What a great family place, and a place for a celebration. The menu can accommodate large group portions. It's nice to get a few dishes so you can sample. The decor is great. You won't get bored waiting for your meal because there are so many great old photos and kitschy things hanging from the wall. There are also many... More

Had never heard of this chain so we gave it a try. Friday lunch. We called in advance to see if they have a gluten free menu . My better half is gluten sensitive. They said they do so we gave it a shot. There is no shortage of restaurants in the Nashville area and we like to try new... More

First time at this restaurant, first time I ever heard of it or even noticed it was when we stopped in on a whim Saturday evening. There were only 3 of us. Two adults, 1 child. It was expensive for 2 adults- it's probably better if you go with a party but this style of family style eating makes no... More

We had great service and food. A little pricey but not bad. You can always find a coupon online and show staff. As long as you can get a code, they will honor it. We always eat family style when we go.

In the past few months I've visited Buca with friends, family and work associates. The atmosphere is great...tons of interesting pictures on the walls if you have to wait. Reservations...you can make reservations here or call ahead. If you are in a small group I suggest reserving the kitchen table (I would not recommend this area for kiddos though as... More

I must first admit we are spoiled by living in New Orleans. All of the Italian restaurants we eat at have been family owned for many generations. With that said, this chain is good. We wanted a decent meal at a decent price and we got that. The red sauce was a little tinny, but everything had a good taste.... More

First time at a Buca. Food was good, the manager showed us around the restaurant and showed us how to order. The serving are HUGE, especially the kids size. Our 2 year old had leftovers for three days, after eating here. Our waiter was okay, but that's ordinarily how it goes for chain restaurants.

Great ambiante for those who have nostalgia for Italy, food ok and good professionalism of its employees. Maybe the pasta overcooked .............

Some may get sticker-shock when they see the prices, but keep in mind that most small items feed 3+ people. My party of four got a large salad and a small pasta entree. We finished all of both, and no one left hungry! There is also a table in the kitchen too, though I have not yet asked to be... More

I've eaten at Buca di Beppo in Franklin a couple of times while on vacation, since we don't have the chain locally. I thoroughly enjoy it, and love the family-style concept. It's a chain, so of course it's not going to have the "mom and pop" feel, but it's great nonetheless. In the two times we eaten there, we've never... More
