  • "Bucca di Beppo is one of my favorites and has been for a few years now. Glad they opened an additional location. Definitely kid friendly; 2 fussy kids there during my recent visit. This new location has a large space and attached to mall, so you can walk off your food afterwards. Great service and attention."

  • "I have referred this restaurant to my friends and family. Everything was great the sitting was not so good. My family shared the small room with another family and we had to continuously ask them to excuse use so that we could go to the bathroom or leave. We were disturbing them well they tried to enjoy their food."

  • "We would not recommend this restaurant. They claim to be family style. There were 10 of us and we had to wait for everything. And the restaurant was empty. When the food did come out only half were served. The balance of our group had to wait. We had to ask numerous times for drink refills, alcoholic drinks (which were not good), crushed red pepper, etc. What a missed opportunity to impress a group of people who could then tell 10 more people each of a good experience!"

  • "What a great experience! I made reservations for a special occasion and received great service even before I had reached the dY of the reservation. The restaurant had called to double check my reservation and to find out what the special occasion was. When we reached the restaurant we were given impeccable service! Everyone was so nice. We had ordered a bruschetta and unfortunately they were out but the manager had treated us to mozzarella instead, no charge! I have worked in food services before and can be really picky about customer service but this place was more than satisfactory. I highly recommend everyone coming for an amazing experience and a delicious meal!!"

  • "We were looking for a family-friendly place to have dinner after a long afternoon activity and I found Buca de Beppo on Open Table. The hostess was excellent, personable, engaging with the two children in our party and genuinely welcoming to us as first time diners. Food was served family style and the portions were generous---we even had leftovers. The food was very good. Our server wasn't quite as attentive as the hostess had been but all in all, it was a pleasant family dining experience."

  • "Very disappointed overall. You were out of veal and you didn't have the wine we asked for. Our waitress also was the bartender, so she was not always available."

  • "Our dining out that evening was wonderful as usual (This was our 3rd. time there) We enjoyed to food, service and the atmosphere. It became a little noisy later after a family of (2) adults and (5) children were seated next to us. Overall it was a good dining experience. Thanks"

  • "I took the family there to celebrate a birthday. There was a total of seven of us. There was plenty of food and it was excellent. The staff was courteous and attentive. We ordered 3 big dishes so took a little while to get to the table. The food was hot and delicious. The dessert was a bonus."

  • "The setting is interesting. When we first walked in there were so many vintage pictures. We ate very late so the wait wasn't bad at all. Our waitress was very nice and accomodating. The food is rather pricey but it's family style dining so the portions are huge. I ate at the restaurant 3 days ago and STILL have leftovers. The restaurant was closing and I was trying to hurry as to not hold them up but no one tried to rush us. It was nice."

  • "We went to the Waldorf restaurant for an early Mothers Day dinner. We loved it! The food was fabulous as was the service. Patrick was very attentive to our needs the whole time we were there and Kira came over as well even though we weren't her table. We got to take plenty of food home to enjoy the next day. I saw a review that said the small lasagna wasn't enough and they had to order another one....???? Ours was huge! Four of us ate some of it and 3 of us ate the leftovers the next day! We will definitely come back again!"

  • "My sausage and peppers was so over cooked that I could not even cut them. I did not give it back because the waitress was so nice. My Alfredo was dry. I won't come again."

  • "Ten of us enjoyed lovely lunch and the food was delicious. Two dinners were slow in arriving to the table and the waitress announced (before we complained about the slow service) that they were "comping" those two meals. I still wish that smaller portions were available. One does not always want to share a meal, nor take half of it home. My other wish is for a diet-friendly choice or two. --Vivian"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
