We just love this restaurant! Every time you go it's like being there for the first time because there are so many different themed rooms. The food is always fantastic italian dishes and the service is top notch. It is a little pricey but the portions I think make up for that. The desserts are awesome!! Just writing this is... More

Our dinner was very good. We had a family dinner for 7 including 3 young children. They were happy, so we were happy. So much food, we'd recommend the chicken saltimboca and veal saltimboca. Bruschetta was very good also. The only miss was the server correcting the pronunciation of bruschetta in a condescending way, (he has to realize different parts... More

Pure italian restaurant. Had a big party for a graduation celebration and enjoyed every minute. Waiter was very helpful in choosing entrees. Ended up not being enough food so we ordered a pizza to add which worked out great. The food was very good, desserts were the best! We got the sampler dessert tray plus a tray of cannolis. The...

All I have to say the food is great, hot and authentic italian. Service is very good, and the portions are huge. I drive 25 miles away once every other month to have a nice dinner.

This restaurant has some of the best Italian food I've ever tried in my life! I traveled with the Bob Jones Band on the Outback Bowl trip in December 2013, and I know most of my friends enjoyed it too! Now for the artwork... very inappropriate for the little ones, but still very amusing. Can't wait to return!

This is our third time dining at this Buca di Beppo. Our daughter and son-in-law love it. The food is delicious and we always have leftovers. Our waitress was very sweet to our 21/2 year old grandson, providing him with extra drawing materials. On our way out we purchased gift certificates for family living in the Brandon area. They were... More

I haven't been to a Buca's in years and I was somewhat disappointed. Their garlic bread which used to be very strong with big slices of garlic is now just average. The service and food are good but it's overpriced. You can get Italian food that's just as good for less. The ambiance is still fun so I'd recommend it... More

We love Italian food and I planned a birthday dinner here for 14 people. This was booked weeks in advance. I even brought a cake by the restaurant at 11 that morning. When we got there for our reservation they had us set up at a table that was a few seats short. We tried to cram into this table... More

Buca is the best Italian restaurant around. Great food choices, great atmosphere, great service. Love this place, go there often. Fantastic Thanksgiving meal with plenty of food left over to enjoy at home.

My wife and I, with a 2 year old, went there for lunch. Food is OK but lunch portion is very small. Our daughter did like its cheese pizza. The worst part is $4.99 for pre-meal bread. The waitress didn't even mention the bread charge when we place the order. It is not listed on menu either. Feel fooled. Over... More
