    I'm always disappointed at Italian restaurants when the pasta comes and it is mushy and flavorless. Buca di Beppo knows how to cook pasta! It was perfect, as was the shrimp! Lots of flavor and the service was wonderful! I am very impressed!

    Although it is an hour and 15 minute drive from our home to Buca, we have been there 3 times in 2014! We always find the staff very friendly, hospitable, and the food is always consistently good! Being somewhat budget-driven, we always take advantage of coupons to offset the cost, and we always have food to take home and enjoy the next day or two (I usually have it for my lunch that I take to work the following day)!

    This was the worst dining experience I've ever had in Metro Denver. We had a 730 reservation and finally were sat at 8 o'clock. It took 10 minutes simply to get water and the food was extremely overpriced and lacked chicken in the chicken pasta and the veal was mostly tendons and inedible.

    Not as good as we thought it was going to be. Average Italian food at best, way overpriced. The best part was the Italian beer and the Italian Margarita. Olive Garden is still our choice for a chain.

    My wife and I visited on a Friday night. The parking lot was 3/4 full, and yet we had a table and service right away. Buca takes care of their people. RECOMMENDATION: Try the "Linguine Frutti di Mare" dish. A seafood delight together with pasta, and just enough hot pepper to give it that right zing. What a wonderful meal! Makes you say, Mama mia, that's Italian!!

    We literally got seated and the hostess had to take our order and served us water and bread. After that, we had to ask the chef who came out to serve another table to check on our food. A runner came out with our food half hour after we ordered. We don't even know who our waitress was.

    I don't know why I keep going back to this place. I try and I try to like Buca. As far as chain restaurants go I like the food here and the family style portions make one meal into a second the next day at home. The food is usually pretty good here and that leads to value but there is just always a service disaster going on. You don't get bread or you have to beg for refills for your 3 dollar soft drink or the food comes out all at the same time (salad, bread, main dish). The other thing and this is really not fair but as word gets out about the value the type of people and the number of screaming babies and running around children is getting out of hand. It is horrible. So while it will do in a pinch I can't recommend

    We love Buca for since it serves the six of us very well with the portions. But the service was very slow and the food was luke warm. The chicken limone was dry and not a lot of sauce. We will go back but just din't seem like they handled a big crowd very well.

    I have dined at this Buca di Beppo before and as always the food was excellent ! There is a decent selection of wine and the food portions are generous even for the small order. Very nice atmosphere and definitely family friendly.My only complaint would be that you may encounter some noise from children if you are on a date or special occasion but that probably goes along with any family friendly restaurant.Prices are really quite reasonable for what you get.

    Had a large group of a dozen or so. Sat at the bar while waiting for the whole group. Bartender was super friendly, as was our table waiter. The food was good although a little slow in coming out. It was a Friday evening, so that could be the reason. Overall, the atmosphere was perfect for a group setting including kids. The lasagne, chicken parm, spicy shrimp pasta dish, spaghetti and antipasti salad were great. The green beans are one of our favorites. However, the baked ziti was a bit dry.

    Dined on 8/18/2014
    We were the only ones in the restaurant, which I thought would mean great service. I was wrong. We arrived at 5 p.m. and were seated right away. It took 10 minutes to get drinks. When we asked for a moment to review the menu, the server did not return for another 10 minutes even though we were his only table. When the appetizer came out, 45 minutes into our visit, it was lukewarm. During our time there other tables began to fill up and it was hard for us to get refills. At one point, our server walked past us and sighed, and then had another server help him with our table. Since we were celebrating a birthday our server pointed out that the birthday guest would get a brownie. When the time came, his helper server corrected him, no brownie.

    We go to Buca di Beppo a few times a year to celebrate birthdays and our wedding anniversary, and we usually try to reserve the kitchen table. There we can see the action behind the meal preparation, along with having the servers stop by and highlight for us the various menu selections as they are on their way to deliver them to others dining in the restaurant. Portions are ample, servers are personable, and the overall experience is always top-notch!

