  • "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 have dined here several times and have always been very happy. The service is terrific. The food is wonderful. 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!)."

  • "This is a great place to celebrate an occasion. Buca di Beppo handles groups well. The service was excellent. We had a reservation, and although it was crowded, were seated quickly. The food portions were large, therefore great to share. The only minor issue would be if one person wanted something that no one else wanted, they'd have an extra large portion-with plenty to bring home. The food was tasty, and there were lots of choices. Overall, a great experience."

  • "Waited in crowded lobby well past our reservation time. Good was very over cooked, in particular veal was tough and crisp and the calamari was crunchy all the way through with breading very dark. Server was very good but even he could not salvage our bad experience."

  • "Food tasted very authentic. Our waitress did a very good job of making sure our meal and experience was great. We were seated in the bar area, at first it was fine, then more people were there standing watching a local basketball game. Understand...but was a little noisy after this. Feel prices are moderate when sharing, but feel as though the restaurant could spare the cost of regular garlic bread."

  • "Thought the food was much better than my last visit. the previous visits it was sort of bland, but this time it was really good. Resturant was very busy but they had our reservations ready when we arrived and was seated immediatly. Service was a bit slow but not too bad considering the crowd."

  • "The food is excellent! It's family style dining so the portions are large, and although it's a little pricey, you will definitely have leftovers!"

  • "Buca's is a great restaurant to take large groups because of the open atmosphere and huge family style food portions. Due to that fact it does tend to make it a very noisy place to eat also so I would not recommend it if you are looking for a quiet romantic date. The food portions are very large and good. The service or delivery of our meal was a little slow but the place was packed. Overall we enjoyed our dinner."

  • "won't go back soon - even reservation did not help. Can't imagine going there without having a reservation. Witnessed horrible customer service by the gentleman running the hostess station up front. He was so rude to people it actually made his coworkers uncomfortable. He yelled loud enough for everyone to hear that he didn't care if one of the groups waiting was unhappy because it didn't matter. They DID NOT HAVE A RESERVATION. I assume Bucca must always be full. Why else would you not care about if your customers want to come back. They don't care if I come back & that our burst was not even directed at our group. They were unhappy with us because we would not take the table in the kitchen. So Seated in booth that was too small"

  • "There were five people in my party. None of us had been to Buca before. We were all very pleasantly surprised! The food was amazing, I had the best chicken carbonara I have ever had! And the service was spot on-not neglectful yet not desparate for a tip. There is not one thing I can say negatively reflecting our experience. It was the perfect evening, right down to the check. I couldn't believe the amount we paid for five people to eat that amount of food, and have four containers of leftovers! Well below $100! Thank you Buca di Beppo!"

  • "The place was very busy for a Sunday night. I was surprised. There were quite a few empty tables though when we were seated so I wasn't clear why there was a wait but nonetheless, we were seated. Buca uses paper placemats and I could see the table clearly had not been wiped down and properly bussed. I realize things happen but it was pretty gross. The food was good though and our waiter was energetic."
