Even with a reservation we had to wait an additional 20 mins to be seated and another couple without a reservation went in before us so are making reservations pointless? Food was delicious no complaint. Service was terrible hostess had her thumb in her mouth several times i even caught her doing that while taking some people to their seats. Waiter took a while to get to us being that he was also the bartender. While waiting in the "lobby" the carry out section was overcrowded. We were seated by the bar when we asked not to therefore it was a pretty loud night being that the bar patrons were having a good time. Buca is a nice place to dine im just not sure if ill come back to this establishment. seems it needs better management. I'll stick to driving to DC

All was ok, average experience but was very dirty under the table, so we asked to change the table but it is unacceptable in general and sofa was horribly torn.

Most of the food was excellent - antipasto salad, chicken saltimbocca, rigatoni al forno (so much crunchy prosciutto, pepperoni, and spicy italian sausage) were so delicious and full of flavor and cooked to perfection. On the other hand, the alfredo supremo was HORRIBLE, do not order - dry and bland. The gelato was okay, all the flavors (pistachio, raspberry and maybe vanilla) were all different textures. The pistachio was the best texture and flavor - closest resemblance to gelato. The raspberry seemed more like a super tart sorbet. The vanilla one was icy - like freezer burn.

I made the reservation in the afternoon
We were assigned to the Pope table and it was freezing cold
The waitress said “sorry, the HVAC hasn’t worked all day”
Why did you take reservations when the HVAC was not working?
Awful experience, worst time at Bucca’s

A potentially good family meal was tarnished by poor service, lack of attention to detail, and unwillingness of the staff to respond to customer complaint. An erroneously delivered meal (subsequently touched by guests at another table) was re-delivered to us and it began the downturn of events. Buca di Beppo is made of more but it has turned us away from this location unhappy and probably unwilling to return for sometime. The experience was in stark contrast to the one we had at the DC location.

- We were unable to contact the restaurant via phone. Upon inquiring we were told that their system is not working and did not show any desire to get it fixed!
- The server did not understand out special request and brought incorrect item.
- They restaurant was out of Tiramisu dessert (second time in a month).
- With coffee order only coffee was served we had to ask separately for cream and sugar and spoon.
BUCA DI BEPPO USED TO BE MUCH BETTER THAN THIS BUT NOW IT IS NOTICEBLY SLIDING DOWN ON SERVICE AND FOOD QUALITY.

This was a before Christmas family get-together. 11 people in our group. Saturday at 3:30-5:30 . We knew that this would be a slower time, which meant we had a room to ourselves which was really nice. Everyone enjoyed their food & we got excellent service from our Server. (I wish I could remember his name......but he was great!).

I think this restaurant is a great choice for groups. We found dishes that 2-3 people wanted to share & then passed around all the leftovers afterwards.

The restaurant let us stay & visit with each other as long as we wanted. It was nice, quiet & unhurried! I guess that will vary with the date & time, but that was our experience.

We will do it again next year!!

Buca is always a family favorite, though also a great place for a couple's happy hour. I've never been disappointed by the service nor by the food/drinks.

Was a little dissappointed with portion size. We were advised by the server that what we selected had no pasta. Do find the family style of only multi-person portions sometimes difficult for just 2 people.

Unfortunately, this was not a pleasant experience. My husband and I had a special early anniversary dinner planned and we had made reservations. We were seated at a two top and the dinner was off to a good start. A small Calamari appetizer was ok to taste but way over priced. As our dinner was being prepared, a large party of at least 30 came in with only 8 out of the total being the adults. Mayhem ensued. They were loud, screaming, throwing, straws, running around, jumping at their tables and it was awful. The parents were not supervising the children at all. The manager came out once to check but said we couldn't be moved Bc "we were full all night" Another table also complained to no avail. Dinner ruined. When we left. There were many tables open and available in quiet areas. Just not sure why it was handled that way. Some of the wait staff apologized including our waitress but others laughed at us as we left. By the way our bill was over 80 dollars without alcohol. We were so disappointed. We will not be back.

The kitchen had problems on Saturday night. It took longer than usual to get food. The food came out of the requested sequence for the large group (10) seated next to us. The manager did come to their aid to calm their anger. We like Buca, but they need to fix these problems.

The food was good as always. We arrived early and were promptly seated. There were not that many people there for dinner yet. However, it took an extraordinary amount of time to get the main part of our order. It was long enough I left the table to hunt out the waiter. The salad was outstanding as was the chicken saltimbocca chicken. The brussel sprouts looked great on the menu but were drier that we expected. We mentioned it to the waiter and he did take it off the check. Overall a nice dinner.

Still one of Gaithersburg's little secrets.
Service was good, food was just what we wanted and the value was great.

Hope it doesn't keep itself a secret too long.....

I guess family style is just not our style as we each prefer ordering individual servings to suit our tastes. Nothing remarkable about the food but the decor is certainly Italian. Service was very good. Did not appreciate the staff loudly clinking table settings nor cleaning the floor while we ate.

We went to Buca Di Beppo for my aunts birthday dinner. We arrived on time for our reservation and we're immediately seated for dinner, it took the waiter about 10-15 minutes to come to take drink orders which was fine because we were deciding what everyone was going to eat. Once we places drink orders the waiter disappeared when we were ready to place food order. This seemed to be a common thing as we continually had to ask another waiter walking by to find our waiter. I personally don't think the food was worth the price & they may want to update the pricing that they show because $30 and under is not an ideal price or estimate because everything is sold a la carte

This is usually a popular and reliable family friendly chain restaurant. Although our waitress was most pleasant and was hustling, service was very slow Saturday night. Even though, it was less busy than usual. Even paying our bill was a challenge. Perhaps it was under-staffing? Management needs to fix this.

Went for a birthday dinner, even put that it was for a birthday dinner when making the reservation, told the waitress we were there for a birthday. Not a single happy birthday, dessert, nothing!!! Waitress forgot to even put in our appetizer then proceeded to blandly apologize for not doing so. Food was so good but the service was horrible!!! I will never go back to that Buca ever!!!
