We went last Saturday to celebrate my husband’s birthday. His brother and sister and their spouses were also with us. Naturally we had to catch up with all the gossip and the waitress did not rush us all. We didn’t order our entree until after the appetizer and salad. We were still not rushed. The fried mozzarella was excellent, salad delicious. My favorite, the chicken Marsala, didn’t disappoint, wish I knew how to make their sauce! We also had ravioli and shrimp Parmesan, both were delicious. The birthday song was great along with the lit candles on the candelabra. No one can make tiramisu like Buca di Beppo. One order was enough for the six of us. Buca di Beppo is our favorite restaurant for family get togethers and celebrations.

Service was absolutely horrible. Finally got all of our drinks one hour and 10 minutes after sitting down! Salad took 50 minutes to be brought out. All but two people finally got their entrees but rest of table finished before they got their order. Managers didn't even seem concerned although we had to get up to find our waiter three times!

Gave this place another try. Again my salad plates were hot and the food came on very hot plates, but food was luke warm. Cheese on top of lasagna not melted. I hate giving bad reviews but i cant come up with a good food review. Well The chopped antipasto was good.

The kids used to love going here so we went back for nostalgia. It’s so dirty and disgusting that I am surprised it has not been closed down. The food was low quality and very poorly prepared. There was at least a cup of water at the bottom of the spaghetti!

I could give tens of examples of things that were just wrong but if you go there you will see them for yourself and like me you will never go back!

Gosh, I was here last month and everything was terrific. This visit, not so much. Our waiter was marginal at best. Very slow and mumbled when he spoke. Took forever to have our order placed. Salad was good, but pizza was overcooked. The waiter served our pizza and said, "wow, it's overcooked, do you want another one"? We chose to eat it because we couldn't wait another 45 minutes for a new one. Then, my husband asked for a refill on his iced tea. The waiter brought him just that...a glass of warm iced tea...NO ICE. When he set it on the table he said, "wow, there's no ice in the glass". Really???

Would not revisit. Restaurant was filthy upon arrival. Waited over an hour for our food and chicken was like rubber. Couldn’t cut into some pieces of the chicken. Marinara pasta was a bowl of water. All very disappointing.

I must start with the positive. Both food quality and service were excellent. Hostess staff was friendly. The place was actually very run down. Other than the entertaining pictures all over the walls, it was really a disappointing experience. The walls needed paint, the carpet was in bad shape and the ladies bathroom was just gross. I’m torn on going back again. Maybe a carry out option only.

Great night at Buca. We had to make reservations for 10 at the last minute, and Buca took care of us without any issues. There happened to be another large party, so our food took a while to come out but our server was continually checking on us and apologetic. We will definitely be back!

Service was slow. The pizza was burnt around the edge too much. The bathroom reeked of some awful sewer smell or something and there were no paper towels. I like Buca, but this was a very disappointing meal experience.

The last few times we've been to Buca's, the service and food were lacking. Last night, we actually had the BEST service ever and the food was terrific. Our waiter, Zachary, was outstanding. The food was served timely, hot and the way it's pictured on the menu. BRAVO!

Great place for larger groups who get along and can share. Food is served family style, so ordering several different things makes for a lot of variety for everyone. We ordered two large entries and one small entree for eight people plus a large apple gorgonzola salad and soft drinks. I think it came out to around $20 per person before tip.

Waitress was super nice but this was the third visit in a row where the kitchen took a very long time and forgot to prepare things we ordered. They are very good about not charging you and giving free food when that occurs but i would rather they improve service so the experience is better.

Food was consistent with a chain -- not bad but not great either. Their claim to fame is family style dining. Considering how poor the service was (we got out appetizer after we had already started our meal among other things), I don't think the novelty or the food itself is worth it.

The host could not find my name initially and took me to two other peoples tables for me to tell him no not me. The third try he got it right.
The food for the price was disappointing. The pasta had barely any tomato sauce on it and barely any cheese. It was cold and hard. I did not send it back because I was so frustrated as it was Christmas Day and I’m not crazy about sending food back.
The lady waiting tables and the bar was great and attentive. She is the only reason I gave a fair rating or it would have been overall poor.

It was cold as they were having some heat issues. Lasagna was a little over cooked and chicken was lukewarm. The server, however, was awesome. I just think it was off because it was Christmas Day. Might try it again.

Sorry, but this had to be the worst (and most overpriced) Italian food I've ever had. It's sad when the best part of your meal is a $30.00 Antipasto Salad. Fetticini Alfredo that was so dry we had to ask for extra alfredo sauce just to choke it down. Veal Parm. so rubbery that a knife barely cut thru it.
This will definitely be the last time I go to this restaurant.
If the added $$ is supposed to be for their unique atmosphere....save your money.

Everything ended up turning out fairly well. Had a bumpy start; would have been able to tell server, Ariel, was new even without her saying so. Very sweet and no qualms against her, but she could have used some more help or assistance from coworkers since she seemed lost half of the meal. We either waited a long time (40 minutes to order entrees after we sat, 20 or so to get proper sangria service) and we had to repeat ourselves a few times. By the end, however, everyone has full and happy and she was able to finish the meal on a strong note. So despite the service hiccup, it was an enjoyable meal.

We were the only people in one of the rooms so it was very quiet other than all the employees standing around talking. Too bad they weren’t talking to us more which would have made the service a little better. For being dead we didn’t get much attention.
