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.

Our waiters were WONDERFUL. Despite making a last minute reservation for 12 - 1 hour before closing and showing up with 16, they treated us amazingly. Their attitudes/personalities helped to make our dinner a special celebration we won't forget. Thank you!

Bday dinner for our four year old. Mid week was the best- no crowds, service was at its best and best of all, so was the food. Can definitely tell a difference in food quality depending on evening flow.

Food was very good and my family had a very nice Mother's Day. Service was pretty good but the waiter may have been new or inexperienced as there were a few small issues with service. Overall a very good experience and I would recommend this for large groups.

Food taste massed produced...very bland. Service was great. The Pope room was gross. The wooden chair, the statue in the middle and all the Pope pictures were weird and excessive.

Went for my daughter’s bday dinner. Everything tasted fresh. Learned that the large order of garlic bread was too much for our party of 3 adults and 2 kids. Better than too little! We got the big brownie sundae for dessert. It was huge and delicious. My daughter was very happy. They went out of their way to make her feel special. We will be back.

To be fair, it was a busy Saturday afternoon, and there were lots of large groups. Noise level was loud for older folks who have trouble with background noise. And the women in our group were cold. They did bring the temp up when we complained, but then it was back down by the time we left. Great food, though.

Unfortunately we found the food lacking flavor. Everything was hot and out to us promptly. Also the salad was way too much onion flavor. Overall it was fine for a large group.

I have gone to Buca di Beppo and always had a great time. On this occasion it really dented my celebration mood. Lets just say if you have a special occasion you might want to try some other place especially if it's a birthday or a wedding anniversary.

Our waiter brought our drinks with ice, despite saying no ice. We asked kindly to have 2 of it changed. My 70 year old dad with a cold and my mum. He was so rude and upset about that he snatched the cups away and split the drinks on their hands, then said it will be a while before he can get back to us because he was busy and had to attend to other people. It was their wedding anniversary and we did not want to let that take away from the mood. We ignored that and ordered our meal and it arrived ( wrong order) , we waited 20 mins for silverware, eventually got up and asked if we could have one and someone else brought those for us.
He never checked on us or apologize for any of this.
It was a double celebration for us - my twin girls birthday and my parents 40th wedding anniversary. My daughter was excited about the singing and kept saying it's my sisters birthday. She was completely ignored. Horrible service, cold food, horrible day for all of us.

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!

Birthday dinner. Server was great. It was a slow night, so the noise level was down. Food and desserts were tasty. Leftovers were great for the next couple days, too!
