Buca di Beppo - Allentown (Whitehall) Ratings and Reviews
Bucca is always great for Italian cuisine and the mixture of funny and traditional ambiance. We ordered pizza, spaghetti, salad, and pasta (all small) and it was more than enough to feed the five of us and still take some home. Kevin, our, server, was great. He stopped by many times, smiling, and asking if we needed anything. He took part in some of our discussions and jokes and really exceeding our expectations for service especially on a super busy holiday. We loved the food, service, and the restaurant. Thanks for a great experience and Mother's Day!
Buca is a great place because every time you go there, you are in a different area and a different seat. The walls and ceiling are filled with italian decor and photos, and statues. It is always entertaining to see what surrounds you every time you go there. All of their meals are served in 'family size' So they're large orders that can feed 2-5 people. The food is good and the atmosphere is better!
My daughters took me to Bucca for Mother's Day. We had all been there before, but enjoy the food so much so we figured what would be a better place to go than Bucca! It was GREAT to make a reservation!!! Our table was waiting for us and on a busy weekend like Mother's Day, it was REALLY great to have a reservation. That is another good reason to go to Bucca, besides the great food ! Everything was delicious and our server was very sweet and friendly. We just enjoy Bucca so much....our favorite is Chicken Carbonara, but that's just us. Their desserts are awesome too!
We celebrated my son's college graduation in the Pope Room. We had a party of 9 people and the room was intimate enough for us to have our own little celebration separate from the rest of the restaurant. The food was very tasty and the service was fantastic. Everybody had a great time.
We had a large party of 14, and the service was excellent, and the food very good! One thing to mention- I crossed my legs while sitting at the table, and gum became attached to my pants (gross!). Upon inspection, we found many, many other pieces attached to the underside of our table. I did nicely inform the manager of this, and showed him the gum on my pants. While he was profusely apologetic, it would have been nice if had he offered our large group a discount of some sort- or even a free appetizer!
While the ambiance was truly amazing and the concept of this restaurant very out of the box and interesting, we were left a little disappointed with the food after the amazing salad and just ok appetizers. As a party of 6, we ordered 3 different entrees to share and were assured by the wait staff that it would be more than enough. We were quite surprised how small the portions were and it was barely enough to share for 2 people much less have anyone else try anything from 1 platter. After having had appetizers and salad none of us were really starving, but we finished eating the main curse in less than 10 min and were left rather sad and somewhat hungry.The Tiramisu for desert was amazing and actually also enough for out entire table.
We were a party of five for dinner after a special occasion. The waitress was helpful suggesting drinks and was friendly and attentive. Our food came out perfectly timed between courses. The appetizer combo was a great mix, something for everyone. The calamari was a favorite. The Bucca di beppo salad w/meats and feta was very tasty. We enjoyed the garlic bread with chunks of garlic on it. Our entrees were chicken parmigiana and the platter of four pasta selections. We were very happy with everything. We ordered the "large" of each selection because we had two grown boys and we still had leftovers to bring home. We will
definitely come back. My husband is Italian and very picky about his Italian food and he was pleased with every dish.
The food at Buca is delicious. The staff is friendly and my glass was not empty for long. It would be a nice place to go with friends and have a leisurely meal. The decor makes me very uncomfortable. There are many pictures mixed among the amusing that are inappropriate or even vulgar. It does not add to the amusement or silliness but takes away from the fun. I would not be a regular guest at Buca because of the decor. I would not bring children here.
Overall, food was good and portions were extremely large. Our waitress (Jen) was outstanding. She was personable and always within sight constantly checking on us. Only constructive feedback was the wine. Prices seemed more expensive than comparable restaurant chains.
I usually enjoy this restaurant. This visit left a lot to be desired. We had reservations for 7:00. We weren't seated until 7:30ish. The service was slow! I had to repeatedly ask our server for items. This was the first time ever that we experienced burnt food. They have also changed their menu. I wasn't really impressed at all! I've had great service and food here in the past. I am hoping it was just an off night for them. I will visit again in the future. If I have the same experience, I will not be back!
This was a first time visit for a family birthday. We were not impressed with the food and it took a long time to come. Their recommended "Buca Special" mozzarella garlic bread was not warm enough and not cheesy enough, it looked nothing like the picture on the menu. The "Buca Special" spicy chicken pasta was not very spicy and there wasn't very much chicken in it. The Penne A La Vodka was not very flavorful. So, we loved the atmosphere for a family birthday, but the food was less impressive than expected. However, the antipasti salad was plentiful and delicious.
once we got to bucas they told us that the online thing to reserve tables never works....so they didnt know that we were coming. They the manager basically bashed the system and then we had to wait anyway. After waiting they gave us a both that was wedged in the corner by the bar. With me being pregnant and my grandmother in a wheel chair there was not a physical way to be in the booth that would be very tight for the skinniest person. After my father went and told the manager we don't fit they said how they dont really use that booth because of the tight squeeze. We waited again and then finally got a normal table and the food and service was good. I just feel that the manager could have handled it better.
We normally love Buca for the atmosphere and family style food. It is a great place to spend an evening with friends. This time the food was very bland, lukewarm and all around disappointing. The service was mediocre and the restaurant wasn't even that busy. I sure hope this is not the new norm.
