Delicious Family-Style Italian Food - one of the best versions of chicken parm i've ever had - the ambiance is fun and the service is always great.

We went here to celebrate my daughter's 13th birthday. This is her favorite restauran & all the others in the surrounding Philadelphia area have closed. A little far of a drive but worth the JOY on her face. LOTS of leftovers! A good time

As usual the food was excellent. My wife and I have commented that this is the best chain Italian food you can find. Beats Olive Garden hands down just make sure you come very hungry. This is as close to homemade as you can possibly get without making it yourself.

Kind of disappointed as even with advanced reservations, our table was in the bar area....

Went for my sons birthday.
Went for my sons birthday. Large table. Plenty of room for all of us to sit comfortably. Large family style portions. Enough leftovers for a couple of more meals. I always enjoy looking at the pictures on the walls.

Service was exceptional. Didn't
Service was exceptional. Didn't like one of the dishes we ordered it was taken off our check. I would highly recommend this establishment.

Buca di Beppo is fantastic!
This was our second trip to a Buca di Beppo (Florida being the first location) and both times we were not disappointed! The food is incredible! I wish we had a location closer to our home.

We had a very enjoyable dining
We had a very enjoyable dining experience. I forgot how much food is served here. The "small" size is really enough for at least 3 people in my opinion. Brought home lots of tasty food.

Our family was first introduced
Our family was first introduced to Buccas when we lived in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. So we were delighted when we moved to the Exton area and saw a piece of home. We love the food choices which is always delicious. Everything from the Apple mixed green salad, tasty breads,and the delicious main courses. Sometimes we even drop in for a Pizza. The warmth of the surroundings and the friendliness of the staff makes the experience complete. The added benefit is our reservations for Christmas and Easter dinner this year. A little non-traditional meal, but I think we have made it a tradition for our family. Thank you for the staff that gives up part of their holiday to make special memories for us!

We had a birthday party at Buca and it was great. Our server was very attentive and had a great personality. The food is excellent! I'd recommend Buca for anyone who loves Italian.

Excellent dining experience
We went for my Dads Birthday and had a very nice dinner. We have been there probably about 10 times and love their food. We had the Apple Gorgonzola salad and it is fantastic. We never had a bad meal there. Our waitress was Christine and was very good. We highly recommend her.
5/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
We could not get the real feel for Buca, cause no one was there but us(2). We were there Sat @3:45 pm . We were celebrating our 38 Wedding Anniversary so it was nice to be alone for that time. thanks

Good food, but no healthy options
Though the food is tasty, I really struggled to find lighter options on the menu. Even fish dishes were smothered in fatty sauces. Salad was pretty much all I could have without regrets!

Great dad dinner for family
I loved the family feel of Buca Exton last Sunday. From calimari appetizer to caprese salad through the chicken parmigiana, lasagna, and of course spaghetti & meatballs, all was prepared just like my (Italian) mom used to make it. Party of six seated immediately and served promptly and pleasantly. Family style portions made for quite a few leftovers to take home. I ate my husband's free Fathers Day canoli (yum) for dessert but that chocolate cake sure looked good!

A good choice
My husband requested we go to Buca de Beppo in Exton for Father's Day dinner. His favorite is the Chicken Marsala. The atmosphere, the food & the service are consistently enjoyable.

We went for Father's Day and we were not disappointed. The food was very good. We had a great waitrees that was super attentive and made us feel special. We are absolutely going back!

The meal was very good. Our waitress was also very good and knowledgable. I would definitely go back for either one of them again. I have also been to other Buca Di Beppo's and sat at their Chef Table. They were definitely much nicer and had a more personal setting. This one seemed like an afterthought to place a booth into an existing kitchen. Although it was nice and special I would question if I would get the chef table again. Also "Manager Bob" ended up being more of a waste being there than any help to the other servers. He must have passed in front of us 50 times and didn't even say hi to us or welcome, what a joke of a manager. All the other servers all said something to at least acknowledge us.

out with 4 small kids
My husband and I took our 4 children ages 7, 5, 3 and 1 out to eat. We chose to dine family style instead of choosing single meals off the kids menu (when in Rome...). Buca is a little noisy, but perfect for our crew. We ordered spaghetti and meatballs, salad and an additional pasta dish for the big kids (or adults). The spaghetti was exceptionally fresh, so worth ordering out a meal that we typically have at home. The kids had a good time and were well behaved :) We will definitely eat here again. In our pre-kid days, we gathered with friends for an early dinner on New Year's Eve. We like the Pope room :) Very fun!

