Our table was ready on time. Our server was friendly and efficient. The food was very good. We had a spot where we could hear one and other talk which was great as we were siblings that had not seen each other for over a month and wanted to spend time together and catch up. The sangria drinks were great.

I made an online reservation and was seated in the bar area for people who didn’t have a reservation. I was extremely disappointed. It was the first time that my girlfriend had ever been to Buca’s. The service in the bar area sucked. My girlfriend was shocked that I even tipped the waiter. He brought the check and never did ask if we wanted dessert. I would say if they were busy that it might have matter however this was at 5pm on a Friday with an almost empty restaurant. After bringing the food, we didn’t see him again until he brought the check. No one checked on us to see how we were enjoying the meal. It is a shame because I have been to plenty of different Buca’s and this one is the worst one ever. I will not be back to this one

This restaurant had the best customer service, friendly on-time server, food came out quickly, and everything was great. This was so important since this was my daughter's 13th birthday dinner and we needed to get in and out to the next activity. Thanks again!!

Our experience at this location has always been outstanding. The staff is very friendly. We had asked for a dish that Buca Di Beppo no longer carries on their menu. It was offered 2yrs ago for a limited time only. The dish is called "chicken inferno'. When we asked for it our server told us its no longer available but he went and spoke to the chefs. Luckily the chef knew the recipe and agreed to make it for us. I wish they would keep this dish permanently on the menu. The small plate comes with 3 pieces of chicken with fire-roasted tomatoes, pepperoncini peppers, red and
green bell peppers, yellow onions and spicy rosa sauce. This has been our fav so far, it was prepared freshly and tasted just as good as it looked.

Re visited after a 10 year absence and will never return. This establishment at the bottom line is over priced and the food was not acceptable. To the point, I ordered Chicken Marsala that tasted like Chinese Orange Chicken. The chicken itself was lightly battered and smothered with a thick brown sauce overly blended with a sugary substance which certainly was not a sweet Marsala wine or sherry. I advised the server of my displeasure and it was like talking to the wall.
This restaurant prides itself on affordable family style service and portions. When you consider the cost of adding vegetables and a starch to the entrée the pricing moves into a higher category and the quality remains the same. You will well be advised to chose another restaurant for a decent meal.

We chose Buca for a last family dinner before my son and his family moved to Idaho from California. We had children ages ranging from 3 months to 7 years. The service was very slow, I bussed the table myself, the bathrooms were filthy. My daughter-in-law couldn't take 3 year old in to use facilities . My husband who is Italian says we will never come back.

As always, the food at Buca di Beppo was outstanding and we had leftovers for another day. The server was friendly and very good as well. The antipasto salad is scrumptious and the large easily serves 6. My son loves the prisciutto stuffed chicken and the chicken carbonara was a big hit too. This is a great place for a group and provides an opportunity to try different dishes. Will definitely return!

Very disappointing for our, at one time, family favorite. We decided to go to this location, rather than the Oakridge location, because of previous positive experiences there. We also asked via Open Table for the kitchen table if available. Our reservation was for 5:45 pm on a Friday night. We got there a bit early, about 5:30 pm so we weren't surprised when the guy at the check in podium said it would be about 5 minutes to be seated. He had a hard time finding our reservation. Two employees were trying to help him with the system. The restaurant was not crowded at all & the kitchen table was open. We could see it from our bench seating. After 15 minutes, which was now our reservation time, they called us & directed us to a table in the restaurant area. I asked if the kitchen table was available like we had requested. The guy at the podium said it was a 4 person table, so No. I said to him that I have never heard of that before. Now I wondered if this was a new policy for this location? He was cocky & very condescending. As we were directed to a table by another gentleman, we decided on a table in the bar area. The previous podium guy was annoyed that we decided on the bar table instead of what he assigned us to. Our server, Jessica, was a shining light on this rather bumpy start of an evening. She was attentive and friendly. She also was very busy and had a lot to deal with that night. Since it was still bugging us about the kitchen table & about how many people are "allowed" to sit there we asked Jessica. She said that there could be 2 -6 depending on the people in the party. Is there a new number of a minimum 4 for this location? Or does it depend on the guy at the podium "allowing" your request to sit there? The kitchen seating wasn't the issue. It was how the guy responded. This location will suffer in a big way if they do not understand that most diners want to support their local businesses. The rudeness of the front line people won't help them.

