Diner Reviews
  • "We had a party of seven to celebrate a birthday. With four large dishes, including a delicious antipasto salad, there was plenty of (actually too much) food. Upstairs seems to be where larger groups are seated. There were probably four other similar sized groups around us, but we never felt cramped for space. Understandably, it gets a bit loud, but never obnoxiously so. The food was really fresh tasting and the service very good. Also, the dessert platter was a hit! With four different dessert items, there was plenty to go around for everyone at our table. Definitely a winner."

  • "Not picky here. But this place is bad. Decided to take family out since I was in Sac visiting. Nice service. Nice atmosphere although the place was empty. Ordered Caesar salad, pasta and chicken Marsala. Pasta was good. The chicken uneatable. The salad was it came from the Safeway salad bar. My wife asked for anchovies to liven up the bland salad . We were told- no such thing because " we are owned by planet Hollywood." The chicken was sautéed in sugar and then they poured a wine mushroom sauce on top. Actually it was inedible - no one ate it and the plate looked like a .... Ended up tipping the waiter 25 % somehow. I guess it felt sorry for him and he tried hard. Afterall I don't know how long this place will be in business"

  • "Buca di Beppo is a chain and used to be a good one. Great food. It somehow deteriorated over the years after Planet Hollywood acquired the chain. Menu is more streamlined to achieve the profit and not appeal to the customer. I think the balance between food quality and profits is not yet achieved. At least for me. I am not going there very often as I used to."

  • "We were not seated until 30 minutes after our reservation, then we waited for another 25 minutes to have our order taken. Once our food came there had to be some corrections made because the server made multiple mistakes. Overall the food was as good as any other Buca I have been too."

  • "made reservations about 2months in advance for a party of 24. was never informed that we would have to utilize the much more expensive option of banquet facilities for parties over 20...until the day of reservation when I called in to confirm our reservations. this was a wedding rehersal dinner party made for 8:00pm the day before New Years Eve. I initially cancelled the reservation because I was infuriated of the late notice..but being holiday time really had not other options so I called back and made the reservations for 20 knowing some of my party weren't going to be able to attend the dinner. 22 people actually showed Buco never gave us a hassle and were very gracious and gave us incredible service. The food was great too! thanx BDP"

  • "So glad I used OpenTable to make a reservation as my friend had called and there weren't any available tables for 10. I looked at OpenTable and was able to make a reservation for 20 minutes out. :) The food was awesome! We had 6 teenage girls and 4 adults. Got the spaghetti and meatballs, fettichini alfredo with chicken and chicken marsala. Also got 2 salads-Ceasar and mixed greens. All of the food was delicious. I personally loved the chicken marsala. Chicken was tender & the sauce was so tasty! We were in a room with 4 other groups so it was pretty loud. Service was good, especially with a large group. Dinner ended up costing us $20 each (which included tip)...I'd go there again! :)"

  • "Buca di Beppo has fabulous, fresh food. Their salads are second to none. Pasta is always fresh and perfectly cooked. We had 3 children with us under 6 and being kids, they were loud. No one cared because almost every table had a child or more with them. Made dinner very enjoyable. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone, but they need to be able to tolerate a certain level of energetic activity from diners and wait staff."

  • "A bit expensive. Too much garlic used in food. Seats were crammed. No leg room. I was celebrating 1st wedding anniversary, nothing special. Odd smell. Creepy upstairs. Location in Sacramento not recommend."

  • "The proportions served are for sharing-FAMILY style. So because there was only two of us, every person who attended to my husband and me said, "Oh, just the two of you? Well, you'll have plenty of leftovers" AND we did. From the friendliness to the hosting staff, to the kitchen staff who greets you, and the wait staff, everyone acknowledged my husband's and my presence and made us feel welcome. The next night we had the leftovers that tasted just as great as the night before. So the price was good if you make sure to eat what you bring home. Thanks Buca for the fun evening!"

  • "This place was loud and over decorated. Getting to our seats was a maze of turns and stairs. We were sat under a air vent blowing cold air the whole time we ate dinner. The food was way to expensive and not really good at all. Bland food poor service does not make me want to go back and spend that kind of money again. This place has way to many choices on the menu to be only family style. I personally well not come back or recommend this place to anyone."

  • "I hope you hear this a lot. The manager and the head chief of this location are absolutely the best I've ever had the opportunity to watch in action. I've set at the kitchen table at maybe one of the busiest of days and the head chief made sure we were taken care of and I got to say the blue shirt covers some territory in there and he also takes good care of us every time we go. . I know they have the same name and I can't actually remember it but they are awesome and that trickles down to the rest of the staff which makes for a great time and always good food. Thank You Very Much John Simmons"

  • "We went here for valentines day and had a reservation. Those who did not were not getting in, yet upon going inside there were a lot of open seats, so not sure why they were not letting folks in. Everything else was very good and we had a great server, though she did mess up our bill. She did however fix it and it was a good experiencece overall."

  • "My date and I arrived 20 minutes earlier than our reservation time, but we were seated within five minutes. The waitress was very helpful and lively. She got our drinks right away, and warned us that the pastas we ordered were going to be family-style. Although my date and I knew that, it was nice of her to inform us, since it was our first time there. The food came out to us within 10 to 15 minutes which was great. We thought it was going to take longer. The food was very huge to our amazement. It was good. However, the spicy chicken rigatoni could have been cook more thoroughly, and the linguini fruitti di mare could have been drenched in more of the tomato toppings and sauce. All in all, it was a great experience."

  • "My son requested this restaurant when I offered to take him and his family out to celebrate his birthday. We all loved it. We did order more food than we needed. In fact, one dish was inadvertently never delivered to the table and we certainly didn't miss it although I would have liked to try it. Server was most apologetic for the oversight. The chicken saltimbocca was the best I have ever had!"

  • "I was at Bucca's very recently and was disappointed in the food we had. The Fettichini (sp?) was not very rich and was kind of dry. The pepperoni pizza was not very good either. Others I know have said similar things about the food. However, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was fun and I would go back regardless of the food and keep trying different dishes until I hopefully found one I really like. I think if they improved the quality and tastiness of their food it would be a whole lot more popular."

  • "If you love Italian and want a fun experience, this is the place. We spent our second Thanksgiving in a row here. It is so more enjoyable for our family to go out and enjoy a big meal than go through the hassles of doing it ourselves. We are not alone in this thinking as the place was full. Very festive crowd. Food at atmosphere is great."

  • "We had a reservation but still had to wait for a table. Service was slow and being seated upstairs made it seem like they kept forgetting about us. It was hard to get an actual LUNCH menu, the waitress kept pushing the dinner menu. Food was slow getting to some of us in the party. A pizza was returned for being burnt. My pasta (penne w/ rosa sauce) was boring and the Caesar salad was not great. It was very small and had zero flavor. I actually thought I could get a better meal out of a box and packaged salad from the store. Another person thought their shrimp Florentine was flavorless. Maybe it was an OFF day for the staff and chef. I will give it another try but that's mainly because I received a gift card for Christmas."
