    My fiancé's 5 year old got burned on the top of his head and was taken to the hospital. During a birthday celebration a huge candelabra was brought out and the incompetent server dripped hot wax on his head. What idiots. The manager stood there with his head up his a** instead of assisting.

    We order the mixed green salad and added the Gorgonzola and prosciutto as an extra and it was excellent. The veal parm was a great choice and the spicy chicken rigatoni was just right. Service great and place friendly and clean. Can't wait to go again.

    Overall all the food was very good, but the salad crouton were extremely hard. The music was too loud and it was hard to hear each other. The wait between the entries took too long. The dessert was extremely large and when we ordered it, we asked to have it cut in smaller pieces to share and waitress was not able to accommodate the request. I found that to be very strange that we cannot request a cake to be cut in three piece. I suggest to reduce those cake sizes or accommodate the customer's order to cut it down to share.

    I was searching for a restaurant that could accommodate a group of 8 easily. A friend recommended Buca Di Beppo. I never heard of it, but I am so glad she did! I can't say enough about our server. She allowed us lots of time to gab, while still managing to serve us quickly! She was outstanding! The food was terrific, and we all walked out of there stuffed. LOVED the family style serving. We ordered a bunch of small dishes, and were able to sample them all. We fed 8 ladies for under $200!! Unbelievable!!! We'll be dining here again and again!

    I dine at Buca di Beppo at least 3X a month. The staff at this restaurant are very friendly, attentive, and make the overall dining experience enjoyable. The gorganzola salad was amazing. There was an abundance of cheese, granny apples and crazins. The eggplant parm was delicious! It was crispy and was served nice and hot. I most definitely recommend this restaurant.

    We have been to several Buca di Beppo restaurants and this was my least favorite. No walk through the kitchen for the kids to enjoy. In fact when i asked about it, the hostess replied that "there is no kitchen!" Weird. But food and service were perfect as usual.

  • Caeser salad was great. Fettucini
    KimG
    Dined on 4/12/2014
    Caeser salad was great. Fettucini Alfredo was too dry. Ziti was bland. Bread was fantastic. Calamari was spongy. Mozzarella cheese was delicious. Waitress was attentive and great. It was too dark and loud at the table where we were placed. Despite having lots of other "quainter" locations to be seated, we (a party of six) were placed smack dab in the middle of an already crowded dining room. We felt exposed and obvious. When asked if we could increase the lighting, the waitress obliged after asking for permission from her manager. Another couple even raised a closed blind up so they could read their menus! Shortly after we ordered, the mgr came into our dining room and dimmed the lights and turned the music up again.

    This was not our first time at a Buca so we knew what to expect. Family style dining was perfect for our group of eight. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu and was very helpful in food choice and sizes. There was more than enough food and everyone seemed to enjoy what they ate. Service was a little slow but I'm not sure if it was the kitchen or wait staff. Overall a pleasant experience and we will return.

    I dine here at least three times a month. Our server James was outstanding! He was friendly, attentive and got the order right. The GM Taylor made sure our dinner came out the way we like it. The Gorgonzala Salad was incredible. It was so fresh. The eggplant parm. had just the right amount of cheese and tomato sauce. It was also nice and hot. Buca di Beppo will never disappoint. It was a very enjoyable dining experience.

  • Disappointed
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 3/20/2014
    Love the online reservation from website. We enjoyed the wine, although it was very pricey for this wine.. We ordered from the 4 for $40 menu. We ordered garden salad and got Caesar salad. The garlic rolls were like paste and left a bad taste in the mouth later. We ordered Fettucine Alfredo. It came in one big clump with very little sauce. I had to go find our waiter to get a bowl of hot sauce. The sauce came too late to enjoy. Our server was pleasant but should have checked back with us within 2 minutes of our salad and entree being served so he could have corrected both situations. I will probably have a difficult time asking my friends back to this restaurant as we were very disappointed.

    Went to Buca with a party of 8 to celebrate a grandchild's birthday. This is the third time we went with a multigenerational group. As always, the staff was helpful and accommodating. The food, served in huge portions for sharing, was better than expected. I'm always surprised at how good it is for a mid-priced, family oriented chain.

    We started off with the introduction of our waiter Vic (not with a D) & he was excellent. There were 7 of us, so to start we had the mixed green salad & a Antipasto Salad and both were fresh & delicious, & with that we had the Garlic bread. yum. Since most things are served family style with large portions, we had the chicken Parmesan, linguini With a very fresh home made marinara sauce, and who could forget a large Supremo Italiano Pizza. We figured that with that much food on the table, and were still hungary we would order more. We ended up taking a lot home. So much food, but everyone walked out very full an happy. This is a place that we will frequent when in the area. Thank you Vic for making a great evening for all of us.

    The good news is that they honored our reservation. We had a 7:00PM reservation and when we arrived at 6:55 we were escorted to a lovely table. It was Valentine's Day. The restaurant was crowded, but there were some empty tables. Our waiter took our order at 7:10 and brought us bread. At 7:40, we asked another waiter to look into our order. Our waiter came back and apologetically told us our order would be out shortly. The manager came over and said they were running late because they were very busy. (What? They didn't expect to be busy on Valentine's Day.). We left at 8:30. Can't comment on the food because we never had anything to eat. Can't really rate the food because we never had anything to eat.

    Usually an amazing experience all around. This visit was a bit troubled. Food was impeccable as always. However, the restaurant was extremely short staffed causing food to come out slowly and staff unavailable. Not to mention they were out of menu items. Not our best experience at one of our favorite dining stops.

    I love veal, and it was very tough....I spoke to the manager and he said people were speaking of that fact and he gave us a credit....what I would have done upon the first complaint, was taste a piece of it myself, and remove it from the menu and send the veal back to the supplier...I say this as I come from this industry in Boston ..

    We dined on New Year's Eve and I was not sure what to expect since some of the other reviews were mixed. I was pleasantly surprised by both the service and the quality of the food. I had set my expectations low and was glad to find that I enjoyed the food and the service was also very good. Our waitress was great and very attentive. My only complaint was that the music was not loud enough. I will definitely be back.
