Food was great, you have to really know that the portions are big so order small olif you don't eat too much. Sangria is delicious as well as the tiramisu

Whole family enjoyed the food! If any needs of improvement, offer the regular bread that normally is put out while we are waiting for main entre & appetizer..

We got the bread, and enjoyed the food! Waitress kept tabs on us and was super great in refilling our drinks!

Very noisy and loud place! I felt comfortable that my kids could talk and not bother any one! Had family visiting and they are great at accommodating groups! Large portions made great for our group to share! I would come again but only if I was with a group as the potions are just too big for our family of 4 on the regular.

It has been some time since we were at Buca and it was a quiet day for the restaurant. We had 3 adults and 1 child (7 years old). The menu format had changed since our last visit with the addition of the per person charge besides the choice of small and large. We ordered a small salad, a small spaghetti and meatballs, a large calimari and a large chicken parmigiana. With 2 ice teas and 1 fruit punch our bill was $153 before tip. Sorry that's a little pricey even for me and we won't be returning anytime soon at those prices.

Biggest problem is the limitation resulting from the family-style service, which requires portions sufficient for 3 or 5. This means a party of two must have the same thing. We had chicken marsala, which came with loads of mushrooms but had a sweet sauce rather than the normal mushroom sauce. Neither of us could stand it.

We got our itemized receipt... said about $134 (don't know the exact amount), our server Kim ran our cards (we had it split evenly between 2 cards)... and all of a sudden each card was charged $73 and some change. I'm confused. $134 divided by 2 should be $67. Thinking to myself... it's wrong. I'm looking for my itemized receipt and it's no where to be found (she didn't give it to us with our credit card slips). We don't know where our server went so we flag a hostess down, asked for a itemized receipt and a different server gave it to us. I noticed that we were charged for a Sauza Blue Tequila that was $11.99 that we definitely did not order. Someone else gets our server for us, she stops by and looks at the receipt and gives us the story about mixing up tables. We understand that kind of thing happens but instead of fixing our check and fixing what we got charged for she puts down a $10 dollar bill and asked if that fixes the problem.... ummm...

Ka Moana luau was canceled on Dec.25 due to bad weather.. and they did not bother to notify us. Thus, we found ourselves at 5 pm on Christmas night, $160 in the hole for cab fare to the failed luau, our plans dashed and our children sad and disappointed. Nearly every restaurant in Waikiki was booked by that hour.. but there was an opening at Buca di Beppo which we grabbed. The food was SO good and our server, John, was SO amazing!! We were seated timely and our food came out quickly, despite the restaurant being crazy busy. John was entertaining and beyond friendly and really salvaged our night. We had a wonderful (though unexpected) Italian family-style Christmas dinner of fried mozzarella (to die for!), mouth-watering baked ziti and absolutely delicious sausage. We went back to our hotel with full tummies and big smiles. Buca di Beppo is my new favorite.

I appreciate that they were open on Christmas since we lost power. With that being said, we didn’t really have good service, one our appetizers never came out, we didn’t receive bread until our meal came out. The family next to us arrived after us, ordered after us, they got bread prior to their meal, and got their meals well before us.

I want to say that the restaurant was busy however, we saw others receiving better service during the same time.

Food was decent. Everything is family style so they are making large portions that make it like cafeteria food but they do it a little better than a cafeteria. Service was better than average. I have 3 kids that don't like the same kind of food. There is nothing on the menu that feeds just one so a family of 5 has to agree upon 2 things to eat. That is nearly impossible in my family. Then to make things worse we were with 9 others that we didn't know well so it was awkward to say what you wanted because nobody wants to be the greedy one. The server should have helped with the order more because we were paralyzed. I will say that the portion sizes are big. We ordered about 5 large dishes and we barely ate 75 percent of it between 14 of us. So although we had plenty of food between 14 of us there were only 5 different dishes ordered. When have you ever gone out with even 10 people and only 5 dishes are ordered. I guarantee that many people didn't get to eat what they wanted. I'd prefer Olive garden where I can order what I want plus the bread sticks are better.

Definitely not the place to go for a holiday meal. They only had a limited menu for Christmas Eve which they did not disclose at the time of reservation. Their delicious chicken marsala, not being served. They were out of lasagna and said it would be ready in an hour. This was for a 530 reservation. What?!! It’s one of your signature dishes who runs out of it at 530?!?! Service was great but food came to the table with timing issues. Garlic bread arrived like 20 minutes after the salad came out. Also one of the pasta dishes (Baked Ziti) basically had NO sauce. We had to ask for more. I’ve been to other Buca’s and to this location once before. They also misrepresented the price of the meal with a tiny asterisk and small print. Likely won’t be going to this location ever again, which is a shame because in the past our family really enjoyed meals at Buca di Beppo.

Even when you have a reservation you’ll wait at least 15 minutes to be seated, happens every time I go there.
I’ve been here on a less crowded day and the food was way better. This time it was VERY crowded, VERY loud, VERY cold, and the food, although came out fast, seemed very rushed, dry and lacked taste. I suggest avoiding this place during holidays and weekends. Weekdays seem less crowded from my experience.
Also there was a photographer who came to take photos and said it was for free, it was not free, aside from on TINY photo you could barely see.

Service was terrible. Meal came before appetizers even after the waiter said it would come before. Drinks had to be constantly reminded to the waiter to bring. Wine was overpriced. Special discounts had to be twice corrected on bill. We had to scream to each other to talk because it was so loud. Stuffed chicken was dry and artichoke dip tasted sour. Won’t return or recommend. To top off the night, our party of 7 all had sore stomachs. Terrible experience for a special night.
