We had a very nice time. We had our 86 yr old mom (w/walker) along. Everybody was very accomodating and helpful with getting her in and out. We made reservations early (4:30) so as to be out of peoples way. The people that worked there were wonderful! Thanks for a good evening!

Buca was WONDERFUl! We were
Buca was WONDERFUl! We were celebrating my mother-in-laws 60th birthday and the staff was so accomodating. We also had our 2 yr old with us and the staff was so great accomodating us with him and even making a bib for us out of a plastic bag :-). I also have celiac and had to order from the gluten free menu and the options were great. We had a wonderful time and so glad we chose Buca for our celebration. We'll definitely be back. Thanks again!

Fun Easter Dinner
We had a group with three adults, 4 teenagers and a 16 month old. Everyone liked the food and we were all comfortable and had a good time. The service was excellent and our waiter helped us select size and amount of food. All delicious and we even had some to take home since I was over-enthusiastic about making sure we tried several things. Our reservation was ready when we arrived and everyone was friendly. A nice time!

Mother's Day Treat
We had a group of five. We made the reservation online and our table was ready and waiting at 7:30 pm even though the restaurant was very busy! Buca is our family favorite for a quick stop for dinner or for special occasions. Great pasta, stuffed mushrooms, wonderful salads, fun times!
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
I know it is family style - but even the 'serves 2-3' would serve 4-5 of us! Food was good. Staff was very nice. The restaurant was quite empty so the noise level was good and service speedy and helpful. We'll be back.
5/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was my first time at this particular Buca. Our server was very nice and made excellent recommendations for our entrees. Our appetizer and entrees arrived very promptly. Overall a good experience, everything I would expect to have at Buca.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a group of shrieking teenagers, 16-17, and a screaming baby in our room. My husband has hearing aids so it was extremely difficult for him to hear.
Food was good.

We came to Buca after graduation, kind of late dinner - 9pm, but were accomodated well, appetizer was served very fast and overall food was good. Thank you for all Buca employees!

There is no surprise when
There is no surprise when you go to Buca. Good red sauce Italian family style meal. Go with a group and enjoy. The best dish we had was the chicken marsala which was as good as you would get in an upscale Italian restaurant. Also the apple gorganzola salad is very good.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fun, good food
We had a great time celebrating Father's Day. The food was great and so was the service. I'd definitely recommend it and will be back!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a group of 6 and shared spaghetti, lasagna and caesar salad. Everything was very good. The fried mozzerella appetizer is the best we have had anywhere! Nice restaurant for families.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a coupon and the restaurant
We had a coupon and the restaurant was in a convenient location. We felt like Italian food and the portion sizes were large with plenty of leftovers. The service was fantastic and our attentive waiter clearly liked his job....a refreshing change from some of our dining experiences elsewhere.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
it was so cool to walk passed the kitchen before we where seated
so many wall articles to view and read the history
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Concerned about value
It is getting expensive. Dinner for 6 with wine and tip was about $200. It's doesn't seem to be the value it was years back.

Buca's is always a favorite
Buca's is always a favorite go to for group dining. Great for birthdays and other large gatherings.They serve food in family style portions. Favorites are: The cheese bread, Fettuccini Alfredo, House salad, Stuffed Shells. Beware: Very garlicky, and heavy on the peas! Order less than you think you should, we always go home with large amounts of left overs, which are still great re-heated. Italian Ambiance is abundant. Delicious.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious and Delightful!
We were warmly greeted and seated in a booth for 4 to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The menu had so many things we wanted to try but we finally narrowed it down to the apple/gorgonzola salad, the 4 pastas, the chicken lemon and the side of italian sausage with onions/peppers. It was amazing how quickly the plates emptied! It was delicious! I especially loved the lemon chicken with capers in the sauce...yum! The sausage and peppers was fantastic... I liked the salad, but it wasn't particularly italian. I'll try an antipasto next time. My vegetarian daughter and her guest devoured the 4 different pastas...I didn't get a chance to sample. The brownie birthday dessert looked great. It was gone in a flash. The evening was a huge success!
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great service
I went on a date with my husband. We had a great experience, as usual, at this location. We will be back, alone or with the kiddos.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have been here many times and never have had a bad experience. The food is consistently great and the service is impeccable.
This time we even brought a coupon for a free small pasta, we didn't read the small print and ordered something that didn't qualify. When we gave the waiter the coupon he checked to see what he could do, he found that he could not accept it for what we had ordered but suggested that they make a dish that did qualify and we took it to go. This turned out great! My kids are home for the summer and I work from home so we ended up with a lunch feast catered by Buca.

10th birthday celebration
My niece loved the special attention for her birthday, a sign on the table and the singing. Food and desserts were excellent never a disappointment!

I meet my girl there and everything
I meet my girl there and everything was perfect. Can't wait till we can go back.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a blast!. I have been here before, but the rest of the party had not! They where all raving about after we left!
Good job everyone! For you rating people... 10 out of 10 for service, food and over all experience!
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We came because we had a coupon
We came because we had a coupon for the free single serving lasagna. My husband and I split that as well as the meatball appetizer and the prosciutto stuffed chicken. The chicken was great as usual. It's one of our favorites. The lasagna was just ok. I don't think either one of us will ever order. The meatballs were great as well! The noise in the restaurant was a little over the top for me. I know its always like that though. It just makes me feel anxious.

