We Always Prefer "Ryan" Well Mannered, Friendly, and Takes Care Of His Customers.....Food Was Excellent With The Exception of One Pasta Dish With Italian Sausage, "Really Spicy" Entirely Too Much Red Pepper.......

    The staff was friendly but they took over 20 mins sometimes longer just to get a refill on a drink. It's an Italian restaurant that can't even make pasta properly and I reserved my table for a group of 15 less people showed and we asked that they remove the extra plates from the tables. Instead of doing that even though they could clearly see we had absolutely no space at all at the table they just walked out ignoring the request completely. The drinks are ridiculously prices because they force you to buy a cup with every drink. This place is horrible!

    The atmosphere was OK and there were interesting pictures covering the walls. The salad wasabout average - nothing to make it special. The wine list is limited, but the worst thing about the meal was that our entree was barely warm-almost cold. We ordered the small portion lasagna and it was plenty for 2 people but lasagna should be hot. We only ate small portions at the restaurant and took the rest home. We reheated it the next day, and it was very flavorful. When we told the waitress that the lasagna was cold, she asked if we wanted a hot one to take home???? Why couldn't the one we ordered be hot??

    We really appreciate how family friendly the place is, and as usual, enjoyed our meal and the experience. I was not please, however, when I received a notice from OpenTable afterward that we were a no-show, and then had to spend some time writing up our actual experience to prove that we had honored our reservation :-(

    We came early on Father's Day (I treated my wonderful husband) and immediately felt as if I were in some cafe in Italy. The atmosphere was just perfect....no bright glaring lights, the red checkered tablecloth...all of this and more set us up for an unforgetable day. Our compliments to the chef for a meal that was simply delicious. This was our second visit in three years, and I must say Buca di Beppo is still the best Italian Restaurant in the CSRA. Kudos to all your staff that make this restaurant great!

    Having dined here last month on Mother's Day and had a pleasant experience, we knew what to expect. Actually had the same waiter and the entire place to ourselves! We have toddler twins, so it is nice to go somewhere that they are made to feel welcome and has a kid's menu that is suitable. We enjoyed our meal and came home with a nice doggie bag for later :-)

    We will not be returning! Horrible service, my drink was never refilled, nor was any one else in our party.My husband's food never came because it wasn't ordered, my side item never came. 2 hours was plenty of time for our food to be done but the server didn't put in the order. Just lost us as customers!

    Decided to try it for Mother's Day since it would be toddler friendly. The place wasn't that busy, but the service was a bit on the slow/distracted end of the spectrum. We had never been before, so the advice on portion sizes really helped. For the most part, we enjoyed the food, however, the roasted garlic mashed potatoes were awful :-( They were so chunky that they looked like cauliflower in a white cheese sauce. It was basically a bowl of crushed, boiled potatoes in a bechamel sauce with no hint of garlic whatsoever! There was more garlic flavor in the side of broccoli that we chose than in the potatoes. Won't order that one again! It was a good value treat & the experience was pleasant enough for us to want to go back, though :-)

    I lived in Italy for four years. Here in the states, the "good" stuff is hard to find. Buca's flavored capture that authenticity and they have a nice sized wine list to pair with it. Like a traditional trattoria, their portions are meant to be shared, so the three of us ordered 2 pasta entrees and one garden salad entree off the "small" menu. This provided all three of us with salad, lasagna and baked ziti...and there was still enough left over for a full to-go box. Love Buca di Beppo's!!!!

    Normally when I go there, the food is always excellent. This time not so much. A lot of our items were over cooked (lasagna, chicken parm., salmon) and were too dry, they were not generous with the sauce to make these dry plates better, so a lot of the food was not eaten. The service was great but the food not so much this time around.

    Overall the food was good. We lived in Italy for 3 years so we are a bit spoiled. The calamari was more breading than squid but the spicy marinara sauce was great. The main entree of chicken, sausage and penne was fantastic. The molten lava cake was very dry on the outside but fairly moist on the inside.

    We received a gift card for Christmas, so we ordered more than we typically would. We had a small caesar salad & two small pasta bowls for my self, my husband, and my 17 year old son. One bowl would have been more than sufficient! We were able to take home leftovers for all of us to enjoy the next day! The waitress was attentive and the food arrived quickly after ordering.

    Went with another couple. Had never been. Didn't know we'd have to eat the same thing because portions (and prices) were so big! Ordered garlic bread, which was same as free bread but with major garlic spread on. Bread seemed to be sourdough, not italian crusty. Didn't see a small dinner salad choice so skipped that. All in all wasn't a great experience. Ordered chicken dish and shared with my husband and took some home. Was charged over $4 to put plain spaghetti underneath the chicken.

    Dined on 12/24/2013
    It was Christmas Eve and I think they were psyched about closing earlier than usual. As a result I think the food was not as good as usual. Salad was excellent as was the spaghetti and meatballs. However the chicken in the rigatoni was overlooked and the pasta was a tad too "al dente". The seafood dish with the mussels .... Del mare? was tasty.

    Great food and service! Excellent, individual customer service. Music was alitle loud for our group-wide conversation. Asked our server to lower the music. The front-end manager personally came to our reserved room and asked if there was anything else he could do to make our visit more enjoyable . We did not feel rushed to leave. Stayed till after 9:00pm - began at 6:00pm. Awesome experience! Will return.

  • We loved every dish! The appetizers
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 12/13/2013
    We loved every dish! The appetizers were so good that many of us would come back just for appetizers and salad. We had a large party but the food came out timely (not rushed) and the server ensured our bread and glasses were never empty. We needed a little more table space once our food came out but to accommodate, once we were served, they moved our dishes to a near table until we needed more. Only suggestion would be for more guidance from the server on portions to order for a large group; we ended up with more food than needed. The large portions served more then 4 people (more like 5-6) so we should have ordered small portations since we ordered many to pass/share. If this was better suggested, we most likely would have ordered dessert.
