Diner Reviews
  • "Buca di Beppo's food quality has definitely gone down; it used to be good but not anymore. The salad had too much dressing, was soggy, and was not fresh. We were also disappointed with the pepperoni pizza because it had very little cheese on it."

  • "This was a special date outing for my wife and I. If we hadn't had a $20 off coupon, we never would have considered it. With the coupon, it was a fairly good deal. The food is fantastic."

  • "Service was good, however the kitchen ran out of items to make one of the dishes we ordered. Had to change order twice. Server was very apologetic and recovered well. Food tasted good and overall, we ended up enjoying ourselves. Still would recommend."

  • "In for a graduation/birthday family celebration, we had a couple of great grandparents along who don't go out much, our waitress was great! Extremely patient with a great attitude, the food was good but she made the meal. Thanks!"

  • "I Was in town visiting family and decided to treat them to Dinner. We ordered the sangria which we love but at this location they let the drink sit out and the ice melted. So then we ordered normal drinks. You would think after the sangria being so poor they would comp it. Nope! So it was very watery, we told our server and she said that is how they make it its premade. Didn't say sorry. I even asked if she could not let it sit, she says it's premade. Then when we would ask for plates it was like a burden to her. Also when we would ask for certain things to be removed from dishes, due to dietary restrictions, she said everything was premade. I'll like do you guys make anything fresh here. This experience like a bar rescue ep"

  • "Buca was the perfect fit for our graduation celebration. Making a reservation for a large party of 14 was so easy with Open Table. I also easily changed the number of guests the day before. The service was tremendous with two servers helping out. The food was relatively quick with such a large party. We ordered 5 of the large size entrees which was more than enough with two salads and two servings of bread. The beverages were refilled quickly. It can be a noisy space with lots of groups, but it didn't affect our experience. They also sang to our graduates for a nice final touch."

  • "We went there after my college graduation. Our reservation was at 1:15. I personally was disappointed because we were seated in the bar. Granted, there was an elderly person with us but we also had 2 young children. A different room would have been a little better. The service was very good. However, my lasagna looked like it was left over from the night before and microwaved (the edges were dark). One person in our party ordered baked manicotti and it looked like it was the same deal. We had to wait a while for our food and were never brought refills on bread. It was 1:15 in the afternoon and were not extremely busy. There were 4 - 5 other parties from graduation but that was it. The food was ok at best."

  • "Great food, great service, fun atmosphere. A family tradition of ours. Bucca for Mother's Day."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We went to Buca to celebrate Mother's Day. Most of the food we ordered was good (lasagna, mozz garlic bread, and chicken marsala), but our service was subpar. We waited 10 minutes before our waitress greeted us. After that, she was OK until the food came out. My in-laws ordered mashed potatoes to go with their chicken marsala, and they didn't come out with the food. 5 minutes later, the waitress came to check on us and realized they still hadn't come out. She "went to check", and we waited at least 5 more minutes before they appeared. The rest of us were done eating. There was no offer of an apology, let alone an offer to remove the potatoes from the bill. It was my in-laws' first time at Buca, and they won't be back. Very disappointing."

  • "$75 for watery noodles and very little sauce as well as dry chicken for our second dish. Manager apologized but didn't fix the issue. "

  • "I thought the pizza so over priced but ordered it for my grandchildren who are eight and eleven because they wanted pizza. The pizza with pepperoni was so greasy they could hardly eat it. Maybe the cheese pizza would be all right. We ordered the large. My son in law thought the pepperoni too spicy. The egg plant was wonderful. The penne in marinara sauce was tasteless. The Caesar salad no better than Dole kit. My granddaughter told her sister it is just like the one we buy at Kroger! So sad. We are retired and thought this would be a wonderful treat for our family. We were so disappointed. I did not say anything in front of my children but was so disappointed this time at Buca."

  • "We were seated at a table right next to a shelf with all of the plates and not only was it extremely loud but someone was over there at least every 3 minutes to put plates there or pick plates up which was so noisy and distracting. My husband took me here for Mother's day and we couldn't even have a nice conversation because of that. We love the restaurant but was not very happy and rushed out of there because of that issue."

  • "We had a wonderful meal and great time at Worthington Buca. What delicious servings - we had antipasti salad, appetizer platter, lemon chicken, lasagne, linguini w clam sauce, and dessert platter - it's a wow. Very comfortable and enjoyable for our table of 10. "

  • "Buca di Beppo is a great choice for group functions, but not when high schools are having their proms. Our reservation was for 6:00 pm, but we were not seated until 6:30 or so because Buca overbooked their tables. I will say, however, once we got our table, we had a great night with good food. Thank you for not rushing us from our table, since it took us so long to escape the crowded lobby to get it."

  • "We did enjoy the food, but for 2 people the servings were much too much. We would have preferred to have smaller than feeds 2 or more portions available on the menu. Only good for larger groups. "

  • "After looking at the menu online I wasn't really sure what to expect, but was very pleasantly surprised! The food and service were great and the atmosphere inviting and loads of fun. I don't see this as a dinner for 2 kind of place but I find myself trying to think of reasons to get another group together so I can come back soon!"

  • "First time going out to eat for Easter and it was horrible. The food was awful. No taste what so ever!. Will not recommend. Very disappointed. Ordered garlic bread and didn't get it till we were almost done with dinner."

  • "I made the reservation because I know this place caters to large groups and bigger celebrations. We had no problems getting in and out. They accommodated our short hour lunch request with ease and our server even brought out to-go containers and bags to get us on our way quickly. Great experience as always and the food is always fabulous. Will definitely go here again."

  • "Love this place when eating with 6 or more. Great food, great service. Recommend requesting a table not in the bar area though. It's noisy not because of people but because of dishes being stacked and washed, and the room is just not a nice setting. Menu can be challenging if your group is a little indecisive."

  • "I took my adult daughter to Bucca's for her birthday dinner. I only told the waitress after she asked if we were celebrating a special occassion. I didn't order a cake, but they brought candles to the table after we finished eating and did a group sing along. The attention of our waitress was outstanding and the food excellent."

  • "So much food, leftovers galore. You won't go away hungry and if you do it's your own fault. Shared apple gorgonzola salad, prosciutto stuffed chicken and fettuccini with my husband. We were able to experience all three pasta sauces on one plate (pesto, marinara & alfredo). I'll just say YUM!!! Had the leftovers the next day for lunch and shared those with a co-worker. Still good the next day."

  • "Went with my husband and in-laws and had a great time. Food was excellent as usual. Service was adverage. Would be back again. The only down side it that even with a reservation, you end up sitting for an extended amount of time waiting for a table. The gal in the front seems bored out of her mind and had no clue. This has happened almost every time I have gone there. Would likely go more often if this was not the case. Seem very dissorganized."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Fantastic restaurant that was great for our large group. We always love coming to Buca, not only for the food and atmosphere, but because they don't hesitate to take large groups. Plus they don't automatically add a top to large groups. And honestly I tip more if the restaurant doesn't automatically add the tip to the bill for large groups."
