Buca di Beppo - Arrowhead Ratings and Reviews
I see that this was already addressed in another comment when you look up Buca di Beppo in reviews. The bathrooms! they really do need to be remodeled their kind of gross and it's unexpected. Kind of takes the "I feel special about going here" and flushes it. Pun intended.
Was a little sad that we made reservations on Open table, showed up 15 minutes early and was seated 45 min late. So needless to say with smaller children , standing for an hour was challenging. Server was great and attentive. I have always ordered the same dish every time I go for my self, decided to get the large this time even though it was nearly $40 for my dish. Much less favor than my usual. The amount of sea food I had in my large dish was the same as the smaller dish, just more linguine. My wife's dish was great of course a smaller portion. Kids dishes well were kids dishes, the norm. All in all the overall wasn't too bad just sad that dinner for 2 adults , 2 kids an hour of waiting even with reservations, and finishing with $136 bill. I don't think I will be back anytime soon. But I will be back to try again.
The food is good but the place is ran poorly. We made an early dinner reservation and it still took them an hour to seat us. We came with 2 small children so waiting an hour to sit and then for food didn't go over well. The whole night out was ruined for us dealing with a hungry cranky kid. The server didnt seem to know the menu. Then I heard her complaining to another table that the hostess just wasnt seating empty tables right away. So apparently a reservation doesn't mean anything to this restaurant. I might go back for take out but I don't think I would go back to eat.
Got sat in the kitchen at a table alone with poor service after a reservation. The staff was bad mouthing the customers every time they came to collect plates or put orders in. The dishes were stacked and overwhelming. It was hot and smelled horrible we waited well over an hr to get food with three kids under 10 and our son didn’t have a drink for 30 minutes. They were out of the drink our kids originally ordered. It was hurst horrible from start to finish we kept trying to be positive but it was genuinely miserable.
Made our reservation through Open Table and was seated right on time, even though they were very crowded when we arrived. So happy we made a reservation. Portions are large, served to share. So we ordered one mozzarella caprese and the chicken cabanera, both were very good. If you’re looking for casual dining and good Italian food this is your place.
We have enjoyed dining there previously and took family for a special evening to celebrate Christmas with them. Our hostess was sweet but our waitress was lacking in any personality an was simply not engaging. Our bill came out to around $115 for 3 small pasta dishes, 1 glass of house wine, breadsticks and 4 iced teas. We have loved the flavor before but this night was very lacking. Didnt realize it but our coupon was not applied to the bill that we had. Ugh. Didnt bother going back in to address, because we were over the experience.
No one wanted to take leftovers home... she boxed them, but we could have done without. I then get home to another $15 off coupon in my email if i order 2 pasta dishes.. :(
Overall disappointed that this was their first experience there and they don't want to go back.
This is one of the better Buca locations. Food portions are large and the value is pretty reasonable. Although some items, like the meatballs, are completely overpriced and not that good , so a little bit of a disappointment. I've been here a few times now and the service has been both good and bad. They tend to get busy with large parties and forget about the smaller tables. This has always been a problem with this chain. Overall we still like the food and will continue to go there.
Wow, extremely expensive for what you get. Chicken Limone was good but stale presentation on the plate; the Fettuccine Supremo was dry and sticky. Service and atmosphere was excellent, but could not make up for the quality of food. Would not recommend or go back.
It's been awhile since I have been to this restaurant, but yea, won't be coming back. The food was below subpar. First off, the bread was not cooked all the way. I look good, but in the center was nothing but dough. My husband had the margarita pizza, it was so bland, no flavor. I had the shrimp parting, and the noodles were sitting on my bowl with massive water. The shrimp was small and hardly any, probably precooked shrimp because they were so small. The spinach and cherry tomatoes were so soggy. I mean it looked good, but it tasted like was eating instant noodles, so bland, over cooked and just soggy. I don't know what happen to them, because years ago it used to be good and with big portions. But, they cut down on quality, which is a big shame for the price you pay. I will look for another Italian restaurant.
Was disappointed in the food we ordered. Veal Marsala was soggy and tasteless for the most part. The brussels sprouts side dish was nice with the prociuttto (sp) . There were four of us sharing the large portion of veal. It was adequate except it did not come with a side dish so in addition to the brussels sprouts we order a side of fettucini alfredo. Very bland. This restaurant did have a lot of Italian memorabilia to look at but other than that I don't think I would put this on my list to visit again.
Buca is a standard for family style large portions dinners. Today we decided to come for their lunch fare. I got the feeling this is the off shift and not very accomplished. We ordered the apple salad with grilled chicken. To my disappointment, the chicken is cold and from the dryness was cooked sometime in the previous few days. The salad dressing was good and the bread was fresh. The ambiance was disturbed by the TV in the bar playing an episode of Cops. It is difficult to enjoy a quiet lunch with sirens continually blaring from the TV. Even so, it is still a great value and a decent meal.
We love Buca Di Beppo normally . Their food is always amazing and we love the fun atmosphere. Our waiter Garrett was phenomenal. He treated us like family he had invited into his home for a meal. Honestly, he could teach most other waiters we have ever had a thing or two.
Thank you for making my Mother's Day fun! Made a reservation for 7 people and even though there was a party for 25 ahead of us...we were seated pretty close to the time we wanted.
The only downside was there was no pizza when it came time for us to order, so some people in our party had to put their heads together to figure out what else they would like to eat. Other than that, the food was outstanding as usual. My husband and I ordered the Chicken Marsala and the roasted garlic mashed potatoes. Wow! SO good!
Can't speak for the others, but my husband and I will definitely return.
For the fist time in may visits to Buca, I was very disappointed. Understanding it was Mother's Day, so it was busier than normal, there were still issues I believe were avoidable. Multiple staff members were standing around the check in area, just goofing off while people lined up waiting for seating. We had a reservation but waited an additional 15-20 minutes as people poured out of the restaurant and no one was being taken back to be seated. Another group of four that checked in after us and had a later reservation time were seated before us. Once we were seated we observed many open tables, making us wonder why the long wait. They should have been staffed appropriately and should have managers on duty that make sure the staff is working as expected and putting the customer first.
