The food was OK, but selection of dishes and wines has become very limited. We were also told we could not order coffee Cappuccino (in Italian restaurant! Tell it to Italians!). The restaurant now is just OK for lunch. It is sad, because before Buca di Beppo was the best in town. I hope the new management will improve quantity of food and wine.

It has been years since we have been to Buca di Beppo and we wanted to give it another chance. The food was great! Very large portions - it serves more than the menus indicate. We had a wonderful time here! Our only complaint was the service - our server was incredibly slow for a Monday afternoon when the restaurant was nearly empty. We had to ask for things multiple times, including bread, drink refills, etc. We had to ask for our check three separate times and eventually had to find someone else to bring it to us.

Horrible experience. Bad service, average food quality, had to refill our own drinks and bread, had to find someone to locate our waiter. Orders were wrong and not corrected until we were ready to leave. The final insult was getting handed a bill with items we did not order and being told that we would have them comped to help make up for the bad.

We were a party of 9 with 1 waiter that we had to find to get service. The table next to us was a party of 12 with 2 waiters that came by every 3-5 minutes. Even after talking to the manager it didn’t get any better.

Best to avoid it and just go to Olive Garden.

The server was terrible. We didn’t get greeted for at least 20 minutes after we were seated. Once we ordered the food took over an hour and a half to come out. This would be understandable if it was busy; however, their was little to no rush. I would never recommend this location.

Hardly any one in the restaurant, customers or employees, at 1:30 pm and untrained server was a nightmare. Ended up comping the bill but we still tipped the server. We were there almost two hours. Poor planning by management with no backup and now they have lost two customers. Food was just okay. We will not return.

First time at Buca di Beppo. Upon arrival our reservation was not held or set up. A table of the same size, 5, WITHOUT a reservation was seated ahead of us and then we were asked to wait. When finally seated we were originally asked to sit at a table for 4. We took it upon ourselves to move to the neighboring table which was set for 6. There were an abundance of large tables and booths available, not sure why we were seated at a table for 4.

Service was unknowledgeable and lackluster along with the food for the price point.

Half of the mussels we ordered were closed indicating they for the majority weren't fresh. The edible ones were good though. When the waiter asked if we're were done with them, we said they were closed. He responded with "Ok." and simply removed the dish. Unacceptable for a $30 plate of mussels.

$20 fried calamari arrived soggy and half the plate was cold.

Chicken Saltimbocca was small and dry. Again, a $30 plate of JUST chicken should be more than three shriveled cutlets.

Baked Rigatoni was good with nice flavor. Chopped Antipasto Salad was delicious.

Kid's pizza was held up for about 10 minutes into the meal. For a child this is an eternity. Was told the "pizza chef" said it would be another 2 minutes then another 2 minutes. When it arrived it was undercooked, dough was still raw. When we cut it, it looked like raw dough. Blatantly obvious it was forgotten not once but twice and then rushed.

Rough visit all around. The atmosphere is quite nice, but we were never treated as though we were 'family' as the restaurant implies through its attempt to recreate a classic Italian family experience. For the amount of time spent waiting we could have driven further to get a better experience elsewhere, like Capo's or Mezza Luna.

Will never return to Buca di Beppo, especially with those far superior options available.

The food here is fantastic. The antipasti salad is to die for and the entrees are wonderful (and there is plety to take home for the next day). Our server was Bobby and my hat is off to him. He was very attentive, but did not hover over us. Very polite and knowledgable of menu. If you visit the Alpharetta restaurant, ask for Bobby. You will notbe unhappy with his level of service.

We made a reservation at 5:30pm and was there at 5:28pm. They told us we had to wait for 30 minutes. It was Mother’s Day and I was shocked. I made a reservation and they told me all that were waiting made reservations. We left and I won’t be visiting this Buca di Beppo again. Very disappointed in their customer service and we never even sat down!

Not sure if the cook was new, but the food was tasteless on my last visit, it was disappointing. We waited 1.5 hrs to be seated, even with a reservation. Our drinks were good and the waitress was the best experience during our visit.

