Diner Reviews
  • "Have to say Buca is an interesting place - a different concept for menu "strategy," numerous small rooms that are overly decorated with photos that are just off a little bit, they sort of had a carnival side show feel to them. Our group was bunched up real tightly and the place is loud. There's even a booth located in the kitchen that customers parade by to get to their own table, glad we weren't sitting there. It's all a bit manufactured, and expensive. But we did have a very good waiter and the food was good. Not special, but good. But I'll stick to the places I know that are smaller and more authentic. I suppose Buca is the Disney version of Italian restaurants and I'm not inclined to return."

  • "We've been to Buca do Beppo twice and both times the food was really good and served "family style" in portions large enough for at least two. The price is a bit high for regular visits but OK for special occasions. Unfortunately the noise level has been very high on both visits. It is so noisy, in fact, that it's difficult to have a conversation at lower than loud volume. This survey terms it "energetic", I call it loud. If you are looking for really tasty Italian but not a quiet atmosphere, Buca may be your place."

  • "The food was good and priced well for teenagers at prom. But we could never get a Server and we never got the brownie we ordered so it was just more of a hassle to get the check."

  • "This place is the closest I've ever gotten to recreating family meals at my italian friend's home. More from the food angle then from the "you look thin, eat!" angle but I'll take the food. This is not high cuisine it is family fare and it is excellent and portions are ample and plan on leftovers."

  • "We had three generations of family at the table Friday night. Our waiter. Michael was amazing and we had a blast trying so many great options. The Peach Bellini's are amazing and the wine selection was perfectly paired with the menu. The portions are huge so everyone can taste a little of everything, and the pizza's are amazing. A great choice for a fun evening at a great price."

  • "The food was very good and we had lots of it. The only issue I had was the seating was really tight. I think you could do a little better with a part of 10 or more; no one wants to be right in the walkway."

  • "The restaurant is know for serving large family style portions--and they didn't fail. Great for multi-generation family get-togethers."

  • "paid 60usd for ok, again just ok pasta, chicken parmagan paid 20usd for two chicken patties with a little marinara sauce and no pasta. at maggianos you get 4 chicken patties with pasta for under 20 usd and get this ..if you order a pasta ie lasagna you get another lasagna to take home with you. buca is barley ok as far as quality ie taste but not nothing to write home about. and the prices of the alcoholic drinks is astronomical a beer not even imported is roughly 25 usd for one beer, f that.i would not recommend this place unless you like getting taken."

  • "The food was mediocre. Not over-salted, but bland. Salad and bread was better than the entree. NOT a good date place. Did not like "family style" arrangement. My date and I were led through the kitchen area to our table. That was not classy. We were seated near a family with a billion loud, obnoxious children. My date wanted a glass of water, no waitress. When we found her, it took too long. Again, don't bring a date here! There was no meat-filled Ravioli. We had reservations at Macaroni Grill that had lobster stuffed Ravioli. I wish I had gone there. Or tried Brio. Sorry, I did not have a pleasant experience. I'm (almost) sorry I left a 25% tip. The waitress can't be blamed for everything and tips are how they live. Goodbye."

  • "The food is spectacular! I had never tasted Italian food this good, it melts in your mouth. The wait staff is awesome! They are kind and make sure you are well taken care of. We celebrated my daughters 16th birthday and we all had a great experience. The family style setting is great for kids as well."

  • "We had good service in previous occasions but this time the waiter was very unfriendly. He gave us no information of food and seize. We had to raise our hands to get his attention many times."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The food was really good and, because they serve "family style" our 'small' order fed us to complete satisfaction with a fill serving of everything left over. Our waiter was friendly, outgoing and very attentive. We'll definitely go back and recommend this restaurant highly to anyone who likes good Italian food at a moderate price. By the way, it was my wife's birthday but at her request they quietly wished her a happy birthday but didn't make a big fuss or raise a racket as they were doing for others around us."

  • "Great place to gather and share with friends. Food is great and you leave there very satisfied. From walking through the front doors to your table, the welcome is energetic. Walking through the kitchen is different but great to see the dishes being made. The staff makes Birthdays fun."

  • "This is a great place to go if you have a big group, want pasta, and don't want to eat just one thing. The family style dining lets everyone try a bit of everything and the prices are very reasonable. Service was great, only complaint is that they don't have much in the way of beer selection."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "All six of the guests were here, the food was in generous portions, and everyone got their drinks in time. Besides one guest being late, I had a blast. The server has a dry sense of humor that I appreciate and tipped him well! The only down side is that the table we're assigned to has about a dozen seats while there's only six of us. But I guess you gotta make due."

  • "I went on Valentines day. They first sat us at a makeshift foldup table that was situated totally awkward in the middle of the room. I asked to be moved. Two other couples after me were seated there and they also asked to be moved. Totally a bad decision to set a cheap fold up table in the middle of the room. Waiter forgot my tea order. The $12 chocolate cake was not very good either; Ive had much better. I used to like Bucca di Beppo, but it seems their prices have soared for food that was really not very good as I had remembered before. I'm totally not impressed with this restaurant anymore."

  • "We love going to Buca for any reason we can find, its always an experience. The best part is ordering huge entrees and sharing the wealth... the drinks are pretty good here as well. I highly recommend the chicken parm! If you have a large group ask for the pope table."

  • "Love Buca di Beppo for group outings. Really nice place for a medium (4-10) size group. We had a team dinner there for work. Great atmosphere. Seating is in semi-secluded roomettes. Background noise level was perfect for ambiance, without being obstructive to conversation. We had a large round table with a lazy susan for serving the family style dishes. This place really shines when it comes to group dining, but I don't know if it would be my first choice for a couples outing. The food was really good, and the service excellent. Will definitely be back for another group outing."
