Buca di Beppo - Broomfield Ratings and Reviews
I have been here before, many times, and have received decent 3 star or better food/service. This time however, was different. First, the food. The Caesar salad was old and tasteless, with large pieces of brown rotting romaine inside. The Chicken Saltimbocca was tough and overcooked. They were out of spaghetti on the side, so they offered penne. What Italian place runs out of spaghetti? Service was OK. The AC was on full blast and it was super cold, so no fun there. $50-ish dollars for a bad meal without drinks makes me never want to come back again.
We had to flag down a manager to get a server to take our order. Once we ordered , the service was extremely slow and they forgot some of our drinks. Once we inquired about our drinks, the manager was rude and said that we had received them all and to check in front of us. We asked for more bread and were told serval times that it was coming which it never did. We will not dine here again.
Table sizes too small to serve family style. We were constantly trying to find enough space and bumping elbows to pass food served in very heavy dishes -- and we ordered small dishes. Can't imagine ordering large sizes. Tongs used were too stiff to use for serving salad and pasta. Food barely adequate, but dessert good. Server charged with too many other tables and never filled beverage glasses throughout meal.
After taking the family to another Italian-type restaurant for a previous graduation party, we decided to try Buca Di Beppo to help foster interaction between everyone, instead of the typical meal spent with most everyone looking at their phones. Wow! Not only was there constant interaction between everyone, but the food was absolutely delicious! The amazing decor, the cozy atmosphere, & the excitement generated by the authentic quality of the food served family-style with exceptional service, kept everyone engaged with real eye-contact and lots of smiles. Many thanks to Buca Di Beppo & our server Daniel, who were very accommodating, friendly & professional. You all helped make our graduation celebration enjoyable & memorable by bringing us closer together as family & friends :)
We were a very large party (14), consisting of young adults, parents and grandparents. Despite having a reservation, we waited over an hour to be seated. About 20 minutes into our wait, we were told that the party at our table had paid, but were not leaving the table. We waited and waited and waited, and fortunately the elderly persons in our party were able to stand for that long. I was furious, because, even after the preceding party departed, our table sat un-cleared and un-set for another 20 minutes.
Once we sat down and got menus, the waiter took great care of our table, bringing drinks, answering questions about the menu, taking our food order, and bringing the dishes out as soon as they came up. What started out as a DISASTER ended with happy, full-bellied diners. Buca di Beppo does family style Italian just right, and, with the exception of the Veal Saltimboca, which was dry and greasy and meagerly portioned, everything we ordered was well prepared from high quality ingredients, and tasted delicious. I nevertheless would have difficulty recommending the restaurant to others because the failure to seat our party--or at least provide something to eat and/or drink during the hour plus wait. The manager did ultimately deduct $40 from our check, but for a dinner party of 14, this was small change.
Disappointed. I've been to the Honolulu and Aspen Grove locations and really liked it. This time, the pasta was overcooked. Ordered a seafood linguine and it was tasteless. The chicken saltimbocca chicken was tough. The dessert was the brownie with 6 scoops of ice cream which was to be served in a large martini shaped glass. They were out of the glass and plated instead. The ice cream was so melted it was like soup within minutes. Terrible. Never again.
I went to Buca di Beppo for a nice Italian meal on a Sunday evening. I love the decor and ambiance and the employees are (usually) friendly. The food, except for the appetizer, was excellent. We ordered the small mussels bianca but it was overly salty and had very little flavor otherwise. I've had the mussels at Buca before, they're always delicious, but this was the first time they've been bad. Other than that though, the baked rigatoni and caesar salad were excellent!
Our server was attentive, but he struggled with balancing multiple tables in two different sections, so after we were initially seated, his efficiency wasn't the greatest (though he was VERY friendly). We had two main problems, first, our appetizer was delivered about twoish minutes before our entree, it's hard to eat both at the same time. Also, we needed dinner plates, but he was rushing in and out of the section so much that we couldn't get his attention. Finally, when he was in the little server room entering something on the computer, I walked over and asked for more water and dinner plates, but that was after having to wait several minutes for him to slow down enough to stop. Of course, that meant our entree was less than warm when we started eating, though it gave us time to (attempt) to eat the salty mussels. My only other concern was just before the section started filling up, our server was rushing around setting the table by slamming salad plates on top of dinner plates, he was trying to be efficient, but it was really loud - I'm honestly surprised none of the dishes broke!
Overall, the meal was fine, but I recommend trying to sit in a section with a more experienced server.
