Buca di Beppo - Cincinnati Ratings and Reviews
Hostess at the front was very direct and not friendly. Stood up on a podium with her ear bud in, a bunch of receipts in her hands, and her keyboard. She bellowed our names as tables were available and was just very dry and curt with her statements.
Server for our meal was dry as well. No engagement; no extras. She took the order, provided the food, and gave me the check. No personality and somewhat rude when she did speak.
We love Buca and we come here a lot. We love the food. We had a table of 4 consisting of 2 couples. Each couple had a 20 dollar coupon that we received in the mail because we signed up to be club members. We were told that only 1 coupon could be used. The card did not say that only 1card per table anywhere. We had separate bills and we ordered a lot of food and wine. As I stated, we come here a lot but I didn’t want to say anything to our server because I didn’t want to be a complainer. You might want to specify on the back of the coupon cards that only 1 card per table. We wouldn’t have ordered so much food and wine. Very frustrating.
Open table portion of the experience was great. Buca di Beppo portion of the experience was not so great. The reservation time of 7:00pm turn into a 45 minute delay. They need to re think their reservation policy and do a better job of managing reservations. I can see a 5 or 10 minute delay, but 45 minutes is not acceptable. I can walk in off the street to many establishments and get a 45 minute to 1 hour wait time without a reservation.
We had a 630 reservation on a Saturday night. They in no way could handle the patrons this evening. We finally got seated around 7 ish. The restaurant was overwhelmed. We finally got our dinner 2 hours later. Nothing came out at the same time. It ruined the evening out. We felt bad complaining. But we had a baby and eighty year old parents with us.
Worst service ever, I thought ahead to make a 7 pm reservation. I did this at 11 am. We arrived and were immediately told they were 30 -45 min behind in seating people. They obviously had overbooked and obviously had put walk in people ahead of people who had planned ahead. We waited 40 min past reservation time then left. Staff was rude as we pulled our name off the list.
we got int he door about 3 minutes late for our 6:45 reservation... we weren't sitting at our table until 7:15. From the looks of the waiting area, they get slammed around the holidays and a 30 minute wait for your reservation to be ready is pretty standard. It wasn't a huge deal, and the staff was friendly and communicated updates... but we made a reservation because we were eating with 3 kids under 4. All things considered, the night was great.
We usually dine at Buca for Thanksgiving. We always have a good experience. My only suggestion is that they have portions for 2 to share vs. 3 or larger. It would make the whole experience much nicer and accommodate our eating preferences better. We are 2 adults and a 4 1/2 year old. Our grandson enjoyed the kids Chicken Marinara.
We dined at Bucca for Thanksgiving dinner with family. Wasn't really thrilled about the shareable entrées. It was hard to choose according to everybody's taste/healthy eating preferences. The prices were to high for the quality/quantity of food.
Overall I was disappointed. The only upside was that our waitress did her job very well!!
We went for my dad's birthday and requested the pope table. This typically has a minimum of 12-18 people but we were only 10. We decided to go anyway because it's easy with kids and the food is pretty good. When we arrived they put us at the pope table, what a nice surprise! We had a fun visit. I highly recommend Buca di Beppo for big groups, they can easily accommodate.
