This was our family’s first visit. The dishes we had were amazing. If we go again we may ask if there is an option to get additional sauce. We had manicotti and there was only enough sauce for half of the family sized plate. Other than that one thing everything else was great, and we had a very sweet and helpful server.

Overall good experience. It took about 15 minutes to get seated even with a reservation. Appetizer came quickly but the main course took a bit to come out.

I always enjoy my visits to this restaurant; I tell other people about it all the time. I don't drink, so I can't comment on the drinks. The only concern by me and the other person (her first visit) was that it was freezing cold. She kept trying to get warm. Normally they have the heat on.

Not our best experience here. It had been a few years since I had been. Our server says he had 16 years experience, doing what I am not sure. We had a party of 8 and to ask to "hand down" everything instead of actually serving each person is lazy and to me unprofessional, set the water and plates in front of the patron. Food was OK, three of the dishes were cool, not cold but cool. I think they sat on the pass a little too long. There was too much time between each course, It was also about 15 minutes from the time I gave him my CC to the time he returned. Things could have been smoother, it was OK because we had big group. But, it could have been better, much better.

Horrible. Disgraceful service. No water refills offered in two hours. . Look forward to cleaning your own table to make room for entree. Less than average food. Apparently not allowed to take leftovers home. Leftovers cleared and never brought back. There are many choices on the Plaza. Pick anything else.

This was not a good experience. We have been here many times, but it had been a few years. The service was terrible (appetizer, salad, and entrees basically arrived at within minutes of each other), we were barely checked on, and there was a loud crying baby next to us. We will most likely not return.

It was very noisy and service was very slow. With it being the first weekend in December and the beginning of the holiday season, you would think Buca’s management would know to have a full staff to assure good service for it’s customers. We probably will not return again at this time of year!

We ordered our favorite salad (apple gorgonzola) and prosciutto stuffed chicken and penne diablo. It is best to remember that large orders of pasta are very large. We ended up taking home about 2/3 of our pasta. The chicken was delicious! Our favorite. We ate mid-afternoon so the restaurant was nearly empty and quiet. Our only complaint was that the area we were seated in was very cold. We mentioned it to a server and the temp was regulated. A fun restaurant to go to with a group.

This was the third time I had eaten at Buca di Beppo, the second time at their Kansas City Plaza location. The venue is visually spectacular, the entire restaurant covered from floor to ceiling with items from Italy. The mix of comic and traditional artwork exemplify Buca's atmosphere: sincere and lighthearted. Dates, families, friends, and parties are comfortably served in their basement restaurant.
My experience with Buca di Beppo has given me confidence in the quality of their meals and I wholeheartedly recommend their menu to anybody for any occasion. The portions are as big as the flavors, the prices are fair, and the presentation well-done. I recommend their Antipasti salad, veal marinara, and spicy chicken rigatoni.

It was good. I’m just not the biggest fan of making a reservation and still having to wait 15 minutes to be seated. We walked past more empty tables than full so not getting seated was just obnoxious. Then we (2 people) were seated at a very large table for 6. Then we waited literally 15 minutes for a server to come over and even greet us. Once he did, however, everything was great. The night just didn’t have the smoothest start. The food was good. Drinks were good. I probably won’t return just because I didn’t think the prices were in line with the quality. But I’d recommend everyone try it at least once. It’s just one of those places that once is enough.

Initial impression walking in isn’t great. Dark and dirty feeling. Smell of a sewage issue in the bar area where you must pass through to get to any other dining area. And we were sat there to dine. We got moved after complaining of the smell. Moved us to another dining area next to an emergency exit where a fella was cleaning a table very loudly. Throwing dishes in the pan. Table of 20 teenage girls screeching and having fun. Not their fault. Mood was ruined by than so we left before dining. Not a great experience. The menu is not friendly to a couple in my opinion either. Family dining style with huge portions doesn’t work for 2 people wanting different things.

The food was good. Would have liked more vegan options. The server was not very attentive. We had to continueously remind him to remove dishes from our table and he never offered to top off our water glasses. He wasn't very knowledgeable of the menu items and/or it's ingredients. His response was just "I don't know". We had to prompt him to go ask someone, which he did hesitantly, if really at all. We were celebrating a birthday, and we asked if the birthday girl was to receive a free dessert, which he replied "no". I have since discovered that the restaurant does give free ice cream and cake if desired. I was very disappointed with the service we received.

We were celebrating a birthday. The food was good but the service was very bad. Our server disappeared frequently and servered cold coffee twice before deciding to make a new pot. She did not give us plates with the family style food. We got the plates ourselves and had to ask for grated cheese which came in a small jar instead of being fresh and grated at the table.

Not a place for foodies! Service was excellent, staff was friendly, but food was sub-par. The restaurant has a stuffy feel, and is basically feels like a maze. The food is intended to be family-style, meaning each plate feeds 3-6 people--great for large groups, not good for dates. Additionally, food was not authentic Italian, and not very high quality (if you want inauthentic Italian, go to Olive Garden instead). We ordered the Quattro al Forno (mix of stuffed pastas; lots of cheese, not very good flavor), Prosciutto-stuffed Chicken (probably our favorite, but overdone), green beans side (limp and overcooked), and mozzarella garlic bread (good, but very greasy). Bottom line: better for large groups, not dates, and definitely not for foodies.
