Diner Reviews
  • "I am very happy to see an individual menu. One person was unable to eat what the rest of the family order, she was able to order of it. The only thing was we had a coupon for a small pasta dish, which I received for signing up for their email, which we were unable to use with another coupon. I understand not being able to use 2 coupons for 2 for $40 or $10 of 30..but it would've been nice to be able to use the small pasta dish coupon too."

  • "This was a last minute dinner and I was impressed that I was still able to make a reservation 2 hours prior. I was going to be late and I called and they were very accommodating to the time change. As soon as we got there we were seated, we didnt wait one minute, just walked in and were seated. The service was great, but the wait time was a little off. We were waiting for so long for our garlic bread, our salad came out before the bread which sucked but ok. Food was absolutely amazing and fulfilling. Definitely will come back and will use open table for the reservation."

  • "We've been going to Buca for years. Recently, we've noticed some changes in either the recipe or quality of their food. There seems to be more pepper and salt. This change is consistent across two cities (San Jose & Sacramento). Their olive oil supplier seems to have also changed. The food is still very good. We will still continue to go to "Joe's Basement" but without the same relish we had before."

  • "We had a great dinner for my husband's dinner. We even discovered a new dish that we LOVED which will be a new favorite!! We made the reservations online about 2 hours prior and had to change it, with NO issue. We were seated promptly...which there were A LOT of people waiting."

  • "Crazy old-style italian restaurant, lots of cozy cubbies and insane wall decorations. Very fun atmosphere, good food served in generous portions. We have come here many times and will come many more. Service and food are both always great. Atmosphere is lively but not overwhelming. Lots lot places to sit where you can talk, admire the plentiful pictures and art of beautiful Italian people, and have a great meal. Note: volcano cake is amazing!"

  • "We were in Bucca on Saturday night. Our waiter was awful . Very rude and didnt listen which is also why our order was wrong . This is the second afwul time we have spent at Bucca . We will be contacting corporate offcie or h.r to file a complaint . Bucca is pricey and when you have customers willing to spend their money at your restaurant then we should have had a better experience . Thanks"

  • "We made reservations same day and were seated on time however we were seated in bar. Which we didn't realize that our "server" was the bartender. After our salad was served we realized we never received salad plates and my son told the server it's my moms birthday and he replied "oh". And left. We didn't get much service, no birthday song and my husband was not the least bit happy. He stated we are never coming back here! It was not a very good experience for us! :("

  • "I arrived on time for my reservation and was treated to a packed lobby (literally elbow to elbow), we waited about 15 minutes after our reservation time to get our table. The restaurant was very loud but is grouped into several rooms, so the noise was bearable and we were able to carry on normal conversations. I'd go again but not on a Saturday night, midweek is probably much quieted."

  • "It has been years since we've eaten at a Buca di Beppo because previously the food just wasn't good. This time we were pleasantly surprised. The spaghetti was, well, just plain spaghetti - but the fettuccine and ziti were very good. More than enough food for our group of 13 with just 3 dishes and a couple salads."

  • "The food was really bad. We ordered vegetable lasagne and one chicken pasta. The lasagne was overcooked and messy. The chicken in the pasta was rubbery. It wasn't worth the money we spent, so we took the food with us to give it to any homeless person."

  • "This is one of my favorite restaurant, however after this dinner gathering, I am not sure about this particular one. After we were seated, no waitress was present to serve us for more than 15 min. We have to ask a walk by waiter about our waitress because we waited for so long. Then a lady come and helped us. She is very nice, take our order, however, I can see she is very busy and also with a head phone...seems like she is also work on some other areas ...She helped us to take our order. Salad is fast. Then we waited for long time for our pizza and pasta. Finally, the pizza came, however it is kind of cold. obviously, it had been in the kitchen for long time. The pasta also kind of cold on the top,"

  • "I had made reservation and got there at my time. There were several people surrounding the hostess podium and one of them asked me my name and I told her I made reservations at 6:30. She found my name and while in the process of marking it off, the actual hostess interrupted her and, rudely, told me to to just wait to the side until our table was ready. After sitting for ten min. "Off to the side", I went back to the hostess and asked her how much longer, again, rudely, she said that they were getting it ready. We were seated after another 10 mins. Our server was wonderful and very polite and attentive. The food was very good and we will go again, but not to that location."

