I use to go to the Buca in DC when I lived there, since moving to MD, it was a little more of a commute so we didn't really go as much. I was so excited to learn they were opening one in waldorf only 10 minutes from my house! The food was amazing as always and our server Amy was great. Everyone was so nice. I have a feeling I'm going to be a regular there ! Lol :)

Food was very good, portions were huge!! The small portion size is more than enough for 2 people. Service was okay, our waiter seemed a bit inexperienced. Forgot a lot of things and would always have to go back a 2nd time to get it. No big deal though. Definitely recommend this place.

Buca is refreshing for Waldorf
Service and atmosphere were top notch and the food was delicious. If this continues, Buca will be the new Waldorf favorite. We had a party of 8, made easy online reservations, celebrated a birthday at dinner and enjoyed every second. A truly family style, welcoming family experience.

Honestly, my party would have
Honestly, my party would have left had it not been for the nice young host who was bubbly and friendly. Our waitress, Amanda, made up for it with her attentiveness.

Love this restaurant but expensive!
Family style restaurant with great food. Just wish prices were lower! New restaurant to Waldorf, and I didn't have a wait. Reservations are excepted!!

Making on-line reservations in advance was a very pleasant surprise: we were immediately seated on arrival on a Friday evening! We were at a table near the kitchen, and were tantalized by the odors emanating from there. The food was excellent, and the waiter and assistant manager who checked on us during and after the meal were professional and enjoyable accents to our evening. The food, the smells, the staff, photos/pictures on the restaurant walls, and overall experience were far better than we expected. We will be back.

Birthday Lunch at Buca
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!

We went to the restaurant to celebrate my daughters graduation. The staff all stopped to congratulate her and spoke with the entire group. They were all smiles and when we mentioned that our area was al little warm the temperature was adjusted. Great time was had by all ten in our party.

NEW FAV FOOD SPOT
BUCA IS NOW THE NEW ITALIAN FAV OF MY FIANCE AND I. 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.

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.

Only one problem
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!

Great food and lots of it
Prosciuto stuff chicken and Baked rigatoni was awesome. Huge portions. Seems pricey at first but not for the amount of food you get. Brought home a whole meal's worth of food.

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.

Great food and Chilled atmosphere
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.

Lots of food
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.

Best Italian food in the local area
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.

Service was outstanding,food was served and taste like home cooking.This was great since this was our first time dining out on Thanksgiving.In all this is an outstanding place to meet and dine.

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.

She paid very close attention to details always made sure we had everything we needed. Food was hot and on-time and she even wrapped everything up when we were done.
Thanks again Ms Forman
