Great We there for birthday party and great environment and service for our party of 12
I've been to this establishment many times, and on those occasions I would've been more than happy to give "5 stars" for each category. This time, however, was a little disappointing. We had a party of seven, three of which were experiencing Buca for the first time. The table where we were sat was a smaller table. We had three members on one side and squeezed in four on the other side. Every time my son moved, I was elbowed in the side. I had to eat with my arms in a near complete immobile state due to the fact that if I moved I would elbow someone. Our server was very pleasant, however, when it came time for our tickets she was too involved with singing "Happy Birthday" on four different occasions. We finally received our tickets but due to the lack of a writing utensil for anyone at our table, we had to wait for her to check on us to let her know of this situation. . . And no, none of us had a pen/pencil in our possession. I would have really enjoyed it much more at a larger table. One of the "first timers" in our group suggested that maybe serve some of the entrees on a bed of pasta. I feel that is a feasible suggestion. Will I return? Yes. Will I recommend it? Yes.
Service was good. Loud environment. Our pizza tasted like a store bought frozen pizza. Nothing special that would make us go back.
Excellent. Came from Maine to visit family. We love this restaurant. So good.
Our server, Steve, was very attentive to our group of 11. We were celebrating my mom's birthday and he made sure she was taken care of from secret drink order, her own birthday candle stick and buca birthday song.
Long waits, poor service, just OK food for the high price.
Another enjoyable evening meal. The salmon was great with take home the extra served. My wife ordered the chicken with Alfredo sauce instead of marinara and found it delicious.
When I come across a great service I like to give them recognition by name and Thomas certainly deserves that and more.
Everything was so good from appetizer to dessert. Our server Chelsea was very friendly and helpful. Can’t wait to go back.
Unfortunately our experience was less than good. Our experience unpacked as follows. The atmosphere and seating were compelling and enjoyable for our group of 10. The service was attentive and helpful, however they were a bit sloppy and inexperienced. One server was rotating the lazy Susan too quickly causing the freshly placed bottle of wine to slide off and knock a drink into one of our colleague's lap. This was after a similar 'near miss' with an appetizer platter. Okay, accidents happen? The serving sizes were huge and timely, which is good. However the food quality/flavor was marginal. The lasagna was over-cooked, chicken stuffed with broccoli was bland, and baked ziti lacked flavor. The chopped antipasto salad was very good. It was 'bulk, bland, caloric intake'. The desert sampler trays were huge. The chocolate cake, cheesecake, and Italian cream cake, were all excellent.
Pope room was great for a large party, one large round table with lazy Susan so food could be passed easily
Lasagna was mushy and barely any cheese. I think our family will pass on this restaurant.
Wonderful and fun atmosphere with family style menu! Lots of appetizer and entree options to choose from. No one leaves Buca di Beppo hungry that’s for certain.
They were late seating us, late taking our order and late cashing us out. Drinks, appetizers and entrees all arrived at the same time. Management was Unapologetic.
I made reservations to celebrate 2 birthdays in our party. Our waitress was slow and seemed a bit confused/ disorganized. I understand that night was busy. I have been to this restaurant several times in the past but this was th worst service I received there. They did not sing happy birthday. There other tables that were seat well after our party and was served food well before our party. We ordered our food pretty early due the fact we are familiar with the menu. We discussed our issues with the manager and he was completely useless. He acted as if he didn’t know what to say. So overall it was a terrible dinner.
Food was outstanding but the wait staff was very short which equated to a very long dinner. The server was good but was trying to cover way too many tables.
Total Disaster. We were seated with no silverware or napkins for 30+ minutes. Nothing went well and even though manager brought drinks and food late, he never apologized. Waited forever for everything. Will never go back.
We reserved a table for a party of 20 for a surprise birthday dinner and it was great overall. We were seated as promptly as possible and had a great area kind of secluded for our party to dine in together. The service was great and the food was excellent. I will definitely be going back for dinner, and appreciate that they accommodate large reservations.
