Diner Reviews
  • "I went for my birthday and was very impressed. Great servers. Great food and I loved the environment my only complaint was the table was small for our group."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "I hadn't been to Buca di Beppo in years. I decided to try it again and took the family, knowing the family-style service. The atmosphere and setting are still as great as ever with a real homey and welcoming feel. But I was a bit disappointed with the price vs quality of the food. The tomato-based sauces we ordered were a bit weak on flavor and didn't really integrate with the pasta very well. The cream-based entree with chicken was excellent."

  • "We don't live in SL County so have not experience Buca de Beppo in Utah very often, but we have eaten there in other cities when we are on vacation. It was a fun and tasty experience. I noticed a large round table there, which means I with a group of my friends will probably give that table a try. Round tables are nice for a group."

  • "With the family style servings, a group setting plays nicely here. We had a lovely graduation dinner for our son."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "We go here often but I can't understand why they continually try to sit a party of 15 on a table built for 10. There were 14 chairs and the hostess disappeared before we were seated. Finally I found someone to complain to and they put us in another room that was completely empty! Why not put us there in the first place? Last visit our party of 15 was put in 4 different BOOTHS. Kinda hard to eat family style this way. Impossible to converse. This was not a good time. I won't be back unless the Pope table is available. Then it's a nice time."

  • "Buca di Beppo is my absolute favorite! I have always had an excellent experience each visit, and this one - although one of the busiest times I'd ever come, was really no exception. The kitchen was unusually busy, and we had some problems with a few of our menu items, the servers were running as fast as they could trying to take care of large crowds in every room...but whatever the problem or obstacle, each one was worked through and still was a wonderful experience overall. Thanks guys...we'll be back soon!"

  • "I decided to let "Buca" do the cooking for me this Easter...oh, and the dishes and everything that goes with it! We made a reservation for our family late afternoon. The service was above and beyond! The food was even better than the last time we came...and the only thing I was sorry about was I couldn't eat EVERYTHING set before me! Thank you so much for making this my absolute favorite place of all! You guys are awesome! "

  • "I made a reservation 4 weeks in advance for a very special occasion. I was so excited for our family to try the restaurant, almost all had never been there. Our waitress really ruined our experience. From the moment we sat done, she was rushing to get us out. I know it can be busy there but that is why i made a reservation and let the restaurant know we would be a party of 14. the food was great, but her service was awful. i am disappointed that i chose the restaurant for our special occasion because my family was not pleased."

  • "No category for cost. Even the half meals are quite expensive for what you get. $22.99 for 3 pieces of Chicken Saltimbocca is very expensive."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Our server was by far the worst I've ever had and I go to Bucca quite often. It was my birthday and I wanted things to go right and she was just slow, and didn't really take care of us."

  • "This was a fun night out for us before the movies. Order was taken quickly, cold food cold & Hot food hot and fast."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "This place is delicious. The family style dining makes it easy to order too much food, but leftovers reheat well. I recommend coming with a group of folks who bring cash to make checking out easier (then you don't have the hassle of splitting up the check funky). I will go again, I'm sure!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Since the food is meant to be shared it allowed everyone to try a sample of a few different plates, which was nice."

  • "I took my girlfriend here for Valentines Day and was extremely impressed. Once we were seated we were just looking at the menu and enjoying the decorations when a manager came by and asked if our server had been with us, when we replied "no" he promptly took our drink order. After he took our drinks our server came over and was completely apologetic for taking so long (which actually wasn't long at all). She was extremely polite, knowledgable, and attentive. The food was amazing and was brought to us extremely fast! At the end of our meal our server apologized for the wait again which was very kind, though it was no problem at all. Great experience with great staff. This will definitely be on our favorites list!"

