Buca di Beppo - Cool Springs Ratings and Reviews

We always enjoy a good meal at Buca di Beppo. We had reservations, and were seated promptly upon arrival. There was a large group (birthday group for an 8 year old girl) near us, so it was pretty "energetic" until they left. I have two children close to that age, so we didn't mind the energy. The appetizer sampler is great, and my kids love the bread. We also enjoyed classics: spaghetti & meatballs and lasagna along with a classic salad. Everything was cooked well. Our server was great, and kept our drinks refilled. I used a coupon, and she recommended joining the e-club for the restaurant which would have saved me even more money (which was correct).

We've always enjoyed dining here for the Italian food. Server seemed kind of new. But was courteous & would go back & forth finding out information he didn't know from manager. Our food came out correct & was very good!

We had several couples join us for dinner one night, each of us received coupons, via email, for $15 off. The only reason why we decided to go to this restaurant was because of these coupons, we have always talked about this restaurant and thought this would be a great opportunity to use our coupons and experience this restaurant for the first time. After spending over $180 because the tickets were not separated per couple we were told we could only use one coupon per table. It would've been nice to know that from the very beginning. For $180 I would've rather gone grocery shopping and made our meal at home. Needless to say, this will be our first and last trip to this restaurant. The food was mediocre at best virtually no taste even the salad didn't taste very good. A huge price for little taste. A big disappointment for sure.

Marginal Italian food at best. Nothing really wrong, but if you can make it better at hoe, why go out. We couldn't get in to our regular Italian restaurant favorite - Molinari"s so we thought we would go here in a pinch. One and done.

We sat at the Popes Table which is the best seat in the house. And Josh was our waiter. He was awesome! Got our drinks and appetizers right out and as we were finishing those our entrees came out. Josh timed it all perfectly and obviously the kitchen workers also did a great job! Thanks Buca for making our Christmas lunch a wonderful experience.

Buca di Beppo has become our favorite place for dinner with my adult children. Especially for Christmas Eve. The food is great & so is the service. I would not recommend it if your looking for a quiet, romantic experience. But it's fun for family.

I take my nieces out every Christmas for dinner. This year the 12 year old picked Buca. I know for a server seeing one adult and four kids has to be a nightmare....not to our server. He was so nice and spoke to each one of the girls as if they were little adults. They loved that. Best service ever of all the years I've been doing this!

Despite having a reservation we were told we'd have to wait up to 30 min which would have been fine had they been busy. We were the only ones waiting as two other parties came in and were told they could be seated early!!! Then we were offered two tables & split up our party. We accepted to be seated and walking through noticed the place was more then half empty. When we complained we were told we didn't have to accept the split tables & could have waited. We were finally seated altogether 45 min after our reservation time. We were comped an appetizer for there error but honestly the experience was ruined. We won't be back.

Had lunch at 1:00 with 4 adults + 2 toddlers. Our waiter, Michael was a champ. Our meals were delicious, and delivered nice and hot. The small ravioli was perfect for 2 to split & have a cannoli after. The large spaghetti and meatballs was perfect for 2 to split now and take home more for later. The cannoli were on point! Just like my Nana's without the fresh grease dripping off the shell. It was a wonderful meal without any glitches, plates and glasses were placed the appropriate distance from the toddlers, their pizza was sliced nicely, and a great time was had by all. Buca remains one of our favorite places to eat.

Nice family style Italian setup, large portions meant for sharing. We ordered two sides and one main.. plenty of food for two. Would have enjoyed a little more veal Marsala, small portion not quite enough for two. Lot of butter, oil.. but good taste and reasonably priced.
Service unfortunately was a disaster this evening. Food arrived but we had no flatware. Wine arrived with single glass after food, was almost done eating before 2nd glass was provided. Friendly though, but missing some basics.

We LOVE Buca! We always order their fried mozzarella and we love the baked Quattro al Forno -and usually order the small size because it is so much food! The Colossal Brownie Sundae will hit the spot if you have a sweet tooth. Mount Vesuvius is also delicious.
We haven't eaten here in a long time and it was so delicious. We have never had a bad server at this restaurant. And of course, Open Table is the way to book at restaurant.
Too bad they are located so far away from our home city....

Great place, and we always love it, but they were slammed Saturday night with a ton of holiday parties, so that we were seated half an hour late. Then one of our dishes took extra long to come out. They comped us that dish, and I felt that they were working somewhat hard to seat us in time; otherwise, I'd have given another star.

The value of the portions is excellent. We ordered the large portion to have left overs. We have sat at the kitchen table 2x now and love the atmosphere but it is a bit warmer. The desserts are amazing so leave room or take it to go. My son's favorite is the double chocolate cake.

We drove from Jackson, Tennessee to celebrate my sons 28th birthday. We have eaten here several times before. As always the food and service was exceptional. You guys never disappoint. Thank you so much for the ice cream treat for his birthday. Great job on the special attention. We will be back soon. Liz Greenway.

Our party of 5 was placed in a room completely separate from everyone else, and no one else was seated in that same room as us for the entire duration of our meal. We ordered 1 appetizer and 2 entrees and it took over 2 hours to receive all of our food. Our waitress rarely stopped by our table (pretty sure she forgot about us since we were alone in that room), was unenthusiastic, and seemed to be very new at waitressing. The meal itself, once it was finally received, was only OK. I felt awful for even suggesting to my group that we go to this restaurant - by the end of the meal we were practically running out the door.

We took my parents for their 52nd wedding anniversary. They put a little sign on the table which was sweet. The waitress was great! She brought extra napkins without being asked which is a plus in my book (mommy of a one-year-old who always needs extra napkins).
