    We took family members to Buca at 3 p.m. and were very pleased because of the low noise level, great service and perfect sized table for our group. Once the music came on it wasn't as easy to chat, but most of the meal was perfectly timed. Each family member chose something different so the small portions worked best for us with plenty of leftovers. Meatballs are wonderful! Granddaughter was delighted with the humungous table-sized ice cream and brownie concoction, which provided plenty of photo ops.

    Our group came for our prom dinner! Our server was AMAZING!! She made special accommodations for our group of 14 that became 16! She was patient with us and helped us all pick dinners! We LOVED our server! She never once acted frustrated with us, and lets face it, we are teenagers, we can try the patience of the calmest people! 5 Stars for GREAT service!!!

    Having no family in the area, we celebrated Easter lunch at Buca di Beppo after an awesome Easter service at Tuacahn. Service was superb, noise level was quiet as there were not yet a lot of diners, the eggplant was delicious, San Remo pasta not something I would order again, but the overall experience was great.

    On a very busy Saturday, after trying another restaurant and being told there would be at least a 90 minute wait for our size group, I checked 'Open Table' to see what was available. Everyone in the group was unfamiliar with this app and skeptical about the reservation. They doubted our large group would realistically be able to walk into that particular restaurant in the next 30 minutes and immediately be seated. When it actually happened, they were more than pleasantly surprised! Kudos to OpenTable!! I just wish more restaurants would participate. When looking on OpenTable to see what was available I could only find 3. And this is in a multiple-city area that probably supplies over a hundred eating establishments!!

    Big servings, family style. Food is not exceptional but good. Atmosphere is fun. Great for general get together, birthdays or just the two of you. Lots of photographs from days gone by grace the walls, both fun and memorable.. Service is very good. The problem with restaurants in Utah is drinks. If you like wine, best to order a bottle, have a beer, or liquored coffee drink.

    We chose Buca di Beppo for Christmas Day late lunch. Holidays were spent earlier with family and this was for just us. We liked the fact that there was a "traditional" lunch to choose - or an Italian meal. The food was superb, the waitress very accommodating, the noise level was moderate (which is one reason we dine at off hours), the ambiance is fun and it was an overall good choice.

    Being Italian, it's hard to impress me with Italian food. This food was good. Not amazing, but good. I would tell other people to eat there. We had a nice Thanksgiving dinner...the best part was I did not have to wash one single dish!!! Waiter was a little annoying. But otherwise...very good.

    I was somewhat disappointed. It was not exactly as described in the website ads, but I probably expected too much. The service was excellent. I probably will never go to any restaurant for a Thanksgiving Dinner again. My daughter and her husband, plus my wife pretty much feel the same way. One last comment from my wife . One would expect hot rolls on thanksgiving, rather than bread.

    We dined at Buca last Thanksgiving and had a wonderful meal of turkey, stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes, etc. We enjoyed so much we dined at Buca again this year for Thanksgiving. Same menu but what a difference in quality. Poor tasteless gravy, too many green beans, terrible stuffing (looked and tasted like croutons), turkey was ok, pitiful canon lies without chocolate for dessert. Will not ho again. I love Buca, one of my favorite restaurants but not for Thanksgiving.

  • Thanksgiving In St. George
    Chaco
    Dined on 11/28/2013
    This was our second Thanksgiving at Buca di Beppo ( St. George ), vacationing here from Seattle. Our first year was wonderful, however, this experience was not quite the same. Being a group of 5, we were first seated at a half-moon table which was at the intersection of the dining room ( reservations were made a month in advance ). We asked to be moved, in which case we were switched to a booth where one of us had to sit at the end. This was ok until all of our food arrived. It was extremely crowded and not the comfort we were used to. Fortunately the meal was very good along with the service.

  • Veteran's Day
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/11/2013
    I heard Buca was giving military members an appreciation meal on Veteran's Day like many other restaurants in the area. These included Texas Road House, Applebees, Golden Corral, Olive Garden. None of the other restaurants require a coupon for a Veteran's meal, they ask for ID or a DD214. Finally the manager approved the Veteran's meal which turned out to be a cheep pasta side dish, while my adult family members had regular meals. It didn't even amount to a kids meal. I had to eat part of my family member's meals. I began asking myself who might be running Buca, certainly not Americans. You lost several generations of customers on that day. Save your appreciation, I'll go elsewhere in the future. Lieutenant Commander USN Retired 26 years.

    The house chianti was excellent as recommended by the server. The bread was served cold. The baked ziti was not baked. Just Pasta with rosa sauce we didn't care for and cheese melted on top. Lacking in flavor and texture. Meatball was very dry. If you like large portions It is the only thing you will like about this restaurant.

    I have come to respect Buca di Beppo for their excellent customer service and wonderful food options. I have enjoyed different dishes on each occasion and have yet to encounter anything mediocre. My family and I have always been promptly seated and well tended. I appreciate the environment and respect that Buca di Beppo creates and conveys to its customers. As a nearby neighbor, I promise that Buca di Beppo will remain on my short list of go-to restaurants for special occasions and family gatherings.

    We were there to celebrate graduation and birthdays! When we arrived, our table was ready for us. That was NICE! We did have to wait longer than I would have liked to get attention from our server to make our order. She brought our drinks and then disappeared for quite awhile. She was very good to bring us more bread with vinegar and oil to dip it in when we asked though. That kept us going while we waited for our food. The food was delicious and the portions were huge. When you say it feeds 2, it actually feeds 4 at least! We had the manicotti, stuffed shells, chicken alfredo (not much chicken in it though) and the baked rigatoni. All of these were good... We will be back. The coupons also help to make it affordable, so keep them coming.

    Been to Bucca in Milwaukee, Salt Lake and now St. George. I didn't know it was a chain when we went the first time! The food was delicious in St. George just as it always has been for us--except for the insalata caprese--because of terrible tomatoes (they looked good, but didn't taste good) which was a disappointment, but the rest of the food was perfect. We love the Apple Gorgonzola salad and the LOVE the Chicken Saltimbocca. The kids love the pizza. It's a thin crust, which we love, but realize that some people don't. If you have a group of 7-10 I recommend requesting the "Pope Room." There's no extra charge for it. It's a little more set away from the rest of the restaurant, which we enjoy (especially with small children).

    We have been to Buca di Beppo several times. I have always enjoyed the food. On 12/31/12 we ordered an appetizer and two entrees. The waitress brought the entrees before the appetizer. She took them back and about 15 minutes later the appetizer arrived. We were only half way done with the appetizer when she brought the entrees back. We were at a small table for two and she crammed everything onto the table. We felt rushed to eat the appetizer to free up some space. To make things worse the food was the same dishes that she brought the first time. The entrees had been sitting under a warmer for about an half hour. They could have at least made some fresh meals. We should have complained while still at the restaurant.
