  • Mothers Day Dinner
    Jonesb930
    Dined on 5/12/2013
    With reservations we waited an hour to be seated. The lobby was packed with people with and without reservations. It got pretty crazy as patience ran thin for most of the groups with reservations. The food is exceptional as well. I have been to this location many times and have never had a wait to be seated. Obviously the Mothers Day crowd overwhelmed the people making seating decisions. I feel that the management should look closer at how they handle holiday reservations and operate on the assumption that everyone will show until they dont before giving up tables to walk ins. I wont hesitate to revisit this location on a regular night, but my holiday reservations will go elsewhere.

    We love Buca. We tried the new spinach chicken Cannelloni. It was excellent. We also had the Prosciutto cheese stuffed chicken which is one of our favorites and of course the chopped salad that we always order. The service was great. The waiter had a great sense of humor. One of the server's that waited on us in the past even came over said hello and said he would look out for our needs. What an amazing wait staff.

    A great place to enjoy a family birthday get together. Everyone was super friendly. I eat a healthy diet so I found there was not a lot of options for the healthy eater but I was very satisfied with what I chose. Our server was very helpful and informative. Overall a fun place and I would recommend to my friends.

    Growing up with an Italian grandmother, I would rate the food as poor. Sorry, but I had better at home. That being said, kids did enjoy the experience, the family style servings and kitchy atmosphere of the decorations. The service was excellent. Would I go again? Probably not.

    We had made a reservation and were seated right away which was great. The staff was friendly but after we recieved our drinks the service went south. We had requested our son's meal to come out first if possible and to get our sald with the meal. Our salad arrived first and 10 minutes later the bread showed up. The cooked portion of the meal took forever to get out and we had a waiter switch off in the middle of the meal which seemed to help since the second waiter was on the spot regularly.

I ALSO HAD TO SEND IT BACK BECAUSE IT WAS LUKEWARM! THE WAITER WANTED TO KNOW IF WE WERE READY FOR IT YET. WE HAD JUST BEGUN EATING OUR SALAD SO HE WAS TOLD WE WOULD BE READY IN 10 MINUTES. THEY MUST HAVE LEFT IT SIT ON THE COUNTER FOR THE 10 MIN. THE WAITER NEEDS TO TIME IT BETTER. WE WERE THERE FOR A LEISURELY NEW YEAR'S EVE DINNER! NOT A RACE TRACK MEAL! THEY DID NOT HAVE THAT MANY CUSTOMERS AT 5PM! THE WAITER ALSO SPILLED THE COFFEE OUT OF OUR CUPS INTO THE SAUCER 2 TIMES! WE HAD TO PUT NAPKINS UNDER IT TO SOAK IT UP BOTH TIMES!

    Very surprised during this visit from last visit of last Christmas.First, a table reserved under the blowing air conditioner, had to settle that issue. Then no bread served, and when asked for a refill, he said sorry, our dining room is ready to close. When advised of celebration, the group of charmers came over singing with a candle, but disappointed my daughter as she did not get a token piece of cake with that.sorry.

    The restaurant was severely understaffed on Christmas day in all aspects. the bartender was covering a room as a waiter in addition to pouring drinks. Consequently, everything was slow. Our appetizer was served literally a minute before the entrees arrived. We are used to a different experience at Buca. If there will not be enough staff, do not open. This negative experience will definitely weigh on our decision to patronize Buca in the future.

    Love this family-style Italian Restaurant. Old World Charm ambiance with great tasting Italian food. Have not been disappointed with any of the dishes we have ordered there and we go quite often. There's always enough food to take home too. Great value, high quality ingredients and most important great tasting food. OpenTable reservation made the experience even more enjoyable since we don't have to wait anymore!! Used to have to wait at least 15-20 mins in the past, but now we just book through OpenTable and by the time we get there, we are ready to be seated. Best find for 2012!!

    We were seated in the bar and the service wasn't extraordinary since the bartender/waiter couldn't devote his attention to us completely. The garlic bread was way too expensive for the serving they give and amount of garlic and cheese they applied.

    Understanding that this reservation was on Thanksgiving, there is still no excuse for not being able to present us with a proper check to pay. The inept waitress gave our table the wrong check at least three times and seemed upset with us each time we pointed out the errors. The food was okay with the calamari not crisp enough and the steak, well just meat with no flavor. We usually enjoy Buca and we will be back.........just not on Thanksgiving.

    It was Thanksgiving, but that is no reason for such poor service and an unfriendly waitress, when we got our meal, for dietary reasons i cannot have white meat, waitress said no dark meat. O.K. so I didn't eat turkey. The serving of gravey was so little along with the cranbery sauce, after our table were done eating I heard other servers offer their tables more gravey, cranberry sauce AND bread(which we had NONE). We had none offered. Even if we wanted to ask for more our server was hardly seen. This experience told us that eating out for Thanksgiving was NOT going to happen again especially at Buc di Beppo.

We just might make this our Thanksgiving family meal... every year. And our wait staff was outstanding.

    Had a nice meal for four the other night. We started with the bruschetta which seemed a bit lacking. The waiter said that the cooks were busy so he put it together himself. Lots of cut up mushy tomato on top of toast? Not impressive at all. We followed up with a very nice eggplant parmagian and spaghetti and meatballs. All was good but not really great. Good home cooked food. The hostess was very friendly and gave us a tour of the restaurant and the waiter was also friendly but almost crossed the line of being a bit overbearing. It was all good though and we will return. Its unfortunate that everything is family style as we would also like to visit when its just my wife and I but its easier to go to a regular Italian restaurant

    I had a reservation for Thursday at 7pm. I arrived at 6:50pm and as told that it would be a few minutes. Needless to say I was not seated until 750pm in the bar area. People thet came in after me were seated before me. The hostess could care less.My order was taken by the bartender. My pasta arrived quickly and it was hot and tasty. However no basket of bread was delivered and never saw another person until it time for desert and the check. Management needs to know what is going on and do more of frint of the house training. I never even saw a manager to tell them what happened.
