The food was very good and perfect for a large celebration. Because of the family style servings, guests were able to try all sorts of dishes that they wouldn't have been able to otherwise.

We had a large party for a graduation dinner and they seated us on time. The service was good too.

Thank you.

Took my boyfriend here for his birthday. We both loved the food and the atmosphere was fun. Not really a two person restaurant as everything is served family style with VERY LARGE portions. Lots of leftovers for the next couple of days though!!

First, I would like to preface this review by stating that since my fiancé and I are paying for a wedding we have not been going on dates very often. This was supposed to be our break away from the mundane and a nice night out as one of our last times before the wedding planning gets intense, therefore, I may be a little harsh here. I made a reservation yesterday on Saturday for Sunday dinner. When we arrived we checked right in no problem and were told it would only be a few minutes until we were seated. No problem. While we were waiting the manager (I’m assuming because of how he was dressed) came around the corner yelling that he “needed singers” (I’m also assuming for a birthday). When he didn’t get the amount he needed he came back up to the “lobby” and yelled again the he “needed singers, now!” And then proceeded to snap his fingers at the very people trying to manage the crowds at the door. There were several large parties there waiting to be seated. When it was our turn to be seated we were taken to a booth in the bar area and the same manager whipped around the corner and told the hostess that she couldn’t seat us there and because that wait person “couldn’t take one more table” and to “take us back to the lobby and we would be seated in a few minutes when another table came available” there was no apology to us and as a matter of fact the manager didn’t even look at us when saying these things to the hostess. It left a bad taste in my mouth but I didn’t want it to ruin the night. The hostess kindly directed us to another section and we were sat immediately.
The service for our table did not get any better. I do not remember the name of our server but to me he could’ve been having an “off” night. Nothing majorly wrong on his part but it was clear he was in a hurry to get us out of there and his focus was not on providing good service. We tipped nonetheless but this experience has certainly left a damper on our impression of Buca and I doubt we return.

we love this place for family gatherings, but the service yesterday was less than stellar. We ordered a bottle of wine that never arrived, beers that never came and bread that never made it to the table.

I would recommend to all wait staff to NEVER state the following to customers : "I've had a long week, I am tired and forgot your drinks....". We do not want to hear excuses.

Have always loved Buca until this trip. Immediately could tell by looking at the menu that the prices had gone way up. When the food arrived it was ice cold like it had been ready for awhile and was just sitting there. As sad as I am to say this because i have always loved Buca, this was probably my last visit.

The waitress did go and get the manager when I first alerted her of the food being cold and he comped my dish which I was thankful, but my wife's dish was even colder

The food is good and I liked the family sized meals, but the decorations were a bit inappropriate honestly. If you have young children, or don’t want to see scantily clad women, I wouldn’t really recommend this place. But otherwise our server was amazing and the food was very good.

I really enjoy this place. Love it that they walk you thru the kitchen and you can eat there as well...makes you feel very old school place. Like the décor and the table are far apart.

You get a very large portion and I think the prices are reasonable.

they where out of the smaller size Pellegrino so my only choice was a large....I think they should have offered me the large for the price of the small since I did not have a choice and I was the only one drinking it.

The quality of food and service and the overall experience at Buca di Beppo have been in steady decline for several years, and our latest visit confirmed that trajectory. It used to be one of our favorite dinner spots, but it seems now we only leave discouraged and disappointed. We will return once more to use an unspent gift card balance, but unless things change radically, that will be our last visit.

Food was good and I would go again. Biggest issue I had was the portion size which they charge plenty for. Unless everyone wants to share you’ll be paying a premium. We enjoy the spaghetti and meatballs which is what we normally always order.

We must have missed the boat somewhere, because the last time we went to Buca, we don't remember having to order for 3 people. We are only two, but the menu is made for 3 or 4-5. Meaning, you have to pay for food you don't want and then take it home. The food was very good, but the practice of making you buy food for 3, is not appreciated and so we'll not be going back.

Everything was excellent from the food to the service. The only thing I would like to add very big disappointment, was that I could not pay with cash with a coupon. I think it's ludicrous that you cannot pay with cash because you're using a coupon. I was told by an employee that there was problems with theft with Buca Di Beppo employees company wide. Something to do with using a coupon and using cash to pay for your bill. I think there could be a whole lot more fraud with credit cards and debit cards then there would be with using cash. If You're having an internal issue with your employees don't take it out on your customers. People who only want to pay with cash will stop coming to your restaurant. Please fix this so I can use cash again with a coupon or I will not be back.
Also took away your create your own pasta with all the different vegetables and add ons you could create. Please bring back the create your own pasta program to the menu.

We had a much better Christmas dinner this year than last! We only had to wait a few minutes to be seated, last year we had a reservation somewhere else and still had to wait over 1/2 hour to be seated. The food was great. It really seemed like a family celebration. The staff seemed happy to be there even though it was a holiday. Everyone had a good time and left feeling full. We would do it again.
