  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!!!!"

  • "We didn't want to make a fuss, our lasagna was luke warm,,then I told the waitress, she asked if we wanted to send it back and I said no, we really don;t like to make a fuss, but then I bit into it and it was cold, the cheese was crumbly. not melted, so we decided to send it back. the chef came out and apoligized and said it would be a few minutes, then she came back out and said she was so sorry but it was colder than she thought and that we would get it on her. that was just about the nicest thing she could have done. It was so nice of her. we have eaten at your establishment a lot of times, with different people that we take there because it is so nice and we enjoy it."

  • "Great time New Years Eve 2013 at Buca di Beppo. Can't help but feel Italian, which we are, when eating there. The music, family atmosphere, colorful lighting and great tasting food are unique. The sauce is a little different than most restaurants but very good. Not the cheapest restaurant (Wine and Sangria very expensive so be careful). Well worth it a few times a year though. Never had a bad dish and within the family we have experienced most of their meals. I highly recommend Buca to anyone looking for a great Italian meal in a fun, slightly bustling atmosphere. If you have the chance and right amount of people try the Pope Room for your dining experience! We don't reserve the room often but when we do it's always quaint and memorable!"

  • "Our first visit to this restaurant and we were treated very well. We were not rushed by our waitress or wait staff. The food was excellent, and we would definitely visit again. We felt welcomed by every employee there. We received a tour right after getting there, even through the kitchen, and were greeted by every employee we saw. Very much enjoyed our dinner!"

  • "Would recommend Buca to anyone who appreciates fine Italian food with an ambiance that is truly Italian. Love this place. We have added family dinner at the Buca to our Christmas traditions. Have been there not only for the past 4 Christmases but also on many other occasions and have never been disappointed."

  • "We were there for the first time as they were open on Christmas when we were traveling. We felt it was pricy but food was good. Got Beef Short Ribs for 2 and Potatoes for 2 - THAT'S we could afford ! I can understand the Beef but why would Roast Potatoes for 2 cost $10? We should have ordered off lunch menu but we wanted the Chianti Braised Beef and that was only on the dinner menu. Waitress was great and drink was good. I'd go back for lunch menu but not the dinner menu."

  • "Open Xmas day so that was good and the food was good but I was disappointed that a lunch menu wasnt available It was just 2 of us so the larger portions were too much and I was there at 1 pm so I thought lunch would be available but it wasnt the only thing was the dinner menu you had no chooice .. I feel that was a rip off"

  • "We had a party of 7 at Buca and even though the restaurant wasn't busy, our chicken cannelloni and chicken saltimbocca came to the table cold. Not luke-warm or even warm, they were cold (to the point that the cheese on top was hard.) We informed the waitress and both platters were quickly taken away and replaced with new, freshly made platters in about 15 minutes, and we got an apology and free desert from the manager. Other than that, the meal was good."

  • "Three people reserved for our T-day meal. Close to home, relaxing, no rushing, food was much better than we anticipated and the portions were just perfect for the 3 of us. WE left with very few leftovers and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We all exclaimed how perfect, wonderful the meal was and left the restaurant as very happy customers. The wait staff was most accomodating. The restaurant is close to home for all of us and will tell people how much we enjoyed the Thanksgiving Dinner."

The meal was ready the instant we wanted it, perfectly heated, and the waitress could not have been nicer. And there was no annoying leftovers or cleanup! Id do this next year!!! Thanks!"

  • "My friend and I always try to find a new place to dine when we celebrate our birthdays and this was one of the best! Just like the menu says a small portion will serve 2 people. We both ordered dishes and then shared and still took home plenty of leftovers. When I made my reservation on line I mentioned we were celebrating both our birthdays...the staff came to our table singing and they placed tall candle holders on our table for us to blow out. What fun! Great food, great place, great staff! We may make this our birthday place every year now."
    Dined on 11/25/2013
  • "First thing they took us on a tour of the place. That was neat. When we got to our table there were 2 birthday cards there for my mother and my son. There were also crayons and a coloring book for my grandson. Ordering was difficult because there are so many choices and you have to go with what the group wants. Difficult when everyone is trying to please by saying I don't care what do u want? Also the price was a bit more than I wanted to pay but the happy birthday singing waiters were pretty cool. All in all we had a great time."
