Diner Reviews
  • "The food tasted very can and jar prepared. It lacked the spices and flavor or an Italian restaurant and more tasted like what a college kid makes in his dorm. It was edible, but indefinitely wouldn't order spaghetti and meat balls or Alfredo again. The salads were very good as was the bread, just our main courses were disappointing. Our waiter was outstanding and the atmosphere was a lot of fun! They sat our party of 15 right away which was outstanding!"

  • "We took a couple to celebrate both birthdays and couldn't of had a better time. Our waiter Jason was remarkable and loveable. The food was outstanding. Can't wait to go back."

  • "Upon being seated, I immediately asked the server if GF pasta was available and was told *YES* there was. Based that information, I calculated the carbohydrates, and administered insulin to my 11 year old daughter (who wears an insulin pump to manage Type 1 Diabetes and also has Celiac Disease). While we were waiting for the server to return, a manager walked through (we were seated at the Kitchen Table), and we asked what type of gluten-free pasta to expect. That's when we were told it wasn't offered at all. So...I basically overdosed my child with a medication that can kill her because we were given the wrong information by the server. Our bill was $100 and the meal was less than satisfying. Not impressed."

  • "Greens in the salad were not of high quality and did not appear fresh."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "The food came out separately instead of all at once. The linguini and clams was sweet (not a good thing) and was definitely missing something, probably garlic. The server was a bit awkward and she kept making excuses and blaming others for the issues. Prices are way too high."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Though, being that it was Father's Day, it was too noise for my comfort. The waitress showed up maybe twice and very distracted/rushing to get us out. Not very friendly. We've had other times where the person taking our doers have been fabulous unlike this time."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We had high expectations that were unmet. We do not prefer family-style dining b/c we have 4 different people with different tastes and preferences. The food took a VERY long time to be served. The portions were not huge (as we had been told), and the food was average at best. We still can't figure out why we were given a "tour" of the kitchen - very awkward and strange. We usually expect bread at an Italian restaurant to knock our socks off, but it didn't. We could have found similar quality at our local grocery store. Overall, this restaurant was nothing special, and way overpriced. We will not go back."

  • "After we got to the restaurant I requested a booth for my family, our hostess stated there were none available so they seated us at a table.. When we got upstairs there were 4 booths empty around us.. They lost part of our ticket for our dinner.. So my children ate then an hour later my husband and I finally received our food by this time my kids were bored and wanted to leave. Very stressful!"

  • "1ST THING IS THAT THEY WEREN'T SO BUSY BUT THE SERVICE SEEMED SLOW AND NOT THAT GOOD. WE HAD TO GET OUR OWN PLATES BEHIND US AND THEY ONLY GAVE US ONE SMALL PLATE OF DIPPING OIL ( 11 OF US) AND WATER GLASSES NOT FILLED UNTIL WE ASKED. THE FOOD SEEMED NOT AS FLAVORFUL. LIKE "WATERED" DOWN. WE WERE ALSO SURPRISED THAT THE CHICKEN PARMESAN FOR THE PRICE, WASN'T SERVED WITH PASTA..... PASTA IS CHEAP! WE CAME 12 MILES WHICH ISN'T A LOT, BUT IT WAS NOT WORTH THE TIME TO GET THERE. DOUBT WE WILL BE COMING AGAIN. SORRY, BUT YOU ASKED!"

  • "We had a great time at Buca with our family, the food was to die for, The 1893 Salad is now our family favorite for the 11 people in our group. Our server Krista: was very attentive, and we liked all the different choices, and every platter was someone's favorite to share with the rest of the Group. Krista our server, was quick and really accommodating to our group size of 11 people. We defininately will ask for Krista next time we come to the restaurant, she was awesome. Buca keeps adding great family memories for us. Thanks again, The Barnetts."

  • "Waiter " Chris" spilled hot liquid on my wifes chest and lap. Burned her pretty bad. Waiter had manager give discoumt on check but manager never stopped by to check on my wifes burn and ruined dress.This was a special occation dinner. Very dissapointed that management didnt even car enough to see how badly she had been burned. Bucca only cares about turning tables getting people in and out to maximize their sales. Thats too bad."

  • "We were in town for 2 nieces' high school graduations and wanted to grab lunch afterwards. Food is always good, service was good, kids had a great time. House chianti is a nice wine at a good price, and the girls loved the HUGE brownie sundae to celebrate! Not a big fan of their calamari - kind of chewy - but the pastas were fantastic and my daughter's grilled chicken and steamed vegies were perfect. "

  • "Always great food and good for families. The bartender was very personable! The only negative was we didn't get the private room that I requested and with a fussy 4 month baby in our party of ten, that request would have been greatly appreciated!"

