“Mall Business Lunch - very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

Had a quick lunch at Buca today and I was quite impressed. Had an Italian soda, a HUGE meatball and some cheese raviolis. I grew up in a northeast Italian family... so I know what good pasta (and sauce) SHOULD taste like... and Buca was RIGHT on.

Food was well priced, came out fast, FULL of southern Italian flavors (garlic, basic, fresh tomatoes), and some solid service.

Overall great restaurant - much better then I would think you could get in a mall location.

Just be warned... the meatballs... ARE HUGE!

Great service, wonderful salad, fabulous food and plenty of it. We had a party of 10 and no reservations. The staff treated us like we were the only ones in the place.

“Don't be put off that it's a chain restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

The first time I went to Beppo's was in Philadelphia and we thought we'd found something amazing.

When we then "found" it again in Florida Mall I was so happy that it was there, and so gutted it was a chain place. Chain places tend to make you fear the quality, especially then if it's in a mall. Shouldn't worry though, and if it does all comes out of a can it's a very nice can.

Food is superb. Portions are amazing, and prices are very, very low. We tend to go here on the last day of our holiday, the mall is on the way to the airport, and before the horror of airline food this makes a fine last meal.
