Diner Reviews
  • "Huge meatballs. The 1938 salad is the best. Baked ziti is amazing. And don't leave without trying the ice cream sundae. Made family style."

  • "Buca di Beppo did a great job with my mom's birthday dinner! While there aren't any 'private' areas, the way we were set up made it seem like we had our own space. Because of the size of our group, we pre-ordered all the food. The person I talked to when setting up the reservation and ordering the food was incredibly helpful. The varied menu we settled on had everyone happy and full! The service was also wonderful; they made sure the food came out in good time and gave us enough time to enjoy each space. And the food itself was delicious! The bruschetta and baked ziti were favorites, but everything was well-received. It was a great dinner overall and I would highly recommend Buca di Beppo for anyone hosting a large party. "

  • "The food is always good at Buca Di Beppo and we have always had great service. However, this past Friday evening was a bust with the service. The waitress was not friendly at all and did not seem that enthused about being there. We were a party of 7 and were crammed in a booth beside the kitchen. We had requested a private room or at the very least a quieter spot in the restaurant on Thursday, however, we got neither one. We will be back but last Friday night was quite a let down."

  • "My husband and I have eaten here before and loved it so we went back with family visiting from out of town. The many pictures and other objects decorating the walls definitely were conversation starters and added character to the place. The family style dining took a bit of explanation to our guests but the food was outstanding. We ended up splitting the baked ziti (small), chicken canneloni (small), cannolis, ice cream sundae - all to split between 5 adults and had leftovers of everything to take home . The only negative was that multiple folks in my party ordered sweet tea and said it was awful. However, since I'm not a sweet tea drinker I would definitely not let it stop me from going back."

  • "We were greatest warmly when we walked in and taken to out table right away. After 5 plus minutes waiting at our table a server came to out table and said "anyone helping you" we said no and she walked away. Huh, what?!? A few minutes later she came back to the table and took our drink order. She asked if we had ever been there and we said, "no". You would think this is the point where she would describe the menu concept of family dining with us or tell is how the menu is laid out, etc. It was like we were bothering her by being there. Someone brought out our food, and we never saw her until she brought us our check. The food was subpar, cheap tasteless Italian. I won't go back and I wouldn't recommend it."

  • "We had my parents 50th Anniversary Celebration Lunch at Buca di Beppo. I received a confirmation phone call for the reservation the morning of. We were seated on time at a table for 10 where we could all talk and hear each other. The server was friendly, gave good recommendations, and did not hover or rush us. The food was fresh, the portions were generous, and my parents were very pleased. I would highly recommend."

  • "We had a great time at our birthday celebration. The food was very good and there was variety enough to satisfy all including the kids. The only negative was that we brought a birthday cake and the greeters did not let our server know. But it was all good!"

  • "We went to Buca to have dinner with a family that had never been to Buca before. They enjoyed the calamari as an appetizer the best. We raved over the salad. The apples were so crisp and the cranberries were just right. The entrees were plenty and we shared with plenty to take home. The waiter seemed flustered and it took a while for us to get anything. Our bread that we asked for at least twice never came. The waiter took plates without asking and then reached over some of us without excusing himself. But all in all we were ok. We will return because maybe it was just an off day for our waiter."

  • "We get with our family and friends at least once a month. For a group of 8 to 12 people (including kids) this is a great place to meet. Food is ordered & served family style. With a large group you can order different things and share. The portions are very generous. A large salad was enough for 8! Service is good even when they are busy. Bottom line we had a very nice time and enjoyed sharing food with great company."

  • "The food was what I would call " so-so" Nothing stood our. The waiter seem to have little interest in our table. The area we sat was near the kitchen, very noisy. Will not plan on returning"

  • "Buca is a great place to eat for a couple, a family,a large group, you name it. It has a bar area as well. The immigrant Italian food is great, better than comparable chain restaurants such as Olive Garden. I've ate their for many different occasions over the years with friends, wife, and family and it has always been a great experience."

  • "It was my first time there I would definitely go again. I took 5 people with me, ordered 3 plates with an appetizer and one desert and we still had to take food home. The food was very good and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a wonderful place to eat, relax and have a delicious meal. Very good."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Good Italian food in casual and fun environment. You order dishes to share. We started with the seafood trio, mixed salad and cheesy garlic bread. Love the chicken parmigiana and prosciutto stuffed chicken with pesto sauce. They had a new item of clams and linguine in a red sauce which the seafood lovers enjoyed. A bit noisy but fun and casual. Everyone loved the food."

  • "Loved how they walked us through the kitchen area upon arrival! Our server was knowledgeable about about the menu, wines, and items available. He was experienced, well groomed and entertaining. Very warm personality. Food was slightly cooler than I like and would have been better a little more warm. ."

  • "the food and service here was impeccable. The one and only thing that was a negative was the noise. We had a large party seated next to us who were very loud, but they were enjoying themselves."

  • "We have been to a few Bucca's and this was the first time I was disappointed with the food. We had six people in our party and the main dish came out not as fresh and hot as it should have. Our waiter did not bring it out and was slow to get back to us. Some of our food was hot when it came to the table. The waiter never asked my husband if he wanted another beer, We would go back again, but not for awhile."

  • "Semi self service. We did have a large group of 8 celebrating a very special birthday. Our server seemed frustrated we weren't ordering fast enough, and when posed with questions about the menu. Great place for group pizza with the fam' or small family/friends dinner, but special occasions- not so much."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "The area of the restaurant we sat in was full of patrons apparently celebrating birthdays. The small room seated 40+ people and the noise level was very high at times to the point where we couldn't hear ourselves talk at times. We had older children in our party but were surrounded with people who had younger children. We would have preferred a more subdued area of the restaurant and next time I make a reservation I will request that we are put in an area where there are more adults and less children, when you spend over 200.00 on a meal you would like to be able to hear each other speak. The food was excellent and everyone enjoyed their food."

  • "While we had reservations for 7:00, we weren't sat until around 7:40. Then our table service was very slow. It was after 9:00 pm before we were done. The food was great as always but I think they must have overbooked. I thought the point of reservations was to alleviate a long wait."

  • "My husband and I took his parents and some friends to Buca because they always hear us talking about this place. We had a great time. Everyone was very impressed with the food, and enjoyed each item that we had. There was NO lack of food! The only disappointment was the double dark chocolate cake. I built it up because it's the reason I first fell in love with Buca, but it came out dry and with no sambuca sauce. Disappointing!! But overall, great choice for a group and a very nice time had by all."

  • "My co-worker use to rave about this place. It wasnt until this Valetines Day that I decided to give them a try. I missed out because I should have gone sooner. This is for sure my "Favorite" resturant. Now I know why my co-worker mentioned he made it his "thing" to visit Bucca di Peppo at least once very month. Cheers because that will be my new "thing". This resturant was the boom, the food was so very well prepared that it made your mouth water for another bite. The servings are big and hard not to eat all of it."

  • "Enjoyed the food for our Valentines dinner at Buca... The food was delicious. Due to the restaurant being double and triple booked, service was a little slow even with reservations- they were 20 minutes behind schedule. I recommend them for anything but a romantic dinner on a special occasion. It's a great family setting... Not so much for couples wanting a romantic dinner."
