    The food was delicious and the portions were very good. We had a lot to take home for later. The service was not too great. Our waitress forgot to bring some of the drinks we ordered and never brought out the garlic bread she promised to bring several times. Overall the atmosphere was good and my daughter and her friends enjoyed celebrating her birthday. We were appreciative of the birthday dessert.

    The server we had was horrible. She took forever to come take our food order. I also put in that it was for a birthday, they didn’t do the happy birthday song. The server didn’t ask us if we were here celebrating anything. Didn’t offer desserts. Didn’t offer refills on our drinks when the cups were sitting empty on the table. We had to call her over to take our order while the whole time she was in the area she was cleaning off tables and resetting tables not acknowledging us to take our order. Or even ask if we were ready to order. Didn’t ask us how the food was. Reservations were at 830, we were seated 3 minutes after entering. 845 we got our drinks and we had to tell her we wanted to order appetizers before she walked off again because she didn’t ask. 850 when she walked back in the area we had to call her over so we could order our food. By the time she came back with the appetizers at 915 they were cold. They brought our dinner out at 940 which was also cold and I had to wait another 10 minutes for the side which was the only hot meal they brought to the table. It was the worst experience that I have ever received from buccas employees. I almost didn’t want to tip the waitress because she was so horrible at her job.

    Birthday dinner for my 10 year old son. He loved his meal and ice cream. Our server went above and beyond, and was also taking care of multiple other tables. He was doing a great job.

    Can't write a proper review for the food or anything as we were never greeted or seated. Had a reservation at this location, where we've eaten plenty of times before, and no one was at the front podium or even the bar. There was a take out line, but even people were leaving from there. Stood there looking for people and even called the location while standing next to the phone, but left after 20 minutes past our reservation time to eat at BJ's across the street.

    Buca di Beppo - CincinnatiResponded on July 18, 2022Our service should have been much better than what you received. Please know that we will address this with our team and will do our best to make this an isolated experience. Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback!

    Food was just blah not worth the price tag, it was ok, but flavorless. The service was terrible. The restaurant was not busy and it took almost 90 minutes from start to finish. If I didn’t have a coupon I wouldn’t recommend going in.

    We went there for Father’s Day, had a reservation and were seated in a timely manner. Once at the table we weren’t acknowledged by the waiter for a while, probably more than 20-25mins, we were getting ready to leave and she showed up. After that food was delivered timely, but it wasn’t as good as it used to be, the flavor and quality weren’t there. It was just ok.

    They seemed surprised that 1) were there and 2) that there were 9 of us! How can this be? My confirmation clearly showed the time and number of guests. I also confirmed via Opentable the day of. Our server, Brandy, was excellent! The place is dated which affects ambiance but we knew what to expect. The food was great!.

    Always a great spot for a big party. The food was just okay at best though. Everything was dry like the salmon or rubbery like all of the chicken dishes. You would expect the quality to be better for the price.

    Food was good but it took FOREVER. Had to ask multiple times for things like silverware - and were told that “we just changed how we do silverware” and were handed a plate full of forks and a handful of napkins even though there were silverware rolls on every table around us. We had to ask for our dirty dishes to be removed. We had a reservation made months ago and noted it was a special occasion but that was not acknowledged. Seemed like a lot of excuses - like “we don’t make the bread here”. Every one of us in our party has or is currently working in the restaurant industry. You don’t blame the kitchen. You just fix it.

    Will never go here again! 1st time here after reading great reviews. Ordered a punch bowl drink. It came with a bug inside. We immediately got up and left. There was no sense of concern to the bug in our drink, must be common. We didn’t wait for food. 🤮

    I always love going to Buca especially with a big group where they can serve your meal family style. We went for our daughters' graduations. Love the special tables with the lazy susan in the middle so you can easily pass food, plates, drinks, etc. around to everyone. Food was delicious, had a couple of missteps with service (but our server was super nice), it took a long while to get our food and drinks (because the restaurant was super crowded) and it was pretty loud and warm temp but we still enjoyed it and would definitely come again! Oh and don't let me forget the dessert! WOW - definitely don't skip dessert - and note they are very large and shareable!

    We love Buca’s but unfortunately we were disappointed in the food during this visit. The food was not as tasty as usual. At this visit they were out of shells and our previous visit they were out of garlic bread and meatballs. We understand there are supply issues but we were still disappointed because we were there specifically to get the meatballs. We may try it one more time.

    We waited almost am hour to get drinks. After complaining, a manager came and started making things happen. We really appreciate all of her service. The food was good, especially the appetizers. While i feel that the food is a bit overpriced, the portion sizes are very large. You will definitely have leftovers. Despite the rough beginning, I would still reccomend dining here. It was a friday night, they seemed a bit short staffed, plus our waitress was new. Once she got spme help, things started running more smoothly. We will be back.

    Our sever was outstanding, the food was really good and the portion sizes are huge, the one thing I would say is that for this to be a family restaurant there are some pretty inappropriate pictures on the walls. I was really uncomfortable with my children looking at some of those pictures.
