    First no fork for appetizers - the little cocktail forks - should not eat clams or mussels with a dinner fork. Veal marsala too sweet - glaze of some sort - should also have a veal piccata on the menu which I really wanted. My friend I brought wanted shrimp diavalo- very unhappy Italian male I was with - it came out on ziti with a dream sauce - that is not diavalo - clams too big for a clams casino - but different 0- bacon is suppose to be over casino - so overall I was really not happy - probby will go somewhere else next time

    Me and my wife split the chicken parm with a side of spaghetti. 3 nice portions of chicken was served. Probably could have fed 3 people. I can't wait to go back!

    Food was fabulous. But way too much, however, no one goes away hungry. Just what Bally's needed a quality dining facility. As with Guy's nothing needs to be changed.

    Noise level was awful...tables too small for the amount of dishes. Food was just awful. Do not order mussels Bianca (spongy texture not even a hint of olive oil), chopped Italian salad was bagged lettuce with a few pieces of pepperoni, mozzarella caprese used unripe tomatoes in summertime in NJ. Tiramisu was awful...no whipped cream or lady fingers...resembled a cheesecake. Our waiter, however, was delightful. Would never go back. Makes Carmines look like a gourmet experience.

    We came with a group of 16 to celebrate 2 birthdays. They put us in a private room which was perfect for our group. Food was great. Only complaint was service slow and they didn't bring out one dinner that we ordered. We understand the resturant is new so we will definitely give it another try

    When we arrived there were so many people waiting in line but with our reservation we were seated within a minute:) The food is consistently good at all of the Buca di Beppo's we have eaten at across the country and this one in Atlantic City was no exception. Sign up for their emails, they send great coupons! we had $10.00 of a $20.00 purchase!

    I booked Buca because we were going to be 10 people at dinner and I didn't want to worry about being loud or splitting the check. I know Buca usually accommodates large groups. I have to say the ambiance isn't' like other chain Bucas I have been to. It is more "open concept" and others I have been to are small and make your table feel intimate. Anyway, we got two salads and two mains and had more than enough left over. The food wasn't amazing, but it was good and we all had a great time. Plus we were stuffed!

    Food served family sytle. Although advertised as very large portions, it was adequate for two. Tasty, but nothing exceptional. Rao's meatballs run circles around this restaurants " specialty ". Prices for two were ok. Servers were friendly. Stephanie was superb.

    Wait staff had deplorable English; difficult to hear and strong native articulation. Greeter was rude and server failed to explain various dinner options. Way to much food for two people...simply wasteful. Noisy environment. A good place to try, but I would not go back again.

    I brought some of my Family for dinner while staying at Ballys, we eere 3 adults and 2 children and we had a nice dinner. The portions were more than generous, the food tasty and the choices very good, the service was a little slow but I attribute that to the fact they've only been open a few weeks. Definitely s good place for larger groups and the kids enjoyed themselves, I will definitely go back.

    The pasta we ordered was too soft. (Rigatoni with grilled chicken in a Rosa sauce) The chicken tasted like something that was prepacked and heated up in the microwave. It was chewy!It was supposed to be grilled! My husband couldn't even eat it! I have to say the antipasto salad was very good. He filled up on that. Reasonably priced and large portions. Maybe we just ordered the wrong item.

    The food was great and came out very quickly. And the staff was very friendly, polite and helpful. The biggest downfalls for me was the actual experience. I have taken my family to the now closed location in Philadelphia on many occasions because of the tour of the restaurant and kitchen, plus the decor of the different rooms. That made the experience stand out from other restaurants. Also, the actual location of the restaurant is very difficult to find and get to. It's hidden on the 6th floor of the hotel and we had to walk through guest room hallways to get there.

    I had looked forward to going here for my birthday. No one seemed to know what to do with menus or seating. No one was friendly at all. I ordered the spinach artichoke dip and it had about 6oz. in a bowl with some bread for $14.99 We got a few small dishes to share. It was over a hundred dollars, and the only thing that was plentiful was the pasta. This was a huge disappointment. No one ever mentioned my birthday. Maybe they need to gets the kinks out, but I wouldn't go back.

    i have been to serveral bucca restaurants, the food at baily's bucca was wondeful. However, the service left alot to be desired. Waited almost an hour for our family salad, our granddaughters drink was forgotten,waited forever for our main course. And the restaurant was not even busy. One of the patrons in the table next to ours stood up and demanded the dinner check in a loud angry voice.

    The food was wonderful...but, the place just opened so there were MANY mess-ups! First of all it is super bright..all lights on. We had 3 different people waiting on us. They were so jammed up while taking our order that they forgot all the menus that sat on our table for quite sometime. Our entree was brought out with the salad. Instead of the salad being first. After the meal was brought out, like 30 seconds later, the waiter asked what we wanted for dessert. We said ..not sure yet. :/..... The kids that waited on us were very nice but, there needs to be some "waiter/waitress training. The food was really good though. Oh yeah, they didn't know what a "snifter" was for an after dinner drink and they didn't have any black zambuca.

    A surprising gem of an inexpensive restaurant in Ballys Atlantic City Casino. The food, chicken Parmesan, spaghetti marinara, and sangria, was excellent. We would definitely return. Our waiter was attentive despite staffing shortages. The only blip in our experience was that the bus boy did not ask if we wanted to take our leftovers. We didn't because we were staying at the hotel, but he didn't know that.

    The food was good. Our waitress was not so good. She forgot some drinks, forgot to song happy birthday and forgot about us at the end. The manager had to cone over and ask if we needed our good wrapped and our check. Overall, the restaurant is fun and food is good, we just got stuck with a terrible wait staff.

    We just realized the place opened less than two weeks ago. Yet the place was busy and energetic. Service was somewhat uneven but to be expected. I am hopeful with time, they will get the timing down.Glad we followed recommendation to share a small entree and a cap reset salad. The chicken& Italian sausage pasta dish was awesome. Left no room for dessert. We will be back. The prices are reasonable and the wines. Y the glass are well rounded and priced ok. On the negative side, they don't have a bar so if you are waiting for a table you have to go a cross way to the new Chophouse where I paid $22 for a colors and a glass of house wine. Ouch. Also, we had a comfortable table but it sits next to a walkway that people keep walking by .
