We were.very happy with the food. It was creative and tasty. However, the service was slow and distracted. When we asked for something it would take much to long to get it; like when we asked for pepper flakes and grated cheese for our pizza. I know COVID-19 has added extra requirements for yhe servers, but they should have these worked out by now.

It took us over an hour to get our food. The waitress came by once asking for drink orders but then pretty much ignored us. We had kids with us who were begging for more rolls because they were starving. Our reservations were at 5:30 and we didn’t eat until close to 7. The manager comped some items, but really I would’ve liked to have the 2.5 hours of my life back.

The service was good and the restaurant was not crowded.
The 2 things that could have been better were that there was a draft coming from the ceiling area where we were sitting and the shrimp alfredo that my wife had came out to the table at room temperature. We had to ask that it be brought back to the kitchen to be heated up. I was eating my lasagna, which tasted good, while she waited for her food to be brought back. Never a good thing.

Service in bar area at high top tables was terrific--kudos to bartender doing double duty on Tuesday 02/04/20. Only critique is that pizzas were not as crispy; not sure if different dough or different chef, but both pizza crusts were a bit soft and almost "soggy" in center.

Food and table service are excellent! Always tasty food and friendly, prompt service. The check in process and hostess staff are horrible. You can have a reservation and it means nothing. You wait with everyone else in the order you arrive. You will always wait 15 minutes or more even if you see open, empty, clean tables. I love the food and the service, but I'm usually so frustrated waiting to be seated that it takes most of the meal to begin to enjoy the experience. If you go, plan to wait - no matter what and don't waste your time making an OpenTable reservation.

Been coming here for years. The pizza is not as good as it once was. Not sure what’s changed. Did appreciate the ability to make a reservation through open table. Makes it easier with kids not to wait for travel. We ordered the Margarita pizza and it was just okay. Time before the fig and Prosciutto pizza was good at the start but became too much after the first slice. Pasta dishes are better I believe.

The service was painfully slow and the order was delivered wrong and cold (pizza) despite the fact that there was more staff than customers in the store. Upon complaining to the manager, we were comped the food, realizing they have some serious staffing issues. Doug the bartender has a dazzling personality and did his best to save the day. Thank you Doug! Hopefully they solve the staffing issues because we like their food and would like to return!

After we were seated and placed our order, we waited and waited and waited. After 45 minutes, i asked about our order only to hear the waiter didn’t enter it. All the time more people came in after us ordered and had their meals and already eating. The waiter acknowledged the delay due to the fact that he did not enter the order and did nothing until I complained to the manager. After that we got our food. The app was cold and the pizza was bland. Not sure if it worth going to this place anymore. What a disappointment.

I don't say this lightly, but I really think that the server was high on something.
She took the order but left the menus on the table (which were place overhanging the table near her); she brought the rolls, dipping sauce and straws; we ate the 3 rolls provided (party of 2); we left the unopened straws visible near the menu as we wondered where the drinks we ordered (2 waters) were; she came by, looked at the table, asked if we would like some more rolls but apparently did not notice the empty drink napkins she had put on the table originally nor the unopened straws. Finally, after about 15 mins. she came by with the additional rolls and said she would check on the order; at that time I had to ask if we could have some water; after awhile she brought the meal which was very good. It was a "meatball monday" promotion and we had a meatball calzone & and a meatball pizza (both of which were 1/2 price). Towards the end of the meal she did come over to ask if we wanted a water refill, which we took her up on. When she brought the waters she asked how the food was and we responded in the positive. We had to wait awhile after we finished for her to come by again and we asked for a box and the check. Waited another while when she came with the box and check. At that time I noticed that the charge for the meal failed to account for the promotion for that night. I had to look around for her from the table and finally got her attention to tell her about the mis-step. She apologized and stated that she has been "forgetting that". We waited another while for her to come back with the correct check. Then had to wait another while for her to pick up the check and payment. I could understand some of all this if the restaurant was busy but it was not, at all. At the height of all this she was dealing with 2-3 tables. When my card was returned I paid the bill and we could finally leave (around 9:30 p.m.). We arrived at 7:45 p.m. BTW in the midst of this she did collect the menus.

We waited a long time before being greeted and given water. We then waited a full hour with still no entree and we had to leave to catch a movie. My husband stayed behind to pay the bill and get the now-take out. Management did not charge us for the meal so we were grateful and gave our server the tip for what would've been the full amount. Management sent him home with 5 pizza boxes. Upon arriving home, we discovered that 2 boxes were empty and the remaining 3 boxes were not the pizzas we originally ordered. I chalk it up to a bad night at Bertucci's but we probably will not return.

The restaurant is not equipped for large parties. Service was horrible had a table for 20 spoke with the manager several times. Chicken Parm was old, pizza burned some folks ordered food and after some dishes were being brought out a couple of folks were told they no longer had anymore of the dish they had ordered, would they like something else, really? Drinks were hard to get. So I will never host a large party there again

To start off, the table was sticky so obviously hadn't been cleaned properly. The menu was limited not offering anything original. The dinner rolls (which have always been A drawing card for Bertuccis) had to be requested and were served halfway through dinner. The music, which for so many years had an Italian theme or Frank Sinatra songs, was unpleasant and loud.
With so many new restaurants coming into that area I am surprised that Bertuccis isn't stepping up their game in order to be competitive. Instead my experience showed they were not the one great place they used to be.
