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.

If food were not rushed and brought to the table lukewarm, we would have thoroughly enjoyed.

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

The Alfredo was great as usual. The grilled chicken wasn’t done. Otherwise the atmosphere, music , and ambiance was great. The waiter, not very friendly or attentive. Another waiter offered to refill my drink, and was very polite and friendly.

We had a good meal. There was no wait time for a seat, but the service was slow and not overly friendly. When our waiter brought the check he announced the total to the table, I felt that was inappropriate. The ambiance was nice and the location was convenient.

Great place to eat for good quality food especially for sharing. Small portion would easily feed 3 or 4 people. Service was very good. I would definitely try this place.

Pretty much what you’d expect at a casino based restaurant. Food was very average; drinks even less so. Service was fine, but again nothing exceptional. We chose the restaurant for convenience, but would choose another one if we had a do over.

The food was OK. We ordered a caprese salad and the tomatoes were horrible. The meatballs got mixed reviews from our party of 7 with the general consensus that they were very salty but OK. Chicken saltimbocca and the pizza were both fantastic.

Food was fair, noisy. Not at all like the other Buca we visited several years ago, no Pope decorations and large round tables. Atmosphere was lacking.

Had an Open Table reservation for 7:00, as did many others, and they were not able to seat us until closer to 7:30. The hostess and wait staff struggled to seat everyone, but our group and others were frustrated with the long wait despite having reservations. The food quality is fair at best, I was not impressed and think that Carmine's is far superior. The service was slow, although the servers were very nice and did what they could given the crowd. The question I have, is it was a Wednesday night during the summer, you know that is busy season, how are you not prepared? Anyway would not go back and would not recommend

I visit A.C. several times a year & almost always visit this restaurants. Food is good and usually service is too. This time service lacked as it took appx. 30 mins for our drinks even after we were served our salad and bread. Waitress seemed overwhelmed and not into her job. We were celebrating my moms birthday and this left a negative taste on our dining experience.

The food was cold the server was so rough and just threw the straws at my grandkids and if we asked for a refill of soda she made a face. So please do not ever go there because I told the manager and she said she was going to give me $25.00 comp but never did.

Food was really subpar. Pasta was 98% noodles and 2% shrimp and other stuff. We ended up leaving pounds of pasta uneaten. Service was sparse.

The food and service were outstanding. We had a reservation for 7 they had the table ready for us when we got there. Our waiter was outstanding had 2 small children that he paid special attention to. He also made sure that we didn't over order since it is family style.
Had a really great time.

Should have known better than going here when we walked into Bally's and saw two strung out people laying in hallway off boardwalk entrance. Should have thought better of it by the smell that permeated from Ballys and how filthy the rugs were. Definitely realized it was a bad idea when we sat down and were given glasses of water that had brown substances on inside of glasses....dirty silverware wrapped in napkins and a table top that felt like someone poured maple syrup on it. As for the food, I cannot comment as we left without ordering. Don't waste your time going anywhere near that building let alone restaurants inside.
