Diner Reviews
  • "We had a group of eight for a great late afternoon dinner at Buca. The food was good, the service was fine and the overall experience was perfect for the occasion. We had to wait a few minutes for our table even though we has reservations. It really wasn't a problem because our group enjoyed the time laughing about the pictures in the lobby. We'll be back!"

  • "Another wonderful family gathering at Buca di Beppo celebrating my grandson's 17th birthday. Celebrating at Buca di Beppo was requested by my family visiting from out of town. We had good service and lots of great food in a relaxed family-friendly environment. Salads were fresh and very appetizing. Pasta Dishes were excellent. Chicken Parmesan was absolutely wonderful. Thanks for making this another memorable occasion."

  • "My friends and I went to Italy together in 2000. We get together at least once per year to celebrate birthdays etc. One of my girlfriends had never been to Buca di Beppo, so I suggested it. And it's only a mile from my house!!! We really enjoyed it, and had privacy in our booth for sharing stories!"

  • "The service was very slow. When the waiter finally brought the salad it was not the one we ordered. He said he accidentally picked up the wrong one so he took it back and we had to wait another long time to get the correct one. Our party consisted of 5 adults. We asked for a table away from kids so we could carry on a conversation. About 10 min. after we sat down they seated a family right next to us with a kid that was screaming when they got there and still screaming 2 hours later when we were finally able to finish our meal and get out of there. There was another room right next to us that was completely empty. They should have an area for people with screaming kids and another one for adults."

  • "I made my reservation for 10, when we got to our table it was set for 8. Instead of adding another table or finding us somewhere else to sit, they had us squeeze into this table setting. I was literally sitting on a corner of the table. The pasta was dry, had to ask for extra sauce. We had two people in our party with a birthday and I guess the table next to us also had a birthday. Instead of singing to the tables one at a time, we got one waiter facing us and the backs of the rest. Only one candelabra for 2 people that were sitting at either end of the table. Just saying. Not really a way to make someone feel special. Will we go there again? Probably not."

  • "We went for my daughter's 13th birthday. We had 25 people. Our 2 waiters were the best I've ever had in a restaurant. Extremely attentive and efficient. I was totally impressed."

  • "From the start it was not going well and proceeded to a less than good dining experience Waiter was programmed towards up selling not attentive and not focused on our party and our needs. He had to be reminded TWICE about the cake we brought for our friends birthday AFTER he gave his pitch for dessert It was amazing how disconnected he was, sub par food but a lot if it and lack nod attention to detail is an understatement !"

  • "Don't get me wrong - everything was okay, but just okay. There are many other wonderful Italian choices to make locally in my opinion. Our waiter was really friendly and helpful, though, he was great!"

  • "sadly limited service with a waiter who simply seemed like he was just trying to milk us for more charges. We got drinks in the bar while waiting and so when we did not oder more he just seemed ticked at us. We were celebrating 3 birthdays as we are are born on the same week and again he seemed mad at us. We got tons on food and appetizers but the waiter just disappeared. We could not get water, napkins or service from him at all. We were a party of 7."
    Dined on 8/14/2013
  • "From the time we finished our appetizers, it was over 35 minutes until our food was brought to our table...good food but very boring was brought; to have children in your party and sit waiting that long."

  • "table cramped for four people. waiter was a nice guy but service was slow. food was good but i thought a basket of bread was complimentary. waiter implied that we needed to order cheese bread if we wanted bread, so we ordered it. staff was very friendly."

  • "Had an enjoyable experience for Christmas dinner. Baked rigatoni & chopped antipasto was nice. House red wine was flavorful, without being too dry. We'll be back!"
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "The spaghetti with marinara sauce was bland and not hot enough. The Chicken Marsala was very sweet and again not hot enough. The cost of dinner was too expensive for what was served. No bread was served with the meal. Overall, a very disappointing meal."

  • "Very friendly & helpful staff.. Tour of the restaurant including kitchen. Fun photos all over upstairs and down. Take the time to take the tour. Food was good and plentyful. We took food home. My chicken was a little overcooked but our group had a lot of fun and will return."

  • "This was our 7th visits to this restaurant. 2 were to-go. Others were dine-in. The first 2 were good. We sat upstairs and everything seems good. The next 2 were in the booths area downstairs. The service was obviously slow, less professional and somewhat careless. One of those 2 visits, our male waiter even made a rude comment that I think I would never want him to serve us again. The last visit was the reservation, we came there 8 mins before our time and let the front booth know we arrived, so they told us to wait. I don't know what happened but I obviously saw ppl who had reservation at later time than us came in and got served right away. So we had to ask again and this time the girl let us in. Total wait time was 25 mins."

  • "What a great experience! This was my first time at this restaurant. I had heard from friends about how great it was, but I always like to see for myself. I decided to try the Thanksgiving Day meal. My daughter and son-in-law joined my husbandand me. The decor was different than I had expected~much warmer than I had imagined. Upon learning it was my first time at the restaurant, the maitre'd took us for a tour through the kitchen! Wow, what a treat!!! Our seating was perfect for us, the server was absolutely wonderful, and the food~outstanding! Great price, too! We definitely will go back and have some friends in mind who have not eaten at Buca that we know would love it, and we would love sharing the experience with them! Thank you!"

  • "I have eaten at this Bucca di Beppo before and enjoyed their typical Italian cuisine. Thursday night I was part of a party of 5 who purposely went for the Thanksgiving fare. None of us were disappointed. Our server, Misty, took very good care of us. Her assistant, or bus boy, Eddie, also did an excellent job of making sure we did not lack anything. The turkey dinner was delicious. We all particularly liked the sausage dressing. I thought I would miss a slice of pumpkin pie, but the cannolis were delicious and topped off the satisfying dinner."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "Our experience should be taken with a grain of salt. It was Thanksgiving after all but the restaurant was very loud and our waitress kept forgetting things the entire meal. She was very sweet and we liked her but she also seemed completely overwhelmed. Our food was good and there was plenty of leftovers. I think this is a wonderful place during the week when it's a slower pace but not someplace for a holiday or weekend night."

The wait was 1hr and 30 min but because I had reservations Boom!! pretty much right in waited 10 min but I was 20 min early for my reservation. Large portions here so you are sharing a plate as much as you think you might be able to eat an entree on your own. Good food large portions good service."

  • "Food was marginal and we were stuck upstairs in a room full of screaming children. You could not talk to anyone because it was so noisy and loud. Will not go there again. We went early thinking we would beat the crowd but I guess it did not matter. Food was expensive for what you got and did not taste like authentic italian food, just a mass produced product. The constant running of servers around you make for a very un-relaxing evening. Will not be back. I would advise people of the noise level before they make a reservation there."

  • "This was my first visit ever.. To this restaurant.. And I will tell you.. I will never have pizza anywhere else.. Ever again! We ordered the spicy arrabiata.. Not sure on the spelling.. But it was AMAZING! Our server said it was just put back on the menu after being gone for a while.. I hope it stays forever.. Its the best pizza I have tasted in Years!! The ceasar dressing is perfect... The ambiance is fun and energetic.. And I cant wait to go back!"

I was also surprised that they refilled the Italian sodas. There is a fun ambiance to this restaurant that is perfect for a celebration."
