  • "Went to Bucca as a first timer. Professional, courteous waitstaff. Family style menu was explained in detail. Tried the lasagna, chicken parm , garlic bread and cesear salad. Chicken was cooked well but lacking in flavor. lasagna was tasty but noodles could have been more al dente. Ok wine selection. Good fun local for groups and ok for kids."

  • "The food was great but the service was horrible. We waited for an hour before the server even took our order. He didn't visit the table much. Everytime the hostess sat someone in the section that we were in, we had to ask her to get us things such as refills, bread, OUR SERVER. It was my mother in laws birthday. She has never been to this restaurant and asked that we take her. The experience was HORRIBLE! We will not be returning to this restaurant."

  • "The food was really pretty good. Our young waiter felt like my wife needed more attention than I did. Food servers had no idea where it was supposed to go and rolled their eyes a lot. The manager's sarcasm with staff was embarrassing. An evening out with our daughter and on my wife's birthday was like a reality show and full of tension and drama. Even an impromptu interview with a applicant in front of the bathrooms. I hate to be this blunt, but giving such an inexperienced and unprofessional group such a nice franchise is like lipstick on a pig. I am sure we will be back because of it's potential in a market that needs them but in the meantime, but management has a lot of work to do- and they can start with themselves."

  • "This is a chain restaurant that serves very large portions, meant to be shared. The bar didn't carry Makers Mark or Wild Turkey. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall, the meal was overpriced."

  • "We have been to several Buca restaurants in Florida, Arizona, and Washington, DC. The new Buca is Waldorf, MD seems smaller than the other Buca restaurants, but they do a great job. We had a great server (again). Her name was Amanda. The shrimp and spinach pasta was very good."

  • "Our dining experience was great. We ordered 3 large dishes and a large salad for our group of nine. Two of the dishes were fantastic; however, the third was so spicy no one could eat it. Overall a great experience."

  • "The food and atmospher was nice the waitress was friendly and very good my wife really enjoyed herself out for valentine. Our only complaint was with reservations. We had reservations for 715pm but didn't get seated until 8:00pm but over all the experience was very nice and yes we will be back!!!"

  • "We've visited this location a few times and each time our service is poor. We don't complain to the manager because they are part of the poor service. Having visited several other Bucas I am used to great food and quality service. This location misses the mark."

  • "The food was very good and portions were adequate for the prices. But slow service. We made a reservation for two at 5pm Sat.. We arrived at 4:45 and seated promptly. Our drinks took 5 minutes to arrive. We placed our appetizer order when we got our drinks, and then ordered our entree 10 minutes later . Got our appetizer 10 min after ordering our entree (5:10). Our Salad came out 15 min after appetizer (5:25) and the entree took another 20 min (5:45pm). Our waitress did not ask us for desert, we ordered it when she braught the doggy bags, roughly 20 min after getting our entree (6:05). Desert came out 10 minutes later. 10 minutes more to receive our Bill. And we left at 6:35. That was a very long dining experience for two."

  • "The restaurant is so loud. Birthday singing and clapping time after time. The food was decent, besides making our order only half-size. They did correct it, but forgot about refills and our check. It was just a rough night, and not a place I'm likely to return to."

  • "Went with my wife, mom and brother. Had the chopped salad, calamari, meatball appetizer, ham stuffed chicken, veal Marsala , and a bowl of spaghetti. You can order "small" or "large" portions. We ordered the small sizes and that was more than enough for us, plus we took home some food. Enjoyed everything. The veal Marsala was a little on the sweet side but good. With the small bowl of tomato sauce that accompanied the calimari they put in too many red pepper flakes. Other than that all good. Staff was well trained and very friendly. Great friends and family dinner place!"

  • "We celebrated my birthday at Buca. The reservations were made online and very easy to schedule. The manager called about two hours before and confirmed and answered the questions I had put in my reservation. He also told us that he may have to site us at adjoining tables so we wouldn't be surprised when we arrived. Very thoughtful. The food was good. We did have to send the lasagna back to be heated more. The calamari is the best I've ever had. The waiter and waitress we had assigned to us were the best. Friendly, funny and professional. We had 15 in our party and they were on top of everything. Thank you for making my birthday dinner a special time."

  • "You have a great manager in Leonard Blair however the STAFF NEEDS ALOT OF WORK. The bartender during happy hour was so unprofessional and the bus attendant. The tall blonde male manager needs to shadow Leonard it appears that he does not like to handle guest service issue he was asked to come back to our table multiple times however never did after walking pass our table three times. The server which was great by the way even stated she informed him but was not sure why he was coming to the table. After waiting at least 30 minutes one of the guest from our table went to ask for another manager which was Leonard. At 935pm we ask for a glass of tea and the bus person said there was none left because they were about to close at 10pm. Really!"

