Diner Reviews
  • "I had requested to be seated in the bar area in the booth. This is where my husband and I usually sit for an early dinner or late lunch. The table we were seated at was on the other wall that where we normally sit. There were two air vents directly above us. We were all freezing. I had a light jacket and put that on, it was still cold. My cousin was freezing. We asked our waiter if the air vents could be closed or turned down. He said this is a frequent complaint for this table, very common for customers to be uncomfortable. He said he had talked several times to the manager about not seating customers at this particular table. There were no other booths were could move to. It is a shame because we enjoy the food so much."

  • "I have to start by saying that I love idea of family style Italian dining. We took a large group of 12 to lunch on a Sunday and it took over 2 hours to order and eat (and we didn't order dessert!) Needless to say we spent more of the afternoon sitting in the restaurant than walking Pittsburgh and seeing the sights. I mean honestly, scooping family-sized portions of pasta into a bowl to share doesn't take 2 hrs at my house! To top it off, we gave our teenage cousin a birthday card with $20 in it and he forgot it at the restaurant. When we called back to say it was left sitting on the table, of course no one was able to find it."

  • "I went for a birthday dinner with my boyfriend. The food was amazing the staff was friendly and helpful. The restaraunt itself reminded me of the 1950's or a place the gentlemen in goodfellas would hang out. I loved it. The vibe bar staff and set up were very cool aswell including the bathrooms! One of a kind place with a very original taste in decor and art. Good humorous vibe. Food was the best quality and taste. The coupons I received were also a great deal. Since it was my birthday I got the free sundae and it was also huge and delicious. Plenty of leftover pasta for me to enjoy for another day aswell!"

  • "I'm glad you asked. We have been to Bucca several times. On Saturday, Aug 9th I printed a $10.00 coupon off the Bucca web site. When we tried to use it Bucca told me it was an expired coupon & we couldn't use it. Why would you put a coupon on the web site if it was expired????"

  • "The food was good, but not good enough for the price!!!"

  • "This restaurant needs to be updated and thoroughly cleaned, it felt older and musty. The food was overpriced even for their family style dishes. Our salad had almost an entire onion cut into it!! Our kids' spaghetti dishes were half the size of our dishes for only a fraction of the price. Would not recommend this place."

  • "If you love quantity this is the place for you and your family, friends, their friends and acquaintances to eat just ordering the small portions. Tira Misu desert was enough to feed 6 people sufficiently sized portions - and it tasted good. Missed the expresso on the bottom because it was so big. Food was fresh and tasted good. Chix Marsala was very sweet."

  • "The place is fun, and the portions are okay, but hardly the sizes they claim to feed. Your best bet is to join the eClub, and wait for a coupon. We dined last night, and our service was great. Mel took great care of us, and was very prompt and friendly. The food is okay, but nothing more than American-Italian food in larger portions. The Lasagna was enough for two of us to eat our fill, with some leftovers for lunch, and that was a large, which is for 4 or more people...and one of the people was a 75 year old woman. You can't judge this place against other Italian on Open Table, as it is not upscale. Its just a glorified Olive Garden, but at a higher price point. Not bad, just not great."

  • "We were a party of 15 ranging in ages from 7 to 87! The restaurant had something for everyone of us. We chose the caprese appetizer and the mozzarella triangles as appetizers and they were delicious. Our entrees were plentiful and everyone especially loved the eggplant parm and the chicken saltimbocca. Our server was helpful, accommodating and very pleasant, considering she had 15 people to please. We will certainly be back!"

  • "My second visit was with a larger group of people (8). We all enjoyed the food (appetizers, entrees, mix beverages, coffee, and desserts) and the surroundings. The only downfall was a party of 16 was seated next to us. Thank goodness we had finished our main course and was waiting for our fabulous desserts. The down fall was there was very little room to depart from our seats to exit because of the closeness of the chairs from each table."

