Went with a group of friends but didn't realize you had to order entrees for two or more. We decided on three expecting large portions but it was barely enough for us. The veal wasn't very tender, pasta was ok, chicken was the best. It would have been better having individual entrees since we all wanted something different. After seeing... More

This was the fifth or sixth time we have been to Buca di Beppo in Maitland and frankly we were disappointed by the calamari that somehow were not as good as in all previous occasions and the mixed salad dressing was somewhat too strong and not as pleasant as in the previous occasions. The server was not at her best... More

Celebrated a birthday get together there with a group of 3. This place might be OK if you have a large group and you want to share a number of items on the menu but for small groups and couples I would never go here. The menu was extensive, the food mediocre and the service was a bit spotty.

Service was not great, just ok.. but the food is terrible, taste is very poor !! lasagna was simple with chunks of hard ball meat on it, no cheese what so ever, just the layer on top. The sizes are smaller compare to before. Desert had shrunk on size-flavor as equal as the meals ...bad... use to be my favor... More

It is Friday night and all is still quiet at Buca di Beppo. Scott was our server and was not extremely pleasant until after we were done with our meal and we started to talk about what he is really passionate about - good food. Past that and back to our meal, we ordered the calamari. The first time it... More

The other servers also stopped by our table to make sure we were not in need of anything and everyone asked if we had been there before... More

I like going with a group so we can share the family sized portions. And it's always good to being some home. The food is tasty and the service is good.
