Last year 14 of us, adults, elderly and kids had a very nice Christmas Eve dinner. It was busy but at least we did get to eat. We went back this year with a reservation for 5:30 tonight and it was a nightmare. We were served appetizers and drinks, then placed our order. After 45 minutes we ordered more drinks... More

Went here with a group of ladies. We decided to go with the group menu and we had a variety of dishes. The food was delicious. Service was excellent. Food is family style, so there is plenty to share. We had bread, salad, chicken parmigiana, spaghetti with marinara sauce, pasta with alfredo sauce, and chocolate cake for dessert. The total...

Buca di Beppo Coral Springs is the only location of this chain I have been to eat. The red and white check table cloth's describe the decor. We got a taste of the ambiance walking to our table through the kitchen. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The restaurant was clean, and the menu good. We had ice tea, house... More

They take you through the kitchen on the way to your seat, don't care since I've seen kitchens before. Food is nothing special, just standard industrial Italian fare. Not a real favor of family style serving (everyone eats the same thing and served out of a big bowl or platter). It it's your thing then it's okay but all in... More

Went here for first time yesterday evening for a family's 60th birthday. It all started when we were being rushed through the kitchen by a pushy waiter that was behind us. After seating, the only thing worse than the service was the management. To start, we never received our Garlic bread and was told that the printer made an error... More

Went for dinner. Ordered Chicken Marsala. Sauce was very dark in color and tasted sweet. We didn't say anything to the the other people at our table. As the food made it around the table, others stated how sweet the marsala was. One said it tasted like it was sweetened with pancake syrup. We've tried this place a few years... More

Worst, most tasteless and bland Italian food I have had in years. The wait staff and atmoshere are nice, and the portion sizes are great (very large) for the price, but it's like they are afraid to use any seasonings in their food. If you want good Italian food in the area, try Sal's or Ciro's instead for some good... More
