Diner Reviews
  • "Our group all selected salads for lunch. Our server Cindy did an excellent job making salad suggestions, accommodating special requests, changing orders after the selection had been sent to the kitchen and helping us split the bill. Cindy had a great bubbly personality and a great smile. She made our visit memorable. "

  • "I am new to USA (came from Europe) and tried several Italian restaurants in Lake County. Buca di Peppo is by far the best one. The food tastes really good. The ambiance is typical from southern Italy... it is a typical 'cantina italiana'."

  • "We often choose to dine at Buca. Whether we are celebrating a birthday or just getting together with friends our first thought is of Buca. The food is always delicious and the staff is so warm and welcoming. "

  • "We needed a local restaurant to entertain out of town guests. One guest prefers no meat meals. There was a good variety of entrees to satisfy everyone's preferences. The service was just right, not too attentive but enough to be certain that our needs were met. The prices are a bit high, even if you take some home for the next day."

  • "This trip to Bucco was my wife and I's first time with just the two of us. While we did not recognize it on our other visits, everything about Bucco is built for the group. Large seating areas, massive portions even the oversized parking lot. That said, we had quite a nice meal just the two of us ordering for one--did I mention they have massive portions?! Definitely a return visit is in store....with my old high school football team."

  • "How refreshing to dine at a restaurant that is so accommodating. From changing the time of our reservation at the last minute, to allowing us to visit for a while when we were through eating. The wait staff smiled while answering our questions. Because we were busy talking rather then eating, we were asked if we would like our entrée taken back to the kitchen to keep it warm while we finished our salad. The food was delicious. Our entire dining experience was enjoyable and relaxing."

  • "We made a reservation on-line. We arrived at the time of the reservation & there was no waiting. We were seated immediately. Our server came to our table right away with our menu. She gave us a couple of minutes to look it over & then came back & took our order. She brought us our drinks immediately & the appetizer soon after that. Our dinner was served promptly after we finished our appetizer. The fettuccine alfredo & chicken parmigiana were delicious! We chose the celebration cake for our dessert. Our server was very attentive to our every need from start to finish. We order the small portions & not only was it enough to feed us both, we had enough left over to bring home for a second meal. A bit pricey for a pasta place though!"

  • "Buca is one of my favorite places to go for lunch, but the food was a little off when we went to Buca this time. The eggplant parmesan was overcooked & dry - normally it's quite moist & tasty. Both the red clams & white clams entrees had no flavor at all; both dishes were mostly spaghetti, very few clams. We will NOT be ordering those again. Our server was very attentive, but she was VERY loud, so loud she'd be categorized as screaming - even tho we were the only people in the dining room section! She even asked if she could borrow the hand cream I was using when she approached us! Nice lady, but she needs to turn it down several notches!"

  • "Buca is wonder Italian restaurant with good food and a great ambience with great service. The food is served in great portions enough for a big family or a huge appetite."

  • "For our first ever visit to Buca di Beppo, we opted for Sunday lunch with the family. Family style service with MORE than adequate portions (just as much leftover to take home as our family of four was able to eat at the restaurant) was just what il medico ordered. Abbondanza! Friendly, unobtrusive service set just the right tone. Decor and music were delightful, with Sinatra music/pictures being the most notable omission. Otherwise, it was just about the perfect family meal!"

  • "Well the food was decent and the service was fair considering the restaurant was full, I do not see myself returning to the restaurant. When the waitress came to the table she went over drinks and food. When some from our party went to order the drinks stated they did not have any. Majority of the dishes brought to our table were dirty. Including stuff floating in our drinks. One in out party even found a hair in her pasta. Can't say it was a good experience."

  • "We were there for for my grandsons birthday lunch. We were 7 people our bill was $180.00. I feel when they came to sing happy birthday they could have provided a little dessert with a candle. Instead he got a candlelabra with 5 candles and no dessert. Very disappointed."

    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Food good, the new veggie lasagna is light and good, just need to make sure you ask for the marinara sauce not the alfredo sauce it comes with. Some waiters ask which one you like, but should be on the menu with the 2 sauce options. Also got the Salmon with butter sauce ( asked it to be brought on the side), and was very tasty, with a lot of chopped tomatoes on top."

