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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

We were dining as a family of 4, running a little late for our reservation and the hostess when we called to notify them was able to make corrections and accommodate us. We were promptly seated. Our server was attentive without being overly so. We were disappointed though with the Veal marsala we ordered. The sauce was too sweet for marsala and somewhat thick and gummy. The veal, while thin, was not as tender as I expected. We had also ordered ravioli with meat sauce - glad we did as my husband and son needed to eat some of our dish to satisfy themselves - and the ravioli were large, cheesy and the sauce was good and spicy.

We were in at 11 am on a Sunday. The food was great, service was great. The restaurant wasn't too busy at that time. We ordered chicken sultembocca, carbonara, caprese salad and 4 cheese platter. We were celebrating a birthday and thru sang their funny song and p placed a pointing hand that said celebrating my birthday next to the birthday boy. It was a great time!

Third or 4th time I have had a meal here. Usually dinner, but this time lunch. It was the first Buca we went to about 7 years ago. Hasn't changed. Predictable, good and cost-effective. Since we came here for lunch, the parking lot was not crowded at all. But beware a weekend night, or maybe any dinnertime.

Wishing for a re-do. The restaurant was apparently understaffed. Despite our 7:30 reservations, we were seated after 8. The hostess indicated that they were 'waiting for silverware' as the holdup. ??? Once seated, we observed multiple empty tables ~ supporting the impression of the lack of staffing. As we were a party of 10, multiple deliveries of food were anticipated ~ however, the over 10 minute lag between delivery of entrees was extreme. Particularly off-putting was the fact that the women's restroom was out of order - with a handwritten sign on the men's room that it was now a "family restroom". Late seating, poor service, and lack of facilities. I cannot imagine that this is the standard that Buca holds for it's chain. Poor form.
