    Or waiter was not the best. he forgot drinks and did not check up on us. it was like when he was only there for the job. not the best people person. he was ok. but it could have been better. hid whole attitude was a little off. almost like he did not care. it may have been an off day. we all ha e them but mabey he needs a little reminder that his of days need to be left in the kitchen...not at the table.

    I went there with my wife for her birthday. I told them the occasion, and they were on it, cake and the works. I like the way when you enter the place, they take you through a tour the kitchen. Ya, the kitchen you see all of the place on the way to your table. I think that was great.. Now the food, we could not eat all of a small order, and it was very good. This is a good place to take your family, and friends, the more the merry. I like this place

    My daughter chose to dine at Buca after her middle school graduation to celebrate her accomplishment. The food of course was outstanding, and the server was great as well. The only negative thing was that I had reserved a table, and the person that was to accompany us to our dinner arrived shortly before I did and told one of the hostess that a booth, right next to the bar, would be fine to sit at. I wish that they had confirmed with me if a booth would be okay or not because I felt too crowded in that booth the entire night, and I felt that it was inappropriate for the occasion that we were there celebrating. Other than that, would definitely return to Buca.

    We have eaten at this restaurant on several other occasions. One of the reasons we chose to eat there on Mother's day was the $20 in future dining that was offered. We made a reservation and seating was handled swiftly. I am concerned that we are frequently seated in the bar at this restaurant even though we dine with a young child. We were never offered bread even though all the tables surrounding us were. Additionally, we were never spoken to about the $20 certificates for Mother's, even though they were discussed with others dining around us. Our waiter was pleasant and I understand that it was busy that day, but I didn't feel that we should have to request everything that should have been offered.

    Waited 30 mins over our reservation. Then we waited 30 mins for a server to come greet us. I then went to the host stand to find out if we had a server and was told that they lost the server. The food was luke warm and the pasta was dried out. The lasagna we ordered was burnt. This was one of the worst experiences I have ever had. I am in the industry so normaly I wouldnt write a poor review and I understand things happen but this was really bad.

All 12 of us were happy and all of the food was amazing. Although it is to far to drive from Tucson for an every week dinner. So all 12 us are eagerly awaiting you opening up in Tucson and the best place would be in the area of the Spectrum Mall. Love Love your Food....Fran

    Quick stop for lunch at Buca and another good experience. Buca's normal portions are over-sized (family style dishes), so I chose one of their lunch selections. Reduced down, the portion size was just right for me. Our server was very friendly and the service was quick. Definitely recommend Buca for either lunch and/or dinner - it's a family favorite.

    I cannot recall the name of our first course, but it was absolutely delicious. It was chicken with artichokes and capers. My son and I would return again, especially for that. Our reservation was in a quieter spot and I much appreciated that as I have a hearing loss. The waiter was most helpful and very kindly took two photos of us. Thank you for a great Easter.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    The atmosphere at first felt a bit overwhelming, lots of pictures, lots of statues. Being taken through the kitchen just to get to our tables also granted me a fine view of foods to come, and by the time we got to our seats, the entire atmosphere was generally inviting. Even if some of the pictures came off bizarre. The service was quaint and the food was above exceptional, I especially enjoyed their Italian Purple Pear Soda. The crowd was also very formal and respectful, not loud and rowdy.

The kitchen was backed up due to the busy night, which we expected. Our Server was wonderful, Rhys and very engaged to make sure we had everything we needed until our dinner arrived.

    Went to Buca di Beppo on Valentines day with my husband and mother so was not looking for a romantic dinner for two...We arrived early and where sat in a large room with one other table , bye the time we left the place was packed. Lots of family's with kids ( all very cute) Ordered a bottle of wine and the server came to the table fumbled with the opening and just sat it on the table and walked away... other than the lack of wine presentation the food was good and large portions,perfect place for family's and large party's.

    The food was great and delicious, But the service was horrible and rude. Me and my wife went for a early Valentines Day dinner to avoid the crowds. We were able to avoid the crowds and have a nice dinner besides the service. The waitress was very short and rude at the only came back want after we were server dinner. She never came back to ask if we needed refills on our drinks or if we needed anything else. Once we were done with dinner she came to the table next to ours and packed the food for them in the doggie bags. We didlove not gget the same service she just dropped off to take away stuff and left and only came back with our bill. When she came back she said "oh you packed it" and rolled her eyes and walked away. Not happy!!

    Because I've been to Buca man times this experience won't prohibit me from returning. Ordered calamari and it was over cooked and too chewy along with the breading coming off. First time we've ever not enjoyed their calamari Ordered sausage and chicken penne. It arrived with no sausage. Told two waiters there was no sausage and they said if we were unhappy with the amount of sausage they could bring more. There was no sausage. Made us feel like we were idiots. By the time the sausage came we were done eating. Someone was not checking standards on Saturday night. But we still love Buca.

    We went for christmas night dinner. i understand it was christmas and they were busy. but the whole staff seemed so unorganized. i got there prior to my scheduled reservation time and waited over 20 minutes to get seated. The lady working the front was giving the most ridiculous excuse as to why no one was being seated. When we finally got to our table, we waited for a while to even get our drink order. It took an hour to get our salad appetizer. we ordered spaghetti, pizza and another pasta dish. when our pastas finally arrive, there was no pizza. our server told us that some other table got it and he was sorry and comped us and said another was being made. it was so poorly made and it tasted awful. next year we wont be going there again.

Italian menu with your favorites, waitress very helpful describing all food items and helping us select good variety and amount to order for our group of 6. After enjoying and filling up on our tasty food, we still took home left-overs. Reasonable food, reasonable prices, giant portions. Worth the trip.

    Our group went on Christmas Eve, so the place was very busy. We were seated in an outdoor area that was blocked off from the outside with canvas walls, and there was a heater close by. Sounds of traffic were constant. I made my reservations two weeks ahead and expected to be seated inside. The food was very slow getting to the table, but when it did come, it was good. The waitress apologized for the slow service and wanted to make it up to us, so we ordered more drinks, thinking it was on the house, but when we got the bill, we had been charged for them. I like this restaurant, and I assume all will improve when the night isn't so hectic.

    Always have a great meal at Buca, and this visit was even better than most. Our waitress, Caylie, was very friendly, chatted and laughed with us, and was very attentive. As always, the portions were huge. My wife and I shared a SMALL entree. And the cannoli is to die for. This was her sister's first experience at Buca (we've been to Buca in Chicago and Boston) and she and her husband raved about the experience. Too bad there is no Buca in Hawaii where they live. The only negative is some rooms can get quite noisy, especially if a large group. But they quickly relocated us to a smaller, quieter room.

    The food was delicious. The sangria was lovely, but too much ice. We needed to use a fork to stop the ice so we could actually get the sangria into our cups. The cups were too small to actually hold any extra ice. We sat in the table in the kitchen and it was a blast. We enjoyed people watching and see all the action in the kitchen. If you have a party of 5 or less, I recommend requesting the kitchen table. We had a total group of 5 people, and ordered one appetizer and three entrees. It was more than enough food to go around. All in all, everything was great about this dining experience, and would love to come back!
