they'll walk you through the kitchen on the way to your table. Very clean kitchen. Interesting memorabilia in every room. Each room has a theme. Food was excellent. There are $10 off coupons in paper, internet, and flyers all the time to help offset price.

We had a family group of 8 in late November and we have been there on numerous occasions in the past.

The reservation was kept timely and our server took very good care of us even though he probably had more tables to tend to than he should have.

The food is your basic Buca di Beppo. Enormous portions and plenty to take home for dinner tomorrow.

Through the few years they have been here now (thinking it is six years) they have run an enormous amount of business through the place, and it is starting to show. No, scratch that, it's time for major refurbishing.

The first investment I suggest this management group make is to completely replace all of your table service. It's worn out. You got your use out of it,now it's time to get something new.

Since I just pilloried another restaurant that is in the same mall about filthy table service; I want to point out that this place may bring you water spotted table service and sometimes a plate may even still be wet from the dishwasher. But never have they brought me anything dirty.

I suspect their traffic may be one of the highest in all of Southpark Mall and when you take that into account they only need to refurbish/replace. They don't need a spanking or a visit from the Board of Health.

Give it a tweak Buca and I believe you will do fine for years to come.

I remember going to Buca di Beppo a long time ago and really enjoying the food, the service, etc... For the past 3 to 5 years I've really noticed it go down hill. We went there 2 times in the last three years and our experience was horrible. They were out of everything and it was so slow.

Not particularly memorable but you can't expect much from a chain restaurant except that you will get a standarized menu.
