    Typically LOVE this restaurant. Not a big reviewer but the service was so awful at this restaurant, it was pathetic for what we paid for the cost of our meal. We arrived at 7:45, tables were clearing out, good amount of open tables. Got seated right away, with three kids. Then waited 20-25 minutes for a waiter to take our drink order. After 10-15 minutes, I politely asked two of the four waitresses who walked past our table twenty times if we could get our server. They all acted like we were not their table and they did not care. Finally a nice young man said he's get us drinks but that was it. Then after getting drinks and another 10-15 minutes, same waiter comes over and says he guesses he will be taking our tale after all, like someone forced him too. He was very kind and we were thankful to be getting our order placed. Our salad and food was delicious, enjoyed by all. I ordered a latte and after ten minutes was told it would be a 5-10 minute wait for machine to hear up. I said a regular coffee was fine and he spent five minutes running around trying to find a cup. ??? At that point we just asked for the check. No manager was present. We still left waiter 20% tip, we did not feel it was his fault, obviously POOR management and lots of rude waitresses.

    Great food and good friends made our visit special. We had an excellent shared meal that included baked pasta, stuffed chicken and huge meatballs - lots of food. This is my friends favorite restaurant, and he especially enjoys the great food and casual atmosphere. When making a reservation, I always ask for a table away from kid groups who can be noisy. The restaurant always accommodates.

    My granddaughter and I were both celebrating our birthdays with family and Buca was a nice halfway spot to meet. We had several of the large platters which was way too much food, but was so good that we all ate too much. We had a nice corner table which kept our group private. The desert platter was also way too much, but I am sure my family will enjoy the leftovers. We will be back.

    I chose this restaurant for my mother's 70th birthday gathering. There were 3 other birthday celebrations happening that same evening and we all were respectfully engaged in the sing a longs and well wishes for each other. This restaurant has a way of making you feel like the entire restaurant is family. The restaurant is tastefully decorated. The entire staff is warm and welcoming. The food is absolutely delicious from the salad to the dessert. There is absolutely nothing that I would change about my experience at Buca Di Beppo

    We had a 7:30 reservation but we're not seated until 7:50pm. We assumed the restaurant was really busy. When we were seated we realized the restaurant was not busy at all and there were plenty of open tables. I assume they were short on staff. Our waitress was great and so was the food.

    the restaurant was not busy. we had a reservation. we asked to be seated at a booth in the bar. No problem, they said. In the new booth, the light did not work; we could not read our menus. the base of the light was actually shattered; broken pieces were actually in the base of the chandelier. we were in the dark and no one noticed for 15 minutes. then we were moved to another booth where we sat without water or service for another 15 minutes. does this sound like less than ordinary responsiveness? the restaurant was not busy; there was plenty of open seating. Our second server tried to make amends with a free glass of $10.00 wine,but that did not assuage the wasted time or wounded feelings.

    We made a reservation on Saturday for that evening. It was quiet when we arrived, food and service was excellent. As we knew the portions were huge and easily made another dinner later in the week. By the time we left the dinner crowd was starting to pick up. Next time we will save room for desert.

    The experience was not a total loss but it was not as good as the other reviews led me to believe. Food was just ok, tried to order a bottle of their wine of the night and it was out, and the server gave us salad that she said was not complimentary. She didn't charge us, but I'm not sure why we would have been.

    We are regulars at Buca but this time the service was just OK. We didn't receive bread at all. We had to a keep asking for our wine as well and it was not busy when we went really at all. The food was amazing though. Loved it and our server was nice enough. Seemed flustered. Potatoes rosemary were soon dry!. Everything else was great.

  • A great place for a celebration
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 6/10/2014
    The family style fare (and also accommodations for a gluten-free diet for some) is great. The food is always consistently good. The atmosphere is great for a large group (although having the Pope spin around in the middle of the table is a bit unnerving and weird--yes, we were in the Pope Room); might we suggest that the Pope be moved to a corner or mounted on the wall. Having a statue (Pope or otherwise) staring at you and also obstructing the view of others across the room was a big drawback. Ambience and noise level would have been rated better otherwise. Overall, Buca is a good dining experience, lots of good food with good service and fun decor (except for what we noted).

    I had dinner at Buca di Beppo on June 7, 2014, with my former Fiancee.. He'd never been there before. I've been there a handful of times with my parents in the past, and I'd always liked it so I decided to take him here. The way I described Buca to him, was more like a place where the MOB would come dine incognito and have a stress free dinner. Bryan seemed to enjoy himself, but I think it was more the Décor` than anything that really surprised him. He's all about the ambience and the way people are that work in places/restaurants like Buca Di Beppo. I will be definitely coming back again before the summer is out!

    Our recent trip to Buca with two grandchildren was a success. They were kept happy while waiting for the food with puzzles, crayons and tic tac toe. We did not have to wait long for the food -- good timing, excellent waitress and wonderful spaghetti and chicken Parm. Buca does a great job with everything -- service, ambiance and food! We go there knowing we'll have the best food!

There are large, open booths which seat 4 to 6 nicely. Where else can you get a booth for a party of 6? Few people there for lunch so we were able to converse.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    Appreciated the table being ready for us when we arrived. Also was a plus that we had a 15 minute grace period, especially when family are coming from different directions and they themselves have busy lives. The meal was delicious, serviced efficiently and friendly. Each thought their choice was very good and we had a variety of foods. The apple salad was a big hit but also the Caesar was very good. Someone ordered the pizza for their bread which was shared with one in the party who was eight. Both thought it was delicious. I had the Chicken Saltimbotta, just the right amount of kick with the capers.

    Great restaurant for groups with a terrific variety of menu items serving 2 or 4. Our group of four finally decided on Ceasar salad, chicken parmigiana, and baked ziti. All were very good however I would have liked more cheese on the ziti. There was plenty to bring home leftovers. Chocolate chip cannolis and cheesecake for dessert were wonderful. Fun, bustling atmosphere and very attentive service.

    Surround yourself with old world Italian decor... tacky but fun. The walls will keep you entertained and amused. Excellent family style food experience at a reasonable price for all the food you get. Try anything with cheese as its home made... the cheese manicotti are unbelievable. Don't miss the half pound meatballs.. perfectly cooked with red sauce/gravy to die for. The family will love it. Reservations are a must. Enjoy!

    My husband and I, had visited there location a few timesin Philadelphia before it was closed down. We were surprised to learn that this had happened since this was going to be our new go to restaurant for special occasions and dates. However, after an relentless search we found the Exton location to the ideal location for the celebration of my graduation. Our group enjoyed their experience from the moment they entered the doors. Thank you, Buca diBeppo of Exton, PA!
