Diner Reviews
  • "Celebrated my husband's birthday. Food was great. Service a little hit and miss. Server was a little too busy to attend to us perfectly. Kept forgetting to bring stuff, like lemons upon request, spoons for ice creams dessert, which btw melted in the hot plate she brought for the dessert. WE all basically slurped our dessert for the birthday party. Hollered us back from parking lot, because she forgot to pack and give my husband's souvenir glass, which came with his drink. We basically left it there, since she took for ever to come back with it."

  • "We were stuck in the way back near the sidewalk. Service was mediocre. Food was worse. We usually go to the Roseville location. My daughter's birthday dinner was pretty lame. Won't be coming back here."

  • "We have a group of co-workers that meet at Buca once a month. We all work from home so it's very special when we can get together and talk in person and honestly gripe about work with no management to over hear. We always get the window room because we tend to get loud. Our servers are always so fun and helpful too. And of course the food is always amazing and consistent."

  • "The food was good but the service sucked. Our waitress had three big groups she was serving for. Our waitress wasnt readliy available to us. It was getting kind of fustrating waiting to order refills. Then when we did put our order for our refills it took a while for her to give them to us. Then she forgot some of the drinks. It took our waitress a while to get our dessert and then to give us our check. But there was another waitress that did help. If it wasnt for her then our experience would have been much worse."

  • "Had a great team meeting at the Pope's table upstairs. Not many/any others upstairs but staff was sure to stay attentive and provided the same level of service for my business group that they do for me when it's just my wife and I for a romantic dinner. As usual, THANKS BUCA!!!"

  • "Great food, Great ambiance! The portion size here is incredible, when you leave, you feel like you've gotten what you paid for."

  • "The entrees were delicious and the portions huge. The kitchen was kind of slow that night, or I'd give another star for the service. I found the cannoli filling overly sweet. I was disappointed by the lack of steamed clams on the menu. It would be great if they had sfogliatelli on the dessert menu too."

  • "We had the spaghetti and meatballs and penne abariatta and both were excellent. The green salad was very good also. The complimentary bread was good but it could be improved,"

  • "The family likes to come here to celebrate. We all have our favorites but have no problem making selections that we will all share and enjoy family style. Its a fun place with great food. Everything was great once again."

  • "Service was awesome. BUT the group next to us was too noisy with kids crying and screaming. Buca should not seat party groups so close to each other. We had a party of 9 and we were seated back to back to a party of probably 20 noisy people. The server could barely get through. But she kept her smile and was very patient."

  • "The food is ALWAYS 100% delicious! It was my daughters birthday, so the whole family celebrated with a meal she & the whole family will love. I was happy with all of our entrées and most of the service. The only issue being that we felt a little forgotten about sitting in the back room with the window. The hostess & server said they would bring something right over to us but we had to ask multiple times & they kept forgetting. Eventually we just got up to get it ourselves because we waited a very long time. Otherwise, everyone there was very nice."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "We requested to be seated in the kitchen as it was my daughter's birthday dinner and it was FABULOUS! The chef came over multiple times to give us personal attention and we were served by every wait person in the place. She felt SOOO special! It was a bit hot in there, but absolutely worth it."

  • "It has been a year or so since the last time we ate at Buca Di Beppo. It was disappointing, as the food was not as good as it used to be. Also, we were seated on the 2nd floor and the room temperature was unbearable. My father suffers from health problems and we almost had to leave before we finished the meal because of the temperature. We requested that the air conditioning be turned up, but the request was not granted. We will not return to Buca Di Beppo again."

  • "I absolutely love the food and rge service is great only complaint the waiters do not even attempt to regulate the other diners about the conversations they have. This is a family friendly restaurant and every time I come here there is that one group having inappropriate conversation with no regard for the other patrons."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Food was excellent, service great. Had small mishap by training server and manager immediately comped us (was not necessary). Had fun time celebrating my birthday with my family. Will definitely be recommending this eatery to my friends. Can't wait to return and try some new foods on their delicious menu."

  • "When u have a group and more then one has a coupon. You should allow the person with the highest bill to use the coupon which would have been myself."

  • "The service was slow: we never were asked about water refills, we has to get up and get our own To Go containers, we waited over 20 minutes to get our bill after even after she took our dirty dishes."

  • "We started off with this lovely spritzy Italian Muscsto-nice and refreshing on this hot Sac evening. Score:"A"Then they brought this horrible bland, tasteless white bread, reminiscent of Wonder bread."D". They did bring a very nice olive oil and Balsamico. Next came this superb Frutti Di Mare in red sauce and linguini chock full of all kinds of seafood as good as any upscale Italian restaurant.Very tasty! "A+ We also ordered roasted red potatoes with rosemary, a lovely dish, lightly dusted with parmigiano, garlic, black pepper. lastly we had Caesar salad."A"This one is a rather unimaginative pre made with many important ingredients left out including anchovies which isn't even possible to add them"C". Some really good things some not so."

