The reservation was made for a birthday celebration. I notated it was for a birthday under the "special occastion" drop-down. I put a note in the comments indicating who the birthday guest was asking for a cupcake with a candle. I got nothing. No cupcake, no candle, no acknowledgment that there was a birthday at all. End result - if you want to celebrate something special, secretly beforehand, don't dine here! Very dissapointed my request was ignored.

We have Ben going to Bertuccis since it opened. The tomato sauce is the best of any restaurant in the area and the pasta is mixed in the sauce before it arrives at the table... not schplotted on top with white pasta showing below. The pasta needs time to “receive” the sauce before eating. That is why it is cooked al dente....to finish cooking in the sauce. Every Italian knows that. That is why spaghetti tastes better the next day. Insist on it!

Sat 15 minutes at table before acknowledged by a waitress. Waited 45-50 minutes for food- way too many pepper flakes. Made new meals with no peppers. Manager never came to our table . Waitress , Jesse very nice. Restaurant has gone down hill and prices are ridiculous.

We had a very good meal, because the server was very good and we enjoyed the food. We especially liked the grilled vegetables on the side of the chicken piccata, the wings were good and the pizza as usual. It was very pleasant on a Sunday and not loud in the restaurant.

We enjoy Bertucci's. The food is consistently good, as is the service. We ordered pizza and Chicken Parm. Their pizza is good tasting and the pasta dishes are as well. I frequently take advantage of special dinner offers they frequently offer.

I was happy to see that Bertucci’s seems to have changed their rolls recipe to something closer to their original. Finally, good bread again!
This location has been going downhill for a while, but may be on a comeback. My shrimp scampi was very tasty- the best meal I’ve had at Bertucci’s in quite some time. My son enjoyed his chicken tortellini gratinati. My granddaughter’s children’s menu pizza was just OK. A huge plus for me was seeing that they have switched to paper straws!

Service was very slow. Our reservation was at 415, we were seated by 420 but our entrees didn't come for 1 hour. at 530 we finally got our entrees. Although good, they weren't the best I have had from Bertuccis. I don't know if opening it up to reservations created more than they could handle, but the food when we received it, seemed like it had been sitting under a warmer for a while. noodles were stuck together and very little sauce. Spending time with our family was the highlight, not the food.

Im glad we made a reservation on Open Table because it was a 2 hour wait on Mothers Day. The food was terrific but what made our evening so fantastic was our server. I believe her name was Shelby, she was AWESOME. On top of everything and we didnt have to ask for anything she was always there. Thank you for a terrific experience we will be back.

I'll begin by saying that I'm not a big fan of any chain restaurants and this one is no exception. My Mom (84) wanted to go here for Mother's day, which is why I made the reservation. Despite being extremely busy, the service was very attentive. The bread arrived piping hot and was very good. We ordered a large pizza and it was just OK. The sauce they use is very bland. It wasn't awful, but I wouldn't order it again.

Overall a good experience. We originally made plans to celebrate Mother’s Day at a different restaurant but had to change things at the last minute. I was surprised to see Bertucci’s had availability (I believe I made the reservation online at 1030am for an 11:15 reservation).

When we got there, the manager (? Older man, either the manager or host) said hello and this conversation followed
“Do you have a reservation?”
“Yes we do, it’s under my name, Nicole”
“Nicole I sent you a message. The restaurant was supposed to have our reservation system turned off. You were not supposed to be able to make a reservation. I will squeeze you in as a courtesy”


What a strange way to start the meal. I didn’t even know what he meant by “squeeze you in”. The restaurant opened at 11 so when we arrived a few minutes later there were very few people in the restaurant. the section we were seated at had *no one* in it except for us. When we wrapped up our meeting (at approximately noon) the restaurant was telling people they had a 10 minute wait.

My point is .. I have no idea why the manager even told us that information when we arrived. Other than making us feel like we were a bother .. it accomplished nothing.

On another note, our meal itself was great, the waitress was great, food was great .. it just started out a little strange.

We’ve been to this Bertucci’s twice and have had great experiences both times. We really enjoyed the salads that we ordered to accompany our pizza. The lettuce was crisp, the croutons were tasty and the size was perfect. The pizza was also outstanding. We’ve never had a Bertucci’s pizza before and made the mistake of ordering a large for just 2 people! A small would have been sufficient, though we did enjoy the reheated leftover pizza the next night. We had the Bruschetta & Burrata pizza which was unique. The mozzarella cheese was tasty as was the balsamic fig glaze. We’ll be back for this one again.

The service and price were excellent and we had a very enjoyable evening.

No point in reserving a table when you still wait for it when you get there 20 minutes!!
Then wait another 20 for a waitress to get our drink order. Needless to say I will not be back.
