  • "When my parents come to visit, we always try to make a trip to Buca. The friendly wait staff and great food combine with the eccentric atmosphere to have a fun meal. The ample wine list doesn't hurt either!"

  • "Our dinner was "good"... but despite the plates being too warm to handle (per the server).. the pasta was not very warm at all. That would be our only complaint... food temperature. Price was reasonable."

  • "This is the second year in a row that I've traveled to KC with my family for the Rock the Parkway 1/2 marathon run and we have dinned on pasta the night before at your great establishment. We live in Bentonville, AR and do not have a Buca di Beppo near us, so it's a real treat to visit you while we are in town! Our server Patrick did a GREAT job with us & made the experience even better! Thanks, Mark"

  • "Celebrated my 60th birthday.. Had a 5:30 reservation and were seated fairly quickly. Host leading us to our table relayed some very interesting facts about the restaurant... Food was good and plentiful.. Area was a little bit noisy.. Server was attentive without being a pest... Overall a very nice dinner.... Chuck Gregory"

  • "I took my date to buca di beppo and we both had a great time. the place was fun and huge a wonderful place to go and have a good time and really good for groups. it didn't really feel like a restaurant it felt more of like being at home I loved it. I will never forget that prom."

  • "Although you need a reservation to get in the food was outstanding and worth the wait. I recommend this for date night or family night the portions are perfect!"

  • "Group of runner friends in KC as we ran the Brew 2 Brew 44 mile relay race. Chose Bucca because we were staying on the Plaza, they took a reservation for our group of 8, and fantastic pasta/carbo options. Food, as always solid, service was a top-notch, and the overall experience was excellent. Great for large groups!"

  • "Celebrated my daughters 18th birthday at Buca di Beppo. Had an enjoyable evening. Food was average. Service was good. Somewhat expensive for pasta and chicken. Probably would not go again as a family. Would book the restaurant for a group of 20 or more."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "This was my first dining experience at Buca; it won't be my last. The food was quite good and the portions are meant to share (which they tell you). The calamari appetizer was among the best I've had, especially in the Midwest. We tried the Quattro al Forno and each of the four Pastas was delicious. We'll be back!"

  • "Another fabulous trip to Buca Di Beppo. You will always have left overs even when you order the smalls... For me they can last around 3 days and thats after the main meal.. LOL.. The service was great the atmosphere was awesome and food was yummy.. Great place to spend my birthday!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "For a family of 5, we got 3 small plates plus appetizer and dessert to share! This was more than enough!! We will be enjoying the leftovers this week!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "My wife and I have been to Buca several times since we discovered it 5 years ago. It's our favorite place to eat in KC. We go there for her birthday or our anniversary every year and would go more often if we didn't live over an hour away. We love the fun, 1940's Italian kitchen atmosphere and the food is always excellent."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We booked this reservation for my daughter and 7 of her friends. This was her birthday outing, and we were a little worried about unleashing eight 17 year-olds on the staff. My daughter said the dinner was great and the staff was very nice. I was so glad to hear that."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We love this place and eat here a few times a year. Parking can be tricky on the Plaza if your not familiar with the area. The garage around the corner has steps that lead right down to the eatery. We would highly recommend reservations as they can get quite busy. Food is served family style so even the small really feeds 3. Food is high quality and more traditional flavors compared to most Italian places. Servicer was attentive."

  • "Went here with our family to celebrate numerous events all in one day. There weren't many other customers there at the time, so we didn't think it would take long. Unfortunately, we were mistaken. Our waitress was pleasant, but it seemed to take an awfully long time for everything to arrive.... from our drinks upon arriving, all the way to the receiving of our check. The food was good, but because of the length of time it took to get everything, I'd have given it a higher rating."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "It was a Sunday at 5pm there was a lot of open tables the restaurant was not full at all so why didn't they give us more room I just hate it when I can't enjoy my food because I can't move my arms. I would understand if it was very busy and the restaurant was full but this was not."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Great food and glad we picked this restaurant. Was not happy that we had an 8:30p reservation and arrived at 7:20p HOPING we could get a table sooner than 8:30p AND not getting seated until 8:45p! :(. Main dinner came out BEFORE bread and salad... :/. Lasagna was cold. Server extremely apologetic about time, dinner coming out before salad/bread, and re-warmed our lasagna."

