I'll be back!!!
One of the better Italian restaurants in town. Not too pricey and portions were plentiful. Food was enjoyable. Service was excellent with frequent inquiries about everything. It is recommended that you make reservations, if possible, as we were seated immediately. If not, you may have a wait as the place is always crowded. We have been here several times and each visit was enjoyable.

We enjoyed lunch on Easter Day. Helped us with seating for Mom with walker.

We enjoy this restaurant very much. The food is good and plentiful. We have never had poor service. The food is served family style and we always have leftovers. It is a little pricey, even for the "small" portions. Example: garlic bread with the entree is $6.99 which would be better for a larger party. If you are a spaghetti and meatballs fan, try the giant meatballs. They are delicious.

"Famous" Kitchen Table
We received the "famous kitchen table" seating. Great fun and friendly staff. A little too loud for our conversation, but a great "do it once" experience. This wasn't our first visit and definitely going to return, we'll just specify dining room seating. :) Food was absolutely amazing as always!

We went early, so it was not
We went early, so it was not very crowded. Service was good. I think it works best with more people due to the family style dining. There were 3 of us. Food was good, although we prefer more meat and less ricotta in the lasagna.

This was our first time eating
This was our first time eating here and it was a wonderful experience with excellent service and good dinner selections. Portions are more than generous. Definitely will dine here again.

The atmosphere was terrific and the food was outstanding! The staff especially was very helpful and knowledgeable about ordering a group meal.

The food was great
It was our first time here and I must say that both me and my girlfriend were impressed. We reserved a table ahead of time so that was good. The waiter explained the menu pretty well & recommended different items to us. The best part of the experience was the food! I have to admit that this was the best pasta & salad I've ever had! Definitely coming back soon!

Service was very good, server was pleasant, and arrived when we needed something but was not pushy. Food was high quality Italian, sauce was like homemade, menu varied and decorations were unique but part of the whole experience. Definitely recommend.

Go to Italian
Buca di Beppo is the only place in my opinion to go for GREAT Italian food. The portions are huge, we always end up taking half of our food home, and we're big eaters. The decor is wonderful, I see something different everytime I go. The prices are a bit high so if your on a budget think about going to their lunch offering which are more wallet friendly. Otherwise order some wine, ask for their garlic bread basket to make sure you get every last drop of the sauce off your plate and expect to be stuffed as you walk out the door.

Buca is becoming one of our
Buca is becoming one of our favorites. Food is delicious. Service is very good. Hannah was our waitress and did a great job. I'm sure we will be back.

Happy birthday celebration
It was my 50th birthday party
we had a wonderful time.......food was really great....good service.....
I will come back again and again...
thank you Buca di Beppo for a great dining experience...and a great evening with family for my birthday.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
Experience for yourself!
Love this place! It's out of my area but have never had a less than exceptional experience! Love me some Buca (&i'm not easy to please)!
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
coupons and small quantities
I've been to Bucca a lot and even when I was seated right next to the busing station, we still had a waitress and a busboy attending to us and restocking our bread basket every time we lifted our last piece of bread. It's hard not to go when they have such good coupons too. As a poor college student, these coupons make it easier to dine at Bucca. However, since Bucca is a family style restaurant, you have to be careful about how many items you order. I went with my two roommates and ordered a large pasta and this white wine cocktail thing, bringing our total to nearly $60. As tasty as the white wine cocktail thing was, it was mostly ice and not worth the $22. As long as you have coupons and order in small quantities, you'll be good
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food is fabulous!
I'm planning to go again! They have alot of great choices! The chicken stuffed with prosciutto was tender. My family especially enjoyed the linguini with mussels and shrimp. The sauce had a little "kick".
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food listing and taste!
Great food listing and taste! Although service was kinda ok, the total experience well worth the trip. This resteraunt is truely a gem when it come to the variety of Italian cuisine.

We love going to Buca. We try to get to Buca's at least once a month. The food is incredible and the staff is awesome.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bucca always has good food although this time around it was a little dry.
While the service was good, they packed everyone into one area leaving seating cramped and the servers bending and reaching and bumping into my chair.
They sat people at the tables around the perimeter and a large group in the middle. Why they didn't use the other side is beyond me. I have eaten at Olive Garden where they put people everywhere and there is always way more room.
I have worked in restaurants, I know how staff sections work but I saw many servers running around and some just standing stacking plates and chatting.
Bottom line, this wasn't the most pleasant experience at Bucca. I am sure we will go again but maybe not for date night.

