    I reserved a room for my daughters graduations recently, and the staff here was excellent! My reservation was confirmed through email and a personal phone call where I was able to make some special requests. The manager whom I spoke with was there to greet me and informed me that he had personally talked with the kitchen to assure that several dishes were kept "gluten free" for one of my daughters. The servers were extremely sweet and were very attentive, even for thirteen diners. This was a truly wonderful experience!

    We were seated right away. It took a while for our server to get to us. The food was brought out in a timely manner but the server failed to refill our drinks, we had to ask several time. He didn't bring us the check and kind of forgot us even those his section wasn't very busy. He spent a lot of time talking to the bartender. The food was excellent thou. We had a chopped antipasto salad, fried mozzarella and a spicy chicken pasta. We had a lot of left overs since there was only two of us in the party. It's a fun restaurant. We didn't receive the tour which was disappointing and non of the hostesses acknowledged us leaving.

    I booked a reservation for two later on in the evening Friday 10/17. For one, we were sat in the bar area... I had date night in mind, I figured being a previous buca customer it'd be a fitting place. Well, it wasn't, constant noise of blenders, workers shouting back and forth at each other, etc. NOT the atmosphere I wanted. Two - The service was terribly slow, (i could understand if the restaurant was very busy, but it wasn't) it took a good 10-15 minutes to greet the waiter and receive our drinks. We ordered a few appetizers - they took forever to come & we finished those far before dinner actually showed up. When dinner did show up it was very bland, not what i'm used to at this place. Don't believe i'll be returning after this visit.

    When we arrived, we were greeted by friendly employees with smiles! I enjoyed the tour of the restaurant! The different rooms decor was stunning! I was surprised to get a tour of the kitchen! No other resteraunt does that! It was clean and again the employees were happy and friendly! When we arrived at our table, it was not ready, which was no big deal to me. However the manager came over to personally apologize and advised our desert would be on the house! Our waiter was phenomenal! He explained the meals, how to order, and recommended fantastic solutions to our large party! He was also friendly and honestly the best server we ever had in any resteraunt we've been to! We look forward to our next visit!

    My daughter-in-law is Italian and enjoyed seeing all the pictures on the wall of old Italian families. Food was pretty good but overpriced for the size except the chicken w/alfredo sauce & peas which was large. Salad had too much dressing on it so ate very little. Server (Diane) was very friendly so left her +20% tip. Overall: too expensive for our family dinners. Also, I had a $10 off coupon that I forgot to use, darn it!

    Went to Buccas for a special event with a large party. Service was dismal. One waitress for 15 people. Had to ask for drink refills, napkins etc... Once main dishes were brought out never checked back until we were ready for checks. Manager came over one time in the beginning. Paying our bills became a nightmare. Some credit cards were charged for other peoples meals. Waitress was EXTREMELY frazzled. Manager never came out. Took us close to 30 minutes to get cleared up. I would not recommend Buccas. Extremely disappointed in the service and management.

We talked to our server about the pizza, as that is something we have never ordered. We will be back soon to try a pizza and have a salad.

    Buca di Beppo was recommended by my husband's co-worker. We have returned several times...with friends! The staff has been very cordial each time, making us feel not only welcome but special. Our favorite appetizer is the Mini Meatballs but that's just the 'warm-up' for the lasagna! Of course, we enjoy the salads with our meal - that would be either the Mixed Green Salad or the Apple Gorgonzola. It is definitely worth the 45-minute drive for the food, the service and the atmosphere.

    Buca is one of my favorites to take friends and family to. The food is served family style, meaning you order for the whole table, not just individuals. The Italian Sodas with cream are outstanding. The Dark Chocolate cake is the best chocolate cake around. Make sure you fill your wallet before you come. It's not exactly cheap.

    Our Family did not have a good experience at the Strongsville Buca Di Beppo. The waiter was not all that friendly, made us feel very uncomfortable. Was not happy or upbeat, never wished me happy mothers day. Never explained the best way to order food and assist us with how to order from the menu. Never got to eat Pasta, spend $64.00 for two entrees, no pasta, no salad, didn't know that bread with oil came to the table. The Servcie was awful. Even tho it was Mother's Day, I didn't need to feel like I was inconveniencing the server. WE all came home feeling very disappointed and a very big let down. I had made reservations and thought it was going to be a very enjoyable dinner. We were seated in the bar area and I wasn't happy in it
