Diner Reviews
  • "The atmosphere was great and we loved our cozy table but the spaghetti and meatballs was mediocre at best; very bland and disappointing."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I had pretty high hopes for this establishment. Unfortunately, I will not go back unless suggested by another. The food was good but the pricing was too high. There are no options for individual dining. The portion we had was just large enough for two. We were fortunate to have ordered an appetizer to help us feel satisfied. The appetizer was edible but I would never suggest another to order. The night we went several items had been removed from the menu due to a transition to a new menu. Two items we had chosen when looking at the menu on-line were not avalable. The service left quite a bit to be desired as well."

  • "Overall experience was good. Food portions were great. The drink menu was very confusing on the take home glasses."

  • "First time there at Buca, live in neighborhood, thought it was time, to try, wonderful dinner for my wife and I."

  • "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!"

  • "Our server was very friendly & attentive. The staff went the extra mile & sang Happy Birthday to my mom. Great food & atmosphere. "

  • "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. "

  • "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!"

  • "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!"

  • "Our reservation was for Mother's Day weekend so we knew there would be a crowd. The servers were definitely prepared! 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!"

  • "As always, the food was good, the server was great, and the staff was professional!! Always get the same thing: linguine frutti di mare, margherita pizza and Spicy Chicken Rigatoni. OH AND, never expected this, but their coffee is to die for!!!!!!!Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! "

  • "A wonderful way to share a meal with a girl friend. We volunteer once a week, and having lunch at Buca di Beppo gave us an opportunity to talk and have a wonderful meal. Our booth was perfect. The time of day was excellent and we were not rushed, thus we fully enjoyed the meal and conversation."

  • "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"

  • "Our family gathered at Buca di Beppo in Louisville on Easter Day at the height of the lunch hour (12:15 PM). We had fortunately made a reservation and were promptly seated. The restaurant was very busy and service was a little slow on individual things, like getting bread to the table and asking for extra crayons (2 kids and only 1 box of crayons) but all in all it was understandable, considering the crowd. The food was very good; had one of their salads, veal saltimbocca, stuffed chicken and "spicy" rigatoni that was good but not at all spicy. We had a 7 and 8 year old with us and it worked well for them - the noise level is a bit high but this is a plus if you have kids along."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Food was great and came quickly once ordered. Server was terrible. Took forever to place order. Someone else brought food out and we didn't see server again until she brought checks. Was my wife's B-Day and as we were trying to leave she realized she forgot and tried to get us to sit down so she could get people to sing. She brought one other person? Will never go back. Too many other great options for Italian food in Louisville. "

  • "We always love Buca di Beppo. However the restaurant was understaffed with servers and we waited much longer than usual for our food to come to the table. There were numerous empty tables and when we left we noticed a large crowd of people waiting to get in. "

  • "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!!"

  • "Love going to buca for big family gatherings. Our biggest struggle is everyone deciding on which dishes to choose. My only concern when we go is it's expensive. So not somewhere we go a lot! "

  • "This visit was my first time. We celebrated my birthday. The reservations were easy to make online and our table was ready when we arrived. The food was delicious and more than enough to feed the 4 of us. The white sangria was superb. I could not have asked for a better dining experience or better food for my birthday. Job well done."

  • "The greatest thing about Buca's: you can order something as simple as Spaghetti & Meatballs and can tell that it is extraordinary. The pasta alone has a spectacular flavor; add the sauce and WOW! The menu has a lot to choose from and since everything is served family-style, you won't leave hungry. GREAT atmosphere at Buca's. My boyfriend & I most recently dined on a Sunday. We made our reservation, not realizing the restaurant closed 15 minutes after our slotted time. You would have NEVER known it. We got wonderful service and the general manager even made a point to come out and ask how our experience had been. We didn't feel rushed and was told "no worries" when my boyfriend apologized repeatedly about the late reservation."

  • "We have eaten at this Buca di Beppo several times, including our son's wedding rehearsal dinner. The staff at this establishment has ALWAYS gone above and beyond the standard fare and service. Great food, great atmosphere, and a great staff! Honestly, I would eat there more regularly if I lived closer."

We love dining here as a romantic get away, small family dinner and even as a place for our extended family get togethers (we've had groups of over 25 and the staff has always done a great job!)."
