No balsamic on caprese and bruschetta and the bruschetta presentation was odd, served in a giant liquor glass with hard and soupy tomatoes. The waiter worked very hard.

We enjoyed our lunch entrees of baked ziti, chicken parmigiana with fettuccine alfredo and meatball smash sub sandwich. The colossal brownie sundae dessert was a nice treat.

Reservation was ok waiting another 20 min to be seated.
While I appreciate the server informing us that it will be an hour to an hour in half to Get out food once we place our order. I think the manager didn’t do a good job of managing the kitchen. That is a ridiculous wait time for food once you order. It was only four of us and that’s not acceptable. We left and had to find a restaurant last minute to have dinner.

Father’s day, one of our orders did not arrive, but they compensated it by giving us free dessert and took out the fried mozzarela from our bill. We were happy nevertheless. The food is great as always👍

I ordered a pizza extra cheese and the cook decided that would be to greasy so he sent out a pizza with Normal cheese. Cook what’s asked for. They didn’t even offer to remake it.

Overall, without the excuse of COVID-19 not only was the overall food quality disappointing, but service was less than par.

We ordered appetizers and server was trying to bring main dishes just as the appetizers arrived, almost like the establishment was in a hurry to push us out the door.

We were there to celebrate my sons 22nd Birthday and no acknowledgement even after my wife had mentioned it to our server on two occasions. Very disappointing and makes us not want to come back.

We have enjoyed past celebration visits to Buca and hopes to revisit the same situation.

If any managers are reading this, we are here to say the 5 of us see no point on returning as our over experiences didn’t support the $300 plus dollars we donated to your restaurant.

Be prepared food came in large portions to feed many. Family size servings to be shared (small portion feed at least 5). Price reflects the large sizes. My favorite the salad ...the pasta was okay. The decor/photos kept me and my family entertained. Our server was super friendly but not the host, she had a poor attitude and was extremely rude.

Was immediately seated with my reservation which was nice. Other places make you wait even with a reservation. My server was really attentive and made excellent wine pairing recommendations. The food is on the pricey side (it is better suited for a larger party of at least 4), but was pleased with the taste, the ambiance, the decor. I will definitely come back!

The food was amazing, no complaint there. But the service was horrible. We sat there for about 10 minutes before we were approached for drinks then another 10 minutes before we got our drinks. The server kept walking by our table as we were trying to flag her down to ask for drinks or questions since she wouldn’t come check on our table. But when it came to picking up the check she was very punctual and even pushy to get us to pay and clear out the table. For the amount we spent to eat here the service was horrible.

Upon arriving at the location...looked very crowded and too many people waiting for tables and all the walk-in and the to go’s. Im sure its due to Mother’s day. Management and the hostess were overwhelmed!!! I had my reservation at 8pm and was taken to our table very fast!!! Restaurant kind of crowded and stuffy (esp during covid). Our waitress was great overall...she was knowledgeable of her menu n foods.

Great experience! Ambiance was nice and food came in big portions. Reservation arrival to sitting was excellent went right in. Only thing may recommend especially on holidays is trying to get an reservation early because some dishes they ran out of. Recommend it’s worth it one if my favorite places.

Brought my wife, son, and wife's mother and stepfather for Mother's Day celebration lunch. First time ever at Buca Di Beppo and we were all blown away by the food. Quality ingredients and great flavor. Ordered the lasagna, caesar salad, and eggplant parmesan. Sauces were not overly sweet and you could taste the tomato, sauce, riccota, eggplant, etc. With no one ingredient overpowering the others. Will come back again!

All in all a pleasant experience. Over priced for the ambiance and quantity. Ends up averaging $50 per person with drinks for a casual restaurant. Not fine white linen tablecloths, or servers in black tie informs as would be expected fir the prices. Our server that evening was Becky. I highly recommend her. Attentive, knowledgeable efficient.

I’m assuming it’s because of covid but the service was really bad. The waitress did not check on us snd served food without giving us silverware or plates. It took awhile to get the attention of another service worker to get things we needed to eat. The food was good just I don’t recommend dine in.
