Bread was good. Chicken fettucini alfredo was dry and absolutely bland. Enough salt and pepper made it barely edible.

I had visited the first year it opened and went their with a group. Then it was an excellent experience. This time the portion was sparse and horrible tasting and the place had a very bad odor. It needs updating and a good cleaning.

I wasn't looking forward to eating at this restaurant because I'd eaten at the location in Daytona Beach twice and wasn't impressed. I'm glad I went to this location, because the food was delicious. Great portions of food and everything was tasty. The waiter, Dante, was attentive and even though we were part of a large group (a dozen people)... More

You seldom expect the highest level of service or quality of food on a holiday and this was true during our visit. Twelve of us had a 6 p.m. reservation and we seated promptly and hospitably. Our server was very pleasant and eager to please. Since we were a big group, we all ordered individual appetizers and entrees with the... More

I decided to give Buca another chance, since it has been six years since I last brought my family there. I can say, it will be another six or more years before I return again. Our visit was just after lunch, and they seated the couple behind us first. Then the tour of the kitchen, dirt and trash on the... More

Last year, for Christmas Day, not a lot was open so we ventured to Buca di Beppo. As I had reviewed previously, it was a horrific experience, largely due to the unexpected volume of the day. I was contacted by Corporate, and they seemed genuinely interested in finding out issues and making them right. It has taken some time to... More

We found Buca di Beppo after shopping at the nearby mall. I went to the one in Seattle years ago and so I suggested it to my friend who had never been. Before we were seated we got the walk through tour and brief history of the restaurant and the meaning behind the name. We even got to take a... More

We were both hungry after shopping and as we drove away from the mall, I noticed the Buca di Beppo. Another first time visit. Once inside we were asked if it was our first time and we responded "Yes" They walked us through the restaurant before seating us. Our server was quite nice and promptly brought our drinks. I thought... More

Maybe they still have it together elsewhere, but Jacksonville's Bucca di Beppo is a waste of time and money. The concept is tired, the food is mediocre - though pricey, and they have awful service. In fact, would love to see them close and something worthwhile in that space. On our recent visit it took 1.45 hours for dinner for... More

Last time I went to a Buca di Beppo was in Pennsylvania many years ago and it was a great experience. This was NOT!! First of all, as soon as you walk in, there is a funny odor to the place. I couldn't put a name on what it was but it was a bit offensive. We decided to stay... More
