Terrific food, drinks and service. 🍝🍕🥖🍹🍺 excellent value as well as most everything is family style. A small spaghetti feeds at least 3 hungry adults plus leftovers. Highly recommended for large groups as well as small families.

The food was mediocre at best. Burnt rigatoni. Fettuccine alfredo with VERY little alfredo sauce . Almost all of the fettuccine was dry. My son said the chicken parmesan tasted off. Salad was exceptionally soaked in dressing. Salad greens were wilted. It was an apple gorgonzola cheese salad and literally only about 3 crumbles of gorgonzola cheese in a $12.50 salad. Only 1 server working and she was doing the best she could. Only 1 hostess and never saw a manager. It took us almost 2 hours from start to finish for lunch. This place needs help. My son said the best part of his lunch was the bread and olive oil. Now that's sad.

It is not the locations fault I rated this poorly. The restaurant food is on a major decline.

It has been over 10 years since since I’ve been in a Bucas and this is not how I remembered it. Buca today is like an everyday TGIF but an Italian version. Server had too many tables, food was terrible, and ambiance was horrendous. Do yourself a favor and visit another restaurant

Waited an hour and a half for a margarita pizza.it was the worst pizza we have ever eaten. $25 for a flatbread with minimal cheese and terrible sauce. It should be fresh tomatoes! The apple salad was good however and the manager did apologize and take off the pizza after waiting so long. We would not return.

I already had a review started and somehow lost it. So this one is short and sweet. You guys were extremely understaffed for the amount of customers you were accepting. Everyone is understaffed and fortunately people are patient about it right now. But not if management doesn’t know how to manage the business. Only seat the amount of patrons you have to cover with your staff. I don’t mind not being able to eat at Buca due to reservations are closed. What I do mind is you accepting my reservation and then I walk into a horrible situation. Multiple parties upset about little to no service. No water or drink order taken from out table after 22 mins of being seated. Buca is a great organization. I worked for them years ago at the Dallas location for Frank Estes. Do better management. Say no to over seating.

The location has too few staff working the dining room. It’s managers are either cooking or tending bar. The place routinely gets overwhelmed with online orders during the dinner hour and dining room guests get slow service and cold food. There are also computer problems with coupons and gift cards that often will take a server 15 minutes to fix which means that drink refill waits. Avoid.

I feel so bad for our poor waiter. The manager didn’t get our waiter help and they didn’t step up to help him either. Poor guy had 18 of us with 0 help. He tried so hard and he deserves 6 stars. Food was good. But manager spent more time chatting at the bar then helping her staff. Sad.

As regulars this time we decided to try something different. We were served by Steven which is friendly, funny & his suggestions are appreciated. We ordered Sangria, Martinis & IPAs, along w/their delicious apple salad, chicken wings & calamari, all very much worth it. Joining their club is a smart choice as one receives via-email great specials & discounts. Seating available inside or out and their daily happy-hour is only at the bar Mon-Fri 4-6pm. Parking nearby and located 10 mins from Walt Disney World in the beautiful neighborhood of Celebration, Fl.

First of all, no individual plates. Must order to share. Everything. Including salad. So people must agree to eat the same thing. Thumbs down for that.

Six out of our six in our party thought the food was absolutely TERRIBLE. The appetizers were OK, though. Calamari, fried mozzarella and garlic bread. But the rest was inedible. Seasoning was non-existent. The ground beef in everything tasted like nothing. And the chicken parmesan was underdone. Pale and soggy. We were grossed out sitting there with all that uneaten food. Our server was great though. But DO NOT BOTHER WITH THIS GIMMICKY MEDIOCRITY.

We requested a table for 12 with about 30 minutes notice. Table was ready when we arrived, and the ambiance was PERFECT! Round table in a round room. Just enough room for all 12 people. Dishes served family style in large dishes, and they DO NOT skimp on the portions. My family likes to eat, and we still had leftovers. Staff was very friendly and took care of all of us just right. We were in town on a Disney vacation and wanted something other than park food. We definitely found a gem in Buca di Beppo.
