Buca di Beppo - Cincinnati Ratings and Reviews
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.
Everything is family style, so when only 2 people go you pretty much have to eat the same entree or you will have leftovers for days if you order a second one and a hefty bill for just two. I would recommend you have at least 3 or more people in your party when you go or you will be limited as to what you can try.
Service was terrible. We waited more than 15 min for someone to take our drink order, and once we finally ordered food, it took almost an hour to be served. The manager went to another table to apologize for the long wait, even though they had been there less time than us, and they never said a word to us about the wait. We aren't ones to complain, but maybe we should speak up next time.
We went to Buca di Beppo for Mother's Day. My boyfriend's mom enjoyed it VERY much. The food was incredible, the service was awesome, and walking through the kitchen was pretty neat too!
We also liked that everyone on staff made notice of us, and said "Hello" or "Welcome".
Also- making a reservation on OpenTable makes life 100% easier!
Mediocre food sold in family size portions... That's the short version. If just getting everyone around a table to eat out is important, this may be the place... But, if you want a quality meal at a reasonable price, this ain't that. I'd say go somewhere else... Call ahead... Make a reservation... But this isn't a solution for fine family style dining. It's more of a concession.
