Our server was great. She was fast, efficient and very professional. The food was great. But the hostesses were terrible I had a reservation for 7:45 pm for 6 ppl I arrived at 7:40 they told me it was going to take 1 hr and 45 min to sit me. I noticed the restaurant had several empty tables. After almost 50 min, they sat us from there everything else went great.

Booked for 7.00 pm, arrived 5 mins early, told that table had to be cleared and reset and would be ready in a few minutes. After waiting for 30 mins and asking how long it would be and kept being told the same we actually complained to the manager. That worked because 5 mins later we were seated. Katherine, the server more than made up for the delay by her pleasant and pleasing manner although the food did take longer than usual to be served.

Our reservation was for 6:00 p.m. and we were seated in five minutes. We waited 9 minutes until our server arrived and took our drink order. It took particularly long to get an iced tea and a water. We finally ordered Chicken Limone and a small spaghetti with marinara sauce. We waited over 30 minutes (drinks were empty be this time) for our food. We asked for refills but our server never returned until we were finished eating. We needed a box and that took another 10 minutes. We were going to use a credit card to pay (to get points) but decided to pay cash so we didn’t have to wait another 15 minutes for our server to return.

This is the second time it took longer than it should have for dinner. If you’re in a hurry, this is not the place to come. Also, the spaghetti had a “musty” taste. Not sure what caused it but my friend also tasted it.

The food was very good! The noise level is always loud, but because of the smaller rooms, you can still have great conversations at your table. The only complaint we have is that there were 3 of us and only one wanted dessert...a cannoli. However, you couldn't order just one cannoli, you had to order 3 (for family style). Seems odd that you can't order just one! Wish there was a way to order single portions!

It was a perfect choice for a lot of people with different pallets. The children enjoyed the bread and spaghetti while the adults also ate chicken Marsala and salmon. There was also a baked pasta dish everyone loved. The chicken Marsala was tasty but the pieces we small. The salmon was also flavored well but the salmon was a bit fishy. All in all everyone ate and enjoyed themselves. This restaurant is kid friendly.

A few of the entrees came out ice cold after waiting well over an hour for them. The restaurant was pretty much completely empty. Our server was very inattentive and not friendly at all. The food was ok at best. My daughter enjoyed her birthday sundae which was $15 we also never received the complimentary birthday gift as advertised out front. Not the experience we were hoping for

We ordered the lemon chicken with capers, which was tender and flavorful. However, for $27.00 for four pieces of chicken (for 2 people) is quite expensive. A small spaghetti with marinara sauce came with it and it was enough for 2 people but we still feel the chicken was pricey.

Service was good but the restaurant was quite empty, so service should be good. We were seated in a room with three large parties and they were very noisy.

We waited exactly 17 minutes (yes, we timed it) for a server to greet us and the only reason he finally came to the table is because we complained to the person who seated us. He was extremely slow with drink refills and we finally gave up asking.
The spaghetti portion was large, especially for two people but neither of us really liked the sauce very much. It had a strange flavor.

Atmosphere was fine but we were seated very close to the front door and every time it opened we got a cold draft.

All-in-all, we would not return.

Service was friendly and prompt. Food was slightly above average. Calamari was just ok but the marinara served with it was good, and our short rib orecchiette was slightly bland, butnthe actual short rib was delicious. Only major complaint was the restaurant was slightly stuffy and a little on the warm side.

Made a reservation and still waited forty five minutes before sitting down. Seater said the were alternating walk ups with reservation’s. What’s the point of making a reservation? After being seated the waiter brought oil and twenty minutes later he brought the bread to dip in the oil. They ran out of lasagna and then chicken. They are not equipped for busy Saturday evening crowd. Won’t go back on a weekend again. Never had this problem at The Olive Garden. Or Carraba’s.

We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation time, and we’re not seated in till almost 30 minutes past the time… This follows trying to call the restaurant directly for a reservation and not being able to get one for a party of six. Service was extremely slow, and the silverware on the table was all dirty… Not just dirty but actual remnants of food still on the silverware. After asking for silverware it was still another 10 minutes before it was brought to the table. Food was pleated and sat there waiting for silverware for that entire period of time. By the time we could actually eat the pasta was cold.

So I made reservations for my family and I to have Thanksgiving dinner @ Bucca. We came to this location in Orlando because we were visiting the theme parks. It sounds wierd to be having Thanksgiving at an Italian place but they were promising an amazing spread and their food is usually good. We arrived for our reservation early and were seated at the reserved time of 8:15. This is also when we came to learn that they no longer had turkey or any of the other sides for the tradional dinner. Of course we were bummed sinced it was the first time we weren't home for Thanksgiving and the first time we wouldn't be eating anything traditional on that night. After deciding we should just stay and make the best of the evening, we started looking over the original menu and picking out Italian classics to have for dinner. After about a half hour we started to place our order, we start by ordering an app and soup.....they have no soup. Ok no biggie. Then we ask for spaghetti and meatballs....wait for it... They have no meatballs. It was at this point that I knew our Thanksgiving dinner was ruined. I decided to pack up my baby and rest of the family and just pick up fast food on the way to the hotel. Worst experience ever at a restaurant. Service was super slow on top of all the other issues. Definitely would not reccomend.

We have gone every Thanksgiving for 4 years now and this was one of the worst. Turkey was fatty and dry, their sausages stuffing was horrible I wish they could give you a choice of regular stuffing or sausage stuffing. It was also dry and was like they opened a bag of breadcrumbs and just mixed it with the sausage and nothing else. It was dry didn’t even stay together so you were eating dry breadcrumbs. The beans didn’t taste good either another thing I wish they’d let you substitute for another vegetable because nobody liked them hard and sauce flavor they had was not good. So glad we ordered 2 regular pasta dishes they were wonderful at least but paying $135 for the turkey feast was a waste of money. Server was very nice but busy so barely saw her. And the manager wouldn’t take their own coupon which I’ve used for past 3 thanksgivings and it does not say on coupon not good on holiday so was not happy about that. We may start looking for a new place for thanksgiving if this is how it’s going to be.