  • "Our server, Lee, was THE BEST! (uh oh, I think that was her name!) She was friendly, helpful and attentive, without being pesty. Normally we don't like noisy places, but in this case, we thought it was "festive," and enjoyed singing Happy Birthday to other diners when the waiters brought out the cake. Food was all delicious, too. We rarely go to Buca di Beppo, but when we do, we enjoy it."

  • "Jorge was a great server! Me and my siblings went there to eat and visit. Jorge was very attentive but gave us our space. The food was good and we appreciated that they told us about the portions being meant to share. My only complaint would be the restaurant interior was very worn."

  • "OK - fine. Buca Di Beppo is not the most authentic or highest-class Italian restaurant you can find, but for an enjoyable, well-priced family-style dining experience, the restaurant delivers consistent results and good service."

  • "If you love to share, this family style dining experience is the place to go, All the items ordered were tasty and served at the right temperature. There was plenty to eat and even some to take home to enjoy again. The service was excellent and we were given plenty of time to enjoy our meal and our group discussions."

  • "We came in at 9:30 on Saturday Night with a big group of nine people. We were celebrating two things, a birthday and an anniversary. Dewy was our waiter. Not only was he great with service and food, but he engaged in conversation and was very polite and patient. He gave us a card and candles for each occasion. He was helpful in guessing how much food would be enough. I was also very impressed on his way of serving wine. I love going to Buca. This experience was even more amazing."

  • "My husband and I dined at Buca for Valentine's day, and it was a lovely evening. The food is savory, particularly the Chicken Limone and the Penne San Remo. Both dishes were absolutely outstanding. Very romantic setting as well."

  • "Had a great time.Food was great & huge portions. Was nervous at first waiting room was packed but having Reservations we got right in only about a 10 min Wait. The only issue we had was that our poor waitress Kept getting tables sat 3 and 4 at a time so she was very busy and Overwhelmed."

  • "We went early Sunday afternoon-3 PM & were sat in a room with a group celebrating a family birthday. They had ~30 people in their party. The noise was horrendous. It was difficult to have a conversation amongst ourselves. In addition, the parents allowed their children to run around & yell loudly near our table. It was so loud that other patrons asked to be moved rather than sit in this section of Buca. When I asked the manager why we were put in such a noisy section, she said there were celebrations throughout the restaurant & it couldn't be avoided. (This also explains why our service was almost non-existent!) Diners should not have to sit in the same restaurant section as large parties. I enjoy Buca, but not on this day!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Food was good as always but the restaurant was ill prepared for the valentines day rush. Reservations were being seated late and the host had little control over the available seating. From there the waitress had too many tables and was unfamiliar with the seating section. Considering it's one of the busier days for a restaurant they did little to prepare."

  • "Long story short, they were not prepared for the Valentines Day rush. Made reservations for 8pm and walked into a crowded lobby full of waiting customers who also made reservations. Took 30 minutes to get seated, while being seated I saw SEVERAL open tables. Not sure why they had customers waiting? But overall the food is delicious and you get a lot of it. Two small entree's is more than enough for a couple and you will most likely bring some home. I would say expect to spend about $50-$60 for two people without drinks."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We have catered from Buca in the past. The food is good. Not excellent, but standard Italian fare. However, dining in with my husband, 5 and 9 year old was a let down. We were advised that a small dish served 2 adults. So we ordered 2 small dishes, and a salad for the family. No one was full and the prices were ridiculous. $13 for cheesey bread? I can order a great pizza for less, and we all know that cheesey bread is yesterday's leftover table bread. Not even a freshly made item. Won't be going back to dine in."

  • "We have found that Buca di Beppo is a great place for family get togethers. Everyone can be included. Noise level is high so little children fit right in without having to worry about them bothering others. Our waiter was very helpful with ordering amounts and dishes as it is basically family style eating. He was friendly and accommodating. Food came out readily, hot and tasty. Their cheesy garlic bread is a must. Veal was delicious as was the meatballs and spaghetti. The chicken with pasta in an alfredo sause was just ok. Dessert was great!"
