Buca di Beppo - Exton Ratings and Reviews
While the food was prepared to Buca's usual high standards, nothing else about the visit would lead me to believe we were dining at a Buca di Beppo. The experience took a downhill turn from the moment we walked in the door. We had to wait over five minutes for a host to even show their face in the lobby. Then, she couldn't find our reservation on the computer, even though we had made it days earlier using OpenTable! I was standing their with the confirmation on my cell phone and she keeps saying we must have made the reservation at a different location! What an idiot!
The service experience wasn't much better. The server made us feel like he didn't want to be there, and could care less about his customers. After his initial check back after our meal was served, we didn't see him again until it was time for dessert. I had been in need of a beverage refill for 15 minutes. Then, it took him forever to come back to get our payment.
Fortunately, the food was prepared excellently, up to Buca di Beppo's high standards and it was very delicious!
We came in Christmas day for dinner, so we were pretty understanding that they wouldn't have their best staff on, but the overall experience was beyond disappointing. We had to ask multiple times for plates and silverware, and our server told us he couldn't find any. Several off duty staff members hung out around the bar, chatting loudly with the bartender. The server for our table was very clearly not experienced at all and asked us several times what we still needed for our table because he wasn't sure. Water for the tea we ordered came out lukewarm so our tea didn't steep. All in all a terrible experience. Would never go back.
The staff was very friendly. Our server, Mindy was terrific. The food was good... we wish the baked ziti had more sauce. Generally, a fun atmosphere.
Would be nice if they offered individual meals for smaller parties.
Down side: someone vacuumed the restaurant as we were eating. The table next to us was left uncleared for half our visit. Then it was cleared but not cleaned or reset for the remainder of our visit.
It was close to empty at 7:00 on a Saturday night. It was snowing but not that bad.
I decided to take my family of four, plus my 89-year-old mother here for Thanksgiving. Everyone kept saying "You're going to an Italian restaurant for Thanksgiving??" like they couldn't believe it. So I started to doubt my choice, but once we were all seated, I could see that we were all enjoying ourselves. They serve family style for Thanksgiving which I prefer, rather than the restaurant deciding what to put on your plate. We got the order for 5 people and there was more than enough food. The turkey came sliced on a platter and there was delicious stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans and gravy. I do not eat gluten so decided to order roasted brussel sprouts on the side and they were amazing. My one daughter also does not eat gluten and ordered a side of the sausage which was very good.
The glasses of wine were nice and big. Our server was efficient and friendly. Everyone was saying how they loved the restaurant so we would definitely consider doing this again next year and also to come back on a regular day. There are lots of good options on the menu and since dishes are served family style you can share and save a bit of money.
Thank you for making our Thanksgiving dinner so special!
I went to Buca Di Beppo for the first time and I was pleasantly surprised. The food was very good, the servers were attentive and the prices were reasonable. We had the penne alla vodka which was very tasty, the chicken Parmesan, also very good and The veal Marsala hitch was very tender and flavorful. I will definitely go back and try this restaurant again.
We've eaten dinner at Buca and celebrated birthdays there since they opened and have always had a good experience. Tonight was different. This was by the slowest service we've EVER had. The restaurant wasn't even close to full but the service was awful. The server was nice and polite but it took 25+ minutes for them to bring out three bowls of ice cream. He left the menus on the table and we stacked our own dishes. We had to ask for bread three times and it took at least 15 minutes to bring two additional glasses of wine. The food was excellent and piping hot so that was a plus. I have no idea what was going on tonight but the overall experience was less than stellar.
Went for my moms birthday dinner. Lots of food, decent pricing, service was very good. Overall we had a great night. We had a party of 4 and had about 4 small plates and had plenty of leftovers (and we can eat!) We would return again especially for a birthday!
Service and atmosphere was excellent. Food was somewhat disappointing as the penna a la vodka was unexpectedly spicy yet the spicy bolognese was not very spicy and was somewhat dry. The ziti, however, was very good and the tiramasu was excellent. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants authentic Italian food , however, if you are not Italian, the food would be acceptable.
Don't bother! Hostess didn't check us in properly so later reservations were seated ahead of us. Had to hunt for help with a large drink spill. They delivered chicken parm and spaghetti w/ no sauce (supposed to be on the side). 15 minutes later we had to hunt down someone to find the rest of our food (sauce for spaghetti & sausage pasta dish). Blamed the manager who was running the food. Food was good but pricey ($27 for a plate of spaghetti as a side for the chicken parm). Will def not be on our go to list of restaurants.
Waitress seemed a little flustered at first, but the manager helped her out and it worked out ok. Within 2 minutes of being at the restaurant we heard the F bomb used by kitchen staff 2-3 times, which was uncomfortable since we had children with us. Food was good and the rest of the experience was fine.
Our waiter was great but they put us in the area where they put families with children and I think it's unfair to expect other customers to tolerate the noise and the disruption of other people's children the parents were oblivious to their children and the disruption they were causing
Truly one of the worst dining experiences of my life. We had a 6:15 reservation for the Pope room. Were seated around 6:25 and then no server came by and it was 6:45. I finally walked over to a waitperson station and asked if we would ever see a waitperson.
The waitress McKenzie was friendly enough and to be fair most of the problems that developed were not her fault. It seems there was an extreme shortage of staff in the kitchen and the food took forever to come out. We are talking hours to come out. The Apple Gorgonzola salad was excellent. The cheesy garlic bread was poor and the pasta entrees were mediocre. The Chicken Parm we ordered came to the table as another chicken entrée.
The manager came to our table and did her best to make things right, knocking some $$ off the check and offering to prepare the chicken parm to go (which they did). Later the manager offered us free desserts for the table either to eat there or to go, but at this point we were all so tried by the experience we just wanted to get out of there.
We always used to enjoy Buca including this location. I guess they have trouble staffing the place on the day after Christmas.
