Buca di Beppo - Honolulu
excellent from start to finishLoved everything about this place. Employees are friendly from the get go. The food and service was excellent-o. We all enjoyed our experience there and for sure will return. Family style eats really means "family" style. We had leftovers for dinner which means I didn't have to cook :) and my hubby had some to take for lunch the next day.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAWESOME!We celebrated a birthday, and I must say, they do a great job!
The service was great, food awesome, and we really had a great time.
I really like the little tour thru the kitchen they give when you have a b-day gal...

After going to buffets for years, we decided to do something different and having lunch at Buca di Beppo was wonderful. The food is so good.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI bucalicious you with pasta love!My waiter Jerry is like the giant meat ball. He tops it of with kindness, spunktuality and class! He is very respectful and pleasant. He knows how to treat his visitors. Thank you Jerry! We all enjoyed your service and your Aloha!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMUltimate Hawaiian ItalianBuca di Beppo was found when we were going to the movies. We could smell the magnificent aroma of the marinara and other wonderful dishes coming outside of the restaurant. We have yet to find a dish we didn't like. The service is fabulous and the atmosphere is like being back in Italy. When we are in Honolulu traveling from the Big Island this is a must do restaurant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Food!If you love Italian food then you will love Buca di Beppo! All family style dishes which means. Order a couple of things and the family is set on food. The hardest part is going be deciding what you want to eat because it's all so good! We always find ourselves getting the Eggplant Parm. We tried the sausage and peppers for a side dish this last time and it was wonderful! All I have to say is give it a try and you will be hooked!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, but too noisyThis was my first visit to Buca di Beppo in Kaka'ako. I took a close friend there for a Mother's Day lunch. Service and food were excellent - we ordered eggplant parmigiana, pasta, apple salad and cannoli. I can also recommend the cream soda! The decor and ambiance are generally very good but the noise level was much too high. It was hard to carry on a conversation. This might be a good place for a large group or a party, but not if you're hoping to catch up on news with your friends. However, the food was excellent! The eggplant and the salad were especially delicious. Portions are huge so we had plenty of leftovers. I will definitely go to this restaurant again and hope it will be quieter next time.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI booked a table for 5 guestsI booked a table for 5 guests to celebrate my teacher's birthday. She was visiting from Osaka, Japan. The staff made her feel very special. We all left the table full and happy. :-)5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was awesome...SheOur server was awesome...She was personable, helpful and jovial. It was our anniversary, so she took extra care to make us feel "honored", and was very informative of the menu. I wanted something a little different from the menu, and she eagerly accomodated my request. She was helpful to my husband in making his local beer choice. The one thing I was not too fond of was the roving photographer. Not the idea of the photography, but this one in particular seemed to have difficulty understanding English and you had to repeat every question you asked her, and she was devoid of personality. All in all, this was a great experience with great food and dynamic service.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food; noisy.It's a good restaurant. I've been to their restaurant in Summerlin, NV. They are the same: large portions, interesting decor, vibrant atmosphere. One annoying factor: they chant some sort of verse for birthdays. It's loud, makes no sense, and, after hearing it several times around you during the meal, becomes annoying.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBuca di Peppo recommended!This was my 2nd time to Buca di Peppo. We went for Easter Sunday brunch. We had a booth reserved for 10 people, thankfully 3 people did not show up as we would have not been comfortable with 5 people on each side! The waiter was great, professional, friendly and running around for all his tables. The food was good, just like the first time I had eaten there. One uncle said it's his favorite place to eat out, and he doesn't really like to eat out, so that's saying a lot. The portions are huge, of course. Everything we ordered was really tasty except the lasagna, but I have not had an impressive lasagna in any Italian restaurant on Oahu.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother rewarding experienceGreat place to eat, excellent value, tons of food. Nicole our server was exceptional, friendly, efficient, and totally professional. We have been there before and took another couple with us that has never been. They were so impressed they told us this will now become their favorite regular restaurant and they can't wait to come back. Kudos all around.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMJust a reminder that all groupsJust a reminder that all groups are not celebrating a fun occasion - we were there re a death of a friend.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat serverAlways request a table in Miles section thru opentable, unfortunately our hostess did not seat us at the requested booth and had to wait to get to our usual corner booth.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time at Buca.We had a great time at Buca. My friends didn't like that the Chicken Marsala was sweet instead of savory. At least the chicken was cooked properly & was not dried out. My favorite was the Quatro formaggio. All four dishes were great! I would order that again for sure! The Shrimp Florentine was ok also. Too bad we didn't have room for dessert!
I'm planning a birthday party at Buca next month, I hope I will be able to book a large party thru Open Table!!!2/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMolto Bene!Great place to meet up with friends for dinner, which is what we did on 2/14. I and some of my single friends decided to have dinner together vs. dining alone. We have now decided to make it an annual event, and it's all due to the service and wonderful food we had at Buca... Grazie mille2/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
