Not a good choice for a smaller group, with only two of us dining, there were NO options for individual servings. Every dish including the salads are only available in a "small" size that feeds 3 or a larger size. Everything is ala cart and there were no options to even get a side of pasta without ordering another full meal. I can see this being a great idea for larger groups, but made dinner for 2 very expensive! Of course there were leftovers. Service was slow, baked ziti was nothing spectacular and our server was slow and disappeared for long periods of time making it difficult to even get a drink refill. The inside is decorated in old Italian decor everywhere and the restaurant was very loud.

An excellent place for large groups; we had a party of five for a birthday; however we noted several larger groups enjoying themselves. Keep in mind the family style menu. The small size entree will feed 4 to 6; the menu indicates it will serve 3. If you order using the menu suggestions get ready to spend some $$ and take home a lot of leftovers.

Great food at a great price as long as folks at your table want the same thing. If not, you're going to pay a bit more and leave with lots of leftovers as dishes are sized for 2-3 people.

Although overall the food was very good, although the garlic bread tasted "fishy" for some reason. Also, we didn't appreciate that when they said shrimp pasta diavlo was spicy, they really meant it.

One of, if not the worst, dining experience I have ever had. First off, we were sat in the bar and had 2 teenage girls with us. Very loud. Waited forever for the server to come by. Once he did, he proceeded to take our order without writing anything down. I knew we were doomed right there. He then came back to ask us what he forgot. We told him. The garlic bread app never arrived. The salad plates were never removed. We had to move dishes around just to give the main course plates room to be placed. We then asked about our bread and he said it would be right out. (see above) Finally I got up and talked to the AGM who then took over our table . In the mean time, we asked our original server for take away boxes and he said he would have to search for them. Never showed. Had to ask another server for boxes and she brought them right out. Oh, and the food was cold and not very good.

My husband and I decided to give this location another try after an horrible experience a year back. We were sorta worried, but were shocked but in a good way. As soon as we walked in we were greeted by a Nichole. She was super happy and seemed to enjoy her job. The kitchen tour wasnt rushed and our table was clean. Our server was fantastic and the food was great. The restaurant seems to be under new management ment and it doesnt need to change any. As we made our exit Nichole was busy with another guest but still said goodbye to us. Thank you Buca for changing how you did things. We will be back!

Portion sizes are huge. Food was tasty but my only complaint is the cleanliness of the restaurant and furniture is old and needs updating. Floors, table cover and walls were sticky and gross. We were sitting in a booth and the booth seating was not comfortable at all. They seem very old and over used. I would recommend a deep cleaning of the restaurant including the walls. If I ever come back I would probably do a to go order.

For some reason our caprase salad took forever to arrive, but they comped it. Then, the kids' pizza wasn't delivered until the adults were almost finished, Again, it was comped. Not sure why there was such an issue in about he kitchen, it was 3:00PM on a Sunday, and they weren't that busy.

Where to start? ... It took too long for the server to greet us, it took forever to get our food, our dishes were dirty (large chunks of chocolate cake in between the bottom two plates in the stack! ) Then the order was wrong. (No offer to make it right or adjust the check, etc.) The kitchen staff was unprofessional, no hair nets or gloves, and eating on the line while cooking! After the meal the server boxed up our leftovers. She put our pizza in the box, piece by piece, WITH HER BARE HANDS! She did this at the table, right in front of us! I'm embarrassed that I took my mother and kids for mother's day dinner there now. I was very unimpressed by this experience and seriously doubt I'll go back to Buca di Beppo anytime soon...

Was a very busy night & I was very impressed that our reservation for a party of 9 was ready as soon as we got in the door. Originally, they seated us at two separate tables back to back & I requested that they place the two tables together so we would all be at one large table. They accommodated that immediately and were happy to do so even with being as busy as they were. Food wasn't fantastic but it was good. I feel terrible that I cannot remember our servers name but she was a pleasure & did a fantastic job with our group.

Normally whenever we go there the food is always great!! But for Valentines Day part of the lasagna was hot and others was cold....too expensive for that to happen. They also had a offer where if your order lasagna special you got a free pizza, but the pizza looked more like a tortilla wrap with some pizza ingredients on it.....will be awhile before returning.

The food was good, standard Buca Di Beppo fare. The service was terrible, as we had a server who was slow, frequently MIA, so we'd have to rely on another server to help us. They ran out of the kids' mac and cheese, and had to 'make it from scratch,' which took a very long time. We were in the restaurant from 7:30 until 9:30, not by choice. Some of the food took a very long time, and I hope someone gives the server a refresher on how to provide a high standard of service.

The food was mediocre at best. Portions were gigantic - we expected family style but this was beyond that. Kids portions were adult sized or bigger. Service was unenthusiastic and it was difficult getting things on time ( one entree came out 5-10 minutes before any others). Not remotely worth the money. Choose somewhere else if you're looking for a positive dining experience.
