Food was average at best. Ordered Chicken and veal parm. The complimentary bread was the best part of the meal. Made 5:30 reservations. Waited at least 15 mins for a waiter after being seated. Then the food was truly average... chicken was not hot at all. Would not return.

Good food. Huge portions. Quick and friendly service. If you want good food without any of the super fancy stuff and fancy price this is it!

We had a great experience at Buca. I was worried about slow or lengthy service to prepare foods but we had no complaints at all. As soon as we sat our waiter greeted us, took our drink orders, explained the menu came back and took our orders. Food delivered quickly and it was excellent. Definitely recommend this restaurant for a group of 6 or more. Plenty of food to go around. Prices were good even for AC. Go for it!

Service was very good and the food is served family style. Small portions are for three people, and large portions are for six. We ordered gellato for dessert and there were six scoops different flavors in six cones. Really good.

To start with .. they had absolutely NO Chianti wine ... server waited over us till we selected a different wine ... food wasn’t like we remembered from the other Bucas we had gone to ... way overpriced ... $19 per glass of wine for mediocre stuff ... very dissatisfied.. would not ever go back

I would recommend bucca as I do like the food. I was just bee did appointed in the service. The waiter never asked if we wanted more drinks we had to call him to our table more then once to get service and when he bright out one appetizer bruschetta it was another ten or fifteen minutes before we got the anti pasta platter. The. Ruchetta was gone by the time tgsy come out. Then another twenty minutes for food. The fettuccine e Alfredo was warm but hot. But to me that had to do with our server.

We were in Atlantic City to see a Fleetwood Mac Concert . We needed reservations for an early dinner ! Availability , not our first choice ! But we were delighted with the food , delicious Antipadta Salad , one of the best we had ever had !
The only downfall was the service , poor seating after we entered restaurant we were swiftly sat by the kitchen door when there was clearly other seating available ! We ask politely to be moved . Waitress did not ask once if our meal was to our liking or if we needed anything ! When she finally brought the check she said I don’t have time to cash this out go to the cashier in back ! I’m too busy !! It was actually comical !

The food was delicious !! The service was disappointing , but would go back for the food for sure !

This was restaurant week in AC. Lunch menu was $15.19, which consisted of Starter, such as salad, entree, and dessert. We had spaghetti and meatballs/ eggplant parm over spaghetti/ Italian cake/ 2 mini cannoli. Portions were sizeable and quite good. Definitely worth the price.

I have eaten at several Buca's and was fairly disappointed in my chicken dish and caesar salad was underwhelming. We went for lunch on restaurant week. I am not sure I would go back at this location.

Our waiter , Tony, was very friendly and efficient. The warm bread was tasty and served with butter. We ordered two Chicken Lemons, two soups, and a large Granny Apple salad. The bean soup was very good. The lemon chicken was one piece with a vegetable. It could have used a little more sauce. The salad had walnuts, green apples, cranberries and a very small amount of Gorgonzola. The dressing was salty. The 9$ Meatball was very disappointing(compared to the one I had in their sister restaurant in Celebration, Florida). The meatball was so compact and tasteless. The texture looked like compacted dog food. It was not light and fluffy. We live 10 miles away and never knew it was there. Sadly for them, there are many better mom and pop Italian restaurants on the Mainland that are better.

We sat with a party of 10. 6 of us got the buffet 4 did not. They wanted to order from the menu. No one asked them their order, or took the tables drink order. 15 minutes into sitting a male server Willie asked if we were needed help. We replied yes. He brought it up to the manger Jessica she then "asked" a female server (name unknow) to tend to us. She told the manager no. It was about 6 minutes kater Willie himself came to wait on us. Those not getting the buffet decided not to order. Those eating asked for the bill and we paid even though we felt as though we didn't get our monies worth and we left.

We came to this resaurant for my birthday dinner. The only good thing was the server Tony who was amazing. We tried to order wine keonti (sorry if i spelled it wrong) and they had none. They we tried to order a pitcher of beer and also no tap beers. Tony our server was amazing. A female manager came over after we were done and was no help. I would not consider eating there again.

We had an excellent meal at a great value. There was enough food to take some home to enjoy later. Our server, Jim, was terrific and very attentive to the table without being annoying. ( We’ve had him on a prior visit and were glad to get him again)
Wish we had room for dessert because their tiramisu is terrific.
If the portions were small and servers wore tuxedos, you would think you were in a fine dining restaurant.

My wife and I went to Buca Di Beppo for lunch. Our favorite meals are the Antipasto Salad and Fried Mozzarella and these items were not listed on the lunch menu. Our waiter Jimmy listened to what we wanted and pulled the right strings and was able to serve us what we asked for. We love this restaurant and come often. They recently changed their hours so we had to adjust our plans. We were glad to go and enjoyed our meals.

service was SOOO slow. Everything took double the amount of time it should from the entry to the check. Food was very good but took more than an hour to receive. We sat at 7:30 and food came at 8:45. Table of 7, restaurant was only 1/2 full. As always at Buca, the serving for 3 must be for 3 giants so we had tons of leftovers to take home.
