    Convenient place to meet family for dinner when coming into town for football game. Easy to make a reservation on Open Table. Nice to eat on the "porch" that opens into the mall. Feels like you are outside and not so noisy. Service was great and food was ok. The apple gorgonzola salad was delicious and so was the Chicken Glorioso. The Macaroni Rosa was huge for a small. Too much penne pasta and not enough of the other ingredients. And the taste was a little flat or really no taste.

    Came to buca with my family for my graduation lunch. Took more than 10 minutes for the waitress to show up. She never refilled our drinks, asked us how everything was, or checked on us. The food was delicious but the service was lacking. Also wish they would've done something special as I was celebrating a special occasion and we spent over $300 at the table.

    Went to this restaurant for a birthday with a party of 14. The staff was excellent and very helpful. The food was great. Should have ordered the regular dishes. Would have been plenty. The large dishes were a lot of food. The staff sang happy birthday and all signed a birthday card. Very family friendly. Will definately be going back.

    I took my husband here for a surprise Father's day dinner. He had never been before and since it is fairly new to our area, I thought it would be nice for something different. We liked the family style meals since we love to share. Everything we got was great, food wise, but the carafe of sangria was a bit pricey at $22. If I had know that it was that much, I wouldn't have ordered it. I should have asked first! The service was great and the restaurant was quiet. No loud music, thankfully. Overall, a good experience.

    The food is decent, but they need to reduce the size of their dishes. Way too much food is served. They need to give their food more flavor as well. The veal was tough and had to be sent back. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that the server didn't remove it from our check. Even the service was lacking attention, since there was very few people there during our service. We had an accidental spill at our table which got me & my husband wet, but took the waiter several minutes to bring a cloth to help us. The waiter was waiting to bring back drinks for a neighboring table before helping us. Very disappointing. We won't be returning to that restaurant ever again.

    Excellent service, food and value. The dessert, ice cream/brownie bowl, was an absolute hoot. We were a group of 4, ordered a small salad and main course along with the dessert, all of us went away full and content. Highly recommend.

    I took my family here to celebrate my graduation this Friday. I was a bit weary at first because it is in the mall, but those quickly went away as we sat down and began to eat. The food was delicious and you get a ton, but what really stood out to me was the service. They were very attentive, and quickly accommodated us when we found out that more people than I had made the reservation for would be joining our party. They even gave me a card to congratulate me on graduation that they had all the employees sign! It's the little things like that that show that they really care about there customers. Will definitely be back to Buca di Beppo!

    Our family chose to gather together at Buca for Easter dinner rather than spend the day cooking in the kitchen, and the restaurant did not disappoint. The food was delicious, the portions more than generous, and the service was warm, friendly, and inviting. We love the atmosphere and the opportunity to sit "outside" and watch the rest of the mall traffic walk by. It was so nice to share a meal together without having to work all day to prepare it. We will definitely be back.

    This is a traditional Italian family style restaurant. Everything is served on platters and meant to be shared, even the small platters. Our waitress told us the small size was for 2 and over but the small Ziti platter fed 3 men with leftovers. Their veal marsala and chicken saltimboca were very good.

    The host was not welcoming at all. He was distracted by something and didn't acknowledge or help us for a few minutes upon arriving. Once we were seated finally, it was a while before a waitress came. She said that no one told her that she had people in her section. She did promptly take our food and drink order and answered our questions. The food was good, but the service was just ok.

    This was my first visit to Buca di Beppo, made on a mid-week evening. They serve family style so, for dinner at least, it helps to have more in your party (and people that you are comfortable making group food decisions with) so you can try a larger selection of their generously-sized items. Hightlights included the apple-nut-gorgonzola salad but all the main course dishes we ordered were good. The waitstaff was friendly and knowledgable. Our party of eight (none with bird-like appetites) had an appetizer, a large salad, two large and one small entrees, and had quite a bit boxed up for take-home.

    First time to Buca. My wife kept talking about going so we went for Valentines Day. We were seated right away. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable. We ordered appetizer, salad, and entrée portions for two. Food was delicious and we were treated to a good size portion. Prices were very reasonable for the amount of food. We definitely enjoyed our evening and will go back.

    My boyfriend and I came to this restaurant as first time diners, but aware of the style of the restaurant. We were hoping to celebrate New Year's Eve. We had received a gift card from a friend and truthfully, had heard good things; we were in the mood for some delicious Italian food. Our first questions revolved around how best to order for 2 in a restaurant set up to serve extremely large portions. Our waitress was not knowledgeable about the food, options for us, and answered in one-word answers in regards to how we should order ending with a shoulder shrug and "Can't you both just decide on the same thing?" Food was awful, bill was 70.00, service was terrible, and my word limit has now been cut off in this review. We won't be returning.

    The food was amazing! The service however was not so great. I don't know if our waitress was having an off night or something, but we didn't even get the bread every other table was being given upon arrival... We had to ask for it AFTER we had received our appetizer. They didn't have mini meatballs, which is the appetizer we ordered, so they gave us 1 big meatball - for free. The food came and the portions were quite large, as stated in the menu. Each dish is meant to be shared, so the small feeds 2-3 and the large feeds 4+. Great place to go w/a group so you can try multiple items. We pretty much had 2 waitresses service us, whenever they each got the time, as so it seemed. Not sure what the problem was. We were never rude or anything.
