My husband and I were in Jacksonville visiting family. They insisted we try Buca! As we were given the tour I took notice to the Chef's table and immediately asked about it. Since the table was unoccupied they offered to let us enjoy dinner in the kitchen. My seven year old daughter absolutely loved the conversations with the kitchen staff... More

First off, we were there on Christmas Eve. Quite busy, right? Well if your a restaurant manager, you should have enough staff to accommodate the guests. We had reservations and were seated within 10 minutes. From then on, the service was quite slow. The servers were running around like crazy. Bread was finally delivered to our table, and I will...

Business was slow in the restaurant, but it took the hostess a very long time to seat us. However, the food was great as usual, and our server 'Ryan' was most gracious and efficient. You can't go wrong at Buca di Beppo! Great food, spiced moderately and cooked perfectly. I would have given 5 stars if the hostess was on... More

We were here on October 26th for our anniversary and we were at a painting event. We loved the service and the meatballs were to die for . Literally just like Grandmas and I'm italian. We will surely return. Portion sizes a tad small on the apps for an italian restaurant. I don't mind though ;)

We always enjoy eating at Buca for the fresh bread, flavors and sauces. The new entrée, sausage and peppers, tastes great.

Disappointed, again. :( Came here for paint night, that was fun. We had a large antipasto. It was 23.99. Lots of fresh lettuce. A few (10) olives and some bits of salami and cheese. 24 bucks is a lot to spend on pure rabbit food! We also had chicken and garlic bread. This was very good, but pricey. There was... More

We like this chain of restaurants and this one is top notch. There is no Buca near where we live, so whenever we are near one, we stop in. I personally love the Pomodora sauce over Rigatoni and I add a lot of Olive oil over it. Dunk the great bread into the sauce along with eating the pasta and... More

We have been many times for famiy birthday parties and work events and each time I am left disappointed in the service and quality of the food. While the atmosphere is fun and unique, the food leaves much more to be desired.
