Diner Reviews
  • "the food was great, but the waiter was horrible. haven't had that bad of service from a waiter ever. We had to ask the other server twice to track him down just to order another drink. He only came to the table 1 time and that was when the food came out. Hard to come back to a place that has service like that."

  • "A great place for a family outing. As usual, the food was great and the service outstanding. The server did an awesome job of taking great care of us and providing great recommendations for entrees and dessert. Just wish they had a location up north."

  • "I have been to Bucca di Beppo several times. I think it is a wonderful place for a date night or special occasion. I have to say this last time I went wasn't my favorites experience. We were sat in the lower level and it had a strange smell. The food was wonderful as usual and the service was good as well. I will definitely go back again!"

  • "We brought another couple with us who was also celebrating an anniversary. Our waitress forgot our appetizer and then they served it to the table next to ours. Gabe (head chef) came out and explained what had happened after about an hour...but still no appetizer. 1-1/2 hours later still no appetizers he brings us out 2 salads that we didn't really want but by now we where pretty hungry. Then as he is setting the salads down the food shows up...There's no room on the table. 1/2 way through the meal our appetizer finally shows up. That night Buca pretty much managed to screw up what I thought was going to be the high light of our trip to the plaza. Instead it was The melting pot. So disappointed!!"

  • "Nice place in a great area. Had a drink that had something floating in it so I had to send it back. Food was okay at best (but this was my first time eating there), at best the level you would get at Olive Garden. Our server kept forgetting things (straws, to bring our check, and to bring to go boxes multiple times). I believe the issue that we had with the server was due to him being over booked with tables, maybe better scheduling would have helped."

  • "There were 14 of us and we were celebrating 4 children's birthdays! The waitress was wonderful and the staff was very accommodating when our party grew from 12-14! We had very little food leftover to take home...which means it was very good and everyone got their fill! I would suggest they have something for birthday people...even if there is a charge for it...especially for children....but we were told they had nothing. I think that would be a nice addition."

  • "The food is good but over priced. The atmosphere would be the draw of this place but on our trip they sat one party of 20 young girls and another party of 10 girls in the same small room as our party of 5. We could not hear each other even when we yelled. I feel for a 200 dinner tab they should have compensated us or moved us. I am not picky but being shoved into the corner of a 12 x 12 basement with 30 screaming girls? We won't be back."

  • "The staff at Buca di Beppo went out of their way to make my mother-in-law's 85th birthday dinner very special. There were 22 of us, and I warned the manager ahead of time that we have a tendency to be a bit loud. They put us in a very nice area away from the other diners, so we didn't need to be self conscious about our noise level. We were waited on by the nicest waiter and waitress we could have asked for. They were incredibly patient and very attentive without hovering. We couldn't have asked for a nicer evening. The food was good and more than plentiful. We all walked out with enough for lunch the next day. They also have a gluten-free menu which I don't find at very many Italian restaurants."

  • "There is great food everywhere but it isn't complete without a friendly and knowledgeable staff. We were running late for our reservation and the host was understanding in regard to find parking. We were greeted warmly and immediately taken to our table. Our server was fun, energetic, but not to the point of dominating the meal...she was a pleasant contribution to a wonderful evening. The food was served quickly and nicely presented. We never felt rushed and upon paying the check we were thanked by all staff as we were leaving the restaurant."

  • "Buca di Beppo is always our safe place to go on special occasions. Birthdays, anniversaries, and get-together's. Their Spicy Chicken Rigatoni is my all-time favorite and it's pretty much what I order now that I've tried everything on the menu. They have a pretty good wine list and their lemon cake desert is SUPER good, do recommend."

  • "Food was very plentiful, but tasteless. The server was nice and attentive. Everything placed on the table was hot and fresh. Reservations were for 7:30pm I wasn't shown to a table until 8:20pm. Very fine restaurant but food was bland."

