The hostess was VERY rude and said we couldn’t sit because we had reserved the table too close to the reservation time and said we should go eat somewhere else!
The owner found out and was really kind and gave us a table

Everything served here is family style so you have to be comfortable sharing your dishes and agreeing on what everyone wants. However the food is delicious and it turned out to be a good deal for a family.

Hosts were rude. Didn’t welcome us into the restaurant. Waited an hour for our food, which never ended up coming. Tables that ordered after us got their food, ate and left. We couldn’t wait anymore due to other plans we had. Manager did nothing but say he was sorry and that he would make the food for us if we stayed. Terrible birthday experience. Will never go here ever again. And recommend every single one of our friends to never go there. We went to the one in celebration the next day and had an amazing time.

I love this Italian Restaurant. The portions are good, the flavor is very good, and the prices are friendly. It's a good place to take a large group, as the plates are for family style sharing, and are generous enough for everyone to get their fill. If it is only two of you, plan to get the "small portion" and expect to bring some home!

Slow service (although waiter was engaging and friendly), dirty silverware on table, indifferent greeting at podium, lost our reservation (they claimed they did not have one even after I showed them the confirmation; then reported our reservation cancelled to OpenTable). Overly loud as restaurant filled up.

Got seated at 1:30pm for a Sunday lunch with 8 people in our party.
Waitress took our drink order but we had to wait 10 minutes for straws.
Silverware was then provided; half of it stained with food stuck to it.
menus had food on them. Staff is friendly and helpful but service was slow.
Took 1 HOUR to get our food, 2 hours by the time we paid our check.
Food was edible but I could have made better at home; nothing great.
To call this Italian food is as sacrilegious as their decor (see pic)
Definitely a first ...and a last time.

Food was pretty good - average. Dessert was not great. Sundae was so frozen and put together ahead of time so you could hardly dig into it. Tiramisu proportions were not on point at all. Too much mascapone cheese. Service was kind of slow, but servers were friendly. Overall, it was an average dining experience.

When we visit w/family once or twice a year, we usually head to this location of Buca. We were disappointed in the wait-service this trip. Not sure if the waiter was new, poorly trained, and/or indifferent. It did put a bit of a damper on the experience.

Busy restaurant but our Waiter was attentive as possible. The food was absolutely amazing and reminded me of my family's home style cooking. The only complaint I have is of the tiramisu. It was Bland and the texture was completely off

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!
