Buca di Beppo - Maitland
We celebrated my daughter'sWe celebrated my daughter's 18th birthday, she had a wonderful time. The food and service was very good. Their multicolored birthday cake was delicious. The staff sang a special birthday song and signed b-day card along with lighted red candles in a silver three candle holder. I recommend this place for the food, service an overall ambiance.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good place to eat!Service was fast. This time we went for lunch and it wasn't too crowded which is good considering I have a toddler. Waitor was very pleasant and personable.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBrithday CelebrationWe had a fabulous time celebrating my brother's 40th birthday. The food and the service was excellent as always. The table we were given for our party of 8 plus a highchair was a little tight as we were all adults (and not the skinniest ones) - -but the staff was accomodating and allowed us to pull the table away from the wall to help feel like we had more space.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner at the "kitchen table"As always, the food and service were terrific. Nuf said on that.
While there are a variety of seating at Buca (from intimate to large party), my favorite is their "kitchen table." It is a booth which is directly within the kitchen. This is "front row" to watching the order pickup counter; it is lots of fun. We get to ask the servers about the different food bring brought out, watch how they prepare food, and see all the guests go by as they are shown to their tables, which passes right through the kitchen). We even greet the arriving guests as if we owned the place -- geeky, but the guests and the servers really enjoy it.
Want to try the kitchen table?... Ask for it in the comments section when making reservations.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm stuffed!Prices for entrees seem steep but once you realize it will feed you twice it's not so bad.

The stuffed shells were a little spicy but my husband loved them!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Food Worth the NoiseThe food is amazing, it's baffling to me how it can be so noisy when everyone should be eating not talking. But laughter and talking over the dinner table has always been a sure sign people are happy! Please open one in Lake County for us do we don't have to drive so far to have great food and good fun.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMmade mother's day specialWe had reservations for 2:15. Upon arrival at 2:10 we walked by maybe 50 patrons waiting outside and another 20 or so in the lobby where we checked in with the host. At exactly 2:15 they called us for our table! What a relief. The 4 of us were taken to our table where we enjoyed our meal with prompt and friendly service and a delicious meal. Just can't say enough about the way the staff handled what must have been a very hectic day for them. Thanks BUCA of Maitland!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMItalianoGreat place to have a family group dinner !

We were disappointed when it closed, and wanted to see where the closest one was. The restaurant in Maitland is still worth the drive. The restaurant is unique, with the different rooms. It is best to come hungry, because everything is so delicious and well made. The service is attentive and not rushed at all, particularly Craig Taylor. We would love to have one back in Daytona. My wife has already decided that she wants her next birthday there.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an excellent time.We had an excellent time. Our servers, Jeffrey and Jeffrey were very good.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a family style restaurant,This is a family style restaurant, which is kind of fun.
The service was great and most of the food was great too. The shrimp florentine, however, was really boring and bland. The eggplant parmigiana and wedge salads were excellent. I didn't care for the chicken stuffed ham, but I'm not much of a meat person. Everyone else thought it was great.
Don't expect the kids portion to actually be kid sized. It was the same size as an adult portion at most restaurants.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMvery accommodating when somevery accommodating when some of our members could not handle the booth they moved us to a table. next time, put "need table not booth" in special requests4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place!!!!!Great food!!! Great service!!!!! Love the salad ...4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for groupsWe have been to this location numerous times. We have been for birthday dinners, friends in town and our wedding rehearsal dinner. This time we were there for our 9 year-olds birthday. We always get 3-4 entrees. This time was no different. The service was quick and friendly. The food was good and the walls are always fun to look over. Would recommend going with at least 3 people, so you can try at least 2 entrees.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best!My husband and I dined with you for the first time this past Saturday. Our experience exceeded our expectations. The atmosphere was vibrant, our waiter was very friendly and prompt, and our food was beyond delicious. Were definitely added this to the small list of our favorite places to dine.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHole in the ground? Seriously......Since the Buca closed in Daytona Beach, we now take the 50 mile drive to Maitland when the urge hits us. I lived in Italy for 5 years and can attest to the quality of the food. The only dissapointment was the veal dish (saltimbocca). You would do well to put your money in the price of milk fed veal and leave off the expensive prossuito. What we were served was "vitello;" not top of the line, milk fed veal. Because there is little grazing land in Italy, milk fed veal is plentiful. Vitello is a born calf which is fed grains/grasses before they go to the professional markets. Hence the somewhat tough "veal" dishes.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time and food!We recently went to Buca's for my son's birthday. It was a great time. The greeters were friendly, our wait staff was very helpful, and the food was delicious as usual. The manager also made a point to greet us and make sure the food was to our liking. Overall, it was a wonderful experience as always!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food Great Place GreatGreat Food Great Place Great Service. we were there easter Sunday and unfortunately the A/C was not working and it was extremely uncomfortable.
