Diner Reviews
  • "A special treat to be hosted IN THE KITCHEN and watch how a real kitchen works. The service was outstanding , the server was friendly and helpful and contributed to the fun of the evening. The food was excellent, and on the advice of our server, we managed not to over order, so unlike most we finished all our food. The chef went out of his way to spend time chatting to us all through the evening even though he was really busy. The bill was very reasonable, which is an added bonus. Really worth a visit, and if you manage to get the only table in the kitchen, go for it!!!!"

  • "My family and I have been to Buca multiple times and they never disappoint. The food is excellent and the portions are so large that we have never left without at least 3 to go boxes. I would recommend all Italian food lovers to visit this place, whether you are local or just visiting the island. You can even reserve a table right in the kitchen."

  • "We made our reservations online and took our grandchildren to a very delicious dinner. The service was outstanding. The restaurant was very noisy but we expected that. We had a excellent dining experience. We will certainly go back and also recommend Buca di Beppu to our friends and family."

  • "Buca is a fun, energetic place to eat if you don't mind the close quarters and noise. The food is OK; however, a bit pricey for what you get. But what the heck, we had a nice time!"
    Dined on 8/29/2014
  • "When a large group of us decided to get together at the last minute, Bucca easily accommodated us on a very nice table in a corner so we could all hear one another. The food came out quickly and portions were very generous. I remember a few years ago the food was so-so, and we stopped going. It has really improved! Everything was delicious!"

  • "Buca is a place I really enjoyed going to with friends and family. It is great priced for the amount of food you get. The only drawback for me is that I don't eat large portions, I wouldn't even be able to finish the kids meal. The large portions are nice if you share with a couple people you are dining with, but the chances of you wanting the same as somebody isn't very high since the menu has so many delicious options. The only negative for me is the large portions."

  • "Our family had dinner at Buca di Beppo in Honolulu last week. We were 4 adults and 2 teenagers. Two of the adults and both teenagers are vegetarians which can sometimes be a challenge. We ordered cheese ravioli with tomato sauce and eggplant parm for dinner. We also had bruschetta and tomato/mozzarella. Everything was delicious! We didn't expect anything great because sometimes with such large chain restaurants the food can be just fair. We were all very pleasantly surprised at how good everything was. I would definitely recommend this restaurant."

  • "Buca has reliable food - gotta have the green beans! You know that you are going to have plenty and it will be good. Service was great."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "The best part about Buca is it family feel and consistent taste nationwide. The amount of food for the price is right on. The pasta dishes, softball sized meatballs, vwael, and chicken rock. The calimari and caperesse salad are a must for a starter. The spicy rigatoni with shrimp is a hit."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "Bucca can be easily expensive if you come with small numbers, but is good for groups of 4 or more. The food was good and service was attentive. Noise level was annoying at times. Showed up 10 min prior to reservation and checked in. Told would be seated shortly. Ten minutes after my reservation I was still waiting, so I inquired and I had been marked as seated. The error was corrected quickly, but that's not a good way to handle reservations if you seat walkups ahead of them. Makes me wonder how long I would have waited if I didn't press the issue."

  • "Good for group gatherings. Food was ok, maybe not the best but tasty. Croutons are not tasty. My visit they forgot our garlic bread and had to ask where it was. They did compensate me for the error with a free dessert so that was very nice of them. I would patronize them again because the food for the most part, is tasty enough for me to re-visit"

  • "It was great to have a personal touch to the dinner, we postponed an evening dinner for my daughter's birthday due to inclement weather (Hurricane Isselle). We had previously requested that the Tiramisu come out as desert/birtheay cake for my daughter. Even though it was a week later, we were still in the festive mode and having the Tiramisu as the birthday cake was by far the best."

  • "Large portions, decent but not great foood, very noisy. If you don't mind the noise, the food is exactly what you expect good, but not great. Service can be mediocore as the place gets very busy at peek times. Servings are large, kids menu is blah."

  • "The food was delicious and was more than enough for the 8 of us. Carbonara was our favorite of the night. Great ambiance! love the different portraits on the wall and in the restroom.. The host walked us through the kitchen where they prepared all the dishes. Great family fun environment, very energetic and can get loud.. we went on a weeknight and it wasn't too crowded and tight which i liked... on weekends it gets pretty crowded AND busy. Our server was very awesome, she didn't forget anything, kept our drinks coming.. they even took memorabilia pictures which they printed out and gave us a picture postcard of us and option to buy 5x7??"

  • "Basic Italian food. Promptly brought in at reserved time. Host only gave us dinner menus even though we were there at 12:15. Felt like we were seated in a minority section, plenty of people of "color" next to us (no Caucasians). Bread plates at table were still dirty (dried food stuck on), host had to swap them out. Bread was cold and moist, kinda like they just defrosted it. Food okay, nothing special."

  • "We made a reservation online and receive an email telling us to show up 15 minutes early. We were en route for our original reservation and could not make it through the Waikiki traffic without our Batcopter. After arriving to the restaurant 2 minutes after our original time, we waited for a while and were the only family to be made to sit outside. The restaurant was beautiful inside. Full of old world charm and ambiance. The tables outside had rowdy movie goers and smokers sitting feet away from our table. The worst part were the birds. In Hawaii birds rule the outdoor eating establishments. The ones outside this restaurant were true dive bombers. Even after asking if we could be seated inside due to the compounding chaos, 1 hour more!!!"

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Buca! Beginning with the ease of making a reservation and having it honored (on time too!!) to the great service we received from Frank, our server---and of course, the delicious food --- it was a great evening! Also loved being escorted through the kitchen on our way to our table! Chicken parmigiana and meatballs were both perfection!"

  • "We went here for our small wedding reception. We were very pleased with the exceptional service from our waiter, and the food was delicious. The atmosphere was perfect, and the ambiance would have been quiet except for the fact that our group was a little loud, so that was our fault. Overall excellent dining experience and would go back for another special occasion."

  • "Selena and Kalei were very personable and responded quickly with great suggestions. The on-the-day of event staff did not seem as in tune with our event’s needs. They were friendly but service was slow and did not respond to requests - had to keep asking. This is my 2nd event with about 20 pax, I don’t think I would recommend again for that size group unless very casual gathering that does not require much organization."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."