  • "Our family greatly enjoyed the evening - food was great, very relaxing atmosphere and fantastic service. Well priced - great value - highly recommend."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Our food and the service was very good, however, I scored the service as only good because of the greeter when we arrived. We had an Open Table reservation for 5:30pm and while we were greeted politely we were not seated before two groups, larger than our group of 4, who were seated even though they arrived after we did. Only after we noted to the greeter, host that we had a reservation did he day we were next to be seated. For me that is not the way to treat the guests who have thought ahead and made a reservation. That was disappointing for sure."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "This is a great restaurant for families or groups. Love the fun atmosphere and for a chain, the food was actually good -- better than Olive Garden."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We enjoyed dinner as an extended family during our Christmas vacation. The food was wonderful and was served very quickly.. Service was great most of the meal, but once we'd been eating a little while, it lagged a bit (some of us needed drink refills). And I did have to stop two different waiters before they automatically poured water in my Sprite. The second one actually did and had to bring me a new drink, but then forgot a straw. Overall, food was delicious as expected, and it was a fun atomosphere. I'll just have to remember to order water instead of soda next time."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "We have come to Buca the last three Christmas's and it was great. This time they were out of Calamari, which made my kids very upset that is why they want to go there. The pizza which is usually some of the best around was only ok and not worth the $30 it cost. The fettuchinni alfredo was terrible. This will be our last Christmas at Buca."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "We love Buca di Beppo, we've been there several but this vist was the worst experience we've had. The veal was very chewy, the pasta was bland and the server was not very friendly."

  • "The lady seating us knew it was our anniversary, yet she took us to a large table squished next to another large table- obviously meant for large groups. They tried to seat a large group next us, squishing them in next to us. We offered to move so the group could sit together, but were ignored. Then another lady came out and asked us to move. We were then placed at a booth across from an extremely large, loud, group. Several other customers asking to be moved due to the obnoxious group. They never asked the group to calm down. The chaos of the seating and the noise level ruined the romantic atmosphere. The food is excellent, though, and they did pay for our appetizer to apologize for all the disruptions, which we were impressed by."

  • "It has been awhile since we have been to Buca. The service was very good, with prompt attention and helpful advice/recommendations. The restaurant was clean, and even on a busy weekend night was not obnoxiously loud or crowded. The food was hit and miss. Everything tasted very good of course, but the spaghetti was dry and could have used some additional sauce. The other dish was very good but a small portion. In all, these would be minor concerns except for the price. Everything on the menu was expensive, hardly any dish was under 20 bucks. For that price, there is no excuse for it being anything less than perfect Italian food. So in summary, the experience was good, the food was good but the prices are too high."

  • "Fast, friendly service. Wonderful ambience. Delicious food. We were well taken care of. The proportions are very large."

  • "The chicken breasts for the prosciutto stuff chicken where so small they where close to cornish hen breasts"
    Dined on 10/11/2013
  • "The food is served family style so you may have to compromise with your date a bit. It is easy to over order so keep that in mind. The quality of the food was good, definitely italian american cuisine. The ambience is fun though quite garish with pictures, statues, and Christmas lights throughout. The service is what makes this place worth the visit. Ask for Boe and you will have a relaxing and humorous experience where your drink glasses are constantly filled and your table ladened with food."

  • "My wife and I have been eating at Buca di Beppo's for years when we lived in southern California so we were happy to find the Buca's at Fort Union when we moved here. The food is the same great food that was served in Claremont California but that was somewhat expected because this is a chain restaurant. What really makes Fort Union extra special is the wonderful servers they have there. Everyone is fun, kind and attentive. If you have a large group or a small group or just yourself or a couple the serving sizes at Buca's can be made to order. Their family sized serving are enormous. I love seafood so I get the Linguine Fruita di Mare which is very tasty. I have also had several of their pasta dishes and they are to die for."

  • "I love the quirky atmosphere that goes with truly excellent food. Never had a bad experience. One suggestion is they could use a little more space between tables. We always request a booth, so it isn't an issue, but you can get very close with neighboring parties if seated at the regular tables. The food makes up for any inconvenience of seating though. SO GOOD!!"

  • "Our waitress was ditzy.. forgot our order and had to come back to take it again. Kept saying she was coming with our drinks and disnt come back with more drinks or items such as sugar for our tea. We paid 100.00 for 5 people to eat the most bland Spaghetti I have ever tasted. No flavor whatsoever in the meat sauce and the chicken was ok but very dry. I guess you live and learn... My expectations were fair I felt going in... had never been before but wont be back. I do cook as a hobby and have over the years become quite good at it and I can make a big bowl of spaghetti with an amazing meat sauce for 5 people for around 12.00 ....35.00 is rediculous .. I also have not paid 8.00 for bread in a restaurant either."
