    This is our go-to restaurant when we have a large group. The décor is kitchy and cute, the Italian food is delicious, and it's fun to pass around all the dishes and try what everyone else has ordered. The service is always excellent. The prices seem high at first glance, but when you see how much food is on the platters they bring, you realize that it is reasonable for what you get.

    First of all ,I made reservations online with a confirmation call the next am. One hour before our arrival we received a call saying we needed to move our reservations one half hour later. We arrived at our original reservation time and was seated in a few booths (had a group of 10) in the corner near the bar. :( We ordered, some of our food came out late and 2 couples food seemed to be forgotten!!!! They brought our salad but the wait was unbelivable for the entrees for a few of our friends. Problem was, one of the ladies has gluten intolerance and couldn't even "pick" on the food of others to cure her hunger. It was a complete mess. Manager compensated with 4 free meals. The manager was very pleasant and apologized.

    The Apple/Gorgonzola salad that I usually get was not up to par. The mushroom appetizer was overpriced for about 10 button mushrooms. The chicken dish was fine. Molten chocolate cake dessert was very dry with only small amount of liquid chocolate filling.

    I will not be back to Buca because the last visit this past Saturday was awful. I meet a couple friends there for our semi-annual get together. It was so loud we couldn't even here ourselves talk. I had made a reservation 2 weeks earlier, however, we were put right in the midst a high school homecomings with a bunch of loud teenagers you could stay seating and were LOUD! Couldn't enjoy our dinner and our visit.

    Layout, design, materials and furniture do nothing to ease noise levels. Proximity of large, group tables (15 - 20 ppl) tend to sweep you away with a roar similar to a Wings play off game. But the food ... great! Really enjoyed ourselves.

    The food was great. Service was great. Enjoyed the atmosphere, very Italian. I would order conservatively unless you have a large crowd as the large portions on the menu are really large, unless you are ordering only one pasta. We ordered two pastas and a chicken dish, and it was way to much food for five adults and two children. I think this is a good restaurant for large groups.

    My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at the Buca di Beppo in Livonia. Meals are served family style, so if there are only two diners, they really need to agree on the entree and salad choices. No problem for us. We chose the apple gorgonzola salad and a medley dish with four pastas. The small size was perfect for us. We also had the mozzarella bread, but I would go with the house garlic bread next time. The service was excellent and there was plenty of space between tables to be able to have your own conversation. At a busier time, that may be different.

    Very poor service. I didn't get a dinner menu but a lunch one and the server didn't know the menu too well when I asked questions. I ended up ordering a dish that had chicken in it -which I didn't know- and I am a vegetarian. The side salad was $3 more even though the same exact salad at lunch is only $1 more. I expect to normally get the bread first then the salad and finally dinner. I got the salad an inner at the same time and later to the bread. I never got a glass of water. The waitress didn't come by for the longest time and I had I go out in the hallway looking or her. Very disappointing

    My husband and I took my father, mother and uncle there for Father's Day and we had a grand time. We ordered too much food, however, which is easy to do when guessing portions that are meant for two. We had two salads, two pastas and two desserts. Lots of chianti! The food was wonderful and the service friendly. The pictures on the walls are fun as well.

    The waitress never brought our appretizer plates, even when asked. She then brought us chicken parmasean instead of the chicken carbonara as ordered. This was fixed and taken off of our bill. This was annoyign, but not the worst. We sat near the bar area and were the oly table in this area which I thought woudl be nice for my son's birthday (which by the way we told the waitress and NOTHING). So the wait staff seemed to all come to the bartender to comploain about their tables and the bartender complained right along side them, if not instigating in some cases. This is not good to have a table over hear. Mad eme wonder how any of them had a job.