  • "Staff was very accommodating. Service very attentive. We were a large group for my daughters graduation. When we pulled up to the restaurant they had an advertisement on the side walk lookin for cooks (bad sign.) Food tasty but not very memorable. Pretty plain jane. Portions were healthy and the tiramisu hit a home run. I would return for dessert, but I would be solo because my husband was not swayed! 👎👎"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Although the food was good and the portions were large, they really need to scale back the prices and the amount of food they give you, its just too pricey for what you get. Its like their forcing you to pay more than you would or need too."

  • "We made last minute reservations through Open Table on Mother's Day. We were greeted and seated promptly even though the restaurant was very busy. Our server allowed us to enjoy drinks and take our time. We never felt rushed or neglected. As usual, the food was tasty and plentiful."

  • "My Daughter & I had reservations at the arrowhead resturant for mom's day. we were seated quickly and with fun. my grandson (2) slept throught most of it my only slight complaint was the food was a little long in coming even though they weren't overly busy at the time we were there but as usual the quality & quantity more then made up for it & our server tho a little brisk at first turned out to be a real sweatheart. deffinitely love this place "

  • "We came with a reservation on Mothers day, it was not busy at the time we arrived. we ordered cheesy mozzarella garlic bread and two entrees.. We got the entrees 35 minutes after we ordered and didn't get the appetizer until we were already done with our meal. I understand it was a big day for a lot of people going out to eat, why would you offer poor service on a day that may get more regular customers. Manager offered to take appetizer off bill, haven't been to buca for over 10 years, was not impressed."

  • "It was Mothers Day which I can well understand . Service was only so so. Food was spot on. Very busy place but we were all satisfied in the end. My Mother had a hard time hearing as we had a ciouple of loud parties. Liked the reservation system. At end they said they had problems with credit card machine had to run our bill in 2 equal amounts. Very funny especially in day when credit card fraud is running rampant. Overall a good experience."

There are literally THOUSANDS of them on the walls (not all rated PG, however;) My kids love it. Next time, we're definitely getting the Colossal Brownie dessert. The couple at the next table ordered one and it was huge (lol, so big that they shared with my kiddos:) We'll definitely be back -- love the Chicken Parm."

  • "Food was excellent and more than enough for take home extras. Server was efficient, friendly, but not a pest. She did a great job explaining the menu & portion sizes. I would probably be inclined to go back for lunch. The portion sizes for dinner are just huge! The online reservation set up was simple and smooth and efficient. "

  • "Not our first visit but a newly found favorite. As he is of Italian descent, pleasing him with Italian restaurant food is a challenge. Buca consistently pleases his Italian palette. Along with great service and environment, the birthday celebration evening was a hit!!"

  • "Went on prom night, so restaurant was VERY busy - noisy and energetic. My companion and I ordered a small salad and a small, family style lasagna for two people. The salad was great, but we really felt it should have been included in the price of the lasagna. Also, the lasagna was very cheesy, which we liked, but the pasta was mushy and somewhat watery. I would definitely recommend the spaghetti with meat sauce over the lasagna. With so many Italian restaurant choices, it's hard to put Buca di Beppo at the top of our Italian restaurant list."

  • "This was my first visit to your resstaurant. The young girl who seated us was lazy especially as we walked upstairs to be seated. We had to ask to see the kitchen which is part of the experience and she responded " Oh you wanna see the kitchen "? As we proceeded through the kitchen the girl rambled something which I did not understand. While we were waiting in the lobby to be seated. I even noticed the manager motion to this young girl to smile. My preception of her is that she is lazy and showed no effort to make our expereince and EXCELLENT. Ben & his trainee were EXCELLENT. Ben served us with respect, excellent effort and was very knowledgeable about what the resturant has to offer. Because of Ben we had an excellent time."

  • "Dinner experience was less than expected. Slow service and mediocre food. Our veal parm needed to be returned because it was chewy and tough. Baked rigatoni and meatballs were just ok. Delicious Italian cream cake finished off the dinner nicely. Service was very slow and server kept apologizing because they were short staffed. Manager took off the veal parm from our bill, no questions asked, which was an excellent gesture. Average experience, probably won't return to this location. We have always had an excellent food experience at the Scottsdale location."

  • "We went there with friends and were able to have a nice dinner with conversation without being drowned out by loud music. We were pleased to find a couple of dishes that didn't seem to have too much garlic so that one of us with a sensitive stomach could dine in comfort. It would be nice if more dishes were offered without garlic for those who do have this problem. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. He did push the cheesecake almost to extreme but other than that it was a very pleasant experience."
