    It started out pleasant until our ordering. When we asked for bread (rolls) we were told that "they did not deliver the bread". I saw other diners that had arrived after we did and was told "theirs were not with the meal and cost". I then ordered it and had to pay for it. Our 52nd anniversary was blemished by this. I was told that the chef had gone to the grocery store to buy bread. Somebody dropped the ball.

    Our main courses were delicious but the service was a little slow- the bread did not show up until our entrees did. On previous visits the bread showed up shortly after we placed our drink orders. I was not a fan of the cheesy garlic bread, there were rather large chunks of garlic which made it very overpowering.

    Little disappointed with the service ~ Made reservation to inform of hubby's birthday..........was seated in a loud, small room - not much for ambiance or romance. The waitress took our drink order and came back with drinks and bread - she had oil and vinegar, we asked for butter. We waited, and waited and waited............when our food was brought (by a different server) we asked for warm bread (ours was cold now) and the butter we had asked for previously. Food was superb!!! After dinner, I excused myself to ladies room and tried to find waitress to have staff sing "Happy Birthday", could not find her, but told another staff member and they did come with signed card, candelabra and song. Possibly waitress had too many tables or ???

    Our first time at Buca's in Town East. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. The service was prompt. The food was hot and very tasty. The only thing I would say I did not like was the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I think roasted garlic is more pleasant to the pallet. Overall, I was very pleased. And, yes I highly recommend it. I will be going back.

    Even though our server was new, he did a great job! My grandson (9 months old) grabbed my glass of wine (still almost full) and it spilled on my lap - the staff was quick to respond and replaced the whole glass! We had leftovers to bring home as well and it was also great reheated! We are new to this area and will be visiting this particular restaurant again!

    Daughter's 16th bday dinner party. Not happy with service. Waitress would disappear for long periods of time. Even the girls noticed. We didnt get bread with our dinner as it wasnt ready, we got it after dinner and the place wasn't even crowded. The food is better at other locations.

    We had high hopes going in on a simple date night for 2. Our reservation was honored and the wait staff was attentive at first. Salad and appetizer was tasty but the main course and the side tasted like something out of the frozen food section at Walmart. Add two glasses of decent wine and it felt like a $100 robbery. We had buyers remorse for days. The people are nice ... but we will never go back.

  • Tough Eggplant
    Disappointed
    Dined on 2/8/2014
    They were out of Vegetable Lasagna (hint: order more) so I opted for the Eggplant Parmigiana. The peel was left on, the eggplant was tough and difficult to slice with the sharpest knife and there was too much breading. The ragu was very good. I considered sending it back to the kitchen and I never do that. For the price, it should have been perfect. Apple Gorgonzola salad was great. Side of spaghetti was ok. Service was great.

    My wife and I were looking forward to Buca after hearing about it after we moved to dallas from kansas. We were very disappointed. Our server laura was unfriendly, she looked overstressed from her pregnancy and probably shouldnt be working. My wifes lasagna was cold although my stuffed chicken was very good.

    This was the first time we had tried the Buca in Mesquite and was disappointed by the service and the food. The one in Park Lane has much better service and food. We had to ask for bread and olive oil which is always provided upon being seated at Park Lane. The silverware we were provided was missing a fork. We ordered the salad and by the time we got the fork our meal was there and so it grew cold while we were eating the salad. We won't be back to this restaurant but will take the time to go down to the Park Lane location in the future.

    For the second time at this location they were out of their specialty, meatballs. But we weren't notified until after we sat there for 35 minutes. We ended up waiting for an hour and a half to get our food and were pretty much ignored by the waitstaff and the management did very little to apologize or accommodate. We sat around for 20 minutes waiting for a bill and finally had to go find someone to check us out. Awful service, ruined our Christmas dinner. We will go to another location next time for sure.

    We were a bunch of noisy women, meeting for dinner after celebrating our high school drill team's 50th anniversary (not that we were on that original team!). We were seated in our own room--which was great because we are pretty danged loud. Our server Rob was so AWESOME! He took great care of us and laughed and had a great time along with us. The food was good, but having our own room where we could talk and get reacquainted was great. Thanks to Rob and Buca di Beppo!

    When dining with friends and/or family at a restaurant, it's very difficult to enjoy everyone's company while sitting at a long rectangular table because you can't really see, hear or talk to everyone in your party. Buca di Beppo in Mesquite has a round table in what's known as The Pope Room. It was perfect for our family get-together of 9 people. Dining family style was also a big plus and everything we ate was very tasty. The staff also did a great job singing happy birthday for us. We will definitely return to Buca di Beppo for dining with a group.

    A group of us decided to go to dinner and we chose Bucca. It was a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and the wait staff was hilarious. They actively engaged us in conversation and made our dining experience a memorable one! They also were extremely gracious at the end of the night. We were talking and laughing and finally realized that the place was empty. We asked and the restaurant had closed but they never even asked us to go! We thanked everyone for a lovely evening and headed home!
