Make sure you get their early on Valentine's Day!

A word of caution: Last year I made reservations for my wife and I on Valentine's Day for the special heart-shaped lasagna special for two. When we were seated, I told our server we wanted the Valentine's Day special but he told us they ran out of the heart-shaped lasagna an hour ago. He said they... read more

The food/service are OK. Nothing over the top. It is a kitschy type restaurant a lot of people go to in large parties for B-days/anniversaries/etc. It will be loud'ish when you go. Where to be careful, and can pose a dilemma, is when ordering. Everything is served 'family style'...(aka: paying way too much for way too little) Smaller portions supposed... More

I have found the prices to be incredibly higher than a year ago (when I was there). Our server had a chip on her shoulder all night. I don't know if she was having an off night, but she was terrible. My husband asked for a refill on his water and told the server someone else at our table needed... More

From the bread to the ceasar salad to the pasta dishes (baked ziti and spaghetti)...the food is amazing. Definitely recommend!

Big portions but it didn't taste fresh. I had been wanting to eat fresh pasta. They claim to be authentic but found out that they don't make the pasta right then and there which is what I was hoping for. The meatballs were huge but not great tasting, they were bland. My husband loves meatballs and he didn't finish one.... More

We chose a perfect time for New Years Eve dinner with friends. At 5:15 PM the restaurant had a couple large tables filled with hungry dinners but there was no waiting. Our server was happy and fresh and ready for the busy night. She appeared happy to have a couple tables early. Service was attentive and we did not wait... More

I've gone with groups and on my own and never have trouble figuring out what to order. I'm always glad to bring some food home if we order too much.

For the last 6 years my family has ordered takeout Christmas dinner from. This year my son went to pick up the meal at the time listed on our confirmation. About 30-45 mins later he calls to say the hostess just told him it would be approx. 2 more hours until the order would be ready. I called the restaurant... More

My family and I had Christmas dinner at Buca di Beppo in Maitland, FL. While the food was excellent, it took over two hours to have our salads served and another 45 minutes for the actual food to be served. I cannot fault the waiters as they were continuously apologizing for the terrible service as they mentioned their cooks were... More

I made my reservation using Open Table. We are visiting from Seattle and have no family here. We LOVE the Bucca's at home and eat there at least every three months. Upon arrival, there were a mass of people waiting and expressing their disappointment in the lack of service and wait time. When I "Checked-In" for our reservation we were... More
