“Food was good”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

First time at a Buca. Food was good, the manager showed us around the restaurant and showed us how to order. The serving are HUGE, especially the kids size. Our 2 year old had leftovers for three days, after eating here.

Our waiter was okay, but that's ordinarily how it goes for chain restaurants.

“Scent of Italy”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Great ambiante for those who have nostalgia for Italy, food ok and good professionalism of its employees. Maybe the pasta overcooked .............

“Family-Style dining at it's best!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Some may get sticker-shock when they see the prices, but keep in mind that most small items feed 3+ people. My party of four got a large salad and a small pasta entree. We finished all of both, and no one left hungry! There is also a table in the kitchen too, though I have not yet asked to be seated there.

“Excellent for a chain, love family-style”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

I've eaten at Buca di Beppo in Franklin a couple of times while on vacation, since we don't have the chain locally. I thoroughly enjoy it, and love the family-style concept.

It's a chain, so of course it's not going to have the "mom and pop" feel, but it's great nonetheless. In the two times we eaten there, we've never had a bad experience.

The only negative (and it's a small one): when guests enter, they're taken through "kitchen" area. When leaving, it's very confusing (and almost maze-like) to exit. My husband almost walked into an employee-only area (oops, haha!).

“Good Family Restaurant”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Great for large families. Large shareable portions and the chicken carbanara is excellent! Parking is tight if lot is full they still probably have seating available, cool atmosphere as well.
