    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

  • Annoying waiter....bad service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 12/25/2013
    We sat for 15 minutes without any service. We got our drinks but no bread or water. My husband ordered a bottle of their house Chardonnay. He sampled it and sent it back, saying it tasted like Riesling...he was polite about it. The waiter was clueless, saying "Wow, I've never had anyone do that." After we finished the wine, he asked if we wanted another bottle--we said no and he said "probably good, cause that's a lot of wine you just drank"! Excuse me? He asked if we wanted desert and we said no. He then commented again that was probably good as we had eaten a lot. Huh?? I was going to complain but since it was Christmas, I did not.

    I took my son's family of five for dinner after a Christmas Eve movie. Our server was terrific in spite of the hectic amount of business. He was accommodating with the kids and maintained his sense of humor in spite of the fact that the kitchen must have been swamped. I was glad that there was an opportunity to make advance reservations because it was such a popular destination. Also I was happy that there was a gluten free menu to accommodate my food issues. We all left satisfied and happy - even the picky eaters in the group!!

    The whole experience seemed very rushed with no genuine concern for our satisfaction or to create an unforgettable experience. The waiter was friendly as he took our drink and appetizer order. The drinks came but the appetizers was the beginning of the end. after what seemed an eternity the 1st appetizer was dropped (20-30Min) we finished eating appetizer #1 when the waiter came back and said ....OH did the bruschetta not come out? Let me check..... 15 Minutes later he said he doesn't know what is taking so long . Meal came "Late" Waiter nowhere around, He gave our bread to another table, Asked 3 times during our dinner to box up our food, we were still eating! Never offer desert or coffee. Just rushed us out. His name Erie ? Terrible

    We had a location with a round booth and room for 2 high chairs. The kids were in a great location where other patrons weren't subjected to their activities at the table. The wait staff were accommodating and our waitress charmed the boys. The food was traditional Thanksgiving fare, but the green beans were scrumptious as was the stuffing, which I normally do not like. A+ on every aspect of our experience, including the two changes made to reservations with various employees on the phone. Everyone made our Thanksgiving a pleasant and tasty treat.

    We usually have a great experience at Buca. We've been there in years past for Thanksgiving dinner with no issues. However, this year was horrible. The food server was horrible. We had to request bread 4 times. Only half of our meal was brought to us - never receive any refills for our drinks. When we tried to pay, we were told we could only use one gift card when we had two $25 gift cards. Finally, he relented when we asked for a manager. The manager never came to see us. I understand it was Thanksgiving and it was busy. Maybe they should make sure their staff can handle the constant crowd on a busy holiday. There are other restaurants that are open on the holidays now. Maybe we will shop for a new one for Christmas!

    The food was fine we had the spicy rigatoni but it wasn't spicy at all. The chicken marsala didn't have enough sauce and was barely warm. We asked for our salad to have the dressing on the side which did not happen. The waiter eventually brought a new one but when we asked for more dressing on the side he never brought it. Our drinks were always empty Its been awaile since we have been at Buca and it will be a great while longer before we dine there again.

    Restaurant about half full. Evening started with 30 minute wait for our wine! Server said "sorry we are out of clean wine glasses" ! Manager later confirmed that to me. I guess nobody thought of serving the wine in another kind of glass (or removing some portion of the charges from the bill). The waiter had a nearby table of 10 women so pretty much ignored our table of 4. Food was decent and consistent with other Buca's. Corporate manager better take a close look at this one.

    Family dinner of 6 for my Mother's 96th birthday. Comfortable round table in a corner (we were originally put in a booth seating 6 but it would have been cramped and our request for a different table was accommodated). Server was helpful, attentive, and at the same time gave us sufficient privacy. Food was excellent. Everyone at our table remarked about the excellent food and service. We will definitely go back!

    This is a good all around eatery. The older couple I was with had allot diet restrictions. They couldn't be accommodated individually which meant the three small dishes we all shared were very blah. Plain pasta, plain salad, plain chicken Not the place to go for Diet restrictions unless your all on the same restriction. Service was very slow for our table this time. We went early...maybe our server was ramped up yet.

    Picture this two couples celebrating the birthday of the one they love .. When every other minute the person we could only describe as the "manager" would come look over our table to see if we were done eating??? She would glance over at us like "are you done yet"? After doing this several times ... Finally after the 7th time I speak up!!! " I think she wants us to leave cause she keeps coming and looking at the table to see where we are with eating" she glances over cause she hears you but just rolls her eyes like she needs the table. Well that didn't make us feel very welcomed and so we decided to leave ... Needless to say dessert was purchased at AJ's ... Will never go to that location again....

    The food was tasty and very authentically Italian. Family style eating is great for a birthday or other celebration and when we asked for a round table, we were quickly accommodated. My only complaint would be that a complimentary dessert (just a single serving) should be offered to the birthday person! It would have been a nice gesture. Crazy kitschy decor was fun!

    We were celebrating a family member birthday. The food was good, but the service was slow, had to wait a long time to even get water. We were never offered refills on the water. We had made reservations, yet they stuck us way in the back it was nice for us a family but the watiress had to slide into the booth area and she had to hand us our plates and such. We asked for ideas on sharing the meals,and we felt she should have suggested gettingt the small size dishes with the order of food. We felt like she didn't really care about what we order and instead just took the order. It wasn't a busy evening so it made us wonder where the watiress disapperared to. some of the dishes weren't very warm while others were alright.

    Though we ordered light, the staff was excellent, just the right amount of attention and not intrusive. We shared an apple-Gorgonzola salad with chicken added, bread and drinks. After a slight mix-up on the order, the server took care to explain how she had adjusted our bill. After a late lunch, we lingered to talk and catch up with things, eventually moving to the bar, and the servers continued to be attentive and non-intrusive, allowing us to continue our visit comfortably. I would recommend Buca di Peppo as a comfortable family kind of place for lunch, and beyond.

    Unfortunately I took my family of six to Buca di Beppo but after our tasty Italian Meal we were told nothing we ordered, none of our small plates nor large plates would be covered with the coupon. I ordered two large and two small and I was under the impression that one of our smalls would be covered. We were very disappointed and may not return to Buca. Although the food left a good taste in our mouth, the service did not.
