Absolute worst meal we have ever had at Buca. Third bad experience at this location. Order wasn't correct, food was grossly overcooked. Third strike....we will go back to the Florida Mall location instead.

I would not recommend this place to anyone unfortunately. I belong to a monthly play group and has been our ritual after our Saturday please to go to Buca di Beppo in Maitland. Over the past few months we have seen a decline overall. This past Saturday was the worst yet. All of the dishes on the table were dirty, new dishes that were brought out were still dirty, coffee mugs had old stains going down the side, coffee was lukewarm, there was hair in the Caesar salad, and just an overall bad experience. The management did try to apologize by giving us free appetizers and free dessert but after such a significant screwup at so many levels we were all a bit surprised that we did not have a free meal overall. It literally was one thing after another and we are not an overly picky group but there were dried tomatoes and lettuce stuck to the bottom of the plates And dried food on the front side of plates that were just washed. Very unfortunate because we love this place but I doubt we will be going back anymore after being monthly regulars for the past two years

First time here. They had the air conditioning so cold, it was not a pleasant environment. We asked for it to be turned to warmer temps, but it didn't help much. Prices are very high for what you get I think.

The food was fantastic. A lot more than I could eat at one setting, but great for leftovers. The service couldn't have been any better. That was my second time eating there and I'll be back on the 12th of August for my husbands 70th Birthday. And I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your restaurant to my friends.

Well some food came out burnt and then some cold and we waited almost 50min for food and the food was cold (ravioli). The Server was nice and helped out but not the best performance from this place. I even asked for a special table and they told be no but the table sat empty the whole time.

Jen, our server, was very attentive to all our needs. She was quick to help with replacing one of our entrees that did not taste as well as expected.

The executive chef, John Flaherty, was exceptional. He made us a special dish to make up for the entree (Chicken Marsala) that we had ordered and were not satisfied with. John spent a long time with us to make sure that we were completely satisfied. We will return to this restaurant again, just because of the warm and friendly service we received from the staff and the chef.

We regularly go to Buca karma is a wonderful place with great food, great service and a fun atmosphere. Portions are family style so there's usually enough to take home for later. We've never been disappointed with any of their locations.

Food was great as usual. Very busy as it was Mother's Day so my son's non alcoholic drink was left dry for quite a bit of time. Also took awhile for the food to come out. But again, it was a busy day, we were told that they were running out of things too. We made reservations and got taken right in! Glad we did because people were waiting inside and out.

The food is good, but the prices are high. Restaurant can become quite loud because large parties are easily accommodated. Unfortunately, it often seems that parents of small children think it IS a basement and forget they are at an establishment where others people are also enjoying meals. We were seated in a back room that had a loud, but not overwhelming, atmosphere. One large party left and the noise level dropped substantially. Sadly, before long another large party with out-of-control children was seated in the same place. We had to leave because of the discomfort the children's screaming caused us. This is in no way the restaurant's fault; however, be aware of what to expect.

The food was delicious and reasonably priced for an upscale Italian restaurant. This restaurant is always a favorite for large groups and get togethers. The service was excellent, the selection was wonderful and overall it was a pleasant place to dine. The booths were a little tight and tables just a bit high and there is simply not enough parking.

They serve you family style. The small plates feed about 3 people and run about $19 and up depending on what you get of course. I highly recommend the the apple something salad. Everything we tried was delicious. It is definitely Italian comfort food. It is very cozy inside with old pictures covering every inch of the walls. It is also very cold temperature wise so bring a jacket.

In a word, disappointing. Restaurant wasn't busy but they were understaffed. We had to wait 25 min despite having a reservation. One of the dishes arrived missing an ingredient. The spaghetti was undercooked, not 'al dente' but hard. One of the chicken parm pieces was also undercooked.

Made reservations through open table for 10pm they called me and told me that I needed to come in at 9:15pm because they closed at 10pm so we got there at 8:45pm (early) was not seated until 10pm they were picking up rugs and cleaning tables by the time we were seated then we order a large family plate and told the waiter several times that I couldn't have spice food d/t allergies and the food came out super spicy. They apologized and told us they couldn't make it again because they had ran out of seafood so we had to order another plate. The alfredo sauce was so bland that it literally taste like someone opened a can of alfredo sauce and poured it in our plate I guess the cook got mad at us although it was not our fault. Horrible way to have New Year's Eve diner completely ruined our special event. Never again
