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.

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

Great for large families. Large shareable portions and the chicken carbanara is excellent! Parking is tight if lot is full they still probably have seating available, cool atmosphere as well.

Buca is a chain Italian restaurant which guarantees a fun evening. Food is good in huge portions, so be careful that you don't over order. We have always enjoyed our meals there.

Spent Christmas Day here; made reservations about 3 1/2 weeks before and still had about a 25 minute wait for our table. Once we were seated, it was obvious our server did NOT want to be working that day. She wasn't quite rude, but she wasn't attentive, never smiled, seemed like we were ruining her day... ok, she was a... More
