    We have been to Buca's over the years, both in Minneapolis and Pittsburgh. The garlic bread we ordered was too crispy and lacked butter on it, it tasted only like garlic was on the bread. The trio seafood appetizer was over cooked for the calamari. We told the waitress about it and her comment was "our trio seafood appetizer is extra crispy". It lacked flavor. The pizza we ordered was good but a lot smaller than it used to be for the price ($17.99) and we added chicken to a penne vodka pasta and there wasn't much chicken added for an additional $4.99 or $5.99. Once again we told our waitress and she wasn't willing to discuss with a manager. We won't be visiting any time soon.

    While the chicken in the chicken parmigana was tender and the portion size was adequate for two people, the marinara sauce on them was a bit bland, the alfredo sauce almost appeared to have been canned, and the fettuccine noodles were beyond al dente, pretty much undercooked. The decor of the place is interesting, though, and the prices aren't too expensive. One big bonus for this place is that they take reservations online. Make a reservation before you go, and you'll walk right past the crowds of waiting people who did't bother to do so.

    A first visit to the Robinson Buca met all expectations: excellent good and ambiance. The menu was extensive, which took a little time to decide on entrees for a small group of four adults; however, that challenge added to the enjoyment. The price of dining, albeit higher than Olive Garden, gains value from the ambiance, which transports patrons to a restaurant in Rome, not Robinson. The wait staff excuded happiness. Our waiter took care of us well, and accomodated a few special requests with no hesitation. We felt welcome. We will return.

    My daughter spent her 21st birthday in Virginia while serving her 2 weeks in military. So after she back we took her to dinner...Buca's! I made the reservation on line for 6 people. We ordered 3 large pasta dishes and 2 out of the 3 dishes, the pasta wasn't done. We actually sent one back and the other one wasn't great, but it was tolerable. The manager came over of course and took it off the check. We normally go to the one in Pittsburgh, but decided to try this location even though it's a 45 minute drive instead of a 20 minute ride. I put on the reservation about it being her birthday and they did sing, but they don't give a free dessert anymore. We had a nice time and the appetizers where good but the main food wasn't up to par.

  • 46th anniversary celebration

    My husband and I were celebrating our 46th anniversary. We went with my daughter and her fiancé. My father used to have his annual Christmas party for the entire family there. It was a group of 21 people. We always loved it. He has passed away and this was my first time there since. Many, many memories. Our food was very good. I was a little disappointed in the lasagna. It was only two layers and fell apart when cutting it. I also found the meal to be very expensive. Our bill was $100 for salad, pizza and lasagna.

  • A Refreshing Twist on Italian Food
    MomnipVIP
    Dined on 7/7/2014
    My husband is Italian and a good cook too. So we rarely dine in Italian restaurants. But there family style concept grabbed my attention when I read the OT reviews on this place while visiting the area. The "cellar" ambiance made for a fun environment. And our waitress, Hannah, was attentive and new her menu well. She made great recommendations. There were only 2 of us and we were not famished, so we only ordered 2 items--a salad and the stuffed chicken entree, and both were great. We will be back with a larger group and a bigger appetite the next time we visit the area.

  • quiet dinner for two
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 6/17/2014
    The food arrived promptly, but the server seemed to be so interested in chatting with the family at an adjacent table that we had to wait for service at times, even when when we tried to get her attention (she was two tables away and the restaurant was not crowded). It was a hot day and it would have been nice to have our water glasses refilled. We had to ask for napkins four times before we finally got them. We have dined here previously, and it's a nice but a little overpriced. The food is good and has always been served hot and fresh, in my experience. They often run coupons that bring the prices down to reasonable levels. Service tends to be a bit spotty at this location, but better at the Station Square location.

    When we were walking up to the building with the neon sign, I thought of some basic chain like Olive Garden. The Ala Carte menu I have not experienced since college. I was happy to see it still being practiced. Our waitress was great she kept tabs on us despite having other tables in some of the other sections to tend to. Overall having an Italian background I enjoyed the restaurant and will recommend this place in the future.

    We had a 70th (don't let her know I mentioned her age) birthday party for my mother. Twelve of us at Bucca di Beppo in Robinson, PA. The service from Jacqueline was incredible. She took requests for items on the fly -- meaning she was not finished with a sentence when our unruly mob was already barking for drinks, apps, etc. All with a smile "sure, I'll get you that too." The food was yummy, garlicy, delicious. We had a great time. Mom hugged me and cried a 'thank you' to me. Wonderful.

    I was excited to have my bachelorete dinner at Bucca Di Beppo. We had a reservation and there were 8 in our party. They sat us at a large booth so half of us couldn't get out without everyone else getting up. The table they sat us at was also directly behind the waitress' plate station, but rather than trying to be courteous to dinner guests having a conversation, they seemed to bang and rattle the dishes as loud as they could. Then when we were done eating, but still enjoying conversation they asked us to move to another table or leave because they were getting a party of 15 and needed our table. That made me angey, but I didn't let it ruin my day; however, I will never eat at or recommend Buck Di Beppo again.

    I brought my family here for Mother's Day dinner, and I became hooked. My brother and mom have been to Buca's in Station Square before, but I had never been to one up until that night. I loved the atmosphere, the decor, how even though the restaurant was decent sized, the individual rooms made it seem smaller and more personable. my family is Italian, so we don't mind sharing food with one another, but for groups of people who aren't on the sharing level, or for someone's very first date, this might not be a good location to go, unless the guests are big eaters. what left overs we had, they didn't last very long!

    Our experience was very good from the bar thru dessert. We were waiting for the rest of our party in the bar and my husband made a comment about having chips or pretzels with our drinks and I think it was the MOD came back with chips.(nice touch) The food was good and a lot of it the service was good.We had 2 boys with us and the server was as attentive to the them as she was to the adults. All in all great experience. Mothers day is usually a zoo, Don"t believe it But make sure you make reservatipns.

    Having used the online reservation option, our party of three was seated promptly upon arrival. Our server came to the table and welcomed us almost immediately. Beverage orders were taken and warm bread (with oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping) was delivered. We ordered our favorite salad, Apple Gargonzola, and for our entrée, Fettucine Supreme. Everything was delicious. We ordered the smaller portions, but had more than enough for the three of us, with plenty of pasta to take home. Throughout the meal, our server kept the bread coming and our glasses filled. When exiting, we were thanked for coming and asked to please come back again. We definitely will! This restaurant is a winner!