  • "Buca is one of my favorite restaurants. Visit Connecticut Ave location a lot. Second visit to Waldorf. Our server was "fair," the food did not come out of the kitchen at a good pace; veal & side of spaghetti was lukewarm. Unlikely to visit this location again."

  • "The mozzarella caprese was fresh and delicious. I had the Chao! Chianti wine and it was also very good. The staff is all quite new but with a little more experience I think they will improve on their customer service skills."

  • "The first visit was awesome, from the wait staff to the food, to the table, etc. This time I can't say the same. The waitress was horrible...asked 3xs for bread, 2 glasses of wine took over 1/2 hour with 2 reminders and there was a general lack of oversight. The food was awesome. Made a reservation a week before for 5 (one a highchair), and led to a table where either the baby or one of the parents had to sit out in the aisle between two tables...extremely uncomfortable. Felt like sardines, couldn't get in or out very well. Had to ask that the extra menus and place settings be removed. One good experience, and one bad...maybe the third time will be a charm."

  • "The picture was very misleading of the meal that was served. Even tho we were very happy with the amount and quality. We had to kept asking about which items, did or didn't come with the meal. Since everyone had access to the picture the same questions were asked more than once.Our server Patrick, did a good job explaining and showing us lots of attention."

  • "Great food, friendly staff, sometimes a little longer wait and only because the portions being made are larger! May look expensive but I was able to get 2 more meals from the leftovers."

  • "The first time you come to the restaurant you are surprised by the family style dining. It is hard to judge whether you want the small or large portion. This restaurant is better suited for groups of four or more due to the family style dining. The cost of the meal is what I would call above average. The service was fantastic and the server saw to our every need. The deserts are large and can be shared."

  • "I fell in love with this place when we were in Universal Studios and was hoping to find one the DC area and I was lucky enough to find one that just opened in Waldorf. I took my wife there for her birthday and it was great, the birthday song was funny and all the employees joined in. The food is delicious, the portion is generous and the atmosphere is just soothing. I felt I was at a restaurant in Italy with English speaking waiters :-) But overall this is a place was GREAT and hope you get to try it. Thank you for a great Birthday experience."

  • "Bucca has been a family favorite for several years. We usually go to the Connecticut Ave location & thought we 'd try the new Waldorf location. Went for Sunday lunch. Food was great. Servers were great too -- friendly, efficient everyone was obviously well trained and committed to make the dining experience special. I'll have to get use to a mall location. It interferes with the overall "ambiance" but parking is plentiful & free."

  • "This restaurant will be fantastic for large group dinners that pre-order the meal. The lack of the option to order only one serving of the dishes offered brought our group of 9 women distress at having to have at least 2 agree to an order. 4 of us went with pizza simply because it was the easiest way to order. Lunch there is different - you can order single servings of most meals. The mixed green salad is excellent and highly recommended!"

  • "I hated it. It was extremely loud, the tables were super close (it was like we were on the laps of other diners), and we sat in a dark corner. We were looking forward to the family style dining however the portions we received were small and I had to order double. The small family style portions are supposed to feed two or more however the small lasagna was enough for one person and I had to order two $19 dishes. The rest of us shared a pizza which was pretty good. My mom asked for another drink and the warier came back to stress there are no free refills on alcohol. Ummm duh! That's why she asked for another one. Not a refill.I won't be back. I prefer Maggiano's."

  • "Walking into Buca Di Beppo is an experience. The walls are covered with different photos that kept us laughing throughout dinner. The food is family style so a group of five of us we shared a appitizter, large salad, and 3 small meals. After we where all full we where able to all make a small container to take home."

WE HAVE BEEN TO THE LOCATION IN DC, BUT NOW THAT THE WALDORF LOCATION IS OPEN, WE DON'T HAVE TO TRAVEL FAR AND THROUGH CRAZY TRAFFIC TO ENJOY A GREAT MEAL. GREAT FOR A DATE NIGHT OR IF YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE COOKING. WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND FOR A LARGE FAMILY MEAL."

  • "The staff took me there for my birthday lunch. It was the first time any of us had visited this location. (I've eaten at the one in Indianapolis in years past). Everyone from the front door to the last minute was tremendously nice and helpful. Chef "Jeffrey" visited our table several times and made us all feel welcomed. I was totally surprised when the Buca bunch came into our room with a candelabra, sang happy birthday to me, and gave me a card they had all signed. It was fun, and truly special. I have already shown others the pictures we took and told them about the fun we had. Thanks, Buca Waldorf!"
