- Very glad I chose Buca!happyandfullDined on 9/10/2014I made this reservation for myself and my immediate family to celebrate my 30th birthday. Our waiter was very friendly and very helpful. The food was delicious and the room we got was awesome - The Pope Room! my family thought I reserved it but I guess we just got lucky. It was intimate even with 10 people and two kids. We rarely go to Buca, mostly because of the amount of food given, but when we do it's for special occasions and we are never disappointed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Everything Was OkaySombreroDined on 9/6/2014Everything was okay. Nothing was really great. I will eat there again. The biggest drawback to this place is that it is difficult for each diner to just order their own meal, seperate from the others!Special Features:
- Just decided to goOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/1/2014Went to restaurant, was really impressed by the service especially our waiter. Courteous knowledgeable and made my kids part of the conversation. Thanks.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Kitchen tableEluqVIPDined on 8/31/2014The kitchen table for kids is the bomb. I loved it. Good food. Humongous servings and good taste. Spaghetti with meatballs and penne with added shrimp, really good. Rosemary side potatoes could be skipped. Colossal brownie Sunday, well, colossal and delish. CheersSpecial Features:
- Family sized deliciousDeliciousnessDined on 8/22/2014All of the dishes are HUGE! Which is perfect for our family! We always try new places every Friday night for dinner and this was the perfect choice! We all shared different things and it was DELICIOUS! I would not recommend it for just one person as the portions are for more than one person!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- great birthday dinnerOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/17/2014Great food, very friendly. ..would definitely go again!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Food Not So Great ServicesummertimeDined on 8/15/2014I came here for my wedding dinner with a reservation.When I got there they placed us in a small room and did not have enough chairs for everyone so we had to move and wait to be seated again.It took a while for food and drink to come out we had one server with no one else helping her we were a table of 20. The server was nice but when she took our payment she charged everyones card twice resulting in all my out of state relatives alot of inconvience . The rest of my wedding weekend we had to replan because of the overcharge to everyones account . The waitress promised that the transaction did not go through twice which it did very disapointed this hindered my wedding weekend and we didnt even get to talk to a manager so unprofesional .Special Features:
- Gabe, was a great waiter!FarmdalecircleDined on 8/3/2014Enjoyed celebrating my Birthday and my Son in Laws promotion. Great Family place!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Pleasantly surprisedWayneDined on 7/18/2014We hadn't been there in a long time. We will be back!Special Features:
- Great Lunch ExperienceOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 7/13/2014We chose this as a last minute lunch option for our sunday afternoon family lunch. They gladly accepted our last minute reservation for 7 and seated us right away upon arrival. Everyone that we crossed paths with greeted us going in and coming out. Service at the table was prompt and thorough and everyone was satisfied with the very generous portions. Not the first time here and definitely won't be the last.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not worth the money.KshabDined on 7/12/2014First and last time at this establishment. Ordered muscles for appetizer and when only half the shells were open, they had to bring a new batch. Veal parm was tough and flavorless. The server warned us that the veal was not good but since that's why we went there we decided to try it anyway. He was right. Overall the food was etible but not worth going there again. Not worth the money at all.
- Dinner with family from NYBoot143Dined on 7/11/2014Outstanding meal and service - couldn't ask for any better. We have not been in a while and this was better than we remember it. We will return and will recommend Buca to our friends.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best Meal in sometime.OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/10/2014What can I say. I took my girl here and this was my first time dining here. Waiter was very knowledgable and helped us review the extensive menu. Can't say enough. Best time in years. Don't miss this place. Perfect for that special personSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- gourmetDined on 6/22/2014Had a late Dad's Day celebration with party of 4. Were seated in the bar area. Music was very loud, but waiter was kind enough to lower to volume so we could hear each other. As usual, our food was delicious. The waiter was fantastic. The owner?/greeter was nice enough to take some pictures of us before we left with our camera & also an iPhone. Had food left over for lunch next day. Do feel the dinners get pretty pricey if you want bread, salad, etc., which are all extra charges. Really think bread, at least, should be included with dinner.Special Features:
- Needs Improvement!!!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/15/2014When we were seated it was in a room with 2 large groups that had young children that were very loud. I could not carry a conversation with my husband with out kids yelling. Then there were 2 birthday in that small room that made it even louder. We had 2 servers come to our table because they were unsure who's table it was. Then we were served our food with out any silverware. We had to flag someone down so we could eat. Then our waitress blamed someone else as to why we did not have any silverware. Overall the food was good but service and location our where we sat could have been better. This is my husbands favorite place to eat so we will be back. Like I said above its good for groups not for couples!!! I would work on that!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- FoodEatouthealthyDined on 6/15/2014The rest of my party liked the food. I didn't enjoy the apple salad though. I thought the salad would be crisp. Some of it was crisp but a good portion was wilted. I ate very little of it at the restaurant and threw the rest away when I got home. It was tasteless and really threw my money away on that selection. We rarely eat here because there isn't a good selection of low carb entrees. But thought my husband would enjoy the pasta for Father's Day.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 6/15/2014I had wished the wait staff read my request for table placementSpecial Features:
- the wrostbad123Dined on 6/13/2014The wrost expirience ever, the food had no seasoning was really blend. We were a group of 8. 2 orders did not come forever people had to wait a long time for the food. I asked for a kid spoon, took forever to get it and still the spoon was huge. HORRIBLE!

