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.

I have a hard time hearing people at my table in restaurants. That was not a problem here. Food was good, server was awesome, and we did not feel rushed to leave. They didn't mind us visiting for a while after our meal.
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.
Wait time sucked even though I had a reservation
But overall service, ambiance and food was great
Nikki (was really good ) was on top of everything
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
Spaghetti extremely dry, very little sauce, not very tasty, not many spices, food cost too high for value, waitress seem irritated, not recommend
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.
Great food and lots of it!
Dinner with my new in-laws. Service was good. Food was ok.
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.
Good food and nice portion sizes. This place is great for groups or family meals. This location is among the best Buca's I have dined.
Aside from the great tasting food was the service provided by Kyle. He did an excellent job with our party of 10.
The Waitstaff Was Amazing! They accommodated all of our late RSVPs... They are really amazing!!!
It's buca de beppo. Mheh.
Other than the noise level, this was a great visit!
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.
Food came out cold, had to be re-cooked. Calamari was awful-- restaurant removed the dish from our bill
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.
Excellent pasta and birthday cake! Adam was a good waiter!
Always love it there
Good food. Good place for dinner.
We anticipated New Years eve to be busy at the restaurant but didn't expect as poor a service that most of the items on our order had something off with them. Overall, average Italian food, good value for family though.
Callen was great and very attentive. food was good, service was outstanding.
Service was average at best, no management around. Lots of food, pretty good too
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.
Excellent waiter, good food for family style dining.
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.
Food above average. Service not so good. Waited a long time with 4 children for a reserved table. Server seemed rushed and kept telling us how busy it was.
Extremely Disappointing. We were looking for a fun and causal place to celebrate a birthday. We made a reservation but it was unnecessary the restaurant was nearly empty. We were seated right away, and ordered shortly there after. The waiter came to the table a few times to refill water and soft drinks. After 30 minutes he told us that our order was coming up any minute; then he seem to vanish. after another 20 minutes I got up to look for him and saw him sitting in the kitchen. The manager then came over to the table and informed us that our ticket had some how been lost and that were going to start making our food right away. She also stated tat she would be adjusting our check to "accommodate" us for the delay. 15 minutes later the food arrived, over all the food was rather bland.
The waiter than handed me the bill, the accommodating adjustment - $10. That's right less than the amount of a free soft drink for the four of us.
Then both the manager and waiter said to us. We hope you had a good time.
Needless to say No we did not. Bye bye Buca
Most entries come in two sizes: 1)small, which will be well enough for two, maybe three, 2) large, which will be enough for four, maybe even six.
A very nice selection of Italian dishes and salads that are delicious. Will go again.
Our server was very knowledgable-we loved that! Our appetizers Thru desserts were very good! We will definely be back!
LOVE BUCA I HAD WEDDING SHOWER BIRTHDAY AND BABY SHOWER THERE
The server was amazing, the food was good, took a long time to get and was warm not hot, which was strange. However the restaurant was freezing cold so maybe that was it.
Fair to poor..
A bit too warm! Outside temp in Chandler was about 118 degrees, inside restaurant was struggling to keep the room cool. Our server was great and did what she could to make our experience a good one!
Excellent food, outstanding service and was very nice for our group, including 2 three month old babies. We were seated in the back of a room, with a long bench to set baby carriers and stuff and we had room to walk babies as needed. My daughter was able to nurse completely discreetly, and there was the chatter of many other small children in the area, so we did not ever stand out. We will be back again with our grand babies, even more that we came before them. But turn up the old music, like Dean Martin. We can't even hear it anymore. Once again: the service was amazing.
This was not our first visit to Buca. We love that they serve their entrees family style. This was the first time we tried the chicken cannelloni - oh my how delicious. Not just a little chicken, but oodles with the wonderfully flavorful ricotta and mozzarella. Their chicken parmigiana is also the best. Over the years we have never been disappointed with the quality of their food.
