  • "We were seated right at the time we had reserved. The server was very attentive to our needs and prompt with the order. The food was out of this world. We had two large dishes - chicken glorioso and spicy chicken rigatoni - both were hot and delicious."

  • "Food was good and abundant. At first blush, it looks expensive; but, when you get it (and we had small portions), we had to take some home with us. Good location and ambiance was great."

  • "Went to Buca -Pineville NC for birthday. 6-21-14 Ordered spaghetti & meatballs, our usual. Also ordered 3 meatballs to go.(would not have ordered if we knew what they were going to be like) Spaghetti was not drained properly, creating a watery mess in the bottom of the dish. Sauce was also thin and watery. Meatballs were dry and loaded with basil. Sliced garlic in meatballs was very noticeably absent. We never send food back due to the possibility of "kitchen revenge" but would have liked to. On the upside the side salad and house bread were wonderful. Will attribute this to just a bad night, but if next visit is similar, will not return."

  • "We made a reservation a few days ahead of time, arrived a bit early and were seated right away even though 2 members of our party were not there yet. We were waited on quickly, drink orders taken and while we were waiting, another waiter/manager came to our table to make sure we were being taken care of. Food was enjoyed by all 4 of us and the experience was great. We left with a satisfied feeling. We also had a coupon we had receivd by email and were able to use it for our meal."

  • "Our experience was great! The service was fabulous, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was so fun and exciting! The whole experience was a great one. We were celebrating my mother's 66th birthday and this is where she chose. We have been there several times in the past, but this one was special. Thank you for adding to my mom's special day!"

  • "We had a large group of 15 for Father's Day Lunch. The waitress was OUTSTANDING. It was our first time eating at Buca and she explained the portion sizes, made recommendations on the menu, drinks, desserts. We received fast service, just an outstanding experience with this waitress."

  • "Bucas's is my families favorite Italian Restaurant in Charlotte. Food Service and Ambience is great all the time. It's truly a family restaurant for us. Definitely will continue to refer others as well. We even do special event holidays and birthdays there. Thank you BUCA."

  • "I have eaten at Buca once before at the. My first experience was outstanding. This time I was eating from the gluten free menu. I ordered a veal dish with artichokes. The veal was tough,dry & had the taste & texture of cardboard. Since there was no GF pasta the veal was all I had for my meal with the exception of the garden salad. The others at our table had tasty dishes. I think Buca could be a little more creative with their GF options. I ordered a cappuccino for an after dinner drink & was told the machine was out of order. Our server was attentive & did a good job of attending to the needs of our family - 4 kids & 4 adults. My family from VA will be here later this month, I was going to take them to Buca but now I am reconsidering."

  • "We go to Buca for special occasions, have always had a good experience with food, service, etc. Not so this time. We went on a Thurs nite for my daughter's 13th birthday. I indicated this when I made my reservation on Open Table but no one seemed to know when we arrived. They tried to sit our party of 4 at a table for 8 that was jammed in between another table and the wall. We requested a booth and were shown to the bar area, when plenty of booths were open in main area. Tried to order a side of meatballs but they were out of them??? They sang to my daughter with the candle but brought the check before we could order dessert. Had bartender as a waitress that was part of the problem. Disappointing experience, not sure we will go back."

  • "We decided to dine at Buca for my mother-in-laws birthday. I specifically asked to be seated at a table where we would have a little more room because we had 8 people plus gifts and cake. I was not pleased when we were seated in a booth in the corner of the bar. It was difficult to get in and out of the booth seating, and we had kids with us so the bar was not the best place to sit. The food was great although the waiter did try to argue with us that the tea was sweetened when in fact it was not. She finally brought us more tea. I am not sure if we will dine here again or not. I would rather dine somewhere else with great food where we have room to breathe when we eat!"