For the first time in a long
For the first time in a long time the wait staff was attentive AND the restaurant had the food that we wanted (usually they are out of a certain dish)
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for large groups
We had a group of 12 for a birthday celebration. The food was awesome and served family-style. Everyone loved the chicken parmigiana and the 1893 salad was delicious. The kids enjoyed the ravioli with meat sauce.
Also the Colossal Brownie Sundae was enough dessert for 5 or more people! We will definately come back!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great time the waiter was good food excellent large portions even the small size was good for two people
Wine was great had a really nice dinner
8/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
Alot of food for a low price.
Went in for a birthday dinner, wait was minimal since I had made a reservation. You get a tour of the kitchen before being seated which the kids enjoyed doing. Food was plentiful and service was a little infrequent. All in all was a good place to take the family for dinner.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good birthday dinner
Staff and food were wonderful. My only disappointment was in the pricing of the alcohol. My drink alone was going to be $13 dollars with the fancy cup to take home or 9.99 without the cup. So rather than having my birthday drink there, I chose to go to the local liqueur store to get something that my whole family could enjoy for less than the cost of one drink for myself. Very disappointed.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lots of people told us about
Lots of people told us about this restaurant, and when we dined it was awesome. Love the atmosphere and service.

The best dining experience, EVER.
Our family went to the restaurant for my daughter's birthday. She wants to be come a chef. The restaurant has a single table that is actually in the kitchen. The wait staff and KITCHEN staff could not have been nicer. The head chef took the time out to check in on our table to make sure we were having the best dining experience. The food was excellent and it was a special experience to see the care that the kitchen staff puts into preparing and the serving the food. I cannot recommend highly enough the quality of the food and the dining experience there. This is where we will go for our special family dining events from now on.

Birthday Bash at the Kitchen Table
I made the reservation on-line for the Kitchen Table as it was where my brother, my husband, and I had sat before and it was so much fun. My opinion is that is the best seat in the restaurant. We were able to see the kitchen crew, including Jeff the head chef in action and their cohesiveness was outstanding. Our waiter, Omar, was very attentive and concerned throughout the meal that our needs were met which they were. We have eaten in the dining room areas, but they can't hold a candle to where we sat! One doesn't generally know what goes on to get their food to them, but this is a very good opportunity to experience it sitting in the kitchen area.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
As usual, we were met with quick service and great food. I would always recommend having a reservation as the place is constantly full; however, if you have not reserved and have the time, it is worth the wait. Go into the bar and receive great service until you are seated or ask to be sat in there (kids okay) and the bartender will take care of right away.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'll come here again!
Overall, this restaurant was very good. The food was very tasty and the presentation was great. The service was very accommodating and efficient. I will be coming to this restaurant again, even though I live 80 miles away.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great night out!
Our family had a gift card and we had gone about a month ago with my husband's family and decided we wanted to come back to try some new things we weren't able to try the last time. It was really fun sitting in the kitchen and our food was delicious. We had a great waiter and everyone was very friendly and helpful.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Get the kitchen table
I took a date to Bucca Di Beppo and think that the experience was very nice.
I had reservations through Open Table and had to change them last minute with no problems. When we arrived we were about 20 minutes early and the hostess offered us a table in the kitchen known as the Kitchen Table where we were able to watch the kitchen staff prepare all the food including ours. The wait staff showed us every dish prepared before it was sent out. We had very personalized service and were treated like Rock Stars. I would recommend it to anyone.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food noisy parties
Although the food and service has always been excellent the noise level is always a downer. Hard to visit with members of our party due to close proximity of other boisterous parties at the next table.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food (and lots of it,) good drinks, great service, what more is there to say?
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been here a bunch of times.
Been here a bunch of times. My wife and I really enjoy it. The staff and food are alway the best.

Daughter's birthday dinner
Our daughter loves Italian & Buca is her annual birthday dinner choice. Meals are served family style and portions are generous. This year like every other our family had a great time!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Like Grandma used to make!
Honestly, the food is as authentic as a chain restaurant could possibly get, and I'm from a bona-fide "grandparents born in the old country" East Coast Italian family. Love to come here for special occasions.
It IS always too noisy here for my husband's taste, but so are all chain restaurants.
I did love being able to make a reservation this time, as the long wait at chain restaurants on weekends in our area is another hurdle for my grumpy husband. :)
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Restaurant was fantastic for a big group and the food was outstanding. Had heard about this restaurant for years and finally tried it for my birthday celebration.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
For large groups or families or just a couple I would recommend the Buca as a good value for a good meal. Portions are great as is the quality and excellent service. Make reservations on weekends and you get prompt seating.

