We always love this place. We had our two year old twin granddaughters there. We started bringing them at 3 months It is a fabulous place to introduce children to restaurant dining. The staff just go overboard helping out. Good food, good prices, great service, very fun. The girls went crazy for the raspberry gelato cones

Seating area was extremely warm, wait staff was sweating. Food was good and came rather quick. Server was very distracted and we had to ask for refills multiple times before he got everyone a drink. We waited long then our reservation time. A few if the cooks in the back were also sweating. This was worst experience I have had a this chain. Go to the one in Scottsdale!

Bad experience, went for my birthday and waiter was no where to be found most of the time while we where dinning. He forgot our waters and I had to get the attention of a manager to bring us waters. After we had bread and salad. It was not a great experience this time.

The drinks we ordered were wrong and needed to go back. The fried foods we ordered were soggy. The salad we ordered was made incorrectly. The server was great but the manager didn't seem to care that we made it a point to let him know how many problems we had in the little time we were there.

Had a child’s birthday party with 13 on a quiet night (less than half tables full). Food was really good family comfort food and the waiter was great but the kitchen service was so SLOW. Salads came within about 10 min but then dinner came over an hour after and by that time the kids were tired and the parents, too. Just fix the kitchen pacing and it would be great for families.

This was a birthday dinner for me and my sweetheart and sat at the bar. Service was friendly, efficient and attentive.
The food was bland without any noticeable flavor other than the shrimp and butter. The only flavor the pasta had was of possibly being cooked/boiled in butter.
We only consumed a small amount of our dinner and gave the remaining portions away to homeless people whom we hope enjoyed it more than us.

We were amazed that it cost $100 for 4 people to have a chicken breast, a tablespoon of garlic mashed potatoes each, Caesar salad with hardly any dressing, and a Tiramisu to share. We were celebrating 2 birthdays and usually (at most restaurants we frequent) are given a dessert for the occasion. We were shocked and disappointed that they only sang to the 2 birthdays because we ordered and paid for the Tiramisu.

The food is horrible able and everything's extremely overpriced for the lack of quality. They try to make up for it with large portions but who wants a lot of a bad thing. The service was excellent I just wish the food wasn't so bad. Do yourself a favor and just go somewhere else

Given the fact that many restaurants are closed Christmas Eve, thankfully Buca in Chandler was open. The restaurant was busy. The staff were running around like crazy with an awesome attitude! The food came out hot and was delicious! We were fortunate to enjoy a great bottle of wine from their "discontinued" list.

Due to the fact it was Christmas Eve, and we were looking for time to enjoy family we felt very rushed. Server was too focused on getting in as many people and tips as possible. The server was somewhat friendly but seemed to forget the fact it was family time for us and for the price of dinner we didn't need to be rushed. We've eaten here many times before and it is a great group place. Family style sizes however we felt the food this evening was too mass produced. Missing a bit of that yummy flavor we are used to.

I booked a birthday dinner, and was never told they charge a cake 'holding fee' of $15! They told me this when I checked in, and when I said I had no idea about that, was told 'oh, they should have said something when you booked your reservation..it's a new charge'. At that point I was stuck and had no option but to pay. Poor service throughout the night, inattentive waiter, and a ridiculous cake fee. The food is always consistent, so I can't complain about the quality, but will not be returning due to the service.

This a great noisy family style place to dine. We had 12 at the table and only one problem - the veal saltimbocca was tasty but tough. The lasagne and the prosciutto chicken dishes are fantastic. We also shared a giant tiramusu (yum) and colossal brownie sundae.

Went to Buca di Beppo for a graduation celebration on a Friday night. There were 10 people in our party and were seated right away. We were not in a big hurry as we were catching up with family, but service was slow. I recognize it was a Friday and there were other people there for graduation celebrations. With that said, if you have a large group and are not in a hurry, this is a good place to go.

We want to like this place but I always leave feeling I paid to much for what I got and the experience I just had.
There are some restaurants that you always feel so well taken care of. Here I don’t. The food is good as far as casual Italia goes but the bill is always so high. Drinks and Desserts are overpriced and really pasta is pasta. The servers are busy but most often scarce and they prebill gratuity. Not a fan of paying gratuity that isn’t earned. And I am generous when the service is good.
Sorry bucca just can’t give the stars this time.

I keep going back because I like the lemon chicken. I was disappointed to see the caprese salad no longer has roasted red peppers. And the tomatoes were hard.
We had a $15 coupon for Black Friday and decided to go.
The service was so slow. We waited forever for our drinks.
Then again to place our order. The food came quick but then we waited with empty dirty dishes for ages. Nice girl just not good server.
We had three pieces of chicken, pasta with sauce, caprese, a house wine and beer.
The bill for two with tip was $98 after we used our coupon. OUCH. To much for that type of place.

We stopped here for an afternoon lunch. There were not many people there that day and we were seated right away. We ordered the shells and the manicotti which were both good. The shells are my favorite. We did get dessert that day which we normally don't do. I cant remember what exactly it was called but it was the cake. I had my doubts about it because it said it had lemon flavoring in it but the waitress said you cannot taste the lemon. The cake was ok and I could taste the lemon, I think I would of preferred the ice cream like I was going to get. It seemed after we got our food though the waitress kind of just disappeared and we had to scope the place out to find her for things we needed.