6 of us were there for a birthday lunch and it was most enjoyable. We even had a birthday cake which was was surprisingly very good. Our waiter, John, was excellent. The only negative was the notice we received from Open Table that we had not shown up for our reservation. They evidently cleared that up with Buca. All in all a very good experience.
I wish BEFORE they seated us and took our order, they would have told us the kitchen was backed up. We had 2 very hungry 6-year olds and they explained the kitchen was backed up because of a 60-person party and a 90-person to go order. It took forever to just get bread and salads. Then when we were still eating the salads all the food came. The manager did voluntarily comp the bread and salad which was nice. We all left full but we were there for 2 hours, which was unplanned because of the 2 children we had.
I made our reservation for my mom's birthday dinner a month in advance so I expected a better location for our large party. After walking us through their (not dirty, but not particularly clean either) kitchen which was so odd, they seated us at a table where we were jammed into the back corner of a very small room right next to the kitchen. It must have been 85 degrees in that room. It was so hot and unpleasant! We definitely won't be back. Im so disappointed as this was a special gathering with family we don't see very often.
Probably among the top 5 worst dining experiences. We used to enjoy their restaurants downtown Denver and Aspen but both restaurants closed. We drove 60 miles round trip on our anniversary to have an early dinner. We arrived at 3:30 and still did not have our appetizer at 4:15. Our enter was dry and over cooked. The only time we saw our waiter was when he brought the check. He did not even ask if we wanted dessert. We couldn't get out fast enough and we will not return.
Nice place. Food was good. Value, compared to classical Italian restaurants, was okay. Salad was excellent. Nothing special about sauces or entrée items, but the food was good and the family enjoyed. I would go back, but be more careful with the orders as the portions are huge.
Had a great time with friends in the fun environment , but the pasta was underwhelming. It seemed like they had really skimped on the sauce and both the alfredo and the baked ziti were kind of bland. I was glad we'd ordered an appetizer because I barely touched the actual dinner. Not super for how expensive it was.
We had some shopping to do close by, so we decided to have lunch at the Buca di Beppo in Broomfield. As we walked into the dining area we were immediately struck by a thick musty smell that, in the end, detracted from our overall dining experience. We ordered off of the limited lunch menu: my wife had the Chicken Parmigiana, I had the Baked Rigatoni, and we both ordered a side salad. The food was okay, but it wasn't good enough to make us want to go back. We've eaten at two other Buca di Beppo locations, and this was the first time that we were less than thrilled with the experience.
We've taken our family here on numerous occasions because we can usually get in and they tend to be able to handle larger groups on short notice. The service and food quality seems to get a little worse with each visit. Our latest experience was bad. Bad service and poor food quality. Not sure that we'll be back.
Went out for a 1 person Christmas Dinner wanted to get out of Denver for a bit. Love Italian food, wanted to see if it was like the Buca's in Minneapolis. Food was definietly plentiful. The ONLY bad part was it was a bit messy with napkins on the floor, and a couple of used wine glasses on the ledge near my table. The waiter had great energy and the price was just right. Just need to keep it clean that's my only complaint. But definitely will be back when i want to get full on authentic Italian food
Place is like a labyrinth - lots of nooks and crannies. Thousands of pictures/photographs/signs, but was offended by some of the photographs. Some I would never even hang in my house, much less in a restaurant. Half nude women lounging on rocks and a nude couple with the male on top of the female are not what I expect to see in a restaurant, much less in a family style restaurant. Also two elephants with one elephant's trunk up the rear of the other elephant are not even funny to me and not something I want to see.
Food was pretty lackluster too. Salad was very plain - ingredients were fresh, but even a few croutons would have added to the lettuce, a few tomatoes, onions and olives. Bread was plain, ordered with mozzarella. Took some bread, slapped a piece of mozzarella on top and slightly melted it. Entree was good - chicken piccata. However, won't go there again.
A truly awful experience on December 10. An hour after ordering we were told food was delayed as the kitchen was backed up - and this is with the restaurant about half full! When food was finally received - to go as we had someplace else to be - the veal was burned and the prosciutto was closer to jerky. Avoid if possible.
Our server was rude and food was expensive. ($40 for a pound of pasta with some chicken and alfredo sauce, $45 for another pound of pasta with a spicy shrimp sauce, and $25 for a bowl of lettuce with some veggies).
A fun spot to take our family over Thanksgiving weekend to take a break from all the cooking though.
