    food was top notch. It was our first time at Buca. My waitress did not have any knowledge of the food items and made the our experience unpleasant. I ordered 2 different drinks which took 30 minutes to receive and both you were out of. She failed inform me after I sat thirsty half the time I was there. I asked on my reservation to have roses on the table, that didn't happen. Check took almost 45min to get and waitress was taking advantage of our patience.

We had the Lasagna and it was over cooked and tasted every dry. I wouldn't recommend anyone eating here especially not the Lasagna.

I like the touches they add for special occasions. We were on a double date for Valentine's Day and they gave the ladies flowers and ended with Ghiradeli chocolates!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our first experience at Buca di Beppo in Augusta - had dined in one years ago in Denver. As they state, the portions are very large. We ordered different things and brought enough home for another meal. Food was delicious. It might have been more fun to eat in the inner part of the restaurant rather than the "porch", as they call it, which opens onto the mall entrance. They have a great room for a group Will definitely go back.

    I came here with my wife for our anniversary. The average wait without a reservation was 30 minutes, but since we had a reservation they took us right to our table. The waitress was helpful and friendly and when she learned that we were celebrating, she brought out some candles and a card. Everything we ordered, from the mushrooms to the chicken saltimbocca to the shrimp fettuccine was top notch. We are a bit picky about our Italian restaurants and my wife thought it was a bit risky to try a place for the first time on our anniversary, but we were not disappointed at all. We enjoyed Buca's very much and would recommend is place to anyone. Definitely the best Italian restaurant we've been to in Augusta.

    Was there for Thanksgiving. The food was timely and delicious, the service was very mindful and courteous, the table and floor was clean, and the price rather fair for the amount of food we got. The walls are also covered in pictures references Italian culture, Catholic Americans, Italian food, mixed in with a bit of the restaurant's own whimsical humor. Although for those who care, the b/w photo of women on the website also appears in the restaurant.

    The food had too many pepper flakes and garlic powder. The server was polite but my two companions were served quite a while before I was served. My salad did not come out until after we had finished eating, so they crammed my 12.99 salad into a tiny take-out box. Overall, I was not impressed.

    Food and ambience were above average. We went on Veterans Day and it was a nice surprise to learn that the veteran in the group recieved a free entree. The only problem was that when we were ready to leave, there was quite a delay because the manager had to delete the complimentary meal from the ticket, and he could not be found. Except for that everything was delightful. Perhaps managers can give the wait staff the power to remove complimentary meals from the ticket. It will make everything appear seamless to the diner.

    The food was very good. The portions are huge. Always order the small portion and plan to take a lot home. We had a group of 5 and unfortunately my order did not come until most had finished their dinner. Our waiter was new and instead of trying to rectify the problem he hid most of the time. We had to get another waiter to find our drinks and the manager came over and apologized for the delay and comped my meal. I did not get my side order, but by this time I was ready to eat and leave. I was impressed with the waiter who realized what had happened and stepped in to assist. He was the one who informed us of our waiters new status. He also said he was waiting on the adjacent table and to stop him if we needed anything else.

    This was my first trip to Buca di Beppo and I was really disappointed. My pasta was slightly warm and it has TONS of garlic. I love garlic, but it was not cooked all the way and it tasted bitter and I tasted it ALL DAY long. Also, the garlic cheese bread only had a sprinke of cheese and again TONS of slightly cooked garlic. Overall, my first visit was not what I expected. It was a huge disappointment after waiting so long to eat at this establishment.

    Still fairly new, only open a week or so when we went. While they are clearly working a few bugs out and getting their people up to speed (calamari app overcooked, waitress unfamiliar with wines), they are doing all the things necessary to be at the top of their game (new calamari app brought by manager--perfectly cooked, waitress told us her wine class was the next week). These are the things that make a good restaurant. Prices reasonable especially for the amount of food you get. Need to try a few more things before I can give overall food review, but so far, quite good. Will be going again!