Though it's 20 miles away, we make the trip a couple of times a month.

we love coming for the family
we love coming for the family style dining and value. 9 people ate for $125 before tip, with 2 kids meals, a carafe of wine and dessert to share. Leftovers too!!

Thank you Buca!
Thanks to the amazing staff at Buca di Beppo in Exton for taking such good care of our group for lunch. The food was great, the service attentive and loved sitting in the Pope Room. Great Job!

Saying that we've been there 3 times in two weeks says it all.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We could not have had a better experience at the restaurant. The chicken Marcella was very good, but Anthony's in Malvern is better as far is sauce is concerned. Servings were more than generous. The staff is more that helpful and friendly. I would go back again. BARBARA

family night out
Our expectations were exceeded - the wait staff was very attentive and friendly and the food was very good. We had the caprese and fried mozarella for apps, caprese was fresh and flavorful. The mozarella was crispy and came with a side of marinara. We ordered three small entrees due to family style portions - the baked manicotti was excellent - as was the pasta di roma (penne with chicken, artichoke hearts and sun dried tomatoes in a wine cream sauce - there was definitely garlic in the sauce but not overwhelming - everyone enjoyed it (and the left overs the next day for lunch). We also had the chicken marsala which was cooked well, the mushrooms were great - we've had better marsala elsewhere, but no one was complaining.

Good for Large Group
Had a group of 10 people at the restaurant on a Saturday night and had a great time. Food was good and server was friendly. My only complaint was that one dinner dish came out significantly later than the others. Our server was apologetic and it didn't ruin the overall experience for me. Will be eating there again!

Great family Italian
If you can all agree on things to share you'll love it. Limoncello martini is great

Solid Basic Italian/Large Portions
Fine dining? No. Solid food? Yes. Very unique decor. Thousands of interesting black and white photos adorn the wall. A tour of the kitchen on the way to your table. Some funny photos in the mens room, all quite interesting. The food itself, while not gourmet, is solid. They serve most dishes in small (for 2) or large (for 3). This is done with app's, entrees, deserts. It's similar (perhaps not quite as good) as the famous Carmines of NYC.
Our waitress was new, not highly skilled. But it is a lively, fun experience if you are in the mood.

We got together for a goodby lunch for my SIL who was returning home after meeting her new grandson. Very tasty food, Yum Yum! We ordered enough for leftovers which taste just a good, one day later (that's all it took for my leftovers) Great waitress thanks!

My daughter's 18th Birthday. Bob the manager and Megan the Waitress were so accommodating. Since this was an important event for us I can only say "Thank you for making her special day so SPECIAL.

Great Friday nite out!
We were seated within 5 minutes of arrival. The host and wait staff were friendly and very helpful. Selection was fantastic and our meal was served hot and delicious.
Thanks for a great evening dining experience!

I took my son and his wife with their two children and everyone had a great time and they told be this was a place to come back to because you get alot of food and it will feed them and the children at the same time.

A truly superb dining experience
My Woman and I had a fantastic lunch experience here, the food
Was so good and the waitresses were the friendliest and most efficient
I have ever had. The ambience was extraordinary, and the prices were
Very satisfactory. I'll be back many times in the future.

Went with extended family and our children. It was perfect. Service was friendly, portions were good and price was reasonable. I have been here many times and have never been disappointed. It can get loud when they are busy.

Tory's Birthday Dinner
We took my daughter out to dinner at Buca for her 20th birthday. We have been to Buca before, although we usually went to the one in Cherry Hill, NJ. SOOOOO sorry they closed that one as it was MUCH closer to us. Now we can't go as often because of the distance. ANYWAYYYY.....the food was DELICIOUS as usual. We have been consistently pleased with the food itself and the portions. Our waiter, Brian, was very good. Helpful but not overly. The ONLY annoying thing was a female diner in another room whose laughter was continuously loud and grating. It carried throughout the whole restaurant.....and that is NOT an exaggeration.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
We chose Buca because my mother-in-law is very limited by what she can eat. Buca is a family friendly restaurant with something for everyone on their menu. Our waitress, Cassidy, was outstanding. She accommodated my daughter's egg allergy and helped us celebrate my wife's birthday with a giant brownie sundae and singing. I think they were understaffed at the bar on the 5th which slowed service a little but otherwise our experience was very favorable.
