We gathered as 2 families of cousins, visiting from Michigan and Nebraska. We dined in the Pope Room with a bust of Pope Francis on the lazy susan on the center of the table.
Service and food were fantastic.
Kudos to all the staff.

I've been wanting to visit this restaurant for a long time. The opportunity arose when my friends and I were attending a conference in the area. Needless to say, Buca di Beppo did not disappoint, fun atmosphere(i.e. the Pope's table) and great food!

There were plenty of pretty bad reviews that I've read in the last few days before heading here. Only reason I went out of the norm and not going due to bad reviews was to get their ice cream sundae desert.

I don't really have high expectations in terms of service, but it was good. I think I got one of the better servers of the afternoon.

Food wise, we ordered a Large Pizza Supreme. Figured can't really go wrong with pizza! They said it would serve 5 people so I was expecting something larger. With 2 kids, and 2 adults, we were able to finish the whole thing with ease. A larger pizza would have been nice, this didn't appear to be like the other Large pizzas I've gotten.

The desert, was as expected. Awesome. 6 brownies, under chocolate and vanilla ice cream. All topped with what seemed like a whole bottle of whipped cream, fudge, and caramel. This is definitely recommended.

Can't go wrong here. Prices are a bit on the high side, but it's placed right in the Florida Mall so you do pay that premium. The restaurant is better suited for large groups, as their other plates, other than pizza all seemed pretty large and fit their "family style" mantra.

This location continues to go down in quality. I go to this restaurant a lot for personal and business reasons as the family sized portions fit most of my needs. Every visit brings a challenge. Sometimes it's rude service, sometimes it's slow service, and even with a reservation through open table or by phone, my party ends up waiting. This most recent time we were seated right away and the waiter was polite. We never got bread until the meal came, and that's only because we asked for it numerous times throughout our visit. We were told that they had run out and fresh loaves were in the oven. When it finally came, the bread was cold and we never were offered the accompanying olive oil. Trivial as this may seem, the mounting issues are leaving me with the urge to find a new eatery to take large groups.

The only complaint was that the booth seats are worn out. We sunk down in the seats, and after sitting there for an hour and a half, both our backs were hurting. We are not large heavy people. Seats need to have much more support. Food and service were excellent!

This was a very disappointing experience. Having been to other Buca restaurants I did not hesitate to book my mother's 90th birthday party there. It was just a disaster from the get go. I had called them directly to make sure we could get a room for 20 people and was assured that there was no problem Upon arrival, we were taken to a large table to the back of the main dining room. I asked the manager about it and really got no satisfactory answer. Not sure what happened. He comped us a large appetizer guessing that it would makes us happy. Wrong. The place was noisy, we couldn't even hear ourselves talk. My mother was miserable which made us miserable. So then we tried to order which was another disaster. We didn't have a clue how much food to get for all of us. I was told later by the waitress that we should have had a special menu so we could have planned ahead of time. We wound up ordering 2 pizzas, a large bowl of spaghetti and meatballs that had very little sauce and tough meatballs and a bowl of ravioli which was drenched in sauce. We quickly ate our food, paid the outrageous bill and left. I will never go there again. It really ruined my mother's party. One thing I want to add is that we only had one waitress for the entire table, and she did the best job she could possibly do under the circumstances. Don't remember her name though.

This is a family style dining restaurant, which means that 2 or 3 people eat the same course. That is difficult in a family that likes different foods and have to settle on something together. The fried mozzarella is probably handmade and delicious but expensive for fried cheese. We got the Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken which was three chicken breasts. However we could hardly see or taste the prosciutto. To call it stuffed is an overstatement and we probably paid more for that barely there prosciutto. The pesto cream sauce was very good and we asked for more to dip our chicken in. The entrees do not come with a side for the $25, so a side is another $10 for pasta. Which is crazy. I think this place would be good for a larger family or group that can share multiple dishes but for 2 people it just didn't work as well.

I have been to this restaurant many times and always had a goood experience but this last time was the  worst experience I have ever had in my entire life at any restaurant ever and was extremely dissapointed because it was supposed to be a mother's day dinner and it took two hours to get our food and it was cold and our chicken was raw in the middle and when they took it back after waiting another 30 minutes we left because our food still wasn't ready. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER. And the server just laughed it off when we were upset. He was the worst server and when the manager came she wasn't any better. I have never in my life walked out of a restaurant this was the first time. And I am not a complainer because I'm a chef so I know what it's like to work in a restaurant so I am more patient than most people but that night was absolutely ridiculous! And this was on 5/13/17

Party of 4 at 5:00 should not be a difficult table to wait on. Service was the slowest I have ever experienced at any restaurant in my 40+ years. $22.00 for 3 pieces of chicken with no pasta...come on, really? Ordered pasta ($30 for manicotti) - had to beg for sauce and when it finally arrived over 15 minutes later it was ice cold. Shocked they didn't try to charge extra for the sauce. Went there for a birthday - ended up leaving before the birthday song cause it took 10 minutes for our leftovers to be boxed up and everyone was getting really angry due to how long everything took.

So over priced, dirty floors, slowest service ever and food was not that great. Not going back here!

My husband and I decided to dine here for valentine's day. We expected a romantic atmosphere. But instead it was a bit to noisy and the tables were 6 seaters that had Flowers in the middle as dividers. We ended up sitting next to a parent with their child, definitely not what we had expected. In their defense I believe this restaurant is meant for a larger crowd, I'm sure it would be nice to go with a large group.
