  • "We had 7 of us for my sons pre-school graduation dinner and it was wonderful! My son who is just about 5 loved it! He loved his light up cup, pizza and the best is when they came to sing to him with the candelabra to blow out the candles! Our waitress was AMAZING!"

  • "This restaurant is great for large parties. I held my college graduation party here, and Bucca was very accommodating. They were able to move our reservation up, they had all of our food ready since we called ahead, and they were very attentive to our multiple guests while maintaining a genuine smile. I would defiantly recommend to a friend. "

  • "WE WENT AFTER MY SONS GRADUATION. PLENTY OF FOOD AND VERY GOOD!! i WOULD ABSOLUTLY RECOMMEND IT!!"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "We always enjoy going to Buca. Restaurant was crowded, so we had to sit in the bar area, but overall a great experience. We found that the small salad + small spaghetti were perfect for three people."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I had a fabulous dining experience at Buccas. It was a special occasion and they even prepared a whole cake/personalized and all...for our table! The food, service, ambience is so nice..very cozy, comfy. I work 50hrs a week or so, & I hate to go out because I'm tired and just want to be home & relax. The night was effortless... Wine in one hand..good food in another, with a friend or two:) It was really nice. I highly recommend the place. "

  • "Twice we has to ask our waitress to replace the utensils and dishes we were given because they were dirty. A restaurant can't recover from that in my book. Portions were large but mediocre. Do not recommend-- there are too many better options in the area, don't settle for this."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "I have never had a bad experience at any of the restaurants within this chain. My wife and I love to come here by ourselves and often have family get together’s here because of the food, friendly people and large seating areas. It’s very homey which is another reason we pick this restaurant. When we have a large get together, we request the "pope" room which has great acoustics and is fun spinning the pope around."

  • "Buca Di Peppo is the best Italian Restaurant in the Lehigh Valley! Do not go to Olive Garden across the street! "
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "The staff at Buca is very energetic, the atmopshere is kid friendly and the menu has many of the traditional italian foods plus more. This was my second time dining here and I always plan to go back. It's family style so it's better and more cost effective to dine with a group. You can celebrate any special occassion and my girlfriend just booked her birthday dinner in the party room in advance, after we ate. They take you through a tour of the kitchen and the restaurant before you are seated while they explain how the restautrant is run. I recommend eating at Buca."

  • "We reserved the Pope Table for our party in celebration of our son's Confirmation. They were able to accommodate our large group with ease. The service was absolutely outstanding and the food was delicious. The atmosphere was appropriate and the staff went out of their way to make our special occasion extra special. Thank You!"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "My wife and I always ask for and get the same table we want each time we visit...in the lovely little wine room...the ceiling is a grape arbor laden with hundreds of wine bottles. There is always Italian music playing, romantic and/or pop. The food is delicious and we ALWAYS end up taking something home. The desserts are monstrously good and " built for two". The service is attentive and helpful and always friendly. There are always coupons in the newspaper and through the email connection we've made and we use them frequently. All in all, we recommend Buca di Beppo for lunch and dinner. Mangia! ps you can't beat Buca's marinara sauce and meat gravies!"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "For the price and amount of food I wouldn't classify it as any better than an Olive Garden(which is extremely less expensive). They looked understaffed and there was the appearance of confusion among the waitstaff as to where the food was to be delivered. I probably won't take the family back, but that shouldn't stop you from giving them a try. It could have been an off day. I just can't afford to take that risk for $100+ to feed three children and my wife and I."

  • "We always ask to sit at the kitchen table, and it is a treat to do so. We see the food being prepared, chat with the staff sometimes, and get to see what some of the other dishes look like."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "We love going to Buca, we know the food will be spot on, and there will be lots of conversation and laughter. This time we went for my son's 15th birthday and we sat at the kitchen table. We were not disappointed and had a great time. Thank you for all you do."

  • "We had requested a quieter table for my autistic daughter and the staff did alot to oblige us even on a busy saturday night. They even moved us from a table they had set up at the bar to another table. We had a great time."

  • "Our group of 4 included my 85 year old MIL who wears hearing aids, our table was in the Wine Room (right off of the kitchen) it was EXTREMELY loud....my MIL had to turn her hearing aids off because of the back ground noise and therefore could not hear the family conversation..This noise bothered all four of use...."

  • "It was cold and the service wasn't good. It was not a good experience will not be back ."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "We have eaten here many times and enjoyed ourselves. This trip seemed to be an off night. The food service was EXTREMELY slow. It took an hour to get our salad. Our dinners took the same. The waitress apologized many times, but a manager never came to our table. The food was good, but it was a disappointing visit."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "The family style dinner was just what we wanted for our birthday celebration for my wife's 60th. The server recommended some entries for us and checked back with us many times to make sure we were enjoying our dinner. The food was very good and we had enough to take home. Would recommend Buca di Beppo for small and large groups."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "I think the "B Team" was working on Christmas. My pasta wasn't cooked through (and no, it wasn't al dente, which is how I normally cook my pasta). It was actually white and uncooked inside the noodles when I took a bite. The waiter was attentive and took ti off the bill promptly, when we told him. No complaints regarding service at all. My husband's chicken dish was tasty. We shared it, and we had plenty to eat, even without the pasta. One data point doesn't make a line - I'll try Buca di Beppo again, and see what happens."
