Do not eat at this place because the food is just okay and the service is horrible. I planned a Thanks Giving dinner here for my Mom and I. She is in town from Boston and I wanted her to have a no worries dinner with no clean up. I made reservations for 6:45 pm a week in advance. I... More

I called Thanksgiving day about 11:00am after reading about the wonderful four course thanksgiving feast that they were serving, to make my reservation for 8:45pm. I arrived at 8:40 and upon entering the lobby the hostess informed me they didnt have any Thanksgiving dinners left. According to their website they were supposed to have the thanksgiviing meals through Friday. I... More

I love the food and service at Bucca di Beppo. The atmosphere is a little loud so be prepared. We ate in the bar area this time which has more foot traffic. I would rather eat in another dinning area going forward.

We had left Carowinds while on the motorcycle and seen this place. My significant said she had heard the food was authentic and good. They originally told us a 30 min wait. So we went to the bar. Upon going to the bathroom we seen many empty tables. The cheese bread was fantabulous. However it took forever on our food.... More

We met a number of friends here. Our waiter was new so the service was a little haphazard though enthusiastic. The meals are served family style, either large portions (serves 5) or small portions (serves 3). We had the fried calamari (not overly breaded,tasty), eggplant parmigiana (tender though I prefer the skin off the eggplant), spicy rigatoni with chicken (not... More

Decided to give Buca a try with the family. The wait staff was helpful and friendly. The portions were nice sized as advertised but the quality of food was not at the level we were expecting based on other reviews. I would compare this food to more of institutional food versus home cooked Italian. If you are looking for finer... More

As a small business owner (5 employees plus spouses), Buca has always been a top choice, it is family style "peasant" Italian, and the place is always buzzing, so if we get a little LOUD, no one seems to notice.

Very good food and good service. We had the spaghetti (small portion), and it was a good amount for 2 people. Wasn't a big fan of the bread. It wasn't warm, and I didn't like the oil that you dipped it in. I asked for butter. The prices are a little high. I would recommend this restaurant for large parties,... More
