Great! Did take 20 min though for our drink orders to be taken
I have visited this location on 2 other occasions and the food and service was great! I made reservations with some friends and their kids and it was the worst experience ever! Our reservation was for 5:30 and we were promptly seated. We put in our entire order including drinks, appetizers, and main course at 5:45. At 6pm finally got our drinks, 6:20 still no appetizers which were just garlic cheese bread 2 orders. 6:30 we inquired with the waiter who would check and then didn’t check back, another server must have been able to tell the kids were starving and we were frustrated. She went to check and came back with one order, the other order somehow didn’t get put in. At this time it was 6:45 an hour since we put in pur entire order then to find out the food order didn’t get put in either. Our food finally came to the table st 7:15 almost 2 hours after being seated. We were compensated on our appetizers only. The food was delicious but not worth the 2 hour wait and we definitely won’t be coming back and it was the first and last time our friends will ever return. To top it off one of the servers opened the emergency exit and the alarm screamed for about 5-7min before someone came with a key to turn it off.
The food was excellent, but the service was just Okay. Forgot stuff more than once.
The food is okay but the service is horrendous. Our server seemed completely aloof and had no idea what was going on. It took 15 minutes to get drinks and when we finally ordered, we asked her questions about the menu and it's like she's never tasted anything before, she had no idea what to recommend or even what the different sauces had in them. Everything we asked for, she forgot to bring us. Seemed like every single table, other than us, was celebrating a birthday, so we heard all of the servers singing LOUDLY all around us every 5 minutes which was pretty annoying after a while. I guess it's the place to go for your birthday.... but not for good service, good food or being able to hear to have a conversation at your table.
We hadn’t been to Buca in many years and decided to cash in some gift cards we had. We brought our kids and we all had a fun time. Our food was all very good and the gigantic brownie Sundae is a must for the kids. I actually don’t remember the food being as good as it was- We’d definitely go back.
We went to Buca for my daughter’s 21st birthday and could not have asked for more. Excellent food and amazing staff!!
The food was great, the service was excellent. We love the red sangria.
Buca can handle a holiday crowd! We were there for Valentine’s Day, and the staff was firing on all cylinders. Good job!
Our server had little patience with us when we weren't immediately ready with drink order... He came back about 10 minutes later... This was the bar area... Ask to be seated in the main dining room
Our server was terrible. It look 30 minutes to just get water and our drinks. It didn’t appear busy, but the meal was quite messed up with poor timing.
The food is always good. The service, well it’s hit or miss. We had a very nice waiter that just didn’t pay attention to us. He had to be asked to refill water, we had to ask for bread and I had to go find the vinegar and oil for the table. Worst service I’ve ever had. Good thing the food is delicious.
Family Christmas Day lunch at Buca's has become our family tradition.
Great comfort food and excellent service! Buca di Beppo is a Burnsville treasure.
Everything was fine but our server seemed like she could not have cared less. Very phone and insincere. Also, she was lazy in her humor and overall effort. Not a mean spirited server but very fake.
Date night with Wife! So nice to go somewhere everyone is enjoying themselves - without the kids.
Worst meal ever! Salad was soggy & drenched in dressing and had more tomatoes & onions than lettuce; lasagna was bland & flavorless ; tiramisu was a f4ozen block - we sent it back! The bar tender either suffusing the internet or on social media the 3ntire time we were there. We should have known something was going on when there were only 10 cars in the parking lot of a Friday night at 7:30 - totally disappointing!!
The Turkey dinner was great!
The wait staff did a terrific job and checked back frequently.
It was a real time saver in not having to prepare and cleanup a holiday meal.
always great food here ... however, during latest visit on 11/18 there were problems processing the birthday coupon ... it took 20 minutes to figure it out
Everything was great this time! We had not been there in months and we used to go all the time. We had had a few bad experiences and decided we were ready to give it another try.
Bread — not good.
Sausage & Peppers — not at all like the photo on the web site. Unlike the photo we got very little peppers. The sausage was quite ordinary for that dish.
Chicken — ok.
