    It took 2 hours to eat, with 5 children - way too long a wait. Also had 2 checks with 2 coupons(4 for $40), would not honor the second until we threatened to leave and never come back. Coupons said nothing about 1 per table. Finally was resolved to our satisfaction. Food was good once we got it.

    I truly enjoyed my experience at Buca. My only request is that something be done about the table lighting. In the past, I have noticed the dark spots at tables but not until this visit had I been a victim. Unfortunately, my table was far too dim for my liking. The service and food more than made up for the lighting and, as always, I have enjoyed my experience and will continue to look forward to visiting.

    Not the first time dining here as my husband likes this chicken and pasta dish with a light tomato cream sauce. I myself prefer a more ecclectric instead of your normal Italian menu. The ambience is great though with so much memorabilia. Worth a trip

    My wife can make this meal for a 1/3 of the cost. There are so many better Italian restaurants in the neighborhood that are much less money. We ordered the Chicken Marsala and it tasted like a honey chicken dish from a Chinese restaurant. All of the servers welcomed us as we came in the restaurant and they are overly friendly, but not worth paying for the mediocre frozen dinner tasting Italian food.

    We had a retirement luncheon for someone from work here and had a great time. It was very quiet---we were seated at a table for eight and had a practically private room. The hostess and waitresses helped us with our choices for food. It was delicious and we were not rushed but stayed to talk a long time after we finished the salad with apples and gorgonzola, eggplant parm, lemon chicken, and baked "ziti" made with whole grain penne. Price was reasonable.

    This was the choice my two grandsons had when I told them I wanted a celebration dinner for their graduation. Our group included their mom and step dad, two baby sisters ages 3 and 11 months. We didn't have to wait and the little ones behaved very well with the 11 month old making it almost to the end in her high chair. I was appreciative that I could reserve on line and that you take reservations for groups. We over-ordered, especially with the salad, but that was our fault. I love, love, love your plain warm bread and butter. I actually liked it better than the garlic bread and that is very unusual for me because I am a garlic bread addict! It was overall a lovely evening.

    Although they added small dishes some time ago, they still do not offer small enough plates for two people to have some choice and to enjoy a meal. All dishes are big enough for at least two very hungry people or for three persons. The wine that comes in carafes is also too large for two people. We felt overwhelmed with all of the food and wine. Also, they give you some plain bread but offer garlic bread for a high price. That should either be a nominal fee or be included. The food was good and if it were in normal portions at normal prices, couples could enjoy themselves here. As it is, we will not return unless we come with a third person or another couple, and then we would have to order very carefully.

    The Davie Buca di Beppo was great. We had a wonderful meal and the service was awesome. He had a few suggetions for us and we went with it. Glad we did as the meal was great. We have had a few bad times at another location, but the Davie made us want to return to this particular restaurant again and again.

    Atmosphere, food were good, Service could have been better....we were having a birthday celebration with 11 people and there was one waitress. She brought the drinks & set them on the front of table...did not even call out so we knew what was what. The the drinks got confused & we ended up having to ask for 1, then she added it again to the bill. There should have been 2 servers for such a large group. Never asked to help with serving cake, & minor issues. Atmosphere excellent, main complaint was service... maybe she just needed help. Also wasn't friendly...never smiled, never wished Happy Birthday or asked if we needed drink refills. It was a memorable birthday celebration , just wish the service and friendliness were better.

    Even with a reservation party of 22 had to wait 20 min to be seated. We were crammed into a tiny table and sat so close to each other we couldn't pass the food. One inexperienced waiter for 22 people. He dropped heavy salad tongs on birthday girl's neck then hit her on the head with a salad bowl as he dove to retrieve them. Later he ruined a guest's shirt with sauce. Food and drinks and refills took forever. Food order came out wrong and they argued with us over what we ordered. When meal was over it took them 20 minutes to find our own cake and bring it to us. Manager offered halfhearted apologies but no real help. He gave a discount but failed to hand out gift cards as he'd promised. Frankly I'd have comped the bill if I were him.

    We have dined at Buca Di Beppo many times, but this visit was not a good one. Maybe because it was Father's Day. We were seated in the way back of the restaurant, which was difficult because my brother is disabled and walks on crutches, even though I had a reservation. The light was out above us, so it was very dark. Waiter tried to fix it, but was unsuccessful. No bread was brought to the table. I could have asked for it , but should not have to. Chocolate cake was not fresh and waste of $13.00. waiter was nice, but it was a bad experience.

    Having been previously disappointed at another location, my girlfriend booked this for an early fathers day dinner. When we arrived it was somewhat chaotic (as a holiday would be), we waited in the bar and it appeared that we might have been lost in the shuffle. Once the manager, Greg? found out he immediately made it right assigning not only a server but the hostess and himself to ensure our visit was enjoyable. I will definitely visit this location again and would highly reccomend it. We saw families with kids as well and it certainly seemed accomodating. ... so much food we had lunch the next day... and the house white sangria is a winner.

    Our family goes to Buca every time it's family night. Generally, we take about 12-15 people. Everyone enjoys every item on the menu but, our favorites are the apple gorgonzola ensalata, the rigatoni and spaghetti with meatballs. And, we always close out dinner with the colossal brownie sundae - special occasion or not.

    We had great service and loved the food. The calamari appetizer and caprese appetizer was very good. Big portion and very fresh. Lasagna was outstanding. Shrimp with spinach was my favorite. Chicken in red sauce with curly pasta was delicious as well. Too full for desert but totally enjoyed the dining experience.

    Went to Buca di Beppo after my son's graduation. The service was fantastic and the food, as always, was amazing. We tried the new Spicy Chicken Rigatoni and it is now my new favorite dish. We also ordered the Baked Ziti, Chicken Marsala, and Chicken Limone. Both chicken dishes were tender and delicious. The Marsala has a little bit of a sweetness to the flavor and the Limone is my personal favorite of the two. My daughters loved the baked ziti. Overall, we all had a fantastic experience and will continue to patronize and recommend this restaurant.
