    We came here recently to celebrate a "going away" for our oldest son going to college. The food was great and the service was outstanding! I wish I could remember her name. We sat in a round table meant for larger groups and it was nice. I highly recommend this restaurant! We will be back!

    The Chandler location is frequently not busy during the lunch hours. We have been to this location for lunch a number of times and are always promptly greeted and seated. If you haven't already joined the Buca email club, you are missng out on some good deals that are perfect for two to four diners.

    Always love Buca! Great food, great service, kids friendly. We go at least every other month and on birthdays. The waitress we had this time was not attentive. She served us bread with no plates or oliver oil and vinegar. We had to use the same dirty plates for our pasta. Our pasta were dry and stick together which is a sign of sitting in the kitchen for awhile. The new vegetable pasta was dry and not tasty except lots of fresh veggies. Worse experience we ever had.

    Buca is a wonderful place to take a friend for her birthday. We avoided the dinner crowd by reserving a table for two at 830 via OpenTable. The app was quick, convenient and easy. I was even able to modify the time with no hassle. We arrived on time to be greeted by the hostess and our waiter, Caleb. The place was quiet with soft music in the background. Caleb was a very good waiter. The caesar salad was good followed by the spaghetti and meatballs which were good also. All the food is served family style. The Mediterranean Breeze was refreshing. The 9 Oz glass of Torrasella was a delightful pairing with the entrée, having a hint of black cherry, spice and faint smokiness. The Limoncello was a perfect dessert ending as we were very full.

    My parents and I had a lovely Father's Day lunch on Sunday. Taylor, our server, was very gracious and handled our table in a superb manner. The food was wonderful. We started with Caprese. My mom said she never had seen such big basil leaves! The combo with the tomatoes and mozzarella was delicious. We had a coupon for a free small pasta dish and my dad chose his favorite, fettuccine Alfredo. It came with chicken, but my dad loved it. He especially loved the bread (and he chose to use butter instead of the olive oil/balsamic to dip in). My mom and I shared the Gorgonzola and green apple salad - delicious, and the chicken (spinach) cannelloni - to die for! Of course we had leftovers and no room for desert - tiramisu next time!

    I had reserved a table for 13 online; it was super easy and they called me the next morning to confirm my attendance and total coming. The area that they sat us was out of the way from the rest of the resturant. I was a little worried that we would have been forgotten in that room but our waiters (yes more than one) were very attentive our glasses never emptied. The food took a lot longer than we had anticipatied and they had come to say sorry and explained that the food went to the wrong table. Even with that mishap not once did I feel that we were not being attended to. The service was great and the food was worth waiting that extra few minutes. We were given a free dessert for the trouble; that said the Tiramisu is highly recommended.

    Overall our dining experience was great. Food was fantastic and plentiful, with plenty of leftovers for another meal. I have always loved the ambience of Buca di Beppo, but I was disappointed that they tried to pack every patron in the same dining room which caused the A/C to go into overtime and froze up making the room extremely hot. The poor waiter, which by the way was awesome, was tasked with tending to every single table one of which was a party of 30. Had they tried to spread us out or at least apologize to us I would have given 5 stars.

    Would not go back. Too expensive for the bland, unremarkable food. The chicken Marsala tasted like a sweet corn starch sauce instead of Marsala wine. Alfredo was bland. Lasagna was good. Antipasto salad had too much dressing and very little salami and cheese. We were celebrating Mothers Day but we would have rather eaten Mom's good food.

    Went for our daughters 21st birthday. First time we ever went b/c we've always heard good things. They were not busy 5 tables other than us. Took 20 minutes to get drinks after they were ordered, another 20 minutes to get salad 30 minutes to get bread god came out cold and lasagna was burnt. Got refills one time for drinks and 35 minutes to get 3 desserts. Waitress was horrible. Total bad experience. We will never go back which is sad because we were so excited to try it.

    This is not even an Olive Garden knock off and that's saying something. Go to a Carrabba's instead of you're going to eat commercial. This was a place that we tried to Valentine's Day and it was horrible. Little variation in the pasta, very bland, no formal napkins or anything. Italian food is to this place as Pizza Hut is to pizza.

    First time dinner turned out to be a disappointment. Both our food was luke warm and tasteless. Additionally mine was not crispy as it should be. Wife's dish missed key ingredients. Granted we were there on a really busy day but expect atleast the food to be good if not the service. The atmosphere was cozy but I felt a bit stuffy inside due to low ceiling. I will surely give them another try just to be sure the bad experience was not just a one time deal.

    After recieving an e-mail from Buca di Beppo about their Valentines Day special I decided to make a reservation for 5:45 that was avaliable. Getting there 5 min before my time we were seated right away. After being seated we noticed that they handed us regular menus with no indication of the special & asked the waitress that we would like the special. She said she did not know about a special and went to ask the mgr. When she came back with our drinks she informed us that they are not participating in the special. We were just floored and asked we needed a few minutes. After cking the Chandler location website there was the advertised special. We felt that they were doing a bait and switch so we walked out. We had a great dinner at Nellos !

    Going to Buca Di Beppo and sit in the kitchen to celebrate my family member's birthday has been a tradition in our family. Food is always excellent and servers are very friendly and caring. We always have a reservation and they are very good with keeping up the time. However, this time we had to wait for 30 mins beyond our reservation time to be seated in our table and I wasn't happy with this arrangement.

    Well, I normally eat over at the Buca di Beppo in Mesa and have always had amazing servers. This location was a joke. I was taking a colleague and his wife to dinner and had requested their "specialty cake" in advance and no one had a record of this??? I ordered 2 orders of mussels in wine and mozzarella sticks to start and allowed my guests to order anything they wanted. Long story short the bill was only about 200.00 and I was the one paying and not once did my waitress ever give me eye contact and/or ask to refresh my drink. She kept looking to my colleague for all instructions? Number one, never under estimate who is paying the bill and number two might want to take a course in customer service skills.

    The portion sizes are huge. There were only two of us and we had to agree on the main course, since it was served buffet style. We shared a salad and a main dish and STILL had tons left over. I would have preferred my own entrée, as we have different tastes (vegetarian versus carnivore). We received a gift card, which is why we went. I don't think we would go on our own dime. We were seated in the kitchen, which might be fun for families with kids, but I felt like I was in a fishbowl, with everyone staring as they walked by. The food was very good and our service was fantastic, but just not a place we'd return to.

    Waitress forgot to put in our order. We ordered before a 10 top next to us and it took a full 15 minutes more for us to get out main course. There was staff going back and forth to a outside area to smoke so the temperature and the smell of the room changed often. There was also a large blender like sound going on behind our table. I wont sit in that room again.

    This is our familys 3rd Christmas dinner at Bucas. The last 2 years were at the downtown Seattle location. This was our first year eating at Bucas in Chandler. The food was great as usual, but the service was very poor. I am not a complainer, but she was not able to take care of our table . I would even say she was rude and not able to focus at all. I am sure others must have complained as well.. Thank you, Barb Stone