  • "For years our family has chosen Buca as the place to go for birthdays. We've done parties in the kitchen and generally just enjoyed the food and fun. I like that we can serve everything up family style and the servings are so generous. Highly recommend it. "

  • "The menu states the small portion will feed 2-4 and have leftovers, definitely not true. We ordered the baked lasagna and the portion was enough for one person only. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Pasta is cooked to perfection, sauces are rich and flavorful. Ambience is gaudy and tacky, just what you want at a place like this! It's busy but they manage crowds well. A great spot for families to celebrate special occasions. Try to sit in the kitchen or the Pope Room."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Food was great first time, second time was OK this last time the small 12.99 salad was pathetic. Service, Tristian, the first time could not have been better, second time service was horrible. This past time it was OK. They kept running out if tea and it wasn't that busy. I think we are done with what I really hoped would be a consistent trip for dinner for my family. Too bad."

  • "My family and I used to go to Buca di Beppo in Pineville a few times a year because of the great service and good value. We have not been for about a year (for no particular reason) until Saturday evening. We discovered the food quality has now went to hell and the prices are now totally jacked. I can easily say this was one of the WORST value meals I have had in a long, long time. Besides that, the waitress was rushed, messed up our order then argued with us that what she wrote down was correct (which was not what we ordered). We will NOT be going back to Buca."

  • "My reservation was for 20 and it all worked out wonderfully! Even with a group as big as ours, and the restaurant being packed, the service was still very fast and efficient. The employees were all energetic and kind. The entire evening was lovely. Not to mention, the consensus of my group was that this was the best italian food we've ever eaten. I would totally recommend Buca di Beppo for and occasion!"

  • "We had a short break during a conference. I made reservations and asked if there was anyway they could get us in and out in 45 minutes. The entire staf did everything possible to make it happen and the food was excellent. We sat in the kitchen so that we could have a wonderful view and to have an even quicker delivery. I was so impressed!"

  • "The past few years, it has always been tradition to celebrate my birthday at Buca's with my husband and a couple friends. I always get a reservation a couple weeks in advance to have dinner in the kitchen, which is a special treat. Our waitress was sweet, the staff was wonderful, the food was great, my birthday dessert and my friend's cannoli's were yum, it was such a fun evening. But then, we always have fun at Buca's!! P.S. A lot of folks do not realize that you can also buy the sauce. Yes, you can buy a jar of Buca Sauce. I always do."

  • "My husband and I visited Buca for the first time a couple of months ago. We were extremely impressed by every aspect of it. We went back less than a week later to introduce it to our daughter. The food and total experience was exactly the same. This past time, we made a reservation for my son's 23rd birthday. Again, the food was outstanding as was the service and atmosphere. He and his girlfriend loved it! Consistently amazing food, service, and atmosphere! Highly recommend this place for any occasion! "

  • "You really can't go wrong with Buca De Beppo - a good staple italian place and far better than that *Garden* italian place.... Service is usually top notch - though there have been a few times that it appears the servers care more about socializing and watching football than actually waiting tables. That said, I will continue to go back.... "

  • "The food was good although for two people, it can be expensive as it is all ala carte. So we ordered the entree and two sides and paid $60.00. The pasta dishes without salad are priced more inexpensive. Our waiter was lacking. Never came and checked on us.... Seemed like he was distracted. I would return though for the pasta dishes.."

  • "My husband and I both work out of town, and don't often get to have dinner with all our children and friends. We always have a wonderful time at Buca di Beppo! We have celebrated 16th, 18th and 21st birthdays there, as well as our anniversary and now Easter. The food is well prepared and presented and super yummy! (that's a culinary term :) ) Everyone enjoys it and the leftovers go a long way in our , now young adult, children's own refrigerators. The mixed drinks are interesting and there is always something new to try. Family favorites -veal parm, meatball, green beans and the anti pasto salad. New favorites - the apple gorgonzola salad and the dessert platter! We are a loud fun family and we had a great time- as always!"

  • "We made reservations here for Easter and although we arrived early, we were seated quickly. Our waiter (do no recall he told us his name) seemed very preoccupied with something else while taking our drink/appetizer order. (He kept looking somewhere and not even looking at as he was asking us questions). But as the meal progressed we seemed to have more of his attention. He even came back after the bill was paid and thanked us for the tip. I always get the veal parm and this time it was even better then the times before. I ordered the mussels marinara and was a bit disappointed that there were lots of mussels on the bottom that were not even opened. Overall for it being a holiday, our dining experience was a pleasant one. "
