Diner Reviews
  • "It was a reunion of friends who hadn't connected in a while. Perfectly placed with great service from Kehau...the chef, the mgr and even the photographer were all friendly. It was like we were in our own restaurant...we sang, we laughed, we prayed. We had a wonderful time and we will be back!"

  • "Buca Di Beppo is a chain but somehow manages to keep the flavor of a small restaurant. Walking into the restaurant, the walls are festooned with photos and posters that gives one the feel of being in an Old World Italian restaurant. The kitchen tour en route to being seated is a good idea and it allows one to see the sanitary conditions, how dishes are prepared but most of all, the camradarie between workers in the kitchen. Everyone in the kitchen is having a good time and enjoys their job and working with each other. The menu has more than enough selections to please any palate. The service was excellent with regular checks from our waitress to see anything was needed. Wonderful dining experience!"

  • "The food here is expensive for the quality received, especially if you have 3 or less people in your group. It is better for larger groups, then it is cheaper per person and you can also order more things. There were only 3 of us "girls," who don't eat a lot, so we shared the variety appetizer platter and baked ziti with shrimp. The food was good, but not great. Even with a $10-off coupon, it came out to about $20 per person including tip. The server was very friendly and patient all night. The wait staff greeted us on the way in and out, which adds to the family friendly ambiance. I would return here if I was with a larger group, or for lunch."

  • "busy on a sunday so i guess that caused the service to be a little slow. at least we got a coupon thru the email club. we tried to bring a bigger group so we could take advantage of the family style portions. we even had another customer ask us what we were eating. it was the cheese ravioli but with ROSA sauce substituted for the marinara. AWESOME!"

  • "Very pleased with the online reservation and the follow-up responses and text notification that our table is ready was phenomenal. Friendly atmosphere, great service, and everything we have ordered to eat and drink so far have always been great."

  • "Buca is such a reliable place. The food is always great and consistent. Being able to use discount coupons from the newspaper is a bonus."

  • "They are know for the big portions and oversized meals. I honestly don't eat leftovers and would prefer quality over quantity. The salad and entree came out at the same time. The breaded chicken entrees were all uniform, which leads me to believe they are frozen. Not worth the money."

  • "We have eaten here about 3 times during lunch within the past 3 months. I made reservations online for lunch on 07/05/14 for the Pope room. I was pleasantly surprised that we were able to get this room. All the times that we have eaten here, we have received excellent service. The food is also excellent."

  • "I got the smallest sized glass of bud light (14 oz), no collectors cups or gimmicks like that, and it cost over $5! Of course you don't list prices for drinks on your menu with ridiculous prices like that. The place feels like chucky cheese without the games. The free bread that came out just before the meal was cold and stale. Otherwise, the food was good."

  • "My wife and I have visited Buca di Beppo on a number of occasions and continue to be impressed by how great the food and service are. We wanted to have an early dinner so that we could go watch the fireworks at Ala Moana. All in all, it was a perfect end to a beautiful day in paradise."

  • "This place is absolutely great for large parties. The portions are big family sizes that we ordered way too much food. I'm surprised the waitress didn't comment on how much we ordered so that we could save some $$. So actually this place ended up being very, very expensive for us! Also, we had a booth, so you would think the noise level would be better for us to talk to one another, but the restaurant was so noisy that I couldn't hear anything my friend was saying. I really had to ask them to keep repeating themselves and struggle to understand what they were saying which was a huge pain to do!! But after a couple of big parties left the restaurant, we were able to enjoy ourselves."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The atmosphere alone is enough to keep me entertained. The variety of authentic and diverse Italian dishes assures that you will find something for everyone. I recommend going in a group. Ordering family style is another thing that I feel makes it more authentic. The wine selection is not too bad either:)"

  • "We had a birthday celebration here...everyone enjoyed the food but I thought it was a bit expensive. Bill for six, almost $200 ..."

  • "Our server was great, otherwise food and ambience were just good. But if we didn't get him, I'm not sure we would have enjoyed it as much. Buca is a MUCH better experience when you go with a group, though; not so fun on a date; more platters from which to eat. Although the smaller portions are appreciated."

  • "One member of our party walked with a cane yet they put us in an awkward corner table where 2 of the 4 seats were cramped. And the restaurant wasn't full. And a reservation had been made. Not so nice."

  • "Lucky booked a reservations thru open table. Restaurant was very busy and took us on time very short wait. Service was excellent and food was tasty. The large which indicates good for four did meet our expectations and we had three large eaters in our group."

