Buca di Beppo - Cincinnati Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