GREAT EVENING WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS
WE WENT TO BUCA TO CHECK OUT THE FOOD FOR FOUR FOR $40. WE ALL LOVE TO EAT AND HAD A HARD TIME PICKING ONE ENTREE. WE THOUGHT WE COULD EACH ORDER THE ENTREE WE WANTED. THE PORTION WAS ENOUGH FOR ALL FOUR. THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS AND OUR SERVER WAS FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. WE WERE SEATED IN A BOOTH AND IT HAD JUST BEEN CLEANED. THE CLEANER LEFT THE SEAT AND TABLE SOAKED AND AS WE SLID IN OUR CLOTHES GOT WET. THIS WAS ANNOYING. THE GREAT FOOD AND WONDERFUL SERVER ALMOST MADE UP FOR THIS. NEXT TIME WE WILL CHECK BEFORE SITTING DOWN. WE SAT AND TALKED FOR A TIME AFTER DINNER AND FELT THAT OUR SERVER DID NOT RUSH US OUT.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Buca still has it
My group had the 4 for $40 meal deal and it was very good. We had the Caesar salad, garlic bread, and ravioli with marinara, with the Vesuvius lava cake for dessert. Everything was good and plentiful and satisfying. We left stuffed and happy.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just like home in Bensonhurst.
The place and the food came right out of my childhood. It was my grandmother's cooking all the way from Barrie Italy. From the bread to the baked pasta. And the music was so fitting from way back then too. You make my family proud.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM

Service was outstanding. All servers work as a team. Friendly and prompt. Buca is always a favorite for birthdays.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bucca is always a good time and the food is great. No matter what you order, come hungry, because the portions are ginormous! It is never disappointing.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food has always been good,
The food has always been good, our kid likes the kid cheese pizza, I love the options to share the portions so you can try different food. Portions are large, so be aware how much you order.

First time we were there.
First time we were there. Was not impressed with the entrance to the Restaurant but once you passed that area and entered the dining area, it was much nicer.

Special Birthday Event
We were celebrating 2 Mom's birthdays on Sept. 28 and the restaurant is always great! However, it was so busy that they CLEARLY wanted our table turned (we had 11 people in our party). Our guests were still eating and three wait staff came up (within a few minutes each) to ask if we wanted our remaining items boxed up. We told each one that we were clearly STILL EATING. We had appetizers, a salad and several entree's and dessert. Instead of the salad coming before the entrees they came at the same time. We were rather surprised, but the waitress was kind enough to remove the charge for the salad (manager over heard our surprise, so I am sure that prompted action). We are looking forward to having our next celebration dinner there again!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Too long away
It has been a few years since we have eaten here. it was as great as ever. Food, service, atmosphere all great. We were celebrating a birthday with a group and they all loved it. Won't wait as long to get back!

My friends for Buca experience
I had been to Buca before and was going with my husband and 4 friends. We booked for a Saturday night after a busy shopping day.
The hostess was amazing when we arrived. Eric was the manager that night and explained the whole Buca idea to my friends. We goofed and forgot to give them our coupon but they had no problem reversing the bill. Eric came back to our table at least two/three times during our night there just to chat! The hostess remembered us as we left and that is amazing with all the people who come and go in there. She even took time to give us a tour of the chef/kitchen table and how to book it next time we are in town. Fabulous experience would go there over and over. Oh yeah the food was outstanding!!!!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Buca was great as usual -
Buca was great as usual - everything but our waitress. She must have been having a terrible day and could not summon up the energy to come to work. We were a party of 7 adults celebrating a birthday on a busy Friday night. Drinks were slow in coming and she was slower, only 3 of us had drinks!
Food was wonderful, food service was efficient.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We attended the restaurant to celebrate a few birthdays together and our experience was great. Our server was fantastic and even helped us decided on menu items and portions since many of us had never eaten at Bucas before. I would highly recommend this restaurant for groups wanting to celebrate a special occasion.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
I always have a fun time coming to Buca. The crazy pictures on the walls, and funky statues are all so unique & fun! Our waiter was very attentive and fun, and the food delicious!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
As good as ever
It's been many years since I lived in the area (pre-children). I finally returned with family in tow. I was pleasantly surprised there was a kids menu along with the family style menu I was used to.
Service was at least as good as it used to be.
I'm also very happy I can easily make reservations on line.
I will not wait so long again to return.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went on a recommendation from a coworker. Left there willing to recommend this place to all. Food was excellent We had the chicken park and spaghetti and meatballs. Best park I've had and the meatballs..........omg great. Food prices are in line. Take the wait staffs recommendation when it comes to sizes of dishes to order. Drink prices little on the up side but not outrageous. Go to Buca. You won't regret it.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went to Buca's for my daughter's 8th birthday. Our service was great and they made her feel very special!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have gone here for the past 2 years with the family the night before Thanksgiving for our family dinner. We have had great food, and great service both years. We enjoy it!
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Yum! Great option for turkeyless Thanksgiving. See above.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Festive and Friendly
As usual, Buca was a great place for a family, holiday gathering. Food was ample and tasty per usual and the service was outstanding. There's something for everyone and every occasion at Buca di Beppo.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Thanksgiving Feast was wonderful and a great way to escape cooking a huge meal. Our server was friendly
and knowledgeable. We love the ambience of Buca with its comical and kitschy wall art and always enjoy our
the delicious Italian dishes.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Thanksgiving menu was
The Thanksgiving menu was exceptional, which featured all the traditional components and condiments that one generally associates with a fine Thanksgiving meal. The turkey was plentiful and tasty. The garlic mashed potatoes were delicious as always. The meal in general was served quite quickly from a friendly and well-prepared serving staff, and all our food was fresh and delicious. Add in a reasonable price point and I was a satisfied customer.
