    You must order family style to begin with. Bruschetta was bad, hard, stale crustini not edible. Spaghetti worst ever had. Bland, tasteless. Could get better from a can! Very expensive for bad food and would not recommend.

    We made our reservation for 7:45pm and showed up at 7:40pm. The hostess told us she did not have a reservation for us and the wait time was 1 hour and 40 min to be seated. I told them we made the reservation and attempted to find the confirmation. She then found it and proceeded to tell us she still couldn't seat us but to come back at 8:15pm and she would have a table for us. We came back at 8:10pm and we're not seated until 8:20pm. Our server was great!

    We recently enjoyed our group dinner of 11 at Buca di Beppo at the Excalibur Hotel in Las Vegas. The ambiance was good and had some of the stylings as the Buca di Beppo in Santa Monica, CA. The wait staff were great and very energetic (maybe a little too energetic). We all got our food in a timely fashion. I have to say that I did not think that the food at this location was as good as the food in the Santa Monica location (nor the ambiance, but it is Las Vegas and you just can't get Italy in Las Vegas - unless you are in the Venetian). The spaghetti and meatballs were rather dry. I wanted to ask the waiter for more marinara but didn't want to upset the group with my need for edible food.

    A small group of friends and I celebrated my girlfriends birthday at Buca Di Beppo in the Excalibur and shared a wonderful family style Italian dinner in their Pope room. The setting was very unique because it was amidst the crowd and yet very private all at the same time. The service was outstanding, and the food was great. Sitting at a big round table meant that we all could converse with one another at all times. It was an outstanding venue for a small party! I highly recommend it!

    Quality of service was below par most likely due to the "4 for $40" coupon that was brought in. Subpar service, misinformed about many items and drinks. In the past at other locations, I have experienced much better service and had recommended this restaurant. If I was to recommend this restaurant, it wouldn't be at this location.

    Had the veal parmagien. It was absolutely awful. Ordered spaghetti and mariana sauce, but only received the sauce. Overall very disappointed for the price and quality of the food. When we finally got out spaghetti I thought it came out of a bag and the sauce out of a can. I wouldn't even know I was eating veal it was chewy and gross. Place had a relax feel.

    We went for our Anniversary to have Lasagna. It was so small, it stated for two or more people but not even enough for one person. We were hungry when we left. We also noticed it was warm not hot! Terrible portion size stay home. I wanted to leave and buy a Lasagna at Sam's club better quality and portion size and hot than your overpriced, inadequate food. This is the worst lasagna I have ever paid for. This will be our last visit. Please cancel me from your e-mail list. I was ashamed for eating there, as a corporation you should be embarrassed to serve this inferior food in the city of buffets and fine dining. Shame on you to rob the people in Vegas without even using a gun. Told manager he wanted us to buy the large instead.

    We were told the portions were huge so we didnt get an appetizer...the bread and piece of lasagna "for 2 or more" came out together about 5 minutes after we ordered so I would say it is fast food at sit down prices, and the size was not that huge. We were done in 25 minutes and $50 with beer & wine and still hungry. I would not recommend.

    We were looking for a reasonable Italian restaurant in LV. Having visited another Buca location years past we decided to give it a try. As high energy as the Excalibur is we were seated in a booth off of the main section and it was quiet and private which was good. The food was as we remembered it and that was "Tasty and Abundant". We were well satisfied with the whole experience. The waiter was cordial and attentive.

    We really enjoyed eating at Buca! We had never been there before and were very happy we chose to dine there. The food was delicious and the portions were huge! We appreciated our server telling us the pastas were made to share. Sharing made it a very affordable meal. The service was great and we didn't have to wait long for our food. We also like the ambiance.

    To save time make a reservation. They will not disappoint. I was surprised to learn that they have a more limited menu than my hometown Buca. I would guess they offer about 75% of what other locations offer. All of their food is great so not really a concern, but if you have your heart set on something phone ahead. Pickup a gift card at Sam's or Costco to save 20%-25%.

    I have been to one other Buca; the Excalibur site experience was disappointing. The two things that went well were the Open Table reservation and the salad preparation. The salad was done perfectly, but the bread was cold and a bit tough. Restaurant was not busy, but it was about a half-hour before we even got the salad! The entree arrived well after we 'd finished the salad. The Veal Marsala? Horrible. A "Marsala" dish is supposed to include a gravy made of sauteed mushrooms, butter, and marsala wine. The sauce we were served was a weak, sticky, sweet SYRUP; the mushrooms were clearly from a can and had NOT been browned at all. It reminded us of food-court Chinese, but not as good. We saw the annoying photographer more than our waitress.

    The food was superb! Serving sizes were enormous! We had 6 people and still had tons of leftovers. The restaurant atmosphere was ok. They tried to make it look like Italy a bit. The service was 'eh'. She only came to check on us twice or so, didn't refill drinks unless we asked, and messed up on half our order. Overall, the food is amazing, but don't expect much from the servers.

    I would have gave this a better rating if we had more than just me and wife eating there..while the food was good(the pasta was cooked a little to el dente for for wife) the portion size was so large (and they do state it is family style and the small serves 2-4) it just seemed almost wasteful as we could not hardly put a dent in it..they really should offer another size just for couples..Putting that aside prices were in the ball park for upscale Italian food

    i hated this place. i went for my birthday. I made sure to leave special requests to have a table away from the kitchen and ended up being seated directly next to it. i mentioned it was my birthday in the request as well as requesting an experienced server. our server was beyond poor. he clearly couldn't count the number of people in my party because when we asked for glasses of water all around, we brought 5 instead of 9. i decided to order a beer, after which the server carded me. he clearly didn't even read the date because he didn't say happy birthday, so instead i ordered sprite. the service was slow and inefficient. i will NEVER visit this place again! lastly, an obnoxiously loud group sitting next to us was never asked to quiet down.
