Excellent food. Service was slow but was not the fault of the server. He was given way too many large party tables to be able to service everyone efficiently. But he tried. We will be back.

The food was delicious but the portions have become smaller through the years. It was a very busy night and we didn’t have to wait as long as they said. The manager and staff did the best to get us at a table.

Valentines. 7:45 reservation, seated at 8:50. The waiters would not look at us. Had to wait another 15 minutes and finally flagged down waiter.Bar was overwhelmed, Unbussed tables, obviously understaffed. Poor planning for Valentines Day. Highly disappointing. Never going back.

They jammed all ten of us in a very tight table. Passing the food around was uncomfortable. I had requested the Pope’s room when I booked the reservation at Open Table which was ignored. When I mentioned that I was told I needed to call as well. In other words they don’t bother to consider requests through Open Table. My next birthday will be elsewhere.

We did booking for 6:30pm, arrived there on time and it took them 20 minutes later to seat them and once we sat down; we ordered right away. Our food was served at 7:30pm -one hour later than what we booked our reservation- our two kids were starving hungry by the time they served our food! No more going to this restaurant. Their service is getting worse!!!!

I have eaten here before and loved it, so was a bit disappointed with my recent experience. The mixed greens salad was mostly iceberg lettuce and did not seem very fresh. The description states that it has green and black olives, but there were no green olives and we had to search for the few black ones that were present. The salad was pale and wilted.

Regarding our main dish, the baked ziti, the flavor was good but not great. We ordered a serving for 3 people even though there were 5 of us. We thought we'd fill up on salad and not have enough room. We did not finish the salad and there was also enough ziti leftover for two more servings - but no one wanted to take the leftovers home.

The spinach and artichoke dip was very good - a tease which made us believe that everything coming after it would be as well.

I had a coupon for $20 off a $40 purchase. Our purchase was $70 before the coupon. I can only say that I would have been very frustrated if I had paid full price for such average quality food.

Our server, Ayesha, was very nice and attentive. She gets a 5/5.

What was supposed to be NYE Dinner with family turned out to be no dinner at all. Made a reservation for 7:30pm. We arrived at 7:15pm and did not get seated until 7:45pm. Once seated we waited 15 minutes when a young lady stopped off with a plate of bread and after 10 more minutes a young man who said they were not our server to bring us water. My husband went to get the Manager and he assured us that our server would be by. After not seeing a server I flagged the manager down and asked if he could at least get us started with bar drinks. He seemed upset about it but said he would. The Manager took our drink orders and walked away, never coming back with drinks. He did come by one more time to let us know that our server would be by but still no drinks in hand. I asked the Manager if they were short staffed and he replied that they had a few staff members that never showed up for work. My initial thought was why did they not prepare being it was NYE and why would they have accepted all the reservations they did. After the excuse from the Manager we decided to leave the restaurant at approximately 8:30pm. What a waste of time.

Going to Buca on Christmas Day is our family tradition. This was our 9th year there. The food is usually good-this year was also good and predictable. We love the antipasti. Plus we took home alot of left overs. The service this year left something to be desired. I know it's a holiday but these people signed up for this and they should realize that if they just put a smile on their face, they might just get a better tip! The service was slow (not necessarily the servers fault but most likely the kitchen) but our server was not very friendly and frankly looked like she was miserable. We can recount past Christmas dinners where we've had GREAT servers and have tipped accordingly. Wish this year had been the same.

I’m sorry but the food was gross and the service was really bad. We had to send back the calamari, it was squishy and swimming in oil. The food all tasted like it can out of a can. The waiter seemed out of it. Two thumbs down.

The food was not tasty. Chicken was over cooked. The pasta had no flavor. The server never refilled our drinks. Our appetizer came out AFTER we got out entrees. The salad was not crisp the dressing was flavorless. This used to be a “go-to” restaurant for my family and I. I don’t think we will be going back there.

We arrived at 5;30 with our reservation. At 6:30 we were still waiting for our food. When the food began to be served, it came out one dish at a time with 10 minutes between plate. The couple we were with finished their pizza before my daughters and my eggplant parm was delivered. Garlic bread arrived last after most everything else was eaten. Pizza was so greasy you could not pick it up, you had to slide it onto a plate, sip up the extra grease with napkins and cut it up with a knife and fork.

We will not be returning.

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.
