Buca di Beppo - Livonia Ratings and Reviews
This place is just ok. It seems like there is always a long wait and the food takes a while, even though they are not completely full. A couple of our dishes had way to much red pepper on them. They have typical Italian dishes like lasagna and such, but this place is closer to TGIFridays than fine Italian dining.
We had a group of 10 celebrating a birthday. We ordered a large cheese & pepperoni pizza, large antipasto, large salmon, large spaghetti & meatballs, small veal parmigiana, and large chicken lemonatto. We ordered a bit too much and everyone left with a carry out container. The food was prepared just right and the service was really good for that size group. I would recommend Buca and we'll definitely be back.
The service was very impersonal and indifferent, the restaurant was out of olive oil ( how can an Italian restaurant be out of olive oil?) , and out of lasagna ( again, an Italian restaurant out of lasagna?). The overall food prep and taste was not even close to other Buca restaurants that I've been to.
i've been going to this franchise for years. It will be the last time I go. The food has gone down hill, the prices have increased and the taste/quality leaves this franchise nothing special any longer. Our waiter wasn't very good. Couldn't get any butter for my bread. None to be found.
I had not been to Buca in years, but I had the occasion to host some family that was visiting from another country. They are a very close-knit group and I remembered Buca offered family style eating and I thought that would fit perfectly. I wish I had chosen differently.
1. We were walked through the kitchen, which I am guessing at some point was a point of pride and part of the "show" but now was just a walk through a dirty kitchen as if we were the help. LOL, There was a huge spill of water on the floor that looked as if someone knocked over a bucket and just decided to leave it there. There was some type of solid waste in the water but I pretended not to see it pressed on. . . I should mention I know this wasn't a quick spill and clean up as I was there at least 20 minutes before the rest of my guests and the spill was there the entire time.
2. Our waitress was a sweetheart! She was very kind and accommodating and honestly, her professionalism saved the night.
3. Our pasta was cold, to the point multiple people noticed and said something. As if it had been left out and forgotten on a counter somewhere for a few hours.
4. Our pizza was burnt on the bottom, we had to send it back as it was inedible.
5. The antipasto salad did get rave reviews.
6. I was able to feed 10 ppl with 2 bottles of wine and after dinner drink for about $400
All in all it was almost a disaster, and it was definitely not worth repeating.
Not the best place to go if you're watching your waistline or trying to avoid carbs. Large portions and the way the food is prepared do not contribute to a lot of healthy choices. That said, this is a good way to share hearty Italian food with a tableful of friends and family.
Garlic cheese bread had a strange taste (son thought it smelled and tasted like chlorine). Portions are large but some items have very little flavor. Feel it is way overpriced and that there should be an option for individual portions (not just family style where you can only afford 1 or 2 items at most). Also, I had the rasberry vodka lemonaide which was pictured and described as having fresh rasberries...there were none and in fact it tasted like kool-aide. Not a fan.
A reservation was made and it took us 25 minutes to get a table. The hostess told us on the way to our table that it would be 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours from the time the kitchen gets our ticket to be served our food because they were running behind.
Once we were sat we waited 15 more minutes and no one greeted us so we walked out. What a waste of time.
We did not have a good dining experience. Our food took a lot of time to come out of the kitchen and when we got it the food was either over cooked and our chicken dish the meat was raw.
We were celebrating a family birthday too. We arrived at 6:15 and finally left at 8:45am with most of our food in carry outs after they recooked everything.
Ordered Bruchetta, was served in a giant Margarita bowl with cold garlic toast around the edges. Big disappointment as I've had real bruchetta (served like a pizza) from the same place years ago that was something I've remembered fondly for ten years, and was looking forward to having again. Also ordered the Salmon steaks which were served without any sides or garnish (I get it's family style, but some options for two would be nice). The salmon was lukewarm and lacked any salt or seasoning.
Total was $40 and we left hungry and very dissatisfied.
Our party arrived at 1:00 pm to miss the lunch crowd and our waitress didn't appear to be busy, however, she was not very attentive. At times we found ourselves looking for her to to come by and provide service. We had to ask for the lunch menu, as we were given dinner menus. We had multiple questions about the menu and she did know it well--we had to challenge one of her answers related to pricing. We ordered a basket of garlic bread and after we ate most of it, she brings more bread, adding it to the to first basket, advising we were suppose to get another quarter of a loaf on the initial delivery. One person wanted to take home a lunch portion of chicken saltimbuca for her husband, but was advised it was not on the lunch menu, so she had to opt for something else. Overall, we were not impressed with the service.
Its about 50/50 at buca's..been to both in detroit area multiple times and for some reason they struggle with consistency..manager's at both are aweful and not qualified..simply lack the skills to take care of issues..latest issue being the pizza was brought undercooked..way undercooked and this after they fogot to bring it the first time. Manager basically said o well..unbelievable.
