    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 here for my friend's Bachelor party dinner. Portions were huge, great atmosphere, and service was patient and awesome. Our waitress was very kind, funny, and great for helping deciding between meals. Made sure I gave here a good tip. The soon to be groom enjoyed his meal, service, and everything.

    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.

    My wife and I have been to this location several times as it is close to our home. The food is always great. We always get something different, and everything we have ever ordered has been great. 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

    My experiences from much traveling is that, Buca di Beppo's has truly never let me down. Whether in Indianapolis, Naples, Las Vegas, Atlanta; ALL my experiences in service and food were outstanding. Atmosphere and ambiance is warm, friendly, & caring without a doubt. I recently took some local friends to the Strongsville, OH establishment to reflect my appreciation in their mentoring in my life. Needless to say, We had a wonderful time with lasting impressions that will continue bringing us back to Buca's. Thank ALL of you... jker

  • Expensive/Loud/Cramped
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/10/2014
    I had a party of 6 and they expected us to cram into a booth that at any other restaurant would fit 4 people comfortably. After demanding we be moved they finally found another booth that had a open end that they placed a chair for the 6th person. This new table was still small, but way more comfortable then the first booth. The place was loud and it wasn't even fully occupied. Our party was having to rise our voices to talk to each other. On top off all the ambiance issues, the food was average at best and it was expensive compared to other Italian restaurants. I will not be patronizing this restaurant again.

    We chose Buca to help celebrate the kids being home from college for the summer. The grandparents joined us, which was a big reason why we picked Buca. It can always accommodate a large group. The food seemed better than usual as we had the spaghetti with meatballs, penne a la vodka, and chicken parmesan. The flavors were spot on. For dessert we tried the Italian crème cake - yumMMMM! As always, we'll be back!

    We had a party of 6 and ended up ordering various things and splitting everything. Love the family style serving. We had the Caesar and antipasti salads, the baked ziti, the stuffed chicken breast, the Italian supreme pizza, and finished all that off with Tiramisu and chocolate cake. We also got the bruschetta, which was good but boring compared to the rest of the food.

    We didn't tell anyone about the birthday part, but our group of 16, no 12, no 13, no 12 again... were out Saturday night. People kept adding and bailing on us and the staff at Buca took it in stride. We were seated immediately and the family style food was explained in detail. We were never waiting for food, or saying how hungry we were. Brian, our waiter, was excellent, there when we needed him but not 'hanging around' every minute. Great food, great experience, decent price...lots of fun.

    It is difficult for a mere couple to dine here. It is much more fun for groups to order and share these family-style dishes. We and another couple come when we see the 4 for $40 offer--garlic (yes, real garlic) bread, salad, and a pasta dish enough for four people. Despite the large serving sizes, the food is served hot and the sauce is well-balanced (not too tangy). The ravioli with meat sauce was served covered with ground beef! Although the huge desserts are enticing, we had to decline. We left full and satisfied! By the way, the staff is friendly and efficient.
