Food was below sub par not traditional, over cooked, and cold?!?!? Decor was not “traditional” it was cheap and old.. seems as if it’s a chain.. Olive Garden would have been a better choice..

Good we delicious as always. Erica who helped with our reservation went above and beyond. Our waitress however was not having a good night. It started out with spilling our drinks all over which I get happens, but typically when a server does this they are very apologetic - we got oops it happens ??? Was not attentive and when we asked for something she seemed inconvenienced. It’s a shame to not give 5 stars to one of our favorite places to dine.

This is such a special place - we were so glad to pop in for a social-distancing lunch with four old friends. Our waiter was just a delight.... from fresh coffee refills and endless fresh iced teas to MULTIPLE take-home containers (thank you!), he provided outstanding service. And WOW on the 1/2 lb. meatballs and sauce, and the same for the Chicken Marsala. No place can top the ambiance of Bucca, and the same goes for the food. Thanks as well to Justin the manager for stopping to say hello and check on our meals. It's so nice to see this landmark restaurant still going strong!

Although a manager fixed our issues, server gave us noticeably dirty plates, didn’t refill drinks often until a manager stepped in and saw that we and others tables weren’t getting proper service. Part of my party ordered the Margherita pizza and when it came out it was really salty to the point that it didn’t taste like anything. Manager replaced it and took it off the bill.

Food is very inconsistent at the Buca location. Service is mediocre, at best. When you charge $25 for a “mixed green salad” and $30 for a pepperoni pizza, prices you should be able to expect good food. Food is hit or miss here, with sub-service, at fine-dining prices. Not coming back

Christmas Eve dinner reservations were at 7:30. Showed up at 7:28 and we waited over an hour to be seated. We got seated at 8:30. When we were seated we did not get greeted or have drinks for over 15 minutes. Ridiculous. Bad management. Our server ended up being good but poor management for Christmas Eve.

We went on Thanksgiving and waited 25 minutes past our reservation time to be seated, which is understandable. We were seated in the bar area. Another server telling his table about a personal experiences was extremely loud. Our appetizer and salad were served and were fine. The Thanksgiving feast was served cold and was not enjoyable. The manager was friendly and explained this was a commercial day and he had gotten other complaints about the cold food. Obviously their bottom line was more important than a quality product.

Worst experience I've ever had. Rude sever, forgot our order and made excuses about our food coming out 30 min late... and we were the only ones in the room all afternoon. Server never even offered bread. Complained to the server who we heard complaining about us to the kitchen staff.
We had a party of 4, so nothing big. Manager addressed the delays and said had dismissed the employee but the employee left. Kept working the bar area in our section. Manager gave a $20 credit but we already had a $20 coupon set to expire so it really was meaningless. Food was great, once it finally came out.

Regional manager called back to apologize and offered to make up to us. Will go back again, but not for a while.

We came here for my daughter’s birthday and we wanted to try a different Italian restaurant. My daughter usually prefers Olive Garden and still does after trying the food. The portions are huge as it is family style but the food was bland. I have been to this chain in other states and the quality of the food was better. The wait staff was friendly and accommodated our large party of 8.

I’m sorry to say but we were disappointed with our meals. The antipasto salad, spaghetti, & chicken parmigiana was bland, could not add enough salt to make them better. Reservations were made to celebrate our 55th anniversary with our grandson & was told they did not show it. We were seated with no delay as they were not busy. No acknowledgment was made by the staff. We have been to Maitland Buca di Beppo numerous times in the last 10 years to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries & family dinners but will think twice before returning.