We attended on Christmas day. It was packed. We utilized the online reservations two days prior. We did end up waiting about 45 minutes, but it was Christmas, we expected it. The waitress was exceptionally attentive, friendly, helpful, and prompt to take care of us; even though she was clearly busy. The food was truly awesome: chicken with artichokes, brussel sprouts, garlic mashed potatoes, and Italian Creme cake (lemon with raspberry topping--DELICIOUS!) was our food choices. We weren't disappointed, and enjoyed the leftovers the next day. Neither of us had been in years, but we won't make that mistake again. We'll be returning very soon. Even though the food was great, our waitress made the difference. She was very much compensated for being great. TIP YOUR SERVER WELL WHEN THEY DO GOOD WORK!!
Food was served at just above room temperature. One selection had the chicken
missing from the serving. I think the staff was over worked Christmas Day.
The server tried to fix the mistakes. The manager helped on the final bill.
Everyone was very friendly. The restaurant just needs to get everything
together to make it a great dining experience.
Excellent customer service.
Buco’s is always great. For 2, or for a group. Take home leftovers are the best.
It was what you would expect from Bucca. People everywhere. But once you get a table, the service was great and the food as well. One of our favorite places.
Our table service was excellent. The waiter was very attentive. Our meal was delicious from start to end.
Just going out to dinner
Great food, extremely disappointed with service. I will come back but will make sure to get a different server.
Thanksgiving with family - it was great! All the fixings for the day! Thank you!!!!
Loved it! Will be coming back once every 2 weeks
One of our favorites. Love the ambiance and of.course, the food.
This was my first visit to the Buca in Louisville, KY. I have frequent the Columbus, OH location near the Blue Jackets Stadium, but I must say that every location has surpassed my expectations. I think I enjoy the food the most at the Buca, but the service runs a very close second. My friend and I held reservations for a Friday night, and as it turned out, we finished our prior engagement ahead of schedule. We made it to the Buca an hour early and asked for our reserved seats ahead of time. Although we had to wait for few minutes, the staff accommodated and delivered us a great table. All of this occurred mind you while parties the size of 35 people, 16 people, and 8 people, constantly entered the establishment . The Buca staff was appropriately trained and never hesitated when the location became packed. The staff is super helpful with finding the right choice for you on the menu. We ordered the small sampler and split the leftovers. Our waitress did not give us a guilt trip when we refused to order desert, but it was certainly our lost. It was a family friendly environment with huge tables and stumbling waitresses. We recommend you give yourself plenty of time to enjoy your visit, and remember to look for coupons that are posted for special discounts.
The waitress was very unpleasant poor attitude , didn’t return to check on our party .. we had to ask her for water wouldn’t return until 10 min later .. lost one of my parties credit card and then charged us wrong on one of our bills
I️ made the reservation to celebrate a birthday and stated that in my reservation and reminded the waitress, however the request was ignored. They were out of lasagna at 6:30 which I found to be odd especially since it’s one of their signature dishes. Our food was cold and for the price paid I️t definitely was not worth I️t. By the end of our meal my husband, whose birthday we were celebrating, looked at me and said he couldn’t believe he was saying I️t, but he had no desire to return. We used to enjoy this restaurant, and I’m not sure if this was just a one time bad experience or if the restaurant has just declined.
Food was great, workers were friendly, and the interior design of Buca di Beppi is awesome!
First time...a little bit of a wait beyond my reservation time but well worth it. This is my new favorite Italian food place. Big family style portions of fresh Italian cuisine. Friendly staff!
Buca di Beppo never disappoints. Food is delicious and service is prompt and friendly. Very good wine list.
Great food and staff. Took my dad out to dinner, which was his first time at Buca, and he was very impressed.
The meatballs were bland, needed more spices, also the sauce was runny needed to be thicker. The Italian sausage, salad and garlic bread were excellent.
The good was very good. One of the best calamari I've had. Glad they are no longer over grinding the meat for the meatballs.
I've been to other location many times. Service here was terrible. Requested to change table (while a bunch of tables were available ours was right in the middle of the room), the staff said check the "availability (even WIDE open)" and never came back. Our waiter tried to sell a bottle of wine more than 5 times even we said we'd like a glass of wife cuz we'd switch to other kind of drinks. Kept suggesting meat dishes even I kept saying my friend was vegetarian. It was just so annoying and uncomfortable.
Buca is one of favorite places to celebrate family occasion s. The food is delicious, the staff is friendly, and we usually have a few leftovers for lunch the next day!
Our server Lavon was phenomenal!