- Not great serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/15/2014Had a small gathering for a co worker, the waiter disappeared a few times, took awhile to get what we need...Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Last Minute Mother's DayDillOnTheFlyDined on 5/11/2014I made this late reservation for 4 people, while on the plane flying from Houston, TX to Phoenix, AZ. It was so easy to use opentable.com for the first time. We had a great time at Buca. The food was great and as always we left with take-out boxes. We ordered a Large Calamari, Small Garlic Bread, Large Spaghetti and Meatballs, Large Chicken Parmigiana, and a Large Margherita Pizza. It was all fantastic. My only complaint would be that we had to sit at a table, in what seemed like the smallest room and only room being used at the time so it felt a little crowded. At the same time, what more could you expect for an 8:15pm dinner.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food!OpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 5/11/2014Took my mother-in-law as a surprise and she loved it!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Made a mom happyhappymothersdinnerDined on 5/11/2014George does a fantastic job managing this restaurant and our server Donnie was great and made sure mom had a wonderful dining experience and the kids were happy too.

- CelebrationAngelDined on 5/11/2014Took our mother to Buca's for Mother's Day and had 15 in our party. Our server, Megan, was wonderful and she was given help by other servers to be sure our table had everything we needed. My mother really enjoyed her day out with her children and grandchildren. I recommend Buca's for any special occasion or just a dinner with the family.Special Features:
- Prom Night Perfectionbuccafanatic7Dined on 5/10/2014My daughter wanted a place to take her group for dinner prior to their prom. I recommended Bucca di Beppo. This restaurant has been my go to for all my special occasions for the past few years. I had my waiter Donnie treat my daughter as though he had known her for years. Not only was the food superb as always, but Donnie made my daughter and her group of 20 prom kids , feel as though they were family. thanks to Bucca's management and staff for such a great and unforgettable evening.Special Features:
- Very big portions and good foodDatCanadianDined on 5/9/2014Frankly if you are a normal human being you will have plenty of leftovers after you're done eating. I took my mom there for her birthday and it was just me and her and we ordered chicken Parmesan and a pasta dish (forget the name right now) along with a salad and calamari, this was too much for us. However the god was great and the leftovers were good the next day, definitely need a group of at least three or four in order to get more food. Atmosphere is cool, you walk through the kitchen and can see the cooks preparing meals, the dining area is also interesting, no windows but there is no view in the area and the interior is decorated well with Italian themed knick knacks and postersSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- AS ALWAYSenjoygreatfoodDined on 5/4/2014As always, this is our favorite restaurant. For Italian food there is no other place we would go to. It is as close to original as if you were in Italy. ie: pending on which province in Italy.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Family DiningdjtgvDined on 4/27/2014We have been to Buca di Beppo in Mesa several times over the last few years and have never been disappointed. The food and service is always excellent. Our 2 grandchildren were visiting us recently and our 12 year old grandson has a severe peanut/nut allergy. We indicated this under special requests when making the reservation online. When we arrived they were aware of this and our server took every possible precaution with regard to ordering, food preparation, etc. Our grandson said it was the best Italian meal he'd ever had and declared it 'better than Olive Garden'. A great evening!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 4/26/2014We came for my mom's birthday. She had never been to buca before and was very impressed. Her and my dad told me several times what a good idea it was to come here and that the food was excellent!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- eldentayhungrycasanoaDined on 4/26/2014Sat night rush. The quality is starting to go down hill. Spaghetti noodles were over cooked again. 2nd time in a row of visits. Your meat sause seems to lose it's tomatoe base. Not the same quality I have had in past visits over many years. I tend to take dates to impress but sadly you are becoming a corporate chain. It truly is a chefs quality that has me doubting if I should return. P S listen to your voice recording to see if you are impressed with the voice a d tone.hungry
- Wine selectionwineyDined on 4/20/2014I have already answered on the web site that the food was great as always but that we were very unhappy to see they took our favorite wine off the list. We received an answer back, but really didn't tell us much. We hope that those in charge of the wine list will take a good look at it & maybe ask for more feed back from their guests.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Big menu, great food, colorful!maggielnbDined on 4/20/2014Went here with the family for Easter - had hoped for a brunch menu, but the dinner menu had a lot of good choices. Service was fast and friendly and the food portions were huge! What they serve for 2 people is more like for 3-4! Good Italian food and the room was tastefully decorated with lots of color and pictures everywhere, including the ceiling. We needed highchairs and they had more than enough. Family-friendly spot! I would definitely go again!Special Features:
