This was the worst dining experience that we have ever had! We had to send several dishes back because they were cold. I attempted to speak with a manager and he blew me off even going so far as to ridicule us to other patrons. I will NEVER go here again!

Looks like a place you visit while on vacation. Lots of decorations. Food is family style which means there's plenty to share and perhaps take home. Didn't know that going in, prices a bit high.

They were out of pizza and meatballs. How does this happen? Our server told us that they ran out a few days ago. I wish they would have told us when they called to confirm our reservation a couple days before.

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.

Family style servings mean everyone has something to eat at the same time. Choosing dishes & serving up always makes for some lively interaction with the group. Best group dining available *because* of the family portions.

Food and service was great as always. But our group of 10 was scrunched into a narrow table for 8. It was not comfortable even though we had a couple of smaller children. That has never happened before so I hope they will take note and adjust.

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.

The family’s first visit to celebrate our son’s 25th birthday. The staff was friendly, the atmosphere fun and inviting and the food was exceptional! The food is served family style and each entree serves 3-4 people. You can also reserve the chef’s table in the kitchen. We’re definitely coming back!

Good service and interesting decor. We had the calamari appetizer which was delicious, but the sauce was a bit spicy. If you don't like spice ask for the sauce without the hot pepper flakes on top. For dinner we had the linguini with seafood (frutti de mar) which was also delicious. We ordered a small for two of us and it could have easily fed 4. I think they gave us a pound of pasta. Yum leftovers. Would recommend for any occasion, but don't expect a quiet dinner. The layout of the restaurant consists of many smaller rooms which can be loud if you are next to a large party.

We had a table of five, reservations at 5:15. Seated on time not very busy seated Us in the bar section and let the bartender be our waitress service was poor no refills unless I asked. Brought entree prior to salads had to send back when they did bring entrees they were one short and the previously brought
entree was obviously sitting back there for a while. Overheard management saying do not give butter or oil with bread unless they ask. Would spend my money at Maggiano's.

Had a 5:30 PM reservation and was seated on time. We were served promptly for our drink order as we looked over the menu.

The food, as always, was totally delicious. You can tell that quality ingredients are used it was all wonderful.

We did feel kind of rushed though, being asked if we wanted the check while my wife was still eating. It was not busy with people waiting, so we did feel a bit disappointed with that.