Always a good value for the money if you are part of the rewards program. We went on weeknight and it was really slow which should have resulted in attentive staff but, unfortunately, that was not the case. It took quite a while to get a second serving of bread and it took about 20 mins to pay my bill. On the plus side, the food was delicious and usually is. The restaurant was really empty so it should have been a slam dunk for customer service, I was genuinely surprised that it was quite the task to pay the bill. After waiting about 15 minutes, I went to the front to pay the bill but it was empty then tracked down my server who took an additional 5 minutes as he said a register malfunctioned. Seemed like a bad night for us as it should not have taken that long to exit.

The last time we were there, a huge group came into our area--maybe 14 people--and we couldn't hear ourselves think. If we had been entertaining the idea of a dessert, that did it for us. We left as soon as we could. Next time we will ask for a table away from ny large groups.

Good place for Italian food. Served family style, or individual plates. Reasonably priced, family friendly but not overrun with little ones. Friendly and accommodating wait staff. Make a reservation for Sunday dinner or holidays, but otherwise the wait time is usually 30 minutes or less.

I made reservations 2 weeks ago for the special "Pope" table. My party arrived on time (in fact 5 minutes earlier at 6:25). I was told that we would be seated soon. 15 minutes later (everyone else in the room was seated) my party was sitting still waiting for our table to be cleared and prepped. I had small kids 8 and 9 year old starving waiting for a seat to get food, but all I was told was the table had not cleared out and we could not be seated yet. 30 minutes later at 7:00pm, we were finally called to be seated at my reserved time of 6:30pm. Each time I had to ask the hostess when our table would be ready. I thought if you made reservations, that meant your table was saved for you for your time slotted. I was very upset and no one bothered to apologize or let me know what was going on. I will NOT be returning to Buca for any big parties. They obviously do not know how to save reservations for big parties and make sure people are seated at their appointed time.

We used to go to Buca di Beppo's fairly frequently. We hadn't been there in a while, but this time the service was horrible, and although there were other tables available, parties were seated at tables that could barely contain them and very close to other tables. The table next to us knocked over a very large soda, and while the waitress brought a new drink, the soaking wet carpet and pile of ice cubes just sat there. Food is good, but overpriced given the atmosphere of cramped tables, screaming kids and poor service.

The food was delicious and with large proportion from the banquet menu. A party of 9 people celebrating Christmas Party, Glorioso Banquet Menu for $36.99 each person offers selection of two food dishes each from the five Entree menu. I will truly recommend this restaurant to my family and friends.. The ambience was so Italian. We have our own private little section for privacy. The server was very patient and courteous. My colleagues all decided to come back again. Thank you for a good customer service.

BdB is an experience. You normally will not see individuals, or couples dinning. It will be a family group celebrating a birthday, an employee group, or maybe just a group of friends. It always is a warm, fun "group" experience that seems to permeate the environment. That , along wit the interior design that breaks up a very large space into a rich , intimate labyrinth of smaller rooms , adds to the comfort.
We always leave with a sense of the world being right!

A fun place to eat, my mom and I had dinner there after seeing Broadway San Jose's The Sound of Music. Our food was yummy, especially the warm bread. We had the spaghetti and meat balls, ate until we were stuffed, and still had lots of leftovers. The chocolate cake was the best I've had since Costco stopped making their All American Chocolate cake (my all time favorite chocolate cake). A special shout out to Sierra, our waitress. Her service was above outstanding, it was the best service I have ever had in any restaurant, we were both very impressed with her. I would be happy to recommend Buca di Beppo to friends and to go there again myself.

Service always seems to be an issue at the Campbell location. There is always one or two food orders incorrect or not delivered until the end of the meal. If the taste of food declines, we would not return. The restaurant was fairly empty last two times we came so there is no excuse for the lack of service or mess up of food orders! These problems I'm sure have lead to a decline in dinners.