  • "Our food was very good & certainly plenty of it. We invited a Birthday Girl and her husband to lunch to celebrate. They had never been before.We had been there as recent as last week. We arrived early for reservation & were immediately seated. We were given wine menu, lunch menu and regular menu. All 4 of us ordered from lunch menu, however when bill came we were charged full price menu. I did not complain at that time, because as I said it was our treat and a celebration of birth. I did not want to dampen the atmosphere or the occasion. It was a Saturday, so maybe lunch menu did not apply, but why give us that menu if it was not available?"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I specifically asked for a high chair for my son in the reservation request. He is DISABLED and on oxygen and cannot sit up on his own. We were informed that were ready to be seated was but it was a booth, for a table it was another 30-45 min wait. We had already waited 20 minutes even with a reservation. So, I agreed to the booth b/c it was already late, we had 3 kids under age 6 and everyone was hungry. Obviously, it was not a pleasant dining experience for us b/c we held my son the entire evening. Everyone was uncomfortable. Server was great and food was great. We are frequent diners of BDB and was excited to visit this one in HI but was EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED B/C ACCOMMODATIONS WERE NOT MADE FOR OUR HANDICAP SON!"

  • "Great for big parties. Menu is family style Italian dining. Always great service and the food is good. It seems pricey though if you have a small party of 2-4 people."

  • "Buca di Beppo is a great restaurant and I love to come here when I can put together a big group. The service is great and pretty much every time I've been there, the waiters have been friendly and attentive. The food is always delicious, but make sure to bring several people if you want to try more than one thing. The portion sizes are huge, but the prices are really reasonable. I was able to feed 6 people for a little over $100, and when we left we were stuffed. It gets really crowded and noisy on the weekends, so don't plan for a romantic date or anything. Over all it's just a great restaurant with great service, great food, and great prices. I highly recommend it!"

  • "On Father's Day the jubilant spirit of the restaurant was in full gear. Portions were delicious and plentiful, even the gluten-free dish was large enough to share. I can't say enough about our waitstaff, especially Steve. He even treated our youngest member of our party with respect. Steve was able to balance the fine line of attentive without being overbearing. I recommend the Caprese, Chicken Parmigiana, and Spaghetti with (fist sized) meatballs for all family members. The stuffed shells were FANTASTIC; however, they're pretty spicy and may not be tolerated by picky nine year olds. :)"

  • "Okay...I love going to Buca, but honestly - depending on what room they seat you in - can change the whole experience. It was soooooo loud on Father's day we actually gave up trying to talk to each other and just began using an improvised sign language. Me: DO YOU WANT SUM MORE PASTA!!?? Wife: WHUT?? Me: DO Y-YOOOO (point finger) WHUNT - AGRGHHHH (hold my hand to my mouth in a scooping motion)....Wife: DRINK WATER FROM A STREAM??!!...Me: NO! DO YOU WANT MORE P...you get what I mean. Even the waiter had to kneel down next to me to hear what I was saying. So we ate like starved bedouin raiders in silence....paid for our meal and returned to our camel for the long and arduous trip home. Like I said - Buca is great! Just really noisy."

  • "The servings are "family style" and large. There is a wide selection of pastas, pizzas, & fried breaded items. Most times service has been very good. Sometimes it takes a little while before the waiter or waitress comes around, probably because they are so busy all of the time. It can get noisy and hard to hear each other speak sometimes. The restaurant is large with interesting photos and statues to look at. They will offer you a tour of the kitchen if it is your first time there.I've seen kids having birthday parties there a few times. There is a photographer who goes around and offers to take pictures and then sell them to you after they have been developed. We have taken pictures there 3 times."

  • "Our group from work always has Buca as one of the top 3 choices when we have a reason to get together. The ambience is intimate yet fun, on a Saturday night the place is jammed with people, yet the professional staff keeps the focus on your party in such a way we felt totally pampered with the best quality of service. Several in our group are regulars to Buca and others were newbies, however, there was something enjoyable for everyone, from drinks, to appetizers, the dinner meal and dessert. Fabulous! I score them a "10" of "0 to 10". And, my bosses had a great time!"

  • "Been here twice and will go back again. Food is very tasty and portions are big. Very energetic atmosphere. Servers are friendly and have great attitudes and enjoy their jobs. Ordered the muscles for a starter and had a few that did not open. Mentioned it to the server and they brought out another order! Not that we had room to eat any more, so they boxed it up for us. Recommend this place...but make sure you are hungry!"

  • "Went with relatives who were in town, and it was a fun experience. The food was good for both my son and company and the service was outstanding. We will be sure to keep Buca in mind when we have guest over again. The only thing is the noise level is quite loud that it is hard to speak at a normal level and when you're trying to catch up with family and friends, it does make it a little challenging. But that being said it did create a lively atmosphere. The food was good and they serve a lot which is great cause it does taste good the next day also. Overall, we had a very nice evening!"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "The nice thing about Buca is that they can easily handle groups of 10, 12, 20. It is a fun place and kid friendly. Although the food is pretty decent, the place is noisy and the opposite of what I would think is romantic. The wait staff is young and energetic like the clientele so there are some glitches there but that goes with the territory when it seems to be a training ground for newbies. Would I go again? Definitely! But my expectation would not be extemely high."

We were running a little late (15min), called the restaurant to advise and they were still able to honor our resv; also received a text message asking if I still need the resv. The staff was very helpful and accommodating for our friends and family!"
