Awesome Food , Large amount of food .................... the place to eat Italian food
Delicious food and dessert. Staff very accommodating for first timers, and to my girlfriend.
It was a great night!!
Service was bad, manger not helpful in getting server to bring to go box, we had to find them and get ourself
Although we had made a reservation nearly a month in advance we waited over 30 minutes to be seated. The restaurant appeared to be understaffed. Food was fine and atmosphere was good.
Have enjoyed many meals here. The food is always good and the service is usually excellent. My wife and I find the photos located throughout the restaurant very interesting.
Buca is always fun for a special night out. We celebrated my daughter's 21st birthday there, and they treated her to a dessert and the requisite embarrassing song. : ) Very nice. My husband and son LOVED their ravioli with meat sauce, and our tortellini was good, but a bit dry. It's a lot of food, yes, but I think a tad overpriced for pasta. Still, we'll never stop going!
We were greatly warmly and escorted to our seats not long after we sat in the waiting room. Our server was not only helpful, but available for us to call upon them if we needed anything. The food came out about 15 minutes after we sat down, hot and fresh. The servings were large, as usual at Buca Di Beppo. Upon leaving we were greeted by almost every employee with a “happy you came” or “come again” which, felt genuine, although I’m sure they are encouraged to do so by their management. Overall, it was a good experience.
This is a great atmosphere for groups and a reasonably priced option.
Fun place! Food was good and waitress really friendly and attentive! Overall a good experience!
We love Buca! Good food, great for families. However, they are never on time with reservations, we always have to wait even with a reservation
Went to Bucca for a Friday night dinner and was everything about the meal was poor. Sat us for a table for two in the very back corner by the emergency exit. The room was being prepared for a group of 40-50 so our server was more concerned with setting up than attending to his only other table. Both me and my fiancée got glasses of wine with dinner but took 10-15 minutes to receive them. Placed our order for a pizza and the baked ziti. The baked ziti came out first within 15 minutes and was pleased with the temperature and taste of the food but never received the pizza. Had to ask another waiter to get us bread because it was never brought to us since being there...then checked on the pizza and it was never put in....was asked if we wanted to cancel or keep the order. Only positive was when we finally received the pizza it was comped off of our ticket. Overall subpar experience and no real reason to come back.
We had a great dinner celebrating my daughters 7th birthday.
We ordered our food at 7:20 and did not receive it until 8:45. We were offered a free dessert to compensate. WOW. Who wants dessert after waiting so late to eat.
Terrible service. Waiter was friendly but not attentive at all. Never offered to refill waters.
Wonderful food, great service & price!
We really enjoyed the food, it just felt rather expensive for the amount of food we got. $130 with tip for 4 people to eat a salad, pasta, and one shared dessert with no alcohol for everyone.
Our server, Tia, was great and the food was equally great! Our family had a great time, and left satisfied.
We have gone to Buca the last 3 years for NYE in KC to start a new family tradition. This year the service was absolutely horrible and we will likely never go back. It's unfortunate b/c in the past we have enjoyed the environment and food, but this year we think the service staff was either drunk, on drugs, or just plain lazy. We waited nearly 30 minutes for a glass of Wine and a Mountain Dew, seeing our waitress (who was very unkept) once every 25 minutes (if we were luck). I love the plaza area but will look to resuming our family traditions at a more appetizing and friendly restaurant. I really hate to see Buca go down the tubes, but it has. I suspect it will be another failed plaza restaurant in the coming years.
We took our kids there for New Year’s Eve, and everyone loved it! We ordered way too much food, the small portions of everything would have been enough to share.
Had a very bad experience with them. Despite our reservation we had to wait to be seated because they were busy. Our entree was switched from Eggplant parmigiana to Veal Parmigiana after waiting very long for it to show up. Then the make up dish (ie paid for the entire meal) wasn’t well done. I am not going back.
Very good food with good service, unfortunately it was served on a outdoor picnic table style tablecloth with cheap paper napkins. For the price of the entrees, you might expect a bit better atmosphere without the rock concert loud setting.
Celebrating an engagement!
Family get together, very easy for everyone to talk and enjoy each other’s company without being in the same room as 50 other people.
Nice dinner with my adult children for Christmas. Everyone enjoyed the meal and three small plates for five people meant their was lots to take home. Always love the ambience at Buca’s and it was early evening so the noise level was unusually low. Great food and service as well.
Had a great experience here on Christmas Day. Had a reservation and was seated quickly. The wait staff was attentive and polite. Drinks were promptly refilled and we were checked on several times. We had the Fettuccini Alfredo and the stuffed chicken breasts. Both were delicious!!!! If you love garlic, go for the garlic bread too!!
Not an insanely gourmet experience, but good food and good service. Make a reservation though, otherwise you’ll find yourself with a lot of time to wait.
Our Christmas Day tradition and this year didn’t dissappoint. Seated and served quickly. All food was delicious and our server was great. Looking forward to next year.
This place never disappoints, crew are A1 service providers.
Our group of 7 ate here for lunch on Christmas Day. It was packed! I didn’t think service or food would be very good, but boy, was I wrong! Service was excellent, including constantly filling water glasses. Probably some of the best calamari I have had. If we can get reservations for next year, this will be our “go to” spot. Outstanding!!
Great Christmas Eve dinner choice. Fun family dining experience, friendly staff and great food. Frank did a great job serving us. Will definitely be back.
Our family enjoyed a Christmas Even dinner at Buca di Beppo, as we have for years. It is a tradition. Great food and an enjoyable atmosphere, as always. The service was a little slow this time, but it was Christmas Eve and the placed was packed, so that is understandable; ordinarily the service is excellent. We recommend, especially for groups.
Every Christmas Eve a group of us get together for a nice dinner out. This year we chose Bucca De Beppo. They cater to groups and the entrees are designed to be split between 3-5 people. Being that it was the holidays they had a revised menu with fewer choices, but everyone a found a great choice. Of course it was loud, but that is fine. The waitstaff were in top of our every need and energized and friendly.
Waitress was extremely slow. Did not feel drinks timely, did not clear the salad dishes, did not return a request for additional sauce. Charged my two kids lemonade as alcoholic drinks $11 each. Overall experience was not enjoyable. Food was not worth the poor setting and costs. Won’t be returning. Manager blew off my complaints as “waitress was having a bad day”.
Our waiter, Frank, took very good care of us. The food was excellent!
Pros: Great food and service.
Cons: A 6:30 reservation got us seated at 6:55. Crying baby in a cozy environment.
We had a reservation for my husband’s birthday dinner. Aside from a little wait at the hostess stand, and a rather loud table next to us, we had a great evening. The manager was kind and honored the birthday dessert even though the coupon didn’t come to my inbox in time.
Meatballs live up to the hype! The meatball appetizer, mozzarella/garlic bread and two small plates was more than enough food for 4. Fun, friendly ambiance.
They were packed when we got there, however they still sat us at our reserved kitchen table for an amazing evening ask for trevor fri and sat nights, he is the vest server you will have.
