Another great evening meal at Buca di Beppo, with plenty of leftovers! The noise level is a bit high, but sheltered by the booth, it made conversation with our friends easy. We had chicken carbonara, a favorite of ours, and it was delicious, as always.

I absolutely hate that back room – we had reservations for a special event, and was disappointed that we were put in a room with groups of 20 and 30 people. There were eight of us. Very difficult to have a nice family Easter dinner that way. If you make a reservation, be sure to tell them to avoid that room.

The food and service, as always, were wonderful.

Our party of 4 was seated next to a party of 12. Their noise wasn’t the problem. The problem was that the servers had to keep squeezing by or table to serve their food. Often times with hot dishes above our heads.

We arrived around 6:30 pm for our 6:45 pm Reservation and were told that they were very overbooked and that there would be a significant delay. There was absolutely no concern or care about this and they said they couldn’t tell us how delayed it would be. When pressed they said “probably 30 minutes”. They finally seated about 45 minutes after our reservations time We were seated in the room that was so loud you couldn’t hear the person across the table from you talking all in all it was an extremely disappointing experience when that we will not repeat anytime soon.

I would definitely NOT recommend this restaurant

I would give this rating minus stars if it was an option

Food was about the quality of frozen food at the supermarket. Family style didn’t work out well for our different tastes and added a lot to the price. Waiter was very accommodating and offered a lunch menu item instead.

Fun time with the kids. The food came out relatively quickly for the amount of customers in the restaurant. The restaurant was bustling at this hour (Sunday around 615pm) and everyone seemed to be having a good time. We will be back.

Like always this restaurant never disappoints. Great place to share dinner with friends. They have family style dishes for everyone to share. We ordered 4 small dishes and it was plenty of food for 6. They also have a kids menu for the kids that want own meal. Love this place.

The food was fine - as would be expected the service (Sabrina) was friendly, attentive and unrushed, but it was very, very noisy. Very happy to have had open table reservations because the wait was over 2 hours when we showed up for our reservation time.

Never go here without a reservation and plan on waiting 30-40 mins past your time if you do. 2-2 1/2 hour wait last night without a res with a tiny place to wait.

Run down establishment with dirty carpet. Food and service are good, but worn out decor and high prices are a turn off.

We've dined here a few times already with our boys. It's nice that it's kid friendly. Boys love the food and portion sizes. The bill can getup there, so I recommend buying their gift cards at Costco.

Unusually long wait to be seated, the restaurant was half empty the floors were over due for sweeping. Perhaps the crew was too busy to take care of it. No plans to go back to this location.

The service was bad from the minute we were seated. Took 20 minutes for server to a knowledge us. We ordered cocktails . After 15 minutes I walked to the bar were our drink order was waiting , grabbed a tray and delivered them to our table myself. We had 2 very young children with us and it took almost 2 hours to complete dinner. Won’t be coming back here again.

Very good calamari, seafood pasta, ziti, salad and cheesy bread. A bit expensive but massive amount of food. Service was excellent. Noise level was better than usual (maybe because it was Monday and not as crowded). We always make reservations so we never have to wait for more than 5 minutes.

where can I start? Kept waiting 15 min after reservation time with plenty of tables. See photo.

Many unbussed tables with disgusting leftover food left on them. The entire time of our visit.

food, cups and silverware on the floor.

Sat 10 min before anyone came for a drink order.

Birthday celebration identified in the reservation and server was told - they totally forgot about it. Were reminded - then they got the ice cream flavor wrong.

Bathrooms were atrocious. 'Stuff' floating in the urinals. Wife mentioned the women's restroom was not much better. There was stuff on the floor everywhere.

They served food - but did not bring us silverware to eat it with.

I've never thought Buca was a very good value, but its dirty and has poor service as well.

If you look closely at the photo you will see totally empty tables - with food on them - there is nothing pretty about a melted down huge ice cream Sunday 60 min after serving it. you will also see a lot of empty tables when they were telling people they had a 90 min wait. Plate and silverware on the floor.

Our waitress Ceci was great, however, a server was absolutely rude. Ceci suggested the chicken be cut in half for our large party. When it came out, it wasn’t cut. I asked him to cut it and he became upset. He was patronizing, arrogant, and ruined our special occasion. I reminded him the customer is always right. After all it was how I ordered it and he said it’s in company policy that the customer is not always right. We expressed our disgust with Ceci and she brought the manager over. Apparently the restaurant has received multiple complaints about him.
