  • "We all had a great time. Because of the variety the teens and adults all found something they loved and even tried new dishes."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Love all the decorations, but anything that has nude or close to for the art should be removed. Kids think its funny and at times its embarrassing. Make the"family style dining" really for the family!"

  • "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."

  • "Attention to us was very nice. Ambiance was cool - loved the rooms & decorations - and everything was VERY clean, including the restrooms (but they were FREEZING!). Our waiter was awesome - very nice and pleasant, and checked on us several times. Pizza was just okay in taste. Garlic bread was very good. Spaghetti and meatballs - the meatballs were good and very large - but I thought the sauce was very bland, and there wasn't much of it. It was kind of watery and didn't really stick to the noodles. Food left something to be desired/and VERY pricey. We had a $10 off coupon/bill was still $60.00 for 2 kids and 2 adults. Not what I call reasonable in pricing."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Your food is beyond delicious! My only problem is that a salad or bread isn't provided with the entree without an additional cost. The prices are a little high not to have those extras provided. Also, I ordered the chicken marsalla (sp.?) which was the BEST! But usually it is served with mashed potatoes not just a platter of meat."

  • "Had a late lunch celebrating our Moms birthday. Dave was our waiter and did a wonderful job. The food is very good and the service is just great. The staff knows just how much food you will need. Very little left over. Great Job"

  • "My husband and I eat Gluten-free. My In-laws are extremely picky. I have a 3 year old. WE ALL LOVED IT! It was so good that my Mother-In-Law tried our our Apple Gorgonzola Salad and she was happy with our options."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Service was excellent for our server was attentive and even went out of his way to accomodate the children in the group. The rigatoni was very spicy. Too spicy for most in the party. The stuffed shells and garlic cheese bread were outstanding and got rave reviews from the party. The salad was delicious also. If the pasta was less spicy Bucca would have had a perfect score. We'll be back."

  • "There was a group of 10 of us for our Mom's birthday. Our server was excellent. She was so personable and had a good knowledge of the menu and took the time to explain how everything worked as some of us were first timers. At the end of the evening we went out to ours cars only to find that my husband had surprised me with a new car!!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "When you walk in, your server asks if you've been here before. Then you get a tour of the restaurant as you walk to your table. The food is good. I like what I ordered, but serving sizes are big but I'm a big eater so the portion size we got I could have eaten myself. The downside was when it came time for the check. It did take a while to get the check."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Thanks Buca for the fabulous food and excellent service. There was something wrong with our salad order and it was made right by taking it off our bill and providing a free dessert. That's service that will make me come back again and again."

  • "I under stand that the resident is going to be busy because it was Valentine's day service was just not as welcoming though they were probably overwhelmed but when I take my girlfriend out I want service at a place like this to be as good as it always is normally is good was awesome as always"

  • "To the people that compare this restaurant to The Olive Garden-- IT IS NOT THE OLIVE GARDEN! Buca is great for family style meals--big portions no matter how you divide up the food. This food IS NOT pre-packaged, heat and serve fare. It takes time to prepare your meal-- relax, have a glass of wine, talk and have fun. Check out all of the decor-- there is plenty to see. The prices are reasonable for the amount of fresh, hot, delicious food that you get. Our favorites include the Chicken Carbonarra, Chicken Parm (the best next to mine of course), the Apple Gorgonzola Salad, and the Fried Mozz.. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy!!"

  • "The place was little busy on a Saturday making our table unavailable for about 15 minutes after the reservation time. Forgivable because they didn't herd us out like cattle when we paid the bill. Our Server was prompt and attentive once we made up our minds! My Dad was very surprised with the menu offerings and loved the Marsala. The Shrimp Florentine was LOADED with shrimp and the stuffed shells disappeared before I could have one! With a party of 10 or more you have to go large and make sure you're hungry for some really good food. I'll be back with my small family. Cool place."

  • "First time to this restaurant. Food was good but extremely pricey. Everything is served family style & is priced individually. If everybody wants something diferrent (as was in our case) it gets real expensive quick. Dinner for 4 was over $200.00. This was for 4 entres,1 appetizer,2 desserts & 3 drinks. Service was ok but not great. We probably will not go back."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "You always get nice sized portions. A small order of something is just enough to split 4 ways. We usually get small salad, small pasta and a small meat dish for four people and it is plenty. The lighting is dim which is great not so sure I would say it's good if you want a romantic place. It's lively but no one elses conversation intrudes on your table. I made our reservation at Open Table for 6:15 on a Saturday night, we got there a bit early about 5:55, the lobby was packed with people waiting for a table. We were seated immediately, very impressed with that! Definitely recommend reservations. When we left there it was still quite busy. I have never had bad service here. The desserts are also enough to split four ways and delicious."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "The food and kitchy ambiance are fine at Buca, BUT, don't think that if you make a reservation you will get a table when you arrive! There was a 20 minute wait for a table after our reservation time. We'll find another place for Italian food in the future."
    Dined on 1/11/2014

  • "We met our family members at Buca for dinner. EVERY member of our family is a member of the Buca email club and we all receive coupons via email for use at the restaurant. We were not allowed to use more then one coupon for our table even though we all had individual checks and our own coupons. In the future we will go to another restaurant where we CAN use the coupons that were sent by the company for use at their restaurant."

  • "My family of four has gone to Buca for Christmas dinner for the last three years but we will def try some place else next year. Our service was horrible almost to the point of rude. Our server only had 1 other table right next to us and they too had bad service. Those poor elderly men got their dinner before their drinks. We didn't get refills, app plates, sweetener for tea, or bread without repeatedly asking."

  • "Had a company dinner together at Buca di Beppo. We had about 15 people. Everyone was enjoying it and was talking about how great the food was and the decoration. We ordered a bunch of stuff from the regular menu (instead of the banquet menu) so everyone could try something different. The portion was absolutely huge and the taste was descent. And the tiramisu just brought this perfect dinner/get together to a perfect end! Would definitely recommend my friends and family to go there!"

  • "The restaurant was extremely noisy! I was getting a terrible headache from all the noise. The kids were alright, but the adults were OUT OF CONTROL! I swear that there should have been a police officer there that night. We couldn't even enjoy our Thanksgiving Dinner because it was so noisy. Buca needs to control that. The whole time that we were there, I wanted to leave so bad! Overall, the food and service was outstanding! Our waitress, Sarah, was very nice. We gave her a huge tip because of that. We will dine here again, but not for awhile."
