Diner Reviews
  • "This is not your typical restaurant where everyone receives an individual dish. Instead all the food is served family style and you serve yourself. They have two sizes: small size will serve 2 to 3 and the large size serves 4 or more. Serving sizes are very generous. Overall the food was really good. We shared an Apple Gorgonzola Salad, Spaghetti Marinara, Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken and a basket of Mozzarella Garlic Bread. The only caveat that I have about eating here is that if you go with just one or two other people you need to have similar tastes in food or expect to take home a lot of leftovers. I think this would be a fantastic restaurant to go to with a larger group so that you can order lots of different dishes to try."

  • "Great place to eat, if you don't mind a little noise. Food was great and we tried 4 different dishes shared among friends. We made reservations about 2 weeks in advance, but did not get a booth as we requested. Otherwise, everything was great, large portions, and we will return again!"

  • "We usually go to this restaurant to celebrate a birthday and always have a great time.The food, however has gone down. it is mostly pasta and the entrees are now served with heavy sauces. The food has become much blander as well. We will probably not return next year."

  • "I go to Buca in the Kentlands in Gaithersburg, MD whenever I can-it is my favorite restaurant and I always pick it as a meeting place for business and friends. Food is great, service is excellent, servings are generous and we always have a great time whether it is a business meeting or with friends."

  • "My husband and I went to dinner and ordered the Veal Marsala. The sauce was extremely sweet. It tasted like we were eating sugar. Also, the serving size stated 2-3 people. There were 3 small pieces of veal on the plate. That was actually enough for one person not 2. We did get a salad and a side order of pasta but sharing 3 small pieces of veal left us hungry when we left. If we had known that the portion size was so small we would have ordered 2 entrees. I will not go back again and do not recommend it. We were very disappointed because we had heard good things about the restaurant."

  • "My husband and I went to Buca di Beppo for a "date night" because I had an amazon local deal for $10 off. The food is good, but the price for two was a bit high in my opinion. I would think it would be better if you had a larger group."

  • "The place is large and can accommodate large parties. The food is served family style so portions are very large and meant to be shared. The food is good solid Italian. Nothing super fancy and you'll be happy with the quality and quantity. They also have drive up take out, which i think is a great addition and something I'll take advantage of in the future since I work nearby. My only "complaint" is the entire restaurant has a heavy stale food smell. The place could use a good carpet and fabric cleaning to get rid of the odor. Or better yet, replace it all and give the establishment a bit of a face lift."

  • "Phill is a great asset to Buca Gaithersburg. He made the meal enjoyable, in addition to the very tasty dishes we chose. We've never been disappointed so far in this place. Be sure to make reservations, though. It's large, but there will be a wait if you don't."

  • "service was a little strange [asked for waters when we sat, didn't get them until 20 minutes later, waiter was never there when we needed him, always there when we didn't, all of our first menu choices were not in supply], but food was good. Recommend the italian sodas for those with a sweet tooth."

  • "Still one of the safest bets for a group dinner. Especially if you have mixed ages, tastes, food preferences......always something for everyone and family style helps with the fun!"

  • "Since Buca di Beppo is a chain restaurant most people are probably well aware of what they'll be getting when they go for dinner. The serving sizes are huge for the large family size. The food is good. It's not high-end Italian but it doesn't propose to be. It's just good, down-home family food."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Great food! Fun atmosphere . Wherever you look there are pictures of Italy, families having fun...it keeps the conversation going and, the way the rooms are arranged you can hear each other across the table without straining. The portions are plentiful, which means that you'll probably Buca leftovers for dinner the next day. My wife asked to go here for Valentines Day and I was able to make a reservation. We will be back."

  • "The original table (booth) that was reserved for us was not adequate for my wife at the time because she had just had knee surgery 2 days prior to our reservation and our hostess found us a suitable table right away that was easy for my wife to be seated comfortably. Excellent!!"

  • "Although we were surprised at the decline in service, our overall experience continues to be compelling, and this is our go-to restaurant for family events. We have such a great time whenever we eat here. The flavorful, large family portions; great value, kitschy atmosphere, and easy access and free parking continue to make this a great place for large groups."

