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.

Mother’s Day celebration. Our reservation was for 5 we got there at 4:35 so I went inside and the hostess said our table was not ready to come back before 5. We all went inside and our table was still not ready which was fine. The hostesses told us we had to wait for our table longer because people were still seating down. I ask can we get another table and she said no because that table was for someone else. Now remember we were there at 4:53 reservation for 5 the table was for another reservation after 5. That did not make sense since we were there for our 5 reservation why did we need too wait for the people that had reservations after us to seat before us. I had to call the manager and they seated us within 5 minutes at a table that has been available for 1/2 hour when I first enter at 4:35. Then I went to the bathroom and in the back room there were 3 more table open. I honestly did not get that. Then the other problem was it’s Mother’s Day and they ran out of lasagna well I did not get anything else just the antipasti salad, the food was taking too long other then that I do like the place. They just need to organize the tables a little better what is the use of the reservations.

Celebrating an early Mother’s Day, it was fantastic as always. We ordered the Chicken-parm & a delightful apple, cranberry salad. Mason provided amazing service, even the manager Brian & chef came by our table. They accommodate us beyond any expectations. Fun place to dine. Easy parking nearby in private lot, outside and indoor seating available. Also, they have a full bar, great selections and specials.

Our waitress was very pleasant. The food was great a lot of food. The small spaghetti was enough for 3 people. Only thing we don’t know if we were suppose to get bread we did not and none was offer same for the Parmesan as well. It was our first time there the other table got bread after we were done eating. The colossal dessert was enough for 5 people. Overall everything was fine will go again

The restaurant was crowded and very noisy at 6 PM on a Saturday. We waited awhile for our server and she was kind of a scatter brained and not very helpful. The food was plentiful and very good. We were still there at 7:30 and the restaurant was much quieter - so I wouldn’t come before 7 PM.

Poor service, it took 15 min for the waitress to introduce himself to our table, another 15 min for serving bread, no utensil on the table.

Seller was very polite but did not explain that everything was done in family size portions so we ordered way too much. He seemed to expect that we knew how the menu was structured but since we didn’t have physical menus and had to look up on a QR code, it was hard to understand and it all felt rushed. Otherwise, the food was very good and the waiter did a very good job of taking care of us. If

The service by Rachel was simply outstanding. However the check in process was to a degree, not considerate. They wanted to tuck us in a room full of tables with people when they had entire dining halls with one table with customers and the rest were empty. When we asked not to be seated in the room full of people (as per to keep social distancing) we were made to wait 25 minutes by the host. It took for us to call the manager to be seated in the table we requested in the first place.
Other than that would have been a great experience
