Buca di Beppo - Allentown (Whitehall) Ratings and Reviews
Waitress at bar was very attentive even though she was busy. Food was good.
Only complaint is that staff stands outside front door in uniform smoking cigarettes- that's gross!
Other than that we also loved a roasted lemon thyme chicken dish you used to have but discontinued - So now we stick mainly to salads .... don't care for the lemony chicken breasts that replaced it , kind of rubbery- I liked the great taste of roasted chicken.
Made a reservation online, and was taken to our table with 10 minutes of checking in. This was our first visit, and the atmosphere was both fun and homey. Our server Nina took a drink order right away, returned with drinks - and then left us unattended for 45 minutes! We didn’t even place our order.
When we finally got her attention, she admitted she forgot about us. We finally ordered, and our appetizers arrived quickly. The bruschetta was very good, and is served in a neat glass. We also ordered cheeses garlic bread, but were served a pizza. Nina took the pizza from us (after it was on the table for a good 5-7 minutes) and then brought us the garlic bread (which was also very good).
Our entrees were delicious, but there was also a great deal of confusion over the bill. Dinner took over 3 hours. Thankfully, we weren’t in a hurry and took the opportunity to chat with friends. But there was little in a way of apology.
The food and atmosphere were excellent, but service was terrible (just about non-existent). We will try eating there again, hopefully with better results.
Been here before so I knew that this was the right place for a large party. Food was very good and quite tasty. Appetizers exceeded expectation and our staple chicken parm was perfect. Great place to enjoy our New Years dinner. Family dinning at It's best!!!
Good food with large family style portions. Pasta was not over cooked. Chicken was excellent. Servers was very professional, but they could use more help as it took awhile to get seated even with reservations. Overall a positive experience which will have us returning to try other dishes.
The food was delicious. The service was very poor. Spent over 20 minutes trying to get more water from our nonexistent waitress. So while the food was delicious, having nothing to accompany it beverage wise was disappointing. Not the best experience for our first time at this restaurant.
This is the third time we've been to this location and we've had a great experience very time. The family style courses offer a good opportunity to try several items on the menu. Our last visit was on Mother's Day. I had made reservations through Open Table and forgot to change the number as I'm usually just making reservations for my wife and I. This time, both of our parents were joining and we found out as we arrived that we only had reservations for 2, not 6. Even on an extremely busy evening, the staff made accommodations and found a way to seat us after only a half hour. We were so appreciative of their efforts, even though it was my mistake, which had to be difficult on this particular day.
We had a great time. My son and granddaughter were visiting. My granddaughter has nut allergies and they were thorough in making sure she would not be exposed. She was not able to eat the bread because it was made off premises. The mixed salad was great. We added prociutto and gorganzola. Terrific! I had the salmon which was done perfectly. The manicotti and the rigatoni were very good. They've added a lunch menu which you can have small portions. This was perfect for us. We've been here before and they serve family style which always was too much; and its had to share when everyone wants something different. Service was friendly and attentive. I think everyone should try Buca again if you haven't been in a while.
I love the birthday deal they send to e-club members, $15 off your meal and a free birthday cake. They have some new things on he menu since I was there last and at always delicious. We had a large group sitting behind us, they came in after us and left before us and the difference in noise level was VERY noticeable. But that's what you get with family style dining in tight quarters. But overall I love Buca and will be back as usual.
Our server was friendly, helpful, and attentive. My husband and I thought that the Apple Gorgonzola Salad was outstanding. We ordered the small, which was more than enough for 2 people, it may be enough for 4, if they are each just wanting a side salad. We brought the rest home, but it was not as good the next day. We also ordered the Veal Parmesan and a side of Fettuccine Alfredo. The veal was enough for 2 to have a big portion, or 3 or more smaller portions. My husband seemed to like it, but prefers a little more sauce. I tasted some, too and thought it was flavorful. The fettuccine was good and plenty for 2-3 people to have as a side. We enjoyed our evening out at Buca and would return. I wish we had one closer to us.
Service was poor, but likely because location was understaffed (day after Christmas). Spent over 2 hours in restaurant due to slow service - not good with 5 children in the party. Had to remind server of drink requests on multiple occasions; meatballs on child's plate were raw in the center - luckily a parent cut into them before the child ate any. Out of multiple items which caused us to alter menu selections. Since we were visiting family, we have no way to know if this was typical.
Great experience!! We were out of town on Thanksgiving, and were very happy to have the option for our group to eat at Buca di Beppo. The food was EXCELLENT, the service was FANTASTIC, and the experience was just perfect!! We also ordered a Thanksgiving Feast to go, and were very satisfied with the to-go service and the food! Thanks, Buca di Beppo, for making our out of town Thanksgiving fun and tasty!!
My friend chose this restaurant to go to for his birthday. I had never been there. The experience is very different! Platters ordered are meant to be shared. The portions are big and the food is out of this world! The service was friendly and top notch! My family usually goes out for the New Year and I have already suggested this restaurant!
