Diner Reviews
  • "I wouldn't go back here - I have given it 2 tries, and the food is SO expensive for what you get. Plus, it is SO greasy, and didn't make me feel that great. I asked the hosts to turn down the music several times, and they never did."

  • "I know some of the reviews for this Buca's, specifically, haven't been great - but I went with my boyfriend and had an amazing time! The service was excellent! Our waitress was amazing, helpful, and so nice. I was really happy with the whole dinner and how everything went. I would definitely recommend this Buca de Beppo to anyone who loves great Italian dining."

  • "Good food and service. However, even with a coupon, the meal was very pricey for the amount of food we received. This restaurant is better served for large groups or special occasions."

  • "It was Valentine Day and it was very busy. We still received great service and very good food."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was good, but price was too high for what it is. We were sat at a table directly in view of the kitchen which was not pleasant for anyone, let aline a couple celebrating a birthday together. There were ample seats as it was not crowded. The dessert cake was aweful and taste like cardboard."

  • "I was surprised that this restaurant was in the mall - no indication of that from the outside of the mall or from their website. The food was good and after getting inside the atmosphere was like any other restaurant - just surprised at the location."

  • "The food was excellent. We loved sharing and getting to taste so many different dishes. Things were not as organized as they should be, but it was Christmas Day. We had a 4:30 reservation, but no one was at the front to greet customers. When we got the attention of wait-staff, they could not seem to find our reservation and stated that they would get our table ready. An order of garlic bread never arrived, so we ended up cancelling the order. I may have been mistaken, but thought the waitress said that a loaf of unheated bread would be brought to the table. If so, it never made it either. We ordered 2 desserts, but found out later that they were out of one. Next day, I received an email that we were a no-show for our reservation."

  • "My husband, son and I wanted to do something a little different this Christmas so we decided to eat out. It is easily said but difficult to find in Champaign-Urbana. With a little research we found that Buca De Beppo was open and we have eaten at other locations in the past. I made the reservation on line and when we got there everything was done just right! The food was very good and the service very good as well. We will keep this in mind when looking for quality places to dine in the future."

  • "We had one of the most delicious dinners at Buca that my family has had in a long time. I recommend the Lasagna & the Gorgonzola & apple salad."

  • "Have been several times and seems inconsistent on food size and service. For the most part it's been great. See lots of employees eating and hanging out in the bar area ( very odd). I still am giving them a chance ."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "The food was excellent, but that was the only thing we enjoyed. Have never been treated so rudely. We were rushed the entire time. Arrived early with 2 friends to enjoy drink at bar but were seated immediately, food came before we could enjoy our drinks, water not refilled, other tables around us being reset LOUDLY with dishes while we ate, once finished we were asked to leave because a large party was coming in. The other room had a few empty tables the entire time we were there. Why were we not seated there so we could enjoy our dinner and friends? Always loved Buca's while in Minnesota but the Champaign store has just lost us as well as our 2 friends and their family who they were planning to take in the near future."

  • "Our Thanksgiving feast was very yummy except for the green beans. They came to the table cold and hard and not fit to eat. Everything else was delicious. Loved the turkey and dressing. Loved the cannolis, too. Our waitress was super. But don't serve up those green beans again."

  • "My snow bird parents were in the state visiting friends, so my partner and I decided to do a little road trip weekend down to Champaign IL. My parents had the shrimp fettuccine, while my partner and I had the Chicken Marsala. While being engrossed in conversation, we failed to realize that pasta was a side for the Chicken Marsala, nor did our server point this out. :( Chicken Marsala was the BEST I had ever had. Will definitely be going back to this chain."

  • "Our bread, salad, and food all came within 5 minutes of each other. Would have preferred they be spaced out to enjoy each especially as there wasn't much room on the table. Not impressed with the waitress we had, the food was good but pricey if you can't agree and share!"

  • "It was our daughter's 18 birthday and they really made her feel special. We have dined and many a Buca and have loved them all."
    Dined on 11/10/2013
  • "The food was very good but it is an expensive restaurant for Champaign Illinois. We go only once in awhile for a special day and would likely go more often but for the cost. Looking at the crowd that was there on a Friday night I don't think Buca de Beppo will be there for much longer."
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "Food good, service good, great decor. Experienced my pet peeve question from waiter. "Are you still working on it?" when referring to waiter wanting to clear table. What a horrid, stupid question! A follow up question, was even more asinine. "Are you throwing in the tool?" or something to that effect. I enjoy eating food; it is not, however, work, nor is it my job. Moreover, I don't consider eating food in a restaurant an experience likened to a boxing match where I'm being beaten into submission."
