We ordered the small portions which are supposed to feed 2-3 people. Holy cow!!!! At least the lasagna portion was enough to feed about 5-6 people. It was super yummy! Plus the service was exceptional! Our server was very knowledgeable, attentive, and pleasant. Will definitely be back!

The calamari were fried properly (unlike the previous time) and the eggplant parmigiana was very good. Well done!

It is rare for me to give this rating to any restaurant and in particular to Buca di Beppo where I have dined 15 or 20 times in the past 6 years.
This time, my favorite dish: fried calamari, was inedible and not just once but twice:
The first time it was full of cayenne pepper and that made it impossible to eat.
The server, Betsy, told us that the same had happened the day before (my wife and I, both thought it was unusual, as it had never been so spicy before in any of our visits), she took the calamari away and told us they would be duly replaced.
About 15 minutes later another order of calamari was delivered by Betsy, who being busy with another table, left promptly before we could express our dismay to what had been delivered. The calamari were burnt black and impossible to eat, so much so that when Rainy, the Manager that we requested to speak to, eventually showed up, in picking up one of the "baby octopus" that were part of the calamari order, one of the tentacles fell off the rest of the body.
Never in my life and I am 70 years old, I have seen food coming out of the kitchen and served to customers with such a lack of cure and and care for the customers.
Rainy witnessed the matter and was apologetic, but I feel that management should consider a different job for whoever in the kitchen was responsible for the problems experienced.

The staff was friendly and very attentive however the seasoning and quality of the food was just a bit off. I am a fan of this establishment so I am a bit upset about this however it wasn’t all of the dishes that suffered and honestly it was most likely a prep issue.

Weird being here Christmas Eve and hardly anyone here. The service was great and our food was delicious. We had spaghetti and meatballs and the chicken cannelloni. I had my birthday coupon for sundae so we had that as well. Both mom and I have near Christmas birthdays. Would recommend to others.

I always go usually with just my son and i always go when i get my coupons on email well this time they tell me I can't use my coupon on the seasonal items and that is not specified on the coupon. So I'm wondering since because of this coronavirus going on they are not doing so well they gotta get me with not giving me my discount?

We went for Valentine’s Day and to have the lasagna dinner special. They were a bit understaffed and they were late sitting us for the reservation. The food was terrific as it usually it as this restaurant but the service was lacking. They didn’t give us bread when we sat down and it took an hour to bring us our food. Overall it was worth the trip I just wished they had though ahead about how busy it was going to be.

Had not been back to this restaurant in several years. My previous experience was positive. This one could only be described as fair. My wine pour was slightly skimpy, my husband’s cocktail was the same. We ordered a dish that was listed as “new” on the menu, braised short ribs over pasta, that should have been described as flavorless pasta with a touch of short ribs added. There was more than plenty for both of us, and we took home the leftovers, primarily so we could doctor the dish up and add some flavor. Disappointing.

We’ve been coming to Buca for 10 years or more and love it.. until recently.. last several times everything has been off.. one day the salad.. chopped anti pasta .. $25 salad for a small u expect the meat and cheese it normally comes with.. missing.. the manager did try again but something was still off.. chicken Marsala.. forget it.. don’t try it .. this time the pizza .. barely cooked crust was still white.. cheese not even melted.. I’m not sure if they changed the cheese mixture or just didn’t cook it long enough.. I’m so disappointed...

Waitress got our order mixed up. She fixed it, but left us alone and we needed drink refills. She walked all around us, but never checked on us. Asked her twice for sweetener. Brought us more marinara; but brought us only a little bit. Food was good, but spaghetti was not hot. Always enjoy the spaghetti and meatballs. We’ll enjoy our leftovers because we will heat it up in the microwave.