  • "When my sister, who recently relocated to Sacramento from San Francisco, accepted my dinner invitation saying she'd like Italian, I know exactly where to take her--Buca di Beppo. Being her first visit, she enjoyed everything--from the wall pictures and photos to the ample sized entrees to the to-die-for desserts. Service was fast and relaxed, and the meal was yummy. Yes, we shall return."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "This place was good. The waiter was a bit forgetful. He forgot our lemons for our water, and he did not deduct the $5 from our bill. Overall, it was my girlfriend's and I fourth time coming there. We regularly get the family style plates and share. Shrimp Florentine is the dish I recommend trying. "
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "Had a good experience I love how it was baby friendly not many restaurants have booster seats so that a toddler can sit at the table appose to a high chair, I recommend the meat balls, spicy rigatoni, buca salad and for drinks their sangria white or red are very refreshing I never have enough room for dessert because of the portions, always have left overs "
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "We were in the mood for Italian and it had been a while since we've been to one of these restaurants, first time to this location. I read that the small size was fit for 2 or more people so we knew we'd have leftovers. We orders smalls of the lasagna, baked ziti, spaghetti w/ 1/2 lb. meatballs, chicken parmigiana, and cheese manicotti. All were tasty. I thought the price for the meatballs was a little steep and it would have been nice for the bread to have been served warm instead of cold but otherwise, we will definitely be going back."

  • "We had the Pope room, which is a room with a larger round table that accommodates 14 people, with a big lazy susan in the middle. It was perfect for a large group. The service was amazing!!! "

  • "Thank you for making my daughter's grad dinner so memorable. Everything was tasty, hot and spicy. The only problem here was we were so full we forgot we really wanted canolis!! Our waiter was easy and tended to us well."

  • "We have been to Buca numerous times before and we never have a bad dinning experience. The food and atmosphere is nothing short of fantastic. The pictures on the wall are so entertaining and bring back memories of my New York younger years. I would like to mention that our Food Server (Macy) was exceptional. We will be back and will HIGHLY RECOMMEND Buca di Beppo to everyone looking for a great dining experience. Being able to make reservations on-line is great. I was able to make them any time of the day or night and also see what was available."

  • "I booked a reservation for 8 with only two hours notice on Mother's Day. Upon arriving at the restaurant my in-laws called to say that 6 additional family members would be joining us. When I checked in with the manager on duty Jeff and told him he didn’t look at me like I was nuts instead he rushed to make adjustments so they could accommodate our larger party. Once we were sat in a pretty private area, our waitress Paige came in immediately to greet us. She did an excellent job at making us feel like her only table. All of this terrific service and the food was delicious too! I would highly recommend this location. "

  • "I frequent the Bucca in my home town and so when given a choice for a Mother's Day meal on our way home from out of town I chose this restaurant and made a reservation. We were one of the first tables sat for lunch but in anticipation of many parties, we were sardined in an upstairs room. It was cramped and warm, service and food was so-so. I wish I hadn't been able to make reservations at such a busy time for the restaurant, it was an uncomfortable experience. "

  • "The food here has always been prepared well, that's why we continue to return for the dining experience! On our latest visit, there was a communion celebration and the service was lacking but the food was 5 stars as usual!"

  • "We went to Buca di Beppo to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Since her birthday is on Cinco de Mayo, Buca di Beppo (Italian) was very slow. The service was great and they waiter went out of his way to make it very special for my daughter. We have been to Buca many times in the past and will be going again in the future."

  • "Went to Buca di Beppo on Saturday evening for a birthday celebration. They seated us upstairs in a booth. It was very hot and stuffy upstairs and it wasn't comfortable at all. Unknown to me, it was prom night and there were two large groups of teenagers, all dressed up in formal gowns and tuxedos, having dinner before going to the prom. This made the upstairs very loud. I could barely hear anyone in my party talking. With all the people upstairs, it got warmer and warmer upstairs. Our food took a while to come out. Our server was nice and friendly. I will avoid Saturday evenings for dinner in the month of May for now. "

  • "We had family easter lunch there (i know little strange for easter) but the food and staff were the best. i would probably refer to ot as simple elegance. With a party of 6 they asked us first thing if we wanted a short tour. We did and it was a great start as all the staff said good afternoon, everything looked clean and service and food rounded out our almost 2 hours and never feeling like they were waiting for us to leave.
