The staff was friendly. But just wanted simple meat sauce on gluten free pasta. They were unable to provide.

So I ate here twice and it was wonderful both times. Having said that the attention to detail with the staff was wonderful. I have to give a shout out to Zeke he was my waiter the first night. On the second night it looked like he was working the kitchen, however when my meal came out he quickly noticed that it was not gluten free and had it sent back to the kitchen for a new one. His quick thinking and attention to detail is greatly appreciated and most likely had me avoid a very unpleasant evening. Thanks again man I appreciate it. These are the kind of people that should be in a restaurant, always looking out for the interests of the customer. Nothing bad against the other waiter, however attention-to-detail with food allergies cannot just be important customer service but also life-saving. Hope to visit again someday.

I felt unsafe off the bat, so I only ordered a glass if water. I was hardcore sick for a week. Everyone else loved the restaurant, but they are certainly not celiac safe.

Stayed at Bally's in AC and found out from the bartender about Buca having GF options. We went to look at the menu and they have a special GF menu. Waiter was really nice and knowledgeable. Meals are family style and feed 2-3 people so it is a lot of food. Very happy!

Thankfully I called before going. The gentleman that answered the phone had absolutely no clue if they even had anything gluten free. Then said will I'm sure there's something. No thank you not taking my chances.

Limited gluten free menu, which includes a cross-contaminated warning.

Great food, family style only! So if your whole party doesn't want chicken and green beans I suggest choosing somewhere else. They do not have any carb choices that are gluten free.

Came here for a party not celiac safe and at first wouldn’t let me bring outside food so I could eat with everyone else.

No gluten free pasta and very limited options. Very disappointed. The risotto was good though.

Very few gluten free options, no gluten free pasta, or bread alternatives of any kind. They have a small gluten free menu that is safe from cross contamination but is usually just a regular dish with something removed and not replaced.

There’s almost nothing in this menu that’s gluten free. They list bruschetta and in parentheses say ‘request no crostini’, so basically you pay an appetizer price for chopped tomatoes? No thanks. No gluten free bread or pasta and all GF menu items are regular menu items with something removed but not replaced, rendering them unappetizing.

No real gf options... mostly vegetables. No pizza, pasta, etc. Very disappointing for a modern chain when there are so many options that are better.

How this location is certified GF is beyond me. They are careless and inattentive to the needs of GF and Celiac. After reminding them several times that we needed two items prepared GF, and after they stated both were prepared GF, the Celiac attendee got very sick two hours after dinner, and closer examination of leftovers showed one item was coated with flour. Beware.

I love Buca di beppo since my family is pretty big and family style is a fun way for them to eat. with my celiac disease I, of course, don't share with them but I can always find something tasty to eat here. I always get the Apple salad which is delicious and very gf. for my main course i order 2 appetizers, the sausage and peppers and mashed potatoes, and they never disappoint. I have eaten and catered from here numerous times and I have never gotten sick and it never disappoints. I would definitely recommend as another Italian option if your family is tired of olive garden ;) very tasty and gf friendly.

Just called them and they do have procedures in place to respond to gluten (and any declared allergy) to prevent ingredients and risk of cross contact (clean pan, utensils and counters). They do not have gluten free pasta.

Salad with no dressing is not a GF option.

Asked for gluten free pasta, which they said they had, and was given while wheat. When I told them WW was NOT gluten free they had nothing for me to eat.

I've eaten here every week for the last 2 years(we have a weekly networking meeting here). They are knowledgeable and helpful. They do have an entire gluten free menu with several good options. Personal favorite is the chicken saltiboca, it's very good. They have two salads that are good as well.

I was at Buca for a rehearsal dinner with family. I was served my meal and was thankful to have my food at the same time as my family and it looked good too. However, after eating half my food I found a piece of pasta on my plate under the vegetables. The manager & the waiter had no explanation as to how it happened, I felt no security in my own health safety eating anything there that evening. So be forwarned if you go to Buca .....

There were not many options on the very large menu. There was also no pasta options. The items were not marked and the wait staff was not very knowledgeable.

Actually offered whole wheat pasta when I asked for Gluten Free menu.. Limited selection and you have to ask that the items on the GF menu not be dusted with flour.. Hope I'm ok after eating here..

Has a GF menu but the staff is extremely ignorant, and I was glutened through cross contamination. No GF pasta or pizza, their options are salad and dry flavorless fish. The food is DISGUSTING, cheap and a far cry from actual Italian. American slop that will make you sick. Avoid at all costs!!! 😝

Excellent gluten free service. I asked The serving assistant if they had gluten free bread and he brought me some twice and my own dipping sauce. When I ordered the gluten free pizza, the server asked if I had an allergy and said he would take care of everything. The pizza is amazing and was served on a tin tray without being cut as I was informed cutting the pizza would risk contamination. Overall I was very impressed and can't wait to come back.

If you come here, the food portions are huge. I ordered Chicken Limone and they made it without the flour. Mashed potatoes are GF. They are very accommodating but make sure you tell small or lunch portions. The chicken was chewy and food did not have much flavor.

food was good but not impressed that for an Italian restaurant that's "gluten free friendly" no gf pasta options. seemed very plain.

This is an Italian restaurant and they are NOT gluten free. You ask for GF stuff, and they give you a salad. Yeah, I can get that anywhere. No GF menu at all. Avoid this place if you have to have GF.

They tried to accommodate, but I was still quite bloated after ordering off the gluten free menu.

They do have a gluten free menu, but admit they use a common preparation area and the choices are limited to several chicken and break dishes and various salads. No gluten free pasta available. I had chicken marsala and it was fine, but not enough to add this restaurant to my go-to places.

This place sucks! We were a group of 12. Why do they cram everyone into a loooonng table, instead of doing 2 tables of 6??! It would make it so much easier for us to talk to each other. and also make it easier to serve the tables.. it's overpriced for the quality of food...My parents came for Thanksgiving, and they got one plated dinner for $57. a person! !! Not even a buffet!! Service is so-so. I'm so done with this joint.

What they have is delicious. The problem is that they don't have much, and I got sick. I specifically told them I needed it made gf and supposedly I got that, but something must have cross-contaminated. They have Salads with gf dressing, most of their vegetables sides are gf, a couple chicken and a couple salmon entrees, but no pasta!

I spoke with a chef before ordering and he was able to provide some recommendations. There were only a few options. This restaurant does not advertise gluten free. I have Celiac's, and I did not get sick after the meal. Really good food, I would go back again.

If I could give this place no stars I would!!! Everyone is enjoying pasta dishes and yummy bread and your options are not nearly as appealing!!! Do your gluten free friends a favor and pick a different place😁

Hubby thought we might try a new Italian restaurant ... Gluten free menu, check! No pasta, no way! Basically it's Chicken Marsala, sausage, or potatoes... Not impressed and very disappointed. Agree with other reviewer ... Cool atmosphere, but defiantly not an enjoyable experience for a Celiacs customer.

We were travelling and stopped here after finding it on this app. I assumed they would have gf pizza or pasta but that was not the case. Separate menu was a list of menu options with directions like "request no bread." nothing for kids, we decided to go to a different restaurant (Glory Days - which was great!).

Don't go here for gluten free unless you have to. The options are slim and, when I went there, the staff didn't care about my "allergy."

They have a gf menu, but the server wasn't so knowledgeable about what gf means. The AC didn't seem to be working, so it was quite hot. An overall unpleasant experience. Be sure to order sides with the meal.

Bucca really needs to up their GF game, they don't have any GF bread or pastas, so if you eat here it's salad, a few entrées (chicken, salmon, veal) and that's it. Really disappointed.
