Buca di Beppo - Kansas City
Birthday dinnerWe reserved a table for 6 for a special birthday dinner experience for a Hong Kong native who loves Italian food. We were not disappointed with our choice (first time visitors). The staff was extremely accomodating, attentive, and personable. The manager stopped by the table and introduced himself, (did he know this was an Open Table reservation? Maybe, but it was a nice touch anyway.) The food was on the whole deliciously prepared and presented. The one thing my 15 year old son noticed was the chicken in the Pasta San Remo did not seem of the highest quality; it may have been a pressed product? The sauce was delicious so it didn't matter. HUGE portions, so order accordingly. We still have leftovers in the fridge two nights later. Thanks6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian Franchise beats Hometown!We tragically had dinner at an old time Italian Restaurant here in Kansas City about a month ago and were sorely disappointed.
Ironically one of my credit cards had a gift card for Buca de Bepo!
We went Friday night, with reservations, were seated and greeted with enthusiasm and fun.
Our waiter Scott was friendly and helpful and we ordered several items that were to "die for"!
My wife is New York Long Island Italian and she was singing praises and enjoying every savory biteful!
The portions were large and we enjoyed them again for dinner last night and lunch today.
DEElicious and bountiful - Oh and the wine Caraffe was superb as well.
WE WILL BE BACK AND SOON!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentA great overall experience! Can't wait to come back with friends. Our waitress failed to bring us bread, but service was decent other than that.

We parked in the parking garage and had to walk through the kitchen area to get to the hostess stand (weird, but the kitchen was clean). We were seated in a corner underneath a VERY loud heating/cooling vent. Each time the thing kicked on it made us jump. It was VERY loud and made it hard for us to hear each other. The food was good and the portions were ample.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the only time thatThis is the only time that service has been an issue. Our server went missing for some time and we had to flag down another server to help us. We had kids with us and they became very restless.
Great food and great atmosphere as always.

Prom goers were respectful of other diners and they added to a great night of people-watching. We told waitress we were there for a birthday but she didn't provide the candelabra or the music which we wanted.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to Buca a fewWe have been to Buca a few times. Very enjoyable. Our server, Kelly. Very knowledgable and efficient. We like it when a waitress or waiter makes us feel important. I don't know how much you pay this one but you should pay her more. In my book, the waitress makes or breaks a dining experience.
We'll be back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBuca has become a family favoriteBuca has become a family favorite for not too high profile celebrations (grandpa's birthday this time). Everybody gets plenty of good comfort food in a somewhat festive environment. They seem to be chronically understaffed, but somehow pull it off without too much stress showing. We always enjoy it!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBuca is a very exquisite restaurantBuca is a very exquisite restaurant and perfect for any sort of special get-together.
