Buca di Beppo - Eden Prairie Ratings and Reviews
Ordered salad and appetizer, main dish came out first and they didn’t take the main back when asked twice. Also, ordered a bottle of wine with the intent to take it home after having a glass each. They opened the bottle away from the table and didn’t bring the cork back so we couldn’t take it with us.
If you make a reservation less than two hours before your meal, they won't honor it and will blame open table for technical problems. I don't really care who's fault it is, it is a bad customer experience to arrive at a restaurant you wouldn't have gone to without a reservation, and told you would have to wait 45 minutes in the very cold waiting area.
So, if it is less than the hours until you want to eat, call. Don't use open table.
A dozen of my family had Thanksgiving dinner here, so it was likely more crowded than usual. This made the noise level probably much higher than usual as well. The food was great (traditional Thanksgiving meal), and a couple of people in our party ordered Italian off the menu and said it was great as well. My only criticism is that we requested a high chair several times, but one was never brought to us. It caused them to have to leave early as it was not possible to keep the 13 month old confined without it.
My family and I visited Buca on a Saturday evening. We had a reservation for a booth but were told that no booths were available. After being seated, our waiter took our drink order and seemed to disappear. When returning with waters and sodas for our children, we were told our wine would be right out...that did not happen. In fact, we had to flag our waiter down to remind him. We eventually ordered and had a lengthy wait for our food. After eating our meal, we again had to flag the waiter down to ask for a box and the check. We even sent a gift card and credit card with him to speed up the process. Again, he disappeared. It was exactly 16 minutes later when he returned to tell us that only his manager could approve the gift card, and she was very busy. We waited, with a 10 and 7 year old eagerly wanting to leave. Finally, we asked to speak to the manager after another 10 minutes. Our check arrived just before the manager came to our table. For some reason, there was no explanation for the gift card approval delay, but the manager took $20 off our bill...too little too late. Needless to say, my family will not be visiting Buca in Eden Prairie any time soon. The staff seems to be more focused on singing Happy Birthday to diners celebrating a special day than attending to the tables. I also feel that for a Saturday evening, there were not enough staff.
Service wasn’t as good as usual.
Our server started out ok but after our food came, she rarely followed up and didn’t clear our dinner plates even when dessert was served. She didn’t return for water refills and didn’t in general seem to be interested in us. Disappointing.
Food was great as usual.
Disappointing visit after not eating at Buca for a while. Ran out of arugula (what Italian restaurant runs out of arugula at 6:00pm on a Sat night?) for a new style pizza and put way too much balsamic vinegar on the pizza with no greens to counter it. ( Also, as we left through the great kitchen entry-way, we watched the hostess spreading parsley on the meals with her bare hands. Just doesn't seem very sanitary to greet people, handle menus and who knows what else - and food! Has always one of my favorite restaurants and now not sure we'll go back.
Went for my moms birthday. Food was good, kind of expensive for pasta...service was subpar, barely saw our waiter, especially for a non busy Tuesday night. They sang their own happy birthday song, which was fun, and they have pretty big portions, but overall, nothing overly special.
Anniversary. But, $40.00 dollars for 2 beers and an
average size sausage pizza? I mean it !?! Two GLASSES
of beer, that should have cost maybe $3.50 each, but,
$6.00 each? Really ! Waitress didn't mention the price
She had just started working at Buca and didn't have
all the answers yet, but , $ 6.00 for a glass of beer ??
The pizza was of average size and so was the quality
WE won't be back Soooo many other great places to go
for way less money. How do we know? Because we have
dined all over the country and even in California they have
better prices. I'd suggest you price your items better or
eventually not get repeat customers. Totally disappointed
for our anniversary. 😩😢
when reservations are made, they need to tell people to bring their ID's or they will not served.
had to got to the manager to get my 55 yr old a glass of wine as she had no id that night. it was mothers birthday and the night started off by have the server tell her she could not have a glass.
Not against the policy, just need to be forewarned. carded my 88 year old mother. is it really necessary.
Everything was wonderful until we left. Upon leaving there were no less than 20 large spiders hanging in front of the restaurant over the door. After a wonderful evening it was disgusting and disturbing to see so many spiders hanging down from the sign and door and landing on customers.
We pulled up to see a Delivery truck taking up spaces in the parking lot which should be 'reserved' for customers. There was also a Buca truck (for food/online deliveries?) and another vehicle with someone sitting in it parked right in front of the main entrance, so we had to walk around them.... Shouldn't all these vehicles be parked out of the way in order to accommodate paying customers? For the most part the experience once we got inside was fine. Our server accommodated us and the food was great, actually it's the food that saves this Buca location every time as the service can be either really good, or really bad.
Really awful service. Server came by maybe every 20 minutes at best. Salad served after the entrees, appetizers were really late. Good food, really poor service overall. The restaurant didn't seem too busy so that was not an excuse. Will go elsewhere next time.
It started with being out of the house wine. This was followed by slow service and poor timing of the appetizer and entrees. The calamari was about the worst I've ever had. I've had it in the past at Buca and it was much better. It was tough and very fishy tasting and they forgot the marinara for dipping. The entrees were good. As we finished the service became slower and we waited a while for the bill and dishes to get cleared. The prices also seem to have risen. My family really likes Buca but this was not a very good experience and it will be a long while until we return.
We had a great time celebrating my daughter's 14th Birthday. We were a large group and the service and food were fantastic. My only gripe is that we had to wait an extra 15-20 minutes beyond our reservation time to be seated. Other than that, a fun night for all!
Horrible dinner at Buca. They don't have the ability to delay or stop accepting online dinner orders. As a result, it took over 90 minutes for dinner to be served.
Stay way from Buca until they fix their online ordering system so that it doesn't impact diners visiting the restaurant. Even the manager was embarrassed by the crappy performance of their kitchen.
