    We've dined (sounds too formal a word), we've visited Buca numerous times and numerous locations and the atmosphere is like visiting old friend's and eating at their house. Service is extra friendly, casual, and attentive. Food is comfort food and plenty of it. We always take home leftovers for meals later in the week.

    Server was very pleasant,friendly but not overly attentive. Restaurant did not seem that busy but we waited for an extendedtime to get the garlic bread we ordered when she told us it would just be a couple of min. Because we had ordered that we declined the table bread. The food was ok though the garlic bread & the marina sauce fell way below expectation. Have had much better at many other places. Our main dishes,the Buca salad, & the desserts were very good. Given the fact there are so many other good Italian restaurant chains in the area my husband & I would not pick this one to go to if it was just the 2 of us dining out. Disappointed since we had been hearing of this restaurant for years from the couple we were with.

    Enjoying a birthday dinner out with an almost two year old granddaughter can be tricky. Buca di Beppo was magic......from the sparkly cup to the ambiance, we all enjoyed our meal. The waitress was helpful and always there for us. The food was appreciated by even the Annapolis couple!! We had such a great time. Thank you so much.

    My family has been to Buca three times since our first visit at Christmas. Each time has been a pleasant experience. The staff has been wonderful including the manager who makes his presence but is not a nuisance. If I had a complaint it would be that the house dressing could be have more substance. The flavor is not bad but seems very thinned. I am a big sauce fan and some of the dishes were a little "under sauced" if I may. But there is no problem getting an extra dish of sauce if you ask. However, with a glass or two of their Sangria, you may easily overlook this obstacle. In the end I can't wait to back again.

    We went to Buca for our anniversary this year. It is one of the few places where I will eat Italian food. The food was fantastic, service was good, fast, friendly. Server was knowledgeable and got everything right the first time. Always love going to Buca for good Italian food and love the family style atmosphere.

    The staff is always friendly and the food is always good. Only thing is that the waitress automatically handed ME the check assuming I was paying. This was most likely because I was with a younger looking friend. Wait staff shouldn't assume anything and put bill in the middle

    My family and I had a reservation for my father's birthday, and my engagement celebration. They made my father very happy for his birthday, but never once we were mentioned with our engagement, and yes, they were told before hand. I was ok with that, but my fiancé was a little upset over it. We weren't very clear on the family style dinners, since it was our first time, other than my mom and I for lunch once. It wasn't explained very well, but we made it thru it. The food was fresh and most of it very yummy. The sauce on the ziti was almost non existent. The garlic butter sauce on the shrimp pasta was not very garlicky. Had to wait past our reservation time. We had to ask for coffee more than once. Bread also. Dinner was still tasty.

    My husband took me here for Valentine's Day. Never even been to that section of White Marsh mall since Boscovs reopened. It had such a family 'hole in the wall' feel, I didn't even know it was a franchise. Waiter was very nice. I saw families, couples, everything. Made me feel very comfortable. And the convenience of using Open Table is always a plus! The food and wine we're amazing. I love anything Italian. Prices not bad either for the shareable plates. Will be back very soon!

    My wife and I went for Valentine's Day. Maybe it isn't like this every day, but they packed us in like sardines. The portions were huge, and the food was just ok. We had the mozzarella bread, the italian sausage stuffed shells, and the chicken carbonara. I wouldn't recommend anything nor would I steer you away from anything we had. They do have a MONSTER brownie sundae, but we were too full to try it.

    Took my wife and son on Valentine's Day, had an 7:30 reservation got there a little early to beet the rush. Although we didn't get seated until 7:45 it was well worth the wait. (Being Valentine's Day, expected the wait to be much longer) The employees are very polite and friendly, and made you feel right at home. Waitress came right over and took our orders, and didn't have to wait long for it's arrival. The food was very good and well proportioned. I would recommend this resaurant to my family and friends.

    For our 3 year anniversary my boyfriend and I decided to go to Buca di Beppo because I had heard it was a great romantic setting especially for Valentines. However, this was not the case. We were sat in a corner in one of the rooms where people requested to be because they knew the server. The server spent more time talking to those customers that he knew then making sure we were okay. I saw the waiter a total of three times- to get our drink order, to get our food order, and to give us the check even though he was sitting and conversing with the people he knew. The food was okay but the service on such a special night was definitely not what I would have hoped.

    Buca Di Beppo was a fun experience .. great food, standard Italian fare but very well made. The Mozzerella garlic toast is addicting. Also had the Apple Gorgonzola salad, delicious and the penne with vodka sauce, also very good. Will definitely return. The service was excellent.

    For a chain restaurant, Buca di Beppo is a good, solid Italian restaurant. You need to be aware of their portion sizes - "small" feeds 2-3 adults and large feeds 4-5. So you need to go with people who are willing to make selections that they're willing to share. As long as you're prepared to do that, it's a very pleasant, consistent experience.

    My server Gary was the best service I have gotten in a very long time. Even. He is one the reason I will continue to come back. Gary was very attentive to us and made sure what we order was great. He made feel like we were dining at home. I like how he made us important even though he had other tables to attend. He was a phenomenal server. It is a great asset to your restaurant. Gary should be in charge.. I was having a bad day and when I left it was great.

    We went there for two birthdays and had a couple of kids with us, ages 7 years old and 18 months old. The waitress, Lauren, couldn't have been any nicer and the manager came in to be sure we were having a good time. I did think the appetizers(calamari and chopped antipasta) were somewhat pricey but nevertheless enjoyable.

    I have dined in a Buca near Irvine, CA so I was excited when this one opened near our home in Maryland. We arrived early for our reservations and were promptly seated. Our waitress did an excellent job of explaining the "family style" to our non-Buca initiated children. Sevice was prompt, food was OUTSTANDING, I have never been to a place where everything that was served was so well prepared, the salad was cold and crisp, the entrees were warm but not piping, untouchable hot. Will be back soon!

    I would recommend this restaurant to small to large groups, but not couples looking for a romantic night out. My wife and I went here for New Years Eve. I was expecting a place a bit quieter than this, somewhere to have a more romantic quiet dinning experience. However, it was noisey and we were sat next to a larger group. This was MY FAULT though for not researching the type of setting. The food was great, except for the stuff shells being a little overcooked/hard. Our waitress was very polite and attentive. My wife & I took forever to decide on what to order, but our waitress was very patient and friendly. :-) I love the family style serving of the food... Everyone can get a little of everything that is ordered which is pretty cool!

    We ate here 12/22 we had 1 pm reservations but still had to wait for our table. The restaurant did not seem overly crowded for a Sunday afternoon. We order 3 family style dishes salad, lasagna and fettuccine supreme. The pasta dishes came out before the salad which was intended to be our appetizer. Our waiter came every 15 to 2o min to check on us. He was nice but not overly attentive, we had to ask for refills on drinks and bread. The food was decent the portion size was accurate the large was supposed to feed 6 people and 6 adults we could not finish even one of the dishes and ended up taking home leftovers.

    I have been to many Bucca di Beppo's before and loved them so we were so excited to take people there. I was surprised at how expensive you have become and the food was so-so. Nothing was served hot, the taste was not the same and none of the kids could eat their kids pizza's Very disappointing for the occassion and price. Most likely will not return or recommend!

Even the other waiters, waitress', prep, sous, kitchen chef, and managers asked about our meal...and dining experience! We felt comfortable and welcome. Lots of communications and friendliness, and assistance with eachother regardless of their positions for service.
