Haven’t visited in several years. The facility has been very neglected. It appears very old and dirty now. Bathroom was disgusting. The food was ok, not as good as I remember. They were out of lasagna!! Service was but rushed and neglected.

Not sure when I will go back. Nothing of this visit was enriching to return.

Waitress was terrible. Had to ask for bread which automatically should be brought out. Overcharged my card. When I ask about it she didn’t know how to fix it had to go get manager. They always seat me at the bar area and it’s always loud in that area.

Server seemed a bit off. Constantly miscounting. We didn’t get bread until 5 minutes before we received our meals. Sat next to a party of 20 people and they were constantly walking in between our table & theirs-mind you that there is no room between each table. Salmon could’ve been cooked longer.

Food was amazing. We had a large party and they only refilled drinks once. Looks a little understaffed but the food made up for it.

We held the get together for my partner's birthday, and Bucca di Beppo and their staff did everything in their power to make the night the best it could be. I was very happy with every detail of the night from food, service, ambience, etc.

The one thing I did not like was that my server would only bring us new glasses of wine once we finished current wine. I don’t know if she was to busy or what but I have never experienced that ever, what difference would it have made. I was paying for it anyway. Strange

They seated a party of a bunch of loud kids near us. Our server was terrible. We got our appetizers then she never came back to take our dinner order. Drinks were not good. Normally we get a loaf of bread and she said it cost so we ordered garlic bread then they brought us free bread. Just terrible experience do not get seated in bar area

We went here last minute because my husbands birthday plans fell through. Buca delivered with great food and fun times. Our server Kalani was amazing, made us feel special and sang the birthday song even though we are old folks. We felt comfortable and well taken care of. Thanks so much.

Had an amazing time for my fiancés birthday on 11/15! This was the only restaurant where I could easily reserve a table for 12 around dinner time. Had a great “family feel” to it, and the food was OUTSTANDING! We loved their lasagna and salmon dishes. Also, our server was incredibly kind and helpful! It was fun when they came out and sang the Buca Birthday song too. Thanks for a wonderful night and some amazing memories! ☺️

If a lot of poor quality, overpriced food with lackluster service is what you are seeking then you will be in Nirvana. They cater to large parties who have drunk enough to be unable to know what they are eating. By the time you get the food, you’ll be blaming the alcohol for your inability to taste any flavor. It is not the alcohol or COVID. The room temperature of the food is considerably warmer than the service. Have fun