  • "I've been to a few Buca di Beppos and the one thing I will say is that the food is consistent from location to location. Our waitress (Melanie) recommended the caprese appetizer special w/ avocado - and it was delicious. We had chicken marsala (sweet sauce but a nice change from all the tomato based options), spicy chicken pasta (nice spice to it) and chicken arriabiata (nice spicy with sausage). We had a 1.5L of bottle of wine for a great $37 price point and it was perfect with the dinner. The environment is on the louder side but more energetic than anything else. We were in Pittsburgh for a conference it was located right next door to our hotel (Sheraton Station Square). I would recommend making reservations for a larger group."

  • "The Quatro al Forno provides a nice sampling of their baked pastas, which boring ravioli aside, are quite good. The Italian creme cake was imbalanced; halfway through it ran out of whipped cream and raspberry sauce for the rest of the slice to taste good. Service was great though. It's a loud restaurant because everyone's trying to have fun."

  • "Went with a dinner party of 11. They seem to be in a hurry to turn over tables. We barely had our food in front of us when we were offered boxes and the check. The food was not very hot. It was just an average dining experience. I expected more."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We went to Buca for my best friend's birthday with my tween nieces and 15 month old son. Everyone enjoyed the chicken parmesan and giant brownie sundae. Our waitress was especially helpful as we had never experienced ordering family style. She helped us keep portions manageable and made appropriate recommendations. The marinara sauce wasn't exactly what we expected (a bit thin and mildly sweet), but this was a VERY minor point in our dining experience. We will definitely be back!"

  • "After the hostess attempted to wedge our group of 6 into an extremely tight table in a full room, we transferred to another room with ample comfortable seating. However, it came at a price regarding service. Our server was managing a large party and us at the same time, where we paid the price of delayed bread, lack of drink refills, and very slow service. Although the food was very good (and hot) and the server had an entertaining personality, the service was very disappointing and detracted from the overall experience. If you visit, have the shrimp linguine - it was outstanding."

  • "We like Buca food and service, but this occasion was not good. AC was blowing constantly on top of us and staff did nothing to fix after we complained more than once. Manager said that the cold didn't bother home. Eventually, the food got cold."

  • "Being a chain, this place almost always has consistently good food. The Pittsburgh location did not disappoint. Got seated quickly (with a reservation). Service was not the best. Our server got yelled at by the person cleaning our table and then after we got seated she was barely around. I would go back for the great food alone."

  • "Bucca is one of THE best chain restaurants going, hands down. Food, service & ambience makes this a winner no matter where it is. Wish we had one closer to home, as such we only get to one a few times a year."

  • "We had made reservations, but we arrived early. This was no problem and we were seated immediately. The service was very good and the wait staff was attentive. we had ordered the Apple Gorgonzola Salad, which was excellent! For our main course we had ordered the Veal Saltimbocca, which we shared. Both my wife and I had the same reaction, it was tasty, but tough. I did not expect this. We should have complained, however we did not so shame on us. They would have probably done better the second time around, but we had waited long enough and were hungry so we ate it without complaint. Two salads would have been better than the veal. If we go back, I will try the pasta and meatball and hopefully have better luck."

  • "Bucca di Beppo us a very interesting, very old restaurant in Station Square. There was a notable garbage smell right inside that the host agreed he smelled but other staff didn't smell. The food was "fine"--not amazing, but okay, and not everyone liked the family-style of expensive BIG dishes to share. The dessert was incredible and the staff was amazing and took great care of us--a huge party with noisy children. Overall a good place to go, esp with a big group, but a sadly old restaurant that could benefit from a little remodeling and menu change-ups."

  • "I made this reservation at Buca di Beppo because my daughter graduated from Law School that morning and this had always been a good restaurant and was relatively close to the school. I was actually embarrassed about the food. The Cheese garlic bread was pathetic with only 1/2 of the pieces actually containing cheese, our spicy rigatoni was so dry that it looked like someone had put it in a broiler and the spaghetti was so watery that the sauce didn't adhere. We did not want to ruin our daughter's special day so we didn't say anything to the staff. My husband and I spent a lot of money on this late lunch (2:15 PM) for 14 people and we will not be back. "
