Diner Reviews
  • "The southern Italian cuisine that Buca di Beppo serves, and the schmaltzy floor to ceiling decor of gaudy colors and photographs of prominent and ordinary Italian-Americans from the 30's through the 70's are strong reminders of what life was like for any of us who grew up in either an Italian American family or neighborhood. Thick, zesty marinara sauce, savory pasta and basic red wines were always on hand when my Italian-American family gathered. Is the cuisine as good as my mom's, my aunt's, my cousin's....? No, but a very fair representation, Italian-American comfort food, without the guilt of fast food. Buca is a welcome spot for all of us who enjoyed the food, if not the crazy ambiance of an Italian-American family dinner."

  • "my family took my MIL to buca for her birthday. it was a festive evening and the kids ate well. our server was very sweet and was pretty good about keeping us in drinks/bread. we ordered dessert and the servers all sang for my MIL. only downside was they were out of the chocolate lava cake that she had wanted and so we went with the brownie sundae, which was tasty but the brownies were rock hard (may have just been frozen by the ice cream)."

  • "Bucca is running a promotion these days: lasagna 50% off. As expected many people showed up to take advantage of the promotion (only dine-in, no take-out). Five minutes after ordering a large lasagna the waitress came to tell us that the kitchen was running behind (due to high volume) and lasagna will take longer than expected. We ended up getting half after 20 minutes and another half after we asked for the check. If you are going to run a promotion like this one, please make sure your operations can support it."

  • "The food and service were excellent. Only problem we had was a noisy booth next to us. But luckily they left before our appetizer arrived. I heard staff commenting on their noise as they were cleaning the booth up. I miss the good old days when a manager could have approched the booth and asked them to tone it down a bit. But all in all was a great dinner."

  • "Good for groups, but over priced. Server seemed new, got one special request right, while mixing up a few other things. We weren't too worried about it, but he sent manager over anyway to make sure we were satisfied. Unfortunately, on the way out the door we witnessed another server being a little rude to ours due to a "traffic jam". The way the halls/rooms are set up, I'm sure they happen often..."

  • "Timing of 2 small, simple pasta dishes exceeded 45 min coming out of the kitchen. Consistent problem at this location regardless of small table of 2 vs large party of 20. Servers do their best to apologize profusely, but really ruins the overall dining experience. Hadn't been back in quite a whike as a result of former, similar experiences and were really unimpressed with their bland Fetticini Alfredo. Even less impressed that it took them 50 minutes to deliver it to our table."

  • "If you like greasy pizza, faded moldy carpet with a strong odor, and confused waitstaff, this is the place for you! We took one bite of the pizza and promptly put it in a box to give to our teen-age neighbors, who will eat anything."

  • "From a chef's menu to dishes with great sauces, B di B is a great place to go. Kids can even get a big bowl of spaghetti with a big meatball or a large portion of chicken parmesan. A very attentive and friendly staff. It never disappoints."

  • "Combine generous portions with true Italian taste and you'll agree its a place to plan to return to again and again. This chain seems to be consistent in its standards for excellent service atmosphere and truly good tasting food. Menu offers wide variety. Something for everyone pasta meat and fish and some uniquely prepared breads. The Italian sodas are quite good. Did I mention the generous family style portions. Affordable and family oriented I think this place is a gem for travelers and locals alike. They offer coupons online to enhance the experience. I'm not a chain gang diner but this is my exception. Here Pittsburgh and Cleveland. You Betcha Becca is Bravo with our family who takes dining out as a serious choice and a pleasure."

  • "We had a lovely dinner, with exceptional and attentive service. We decided to come for our anniversary and celebrate with our kids. Had the baked penne, apple gorgonzola salad, broccoli, and the Mt Vesuvius chocolate dessert. All was great though I wished the Mt Vesuvius was served hot and with a bit more raspberry for the 'eruption' component!"

  • "We have eaten here several times, but this was the first we ordered pizza. We really enjoyed and found us reminiscing of the type of pizza we remembered and enjoyed when we were in high and college (and that was long time ago)."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Buca never disappoints. Now they have introduced three new dishes for summer. We had the tricolore salad with tomatoes, mozzarella, avocado and basil which had been recommended by the waiter and the always wonderful chicken saltimbocca. I will definitely be going back to try the other new dishes. Although I usually drink the house Chianti, I tried the house Pinot Grigio which was wonderful. I love Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, and the other famous Italian singers from my era so the music there is always a treat."

