We had a party of 20 and we were seated and served our food within 20 minutes. I've never had such fast service for such a large group!

Food wasn’t good. I paid way too much, and the service was very poor. I brought my three children with me for my birthday. The only item we all liked was the big ice cream brownie thing, and that was free. Ironic. We won’t be going back.

First time going, me and my boyfriend LOVED the food. They're are lying when they said you'll have leftover for lunch the next day. But no dissatisfaction at all, I wouldnt mind havent those leftovers. REALLY GOOD FOOD. I think I found my new favorite restaurant. But I recommend going in groups of 3 or more, its alot of food. But REALLY GOOD!

The food was too expensive for the quality level. The lasagna was dry and appeared it had been sitting under a heat lamp for quite awhile. The chicken Parm was cold and did not come with a pasta, so we ordered a small meatball and spaghetti and that was it...spaghetti and 3 meatballs. No sauce of any kind. Is also the only Italian restaurant we’ve been to that doesn’t provide complementary bread of some type. Hadn’t been to Buca di Beppo in a long time and probably won’t be going back there.

My only issue was the fact that I came in and the host was not friendly quickly asked if I had a reservation and I didn’t so she said they can’t take anyone else.
I went outside set a reservation through open table and got right to my table???

This almost detoured me from staying or ever coming back. The waitress made up for the hostesses behavior.

It was a busy day for them being it was the day after Christmas, but her actions need to be addressed.

Although our waitress was spectacular, the food was terrible. Carbonara sauce is NOT the same as Alfredo! The portions were enormous, but when the food is not good, there is no temptation in taking home what does not get eaten. The only positive was the Italian Creme Cake. If you have to go there, get that for dinner.

I have been to Buca di Beppo's several times. I always have a great experience. This time I went with my boyfriend for a Date Night. We ordered the Quattro al Forno. It's such a great deal because you get to try 4 different stuffed pastas for the price of one. You just can't beat it. My favorite is the Cheese Manicotti & the Chicken Cannelloni. So yummy. Our server was fantastic. Very attentive. The only thing I wish is that they would let you use coupons with gift cards. But other than that it is always a great experience.

Look - its Buca. Its a chain that is over the top old school Italian cliche. My daughter likes it so we went on her birthday. Its casual and its kinda fun if you just let down pretense. If you accept that it is meant to be over the top it works. Yes, some people probably think it is authentic and its hard not to laugh at that. But don't let that bother you. Understand it is kitsch.

First - this location. I cannot see this place staying in business. On a Friday night at 6:30 there were literally only 3 tables in use in the entire place. Maybe a decade ago there would have been a line. Many chain restaurants are suffering similar fates.

The staff was wonderfully nice and attentive. Could not ask for more.

Value - at most it is just okay. Its family style which can help value, with a large spaghetti is $35. Depending on how much people eat, that can feed 3 or 4. Either way that is a fairly normal price for nothing special pasta. Pasta, more than about any dish, is one that you cannot think about how much it would cost for you to make at home and still justify paying for it.

We always have a good time while eating at Buca. I have noticed lately that the building upkeep has gone downhill. I know that the restaurant business is super compeditive and costs must be looked at carefully for renovations. The seating is beyond uncomfortable in the bar area especially the booth seats. My tailbone ached when I was sitting there as was others in my party. Probably time to do some sprucing up ??