Garlic mashed potatoes — good.
Odd — no pasta available as a side dish.
Coffee — EXCELLENT!
Service — really good.
We had a reservation for 7PM and actually checked in a little early. We were not seated at a table until 7:20. When we were finally seated there were several open tables that had not been cleared even though there were several people waiting for tables and being told it was a 30 minute wait. It was obvious they were very short staffed. Several tables remained dirty as we sat there. Once seated we did get our drinks and food fast.
Overall very good. Buca has been consistently good over the years. There had been times when service was lacking but food has always been good.
I appreciate that they ditched the Malt-shop-bee-bop music. None is better than that especially for an Italian specialty restaurant.
They recently revamped their menu and we tried the Shrimp Parmigiana...was excellent. But it does not come with spaghetti; OK...no big deal so we ordered a side of Spaghetti. Was told they took that off the menu! Huh? Side orders of pasta off the menu in an Italian Restaurant? Taking string beans or brussel sprouts off the menu I can agree with. But a staple like spaghetti? Makes no sense. So we ordered a kids size portion and that worked out OK. That was at the suggestion of the waiter so I think he had received coaching from management for instances like this.
The chicken marsala was fantastic! The waiter was wonderful in that he recommended family portion as a better value when two people ordered the same thing. It was much appreciated
Buca is our go-to for southern Italian food. The incentive coupons make it an excellent value. I was glad that they nixed the malt-shop music even though it was a bit noisy when we were there.
Food took a longer than anticipated time to arrive but it was good.
Seated in loud area, was hard to talk
Food was good, seamed like the staff was short handed!
Service was marginal. Wine is significantly overpriced. Shrimp Pasta was absolutely tasteless.
Excellent service from a great waitress. A very pleasant experience.
Great food, as always!
Food was excellent, a short but nice wine list, and great service. We have eaten at other Buccas, including a few family get togethers, and we will return again soon.
Very poor service and food wasn't good. The bartender was are waiter. He was too busy. We use to enjoy the experience of eating here but that has changed.
The service has gone down hill lately. I thought it was going to go better this time. They actually checked me in under my reservation which many times they have not but that was the only thing that went right. (except the fact that the food is always good) They didn't bring us any bread and our main food arrived before the salad. We had to ask for bread and then they didn't give us oil for our bread. They forgot to bring my daughters food and we had to ask them for her food. Then they didn't apply my coupon and I had to mention that to them. I will definately be taking a break from Buca for a while.
Horrible service. Never brought us dinner plates with our meal. Was forced to eat on small appetizer plates. Waiter Disappeared forever. Never got refills on water. Had to ask another waiter for box and Bill. It was a really weird experience
We celebrated my birthday with some family and Matt, our server was great even though he was managing a number of tables. My brother-in-law commented that is was the best food he'd had at a Buca's. We left feeling very satisfied!!
We had a lovely experience at Buccas ! Our waiter was attentive without being smothering, the food was delicious and abundant...we actually had to take most of the dessert home😃. It is easy, good food, friendly staff. We had a great time.
We love coming to this Bucca. Very friendly and great food!
The portion sizes are huge even the small. The manicotti was very good. The sausage ziti was enjoyable and a little spicy but the portion was huge.
Food was great. My only complaint would be they didn't have fresh Parmesan cheese for the pasta.. only the cheap grated stuff. Otherwise good food and service. The decor could definitely use an upgrade.
I chose Buca to enjoy a Valentines meal with my wife and two daughters. This ended up being a stressful event because we saw many customers come and go and get serviced by our waitress before us. It also took over an hour to get our food while other tables obtained speedy service. Once we got our food everything was good, but at this point I'm not sure we will go back to Buca again because it wasn't fun. Kind of ruined our Valentines night out. Service used to be good at Buca. We got one free dessert, but quite honestly a manager should have visited us and comped the entire dinner based on the disappointing service.
Food. Service. Value. All excellent. But something needs to be done with the new music selections. Sock-hop-malt-shop oldies? Really bad. Whats up with that? Get back to Lou Monte and Dean Martin please.
