- Superior ServiceJG1946Dined on 11/14/2014The food was very good, the dessert was "to kill for"..and I did! But, the evening was mostly set by the absolutely amazing attention given by the server. She was delightful, helpful and we even decided to book our Thanksgiving dinner reservation with her. Great experience.I would recommend this to a friend.

- Good home style Italian food.LocalfoodieVIPDined on 11/7/2014The food is consistently good. The service is good though on this occasion our waiter was busy with a large group and was not able to return with plates when our entrees came. With only my husband and we we find it e pensive. Always extra food to take home but $100 for two is fine dining prices for home style food. Better for families and groups the couples.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Overall Experience.dinner4UDined on 10/25/2014I think that the only thing I would change is the temperature of the food. I like my food that is served to be hot and ours was warm. We had great service though. We went at an earlier time so that we would not bother others with our 20 month old and 4 week old. Everyone was very accommodating.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice atmosphereSmilinladyDined on 10/10/2014I like the decor and I like the family gathering theme but the food was not that tasty. Definitely needed seasoning in all the dishes we ordered.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great food and service!!Lisa70Dined on 8/10/2014We 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ConsistencynatflvrDined on 8/7/2014The 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Worse service I have ever hadCucuDined on 7/25/2014Always 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.Special Features:
- A birthday treat.meiwedineDined on 7/4/2014Buca 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Good home style ItalianLocalfoodieVIPDined on 6/28/2014We always order to much. The bill was $300 for 8 adults 2 kids. Delicious but pricey. New seasonal salad was very nice. Love the eggplant and chicken saltiboca.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Goin' out for Father's Day!luv2dineDined on 6/15/2014My 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Groups WelcomedJoGroupPartyDined on 6/6/2014I 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.Special Features:
- Fabulous!BennettherdDined on 5/24/2014We showed up with 10 hungry people and a celebration to be had! Our waitress was attentive without stalking, prompt with the food order, and matched our jubilant attitudes! The food was amazing, plentiful, and HOT when served!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- GreatDined on 5/24/2014Overall 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.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/24/2014Great place and great food love it and will recommend it to everyone i know.Special Features:
- Disappointing Italian FoodEatinoutDined on 5/11/2014Would 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.
- A Family GatheringVolumeEaterDined on 5/11/2014I must say that Buca is my go to favorite when celebrating a family event. I had my mom's 84th birthday as well as a Confirmation celebration and Mother's Day lunches. Service is great and very attentive. Food is always the best.Special Features:

- 100% horrible experienceMaryDined on 3/16/2014Went 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.Special Features:
- Bland pasta.OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 2/14/2014This 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.Special Features:
- Need to give buca-chandler anotherJayZDined on 2/14/2014First 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- our family had a good time.philcDined on 2/14/2014our family had a good time. our server MEGAN was outstaning. one item to note is that we sat in a nice area in the restaurant, but by chance a large group of twenty people ended up sitting by us after we were sat and created a loud background.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A Bloody Valentine !!LostValentineDined on 2/14/2014After 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 !
- Bad foodPatsamDined on 2/14/2014We ordered the baked rig the pasta was hard and dry cold in the middle hard and dry on the outer edge
- Great place to eatMikeDined on 1/27/2014Took my wife for her birthday dinner, with our Son and his fiancé. The waiter was great. He was friendly and very helpful. The food was outstanding. Everyone was friendly, and we will come back for dinners in the future. Overall just a great experience!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Going to Buca Di Beppo andCCCCDined on 1/12/2014Going 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.I would recommend this to a friend.
- WoW ... not!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 1/12/2014Well, 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.
