    Our waiter Brandon, a Hilo native, recognized our family and was welcoming and friendly in that way that only Hawai'i natives can be. He had other tables, but it never felt like he was in a hurry or stressed. Our food was just as we expected--delicious and filling, with ample portions! The lady photographer was engaging and fun. The photos were beautiful and we ended up buying them all! We have been to Buca for Thanksgiving and we LOVE it! We will be back often to enjoy this great restaurant!!!

    My girlfriend and I are students at HPU. Every so often we splurge on a good date night. The other night we saw a movie in the ward center and fested in Boca shortly after. We were seated two minutes before our reservation and as quickly as our order was taken, the food came out. Great date night place! You'll see us again. Send a coupon!

    Thank you for the Good Service! The spirit of the event along with the fitting ambiance made it a delightful and memorable evening. Our guest was totally surprised with the waiter's "Happy Birthday" sing-song and of the other patron's join-in of well wishes. We absolutely enjoyed the happy occasion and appreciate the restaurant's supportive participation! Thanks again!

    Usually we really enjoy Buca di Beppo. We made a reservation through Open Table to have an early dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. The hostess cheerfully told us that we would be seated in the bar. She led us to a table that was wet from the AC dripping on it. Only after my son made a fuss about the seats being wet, did she offer to move us to the next table. After waiting about 10 minutes, the bartender finally came over to take our order. We could overhear the staff arguing with each other about who was supposed to wait on our table. Quite unpleasant and awkward because we felt unwanted and uncomfortable in the bar to begin with. Our food was not good at all but the server didn't check on us until he brought the check.

    Buca di Beppo is the best for large family and work meals! Made the mistake ONCE of eating here with just a party of 3, and it was NOT enjoyable. Noise level is high and portions are ginormous, making this perfect for big groups! The servers are also very well versed in the menu and portion choices. Just make sure everyone at table is willing to share...mangia!

    From the time we arrived we were very pleased with the service. Since we where there to celebrate a birthday the fool and service was great. Our waitress greeted with a friendly smile and welcome. Since we had been there before it was easy to order our food but the waitress also helped with the ordering. We really enjoyed the service and food. Thank you to all the staff for helping us celebrate a birthday.

  • Buca di Beppo always satisfies
    WellnessInSightVIP
    Dined on 9/28/2014
    Eating at Buca di Beppo, I expect to be satisfied and happy. I usually change the pasta, and ask that it be brought out piping hot, with extra sauce. Without exception, they are always accommodating. I was not satisfied with one of our entrees, so they asked Brian, the manager that day, and he suggested that we change it. Later, he made sure that everything was satisfactory. The associates are always checking on us to make sure that we were taken care of- whatever the situation. Brian and Diana, the other manager, always go the extra mile to make my dining experience , most enjoyable. That is why, I usually suggest Buca di Beppo, whenever anyone says "Italian". I would comment further, alas, exceeding limit.

    The food is good, but the noise level can be very distracting and somewhat irritating. This restaurant attracts large parties, usually celebrating special occasions, which is great. What is not so great is when these larger groups tend to be boisterous. It was unfortunate that were seated in the middle of these types of celebrations.

    Me and my friends went to Buca di Beppo to celebrate my birthday with dinner. The service was outstanding and the food, served family style, was not only delicious but also was enough for all of us to take some home. Our server (Frank) was very attentive and could give us good recommendations on the menu, very friendly and funny as well. Since it was my birthday he also came with a lit chandelier along with the dessert and sang me happy birthday. That was awesome! Overall the dining experience was extraordinary and I can definitely recommend anyone to go here!

    Went to Bucca to celebrate my son's 20th Birthday. Food was EXCELLENT and Michael our server was FANTASTIC. I used the "Feed 4 for $40" promotion 4x plus purchased (1) large serving each of the Chicken Marsala & Lasagna. I also ordered (2) servings of Meatballs, but the meatballs never came to the table. No prob, since there was a lot of food any way. Maybe next time we'll order it. Definitely going back.. Only (2) areas of improvement: 1. the atmosphere is a little gawdy and (2) Restrooms need to be refreshed

    Sat in the bar for lower noise level so we could talk - which we did for hours. Delighted to find out there was a happy hour menu. Ordered caprese (only 2 slices per order so ordered 2 more plates), mini meatballs and pizza (larger than described - so we orders 3 which was too much) than a salad and desert from the regular menu. Everything was delicious.

    One thing you must know when you come to Buca di Beppo is that it's family style. Even the small serving can feed at least 2 people. So order in moderation or you're gonna need a wheelchair to push you out of that place. But all and all the food is simple but delicious and the service is great! Must try!

    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!!!!

    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.
