We had a delicious Restaurant Week lunch. Jason , our waiter was friendly and professional. After lunch, he gave us a tour of the different rooms at the restaurant. We will definitely be going there again.

Had to wait nearly an hour for a reservation while those without a reservation were seated ahead of us. Waitress didn’t even offer to take a drink order - was very rushed and food was mediocre. Would not return.

After dining in both NYC and DC we were severely disappointed. The apps had to be sent back because they were undercooked. The sauce was watery and had no taste. The waitress didn't bring our drinks until after the apps came out for a second time. The waiter for the table next to us cleaned the table with pure alcohol and walked away (I understand about the coronavirus) and didn't bother to dry the table off so the smell of alcohol was overwhelming. When we finally got the attention of someone to dry it off it was 5 minutes later-it was hard to eat with the smell. The restaurant was not crowded at all but the waitress was completely inattentive and not interested. We did say something about this and more when we were leaving and the cashier was equally uninterested.

Buca never disappoints! They feed you like your great grandmother did all those years ago. Sooo much food! Be sure to go hungry! All their dishes are really good. We went for restaurant week and came away with enough food for another meal.

The food was such a great value for what we received. The chicken parm was delicious and the salad was incredible! However, the chicken Marsala was bland and our service was a little slow. Our waiter did not check in on us much, or even offer to refill our water until we requested so. All in all, it was a fun and enjoyable dinner.

Don't bother if you know Italian food. YUK ! Restaurant was dirty and dingy. The service was Creepy. The salad was the best part of the meal. Calamari was Mushy and not crisp. The pasta was horrible. Overdone, chicken was obviously frozen, The sauce was fake and not a real cream sauce. Do yourself a favor and go to carmine's !!!

The food and service is normally good but the waitress we had this time was not that great. She only showed her face 3 times during our whole visit, she took our orders, brought our food and then the bill. We couldn't even get refills for our drinks.

We arrived on time for our 6:30 dinner reservation, and were seated right away by the manager Kathleen, who was friendly and welcoming. Sue was our server. She did an outstanding, professional job. Our party of 5 ordered the mini meatballs, and the fried trio appetizer (shrimp, calamari and mozzarella triangles) to start. Loved the chunky sauce that came with the meatballs, and the spicy shrimp was a favorite! We then had the Gorgonzola salad. So good! And for the main course we had the eggplant parm, and the chicken marsala, with a side of fresh string beans. Everything was delicious. I would order these items again. We topped it off with the cheesecake with a strawberry sauce. The cheesecake was light and fluffy, and not too sweet. Needless to say we had left-overs, which were packed up very nicely in a big shopping bag. The manager Kathleen came over to make sure we were happy with everything. I was glad to tell her that we will return for sure!

We went to dinner with friends and the food was fine, nothing special. We waited a lot time for everything, menus, wine, food, etc.... We were a group of 4 and the waiter seemed to cater to the large groups. My dinner came out cold and ice cream was melted. It took over 2 hours to eat. I won’t go back plus I had to pay $25 for parking and they wouldn’t reduce my rate even though I spend over $75. Disappointing 😕

Went to dinner with hubby and 11 year old daughter during our stay in Atlantic City for a cheer comp. The service was great and the food was OUTSTANDING. I didn’t have high expectations as I know it’s a chain restaurant but it sure didn’t feel like it. We got the pasta with meat sauce and chicken Parmesan. Seriously one of the best Italian meals I have had in a long time. I’m just sad there aren’t any in Massachusetts!

Cannot go wrong. Very good food at a reasonable price. Our waitress Chrissy is our go to person there. She always attend to are needs she is a great person all around. All the staff always greets us very politely. For some reason our appetizer ticket did not get processed so they gave it to us for free. The nice lady at checkout told us we had $100 celebration reward so she make sure we used it all and gave us stuff to take with us. Out of all the years I’ve been going there I’ve only had one bad meal and they corrected that right away. This is one of our favorite restaurants. Thank you to all the staff for another nice evening.

Very disappointed this time with the food. We ordered pretty much the same things but not as good as before. First the fried calamari looked as if it were picked over, crumbly at bottom & not as large or as crispy. We ordered the apple gorgonzola salad and to me there was not as much as the last time. BUT the big thing was the way they made it this time... very little gorgonzola big slices of apple just a few cranberry and nuts . I thought there were more things in this salad the last time. And last time it had crispy lettuce when this time it was a bit wilted. The chicken parm was again not as good as last time and 2 pieces were a bit on the small side. Then the Fettuccini Alfredo was dry and had to ask for more sauce. It was still not creamy and velvety and had some seasoning that set the whole dish off. The cannoli was good but was more whipped creamy than the Italian filling we would expect from an Italian restaurant. Sorry Buca ...you are not my fav restaurant any more.

The ambiance was great. The service was terrific. The food on the other hand tasted I want to say unauthentic. We always frequent Carmines in Atlantic City and decided to give Buca Di Beppo a try. It is nothing like Carmines food wise. Food seemed bland and maybe comparable to say the Olive Garden.

There was no waiting for our table . The server was quick
And the food out was quick . And this was my second time here . Remember people it’s family style ordering . So a small can do like 3 people for a good appetite to eat and large 5 people with big appetite. And the bread was k I think they should just up charge for garlic bread ... and the noise was as it was a Saturday and place was busy down the hall
For a event . And overall I would go again and order the big meatballs next time
