Great experience and great service. Four stars instead of five because Celebration Cake has been removed from the menu and it was a huge favorite.

The food I ordered had something spicy which was not indicated on the menu. I'm not into spicy foods and it made my meal unenjoyable. I shared my boyfriends entree instead. We had a coupon which the waitress took at the beginning then forgot to take off after presenting our bill. It was a good thing I went over the bill.

We dine at Buca often and particularly for holidays. Our twin 6-year old boys can be as loud and rowdy as possible, within reason of course, and nobody seems to care. We went for Thanksgiving this year (2017) and it was excellent! The turkey was great (wish I knew how they prepared it) and the "trimmings" were perfect, bountiful and authentic to my memories of grandma's house. Having the added ability to add wonderful Italian specialties, as well as kids food, to the meal was helpful for my picky eater. Let Buca prepare and clean up, so you can enjoy the rare family time!

Buca da Beppo is a kitchy Italian restaurant. The decor borders on garish including a pope room and plenty of Frank Sinatra pictures. If you enjoy family style platters, this is the place. Red checked table cloths, paper napkins, and plenty of menu options from salads to pizza, pasta, chicken and veal. A chicken saltimbocca dish was tasty. The brussels sprouts were undercooked. There are some decent wine choices and we had a very good bottle of rosso for a reasonable price. Our server was attentive and helpful.

Waitress was truly negligent. She completely forgot our side dishes and had to be reminded twice. There's just something about dining with a baby and kid that makes waiters ignore my family. I don't understand. We had to wait at least 15 minutes for her to even look over at our table to ask for the check. I'm very put off by that. The green beans were stringy and crunchy and not good at all. The pasta was under salted and garlic bread had like three tiny pieces of garlic per piece of bread. It's an Italian restaurant; how can you screw up the pasta?
I've been a long time patron of Bucca, but I really don't think I'll be back anytime soon.

Took my fiance on a dinner date. The food is always good. Wouldn't recommend sitting in the lounge as the bartenders can get overwhelmed easily and take longer to get to you but other wise pretty good

We had a gift card and this Bucca is right next door to our hotel. It was, eh? OK. Good server, friendly vibe, but the food is nothing special. Just ordinary Italian food, which we like, but this was similar to home cooked food, which is good, but one could save money staying home.

While our food was tasty, trying to get Gin and Tonics was difficult. Two of us ordered them and each time the tonic was flat. The restaurant seems to be tired, needing to be refurbished. We most likely will not go back.

We came here for my niece's graduation and service was subpar. The hosts were inattentive and despite having a reservation, we still had to wait for 15 minutes. Additionally, the hosts didn't bring a high chair to the table for a toddler despite being asked twice. Our server was great, but the interaction with the hosts set the tone for the rest of our meal unfortunately.

Only complaint was we had a reservation for 12 people. We called a week ahead to confirm the number but when they sat us there was only seating for 10! Then they wanted to cram the two others into the same table and we are all tall people. We saw another table set for 12 and we asked to be moved and they did it. After that all was fantastic! Food was great and service was good.

First time dining here for my girlfriend and I and we are very pleased and are returning soon! Great energy and awesome decor kinda give you a feel what authentic Italian restaurant may feel like! Food was delicious and the service was very attentive especially on a busy Valentine's night! If you are planning on trying this for the first time, bring your appetite! The "small" sized servings are plentiful for two, or do as we did and get two smalls to try more than one entree and take home yummy leftovers!

Our second time at this location for Thanksgiving. The bar staff were friendly, the place is hustle bustle. If you want a quiet dining experience this isn't for you . The ambience is unique and fun, entertaining pictures on the wall. Next time we may come and have a pizza, they smellled and looked wonderful.