  • "Dining experience itself wonderful. Coupon experience misleading. We had purchased a gift card in December so that we received what was presented as a $15.00 gift card for free. When we tried to use the $15 gift card we were told that although it looked like a gift card, it was really a coupon and could not be used with the email coupon we were using. If a special offer is a coupon and not a gift card, it should be advertised as such."

  • "We had to wait an hour in a half to be seated, even with our reservation. Then we waited a long time for our waiter to ask what drinks we wanted. We got no free bread that night. I feel like because we are two teenagers, we do not get the same service. Our previous time there our waitress kept telling us to,be quiet whenever we tried to get her attention, and she did not give us the correct food,and we did not get the right food until the front of house came. My boyfriend and I used to come here for all our special events because we love the food so much. But now I think it'll a while before we come back. We may be teenagers, but we're paying customers and we tip 15% and above, think about that."

  • "Our family had dinner to mark our daughter-in- law's birthday. We ordered 3 family-style dishes for the adults, individual plates for each of the children. The salad (apples +garganzola cheese) was excellent -- as was the fried mozzarella . Entrees were fairly good, though only the salmon was oustanding. Drinks were not notable --Pitcher of Sangria-- besides missing fruit -- included only a few cherries --and was watery and weak. We asked the server to take the pitcher back. (Charge was removed from our bill.) One of us ordered a glass of iced tea-lemonade combination -- that drink, too, was watery and weak . To complete the evening we shared the brownie sundae -- all enjoyed (although a few of us found the brownies on the hard side)."

  • "We absolutely love the food and the service but all three times we've gone in the last year it has been unbearably hot in the restaurant. By the time your hot food gets there you're too hot to eat hot food. We usually end up changing our order to go."

  • "Buca di Beppo is one of the very few restaurants in the Gaithersburg area that allowed me to make a reservation for 20 people through open table for a last - minute reunion of college friends. Great service, good food, very accommodating to our large group that included a lot of children!"

  • "This is the second New Years we have spent there and will be the last. Last year we asked for a salad without meat in it and it came with meat in the bottom. This year the oven broke down so we had to wait quite a while for our meal. They did give a good discount to compensate. Food wasn't that great anyway."

  • "Reservation was for the kitchen table at 7:30, was seated at on time with a smile. I love the kitchen table, you get to experience the heart of a restaurant up close & personal. Our server was bit uptight at first but completely softened up during the course of our meal. There isn't really a light fare on the menu but the manager was accommodating by allowing me to order a lunch sized portion instead. Mussels in white wine sauce was great. Chicken Parmesan, pepperoni pizza, baked ziti w/ meatballs & spicy chicken rigatoni. All of which were good and shareable!! The desserts are huge and looked scrumptious!! Good food, Great place, great atmosphere... will be back soon."

  • "We ended up here when our plans changed and this was the only restaurant we could find open on Christmas Day. Wow! After only one visit, this has become one of our favorite restaurants! The manager came over to ask if everything was OK, and the staff could not have been nicer. The portions were huge, the prices reasonable, and the food delicious. Four of us shared the Colossal Brownie Sundae, and we were all stuffed--quite a bargain at only around $3.25 per person. Just a few very minor issues kept us from rating this place at 5 stars. First, the Mixed Green Salad had way too many red onions and not enough of other veggies. Also the wait staff did not seem to know how the dishes were prepared. Other than that--great restaurant!"

  • "The calamari was good, the Italian wedding soup was totally different that what we've been accustomed to, the caesar salad was good, the pizza was quite salty. Overall, the food was good. As for other observations, the menus could use some wiping down. I did not use salt, but the pepper grinder was very sticky at the table where we sat. Perhaps, in addition to wiping down the table after guests, a good cleaning for the other items on the table is also in order?!"

  • "My wife and I thought the food was exceptional and the service good on a busy afternoon. From China, my wife has had little experience with Italian food and thought each dish was the best Italian food she had ever tasted, and a lot better than the frozen Italian foods we get at the grocery store. She told the waiter that. We always ordered small sizes, but the portions were still quite large, and we ended up taking home most of what we ordered"