We had reservation for 2:30pm did not get seated until 3:20pm. Partly my fault by adding 3 to the reservation however only part of the issue. It was Mothers Day and the restaurant did not have enough staff on hand. We were not the only ones with 45 minutes or longer wait after our reservation. When we did get seated we were broken into 2 tables which ended up being okay. However in the tour of the restaurant we walked past at least 8 tables open not cleaned off. The last big group that left prior to being seated was at least 15 minutes prior to us seating. Basically the reservation system was broken. The restaurant was turning walk ins away. Great restaurant however would not recommend the restaurant on a major holiday like Mother’s Day.

The staff were completely unprepared for the reservations on Mother’s Day. People waited up to an hour to be sat for their reservation. There was no plan in place for where to seat all the large parties and it seemed that they were greatly understaffed. They were apparently unable to communicate with OpenTable in order to stop accepting reservations as well, so people were still being able to make reservations on Mother’s Day and then were being turned away when they arrived. We waited 45min to be sat. Our server was mediocre at best, ignoring my mother and father as they repeatedly asked questions. We were told the large served 5, when it was enough for 12, easily, so we over-ordered, spending FAR more then we should have if we were properly informed. The food was ok, not great. For what was to be a special family meal, it was rather disappointing. Not to mention, for a family restaurant, some of the decor (including in the restrooms) is inappropriate for children.

It was my birthday dinner, and Buca is a favorite in Indiana. Compared to the two other locations I’ve been to in Indiana, this Georgia location was worse than I’ve experienced, but still good. The staff wasn’t as friendly or engaged. The food was not as good as normal. However, Buca is always a fun option for friends and birthdays. It was my last night with my roommates before we headed separate ways for the summer.

Buca is a fun place for Italian food. While we were two people the portions are enormous. We brought home enough food for two more meals. I recommend the spaghetti and meatballs and lasagna.

Serve was great.
Ordered Spicy Chicken Rigatoni. Chicken spoiled; sent back
Ordered Fettuccine Alfredo as a replacement. No flavor, gummy, pasty; sent back.
Manager comped, but that was not the point when trying to entertain out-of-town guests.
Antipasto salad was excellent thankfully.
Been going there for years, but I am afraid this was my last visit.

The food is kind of bland besides the Mac and cheese balls which were really good. The service is average. You can get a free colossal brownie sundae when you sign up for the e-club for your birthday, and that was good. The food comes in small & large size since it is family style so the price reflects that but I don’t think it was worth the money.

We went NY Eve. It was obvious the staff and kitchen were struggling. Server was overwhelmed and didn’t have a chance to check on anything. Food came out at different times. My son’s meal came out approximately 20 minutes after everyone else at the table. The 4 tables around us were having the same problems. We have been before to this restaurant on a regular night and not had the same issue. My suggestion would be to avoid them when it is a high volume occasion.

Derrick, our server was excellent and couldn't be nicer! With a reservation for 5, we ended up with a booth. My husband has broad shoulders, I'm 6 months pregnant and my MIL has a bad leg she likes to stretch out. I asked if we could either move to a table and add a chair or add a chair to the end of the booth. The young woman Derrick that came over and explained the extra chair to the booth was a fire hazard, which I expected. Then, she said with all the reservations, they couldn't move tables, but she was so ugly about it! I asked if we took a table for 4 and added a chair then the reservation for 4 could have the booth we had. Again, she rudely said she couldn't move reservations around. I said, "Ok. I'll just be uncomfortable." I didn't mind they couldn't move us, but I would have liked less attitude.

We did a group dinner Xmas party for 14 on a Saturday evening. We were assigned one server. The server never introduced herself and simply began bringing out food. She was overwhelmed simply trying to keep up with drink orders and getting items on the table. The food was good and the occasion was festive so overall the night turned out fine. I think an additional server to bring drinks would have been helpful. Also, training the server on how to bring the items (introduce them to the table) might have been nice.