  • "This place was great! Went for my wifes bday, I let open table know thats why we were going, nobody did anything they did not know. That was a bummer. The food is great, the bread was soft and the servce was very good. I would tell everyone to go!"

  • "This place has the Best Egg Plant Parmesan Ever! BUT they used to be high priced but now they are so Ridiculously over priced that I refuse to go there any more. We had bought a discount cars at Costco and that is the only reason we went this time but never again. They have priced themselves OUT of my Business go good."

  • "I'm going to chalk this one up to the fact that our party went on Christmas Eve. It was packed. We made reservations so that was good. We were seated right away. The waitress seemed like she was overwhelmed. We actually saw her waiting on customers AND busting tables. Maybe they were short staffed? It took an hour and a half for our food to arrive! The waitress apologized and said the kitchen was slammed. I understand, but I've gone out to many other restaurants on Christmas Eve and never waited for my food so long in my life. The food wasn't that great. Maybe it was just a fluke because it was Christmas Eve? I don't know. The waitress never came back after we got the bill either. We had to flag down another waiter."

  • "More restaurants should be open. They overbooked and we walked out after having reservations at 7:00pm and we left at 8:00pm because more people were ahead of us despite making reservations with OpenTable."

  • "I realize it's Christmas Day, but I made the 7 pm reservation online, and we were there at 7pm, but we did not get seated until 7:45 pm. I don't think that was acceptable. We were really frustrated and hungry, considering two guests are from out of state and were just visiting. I still left a tip, but really, the seating time was not acceptable. I demand some compensation for the trouble and the embarrassment! Please forward this message to upper management. Thank you"

  • "We had five for Christmas lunch. We requested in the reservation a table that my 83-year-old mother could easily reach without the need to negotiate any stairs, in a relatively quiet area so that she could hear our conversation. Buca di Beppo took wonderful care of us from the moment we arrived. All of the staff was cheerful, friendly, and helpful. We asked about gluten-free dishes for my mother, and our waiter went to the kitchen to verify exactly which dishes were safe for her to eat. They were fairly busy, but our needs were always met quickly and cheerfully. We all enjoyed the experience immensely!"

  • "Try Buca! Husband loved the soup and salad. Unusual for him to comment on what he eats out. Best service we have had in a very long time. We would have ordered way too much food had not the waitress explained you served family style. Still had to take much food home. Had reservations - we were seated immediately without waiting! Loved that."

  • "We went there on Christmas Eve. with reservations for 6:45pm. We only waited about 10 minutes to be seated. The first waitress went to get our bread to start with and never came back, no water or anything else. Twenty five minutes later another person came by and asked us if we were being taken care of. We said that our waitress vanished. He said that he would take over our table. It took another 15 minutes to get our bread. The drinks we ordered at the same time as the bread came in another 10 minutes after he asked if we got our drinks yet.. Two dishes of the food finally came out but the 3d dish didn't arrive until we were ready to leave. That one went right in a box. We were done eating. No more Christmas Eve."

  • "I didn't want to cook for the family on Thanksgiving, so I had the idea to have the family dinner at Buca. It's a nice place for family gathering. However, the service was a bit kind of slow and difficult, so I thought, perhaps it was a holiday night, staffs are a bit of short because some of the staffs might be taking off that day. Thus i gave credit for the service somehow. Also, while at the dinner, I requested some more bread (2nd loaf of bread), yet when I requested one more time (the 3rd loaf of bread), the guy brought me a 'cold' bread. So i thought maybe that was a sign for me to stop asking for more. The guy who happened to be the supervisor told me 'let me call the service for you". I didn't think he was friendly though"

  • "We had a reservation for 7 people on a Saturday night. We've been to Buca many times, but on this night we had two newbies. We were seated in a large booth that really didn't work for us. Given that we had three big guys in the group the elbow room got rather tight. Our server was friendly, efficient and our food was delivered quickly, but not rushed. Kudos! The food was delicious with the only complaint being the Fruitti di Mare lacked in actual seafood (lots of noodles though). Overall, a fun evening."

We had a big table with about 15 people and the service and food was terrific. It was a little loud that night but all was great! Thank you..."

Not enough staff - lots of empty tables and a full waiting area. Finally requested dinner packed to go so could get to the arena. Special birthday dinner became hot dogs & popcorn. Saving grace - they gave us a nice discount because of the poor service and not being able to eat at the restaurant."
