My boyfriend and I came to this restaurant as first time diners, but aware of the style of the restaurant. We were hoping to celebrate New Year's Eve. We had received a gift card from a friend and truthfully, had heard good things; we were in the mood for some delicious Italian food. Our first questions revolved around how best to order for 2 in a restaurant set up to serve extremely large portions. Our waitress was not knowledgeable about the food, options for us, and answered in one-word answers in regards to how we should order ending with a shoulder shrug and "Can't you both just decide on the same thing?" Food was awful, bill was 70.00, service was terrible, and my word limit has now been cut off in this review. We won't be returning.
The food was amazing! The service however was not so great. I don't know if our waitress was having an off night or something, but we didn't even get the bread every other table was being given upon arrival... We had to ask for it AFTER we had received our appetizer. They didn't have mini meatballs, which is the appetizer we ordered, so they gave us 1 big meatball - for free. The food came and the portions were quite large, as stated in the menu. Each dish is meant to be shared, so the small feeds 2-3 and the large feeds 4+. Great place to go w/a group so you can try multiple items. We pretty much had 2 waitresses service us, whenever they each got the time, as so it seemed. Not sure what the problem was. We were never rude or anything.
I received a gift card and wanted to try it out. Becca was everything and more the food was a lot we had lunch for the next day. I loved the service and atmosphere of the area, it was AWESOME.
Of the many time I have dined at Bucca the food and service has been nothing short of fantastic .
This was my second visit to Buca di Beppo and I was not disappointed. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. Our server was delightful; attentive but not overbearing. Order the Tiramisu. It is delicious!
The food is excellent. The Macaroni Rosa is better every time. I also recommend the Apple Gorgonzola Salad. The service is always exceptional, whether you are in a large crowd or a company of two. The music is not too loud.
Took my family and friends here for an Eagle Scout Court of honor. Very poor service but great food!
It was my 70Th birthday and ya'll made it special for me and my family. Great night, waiter was great, food was great/
Salad was great, bread was cold not hot and crusty, red sauces bland, my sauce is so much better, meat sauce was ok but Olive Garden macaroni grill and carabas is so much better
Went for the traditional Thanksgiving feast Buca style and it was fantastic! I am a vegetarian and my husband is not, so Buca was the perfect choice for our Thanksgiving dinner. Absolutely love the food with plenty of leftovers! Highly recommend!
tHE FOOD WAS GREAT AND WE WERE GIVEN MORE THAN WE COULD EAT.
My husband and I did something different this year. Instead of doing all the Thanksgiving fixings we went out since our family was out of town this year. The food was just like grandma use to make, she was Italian. There were left overs the server graciously wrapped up for us to take home as leftovers.
I made our reservation for 7 people on Thanksgiving Day because my Father-In-Law had just gotten out of the hospital
and we didn't want my mom-in-law to cook. What a pleasant surprise!!! Our meal was so delicious we all decided to do
the same next year!!! The stuffing was the best any of us had ever had!!!
Thanks Bucca for making our Thanksgiving Day a special one!
Always a great experience, especially for holidays. We have made it a tradition. The GM, Mark, and his staff always go the extra mile for us.
Great experience! Our hostess Brook was awesome and went out of her way to sit us all together on a busy game day weekend! We will be back.
My wife of 57 years and I met our son and his lady friend for a pleasant dinner. The service was great and the food was excellent, with generous servings. We will most certainly make return visits and recommend this restaurant to family and friends!!
there is no option for a single diner as everything offered is for 2 or more. will eat for lunch but never again at dinner
Food was not good, prices obscene, service passable, ambience zip. For the same $$, we could have dined extremely well in many other restaurants.
Amazing food, quick service during the lunch hours. The server was knowledgable of the menu and the various chioices.
I had requested a quiet table via OpenTable. The manager met me at the door and suggested their "patio" on the mall concourse, away from the chatter of the barside TVs. She checked on us a couple of times to be sure we were happy. The "crazy good deal" was a soup, sandwich and salad combo advertised only on the chalkboard out front. No substitutions allowed, but we dined really well on $4.95 a piece, plus tax and tip. The waitress was friendly, attentive and helpful, so I was happy to tip like I meant it. Join their website first! It is how I found out about reserving through OpenTable and I also got a couple of slick coupons for future visits.
I love that Buca is a family style restaraunt. It gives the feeling of sitting at ones own dinner table and serving food to family and friends. Food was delicious. A bit pricey but very tasty.
Very friendly staff, great menu and good ambiance. You will leave with leftovers!
We were able to gather around the table and talk. We received prompt and friendly service. The food was excellent and served in a timely manner. It was a medium sized party (8) and we felt that it was only us in the place, because it wasn't loud or overbearing. We could hear and be heard.
My friend. Barb & I lunched at Buca on Friday, 23 Aug. The wait staff was great & very professional. And the food! Out of this world:-) BUT I'd like to see less a la cart things like bread & salad. And if you do choose to keep them a la cart, perhaps free refills.
Buca never disappoints. The food is great in ample portions and the service cannot be beat.
Excellent food and service. Could not ask for more.
Love the food, love the service! Two thumbs up!
Everything was exceptional, from the service to the food. We were celebrating a birthday, and they unexpectedly sang to the birthday girl. The food was delicious, and our server was great!!!
They were able to get our large group in last minute and were very accommodating when extra people arrived unexpectedly. Glad we ordered conservatively. The large size dishes are huge and one platter could easily feed more than four people. We ordered 3 pastas and 1 salad for 15 and still had leftovers. Service was good.
As always Buca is a great dining experience and value.
Buca's has always been a favorite of mine. We frequent the one in Brentwood/Cool Springs area in Tennessee. You can go with a group which is fantastic or just with another couple or even as a couple and still feel like you are being treated special. The food is ALWAYS wonderful and just like we ordered. Can't go wrong with Buca's.
Our waiter Carlton was the best waiter we have ever had at any restaurant. He was very friendly and energetic. The house buca salad was delicious and great size for 6 people to scarf down.
Food was plentiful and delicious, service was great. Definitely would go back again!
Would defintely recommend this restaurant!! My in laws were in town for the night, and we all wanted to try something different. I've been dissappointed before when not going with what we knew. But this place was AMAZING. The bread, salad and portions sizes were generous, tasted great and we even had dessert which we NEVER do!! And even that was great!!
The service was very good. I made a reservation and they seated us immediately in the very cool Pope Room which was definitely unique. Our waitress was patient and attentive and even the hostess and bartender were super friendly. I would definitely come back, but only with at least two or three other people since the portions are impossible to finish by yourself and one other person.
Overall I would say that our dinner at this location could be summed up as follows: Great food, Friendly atmosphere and Loving family! Our appetizer and dinner was brought in a timely manner; our server was well educated about the meals and preparations; and did I say the food was GOOD!!! Will be coming back soon!
We went to Buca di Beppo for Mother's Day.The ambiance was great- the food was good! and the kids all had a great time. The appetizer platter was good- calamari, stuffed mushroom caps and fried mozza.... the house bread was hot and fresh- although the oil and balsamic could have used some pepper and cheese to make it better.
The kids meal Mac and Cheese was cheesy and homemade- the lasagna was very good- and the Quatro al Forno was perfect for 2.
The Tiramisu for dessert was great and served six comfortably! We will be back.
Family style. Good portions. Would come back.
Buca di Beppo has a great atmosphere, great service, and even better food! Was overly satisfied from the meal. We went to celebrate for college graduation and were very happy with the overall experience.
I wish we had a Buca in the northeast section of town, however, this one is great! My office staff loves to come here and husband and I come often on the weekends