  • "On occasion the service can be below average (speed of receiving food and food temperature not being hot). Sometimes ingredients are missing from the food item ordered."

  • "First, excellent waiter - kudos! Good lasagna... fun, reasonably priced place to bring kids and grandparents."

  • "Initial problem when they tried to sit a party of 9 at a table set for 8. Rectified that ourselves by sitting down at an adjacent table set for 10. The host stand seemed to manage to adjust. All uphill from there. Great waiter with great service. We always love the food and order way to much. Great fun sharing with family and trying some dishes you wouldn't normally order for a smaller group."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "For a Monday night the service was particularly slow. They weren't that busy, but we had to wait while the baked more bread and it took a long time for our main course to arrive. Our waitress was very good about keeping us apprised of what was going on, but it still took longer than it should have."

  • "My friend had been there before, but I have not. It was a great experience both in the dinner offerings, wine choices, and ambience. I definitely would come back again with friends and family. I would need to return as there was so much to see in the decor and to try more dishes that looked appetizing. I will encourage friends to go. I am glad that my friend suggested this place!"

  • "I love this place! I have been multiple times and have yet to find something that is bad. Menu is huge. Bring lots of friends."

  • "As always, Buco came through again! Delicious Family style Italian with lots of leftovers. Whatever you do, don't get upset about the portions! Listened to one woman complain there was 'Too much food'. That's why you bring this wonderful stuff home!! Stretches what you spend into a second meal! Veal Marsala, Chicken Prosciutto and Cheese Ravioli for the three of us was excellent. And the young trainee serving us that night did a great job! Gotta love this place. Make a reservation!!!!!!"

  • "We went with a group of 6 for Mother's Day dinner. It was nice. Our waitress was very patient and helped with questions and the food was fine. The only issue is that everything (appetizers, bread, salad and entrees) arrived at the same time. Maybe that's because they were so busy."

  • "It was Mothers day so they had a nice crowd. We just had a weird experience this time as opposed to all the other experiences. An old lady opened the emergency door so an alarm sounded for a couple of minutes until the manager came with the key to silence it. Spaghetti and meatballs didnt come with enough sauce so twice I had to ask.for more sauce. Then I realized they charge 7.99 for it. Next time I 'll send the plate back...if ask for more they consider it a side.order "

  • "Our waitress Bridgette was friendly but we had 3 small children and were placed in a room with families with kids, WOW was it noisy, and the food was the worse I had ever had, perhaps because of the volume that was needed to be prepared and served that day, will never again return on a holiday or Mother's Day."

  • "We've been here several times and it's always wonderful. This time, with a guest that has never been here, our server was pleasant but out ceasar salad appetizer came at the same time as our three entree dishes, followed by the wine we ordered before anything else. The food was delicious but with such large portions and family style serving we had no room on the table to put anything and actually felt rushed to try and eat our salad and still have the entree hot. Our server was very apologetic, but it still wasn't that great of an experience. The person we were with told us she wished we would have gone to another restaurant where she could have had a relaxing meal and not felt so cramped. The restaurant wasn't overly busy."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "The restaurant wasn't ready for a crowd. Our appetizers came after dinner. The calamari was way overdone, the mushrooms were practically raw. The pasta wasn't hot. The waitress was nice, but overworked, with no time to be very friendly."

  • "They sit us at the bar, the waiter has too many clients for her, waiting for service and food to arrived was 30' we needed to call every time for a refill."
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "The food was almost cold and the waitress must have thought I had no money as she never came to our table after we received the food. We never had our drinks refilled, NOTHING! Funny thing is I am a model and make plenty of money."

  • "My family and I have been frequent patrons of Buca di Beppo. We were a little nervous about this particular visit, however, because we were taking another family with us who had never dined at the restaurant, and we had talked it up a lot. In other words . . . they had high expectations about the food and atmosphere. Fortunately, the experience lived up to the hype. Every dish we ordered was amazing, and not one person in our large party of 9 had a single complaint. In fact, our waiter was extremely accommodating. We couldn't have chosen a better place to celebrate Easter. As we were leaving, one of the people in our party said, "This was the best Easter ever!" We would highly recommend this restaurant!"
