  • "We were looking forward to a good lunch as we had on previous visits. The resturant was empty which was a change from before. The food was not as good. The chicken parm was overcooked and cold and the chicken carbonara tasted old, chicken was rubbery. Hope they improve."

  • "I'm glad I finally made reservations myself, or my husband may never have went. But the entire experience was outstanding. Thanks to my daughter giving us generous gift card, we were able to try Buca. We will return, great food and atmosphere. My only suggestion, loud laughing guests should be seated in bar area, it was a little too loud, but will not stop me from coming back. Thank you for lovely Wedding Anniversary dinner, I have been searching for good Italian food."

  • "The restaurant itself was gorgeous! The customer service was amazing and the food was phenomenal. I had the lasagna and I think it was the best lasagna I ever had and my husband said it was great Italian food."

  • "We were celebrating my daughter's acceptance into a special program into college. The Pope room is a perfect place to have a bit of privacy and a lot of fun! Our server was sunny and very patient with the fifteen of us. The food was great. I recommend Buca, especially the Pope room for your next celebration if you are looking for good food and a good value."

    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "The food was fair, nothing special. It is similar to what is served at Fazoli's. There really is no savings in the family style since the servings are about $10/person for just the main course and everything is ala carte. It was loud in the room and there were multiple large parties seated right next to each other. There were not many people in the restaurant so this could have been managed differently. The tables are long banquet style making it hard to interact or pass food dishes. The server didn't explain the menu, make suggestions or clear the table. It wasn't a good experience and not a good place to celebrate a special occassion with a group."

  • "Our dining experience started out a little bumpy. After speaking with a manager our experience and meal was excellent. Definitely get more bang for your bucks and you feel like your at home."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "The food is consistently good. The lasagna is the best I have ever had. Food is served family style but a small portion is good for 2 and a large portion good for 4-5 people."

  • "A little wait even with a reservation. Four people could order a large and eat well. Overall delicious food."

  • "Had a great time. Was with a group of nine women. Our waitress was wonderful and took care of each one of us very professionally as well as being very friendly. There was a wait on my particular entrée and without any sign of stress she advised me that the manager was going to take my meal off my bill because she told him I had been waiting while all the other women had been served. Now that is service! I love coming to Buca's because of the fun atmosphere and great food"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Food was outstanding as always. Service was okay, server was friendly however not overly attentive. Restaurant was so loud that we could not hear conversation at our own table. When we got there the hostess was cold and very rude. Its understandable that it was dinner time on a Saturday evening, but her rude behaviour was a turn off to those walking in the restaurant and all of those that were standing there waiting on tables. We love Bucca, but we have definitely had better service in the past."

  • "Party of 9 of us for my mom's 60th birthday. We got right in our reservation on a very crowded night with no issues. They sat us in the Frank Sinatra room. Food was promptly served and everything was delicious. Our wait or was amazing and kept all drinks filled and bellies full. Very memorable for my mom. She called it the best birthday yet. Thanks Buca di Beppo!"

  • "Went to Buca di Beppo's for my daughter's 23 birthday. Our first waiter seemed more interested in everything else but our order. Initially, he erred in regards to our drink order (only ordered 2 drinks) and then totally messed up our salad order and forgot to put in our entree orders. To Bucs's benefit, they realized this pretty quick and changed out waiters. Once this was done, the experience was great."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Ordered two pasta dishes which were just ok - and pricey for what you get. The greens salad is always good but too many onions! The dessert (Mt Vesuvius) was not good - the cake was VERY dry and hard and needed more ice cream to soften it up! Too pricey overall for the quality you get! Asked the server several times for things before she brought them"

  • "An ordinary great meal turned spectacular when we wound up eating in the kitchen; an unforgettable experience enhanced by great food and friendly efficient service."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "Too much hype and not enough good food. Sure, the servings are huge, but the flavor lacks. $16 and change for an order of bread that was cold and relatively tasteless. Veggie lasagna was good, but not good enough to make me put up with the high prices and lack of flavor in everything else. Won't be going back :("
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Fortunately the food was worth the wait. Bring your appetite because you will need it. The portions were good for sharing, though not an overwhelming amount. The desserts were huge. We will definately be back."

  • "On my birthday my lovely spouse said she would take me out to dinner anywhere I wished. I chose Buca de Beppo. Upon entering we were immediatelyy greeeted warmly by the hostess and led to our table. Our server was excellent as was our food. We ordered Ceaser salad, garlic bread, side of spaghetti with one huge and delicious meatball and Limone Chciken. All very tasty and satisfying with plenty to take home. Can't wait to go back."

  • "We went for my dads birthday and we were seated in a back room by two huge groups of young teenage girls and another group of loud men. These girls and men were so loud that we could not even talk to each other or our waiter. We had a horrible dining experience. I expect a little noise but what we were seated next to was just too much. Not what I wanted for my dads birthday. Our waiter on the other hand was great and the food was good. Do not think we will be back because of our experience and I would not recommend it to our family or friends. We spent a lot of money and just wish we could have enjoyed my dads birthday."

  • "Food is always great and plentiful! Looking forward to ging back soon."

  • "This was a great night overall. I am so glad we made our reservation because it was very busy. We made the reservation on Open Table at 8PM for 830PM dining time and were seated within 5 mins of walking in. Others who walked in behind us without a reservation had a 2 1/2 hr wait. Our friendly was friendly and happy to make helpful suggestions. The food was better than I was anticipating, everything was delicious. We ordered the Quattro Al Forno and I was concerned that all of the shell options were going to taste the same, but each had a unique flavor. The prices were higher than I think the experience is worth; however, we had a coupon. I will visit for lunch in the future."

  • "We we booked our reservation - we stated that it was our anniversary and according to the e-club pop up if it was your anniversary there was a "gift". However our server did not take care of that even though I told him 3 times."

  • "My wife and I attended Buca on Valentine's Day before we headed to the theater. The atmosphere of the entire place was festive and very welcoming. Our server was prompt and knowledgeable. She recommended a few wine choices, which was great because I am a novice at best. Our food and drinks were fantastic. I could have stayed all night and been perfectly content with the evening. It was great for a couple on Valentine's Day, and I would love to go again with a big group of friends. I'm sure the experience would be just as enjoyable."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Great place, great food. Service was a little off for it not to be so busy. It seems our waitress had tables away from ours which made it difficult for her to have time for us. Still loved the evening and she was great to us."

  • "Definitely worth the drive from the Dayton area, but how about opening one here. A fun and delicious place for our birthday celebration."

  • "We visited on a Sunday evening, and were seated right away. The hostess gave us the tour through the kitchen. It was neat to see and each employee who passed said hello and smiled! We ordered cheesy garlic bread. My date thought it was wonderful; it was a little too garlicy for me. We ordered the small baked ziti and added chicken. It was perfect! The pasta was al dente, the chicken was tender, the amount of sauce was just right, and the cheese was melty and gooey. Our waitresses was just the right degree of attentive. We were seated near the end of the bar, and some of the waitstaff gathered there to chat, and got a little loud. The discussion was not inappropriate, it was just too loud for the space and ruined the mood a little."

  • "I made reservations for 10 people and the table that we reserved for us only seated 8. When our last 2 people showed up (my inlaws and it was my father in laws birthday), there was not enough room for them at the table. A 2 seater table was brought that wobbled so badly, that had to be removed. A 4 topper table was brought over eventually, but by the time the table situation was resolved, my in laws were very upset and it was very hard to smooth over the rest of the evening. Management did a very poor job in trying to resolve our issue. Our server performed much better than the manager. We received nothing for our inconvenience and our birthday celebration evening was ruined."
