    We were a party of four. Your menu items for two or for four didn't appeal to us as we all like to order our favorites which are all different. Also we had printed out several coupons and not a one was acceptable. As senior citizens we take advantage of any savings we can get.

    We love Buca di Beppo in Florida, but this one left us unsatisfied. I hope we were there on a particularly bad service day for them. The food was very slow, and while the employees were very kind and friendly, they were out of the dessert we requested, and forgot to leave the dressing on the side of our salad. The spicy chicken rigatoni was disappointing. I make a better version at home. The sous chef was kind enough to make up for the slow service by giving us a free dessert. We'll come back, and I hope it is tastier and speedier next time!

    We celebrated Father's Day at Buca with a large group of family members. Food was delicious and service was very good too. I decided to take my husband back that same week because it was his birthday and he loved the stuffed mushrooms! Our friend's birthday was the same day. I made an online reservation for 4. Once again the food was delicious and our server was fantastic! The manager approached our table and gave us some discount coupons because the birthday "girl" and "boy" were too full to have dessert. My only concern is that the entree's do not come with a side dish. Portions are large but side dishes are a bit pricey. However, we will be going back soon! Excellent experience.

    We reserved in advance for 9 people. They had the table ready for us with two servers. The servers were great about making suggestions for on food and on serving sizes for our group. The food was wonderful. The only suggestion I would make was that the music was a bit loud so it was harder to hear the conversations going on at the table. Overall a wonderful experience and we will be back.

    The food here is good, reasonably priced and the portions are large. It's "family" style so for 2 people you order one dish and share, 2 dishes for 4, etc. The decor is 50s Italian resturant so it leads to conversations. I wouldn't describe the place as romantic or upscale, but that isn't a bad thing, except maybe for a first date. It's different from other chain Italian restaurants in the area, which they don't capitalize on. They also need to advertise more as they're located in the mall, which isn't common in this town as it is in other areas of the country. I reccommend this restaurant to others and plan on returning in the future.

    The service was great and food was fine but it was full of small children, loud children, and it's not a quiet restaurant to begin with...perhaps it's the mall location that attracts shoppers (with already tired/cranky kids) and lunch crowd. Will try again at dinner or request a table away from a lot of small children.

    I made a reservation online. I contacted the restaurant to confirmed my reservation and to requested a booth because I would have my niece and son with us. She informed me that it was taken care of. We check in to reservation. The host took us to our table and we were not given a booth. I informed the host that I had contacted earlier to request a booth because I had two kids.They did not have a booth available. We stayed at our seats where we were given. Our waiter took our of drinks and food. My and son drink 's were serve but not my husband and niece. It took about 20 minutes to get there's after the food was already served. At that point I was very disappointed. We order desert. It also took 30 minutes to get served.

    We knew Buca was family style, but geesh! First of all, it took 15 minutes before we were even acknowledged by the wait staff. Five servers walked right by our table. FINALLY, our server came to take drink orders. I don't think she was supposed to be our server, but she felt badly for us. She was definitely polite and helpful. The prices are astronomical! $20 for a plate of baked ziti that costs probably $3-4 to make?!?! And $15 for salad! It's free at Olive Garden...and everyone can get what they want there. At Buca, you feel trapped by your party. Everyone has to agree on what they want or you're going to spend a fortune. Even my 10 year old daughter said, "I don't think this is a very good concept for a restaurant." I COMPLETELY agree!

    Had two families which included 5 children under 6 and a baby. Service was slow. Took over an hour to get the food and then the children's meal was incorrect and the pasta was overcooked. The food was good overall. Server just didn't seem to be organized or prepared to handle a group of this size with children. Not sure that we will go back to this Buca. Have been to others were the food was excellent and great service.

    I like the family style dishes and the different type of dishes that are offered. This time was a very busy night and the appetizer arrived after the main dishes, then the salad arrived during the main dishes. The waiter apologized for the mix up and had the manager come over and talk with us. He did take the appetizer off of our bill. The waiter was very busy and we felt he was overwhelmed. The service was okay. Also make sure you ask for bread the first visit we did not know about this and thought we had to pay for the garlic bread. This visit we asked for bread and got the "house" bread for free. I would like to try this place one more time.

    I have visited this restaurant chain over the years in various areas where I have lived and traveled including Columbus OH, Buffalo NY, Pittsburgh PA and now Winchester VA. I have noticed the quality of the food is not what I remember and the value of the price, especially on the appetizers, is not what people would expect. The cheesy garlic bread was over priced for the portion received....in the future if I visit, I will just ask for more of the free bread brought to the table. The fettucine Alfredo was disappointing and not nearly as good as other places, like Olive Garden. There was not enough of the alfredo sauce in proportion to the fettucine pasta and appeared rather dry. The baked ziti was also dry and could have used more sauce.

    It is clear that the opening of a new restaurant is not without its challenges! We waited about 25 minutes for our reservation and service thereafter was sporadic. We advised Nathan, our server, that we had theater tickets, and he did his best to make up for the late seating. On the + side, everyone was apologetic to the point that one of our party said, "If only they'd stop apologizing and get us our drinks!" It took 3 tries to get the drinks right. Children's plates came out before our salads, so they were finished eating well before our entrees arrived. iPads to the rescue. The food was great, as usual for BdB. Service was pleasant if unpredictable. We made it to the theater with seconds to spare. We will be back.

    We've been to Buca's in Florida several times, so were excited when we learned the restaurant was opening in Winchester. Our anniversary dinner was outstanding. Service was great, plenty of options for dinner combinations, portions were huge!, and we were greeted by managers who stopped by for conversation. A most pleasant evening, one we will repeat very soon. Highly recommended!
