First let me say we are long time Buca diners. This time we were disappointed in general. We walked in and there was no one at the front desk. I had to walk thru the place and find the hostess. She sat us on the bench seats that have been there since they opened. You sink down and feel the springs. We ordered the chicken parm. The chicken was dry and the breading was over cooked..very hard. Our server was very pleasant and took great care of us. We are not sure we will return.

Entrees were bland - ordered three entrees for six, and we all agreed the meals had no “punch.” Appetizers were a bit better. First round of bar service was ok, second not so much. A glass of simple wine order took over 15 minutes to be delivered. Had to flag waiter down many times - he never proactively came to our 6-top table without being flagged-down or telling another staff member to retrieve our server, usually met with a huff or a curt response or a sigh from whatever staff person was politely asked. We, all 6, agreed, we won’t be back to this location and sadly, probably to the restaurant.

Still love the decor and Pope’s table / room, and photos and memorabilia - too bad aside from our longtime friends camaraderie, those are the only “memorable” aspects of the evening at this location.

Always good food and ambience but front desk never reads the notes on the reservations, like birthday as in this case. Also there were only four 1x1 inch slices of beef in the rib orecchiette dish. Mostly pasta. Very disappointing- as the previous time I had this same dish the meat was plentiful. She took some money off but wanted the meat not the savings.

We asked the waiter for two glasses of house Cabernet. He didn’t tell us they don’t have a house Cabernet. The wine he served us was $12/glass for 6 ozs. I was annoyed by that so the manager did give us a $10 gift card to make up for the waiter’s action.

Food was very good, as always! What was quite disturbing, though, was our server. Our bill was $30.04 and we were paying with a $50 gift card. I asked the server if we could put his tip on our gift card and he said sure. So, I asked him to verify the total for me just because I didn't have my glasses with me, so I wanted to be sure to total it out correctly. So, I wrote in a tip for him for $10 and he asked if we wanted to keep the gift card with just $9.96 on it, what we get there for $9.96 on a return visit? He was implying that we should give him the balance of the card and a $19.96 tip which was really rude!

We went to Bucca for Thanksgiving this year and it was wonderful! It was a little loud but honestly I have two toddlers so it didn't bother me because when they got a little whiny no one around us could hear them and get annoyed. It was very family friendly and the service was great even with how busy it was. Food came out fast and the short rib pasta dish was AMAZING! All our dishes were good. We are planning on going back for Christmas Eve!

honestly, the food was pretty mediocre and it was SO busy (thanksgiving day) that the service was quite slow, especially for drinks and added items. Three people in our party got the turkey dinner and liked it, but the rest of us who got chicken parm felt it was very mediocre— the chicken breasts were overcooked and lacked flavor. The tiramisu was also kind of ridiculous - she said it was a serving for 2, but it was easily 4 servings of a frozen one that barely had any ladyfingers or espresso flavor.

We had to wait even though we had a reservation. It was very loud in our section-hard to carry a conversation. We ordered soup which they had apparently run out of before we got ours. It was just an okay experience. Would have been better off getting our Italian fix elsewhere.

We stopped in as we were in the area for a competition. The service was excellent upon entering the restaurant. The hostess was personable and friendly. We were promptly seated. The servers were attentive and friendly. We ordered several different items to share with everyone at the table and it was all really good with lots of leftovers to take home. We were in the dining area with several big parties that were going on, so it was loud and energetic which we were fine with. But there were several more intimate and quiet areas if that is preferred. We would definitely return if we were in the area again.

My fiance and I have been to Buca Di Beppo's several times. We always have a great experience. This time we were there for my birthday. We had a $20 coupon off our meal and a free dessert. The dessert was no joke. In years past you received a small cake for your birthday. This time we received the Colossal Sundae. It was huge!! There was only two of us and there was no way we could finish it. I wish we would have had another couple with us to help eat it. I do think I prefer the cake to the sundae. Because at least you can take the cake to-go. No way to really do that with the sundae because all the ice cream would melt. So we did end up wasting a lot of the sundae because we were so full. But other than that we had a great time.

We waited a long time after we finished eating to get our bill and to get a drink refill. When she came she asked if we wanted dessert and I said no. I guess she was continuing to tell us dessert options because then she said “and just cut me off.” I wasn’t trying to be rude and didn’t appreciate being made to feel like I was. Now I get an email that we no-showed so I have to deal with that to not lose credit with OpenTable. I’d be happy to show my credit card statement for the $60plus dinner bill if needed. Not a great experience.