  • "We went this last friday, about 6 of us. Our waitress Naomi was awesome. very friendly, knowledgeable and kept up with our often rowdy table. (we were seated in the back by ourselves so we were not disturbing anyone) she understood our jokes and chimed in as well. It was a great experience from an equally great restaurant. Experiances like this keep us coming back (from WAY out of town) to dine here time and time again."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Buca di Beppo is a great place for a group with their family-style dining. My group of 6 had a great time. It was early on a Friday, so the service was a little slow, but our server was just attentive enough that we didn't want for anything. The decor is fun and sassy and irreverent, and the food is delicious. We ordered stuffed shells, prosciutto-stuffed chicken, and chicken manicotti. All of it was cooked splendidly, presented in an attractive way, and of course, delicious to bite into. Thanks, Buca!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Staff was friendly, but service was just fine. Food was really good. We tried everything from appetizers, salad, dinner and desert. Our waiter was over extended, we waited for everything. Had to ask for water to be refilled. I would not go back. Walking to our table was a rat maze, once we were seated we were in a humid/damp room. I was warm and I brought a sweater because I normally need one in restaurants in the summer. We were seated in a room with two large parties that were loud. "Rooms" are large with nothing to break the sound. We seldom go out to eat. I expect more then this when we do. Too bad, the food was really good."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Went to Buca to enjoy some Italian food with a group of friends and was disappointed with where we were sat and with the waiter's attitude. The food, however, was good. I couldn't understand though how a small spaghetti and meatballs had 2 meatballs and yet a large only had 3 at double the price. We were also seated by a group of loud girls and another table of bachelorettes so it was hard to hear the person next to you. The waiter we had, John, also did not fall within good graces when he basically "threw" the butter packets we requested on the table. He did, however, change his attitude when I think he sensed our dissatisfaction with his actions and I asked for his name. I would say that Buca's saving grace was their food."

  • "Our family met the family of our daughter-in-law-to-be to celebrate her birthday. Our waiter was courteous and attentive to the eldest in our party of thirteen people down to our 8-month old grandson. Every food choice from the appetizer to the the dessert was excellent. Because our meal was served family style, it was truly like sitting around the old family dinner table. My favorite---the apple gorgonzola salad and the lasagna--(I didn't want to order a traditional dish, but several in our party requested it. It was amazing.)"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Went in the middle of the day and the server ignored us and we spent over an hour for one small meal. The bread is overpriced and is $15 for a small loaf. The meals are really sized for one person. Not a good atmosphere. Mostly upset about the server taking 20 minutes just to process my credit card.."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The booze was overpriced, the ziti was overcooked and tasted like rubber. The linguine was bland and the spicy hot sausage was not spicy hot. The only thing that was any good was the stuffed chicken. I feel that I did not get a good value for my money. Once the waiter knew we were unhappy tried to avoid our table giving poor service."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The food was amazing! Group of 8 and we had two large prosciutto stuffed chicken and a large stuffed shells. Our waitress was terrible though. Pretty much ignored us the entire time."

  • "I had been at this restaurant once previously and remember the food being much better. The posts didn't have enough sauce and the noodles were overcooked.I didn't tell our server because the flavor of the food was lacking also.very disappointed. For $50 plus dollars we could have had a much better meal at the Olive garden. Will not be back and will not recommend."

  • "We had a party of 12 for my birthday. We were seated in the Pope room. The room was the right size and perfect for a private party. Good food, good friends, good times! Everyone enjoyed their meals and left happy."

  • "The ambiance and food were amazing, however the service was not so good, which was disappointing as we were there to celebrate my daughters 18th birthday. This restaurant has always been our "special occasion" place."

  • "Buca is always a great time. The service is always great in my opinion. It's usually a fairly loud place, so I wouldn't recommend going there if you are looking for a quiet dinner. The food was superb (as it always is). Also as usual lots of leftovers. (They have huge portions for sharing). There was one funny thing that happened though. People are always surprised that you can make reservations to Buca. I personally don't want to wait an hour, so I always make reservations. Perhaps Buca should market this more to their customers. (Or the customers should look harder on the website. Haha.). I'll be back."

  • "We did not receive our salad as an appetizer and asked the waitress to take it off our bill. The manager came by later and offered us another salad to take home "on the house". It was a gerrific gesture and really appreciated."

  • "Dined here for our 16th wedding anniversary, good experience but we were sat at a table that seated 6 and there were only 2 of us. We asked to be seated in a booth and were told we had to sit there because of the waiter(s) were assigned to that area and none were assigned to booths at that time. Besides that, the food was great and so was our waiter, we will return!"

  • "We were a party of four, made a reservation for 2:00pm on a Sunday. Arrived and was greeted by a nice young man at the entrance. We were promptly seated and a very nice waitress came over, explained the food format, since this was our first time here. Took our drink orders and brought us bread. Our food came quickly and was at the right temperatures and great flavors. Had some Sangria and Teramisu for desert."

  • "We had made a reservation ahead of time. Unfortunately their air conditioner was broken making it a miserable experience. I ordered veal. It was dry and unflavorful. It's not the restaurant's fault but a very loud patron told story after boring story. So annoying."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I made reservations online and in the request section I specifically asked for 2 celebration cakes as we would be celebrating 50th and 86th birthdays. Our waiter had no idea of the cakes and said that they should have been ordered prior to our coming...so no cakes for us. The air conditioning was broke so the place was extremely uncomfortable and hot. The waiter said, "yes it's very hot I put a fan in our prep area"...what about putting a fan in the dining area for the customers? Our reservation was at 4:30 and there was only one other table in our section, but we felt very rushed to get out...even had the manager come over and asked while we were still there did we need anything."
