  • "Ordered salad without meat(we're vegetarians) needless to say there were meat chunks in the salad. The plates had dried dirt on them, then I found a long black hair in my pizza. Garbage covered the floor under my table. Not going back!"

  • "We enjoyed the food, atmosphere, but very dissatisfied with the way our server rushed us out. We wanted to take our time eat enjoy instead she took our food away boxed them. When she brought back to table she didn't even bother taking our dirty plates. Didn't like that at all. Hopefully if we ever come back we won't have her."

  • "Lots of families had the same idea--treat Mom to an "Italian family style dinner" for Mother's Day. The restaurant was packed and that did cause a problem for the kitchen. Our server had to apologize quite a few times for the slow food preparation, from the baking/serving of the bread to the long wait for dessert. To their credit, they realized the problem and desserts were free. No need to talk to the manager!! The chicken marsala was delicious, the di Beppo salad was very crisp and tasty and next time we'll order more meatballs!! We will return, even though it is an hour drive away for us. "

  • "There was an air exchange blower near our table which was very noisy. The bread was "in the oven" and we had to ask our server twice if it was ready yet. Our server was so soft spoken that we could barely hear her; the blower noise didn't help matters. Service was slow and the food was mediocre and overpriced for pasta. Won't make a effort to visit anytime soon. Maggiano's is much better."

  • "Went to dinner on a Monday night with friends. It was not very busy but the food was great. Service was very good with a manager stopping by making sure our needs were being met. We were able to visit with our friends and have conversation without load noise or music. This restaurant has always been a good choice for a meal out. We'll be back."

  • "Was very good considering that this is a chain and we don't go to chains very often. Our 10 year old granddaughter had a great time."

  • "I'm half Italian and have family who grew up in the old Italian community of the Bronx in NY in 1930-1960's. The decor reminded me of some parts of that era. The only thing I didn't care for is some of the risque pictures that are posted. For example a woman holding two large melons over her breast, or a woman with a noddle that feel on her breast, or a woman who is wearing nothing but a small bikini. My wife and I were celebrating our 1st year anniversary there and seeing those pictures around was uncomfortable. The food and service was excellent, but poor choice on some of the pictures. Not the kind of thing one would not only want kids to see, but also others. Too perverted. The portions may be for the family, but not the some pictures."

  • "We had a Great Lunch!!! Service was GREAT!! Very pleased we were in the Pope Room. Loved all the pictures on the walls. All very enjoyable, brought back some memories of different movies we've seen. Cannot think of anything to add or subtract. I know some of us will be back again. Some say it was to far to travel. We live close to Gettysburg, Pa. "

  • "Loved the fun atmosphere. We were little crammed at our table, I had requested a round table when I made reservation but was told we couldn't request on a sat night. Food was great except for baked ziti, it was dry and a little hard not much cheese or sauce. Wish we would have had a little help with ordering as we hadn't been there before. Service was so so. It was fun for a birthday meal!"

  • "Our overall experience was not great. The food was mediocre. We used a 4 for $40 coupon and were disappointed with the main course (baked ziti). The food not part of the coupon, was fine, but somewhat expensive."

  • "We had a table of eight including two children to celebrate two birthdays. It was fun for everyone to order a little of this and a little of that and we all shared everything! It was a lot of fun. Our table was ready when we got there and everyone was very friendly and accommodating! A great time!"

  • "The food is always fresh and tastes great. Everything is cooked just right too, they don't overcook anything. The deserts are really a treat as well."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "This place was top notch as far as quality of food and service. The tables were a bit close together but I guess that is the vibe they are going for. Otherwise I'd definitely go back again. We got the mini meatballs for an appetizer (which are amazing), Prosciuttio-stuffed chicken and a small flat pizza with oil and cheese. Both were excellent although the pizza could have been a tad crispier."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Was told by waiter Mussels could be ordered as an entrée. Then told our coupon for $15 off would not be honored because Mussels were in the computer as an appetizer"

  • "I reserved for a group of high school classmates, graduated 49 years ago. We were beginning to start planning a reunion. It was quite fitting that we had enough diners, 11, to sit around the Pope table. All guests were quite pleased and we will return for future gatherings. The food was great and the big round table was conducive to conversation among the group. I must also mention that the service was excellent considering the size of our group at one table."

  • "I surprised my husband for his birthday by having a few close friends meet us. To my surprise, it was the first time for two of his friends. We have dined at Buca's before. The food was amazing, our server was great and we had a blast!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "We arrived at 2pm for an early dinner, as none of our group likes crowded dining. The service in this resturant is exceptional, especially the day shift. Food is served family style, and they serve the best eggplant in the area. None of us drink so I can't comment on the alcohol. This is a wonderful date resturant, the seating is comfortable if not overly private. A trick of architecture keeps conversations from other tables from being audible. The pricing is a little on the expensive side which keeps it from being on our 'regular' restaurant list. All in all I highly recommend this restaurant for a nice evening out with your significant other."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Never had a bad meal here and this time around was the same. Tried their steak special and loved it. My Granddaughter enjoys their pizza's tremendously. Service this time around was even better than last time. Love coming here for dinner with the families!! Can't ask for more between the great food and friendly staff!!"

  • "Buca di Beppo in Reading was a good decision for us on Valentines day. We had made a reservation of course! A young couple walked in right before us and didn't have a reservation and were looking at a 90 minute wait! We were seated promptly and served quickly. The waitress was very nice and knowledgable. The Eggplant Parmesean and ravioli was delicious. I prefer an environment that's not as loud but the noise level wasn't bad and it fit the restaurant."

  • "we have been in the pope room 3-4 times, and its always great!!! Rich, our server was awesome!!! Just a great time. I cant say this enough."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "I was extremely disappointed !!! The ambiance is cool, as well as the tour of the kitchen! But we must have gotten a waitress on her first night. We waited for ever for our food! When we finally got our food I was shocked at the portions, as expensive as this dinner was! Our meal arrived, and I waited awhile for our garlic bread. After about 10 min. I had to ask the status on it. Well then it finally came. Yes I got a bottle of wine at $26.00 but for what we got $86.00 is ridiculous for two people!!! Stay away from this place!!! Go to Romanno's or Carrabbas . The money spent at Bucca would feed four people there!!!!"
