Diner Reviews
  • "food - meh, service - meh, atmosphere -meh-...might be great for some groups but for a person like me that prefers something a little more intimate then this ain't the place. Also, I had to email earlier to get the national info that *should* be openly posted on their website and does not appear to be - and no wonder..the calorie counts are out of this world. "

  • "The food was amazing and it ended up being worth the wait!"

  • "Took a group for which Buca is inviting. I thought the food wasn't quite as good as in the past. Lasagna was rather dry. Prosciutto wrapped chicken had a lot of marinara sauce. Chopped salad was too heavily dresses. Portions continue to be more than ample and family style is fun way to taste a variety of items. Server was attentive. As w many chains the food is not high quality but more about a lively atmosphere and a lot of food."

  • "We had 8 in our party, 4 of which were kids. We were celebrating a birthday & were seated in the Pope room. What a great experience to have privacy in our own room. Food was great. Only problem was it took so long to get our food & with 4 hungry kids in our party, the wait made conditions tough. Good service, very accommodating server. A little forgetful... forgot we asked for cucumbers on the side so had to take salad back & it prolonged the wait for salad; did not make our olive oil / balsamic mix fo bread."

  • "As the evening progressed, the room temperature was a bit to warm. The noise level was quite high, but our party enjoyed the meal and service."

  • "Everything was great but the table. We wanted a table and was put in a booth. When online reservations were completed that was not a selection to indicate. We could not be accommodated so a booth is where we sat."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "After reserving this table and specifically asking for the kitchen table, we were denied it. The management, servers, and hostesses were all at a loss as to why my request was not accommodated. Oh well, food was good otherwise."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The food was disappointing in general. One of the three dishes we ordered was good; the other two, pretty mediocore. There was not enough seasoning and the one "macaroni & cheese" dish had no cheese to speak of. The salad as really the best dish we had. The food was not served hot, only warm. I wouldn't return, as the price of the food versus the quality of the food exhibited a severe disconnect for me."

  • "Buca's is one of my favorite places to go to about twice a year. It has the perfect blend of classy, fun, romantic, and humorous dinning experience. The food has always been top notch and the deserts are some of the best in town. Plan on dropping $100 for dinner for two, but also plan on having excellent leftovers for dinner or lunch the next day, the portions are enormous. One entrée will feed 2-3 people depending on your appetite and the dish ordered. I love Buca's!"

  • "If you are looking for a fun, high energy dining experience to celebrate a special occasion or just enjoy a group of friends, family, or colleagues, this is a great place to go. Impossible not to feel in a celebratory mood here. It's noisy and there's always a lot going on, not to mention so much to look at with the amazing decor packed with old photos and other "artifacts". Two of you can appreciate it also, just be aware that dining is family style so a single order is a lot of food and you'll need to order accordingly. The food is homey and tastes good, though not what I'd label "gourmet". Service I've experienced has always been super friendly and excellent."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Food, as usual, was excellent. Service was good, but they still need to pay a little more attention to empty glasses, especially for the kids. Service very good. Took a little while for the food to be brought out."

  • "Very unfortunate experience at a chain my wife and I used to enjoy very much. Just last February we went to a location in Las Vegas and it was a totally different experience. The restaurant was crowded but not full, yet the service was very slow. We ordered spaghetti with meatballs and an order of garlic bread. The food took a long time to arrive and when it did the flavor was left in the kitchen. The pasta was dry, barely any sauce and the meatballs had no flavor whatsoever. We were so disappointed that we did not order any dessert. The kitchen needs help."

  • "We felt less than special on Jan 5, 2014. My husband picked Buca for his special bday dinner. Although the food was good, we walked out feeling left out. All night we heard bday songs sung at different tables. Thinking our waitress would make sure we got this special recognition (and she knew it was my husband bday),nothing happened except our bill. This was disappointing and made us question if we would ever pick Buca again."

  • "When I lived in Los Angeles I would often go to Buca di Beppo and really enjoyed it. I found on my last visit that the prices had gone up considerably and the portions a little bit smaller. I will still go there for a special occasion, as the food is still good, but will not go as often as I did before."

  • "We met friends from out of town and had reserved the kitchen table. What fun! We all enjoyed seeing the plates of delicious food pass by, and got plenty of ideas about what to order next time. All of the staff was great, and we look forward to our next visit."

  • "Although I understand this restaurant not offering Military Discount - it appears the younger generation who work at your restaurant does not fully appreciate the military. When I ask if a Military Discount is offered at this restaurant, the replied I got was "NO, SORRY, you must write to the President of Bucca de Peppo". I would rather accept an answer such as "I'm sorry, we don't offer Military Discount here, however, Thank you or I appreciate your service". We don't often eat at Bucca de Peppo because it is pricy, however, it is a treat for us to eat there every once in a while. The fact that it was opened on Christmas Day was beneficial for a lot of families. We had a fun time eating our Christmas Dinner at your restaurant."

  • "We have eaten here twice before and had perfectly good food. This past visit assured me we won't return. Our entree order was forgotten and when it arrived well after all our other food, it was overcooked, dry and inedible. The manager was gracious enough to remove the dish from out tab but we won't be going back."

  • "My family and I thank you for the wonderful experience you showed us. I definitely will talk about the experience we had at Buca's. Once again, thank you and may God bless you all."
