- An off nightOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 2/21/2014We have eaten here many times and enjoyed ourselves. This trip seemed to be an off night. The food service was EXTREMELY slow. It took an hour to get our salad. Our dinners took the same. The waitress apologized many times, but a manager never came to our table. The food was good, but it was a disappointing visit.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wonderful Birthday dinnerJim1952Dined on 2/18/2014The family style dinner was just what we wanted for our birthday celebration for my wife's 60th. The server recommended some entries for us and checked back with us many times to make sure we were enjoying our dinner. The food was very good and we had enough to take home. Would recommend Buca di Beppo for small and large groups.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- HappyAll2goodDined on 1/10/2014On our anniversary we decided to give Buca a try, it had been recommended to us as a great place to eat. We were seated upon arrival even though we were a few minutes early, the food was excellent and worth waiting for. We had chich Ken parmesan and spaguetti and meat balls and cheese cake for dessert. Look forward to trying other dishes and desserts.Special Features:
- Awesome Food! Great peopleScrantonianDined on 12/31/2013Cant say enough positive things about our experience at Buca. My girlfriend and I are very picky eaters and we couldn't have been more pleased with our meal, service, and experience. We even had our leftovers the next day because we couldn't resist the Baked Ziti and the Chicken Limone. Though we live out of town, we will certainly be back for more at Buca very soon!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- We love your restaurant andnyrickgrantDined on 12/31/2013We love your restaurant and try to visit it many times throughout the year. Your e-mail hit me just as we were planning for New Year's Eve and so we made a reservation. We have always had good experiences with you, and this was no exception. We did get placed in a corner between two large groups, giving us limited room, poor access for the servers and high noise level, but we still enjoyed our dinner.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great après skiLuluDined on 12/31/2013Took kids skiing in Poconos for the day on New Years Eve. Was able to book table at Buca de Beppo day prior. Arrived on time and seated immediately. Kids loved the decor and the food was very good. Enough to take home and make another meal from!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- mediocreunhappyDined on 12/30/2013bartendewent because i had a coupon from the last time i went and had a bad experience. still the same and no improvement one r on duty doing to much work and we were once again not impressed. i would only go again if i had to.
- Food was great as was serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2005Dined on 12/30/2013We had reservations, and there was a party waiting when we arrived, but we were seated immediately. The server warned us that there would be a wait for the food since they were very understaffed and slammed in the kitchen. Even with the warning and the server being very gracious in thanking us for being patient, we waited over an hour for our food. I will go back because I love their food, but it would have been nice if we had forewarning when we arrived to maybe wait in the lobby or give us a lead time so we could then go shopping or something. There is nothing worse than sitting at your table seeing and smelling the delicious food for an hour in anticipation.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- horribleOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 12/26/2013This was the worst experience I ever had at a restaurant. When the food came out we were missing two meals. The waitress didn't notice till we said something. She left and never came back. The other two meals did not come out till the others were done theirs. The waitress never asked for refills. And the manager never cane over to table to check back after we complained. I would never recommend this place to anyone.
- Christmas Dinner a la "B Team"CincoDined on 12/25/2013I think the "B Team" was working on Christmas. My pasta wasn't cooked through (and no, it wasn't al dente, which is how I normally cook my pasta). It was actually white and uncooked inside the noodles when I took a bite. The waiter was attentive and took ti off the bill promptly, when we told him. No complaints regarding service at all. My husband's chicken dish was tasty. We shared it, and we had plenty to eat, even without the pasta. One data point doesn't make a line - I'll try Buca di Beppo again, and see what happens.Special Features:
- The food, service and atmosphereGmanDined on 12/25/2013The food, service and atmosphere were excellent.. The staff make you feel welcome and are willing to help you however, even if it was Christmas night. The staff never missed a beat on making the night great.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fun family dinnerMommaBDined on 12/12/2013We have enjoyed going to Buca for years and as usual we were not disappointed. Two members of our party had never been here and they loved the food. We got stuck in traffic and ended up with a two hour detour. We called several times to tell the restaurant we were still coming and they were very accommodating. It helped relieve some of the stress. We will be back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Italian foodluvitalfoodDined on 12/6/2013Good family style italian food. Pizza is different ... almost has a crust like a pita. Salad was good. Wine was crazy expensive, even for one glass. That is a rip off. Overall, decent place to eat with a group.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- We've been to Buca di BeppoaaaaDined on 11/28/2013We've been to Buca di Beppo several times now and we find it especially nice for groups and special occasions. The chicken parmigiano was very good, as usual. This time, we ordered the chianti braised short ribs and everyone at the table found them to be very tasty and very tender. These will probably become part of our order when we return to Buca the next time.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- We're hooked on this placeOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 10/27/2013My family and I meet here for every birthday. (There are many!) we absolutely love the food, atmosphere and service. Having young children,I love that it is not the quietest place to eat, so if they get a little loud people don't mind. By sharing the huge portions, we get a nice variety of food at a very reasonable price.Special Features:
- Always Great!JeffZDined on 10/25/2013Dining at Buca's is always an experience, an event! The food is always good and fresh, the service is excellent and the staff just seems to enjoy being there.
