    This is our 3rd trip to this location and I was not happy camper. I went to location as a friend of the party wanted to go. I had a coupon and was over charged w our meal. The manager was supposes to come to our table to review the bill and never showed up. The server took extra 5$ out of each of my party bill (2 seperate bills) and an extra 10$ From my bill. That's a total of 20$. When we confronted him he denied it even thou we had the proof.

    We reserved a group party table and were told upon arrival that we would need to be split up. When we walked in there was another party in an argument over the same issue. The person bring honored wasn't even at our table. The service was horribly slow, and waited nearly 45 min -hr for our orders to be taken. Three different people had problems with their order, receiving the wrong item or not getting it for 20 minutes after everyone else. The place was so loud it was impossible to celebrate between two tables. The food was good (when it was correct and finally arrived) but the service, atmosphere, messing up of accomodations and overall poor experience was a huge let down

    We had reservations for 8, ended up with only 6 adults, 1 child. One adult was actually sitting in the aisle, barely had access to the table. It was really too crowded to be an enjoyable 70th birthday for my husband.

    Our waitress was very weird. We had to ask for straws and bread, she didn't automaticly bring them to us. She brought out the wrong salad and instead of asking if it was ok, she said that it was fine and we could just have that salad. She kept trying to clean off our table when we weren't done. She also poured tea in my water. Over all it was a very strange dinner. Also they have raised their prices so we won't be going back any time soon.

    We recently arrived about 45 min early early for our dinner reservation for a large family group on a Fathers Day. After a little initial confusion, we were seated quickly. The service was efficient and friendly. The food was very good. Several family members had never been to Buca, so the family-style dining was a bit new for them. In the future, I'll try to set the group menu before arriving and give it directly to the maître d or server. That will prevent them from passing out menus, followed by a lengthy decision-making process at the table. Overall, it was another fun outing, which I've come to expect at Buca. I can recommend them with confidence.

    Our recent trip to Buca was so amazing! The food was terrific (as usual), and our service was outstanding. This was our first time having their pizza, and it did not disappoint. We had 1/2 peperoni and 1/2 Supremo Italiano. Both were delicious. Russ was one of the best servers we've ever seen. He was great with the kids and made sure we always had what we needed, yet was not overbearing. We usually get the Chicken Carbonara (which is to die for!), but can't wait to go back and try the Penne San Remo!

    BUCA is a shinning example of good food at a great price. A friend and myself found ourselves wanting something different so we decided on BUCA. My first impression upon arrival was a bit rushed as the host didn't ask for a reservation but only acknowledged the waiter to show us to our table. This could use a few improvements. Once seated we were great ed by a wonderful waitress who tended to our every question and need. We were also checked on several times by the managers. Our food arrived promptly and was simply outstanding. I would highly recommend BUCA for all types of crowds. The atmosphere accompanied by the service once you arrive at your seat is simply fantastic.

    We spent Mother's Day with my wife, our kids, our daughter's boy friend and his parent, and we could not have asked for a better time. The food was great and plentiful, and for that much food serving that many people, was reasonable price wise. . Our server (Russ) not only did a great job, but his personality is the the type that makes you want to come back and ask to be seated at his table. If you want an Italian food experience for a family (or group), I highly recommend Buca di Beppo!

    The welcoming young man at the host stand rescued our Mother's Day and birthday celebration last Sunday, May 11. We were wedging and our meal together as a family between two soccer games. We couldn't pin down a specific time for our reservation but decided to try Bucca anyway. They worked hard to work us in and serve us so that we could finish in time for that very important second soccer game of the day! Boy were we pleased with their service and the delicious food!

Buca di Beppo does an awesome job at preparing the food and serving it in a timely manner. My advice would always be, if you know in advance that it will be a "big restaurant weekend" make reservations well in advance!

    Our server was really nice and would have been even better if she put a little more smile on her face. Food is normally really good. Our Alfredo Supremo was a bit dry and our Margherita Pizza really didn't have much mozzarella cheese on it. Normally, we take big groups. Its a very good and fit restaurant for group/ family dinner

    My extended family celebrated Easter with dinner at Buca di Beppo. Very attentive and wonderful service. Our table was ready when we arrived and our drink order immediately taken. Plenty of bread was soon brought to our table as we looked over the menu. The portions for the small size really can feed 3 people. We ordered way too much food and everyone left with to go boxes. The salmon Sorrento was excellent as was the chicken parm. We started with cesaer salad which again, a small can feed 3 people. No room for dessert. Great place for large groups!!