  • "great food, great portions, great place. Because it's underground there isn't much cell phone service. Families can spend time together away from cell phone service. They need to advertise the parking garage behind the store so they don't walk for blocks looking for a place to park. Waitress and hostess explained the Buca process of everything served a la carte. They were not that customer friendly in Seattle."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "The food was fine, but the service, including the initial welcome from the host was not particularly impressive. The lady that walked in before us had to ask the host if he would remember that she was there (to be seated) as the host was visiting with other staff."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The service was terrific, and the food was great. But, we were seated in a room to two large groups, whose members insisted in yelling at each other throughout our meal. I guess that's got to be expected, but next time I'll ask for a table in a room with no groups of more than six. It just get's too noisy."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We have eaten here several times before and always had good experiences. Today was not good. It started with being sat at a very dirty table and having to track someone down to please wipe it off. We were a party of 2 they crammed in a room with 4 other tables, all with parties of 10 or more. It was so loud, and our waiter was obviously busy tending to the large parties we felt bad asking for anything. Our food came out lacking as much flavor as previous times (hardly any cheese on the garlic cheese bread, pizza burnt around the edges), and the plates had old food stuck to them. We couldn't wait to finish and leave. We wanted dessert but chose to have it elsewhere. Hopefully next time it's back to the Bucca we know."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I had an reservation for 7:15, I was not seated until 8:05... After complaining 5 times. Our server Kitti was amazing though! She was extremely fast and had great service!!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The food was very good and the family style servings were large. We all had more than enough to eat and took leftovers home. It was a great time and a very interesting restaurant, everyone enjoyed all the pictures and photos that cover the walls."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "This restaurant is great for a family (or friend) get together. It's family style dining and a fun atmosphere. Make sure to make a reservation, especially on weekends, as they are usually so full that they can't accept walk-ins."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We had the pasta alla vodka, which was excellent, btw. But the quirky layout and design were fun as well. (Pope table, anyone?) the servers were personable and energetic, and they were attentive to our needs. Great food, plenty of it, and a fun evening all around. We will be going back!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "It was my and my girlfriend's first time dining at Buca, and we both though it was amazing! We loved the atmosphere of the place as well as the physical location. Food was delicilious, abundant, and at a reasonable price. We asked our waitress for personal recommendations and she very openly mentioned her personal favorites thereby helping us decide what to order. Service was amazing! We never were missing bread or water at any time! Overall, we both just loved it and definitely want to go back some time!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Great Italian food. I've always gotten great service out of this place. Always pack so always make a reservation. Plenty of food too feed two or more. One of my favorites is the cream sodas. Meatball are delicious."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Bucca never disappoints. We were seated right away because of our open table reservation. The food was excellent. Our group of six ordered three large plates to share along with a large salad and it was too much food. Next time we will order the salad & two large. The place is great with old photos all over the walls, it's fun to look at them. Service was a bit slow, but that has not happened to us before here, so it must have been an off night."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We had a 5:30 reservation. HINT: If you go on a weekend, they don't take walk-ins, just reservations. They sat us back by the bar with other groups of 5+, which was fine. Only one of our table of 7 had been there before, but the server didn't care. She rambled off some stuff, no suggestions and we hardly saw her. Would have been nice to know there was a 4 for $40 deal, and a kid's menu for our two little ones! Overall the food was great and we didn't let her attitude affect our dining. If I can suggest you walk through the restaurant - it's amazing. There are so many tunnels and little rooms, I had no idea. There is a table available for reservation in the kitchen! It looked so cool! I highly suggest this dining experience."

  • "Once again, Buca di Beppo delivers on the quality of the food, the quantity of the food, and the great service. The waitress was extremely knowledgeable about the food and drinks. No unnecessary interuptions. Always a good time when I dine here. Keep it up!"

  • "It was a great and wonderful first experience eating here. We had a group of 4 that we had made reservations earlier in the week, so there was no wait. Had a mini tour of the restaurant, loved the atmosphere and energy. Service was awesome, the waitress did a phenomenal job keeping our drinks and bread filled. The food was amazing, definitely worth coming back. Overall, we were a very satisfied group! And very full!"

  • "I planned a surprise b'day party for my husband and had to change the time to an early slot on the same day b/c of impending bad weather. Everyone was so accommodating in every respect. The servers were fast, friendly and expeditious. Everyone at Buca contributed to the success of the dinner and surprise and for that I am very grateful."

  • "This was our first time to Buca on the Plaza, we used to eat at the one in Overland Park before they closed. Overall the restaurant was good, but they lack a proper waiting room. The restaurant was PACKED and everyone stood shoulder to shoulder in the lobby with barely room to breath. We had a reservation for 8:00 so I would assume they would have our table ready, we arrived 15 minutes early and checked in. We were told our table would be ready in a couple of minutes. It wasn't until I walked back up to the counter 20 min after our reservation that they seated us. The food was good and the service was fast, everything came out quickly and plentiful. The restaurant was so loud you could barely hear the person next to you, hence the 2."

  • "I have only been to Buca once before, and I absolutely loved the experience and the food at the time. I was excited to come back a second time and it was even better than I remembered! The ambience was so unique and interesting and of course the food was absolutely amazing! It was also my birthday so it was fun to have the staff sing and blow out a candle. The only negative aspect about the evening was our waitress did not come around very often. There was a large party in the same room that she was helping with, but there were times that our drink levels were low or empty and she was not available to refill them. But she was very friendly and helpful when we saw her. Other than that minor inconvenience the night was perfect!"

  • "Either I have not ate at enough restaurant's or this by far is truly my favorite! My first time here was two years ago Valentine's, it really set the par. Returned this Valentine of 2014 and it was like the very first time. Beautiful, warming environment, culture rich food, it is a great place to dine. This one is located in the Country Club Plaza a beautiful district with beautiful scenery and leisure shopping. You can also call in orders and pick them up! My favorite: Stuffed Shells, and Stuffed Mushrooms. Enjoy!"

  • "We didn't get to celebrate Valentine's on the 14th so we had reservations for 7:45on the 15th. We didn't get seated until 8:40. We were told 3 times that it would be another 10-15 minutes. There was no waiting area so we were bunched together in an extremely small foyer. However, once we were seated, my waitress was extremely nice and the food was absolutely amazing!!! I will definitely be returning, but not around a holiday or special occasion. I would recommend to friends and family."

  • "I always love going there when I have the chance. I usually go with a group, but this last time it was a date with my husband. The food was amazing and the portions are huge. The food may seem a bit pricey, but it is worth it because of how much you get and the quality. I also thought it was amazing and impressive to see our server sing Happy Birthday in Italian to another group of close by guests.The atmosphere was great and our server was very nice. If you really want to go, make sure you make a reservation since it is a very popular place. When my husband and I got there, they weren't taking anyone without reservations because they were booked."