  • Where was the chicken?
    gladandsad2
    Dined on 7/18/2014
    We received the spicy chicken pasta that looked wonderful on the menu, chock full of meat. But when it came to our table we literally couldn't see any meat. We moved the pasta and found a few pieces of chicken in the bowl. The food was delicious, but it was extremely disappointing to find there was very little meat. As for our waitress, she was alright, but we seemed to wait a long time in between water filling and desert. We ordered our desert about 15 -20 min. before it came. She told us about 3 - 4 times it was coming, and when it did finally come she smelled like cigarette smoke. It made us think there was a hold up in the kitchen and probably not her fault. We thought the dessert would be bigger since it was so expensive.

    We were celebrating a birthday and had a group of about 10 people, and the restaurant was not very busy when we arrived. The wait staff was friendly but not very attentive. Our drinks arrived, and one basket of bread (for 10 of us). Took another 15 minutes to take our orders. Our salad arrived promptly and then we waited, and waited and waited some more. It literally took 30mins for our food to arrive. This was after we tracked down the manager on duty. She was apologetic and offered us some free dessert. We did order the large brownie sundae, which took another 20 minutes to arrive and was all melted. Regardless we had a great time, the food was very good, but spending close to 3 hours there was longer than anticipated.

    We hadn't been to Buca in exactly 7 months, since our wedding rehearsal dinner, mostly because we moved 35 minutes away from the restaurant. We finally made it back and the bruschetta, fried mozzarella, and stuffed shells were as amazing as ever! The service is warm and friendly, and reasonably prompt even when the restaurant is packed! The food is amazing (and I'm picky about my Italian!), and even though I hadn't had Italian in a while, it didn't sit heavy like Italian food can do. My husband had the manicotti, which was also incredible - some of the best ricotta I've ever had - and we shared a Vesuvius cake for dessert, which was huge but even good left over and reheated! I HIGHLY recommend Buca to anyone who loves good Italian food!

    The service was very slow even though there were empty seats in the restaurant and the the waitress even said that she had a lot of tables to wait on. We had to ask for bread, the silverware (fork) had a piece of food stuck on it so we asked the waitress to give us new silverware. And the glasses of water and wine took at least 15 minutes to arrive. I have eaten at Buca before and it has never been this poor of service before so I was truly surprised and unfortunately, I had taken a guest with me who had never dined there before so he wasn't impressed to say the least.

    The food was ok. The atmosphere was fine. The prices were high. You had to pay for everything. Bread was even extra. I liked the family style dining but the prices were not super family friendly unless you only order 1 item and plan on not having salad or bread with your meal and only drink water. Soda was 2.99.

    Showed up at 6:55pm for a 7:00pm reservation, did not get seated until 8pm. They claimed that they were short on staff. Short on staff for a Saturday Night? I'm pretty sure everyone knows you're going to be busy on a Saturday Night. Also, it should not be too hard to hire staff for this location with its proximity to the University. Im just glad we had a reservation because people without were being told the wait would be 2 hours. Anyway, the service was terrible our waiter couldn't remember anything. He was just running around in circles. There was no sign of a Manager anywhere to apologize for this inconvenience. Maybe thats who didn't show up for their shift. I can't believe this was so bad.

    We usually enjoy Buca but this visit was not good at all. I made a reservation on open table. My husband and I arrived and sat right down. But they put us in the lounge which was so loud with the servers chatting at the bar loudly while getting their drink orders. Our server was so unbelievably slow. He took forever to bring us 2 waters. He then brought the bread and took our order. The a/c was so strong in the restaurant and blowing right over us that our food arrived and was cold in 2 minutes. The food was bland . Our waiter did not offer us a dessert so we asked for one. He brought it out but everything was in slow monition. We arrived there at 7:15 pm and left at 9, thats a long dinner for 2 people. It was not a good night at buca.

    We were seated at our table, drink order was taken, our order was taken. Shortly we received our drinks, then our salad. We had just started on salad when main dishes (2) delivered. Usually finish your salad before your main course is delivered. Main dishes cold by the time we got to them and we had salad left over. Hurried salad to eat main dishes so we had left over sale. Our server did not serve our main dish and when we said something to the person who delivered it, she went back and whispered to our server our concerns Our server came over (not immediately) and said the kitchen "timing" was off. We asked for extra sauce hoping it would warm the spaghetti, but sauce came cold. The food was good though. Pam Bollard