An emotional exerience!
From the outside it looks like a restaurant you'd see aligning the Vegas strip with its statures and welcoming nature, but once you walk in, pass the kitchen, and into the dining room, it reminded me of the places I'd go back home in South Philadelphia : Cozy, Dim lights, an upstairs room. Then comes the food. I literally found myself in tears! No joke--Literally! Forget Olive Garden. Forget the fancy so-called Italian restaurants that don't know how to make the gravy and pasta. Dear Lord! They know how to do it! The flavor, the smell and the portions were all just perfect. I couldn't stop thinking of home and the days as a child over my favorite Aunt Kate and Uncle Frank's house in New Jersey with the family. Thanks for the memories.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
First off the service was great our server was Valerie and she attended to our every need, A+ for her. The food was good as usual and the portions huge. My family left full and happy. This was a birthday celebration and Valerie made it feel extra special. Will definitely be eating and celebrating at Bucas in the future.

Happy Birthday Taylor
We made quick reservations with Open Table and was greeted and sat within five minuets. We sat upstairs and there was a massive party that took up 1/2 of the dinning space and was loud. The manager came to everyone's tables to offer a quite area of the restaurant. We were the only table that stayed! We didn't care, we were having fun and that was all that mattered. Our food was delicious and service was spot on.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great family dining
Great food, friendly staff, great ambience. The portion of food entree is really for a group. Makes it easier to order and have a conversation with the group....just like home. The noise is moderate which is probably why it may not be ideal for a romantic dining. But there are other rooms for love birds where the noise can be blunted by separating walls. It is not as crowded as in Chicago and Minneapolis. My family enjoyed the dining a lot.

Birthday Place with Kiddos
We went for a Birthday dinner for an adult but had 3 toddlers. We were put in a nice small room
by ourselves that worked out Great! The food was Great, the service Outstanding!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Just like home
I grew up in an Italian family and haven't had great authentic food in 20 years. Bucca made me feel like it was Sunday afternoon and my aunt was in the kitchen making all my favorite dishes. Thanks for a great evening
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
The only complaint i would have would be that we did have to wait for about 15 minutes with two small kids when we had made a reservation. However they made up for it with wonderful service. It was my husbands birthday and they brought him a giant brownie sundae. The service was stellar and the food was good as always. They had a large group to take care of and they still checked on us repeatedly. Even the manager checked on us.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food and service were amazing. Not to mention that you get a lot of food for a really good price. The servings for two were more than enough. I love Italian food and this is one of my favorite spots to eat for authentic Italian food for a great price and friendly staff.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
My parents were coming in from out of town and tasked me to find a restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner. They had a family dinner special that was a turkey, stuffing, and mashed potato dinner for 6.
Imagine my disappointment when we arrived and were recommended that the dinner for 6 was more appropriate for 4-5 people. We went ahead and ordered but got a side of pasta to make sure there was enough food for all of us.
It was disappointing having to keep my serving portion of mashed potatoes to a regular soup spoon size. Mashed potatoes are usually my favorite part of Thanksgiving!
I've eaten here once before and the portions were reasonable for what was recommended. Maybe they were running out of food or something.
Thanks for being open!
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
If you want to have fantastic food, generous portions of food, and great Italian food, go to Buca di Beppo. The service is excellent and the menu is varied and all the dishes are excellent. The wine is reasonably priced and all taste like you are in a restaurant in Tuscany. You can feed a large crowd for a reasonable price as their dishes have huge portions!! Go to Buca di Beppo--you will really enjoy yourself.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything was great. One suggestion. Be sure waiter mentions house bread. He never mentioned house bread but did ask if we wanted Garlic Bread, we were under the assumption that he was referring to the complimentary house bread, naturally, we said sure, and noticed a $6.99 charge, the way this is handled is a little deceiving and naturally upsets the customer. Bring the house bread then mention the garlic bread. Being a waiter while in college I understand a check increase but not at the expense of deceiving the customer. Other than that, the experience was great, really enjoyed have chosen your restaurant again for my clients birthday dinner.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Celebrated a birthday with the family. Fun atmosphere, good food, great service. One of the few places we would take the Grandkids (3& 7), very kid friendly.
