My family and I went here for Mother's Day. We made a reservation in advance as it was very busy that day. We were seated fairly quickly. The five of us ordered mozzarella bread, a small fettuccine Alfredo, and a small chicken Parmesan. We also got complementary bread with our meal. Everything was very good and the appropriate temperature. All... More

Very enjoyable experience, especially when you do not really expect much: Fried calamari were cooked perfectly and the marinara-type sauce was very tasty. The mild and spicy sausages were tasty, but would not bother to order again. The salad and the salad dressing were excellent: the greens were fresh and crisp and the dressing was soooo good we all (4... More

Have been to this restaurant in the past and enjoyed it, but yesterday was not as good. Made a reservation and was seated with a lot of screaming and running around kids. No one approached them since the kids were running around and hot platters were being served. After they left the rest of the large families were fine. We... More

As wonderful of a review I gave the last restaurant, Prato in Winter Park, this one is on the other end of the spectrum. I swore off Buca di Beppo a couple of years back because of 3 poor experiences in a row but decided to give them another chance as they are close to my home. BAD idea. I... More

Overall, I'd say that it was a fun atmosphere and the staff was very friendly Lasagna was a huge portion but just ok/average. It was made to share which 4 of us did and still had a take home portion. Caesar salad was very good and raspberry cheesecake was excellent. Watch staff friendly and efficient. We will go back to... More

Last Saturday night, we took some friends to Buca who had never been before for a joint celebration of our recent wedding anniversaries. My wife and I had been several times in the past and for the most part we have enjoyed our experiences over the years.

It is set up to encourage large "family" groups with seating and the menu. I strongly encourage taking a $10 off local coupon or signing up for email club for an offer two days before you go to allow time to receive email. Food was good but is pricy per person. Our service was good. The 10+ group next to... More
