It was pretty much the same experience as usual, except it wasn’t as crowded of course and everything was distanced, but it was still great. The food was great and it was an excellent dining experience.

Not as good as it once was. Server was attentive, but got my drink order wrong. Ordered a pasta dish with chicken and it tasted like they used cut up frozen chicken. Tasted like dirt. I remember years ago they served you a whole chicken breast. I was disappointed. I didn't complain to the server.

Both the food and service were exceptional. Only criticism I could offer is the noise level. A bit too noisy for my. Open Table refers to that noise level as “energetic”. To me it’s just plain too loud. But overall, I’m looking forward to my return trip.

We had a reservation and were seated about ten minutes past our reservation time. it was understandable because it was valentines weekend, so it was pretty busy. the waiting area was small and the hostesses held the door open when they saw someone come up the sidewalk. The door was open much longer than necessary and it was pretty cold out. We got to our table and it was a booth. There were nine of us and they put us in a boot suites for six people and added a chair on the end. My wife is pregnant and definitely couldn’t sit in the booth because it was so tight, so she got the chair at the end. We squeezed everyone else in(6 adults and two kids) in the very small booth. Our server was probably the worst part. She didn’t give refills on drinks unless we asked and didn’t bring the bread until after the food was out. We also ordered espresso, which was a disappointment. The menu labeled it a Nespresso drink. I was under the expression it was going to be more of a latte, but it was just a shot of espresso. There was no description, so I’m not sure if it was even right. Four of us ordered this drink and the server brought out a handful of splendas and a few creams. We don’t use Splenda and never asked for it, so we thought that was a weird choice. The bathrooms were absolutely disgusting. There was wet toilet paper around the toilet in both bathrooms and it was just really grimey. Definitely not somewhere I wanted my toddler sitting. We got the penne alla vodka, which was delicious. The food is the only thing that will bring us back. Our particular server and the atmosphere was just not the best.

Valentines Day so you expect it to be busy, however somehow it seemed like there was a lot of double booking. We had reservations at 7:45 and got our table around 8:50. Like I said we expected a wait so no big deal but hopefully if we come back on a busier night the double booking issue will be fixed.

I do want to shout out the hostess running check ins and getting people seated. She was incredible! There were upset customers understandably some patient and some you could tell never worked in customer service any time by how they were acting. She handled it all wonderfully and came across calm and understanding with all of them.

Made a great night into a bad night. Had reservations checked in 20 mins before time and had to wait over a hour past our time and then got taking from the hostess stand through the kitchen 4 time to 4 different tables and non of the ready. So had to wait for the hostess and follow her once again, The food was really off that night. Salads looked a day old and the dinner was just warm at best. Dessert was the best. Not worth 80 dollars

I had reservations for 7:15 pm. We weren’t seated until 8:30 pm. We enjoyed the bar area while we waited. The bartender was very good and was the only bartender. Our server was extremely slow. None of us in my party of 4 remember her asking us for refills. I brought my friend here for his first time as this is one of my favorite restaurants. I travel an hour to get here. My friend enjoyed the food but the wait was not acceptable. If I have reservations, I should be seated within 15-20 minutes of that time. This trip was very disappointing. 😔

We had not been there for about two years. We made reservations and got there about 10 minutes early. It was Valentines day and quite busy. We had to wait only a few minutes and we were seated. Menu has change a little and we did not get bread with our salad , but we asked for some and it came right out. It's very good. The chicken pasta we got was very good too. We only had water to drink and the bill came out to around $60 with tip so it was a little high. But there was enough left overs for us to have lunch the next day. Over all very good dinner and service.

I chose Buca Di Beppo to meet my daughter for a dinner date and I always value what little time we are able to share together so therefore obviously very choosy about the places we made so that we were able to best utilize our time shared we had an amazing dinner my daughter had the baked salmon with garlic butter sauce and I had the baked ziti. Both of our dinners were awesome and the baked bread that is complementary before meals was amazing as well very relaxed and warm and inviting atmosphere and head up in a different company would’ve been a very romantic atmosphere this nice two times my daughter and I have met and had dinner here and we will again I’m sure of it

We had a reservation but when we arrived they said there was a 45-minute delay on reservations. Ugh. Found out they had several staff members called in sick with the flu. It was New Year’s Eve. 😕 kind of doubting these staff people had the flu. But we understood they were short staffed. Our poor waiter. There were 8 of us. I ordered my drink first. Then he left. Came back and took 2 more drink orders and a salad and appetizer order. Then came back with the 2 drinks that were ordered separately. Then came back with appetizers and salad. Still no drink for me! I was not happy. Finally had to ask for it. Then he goes to bar and we see it from our booth and he brings it to me. It had no ice in it and was lukewarm but tasted fine. Think it had been sitting h up there forever. 🙄other than that the food was great.

When we showed up they claimed that they were "behind on reservations" and we had to wait almost 30 minutes for our table. We asked them how long it would be and they said that they had put us behind walk in people even though we had a reservation because they had been waiting for 30 minutes. Then once we got our seats after explaining that we had reservations and asked to talk to a manager we sat for 20 minutes without seeing a server. Once the server showed up she tried, but the kitchen brought our food out in a 30 minute window causing some of the group to eat early forcing the others to wait, then the others to wait for the rest to get food. It was a very awful experience that will stop us from choosing this restaurant in the future.
