!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMy birthdayBrought my family there for the first time and they enjoyed it!!!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMToo little food & seasoningThis was our second visit and we were a little disappointed in the food taste and amount served.
Manicotti - Only received four pasta rolls, should have been at least six to serve two people
Fettucine Alfredo with Shrimp - There was a lot of pasta with very few shrimp for the added cost. The pasta was not seasoned well.
Garlic bread with Motzarella - Very good and plenty of it.
Caprese Salad - Motz with tomato slices - Very nice and enough for three people.
Service staff was friendly and efficient.
Enjoyed the noise level; provided background that still allowed us to talk.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMA really good place for aA really good place for a group of friends or family to dine out.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service!My husband took my mother and I here for Mother's Day. We were seated right at our reservation time. Food was delicious and our waitress, Debra, was outstanding. Our five year old son is a picky eater and the restaurant gladly made him a cheese pizza without sauce.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAWESOME!!My son took me to dinner for mother's day. Although we had reservations I still expected a wait for our table and our food. Surprise, we were seated immediately, our waitress arrived for our drink orders within seconds and our dinner order was taken once the drinks were quickly delivered. Outstanding service!! Our meal was on the table within ten minutes!! The food was delicious.. we love Buca!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food Served Family-StyleThe atmosphere at Buca di Beppo in Macon is busy but comfy. Service was initially slow, but progressed into high gear after our appetizer round. The four of us shared small plates of Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken (my fave), Chianti Braised Short Ribs, and Quattro al Forno. We ended with a Colossal Brownie Sundae served in a giant martini glass. It was yummy. For three of our group, it was a first-time visit to this restaurant chain, and the decision was unanimous that we would return.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNice for a changeMy husband and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary. I had wanted to try Buca since my last visit to Macon but they were booked.
I had a white wine sauce pasta dish with artichoke, sun dried tomato and peas. It was good, just be ready for all the different flavors (which is exactly what I wanted) Never have been much of a bread dipped in oil & vinegar person, prefer warm bread & butter. My husband had the eggplant parm and enjoyed it.
I think the most exceptional part of the lunch was the service. Our waiter was EXCELLENT!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food- terrible serviceThe food was outstanding! The ambience was pleasant and interesting. Our waitress was slow, inefficient, and quite lackadaisical. We constantly had to wave someone down or eat very loudly to get the attention of a server. We spent $100 for a lunch for four. The food was worth it- but left a bad taste in my mouth because of the service.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is probably the tenthThis is probably the tenth time we have eaten at the Buca in Macon and fine it a very pleasant place. We like the family oriented atmosphere eating style, the service, and of course the food. My girlfriend and I find the Buca a great meeting place where we are able to share a couple glasses of fine wine, order to our hunger level, and the ambience is quiet enough we can engage in personal conversation. We are both 60+ and had our first meeting at teh Buca di Peppo in Macon.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time, loved the foodFirst time, loved the food and the family dining concept! We've already recommended Buca to friends and plan on taking a group soon!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOnline ReservationsThe restaurant was easy to find online in the area. I really enjoyed being able to make a reservation online and have first class service upon arrival to the restaurant. The communication through email was just right. The hostess was very cordial and the server engaging. The food was excellent and was served in a prompt manner.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMArrived at 6:30 and was finishedArrived at 6:30 and was finished with the meal by 7:15. It made me wonder if our meal was either left over from lunch and warmed up OR it was frozen and microwaved.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good foodFood was excellent. Portions were large. Only drawback was menu and serving style a bit hard to understand at first.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphere, huge servingsGreat atmosphere, huge servings of great food and great service. A great addition to Macons restaurant choices. We had a party of 9 and ate in the Pope room. Will definitely be back.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlfredo is a No go!My hubby and I love Buca!! We literally eat there a couple of times a week! However, we were very disappointed with the Alfredo. Maybe we are just so used to all the flavor we get with everything else. This was just bland and dry with barely any sauce! Buca is still our favorite, but we won't be ordering Alfredo again!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMVery slow start, but tasty food....Went for my wifes birthday....Food was excellent.. However, we sat for almost 15 min before our waitress came to greet/take our drink order, and that puts us getting our drinks 20 min or so after getting seated... The food was excellent and the cheese cake was out of this world... The initial wait kind of took away from it being our first visit though, especially when it came time to pay the 70+ dollar dinner bill....3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLarge PartyThe food was great, and everyone there was very friendly and helpful. We had a pretty large group for a rehearsal dinner, and they did an excellent job.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFun place to dine.We went with a group before the recent Elton John concert, explained to our server that we needed to eat and get out of there so we could get to the concert. We presented the server with a coupon we received via email for free ravioli when we ordered. When our food arrived, the ravioli was not there, it arrived well after most of our meal had been eaten. And then our server, who had been pretty attentive up to this point, disappeared, with our check - why does this always seem to happen? We were delayed probably 10 minutes or so longer than was necessary. Too bad, other than these two things, our meal had been delicious and fun.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect spot for all!We love Buca! It is our favorite spot to take family and friends! The food and service are always excellent! The atmosphere is so nice, and very unique! Pictures that can easily strike up a conversation about are all over! This is definitely a place that our city has needed for a while!!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time eating at BucaFirst time eating at Buca with a group of five. Will return to eat there.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have visited the Buca diWe have visited the Buca di Beppo several times and have always enjoyed our visit. The food was always been great, with good service and as an older couple enjoy ordering menu items and being able to split them with no extra plate change.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
